Vintage Stereo Equipment

I just joined a Vintage Stereo Equipment group on Facebook and I went searching online to see if I could find my first real setup. Found them all except the turntable, and that’s because I don’t remember what kind I had.e9ua7oPioneer 424 receiver. A big 12 watts per channel. This baby really pumped out the power.3Acosti Phase Monitor Speakers Phase 1. For the money, these speakers were excellent. They were made by a small company in Vermont.

I bought all this stuff from Crazy Eddie. I just found out that they were the main distributors of these speakers. 6 inch woofer and 1 inch dome tweeter. I think they might have been one of the first to have the dome tweeter.Akai CS-702DAkai CS-702D tape deck. To tape with Dolby or without? That is the question.

Crying Soccer Fans

brazil-fans-1-600x450I’ve been watching the World Cup. Never seen so many crying players and fans in my life. Look, half the teams that play lose. If your team loses, there’s no need to turn on the waterworks.  I bet most of these crying fans are the one that shove it in your face when their team wins.

You lost, deal with it. It’s not the end of the world. Mickey Mantle don’t pay your rent.

Jesus Freaks

Much as I hate to say this, I haven’t met one Jesus freak that wasn’t a nut job. Some of them are just out and out crazy, and some will be talking bad about people and when they leave, they say “God bless you” forgetting all about the crap they were saying about somebody behind their back.

The best part is these people don’t think there’s anything wrong with the way they act. You figure that people that love Jesus would be more kind and considerate to other people.

I think these people think they have a direct line to God and they can pass judgement just like God on people.
