      TFW when you get roped in to writing copies for a girls' magazine. Mildly thankful I worked as a copywriter once upon a time.

      "It: Chapter 2" is more an adventure comedy with jumpscares than a horror film. Still enjoyable though.

        It wasn't a great film but I'd be lying if I said it didn't get some genuine laughs out of me. Specifically referring to the shower scene at the hotel.

        The gang grew up and grew old, I think it was a realistic portrayal considering what's been established.

        SBAF compensation pending minor tweaks. Bass is a bit muddier, but not enough to make me hate it. Still damn good quality. Bit of heavier rumble in subbass makes it fun. Doesn't actually sound this elevated though. Used a weak glue stick to adhere felt disc directly onto driver mesh, 6.5kHz elevation does stick out but is less painful than stock sizzle where everything >6kHz was hot.

        Missed the thread, and not sorry it's closed, but one reason that the A man probably hates SBAF is that we refused to engage with him. He could troll hydrogenaudio easily and horribly, but SBAF just said, "No thanks, go away."

        I doubt that he forgives easily.

      Proof mood matters just as gear: background listening, caught a new li'l blip in a very familiar song I'd not noticed in years of listening.

        3:25 into this one, minor throat catch/gasp. In hindsight it sticks out like a sore thumb. No change to gear sans a big Win10 update (lol): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFLMHPRoTcA

        Or it could just be I actually notice more minutiae when I'm not forcing myself to focus. Happens surprisingly often, especially with stuff I've been listening to for ages. My attention is weird.

      You know it's bad when your dentist asks whether you're willing to model a before/after. Splint and braces needed for a ridiculous overbite.

        Yep, it was just a hair too dry for me, but the somewhat holographic soundstage was something special compared to the rest of their amps.

        It's also currently ruled out for me because I'm tied to the balanced outputs on my Gungnir Multibit. But that could change with the new Bifrost...

        Hah, as expected of a good parent :)

        Honestly, with the exception of Miyazaki, Hosoda, Shinkai, and a few others who make "classics", every anime I like almost always has to have trope or fanservice-related caveats tacked on, it sucks. Notable example, I love Grimgar but hesitate to talk about it for the creepy sexualisation.

        I miss the days of Kino's Journey, Wolf's Rain, Ergo Proxy, Yugo the Negotiator, etc.
