    The single most disappointing bit of kit you ever owned thread (with rules).

    Sounds about right vis-a-vis Tandberg. :(

    "No charge for lousy sunsets"

    dunno -- you'll have to show me one, cause that one ain't it. :)

    The single most disappointing bit of kit you ever owned thread (with rules).

    Easy peasy: McIntosh MC-2100 stereo solid state autoformer-coupled power amplifier. Harsh, gritty, grainy thin and shrill sounding. Other than that, though, of course -- not bad. Good thing about it? Well, that's easy: it is worth* oh so much more money than it is worth -- and I, quite...

    The single most disappointing bit of kit you ever owned thread (with rules).

    Not to violate the rules -- but those are gorgeous.

    What Day Is It?

    speaking of weeks and calendars -- and, implicitly, of modular arithmetic; albeit not of Fibonacci*. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2021/11/22/how-the-week-organizes-and-tyrannizes-our-lives-david-m-henken-book ...or, of course, as they say in The Windy City :) _________________ *...

    Everything but the Hudson River ;)

    What hours do you work? What is this work of which you speak? I am broken (i.e., I do not work) :confused: 🤭 @Deli we would love to have you come up here sometime when it's mutually convenient (albeit it's a haul from your neck o the woods). One thing I realized, grimly, after we were in...

    Everything but the Hudson River ;)

    the last one's a real "Hudson River School" painting -- according to Google, at any rate. :)

    Everything but the Hudson River ;)

    Oh, so cool! Where-ish in the state? (regionally is fine, no need to divulge GPS coordinates or anything :) )

    Adele 30

    I... I like Total Eclipse... too. Kinda operatic ;) but it does have contrast (dynamics) goin' on, so there's that. Re: Adele and the Vinyl Supply Chain... https://www.npr.org/2021/11/19/1057397815/you-might-go-easy-on-adele-the-fragile-vinyl-record-supply-chain-isnt-her-fault Maybe the...

    Adele 30

    Actually... I was actually thinking of Bonnie Tyler (and that very song), but memory's flammable fallible at this late date... and Kim Carnes was close e-effing-nuff. :smoke EDIT: without disclosing too much about myself on the internet -- I... umm... really do like Steinman & Mr. Loaf's magnum...

    Retro Electric Car!

    oh, yeah. Since Sig. Giugiaro had already come up in this thead, I thought I'd make a pitch for just a couple of my faves. :) Of course, he also did this Hyundai :rolleyes: I mean, it's OK, but kind of... unassuming.

    Adele 30

    So, you know... Kim Carnes, Meatloaf & Adele could form a trio. Might even outsell Emmylou, Linda, and Dolly.

    Adele 30

    In all seriousness -- even after all these years... I am not quite sure what I think of Adele. I did hear her say (on an NPR interview, IIRC) that her current intent is not to keep naming her albums based on her age -- although she reserved the right to change her mind. I will say that it's...

    Adele 30

    Are you implying that it's a good thing that Adele and the late Jim Steinman never had a chance to team up? :confused: :rolleyes:

    ^^^ In all seriousness, I have trying and trying to remember the lookalike original! Thanks for posting that, it's been driving me nuts!

    Retro Electric Car!

    I remember seein' these when we lived in the Silicon Valley... the unusual font used for the model name always looked to me like it said "GRUNT", so I always called them Mitsubishi Grunts. EDIT: Dude! Where's my checkbook?! TAKE MY MONEY!!! :confused: :o

    Retro Electric Car!

    naah, the new one's too square. ;) Giugiaro's design, as usual, has some swoop goin' on. PS the interior has to look like this... :confused: :cool:
