At least you like iPods.




I was pimping my 'pod to a buddy at work today. He has a pretty cool iRiver 20GB video gizmo. He wants an iPod 5G now too. I should refer him to Bren first, so Bren can tell him all the things he liked about it really don't exist... (now come ON Bren, you gotta smile at that!).

Smile? Does baring my teeth count as a smile? What if thecorners of my mouth turn up?

I find your posts consistently entertaining and informative (...) simply because you seem to thrive on being...well...Bren.




In reply to:

Glad to have you posting again, Bren. It's not the same without you.




Alright, enough of the love-in, everyone loves Bren. And for no good reason, he's far overhyped by his PR people. The truth is, he's just not worth the money. His audio theory is solid, but he's got very little time in listening to a wide range of current models of receivers and speakers. For bang for the buck and concise, non-rambling posts, you should really pay more attention to the likes of Alan Lofft and JohnK.

It's all about the info-tainment, Bren.

But the humour is so dry....
If one is looking for a colourful diatribe, clearly they have to look to the goateed man in black from the west.

At some point, we should really get together. The new place is amazing. You would love this new HT room. The wine cellar should be finished by Friday.

So invite me over... there's a standing invitation here, long as I'm home, the door's open.

If you want it to be a guys' night, Lisa's in Hawaii from Boxing Day til Jan 7, or after that if you want to meet her too.

You're giving me the Boss smile, aren't you? The "sure Boss, there's nothing I would rather do than come in to work on Christmas day and fix your son's computer" smile.

Nah... I can appreciate the "boss smile"... I support insubordination, I hate being called the "B" word... usually makes me bring out a "what, you work, I work... bosses delegate, you and I work... I'm not your 'boss'"

I also love when one of the guys uses the word "sir"... dripping with so much sarcasm, you KNOW they're spelling it with a "C" (cur!)

Your friend Darren was one of the first people in the nation to own an iPod, proudly walking around with one as early as 2001. Of course when people found out he'd paid $300 for what appeared to be an effete paperweight they chalked him up as an iDiot, and the gewgaw's rounded corners had them wondering if perhaps Darren had been one of those a second-graders required to use the blunt scissors. WELL WHO'S LAUGHING NOW, NAY-SAYER? Hint: not Darren. Now that everyone and their Manx owns an iPod, Darren has been desperately trying to stay cutting-edge by buying smaller iPods and video iPods and iPods with more gigabytes than Steve Jobs has had laughs over hipster America's willingness to snap up anything emblazoned with the Apple logo. Fortunately, you can make Darren stand out from the crowd yet again with the gift of an iPod cowboy costume. With "fringed-suede chaps, checkerboard kerchief, full-length lasso, and brown suede hat," this item from iAttire edges out Brokeback Mountain for the title of Gayest Cowboy-Themed Holiday Release.
