    HF-1 the Insanity Continues

    Excuse my ignorance, but why are HF-1s fetching so much cash lately?

    Ah, I see. I'm kind of afraid to modify them, but maybe someday. My first reaction when I saw how much they are going for lately, was "Wow.. I probably shouldn't wear these to school anymore."

    How's the Koss KSC75?

    As far as bang for the buck, they're excellent. Very good sound quality for a $30 headphone. I got mine for about $15-20 a year or two ago and they are running strong. They don't look very cool, in my opinion, but I still walk the dog in them most days. Mainly I use them around the house...

    Excuse my ignorance, but why are HF-1s fetching so much cash lately?

    Hi all, I've been a Head-Fier for years now, but I've hardly ventured away from the Music/Off-Topic forums for the last couple years. After lots of research, I bought some HD-580s, HF-1s, E2Cs and KSC-75s and decided to never look back, for the sake of my wallet. So it goes without saying...

    Question: A watch with fixed hands and rotating faces?

    It had this sort of style, except the full face was exposed rather than covered, and it was round rather than square. These are awesome but they are $400 unfortunately. A little too pricey for this stage of my life. Nixon

    Safe Lyrics Site?

    Seconded, is the best, without a doubt. I have a lot of fun reading other people's insights about what they think the song means, and how they decipher the lyrics. Also often people will post backstories about the musician that opens your eyes to the perspective of the person...

    How NOT to rob a liquor store :)

    Ahahahaha oh my god, that had me in stitches. So damn funny. You totally know what's gonna happen next, but when it happens it's still unexpectedly hilarious.

    Vancouver – Used CD stores – Are these any good?

    I definitely second those that Camille suggested, especially Zulu Records. I've been to Zulu many times but haven't been to Scratch or Red Cat, from what I hear they are similar, maybe smaller stores? In Zulu when you go in, there is a CD side of the store (left side/main entrance) and a...

    Has anyone here ever worked at Earls Restaurant?

    After a couple days of not getting a call back, the guy called me today at my other job, and asked me if I could come in tomorrow at 3:30pm until 11:30pm. On Halloween night. It's funny, my first reaction was: "well, bussing home should be an interesting adventure" but after thinking about it...

    What do you do to stay energetic and positive?

    To introduce this question, I'd like to start off by telling you why I'm asking it: Sometimes I find myself drained or lethargic and once I'm in that state, it's that much harder to get up out of it. Lately I've found that a good way to stay energetic and maintain a positive mindset is simply...

    Has anyone here ever worked at Earls Restaurant?

    I am being considered as a candidate for a job opening at Earls Restaurant, I think in the next couple days I will know if I'm hired or not. The job is for kitchen work, ie. being a cook, and normally I would not be eligible for this type of job, seeing as how I have zero experience as a cook...

    Is this funny?

    I'm with roadtonowhere on this one: Love a good laugh at someone's expense, but ultimately, it didn't make me laugh cause the lady reacting only in laughter but not compassion, was to me not funny at all, in fact I would probably slap her in the mouth if that were my kid and she sat there...

    Help!: I'm looking to choose a profession, but am feeling lost on the whole concept..

    Hey folks! So here's my situation. I've been out of high school for 3 years now, working full time at a meat counter, and saving tuition money while trying to figure out what I want to do with my life, career-wise. After a few years of that, I have the tuition money saved up but I really...

    Favorite TV show? (i.e. what's on your TIVO?)

    It's all about Arrested Development. Nothing compares in my books. Then, there's Scrubs, Lost, Family Guy, The Office, Sons and Daughters, Desperate Housewives, and of course 24.

    Arrested Development cancelled? The possible demise of an amazing tv show.

    Keep in mind that, though very rare, there is a chance the writers just made that up for humour's sake. Though, being a fan for a long time, they really don't tend to make stuff up very often, even the minute details are actually real or logically explainable.

    Arrested Development cancelled? The possible demise of an amazing tv show.

    ... [SPOILER ALERT!]Well, as it turns out (because of Lindsay being adopted) the GM and Maeby stuff wasn't incestuous, nor was Lindsay/Michael, nor GOB/Lindsay, nor even Nellie/Michael... did I miss any other combinations? There were a lot, indeed. That being said, when GOB went to hit on...
