Audio Nuts

I had lunch with my old junior high/high school buddy JT today. We met at Twoheys on the Alhambra/San Marino border. It's been ages since I'd been there; I think the last time was when the kids were in high school, maybe even younger than that. We had a great time.

We got to talking about how both of us are audio buffs. JT told me what gear he has and it is some incredible stuff, the kind that makes audio nuts like me drool.

Then I asked him, "Does your wife appreciate all that great stuff you have?"

"Naw, she can't tell the difference. She doesn't pay any attention to it."

I laughed because that's exactly like Julie. "My wife might as well be listening to a transistor radio," I told him. "Women don't seem to care what it sounds like."

Well, I will probably incur the wrath of whatever females happen to read this blog but overall I'd say that is the case. Most women I talk to are not the kind of fanatics that so many men are when it comes to audio.

I told Julie and she said that us guys "just think there's a difference" and we get exploited by salespeople.

Anyway, lunch was good, we talked about old and new and I'm glad we were able to get together.

Today's YouTube has nothing to do with anything but it's short and funny. Katie sent me the link.
