      Today's interesting find: preground coffee in tea bags. Why did I not know this was a thing? Time limit though.

        Metal can taste a bit edgy as it doesn't absorb the stuff that paper does. Cloth is rather high maintenance to keep it from smelling mildewy (see video above).

        The only metal solution that I have ever used repeatedly is the Swiss gold. It’s actually not bad at all if you use a good grinder. Makes a small cup.

      It never ceases to amaze me how easily hair, human or otherwise, gets into the drivers of the HD600/650. Lesson learned, air only this time.

        No need to disassemble, just pull pads and front foam off (but u must have coin mod, otherwise shit wouldn't get in there), and CAREFULLY use double-sided tape on the end of a cotton swab.

        Yup, just took the pads and foam off this time around. The part that perplexed me is how anything got into the driver and on the backside of the foam when I made sure it was clean last time I put the thing back together.

        Ah the mysteries of life.

      Another film, Psychokinesis (염력). Superhero story with some drama + hilarious bits. Actually cried at some points. Fun watch, great effects.

        Screw sleep. Ghost Stories (2020), Indian horror anthology. Getting late so watching this one piecemeal but first couple stories have good pacing and are genuinely unnerving. Tendency for some shots to linger uncomfortable stretches of time but it's used to good effect.

        Acting is pretty ace, and there's a profound sense of squick and tension when need be. Characters also teeter between hateable and sympathetic.

        I did start learning to sew in earnest when a pair of pajamas I got from my grandpa developed a massive hole in the knee. Sentimentality is a strong motivator lol.

      In my quest to get the ZDT Jr. repaired (yes, still at it!) I have come to strike up a convo with a cool local amp maker. I love this hobby.

        Had the same experience in my quest to get SW51+ repaired! The amp maker/repairman I met was really grumpy and didn't like to say anything more than 2 words per minute though ("Hmm?" "No." "Get out.") which was pretty entertaining and endearing in a way.

        IMO he gets some points docked for acknowledging Harman (semi-serious) but his testing is pretty comprehensive and if he measures a few more headphones it'll be easier to triangulate. Just irked because he changed his gear up partway through so some measurements won't be directly comparable.

        Whole album is a throwback to her earlier vibe but more ethereal/sentimental-sounding with some prolly deliberate "behind the curtains" sounds that add to the candid feel. Lo-fi pop sensibilities shine through in the production, it's very sueddu.

        Lyrics are hit and miss. Some have pretty imagery but a lot reads as being written for herself. Not bad though.

        Haha yes I certainly can, just glad I had an unexpected reserve of the stuff for when I randomly got really irritated by the squeaking.

        Given it's the runnier sort of grease I fully expect to have to redo it, so I plan to order "better" silgrease for when the need arises soon as I'm able.
