I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

Don’t know what you’re expecting of me

I’m tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless lost under the surface

Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes

I\’ve become so numb I can\’t feel you there

And become so tired so much more aware
I’m becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

And I know I may end up failing too
But I know you were just like me
With someone disappointed in you

Grado Labs

This is one fucking great company!! Manufacturers of the best headphones in the world!! This is the letter I wrote a few years back explaining my situation:

I wisely cropped my personal information, wouldn’t want any-of-yous beating a path to my door, lol. Oh, and I did remember her name, still do … Kim (just was uncertain, wasn’t 100% sure at the time of writing, so thought I’d err on the side of caution). I told her my headphones looked like a lawnmower ran over them … more than once, lol!! And admittedly that most of the damage was caused by me trying to fix them, lol. They were chewed up so badly that if Grado didn’t offer to help me, I’d have had no choice but to buy a new pair. I still can’t believe they repaired them for me, AND at a nominal fee, AND that John Grado the owner of the company went to the Post Office personally and mailed the repaired headphones back to me. Which brings me to today … I called wanting to inquire about upgrading to the new SR 325is model (still priced same as the SR 325i) at $295, and hopefully circumventing paying taxes and duties … PLUS obtaining $100 credit!! Christ, I would have been all over that like white on rice!! To put it into perspective, here in Canada they sell for $400+tax=$452) … and with the Canadian Dollar trading at $1.02 for the American Greenback, thought it was an ideal time. Sadly all good things must come to an end … they eliminated the upgrade program, too many hassles I was told. I understood completely. Frankly, I couldn’t believe they ever offered it in the first place. Honestly, mine are now in perfect working condition having been restored to their former glory (almost) … oh and my SR 125’s have the superior ear-cup, no longer available on today’s model, having been substituted with cheaper materials … a cost cutting measure permitting Grado to keep any price hike in check, so all is not lost. Will patiently bide my time!!

Auto Show!!

This used to be the greatest day, at least one of them on my calendar year … going to the Auto Show. Now, it’s so crowded, takes some of the fun out of it … who’s kidding who … a shitload of fun. I remember previously swearing never to go on Family Day ever again. I lied. Now I really really swear, NEVER again!! Here’s some pics from today … I’m not an auto-blogger, so I’ll just post a few. My favourite vehicle (if there’s such a thing)? Once again I remain partial to the Mercedes E-Class … the top of the line, no holds barred E63 AMG specifically … what a sweet sedan!!

Notice the theme going on here? White cars!! Why? No reason really … just ’cause I felt like it motherfuckers, lol!!

============================================================

For the record: I ADMIRE and APPRECIATE all cars. Hyundai, Kia … Ferrari, Porsche!! I don’t discriminate, I don’t judge. It’s not me. I didn’t easily and conveniently pick the Lambhorghini as my fave pick … Goddamn, love that Grand Cherokee too, lol!! Sweet Jeep!!

one of these days I’m gonna change my evil ways

but I ain’t too young to worry
nah I ain’t too old to cry

and I ain’t too old to hurry
’cause I ain’t too old to die

but I sure am hard to beat

but I ain’t too young to realize
that I ain’t too old to try
try to get back to the start

ain’t too young to admit it
no I’m not too old to lie
I’m just another empty head

one of these days
