When I was stationed in Memphis in the 80's, the town shut down with an inch of snow. The only plow in the county was on the base.

FWIW we were fine. We were smart. We stayed home and sat on the couch watching it on TV.

First of all, I never meant to offend anyone from Atlanta.

I'm glad to see you had the common sense to stay home.

Quite frankly, we have our *fools* up here that will still venture out in a raging blizzard with white-out conditions and icy roads....they find themselves stranded in some ditch and then call 911 for the State Troopers to come and rescue them. We laugh at them too for being so foolish (unless, of course, they find themselves unable to call for help and they pay the ultimate price...that's no laughing matter).

I got my DTS disc today. To me, it seems like it was recorded hot. I didn't break out my meter. Has anyone measured the disc levels?

Sorry for spurring so much OT, folks, but many of us seem to have spring fever. smile.gif Good thing we had our HTs over the winter, right? smile.gif Not a whole lot else to do on those deep wintry nights.

Toe,

Good times, man. Temps here have been golden, with our only "winter" (lows below 20F) lasting for ~2wks. Since then (middle of December), it's been 50s-70s during the day, and you know it's sunny! This really is the land of enchantment in so many ways, but I miss the serious winters in the upper Midwest - mostly for the snow and deep freezes. I love playing and driving in it!

I make it up there to Denver pretty frequently, so we should get together sometime for a hike 'n brew. Planning to go see a show at Red Rocks in April.

These NM "hills" aren't too small, though, as we got elevated yesterday and hit la cumbre above 11k. It's enough to make me short of breath! Big fan of the 14Ks up around Ouray and Crestone, and the lakes up at Taos.

Mongo171,

Yesterday it was the Jemez, which is prolly my favorite little-known place in NM. It's a mini grand canyon, right next to a supervolcano caldera, directly connected to the top secrets of underground Los Alamos, with desert and alpine cliffs, and gorgeous natural hot springs. I just wish it got a little more moisture, but the whole state could use more. The tourists can all stay in CO. wink.gif

I'm prolly a fool. I kinda like that 50mph breeze whipping the snow to 100% white-out conditions late at night on those straight roads in the upper Midwest. I took many trips out in those conditions, white knuckling the interstates at 75MPH...it's like racing crashes - you just have faith and keep on truckin'.

Time for me to confess....I, too, was once a FOOL...in my youth...when I actually thought I was invincible. I had a girlfriend, who is now my wife, that lived in the next town 25 miles away and there were numerous storms/blizzards that I traveled in to see her, and sometimes I was in a condition where my judgment was impaired as well. It's truly a miracle that I made it through those times unscathed! wink.gif

Yes I heard it was a major sleeper except when you hear Sandra moaning and breathing heavily....... I wonder when they recorded that?

 

I am expecting it from Netflix, won't be buying this any time soon maybe in the discount frenzy in November at $9.99

The correct solution was for people to stay home. We all had access to the forecast. Everybody knew what was expected. But everybody decided to go to work, go to school, go to the mall, whatever...and then when the forecasted weather hit, everybody went OH ****, time to go home, all at the same time.

Frankly, if you want to point fingers, point at every person who got stuck in it for being out there in the first place.

Down here they don't have the equipment to deal with it, because it very rarely happens, and just isn't worth the investment. 

The roads also do different things than they do up there. It had been very cold prior to that, below 10*, so the ground was unusually cold. Then it got warm and sunny. Then it rained.

FWIW we were fine. We were smart. We stayed home and sat on the couch watching it on TV.

As if everybody who was on the road was there by choice. My wife's a teacher and had to go to work because the school board didn't cancel school. All of a sudden, they decide to close and "come get your kids." Lots of them get stuck just trying to get their kids and get home before it got too bad. Too late, everybody left within the same 30min time span and the giant traffic jam was the result.
It would not have been as bad if they had treated the roads or done ANYTHING. They have the capability (though not like the northern states), you saw it two weeks later during the ice storm that caused minimal disruption because they were proactive and did what they were supposed to to avoid another local and national debacle (it IS election year😉). You're right that the resources are more limited and it was a perfect storm of cluster**** with the freezing temps etc, but it wasn't an impossible scenario.
Minus a three year stint in CO, I've lived here in atlanta all my life. With the exception of the last ice storm, it's always the same story when the Devil's Dandruff (thanks SNL) starts falling.

Very cool about you making it out to Denver at times! cool.gif Shoot me a PM in April before you come out for your show (who are you seeing?) or another time when you make it out in the summer and let's try and hook up for a hike. cool.gif I start a new job next Mon which will eat up my M-F, but weekends I will always be free!

Will do, Toe. smile.gif

Are there any good bass movies out recently? I've watched and/or measured several that haven't made the cut, such as 12 Years A Slave, Cold Comes the Night, Inside Llewyn Davis, Enemies Closer, American Hustle, The Wolf of Wall Street. Nothing really noteworthy, although American Hustle is a very solid film. Anything coming up to look forward to, now that we know The Hobbit 2 and 47 Ronin aren't great? Any requests?

Atomic bomb explosion is insane for me. Just shakes the whole house. Just plain crazy. And still have lots of headroom. Never heard mines bottom out yet.

Atomic bomb was good but the movie didn't hold much in the way of great bass moments IIRC. No sign of bottoming out my subs. biggrin.gif

That scene is neither deep nor too terribly intense, and your pb2000 has lots of protection to keep it from bottoming out, so I'm betting what you heard was the signal getting clipped somewhere in your chain.

Finally watched the entirety of Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Much better movie than the first, but man, what an anemic track. Sigh. It's slightly better than the first, (but so is a syndicated episode of Barney & Friends, so take that for what it's worth wink.gif) if only because of the scenes where Smaug is speaking. Still, so much lost opportunity.

Just signed up after reading this thread for what seems like years & really enjoying it & hope I can join in the fun :)  wth718 I watched Smaug couple of nights ago & like you found it very poor in the bass department :(

There was a couple of moments when Smaug knocked things over where I thought it was going to go low But Nope :( His voice was the highlight & a few very brief moments when gandalf had a magic fight with the Necromancer. Still very poor though :(

It sure has a ton of ULF but not ELF biggrin.gif semantics haha

I don't remember much about the mix but I thought the film was still enjoyable overall when I saw it in theaters

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

I saw Odd Thomas and agree. Yet to see John Dies, though. Will check it out.

Much better film than the first, IMO. I was thoroughly bored during the first and have had no desire to watch it again (except for the excellent video quality).

G'dammit...

I've been fighting using the term ELF for about a year now... I thought it would eventually just go away, but I guess it's here to stay.

For some reason "Ultra" sounds more significant than "Extreme"...IMO.

Plus I pride myself on being a ULFtard... Who want's to be an ELFtard?

For some reason "Ultra" sounds more significant than "Extreme"...IMO.

Plus I pride myself on being a ULFtard... Who want's to be an ELFtard?

ELFtard doesn't sound too bad haha. Relates to the hobbit!

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

It's pretty obvious that if you enjoyed the bass in the Hobbit then you will be labeled an 'ELFtard'. tongue.gif

I don't remember much about the mix but I thought the film was still enjoyable overall when I saw it in theaters

Wiki has it right. Extremely low frequency (ELF) waves are electromagnetic radiation (radio waves) with frequencies from 3 to 30 Hz. When you listen to audio, you do not listen to radio waves.

Still, so much lost opportunity.

Thanks again for the early report. Man, WTF happened with these Hobbit films and the horrible low end support?!? How does a film track dealing with a massive dragon and all the other things that call for big LFE support end up being such a train wreck? confused.gif While not surprising considering how bad the ball was dropped on part one for bass, the anemic LFE support is much more disappointing for me since I liked this film much more than the first. Sorry to rant, but what a letdown.

Yes I heard it was a major sleeper except when you hear Sandra moaning and breathing heavily....... I wonder when they recorded that?

 

I am expecting it from Netflix, won't be buying this any time soon maybe in the discount frenzy in November at $9.99


Some people really like it, you never know!!
