Post your non-classical music (book, magazine, garden tool, sex aid, etc.) purchases in this thread.

I bought this today.



5-ply...unrivaled luxury

Edit: hmmmm....I wonder how they tested it. How do they determine a test winner? On second thought, I don't think I want to know  ;D

Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."

So you could make use of that 5-ply too, I guess.  ;D

Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening. Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Thanks for reviving this thread, my friend. :)

Music: Just recently I purchased some Rihanna tracks (I know, I know. They were for my wife! No, really!) and NIA by Blackalicious (hip-hop without the gangsta sh*t).

Books: ONE FOR SORROW by Christopher Barzak and THE QUIET GIRL by Peter Hoeg (in which the protagonist hears in musical keys and is a Bach aficionado. An extraordinary thriller.)

This:



Borrowed this from Netflix and was so hooked I decided I had to have it. Not quite on the level of Planet Earth, but for an avid birdwatcher like myself an absolute must. Just amazing footage.

Great set there Mensch!  By the way, we have a number of nuthatches (red and white breasted) at our feeders for the first time ever.  I guess a drought in Canada is driving them south and a few came our way.  Have you heard about this?

Wow George, seeing those Queen album covers brought back memories for me. Queen were the first band I seriously 'got into' back in '77 when I was 11 years old. I saved my pocket money to buy those very albums. The Game was a couple of years later and wasn't a classic 'Queen' album for me although it was a mega-hit for them in the States. I'm not interested in Queen music anymore [can't stand the sight of Mercurys posing and pouting] but I still appreciate their contribution to interesting melodic rock music and retain a soft spot for their first six albums and the warm memories they invoke.  :)

Well, I've wanted one of these for about a year and I've decided to splash out and buy myself one. I've bought it from a dealer on Amazon which, including the freight costs, is still about NZ$800.00 better than any deal I can get here.

I've really been needing the telephoto lens this season so I'm very excited to have this on the way.  :)

Yeah, they were the first band that clicked for me. My first LP was a gift - their Greatest Hits. The above masterings are said by many to be the best available for those albums. I've already heard The Game and I am very impressed. I lost interest right after The Game, but still love the first 8, except for maybe Jazz.  :-\
