    Dina saying “Whatever you need, I’m totally here” is going to be the startup sound on my PC.

    You guys should have it play every time you log into the site I am sure if you can get that and Dina dressed up in those leather pants the fan base of the show will sky rocket.

    Ohh and anyone in IA should post in my thread on Audioholics about people in IA, so far there has been no one!

    Btw, I am in Iowa, I am not John, and I was watching Fantastic Four – Rise of the Silver Surfer. There was like 15 mins left of the movie and I just stuck it out. I have children, so it’s not like I haven’t had worse before. *grin* In any case, there’s lots of corn around here, and we have some pretty sweet HOME theaters! Man, I love fresh corn. I love good movies. I love clean floors. And women in leather pants aren’t half bad either… But, you still have to have the blaster… Speaking of Blaster, you guys should set up a Halo2 game night where we can kill our favorite pod-cast hosts! After all, Dina says: “Whatever you need, I’m totally here”. And we’ll shoot you too, Tom. But just for fun! We aren’t Psychos in Iowa, after all…

    I remember back in 1994-ish, I bought Jurassic Park on laserdisc from Tower. Immediately upon getting home, I put it in the player and turned it up. I ended up watching the whole thing. The next day, I noticed a letter taped to my front door. It said that the neighbor two houses down had come over to ask that I turn it down. It went on to say that their walls were shaking and that repeated doorbell rings didn’t get any response…I didn’t hear them. Of course they threatened to call the cops and/or complain to the homeowners’ association if I continued to work the subs. I felt bad and didn’t play anything that loud again.

    By the way, at that time, I had a 50″ Pioneer TV, Pioneer LD player, two Hsu subs, JBL speakers, a JVC S-VHS VCR, and a Pioneer receiver.

    hey, don’t despair avranters. i had some neighbors (apartment neighbors who lived below our unit) who complained to management because i was VACUUMING (is that spelled right, it looks wrong, anyway on with the tale)… i was vacuuming in the afternoon (and i did not vacuum much at all).

    neighbors will complain about ANYTHING, so crank those movies (unless you live close to me, like for instance… TOM). if i hear tom’s movies one more time, i will personally come over and vacuum his house!

    wait, i don’t think that is enough of a threat…

    BTW,
    Tom did hook me up with a great system!
    I’m ready to upgrade. I even know how to sell my old stuff on e-bay.
    Now comes convincing Mom.

    “apartment neighbors who lived below our unit”

    I refer to these people as “cave dwellers”.

    “i will personally come over and vacuum his house”

    That doesn’t sound like much of a threat… Wait… that sounds oddly disturbing all of a sudden.
