The Tallest Man on Earth

Thoughts ...just be yourself
Our ears are fed with tons and tons of mediocre music by radio stations. I have distant from radio stations ages back, most radio stations are next to nothing. I can't recall the last time I bothered tuned in. Sadly though the amount of garbage albums are on the rise to cater equally dumb listeners. A good album has become ...

Thoughts ...just be yourself
Why I ditched iPod touch for good ?I bought my first digital media player, an Apple 80GB iPod classic not knowing it wasn’t supported by Rockbox in 2006. I was disappointed but went on to buy an iPod touch 64GB to have the bluetooth support to use with my bluetooth compatible devices. I bought them not because they’re good products ...

This was shot in 2011 using 65MP-EPonte Vecchio, Firenze Italy 2011I’ve been using Canon DSLRs for almost a decade, starting with an entry level Canon EOS 350 and on. Canons were improving and leading the way back then. I upgraded to a couple of Canon DSLR bodies before hooked up to a 7D in 2009. I then started playing the ...

fleet fox to I love you honeybear - FJM

Thoughts ...just be yourself
I purchased my fourth Subpop record making my records tally closer to one hundred. A record that carries an interesting title “I love you honeybear” by Father John Misty (Joshua Tillman). This is undoubtedly the best album I purchased since December 2014. This is a funny, melodic, cold yet harmonic album with cruel lyrics showcasing what Misty had become since ...

Throw away CDs and MP3s folks, vinyl revival is here!!!

Thoughts ...just be yourself
Why vinyl records again ? This is the digital age, one might wonder why do we need to go back in time. Why do we need to listen to vinyl records again ? The truth is vinyl records never died but it was just that were a bit distracted. There's a huge difference in terms of audio quality and accurate ...

Why Audio Video Receivers suck at music reproduction ?

Thoughts ...just be yourself
A bit of background Do Audio Video Receivers (AVR) deliver quality music for audio sources ? No, never. I guessed yes for a while but I soon discovered AVRs lack real presence of music although I listened to audio in Pure Direct mode. What Pure Direct mode does is, it disengages power and control to the tone controls (IOW it ...

How to freeze your denims

I've been struggling when it comes to buy jeans matching my waist and length. I was stumbled upon two brands who produce my correct waist and length, yet they produce a bit expensive raw jeans (Hugo and G-Star). The raw jeans are the ones who don't get washed after dying, during the production phase. Most modern jeans use indigo dye ...

Keith Green

Thoughts ...just be yourself
In this day, we are stormed with faith albums all around but sadly I question the purpose they serve. There's a huge vacuum for worship music, so the musicians and record companies exploited this by increasing the production of faith albums. Just like a toy factory produces toys to cater the consumer demand. What these so called musicians have failed ...

Yamaha RX-V2073

Thoughts ...just be yourself
Ever since I replaced my old Yamaha RX-V 663 with a Marantz SR 7002, I truly enjoyed quality sounds from the both worlds, music and movies. The Marantz SR 7002 was one of the best receivers we had in 2009. However, it didn't take much longer to make the Marantz SR 7002 an outdated metal chunk. I looked towards Yamaha ...

A few words on Klipsch F30 speakers

Thoughts ...just be yourself
I actually had a lengthy list of speaker options to pick these from; such as Krix, Jamo, PSB, B&W etc. But I chose Klipsch for that produced the sounds I loved. The built quality was great but the speaker legs are annoying and I didn't like it at all.These bass-reflex speakers provide great mids and highs through its solid tweeter. ...

Sennheiser PX 210 BT Bluetooth headphone review I managed to grab a pair of Sennheiser bluetooth headphones to make my listening habits "cordless". Initially, I was quite hesitant to buy a cordless headphone, knowing the poor sound quality they produce in general. However, the desire to liberate from cords broke the years long ignorance and finally I bought a pair ...

I'm in a public group once again

Thoughts ...just be yourself
The best ever social media/public group related decision I've ever taken in the recent past was to pull myself out of Sri Lankan Google Groups. :-D They were non-technical and full of shit with bunch of shitheads.I thought, I would never join a non-technical group but due to my heart's desire for nature, I joined a few groups in Brisbane ...

Bad customer service backed by a highly unprofessional staff at Telstra. Only good at testing your patience

Thoughts ...just be yourself
Initial Subscription RequestAs a Telstra customer I thought of obtaining a Foxtel connection from Telstra. Since it's very easy to have both items on the same bill. I did submit my application at the Telstra shop in the city (Brisbane), at Queen Street mall. I was told, Foxtel would contact me within a few working days. But nothing happened after ...

Death magnetic - Brisbane

When one of my friends mentioned Metallica is going to play in Brisbane. I wasn't quite interested in it at all. Their last couple of albums let down us big time. Trivium took over the place I've had for Metallica for years.

Picking the correct laptop processor, in a nutshell

Thoughts ...just be yourself
Picking the correct processor when buying a laptop or a desktop machine gets unnecessarily complicated due to marketing campaigns conducted by major CPU manufacturers, not many but Intel. We often try to buy one of the top range processors to be future proof or rather be on the edge, not knowing the requirements or actual usage. This often results being ...
