    Not as much as you Russ. He's not able to say, "Happy Birthday Uncle Dad!".

  • Re: What got me started...

    What got me started in the hobby was listening to my Uncle Tommy's system when I was 8 years old. He had this little tube amp that was probably no more than 8 watts powering a set of Klipsch Klipschorns. It was at that very moment that a seed was planted.

    Fast forward a couple of years and I finally talked my mom into giving me her modest stereo system that consisted of an LP player that stacked LP's, a Scott receiver and a pair of Scott speakers. Within 2 years, I had replaced the entire system and 2 years after that, I was the first in the neighborhood to have this new thing called a CD player. One of those that had a 6 disc cartridge and an additional CD tray.

    Fast forward to today, I have come within easy reaching distance of achieving everything I had ever wanted out of a system, many aspects of which have far surpassed what I had ever thought possible out of a rig.

    Thank you so much Uncle Tommy for planting that seed!!!

    My wife wouldn't expect me to endure the movie...just saying
    Okay, that's a given. This is your wife and she knows you. I know you. I wouldn't expect the same. You have history. My wife and have history.

    Given a "somewhat new" relationship? Different story.

    If I met the woman of my dreams? If she wanted to watch Opera? Well, I would not agree to it at first (obviously) but if it was in her heart and this is what she wanted to watch?

    I would leave her. This is me. I can not STAND opera. Same thing with Rap.

    That said, anything thing else we both agree on and are cool with? Even if it was something that wasn't......let's say.....100% cool with me on all levels?

    If I loved that woman? If I wanted to be with that woman? If I adored that woman? If that woman was one that no other woman could top?

    I'd watch the damned movie. No questions asked and I would watch it again 10X only because to be in this wonderful woman's life.....?......it's something that I would never question. When you love someone? You know it. When you want to be with someone? You know it.

    When you want to be like Bruce? Leave the woman.

    There are two paths here in life.

    Don't be like Bruce........or?

    Embrace that woman in so much love that it works for life.

    Anything else is BS on any and all levels........and IMNSHO? Not worth it at all.
