Started to Really Listen . . . A Revelation

Filed under: Question of the Month — Amie C @ 12:30 pm

Brent and I enjoy some of the same books, and one that both of us got a real kick out of was “Not Quite What I Was Planning”, a collection of six-word memoirs that encapsulate peoples lives – some of them funny, some of them bittersweet, some of them profound.  For example, a few contributions:

“Dad died, mom crazy, me too.” –Moby

“Couldn’t cope so I wrote songs” – Aimee Mann

“Macular degeneration. Didn’t see that coming.” –Ian Gould

“Brought it to a boil, often.” — Mario Batali

. . . you get the drift.  So Brent and I were musing about what our audio six-word memoir would be.  What six words characterize your experience with music?  Can you do it in just six words?  It’s surprisingly challenging!  Message board member Seabear’s sig file, for example, wouldn’t qualify:

“Axioms; For when you’ve just Gotta have More Cowbell!”


“It’s Axiomatic: I need more cowbell” would definitely qualify!

Brent took the first try at it – his six words . . .

“No words to describe my sound!”

What are your six words? Post them here! The best phrase will win a $50 Axiom Gift Certificate. $25 for the first runner up!

PS – Mine after marrying a loudspeaker man? Well, bonus points if you noticed the length of the title of this post . . .

President’s wife 🙂 Defacto, that makes her an audio guinea pig, whose only request to the lab is to always run sample products in colors that blend in with the rest of her home!

She considers herself the Audiobyte’s Number 1 fan.
