    So basically we have two classes of listeners here: the OCD guys and the porno men! Is that it? Or can we have a third category?

    I eat Grape-Nuts while I listen because I like percussion.

    For many of the people here this is weird, but I try to get best sound possible out of my gear, and have a noise free environment to enjoy it. I have moved my refrigerator to the garage, and had the house insulated to reduce background noise. Plus I have spent beau coup dollars on cables, power conditioner, and dedicated AC line. This applies to both the stereo and HT. Now I am drinking a beer, listening to Shelby Lynne's Just A Little Lovin', and loving my weirdness.

    Now now, we know you can't get a listen in 'til you visit your favorite emporium. Perhaps you just need to disgust one sense before you please another?

    Nothing really weird for me. I like the house to be quiet, and I like sitting on the floor. That whole tweeter at ear level thing doesn't hold water for me anyway.

    I've done this occasionally, but not in a while. Its actually a cool experience. You not only get to hear the music, but you get to feel the music as well, more so than just sitting on a couch. Don't knock it 'til you try it.

    Hanging by my feet from the ceiling fan and turning it on high. Kinda gives you a pseudo-surround sound type of vibe as you spin around.

    Wow. I haven't thought of that show in years. Buffy Jody and Sissy were favorites of mine when I was a kid. Now I will always picture Mr. French looking like that ugly chick from the Drew Carey show!!

    i'm an odd number guy, always have been. If it shows a number it has to be odd. temperature, volume. Not sure why either, if it is on a even number i start to fidget until i change it. my wife will even leave things on an even number to see how long it takes me to change it.

    Well of course a Big Fatty makes everything sound Irie mon,lol
    You also get the occasional moment of clarity where everything falls into place like when I was training to be a phone technician and was overwhelmed with all the schooling, I was sitting at home had a Fatty and BOOM it all fell into place in my head.

    Not exactly listening while the habit takes place, but I always warm up my rig with the same Enya CD played on an endless loop at lower volume.

    It has to be dark, both outside and in. And there has to be booze. Only then are things appropriate and right. Once or twice an hour I get up from my seat and make sure all of the speaker and interconnect cables are snug. I never remove the grilles. It's too personal, like making eye contact while making love. I don't do that.

    For some reason I have to wear my glasses. Maybe it's the rubber cupped hands I have attached to the stems?

    Nah, weird is when I get in a mood and spread marshmellow fluff and honey all over my naked body......which of itself isn't too weird if a girl is present, but unfortunately in my case...not !
