Brilliant. Just brilliant!
But, what is it? You have to click the image to see.
The question is... would you get one?
Because this is the coolest banner ever.
Because I love Klipsch fans.
Because I'm feeling generous today.
Because when you're cool, you should show it.
Download this. Print it. Hang it proudly in your stereo/home theater room.Click image to find all available sizes.
Well, someone asked for one. Here ya go. This is all I'm willing to give.
You're looking at the inside of the family locker room at the local gym. I am waiting for Steven to take 10 years to change into his swimsuit. I think he likes to put the shower soap into the toilet and flush it over and over, just to see what happens. Who am I to stiffle his education?
If someone saw me jump out of my car and hold up my iPod toward the building in the middle of the street, they might think I'm off my rocker. But that wouldn't necessarily be a new thought.
And voila! This is where I work, Hipstamatic-style.
Aren't iPod apps FUN?? I found this little gem just the other night, and have barely put it down. Except to eat. And sleep. And shower. Oh, and the whole work thing. I'm anxious to try it out on the Klipsch building, but let's face it...it's cold and I'm a wimp. But I'm actually venturing out for lunch, so maybe I can do a drive by photoshoot. If it turns out super cool, I'll post here again. I know, I know, you can't wait.
By the way, this is our patent wall as is currently stands. 37 plaques and counting.
Lots of snow today. Expecting a low of 2 degrees tonight. Be safe and bundle up folks.
Here's a chilly pic for you before I make my way home.
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live. ~Martin Luther King, Jr
It's a sad day to realize many young people in this country might thank Dr King for being such a stand-up guy so they can get a day off school, and admittedly, the thought crossed my mind as I lazed around yesterday with Steven. But after my third cup of coffee or so, I began to feel guilty in my shallowness, and I took it upon myself to do some reading, listening and teaching about the man himself -- what he stood for and his undying legacy. Although I've heard the "I have a dream" speech a hundred times (and it never fails to give me goose bumps), I had yet to share it with someone who has never heard it. Or understood it. Or even knew of its existence.
I think I love history so much because in its learning, the chance of repeating mistakes of the past is greatly diminished. So I pass along what I can, to my own tiny legacy in this world. May his eyes, ears, and heart remain wide open for the rest of his days.
Because I can't.
I just... can't.
I snapped this photo last week, but I'm going to go ahead and pretend I took it a few minutes ago. And that nothing out the window is actually completely covered in nasty white fluff, and that it's not still coming down as I type, and that I don't have to drive home in it a mere 3 hours from now. Denial is my new best friend.
What caused this is now over us. It's nice to have that in common, for once.
Thanks for the pic, Sharyl!!
Yikes, looks like I've neglected to make an appearance here for a few days. Seems like CES week leaves Klipsch a virtual ghost town, and consequently, I get that dazed "where-am-I-what-day-is-it" feeling. Perhaps it's out of sympathy for the people who actually attend and end up exhausted from it. But tomorrow will bring a flurry of activity with big ideas, innovations and an eye on a bright future. Successful shows always affect us that way.
I wonder if Paul felt like he was on a similar roller coaster at show times? I'm thinking yes.
Want to see our new stuff? Engadget did a pretty good job of briefly covering what we have on display at CES. I'll let them take it from here.
And I guess I can tell you now... I have some of the flat panel Gallery speakers set up at my domicile...and they sound fantastic. I love our engineers!
Pardon our dust...the folks from Engadget must have been taking pictures as we were still getting all set up yesterday..
If you haven't heard of Mumford & Sons yet, go now. Leave this blog immediately and find them. I have no idea what took me so long to discover this tremendously talented quartet of songwriters/musicians. I can't stop listening to the entire album over and over, and I have foresaken my entire playlist for just them. Well, for now anyway.
Usually I can pinpoint an easy favorite tune on all the albums I own, but not in the case of "Sigh No More". I love them all. So here's a random pick for the purpose of this blog, titled The Cave. Read the lyrics. In fact, read them all. You won't be disappointed.
Who am I to question an ad concept from the archives, but really?
We've come a long way, baby, dude.
