Obscene amounts of lucre.

I guess I'll cancel my thread on wris****ches.

That's a great swear filter catch On the old Richard Thompson forum years back, Saturday got changed to Sadoggie-dooay. The thread it was spotted in was full of posts from people, me included, typing Saturday to see if it really happened.

Only part seriously, but within the topic. Many years ago part of my job role was to consider requests for help to purchase clothing. The guideline was 'one to wear, one for spare, one in the wash'. So is it obscene that M&S (for example) sell socks in packs of seven. Or is it relative? Or is it not obscene because people don't post pictures? Except of course those people who include their feet in their equipment pictures....

It's just awful how people with more money than me spend it on expensive stuff and then discuss their stuff with other people who have more money than me about their own stuff.

It's all so unfair.

Why can’t we have more ways than ‘like’ to show how we feel for you than replying. Facebook managed to do it. Stick to the music room as the music is what matters.

The first ever post I read on this forum about four years ago was by someone who said that people who bash Naim were just jealous that they couldn't afford it.  I thought that was just about the most odious thing I'd read on this forum until this week and it's been surpassed three times in a week now. Well done.

I’ve been called elitist in here because I kept money in my back account rather than buy a 282, which I didn’t like enough to shell out for. Takes all sorts.

Then there are those who try to shame you because you must conform to their view of the world or be bad by default. But that's just wanking. 

Lighten up, Bob.

Hint...

Richard suggested in that other forum when all the groaning started in the System 2018 thread about the alleged Filthy Rich OCD floating about, that the drift should start again over here in the Padded Cell.

To quote the late Lord Upminster:

"A sense of humour is required, amongst the bacon rind".

Just never buy a second hand mouse or keyboard from them. Past that, life goes on and you take the good with the bad.

Shall we add that to the Ian Dury criteria?

Those were his only 2 items he insisted must be bought new.

OK. Now we're talking about something worth talking about

That album still gets plenty of spins around here. Well, streams, to be pedantic. Dare I call it unique? Yes, I think I will.

I've grown accustomed to wearing cashmere socks so packs of seven pairs would be obscene.

Just get some Bitcoin and wait 5 years. You'll be able to then post pics of various personal jet interiors to get forum members input. 

The lad pictured on the Ian Dury cover is his son Baxter Dury (I believe). If you haven't given it a listen, his Prince of Tears album from last year is well worth a go. Warning... There is a bit of swearing if you are easily offended. Sorry, all a bit off topic, but as a general rule I am not remotely offended how much anyone spends on cars holidays houses or hi fi. I do get offended though when people evade their taxes. Hope that is not too controversial.

This one was done by the same design firm that did mine......
