System edited: Just bought myself a lil xmas present. Panasonic DVD recorder with a 100gb hard drive. With the schedule i have most decent TV programming is over after i get off work, so now i can set this bad boy up and be able to record the shows, edit out the commercials, and burn them to DVD :)
Hey Slappy, HOWDY! I too was wondering if you fell off the flat edge of the earth? Chris, there isn't anything on the bottom of any bottle that is going to improve your way of life. Where are you meeting all these 285 loose'R women at? I told you once you got the Stang to stay away from those High School parking lots. Serioulsy nice to see your alive, and on your way back to wellness. Now stop letting Gunbei fix you up on all those blind dates!
Slappy, your a good guy, don't let the crap get you down. Love the new look of your system and the Mustang looks as good as ever.
Wish you lived near us, my 19 year old sun and you would probably get along great. His Mustang Mach 1 is pretty hot and now that he's accustomed to it, I don't get to drive it any more (his first manual transmission).
Slappy, sorry to hear about your struggles! I guess we've all there, but that doesn't make it any easier on you! Check out the 'about Lugnut' thread, it might offer some well needed hope and encouragement.
You're not gonna move anywhere near me in 2007, are you???
about 3 months ago i knocked a hole in my wall and recessed the stereo equipment. Got the amp on the ground with the subs. plasma is now hung, center speaker is hung. all in all a very cool sleek look, plus now that i got all the crap out from between the speakers my imaging is back. :)
So. i dont think ive been on here in months. Still doing the same thing, been working on the car quite a bit, that is a new hobby that dominates a lot of my time. Im not exactly sure how or when but i just kinda fell out of the whole audio thing. certainly easier on the wallet. I think im actually just quite pleased with my modest system.
Last night i had a nice long listening session, it was great. I cant remember how long it has been since i have done that. This was after i took my girlfriend home after i found out she was nailing some other guy. All in all im ok with that, only been seeing her a month or so and really diddnt have a whole lot of emotional attachment. She caused me quite a few problems though, so good riddance.
So audiobugged, i think im up to 285 now.
I kind of hit quite an achoholic spell for a while. I guess i kinda lost my desire for anything. Not really a depressed mode, just lost my direction for a while. My liver absolutly despises me right now. Just living to get drunk and forget. I think it was a midlife crisis, ill be 29 soon (yeah not that old) but i've just been relativly unsatisfied with almost all aspects of my life. This past several weeks ive really started to pull out of the slump. Ive made some friends, lost some friends, and really hadnt done anything for myself. At some point i kind of woke up. Realized where i was isnt where i want to be, and now im working on a plan to free myself from that which holds me back (mortgage, bills, stuff like that). I hope by 2007 ill be able to pack up and move elsewhere and start over. It gives me a pretty good goal though, get out of debt, pay off bills instead of bar tabs, all that junk.
anyways, im kind of rambling on. im doing pretty good for the first time in quite a while. at least seeing some sunlight.
Audiobugged, 281 seems about right by now. This is getting a little out of hand. In 10 years i'll probably have 20-30 teenagers come to me claiming to be my kids. Ill try to get some pics of the panny put up in the next week or so.
Albert, That is a damn fine car. The mach 1's are awesome. If they had any available when i got mine i woulda definatly gone with the DOHC. Nice car, make sure he appreciates her and keeps her clean and running smooth!
These cars sure are addictive, ive been working on putting on 8 inch wide rally stripes with pin striping that will be about 3/4in to the sides of the rally stripes. Took about an hour to pull off the stock stripes, these new ones when done will go from the bottom of the front bumper all the way to the bottom of the rear. So far i have the hood, trunk, and down the rear done. Still need to do the front bumper and hood of the car, couldnt be happier with how they are turning out. The whole kit costs 34 bucks from Rallystripes.com and is extremly easy to do if you follow the instructions on the site. So if your son wants a cheap visual upgrade that will really stand his Mach 1 out from the rest, that is one way to do it. You should also tell him to check out www.mustangtuning.com, great online store, free shipping on any order over 50 bucks, and a great forum section with some people who might be able to answer any mustang-specific question he could have.
Galeriehughie, That sure is a generous offer! I might have to take you up on that! Just let me know.
I definitely could part with it, but i see you just bought one. I just edited my system as well, and with the 5.1 sytem without a choice for ghost center i am forced to use it until I find suitable replacement. When Im done i'll let you have it. Just pay shipping... You can see it under my tv in my system. I paid a couple hundred for it on special years ago, and it never really fit my KEFs or my Gallos.
Take care, love the mustang, but I'm a Boxster driver myself. Ill trade the horses for the curves.... :)
Slapster, I Just co signed a note for my teen age son for a 2003 Mustang Mach 1 with 5 speed, cold air intake, Mach sound system and equipped with Lo jack. This is the 32 valve, double overhead cam aluminum engine version. Supposedly the "off record for insurance sake" 330 HP. It's metallic gray with gray interior.
This was the hobby car for a 50 year old guy with three kids. He took amazing care of it, had only has 8300 miles when we picked it up this afternoon.
Yah, Since the woman left i decided to stop waxing my back. Saw her last night on a date with another guy. Grrrr. just as im starting to get over her i get that kick in the stomache
Yah the TV is working out pretty good, i have it wallmounted now, i for a SANUS walmount from overstock.com for 100 bucks, and tomorrow i FINALLY get to pick up my HD box from comcast, they said i couldnt have one untill they get a large shipment cause i already have an HD box on my account. That box, is located in the basement in my roomates room. I really dont have access to it. So tomorrow ill be in good shape.
Galeriehughie, ive been wanting a center channel, problem is with the old TV which you see in the pic, i have no room for one. Now with the panny plasma i can sit it where the old TV was. I dont suppose you are looking to seperate with that JM Lab center?
That's actually a Slapsquatch with a camera, with a reflection like that no wonder all his women split. Hence his need for a faster ride to catch those fleeing chicks. Hey Slappy till you get your next girlfriend, you'll be able to enjoy watching the movie "Runaway Bride" in widescreen on the Panny. ;0)~
Way to go Slappy, glad to see your not dumping every penny into the Stang. I picked up a 42" hdtv Panny last year. It was like splitting hairs between the Panny & Pioneer Elite's. The Panny's are that good! You must be loving watching "Motor Week" now?
Yah, i totally dig the Panny. its a new model, 7th gen plasma screen. They stripped some pricy features off like PIP and cable card, but i dont ever use PIP and the cable card doesent allow you to access ON-DEMAND. However, the built in tuner is good for pickin HD off the air. It is EDTV not HD though, but i sat there for a long while watching HD on this set and the HD model next to it, but at my viewing distance the difference between the two is almost non existant. couldnt justify the extra 600 for the HD.
Yah damn woman left. I dont get it. Everything going great, about 6 months, then all of the sudden she isnt ready for a relationship.
Whatever. The TV is hotter.
Go through a lot of women? you should see me when i'm single and really get into the game. I dunno, maybe it is time to go for an older woman. Im 28, she was 24. maybe i oughtta look for 30ish.
Slappy, if you haven't already discovered it for the Mustang, check out www.Zainobros.com for their show car polishing products. Outstanding products that deliver, and Sal Zaino will give you tips on the phone (i.e. removing hardwater stains, etc.). Great guy, great company, great products.
Oh, and nice developments in the system, too. I like that you're using stereo subs, and have placed them next to their corresponding monitors.
