    That dude was coached (poorly). He really likes a bitter IPA.

    Some IPA's taste like the smell of a pinecone IMHO, but when you get a good one they are very good.

    Dogfish in general do a good job

    spent some quality time last night and this morning trying to resurrect an adorable NAD 1600 preamp/tuner that belongs to a hifi colleague who lives across the river. I did not succeed. I did get it to power on (it was dead as received, but that seems to be related to some multipin connectors), but cannot get good quality audio out of it. Assessed and evaluated all of the usual, typical issues -- 'tis a puzzlement.

    Meanwhile, the preamp section in this monstrosity works OK (the power amp section is at least partly toast, so it has been deactivated)... so I offered to pass it along to the NAD's owner when I return the latter to him as-is. No phono section in it, though, unfortunately.

    I think that may be the spiral staircase carved out of a single piece of wood.

    Speaking of castles...

    The scale and sheer beauty always astounds me. B)

    Some are built on mountain tops and some are over a hundred feet tall. And it seems there were PLANS drawn out for such builds. Just like Cathedrals too.

    Biltmore Estate...Amazing symmetry. <3

    The manpower to build these buildings and the carpentry we've just seen blows my mind since I know a little about that trade.
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.
