when hearing of a shipping mishap involving audio equipment you think of polkfarmboy.

you snicker when someone makes a comment about black paint.

you remember when VR3 was Sid the Kid.

you know about Ben's silver cables.

you remember when "Looking for Misc. Audio Deals of the Day," *"What Are You Listening To," and "Post a Picture...Any Picture" were new threads.

you know about (and probably love) the Jersey Grands.

    Or, it's a red herring, and while you are out of the house the guys who bought all your stuff from the ad she put on Craigslist will be at your house to haul it all away? Color me conspiratorial. :)
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    I’ve been here long enough to miss PFB’s shipping disasters. The only thing that is close to as enjoyable is the cable threads now a days.

    .....When you remember the moderators (all of them) posting things daily basis that would have gotten get them banned as of late (until we went mod-free).

    When you remember trolls like riggins and the blokes from England with their "dirty" forum where everything was sexual in nature, even something as innocent as speaker wire.

    When Polk or Polk representatives actually backed Polkfests, made T-shirts, gave a way gear and showcased their latest and greatest.

    When Mark Suskind would show up drunker than a skunk at a Polkfest rambling that it was unwise to have toe in on a speaker setup that wasn't an SDA.....further rambling on that toe OUT actually had a better soundstage...

    John was still sledding down his driveway in Minnesota...with funky thoughts of Bob Carver.
    You have been here too long if you now have Alzheimer’s :p;) ... I lived in Indiana when I joined, haven’t been on a sled since 1977, and it was Miss Sonic Holography I was having the funky thoughts about, though Bob is a looker when he puts on that slinky red dress.
