    Hours of his time spent enriching our lives with his wit and charm!

    Cheers,

    Jesus Christ I need a new hobby.

    Oh well, hopefully some folks found some benefit, some found some laughter, some found some good deals. The rest can kiss my ass.

    I'd like to thank the Academy, and all my fans for getting me this far. I'd also like to thank George Grand, Bacardi Select Rum, Dos Equis, Hormel Canned Tamales, and last but certainly not least - Polk Audio.

    So when's the 'roast'?

    Cheers,
    Russ

    Ive always looked for my daily dose of Russ, Doro, and George to align myself with the world as seen by those that couldn't give a **** what anyone else thinks.

    Congrats, and wear your new crown with pride, but please put some clothes on when parading it around!:D :D

    Russ,

    A new hobby? 8000 posts? Im sure the wife has long replaced you by now. Loser. All that gear, all those good deals and good scores, and your still running F&$#@ Carver. You'd think by now you would have learned. After so many drinks it all starts to sound the same, eh?

    Congrats on your new benchmark. You have definately made a huge impact in my personal audio adventure, and many others.. I look forward to many more of your posts. You loser.

    Hey Sean, go f*ck yourself and that was uncalled for but what the hell would you know anyways.

    Go ahead and lay that groundwork for the next Polkfest, that's real smart.

    Time to add you to my "best friends" list, it was inevitable anyways.

    Looks like you got a lover too! Don't share him with anybody now, he's all yours.

    Joel,

    Nail - Hammer - the whole 9 yards .... thanks for putting 2 and 2, together. The flak is from the usual suspects. You can almost set your watch by them. Russ knows the score here, and since he is who we are honoring, that is all I need to know.

    I thought the post was fine, I even giggled a bit when I read it.

    Let's move on.

    Congrats, Russ! it has been what, 3+ years and counting?
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    On THIS version of the board, yes. I remember the OLD board, when this place probably didn't have 50 active (posting) members.

    Joel - I actually know Russ, he is my friend, as oppossed to reading a post from him every now and then. The statement was a little off the wall considering their relationship.

    Whether he giggled or not, it's an inappropriate comment IMO given current circumstances.

    Thanks for the tip on getting over myself however, that will certainly be real helpful.

    No more thread for me, cya.

    Zero - I changed my mind, my statement stands. Don't PM me anymore either.

    Russ:

    Last year at the Polk HQ gathering, I had Matt Polk sign 1 of my FX500 surrounds. It would be a HUGE honor to have the now legendary RUSSMAN sign the other one.

    Think about it...I'm watching a movie and glance to one side and see Matthew Polk scrolling up the one channel. I then glance to other side and see Russman scrolling up the other.

    I'm tearing up guys...give me a few to compose myself...

    Ok, I've been on this forum for a long time and only recently cracked a 1000 posts. Damn strippers take up all my time when I could be posting!!!

    U DA MAN Russ!

    John, talk about the value of your speakers taking a nose-dive.

    Besides, you are at least a year or two MY senior on good ole Club Polk, along with a few other fine (and shockingly handsome) gentlemen.

    Luc, always enjoyed your limericks, and style of saying what needed to be said - short and sweet.

    Tabasco? I put hot sauce ON my Tabasco. Tabasco is NOTHING for my iron gut.

    Jesus H. Christ!!! 8000?!?! WTF??? Notwithstanding all the time spent her, do you even have time to whip one off???

    All kidding aside, does the amount of posts have any kind of correlation to the size of that melon? If so, we're gonna have to get you started on some serious neck exercises...:D

    What does that make you, so far as rank? Oh I see, there is no belt needed for a Master of your caliber. I still consider you a friggin' walking Polk-a-pedia, screw what the other guys said...


    BTW, hooked up those Cobra's...SWEET. Thank you, as always, for the advice.
