Birfdays

I think the topic of this week should be birthdays. This is for a couple of reasons; one being that they seem to be almost inescapable this week, the second being that I just celebrated my 20th. (If you're hoping to tell me happy birthday then no.. no you shouldn't. You're a week late). But does anyone else notice that birthdays seem to have this sort of exponential graph that just plummet down in significance? (lemme actually draw the graph for you real quick: \
                       \
                         \
                           \V Bam! Just a downward arrow.) Not even just others' birthdays, but your own as well. Like the day you were born drastically makes less and less of an impact as it fights with you for average daily chores like homework, or going to get drinks, or eating. I guess I'm just sort of waiting for the point where I start to look forward to other people's birthdays more than my own. Or when a birthday means, "Here's a cliche tie, daddy!" With which I'll respond, "Have you ever seen me wear a tie??" And even that's just speculation, I'll probably like ties more than my birthday by then. *shrugs So from me to you, stop and reflect on your birthdays and don't shudder at the thoughts of ties.

EDIT 6/25/2013: Since writing this in school, I've started to wear ties regularly and enjoy shopping for them. It's only a matter of time now...

My Thoughts on Audio Technica's ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones

Let's start by introducing the pair I got in the mail.




These are Audio Technica's ATH-M50 headphones and the site has them listed as professional grade studio headphones. That's all well and good, but when you see the price you wonder if it can really live up to that label. At anywhere between $160 to $180 online these headphones are priced well below what you will find most other studio cans. 






































As you can see, I opted for the white version as I prefer their looks to the slightly more plain black version, but they're also available in a limited edition silver and a limited edition red color.

They also fold up for ease of carrying. 






























































In the box you get the pair, some documentation, a matching carrying pouch, and a ¼" adapter in case you have some other professional audio equipment. These headphones also come with a one year limited manufacturer warranty. All you have to do is fill out the included documentation and send it in within 10 days of purchasing them.









Bull-ez

I remember a distinct bully from middle school. Which, I think is agreeably every child's worst experience. There was a bully. Not just to me, of course, there were other kids in the same painful boat. Painful, wooden, hormonally-rocking boat. But I digress. I remember a single distinct incident in which said bully, named Mario... let me stop and tell you about Mario, actually. Mario had always been a symbol of Italian justice in my eyes. He had been ever since I took up my first controller to play as Nintendo's popular Italian plumber platforming title. But this Mario is in no way tantamount to his mustached counterpart. But now I re-digress. This incident occurred on a very important testing day when I had donned my slightly nicer than average clothing. Without warning in what seemed to be one fluid he spit on my pants. Unannounced, without purpose, but with fury. I wanted to just leap from the chair and slug him one right in his un-mustached face, but I knew he would take m…

Introducing: "Real Talk"!

This is going to be fairly short and sweet. Just dropping in to say that, in the time to come, I'll probably pick up using this blog again. Hooray, right?!?! Anyways just be on the lookout for posts. (as if I'll let you avoid them)
