Food: What does the typical audiophile eat?


Here's an interesting question. What does the typical audiophile eat? Does the type of food reflect on the type of audiophile?
Taking bagels for example, I may like an occasional onion or cinnamon but always go back to the plain old plain bagel for long term eating. But a plain Ray's Bagel from NYC sure is better than the Lender's variety. Hard to go back after that.

Ray's Bagel from NYC? What's that?

Kal (in Manhattan)
I've been known to eat crow from time to time.
I'm working on a hypothesis based on the fact that bats exhibit no high freq. hearing loss as they age. I'm thinking there may be some benefit from a guano based tea, or perhaps salad dressing.
I am a Vampire that lives on the Mapletree by the Granite tombstone. I enjoy the Red Wine with Apple and Blueberry.
Uhr, I have been force fed crow on occasion by fellow Audiogoners. . . but can't claim to be especially partial to the corvine diet. . . must be an allergic reaction to raw black quills. . . . . I do so love fava beans in any form and all sort of other highly [uhr] 'reactive' legumes, and their tofoish derivatives, particularly if spicy hot!
Bacon and lots of it. Heavy smoked bacon hand rubbed with pure cane sugar...
...the 4 basic food groups; sugar, salt, fat and preservatives.
Looks like somebody ran out of things to tweak.

I would assume they eat what other people eat.
No offense but this is the most absurd question I've come across. Then you kick the thread off with the most boring food, bagels. You're telling us you eat raisin bagels sometimes but always go back to plain bagels for long term enjoyment. Sweet Jesus, I haven't laughed this hard in a couple of days.

BTW, I'm eating a slice of lemon pound cake right now with some grape-cranberry juice. I had cornflakes for breakfast, pasta with marinara sauce for lunch and a Boca Burger with curry rice and veggies for dinner.
i have a hypothesis that those who prefer panel speakers to cone speakers are either more likely to be vegeterians, libertarians or conservatives, while those who prefer cone designs are more likely to be meat eaters or liberals or somewhat to the left of center.

hmm, where do the hybrid-speaker owners fit in ?
"I'm eating a slice of lemon pound cake right now with some grape-cranberry juice. I had cornflakes for breakfast, pasta with marinara sauce for lunch and a Boca Burger with curry rice and veggies for dinner."

No meat. You must have panel speakers then according to Mr. Tennis!
I eat whatever a woman puts in front of me usually, wink wink.
Pepperidge Farm Cookies - Mint, Orange, Rasberry Milanos, and my favorite, Tahiti cookies. I go through a bag a day/night. crumbs are a problem however.
As a slightly-left-of-center meat-eater, with (at the moment) 4 pairs of cone(head) speakers in my house, I seem to fall squarely into the Mr. Tennis theorem, or postulate, of speaker-type prediction regarding diet and politics.

Now, I'm curious, Mr. Tennis--how long have you been working on this theory?
Why do you think that audiophiles are different than everybody else ?

Taking bagels for example, I may like an occasional onion or cinnamon but always go back to the plain old plain bagel for long term eating

Its called variety.
As a companion query -- What size is the typical audiophiles waist?
You have nothing to do, huh?
Eat? I spent 6 figures on equipment. I eat cat food!
Only orgasmically grown veggies.

>>> Nope, cone speakers at the moment. I've owned panels in the past though and hybrids too.<<<

No meat?

>>>I worked in a slaughter house for one day, Hell no I don't eat meat (well not red meat, maybe every now and again a burger.) If I have other options I feel no desire to eat meat at all.
Currents, tubers, anjou pears, beets chopped into Bits and fried in Snake Oil.
I don't have any money for food...I just re-cabled my system !

Kal, the package says "made from scratch in NYC". Then they import them to New England. Guess you guys are missing out ;-)

Launche, I liked your post.
"Sweet Jesus, I haven't laughed this hard in a couple of days."
Back at you. I guess I see some irony in your comment about absurd questions and audio.
And bagels are boring? Well, you will have to try Rays bagels, imported from NYC.
I have been told what I should eat on a few occiations, that is for sure...
i smile everytime i see the front license plate down here in the south that says "eat more possum"
I ate so many salads last year that I can barely stand to eat one anymore. In the past month or so I have been craving junk food and have dined on Burger King, KFC and chinese food. I think it has something to do with the state of the economy as I have been seeking comfort food for emotional gratification. I do agree with the original post that there is something special about a fresh out of the oven plain bagel. I specifically ask the waitress not to toast mine as this ruins the chewy texture of the bagel. A little butter on top and I am in heaven. Gotta go, the fresh donut light just went off at Krispy Creme.
i am an amateur psychologicst. i have been thinking about how behvior in one area affects or is affected by behavior in another area. personality is the key factor.

being in the mejority with respect to food choices may be associated with equipment choices. it's a stretch, perhaps.
throw in politics too. its all about our needs and how they are manifested in our behavior.
Fresh road-kill, in order to save money to purchase more lp's. If the critters are lucky, and I'm hungry, I'll raid the neighbors fruit trees, and put it on my cereal. Another great find is to get to the grocery store before they open, but after the deliveries have been made. Usually a big rack of doughnuts there.

I don't think the Classical/Chamber/Choral/Opera member's know what you mean.
First you have to find a typical audiophile. Then you can ask him what he eats.
spicy stuff

Kal
Kal's right. They cease to be bagels after about 6 hours. After that they are just dough.
What would I do for an Indian curry?

If you are an audiophile and you are reading this then you love Spam, lovely Spam, wonderful Spam!
Slow news day ehhh? BTW I eat therefore I am and I am a puzzle wrapped in an enigma hidden within a riddle so from Lobster to Lil' Debbies I eat it all! And ofcourse I enjoy meat........you gotta kill it before you grill it, hell' even carrots scream when ripped from the ground.
I haven't had a N.Y. Knish in over 30 years and I want one.
Stir fried Chinese hollow vegetables and eggplants in Tobasco sauce on a bed of millet. . . Totally unbeatable!
Guido- A common typo, what with the r being right next to the t. I'm sure you meant unbearable.

What are hollow vegetables?
Chinese hollow vegetable are called Ong Choy in Cantonese. They grow in shallow ponds, hence the hollow stocks. They taste vaguely similar to spinach. . . except for the hollow and crunchy stems. Delicious stir fried and in sanwiches. . . very much unbeatable! . . . no 'r' intended (grins!)
It was a j-o-k-e
Apologies CDC, I take my Ong Choy very seriously, I personally trim the stocks and tune them to resonate way outside audible range, which is very important when consuming uhr. . . certain foods.
Hi, Guido, thanks for the apology, I was referring to Kal.
I am surprised nobody mentioned froie grois or baya fish taco! Ceviche. Ricotta cheese cake. Sushi.
We have such good taste when it comes to music and equipment let's explore the gastronomical world as well.
When in nyc I recommend Pascalou's, they make awesome malaysian shrimp. Souffle, eggs benedict.
Those who can't appreciate food will probably ridicule this thread, but for those are open-minded, there is so much to look forward to, go and explore you won't regret it, even belgian beer will reawaken the palate.
We live in the best place, don't miss out.
