    Ever stopped to think that hi-fi is a bit of a nerds hobby, that it is full of bullshit, and that you, of all people, might actually be slightly odd?

    Been out with my son this afternoon, and came back with a Shure SM57, a DI box, a couple of 5m Klotz XLR leads, and a microphone stand.
    A quick test has shown that using quality equipment yields superior results (better sounding than a DAW with plugins).

    You think HiFi is nerdy?

    Once we've made sense of our world, we wanna go fuck up everybody else's because his or her truth doesn't match mine. But this is the problem. Truth is individual calculation. Which means because we all have different perspectives, there isn't one singular truth, is there?

    Oh yes - especially the sums of money 'invested' in the absurd notion of dragging a tiny piece of diamond through a wiggly grove cut into a piece of plastic.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I'm happy to confess to being slightly eccentric. I'm nearly fifty so that's allowed. Anyway it is an Englishman's God-given right to be eccentric. It's practically compulsory.

    Anyone who dedicates themselves to a hobby would probably be seen as a nerd by those who don't indulge in the same hobby.

    Maybe some hobbies do attract nerdy connotations more than others....train spotting, metal dectectorist, audiophiles?
