Deep thoughts - Friend, Male, from Amsterdam

Friend

Spending quality time with family these days. For the first time in years I felt welcome. A happy family is easily taken for granted... Jul 31, 2022

      Life goes on. One house-mate lived as a junkie in the house. I am out. No more junkies and sad victims in my life. Get it together or leave.

      I cannot help it. Daft Punk, the album "Random Access Memories" is one of the best things ever. It has to be played. Makes me feel human...

        It wasn’t the ‘new Daft Punk album’ I expected, but it’s the one I have come to love the most.

        This one and "Discovery" make my heart skip a beat. There are not enough words to express why.

        I agree, Discovery and RAM are their two best albums, and the two I listen to most.

      NL is almost returning to pre-Covid-19 life. I do not trust it. The inconsistent measures can lead to a clusterfuck. Avoid busy places...

        My wife (an MD) has seen a marked difference in clinic with omicron between mRNA vaxxed, J&J vaxxed and unvaxxed. Unvaxxed have had way worse symptoms, J&J has been almost as bad as unvaxxed and mRNA vaxxed are almost all very mild. That is her firsthand observation.

        @DigMe thanks, it's good to hear on the ground reports. I'm boosted on Pfizer, but clinically vulnerable. I've kept informed via research papers and following a few epidemiologists with a good track record. However I'm now faced with either shielding alone for an endless duration, or mitigate where poss., enforce FFP3/N95 mask usage, hope there are no escape variants, and roll the dice.

        I didn't trust it to hold during the trough before Delta. My wife, a Mistress of Public Health, thought I was nuts when I insisted on masks. I'm sticking with that till the Israelis give the O.K. When you're attacked for 70+ years, you get good at war and medicine.

      The M50X is serious value for money. Think of it as a PortaPro after an epic transformation. Dude turns into Chuck Norris, impressive...

        When I ran my project studio I had 6x of ATH M50X, HD280, and 7506 for musician cue mix. M50X were the most popular, HD280 next and 7506 only occasionally picked.

      After losing a loved one, hope their administration is in order. In short: you will start to hate how systems reduce people to accounts...

        Before that happens - while the person still has all their marbles - get powers of attorney or whatever your local equivalent is. If activated by a medical opinion that the person becomes unable to make decisions for/look after themselves, you (or whoever is attorney) can make decisions and start to tidy up their affairs so that when it comes to estate time, the process will be smoother & quicker.

        Sorry to hear about the funeral man. Hope you enjoy the Burial release. I was pretty disappointed by it, as I had hoped it might not be entirely ambient. Still enjoyed it somewhat.

        Very sorry t hear that. Stay well indeed, and allow time to sooth the grief.

        I think this is the closest, so far, that it has come to me. Friends of on-line friends. But still too many, second wave onwards.

        Add my voice to the list of those sorry to hear of your loss. Stay well and tend to your emotional needs. Several of my in-laws have tested positive and I am hoping to avoid your level of loss.

      If you consider an electric vehicle, check the battery technology and the batteries protection. I ditched my Niu for reliable petrol power.

        While there's something about the magical all-in-one that tweaks a certain part of my brain that likes toys... I would rather have a half dozen high quality dedicated tools rather than a box full of multitools that all sorta half-overlap and only do a mediocre job at any of it.

      Big Brainwavz memory foam ear-pads on the HD600. Worth it: more comfort, better headbang performance. Yes, you can head-bang with the HD600.

        I took out the old foam. Brainwavz ear-pads inserted on adapters. Ears have more space, a bit of AKG-ish open sound magic combined with Sennheiser warmth. This is really good.

        @JustAnotherRando Lastpass family has been a great investment. Without much effort, we end up with form auto-filling of name+address+etc, secure logins for every site, two factor authentication with physical keys, password sharing in family and only one password to remember per person.
