Can you hear me now?

Recommended Posts

Years ago, in Canada, I was friends with an engineer colleague who was also a talented cartoonist, among many other things. He also loved audio, and did a cartoon I'll try to describe:

 

In the background there was an expensive looking stereo with a parametric equalizer and microphones attached to it. The equalizer sliders were perfectly aligned in the middle.

 

In the foreground was a picture of him in perspective, lying on the ground, dead, with a gun in his hand and a single bullet casing lying near.

 

Behind him were two police officers, one holding and looking at a suicide note. That officer said "It appears he spent $15,000 on a parametric equalizer only to find out that a flat setting was best."

 

Sadly, my friend died in 2017. https://montrealgazette.remembering.ca/obituary/khurram-syed-1066420715

Audio porn. I can hear you. I think you may be having an eargasm.

All apologies for the graphic images. My wife must have placed her 16 minute version of "Love to Love You" into Thelonious Monk's record sleeve.

An audiophile was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess".
He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.
The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week." The audiophile took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.
The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you and do ANYTHING you want." Again the audiophile took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.

Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, that I'll stay with you for a week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?"

The audiophile said, "Look I'm an audiophile. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool."

I've heard that one about engineers. :D

I'll try to find the cartoon I wrote about above.
