  1. The entire Beatles catalog has already been remaster by George Martin a couple of years ago. Mono versions and stereo versions. They sound, to this audio engineer's ears, even better than the originals. Further, I cannot WAIT to get my hands on the new LZ remasters. Finally, the whole "vinyl sounds better/no it doesn't" argument is equivalent to the whole "apples taste much better than oranges?no they don't argument". They sound different. Due to the RIAA equalization curve, vinyl can never sound like CD or hi-def audio. The low frequency causes the record cutting machines to skip. Therefore the ow end must be reduced to avoid product damage. Also, the fidelity changes the closer you get to the center of the album. This is why singles are located first on each side, as well. OK. Audio class over for today. Ask me about the difference between 96/24 from a session tracked at 44.1 or 44 respectively, vs 96/24 direct from tape. Or better yet, go here to see why the recoding bit depth is the most important factor where mastering is concerned:
  2. Go easy on the kid. He's used to MG.
  3. Past your bed time, pincess.
  4. I know it's the most recent, but the sample size in St Louis is too small. However bad some people are saying Miller is now, you think Lack is better? He doesn't have the chops yet, and to have a mentor like Miller around for 2-3 seasons would propel Lack's game to another level that would take much longer to achieve without an experienced number 1 to learn from.
  5. Youth is one thing. Comparing Lack and Markstrom to the goalies you listed is farcical. How many cups between the five guys you listed? Even they had tutelage. Miller could mentor Lack to greatness. Seriously. Quick, Howard, Niemi , Crawford and Rask? Could you have tried any harder to cherry pick a better handful of young goalies to illustrate your point? How about a list , now, of all of the worst NHL goal tenders under 26 to offset the list of elites you just trotted out? For christ sake.
  6. This. There is no reason we can't walk an chew gum at the same time. Play for today, plan for tomorrow. That's how a real GM takes care of business. All of the #1 picks in the world don't promise future success. Look at Edmonton. They've had what, three #1 in a row? 4? I've lost count. The only thing they got out of it is suck-cess. Win today, dominate tomorrow. Never tank for magic beans. Ever.
  7. You know zilch. Squat. Nothing. Not a god damned thing.
  8. but, but KESLARRRR!!!!!!!!!
  9. And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it.
  10. Some peple just want to be right regardless of how the outcome effs their team up.
  11. Careful. That logic/reason stuff can get you into trouble 'round these parts.
  12. For once I actually agree with you.
  13. TV ratings. A real hockey town has better TV ratings? I get it now.
  14. There are some who would say the team that plays the best and wins four games in the finals is the team that "deserved" it. And if hockey is an afterthought, as you say, isn't it good for the league and the game for that "cesspool" to win a couple of cups to elevate awareness of the game? Yeah, I think the real problem is that you are bitter and sour grapes that the Canucks couldn't get it done when they got to the dance and the Kings got it done each of the last two times they went. It would be sad if it weren't so funny.
  15. If losing is losing, what difference does it make how you "go out"? You seem to want to hate the Canucks and love the Rags. But the Canucks played better than the Rags, despite not having as much star power. Did they get abused? Yes. Would stooping to the Bs level give them more dignity somehow? According to you: yes.
