  • Patricia Barber is great, and many (all?) of her CDs are excellent recordings. Holly Cole, Melody Gardot, and Tierney Sutton are also favorites.
  • Decisions, decisions. Trying to cram a weekend into one night. Music is cruising now, but need to think of what to watch in the the HT. I received both Kong Skull Island, and The Fifth Element in 4K UHD this week. Now which to watch later. …

  • Turned the stereo on three hours ago, sitting here with beer one, and enjoying both. First time the stereo is on, and first beer, since last Saturday. I stopped using the stereo during the week in the summer since it also means the AC needs to b…
  • I was just looking at the XE. It is nice, but it was $56K with the options I selected.
  • The two bring out the best in each other, and increase the pleasure for me. It is a symbiotic relationship. Otherwise, it is simply background music, and is overkill for that.
  • And I agree with Skip. No alcohol for me tonight. Finally decided to stop Friday/Saturday night drinking, and only do 1 night a week. That is a 50% reduction in alcohol. Then might cut that down to twice a month for another 50% reduction. …

  • Haven't heard anything recently about Jaguar, but in the past they had a reputation as a very unreliable car. Of course, that applies to a lot of car manufacturers.
  • So far it seems the BMW 3 series is a good choice between handling and a touch of luxury. Now I need to make sure the stereo is also up to par.

  • Lock up your daughters, and hide your wives. Especially if they are blonde.

  • Before my current car, I had an 87 VW (Blue) Fox for 17 years. That makes two cars in 30 years. Time flies. Anyway, the Fox was okay, but also a piece of junk. I realize I can't judge all VW cars based on this one, so I will add VW onto the lis…

  • heiney9 wrote: » $10,500 off sticker really makes it a no-brainer on the Hyundai. H9 Of course then you have to wonder just how much the price is inflated. I assume the dealer wants to make a couple of dollars.
  • I just looked up the 2017 GS F, and it is $84K to start. That is double what I want to pay. Not this lifetime, assuming I never hit the lottery.
  • Hey. What's one letter? Other than maybe $150K. LOL

  • When I say mountains I mean CA mountains in the spring, summer, fall. If I decide to try skiing again then I will go with the AWD CX-5, or NSX. I drive everyday in CA commute traffic, and a manual doesn't bother me. However, I once had knee sur…
  • Lots of good info here. Most likely this will be the last car I buy, so it has to last, and be fun. At least a little.
  • Already have it on BR.
  • Blade Runner is also coming out in 4K UHD. I must have purchased that movie 4-5 times already.
  • I will do that Monday. Thanks.
  • I will find out this week. So far the comments on other sites has been positive, and I hope I can add to that trend.
  • Okay. I never look at Audiogon. His website has been down for a while now.
  • HDMI is a tricky SOB. I have been using, with no issues, a 5 meter Pangea I bought years ago. After I upgraded my TV and BR player to 4K, I figured I may as well get a better HDMI cable. So, I bought a 4 meter Cambridge Audio HDMI for 4K UHD T…
  • Basically all food is genetically modified by breeding selection over the years. Doing the modification via Petri dish is the only difference now. However, I will admit that the potential for creating a disaster with genetic modification is certa…
  • To follow up on my previous 'cables first' post, it was a while before I replaced the Panamax with the Shunyata Triton. The price of the Triton, $5K, scared me for a long time. When I finally did make the leap to the Triton the improvement over th…
