I would be weary of any quote so garbled you can’t tell if its referencing a Nicholson character, or Brent Spiner.
Actually this is one of the hardest things for me to understand. Maybe because I was raised with little and learned to make do and be careful with my money from childhood. Maybe that is what made it so hard for me to understand and accept that there are people who seem oblivious to and show little regard for wealth and treasure.
And I use wealth and treasure very deliberately because I don't mean just money and things but the time and effort and energy and resources that they represent.
I mean as a little kid I wanted to see a movie so bad but my parents wouldn't take me but I was determined enough that eventually I figured out mom had enough pop bottles that if I could load them in my wagon and get the deposit I could go see the movie, which would have been impossible except it was playing three blocks down the street. The movie was the Beatles Help which came out in 1965. I was born in 1957. So at 8 years old I was planning out the logistics of how to earn the 35 cents it cost for the movie and popcorn, including walking there and back, not getting caught.... which I didn't!
All that planning. Thirty five cents.
Flash forward 50 years and I'm on a forum where a guy is talking about buying a brand new $135k Porsche on impulse. Never even heard the word before that day, buying the car. Which then sits, probably gets polished more than driven, and then sold few months later.
What was the question? Oh yeah, should I be wary of that car?
No. The kind of mentality that would do such a thing. That's what I think you should be wary of.
Now here is the recipe for success!
I'm more convinced that you can eke out better performance from whatever gear
Print it. Cut it out. Tape a copy to your monitor, magnetize it to the fridge, carry one in your wallet, make it your email signature.
Then again what was I thinking, this is audiogon.... nevermind.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled shilling.....
