Earlier in the month, I witnessed something quite hilarious – kinda tragic but funny; and I wrote about it on Facebook. Now it’s here for posterity. I’d add a picture of a militant mosquito but I’m too poor to buy it so you guys will just have to use your imagination.
“Just saw the funniest thing…
While taking a piss, a mosquito flew right into the arcing trajectory of my liquid waste, commonly known to normal people as urine or piss, or wee wee, whatever.
Anyway, the little flying critter must think herself a daredevil or something and heeded not my barely audible verbal warning to stay clear of the stream of slightly yellow fluid as she flew straight for it like some sort of disillusioned kamikaze pilot from WW2. I was like, “No Mozzie, no!”, but you know, all whispery like, lest the colleagues outside the loo think me deranged – which I probably am. Now that I think about it, maybe language was the culprit.
Well, like I was saying, the brave blood sucker flew right into that almost vertical (it’s arcing actually hence almost vertical) warm piss and needless to say was hit by a torrent of scalding hot waste water – well, at least to the mosquito… and died. As gravity helped it along its way to the bottom of the urinal, I couldn’t help but say, “Told you so!”
Moral of the story to all you budding airborne tiny critters, stay away from my piss. True story!”
Truly, I have been blessed to have you in my life!
About a year or so ago, I bought a pair of UE700s and I love those tiny sound beans to bits! A couple of weeks back, the wiring on the right side got ripped (right after the warranty expired) and I’m left with a mono UE700. Listening to Led Zeppelin in forced mono is like being force-fucked – feels good but oh so wrong.
Enter the Sony XBA-3. Sony’s latest offering and the new kid on the balanced armature IEM block. Sony actually has a full range of these BA earpieces, from the single BA model to quad BA, noise cancelling and wireless. I chose the triple driver XBA-3 and at RM899, it’s the cheapest triple armature IEM in Malaysia. In comparison, I purchased the UE700 for RM999 which has seen a price reduction to RM689 while the Q-jays are still going strong at RM999 in some retail stores. Would other manufactures start lowering their prices to compete? I certainly hope so! Would Sony pose threat as a solid competitor in terms of sound quality? Maybe. Continue reading
New material again. This time it’s a cover of the Beatles’ Come Together. Inspired while listening to Filter’s Jurassitol. Vocals aren’t great. Working on it. Continue reading
I can’t remeber the last time I sat down and really wrote a piece, showcasing my emotion in music. It’s been a while, it’s been too long. Please enjoy, Le Cœur Vide (The Empty Heart).
Roughly 12 months back I wrote about my hunt for a new pair of quality IEMs (view post here). I’m pleased to report that I have found and purchased something I really like. It certainly took a while but after trying out IEMs the likes of AKG’s K370, Sennheiser ‘s CX 400 II, Klipsch’s Image S4, Monster’s Turbine & Beats and Ultimate Ears’ SuperFi 5 & UE700, I finally made up my mind to go with the UE700 and I’m genuinely pleased with my purchase. Hit the jump for a mini review. Continue reading
