"How... Say... These People Dont Want to Hear


what I have to say! I want Alan. Alan, name a topic."

"Name a topic?"

"Any topic.."

"Let's talk about me for a minute..."

Please don't post while drinking.
Did I miss the movie, or what the f--- are you talking about?
Say what?
Tee Hee Hee...

Once in a while I just need to have some fun. Mind you, I do not drink to excess; I have never seen wisdom in it. So, the post was not the result of inebriation or other altered state.

The quote is lifted from a song. The challenge is to find which song and determine if your audio system is up to the challenge of rendering the discussion cleanly!

Trust me, it would take an exceptionally clean/resolving rig to do that. :)

I enjoy finding and sharing little tests for audio systems. Have fun with it! Big bonus, 1,000 Audio Guru points to the one who figures it out and whose system cleanly renders it. :)
"Let's Talk About Me" -- The Alan Parsons Project (1985).

Can't play it, though, because I don't have it.

Confession: I found the answer via Google, in about 20 seconds :-)

Best regards,

Actually I used to play a game with a friend at work and later my brother via e-mail. We would write two lines from a song and the other had to guess it. I hadn't thought of that for years.
So continue; your line "tee hee hhe" is from a David and David song "Heros"
Trippin'?
Yeah, Google ruins all the good "stumper" questions. I knew that would be found relatively quickly once I indicated the conversation was "lyrics."

Theo, ha, good one. "Tee hee hee" wasn't another clue, but I enjoyed your comments. :)

Now that we know the source, who's system can render the conversation? This is not so much a contest as another of my samples of "mini tests" to assess one's rig, to see where it is at. I don't need to know if your rig plays it cleanly, I thought I would share another of my snippets of material which help me assess a rig's performance. :)

Frankly, I was laughing hard when I heard the conversation from the song, as it shows a sense of humor on the part of Parsons.

Finally, hey, Almarg, shoot me an email - we got "things" to talk about! I've been waiting for months to tell you that. Now I can talk to you about "stuff." It will be worth your time. You should be able to get my email from my recent conversations on Audioasylum.com, where I've been in the Speaker and Planar Speaker asylums lately.

Have fun Almarg! Maybe a shot or a *few* may help first!
I had a correct hunch reading the OP but got here too late to beat Al.

The song is on my APP Hits Vol 2 CD along with a lot of other good and great sounding tunes...
That's why I quit playing with my brother. He was googling the answers. Some just consider winning, a victory regardless of how they score. But it was fun.
Perhaps there should be a site called Nerdiogon?
Bojack, perspective plays into it. I saw FAQs online where people have spent countless hours deconstructing Parsons' work. Now, I'd say THAT is nerdy. I simply was turning a tidbit of the music I was listening to into an informal audio test.

True, some people don't wish to conduct any testing, they just want to listen. That's certainly their prerogative, and they may be "audiophiles" in their own minds. I would call them more of a music lover if they could care little about the performance of the system.

To that end I would suggest that anyone hanging around here, including yourself, is nerdy to some degree.

Hifitime, yes, looking back at the post I wrote it does look weird putting the words "things" and "stuff" in quotes. It can be misconstrued, which was not my intent. I shared with Al my top secret for a system, one which I'm writing up now. I didn't want to say publically what the system configuration is, thus the bland generalizations. He is knowledgeable enough and a gentleman enough that I thought he would enjoy a sneak preview of the system. He has promised confidentiality until the reivew is published, and I believe he will honor it. :)
I am NOT nerdy....

Doug was kind enough to describe experimental findings that he correctly anticipated would be of particular interest to me.

There was no need to hoist a few (or even any), either beforehand or after :-)

Goes without saying. I look forward to seeing the review.

What a relief. Almarg is one of the few left around here that can answer some of the questions. We don't want to lose him.
Get a life !!
