What a day. Some of my students threw a surprise retirement party after school for me. 100+ kids showed up, some graduates. I was shocked. May 24, 2019 at 7:19 PM

        They must really appreciate all the care, help, attention and support you gave them - awesome!!
        Many congratulations on your retirement.

        Good teachers are rarely forgotten...I'd say you were one of the good ones, and that's no small feat IMO.
        Enjoy your retirement!

        Wish I could like many more times. That's very touching, well done on a long valuable and impactful career. I remember my own teachers fondly.

        To this day there are teachers I've had from primary and high school that I still think about, though some I can't talk to anymore. One guy in particular flipped his shit because the class wasn't paying attention then he yelled about how much he spent on teaching materials that he personally didn't need— that shut us up and it's stuck with me since.

        Another one, my Filipino teacher in primary, knew I was horrible with the language (ha-ha yes) and gave me pointed hints at what to review for finals. Maybe that was cheating, but I did well in the class and didn't lose honours. Perhaps my moral code is compromised, but I maintain that was more kindness than laziness on her part.

        School isn't a "natural" environment, and kids definitely feel that. Fuck, I still do. It's good teachers that make learning truly fun and make a difference in people's lives, not just teaching curriculum but also teaching how to be human (IMO, IME, AFAIK, etc). I'm stopping before I get teary eyed :))

      For those who have heard the EC Aficiondo and EC Black Widow v1, I’m I crazy to think they have a very similar sound with HD 600. Marv?

        Aficionado was a step up from BW2 with HD600 in my opinion. Sold my BW2 shortly after acquiring the AF. A cleaner more spacious sound is the best I can do to sum it up.

        @JK47 I would agree. It is a step up. More spacious for sure. I finally realized the very similar signatures. Heard both BW1 and early version of Af. Was curious of opinions.

        There will be a new film coming out. It will use over 55 hours of film that mostly hasn’t been seen. Peter Jackson, yeah the LOTR director will be the man in charge.

      Anyone else have impressions on the White Album re-mix? Thinking of going for it, but the DR concerns me, due to the Peppers re-mix.

        I like some of the things they've done with the mix and it feels a bit more visceral but the lack of DR is apparent. I have enjoyed two listens through the album. Merrick noted that the Blu-ray mix has better DR.

        Thanks. I assume @Merrick ‘s opinion was based on the Blu-ray. I wish they would offer the Blu-ray as a stand alone option. Guess there is no end to making money from my favorite band. @Wilson agree with the YS remaster. I listened to the 2009 version of White. I’ll wait for more opinions.

        The lady had a hell of a set of pipes on her. Already scheduled a re-watch of The Blues Brothers for the weekend. In a film packed with star turns, she gave a masterclass on star quality, impossible not to grin when she explodes into song.
