    Rheal Cormier dead of cancer at 53

    Aw, man. Late '90s Virtual Rheality was a blast. I ran into him on 42nd Street on my lunch break during the '99 ALCS and chatted with him for a couple of minutes - he was a really nice guy. R.I.P., Frenchy.

    Non-Streaming Alternatives to iTunes/iPod

    I bought a Fiio X5 (3rd generation) a couple of years ago and love it. The memory is expandable to at least 256GB. It has bluetooth, but I never use it. The sound is incredible - far beyond my old iPod classic. That said, the interface and the controls are goofy as hell. Everything just...

    Looking for hifi audio help... plunge into vinyl

    I like direct over belt due to the accuracy of RPMs as well as the fact that I don't have to worry about it wearing out as quickly, at least, as a belt. A lot of people prefer belts due to the fact that they're quieter, but I've never noticed my DD causing any vibrations, distortion, etc. My...

    Looking for hifi audio help... plunge into vinyl

    I'd hang on to your receiver for the time being - the photo preamp is a plus and even though the '90s don't seem that long ago, stuff was made a lot more solid back then. I'm not a fan of the Pro-Ject TT. A couple of friends have them and they don't have auto-return (so you have to get up and...

    October 27, 2004: Where were you/Best Memory?

    I watched the last 2 games of the ALCS and the first 3 games of the WS alone in my apartment so I could have an ongoing nervous breakdown in peace.  I worked fairly close to the Riv, and had spent the better part of the last 3 seasons there, so when a fellow regular offered to sneak me in...

    What year is your favorite Red Sox season?

    2004, of course, even though I can't really separate '03 and '04 in the sense that it was a constant psychodrama from Opening Day '03 straight through to 10/27/04.  Even that offseason was more exciting than most regular seasons I can remember.   Regardless, that was the pinnacle and thank God...

    Who are you rooting for in October?

    Mets all the way.  Howie Rose and Josh Lewin call a very entertaining game, so the Mets have been my go-to on the radio the last few years.  They're a fun team to root for and watching them take off after the Flores episode and the acquisition of Cespedes has made for a really exciting month of...
