    Gassan - worth a shufty?

    A friend of mine was up there a few weeks ago and they thought it was a worth the trip. Bit of a novelty and said they wouldn't do it again but a good experience. You are doing very well Metabo Oyaji!
  2. Like last time prices will probably go up more than the actual increase in consumption tax. I am recently also noticing more things like only 900ml of juice in what was once a 1000m carton - same carton size, same price, 10% less juice. Annoying!
  3. No firm plans yet, lucky that I don't need to do flights. Mad busy the last few months. Will definitely get to Hakuba but hoping to try Zao this season.
  4. Thanks guys and good luck. I have been really busy lately and not been online as much generally. Will of course still be using the website though.

    Cho-yummy things

    Oh yes oh yes, they are just fantastic.
  6. The classic Songs From the Big Chair by Tears For Fears - and 8 song album - is being released as a 6 disc box set. Great album, but 6 discs!! (Admiteddly one is Blu-Ray audio and another is a video DVD).

    Make Me Laugh...Please..!

    Kawaii! So glad he is better.
  8. Here's one - Kraftwerk. Never took any notice even though lots of the music I liked referenced them. I remember hearing The Mix on a brilliant system though and it sounded amazing.
  9. What's wrong with that? I love hearing music in fantastic quality - the music I love sounds much better (to me) on my system at home than on poor quality pc speakers. I can hear all the clear details, everything that's going on........ So does music I don't like - still don't like it, but can appreicate the sonic quality. I'm trying to think if there's much music I became to like after hearing it properly. I bet there is. Need to check!

    4G or LTE

    I really don't need any faster now. Just concentrate on making it cheaper please!
  11. It would be but I don't think that's what they are really saying here.
  12. Good points, Mr Wiggles. But still. Loudness is part of the problem yes and robs people who even have the decent equipment from hearing what they should be.
  13. I thought it was going to be longer than 22 minutes! But quite interesting all the same http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDZcz-V29_M I want my hi-fi! I really do think many (most?) people simply don't know what they are missing listening to rubbish file formats all the time. That is sad.
  14. Still liking the new Coldplay one, which surprises me!
  15. there's a film out soon calld distortion of sound, about how compressed mp3sand the loudness wars have really spoilt lots of music recently. Looking forward to seeing that.
