Radical Two Separate New Year Wishes Threads Proposal.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We already have two separate New Year threads. None of them is perfect though. Even the two taken together aren't perfect.. It's not only the question of using exclusively capital letters in the title of one of them and using such letters in a random way in the other one.. I think it's high time we hadgmg-yepp-abc-digit-2-8715362005809-0-l.jpgreally separate threads :

 

one for subjectivsts

and

one for objectivists

:D

to avoid conflicts which otherwise are, we all know it, unavoidable 9_9.

(Does someone have a proposal for more New Year threads.? I don't think anyone should be excluded..)


The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.

My thread is perfect.  (infra)

 

Yours, Sphinxis, is not. (supra)

We need volume levelled, acoustic treated room, double blind controlled tests to deduce which New Year thread is better!

An objectivist greeting  would just be “New Year”* as happiness is obviously a radical subjectivist illusion foisted upon us by a complicit audiophile press.

 

*come to think of it, is there data even to prove it’s new, or indeed a year?

not until January 25


"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

Happiness might also be quite difficult to measure, happiness caused by a cable upgrade might even be a very controversial topic..x-D 

It seems it should be reserved for subjectivists (happiness in general, more so the one connected with cables :D)

 My greeting was directed to ALL members, and was posted right at 12 Midnight in Eastern Australia ,where some of you may have been watching the direct broadcast of the Sydney Fireworks display ?

Things got complicated. Once we had before and after Christ now the 'after Christ' era will have to be divided into before and after Bob Stuart.. x-D

It's no longer the Mother country for most Australians these days , although my father migrated here from Leith in Scotland when quite young.:D  I wonder how many Aussies would feel allegiance to Queen Consort Camilla ?

We are celebrating the new year with a considerable amount of a very fine Aussie Shiraz,  So it’s all good,
