    Why I Waited Twenty Five Years for Billie Eilish!

    Don’t panic!! This isn’t about obsession… It’s about inspiration! I’m gonna inspire you all here - and there is a lesson to be had! This is about something that we all identify with and I feel like I just have to write about it. This is about the importance of knowing what inspires you, and always being mindful of it, so that you don’t look back on life and realise that your inspiration walked right on by and you didn’t even give it a nod, you may not have even noticed. That is a day of regret.

    Do you need golden ears to appreciate good HiFI

    The conundrum is that the second group know how to listen and they create equipment that they can’t fully hear, for a group of people who can hear better than them but who don’t fully listen.Clearly what we need is more younger people getting into ‘real’ HiFi because they have a skill that I would sooooooo dearly like to have again. A natural attribute that is seems shameful to waste - They have the upper 4kHz of dreams!!
