Another example of why I quit visiting the asylum.
Is Stereophile guilty of the abhorrent conduct alleged by manufacturer Jeff Joseph and posted on the Audio Asylum message board?
Of course. If it's on the Internet, it must be true. :-) The difficult thing was finding someone who, in the Southern phrase, "needed killin'."
I knew that man. I was in the lounge at Harrah's when he and Janis Ian did an impromptu duet, a number based on her hit song, "Breaking Silence." It was called "Breaking Wind."
I saw JA in the back, under a cocktail table, bootlegging a copy for later duplication and distribution. The singer, whose name I didn't catch, found out and was looking for JA, with malicious intent. I heard that, during the confrontation, JA clubbed him to death with a cardioid microphone. The part about "shooting" was made up by Mr. Joseph as a dramatic embellishment, to add an old west color to the ugly scene and thus romanticize it. Bad stuff.
But this is one of the prime ways southern women can have a TV career is by calling the Cops, get on the TV Show: Cops, and then be seen on TV yellin out the front door of her double-wide at the cops as they take her husband off in the cop car, yellin, "And lock is $%%^^ up" with her womanhood jostlin around in her tube-top like two cats and a bulldog in a burlap bag!!!!!
Somebody pass that beef jerky over here, will ya! Man, THIS is reality TV.
AA: A great place to be from.
Hey. I know this woman. Name's Garthie. 308 pounds o' southern comfort. Met her at a bass fishing tournament. Got cozy in a weed bed under the pier. Didn't know she was married, though. Wow. Close call. Coulda been ME in that squad car.
No distinguished Audiophile needs THAT MUCH reality!!! This hobby is supposed to keep you out of bars and chasing wild women. At least that's my wife's story.
