I will never possess your expertise, nor will I have access to your version of Kitchen Stadium.

That being said my philosophy, if I have one, is to let whatever you're cooking be the star. If I have a piece of meat, then salt and pepper is the only thing I am going to season it with.

If I cook a steak and proceed to bury it under some crazy topping, then the meat isn't really the star, the crazy topping is. Also it is just way easier to season **** with salt, pepper, and olive oil
I sure talk a big talk
It's about just cooking and thinking about what you're cooking and always trying new things and thinking about it and think about it more. Ideas happen, experiments happen and you learn stuff, try even newer and better stuff and slowly building a foundation of well rounded chefy-ness. try some "advanced" recipes with ingredients, techniques that you're not familiar with. Simple things work great and they can absolutely taste great but with more complicated things, there's more learning and magic happening

That's a good way to start! I'm not even joking! Gotta take it easy. Get around to things in timely fashion but being panicked to be fully prepared for battle is a load of stress that's totally not worth it

Totally agree with you

August is that month where you find everything to do but it's still not enough and you get bored and you start to become depressed and sauggy with all that is wrong with your life and all that could be going better.

September, you better be a good month. School, life, CBA
Brrrinngggg it.

Back to work. Oh who am I kidding? I don't work. I hang out with middle school kids and try to show them how to grow up to not be a ******.

I have decided I am doing nothing this week at work. Three-day weekends are brutal.

Stanford study finds that organic food is no more healthier for you than non-organic food.

Why does this not surprise me in the least?

Monsanto says hi. I eat organic food because it isn't pumped full of antibiotics and sprayed with pesticides.

I also like supporting local farmers.

Did you look at the study? Supporting local farmers is great, but there is not a significant difference between pesticides in organic and non-organic foods.

And I don't know who or what Monsanto is.

Question for technology people:

Just received a $75 Amazon gift card. Looking to pick up a new pair of headphones. What are the best headphones I can get for $75? Over ear or ear buds is fine, doesn't matter to me.

Sennheiser is a good brand.

Sadly most people don't know either.

I'm not Christian, but this is a good article to start with:

http://www.csmonitor.com/Commentary/...e-undemocratic

They're one of the biggest cogs in agribusiness in this country.

If someone came on the boards and made an outrageous claim that Hank wanted a trade we would all want to know from what source.

With a study like this you have to ask the same questions. Sure Stanford did the study, but who paid them to do it?

Would you put it past a company like DuPont or Monsanto to fund a "study" such as this when roughly 40% of items in a grocery store contain corn in some form?

I wouldn't.

Over the ear :

Philips Accessories SHL5605BK/28
Audio Technica ATHES55BK
Sony XMB500 or the 700
Sony MDR-V6
Superlux HD-668 B


But what you should really do, is hold off on purchasing headphones now and wait until you get 60 bucks more than you can spend and get either :

Vmoda Crossfade LP
or
Audio Technica m50

Both are really great headphones

Thanks for the response. Don't really need anything too crazy though. Would you say that in general, over the ear headphones are better than earbuds?

What about these for example?

I wouldn't spend $65.00 on earbuds.

Like the other poster said, save up for headphones, if you really want better quality sound.

Over the ear headphones will have full sized drivers, which will always be better than ear buds

As for the sennheiser IEMs, I personally am not a fan of in ear monitors because I can never find a pair that fits, even with the extra small silicon pieces. But, you can never go wrong with Sennheiser

I used to go through at least a pair of ear buds every 2 months because they always got worn out and snagged somewhere.

Once I started buying over the ear headphones, I still haven't broken a pair and I own 3 or 4 pairs

I agree with what your saying. Of the ones you listed before, I think the Sony's look like the best bet.

However, one more question for you if you don't mind.

The Audio Technica m50's are $110 on Amazon. The Sony's are $72. Are the Audio Technica's really ~$40 better? What about the M30s by Audio Technica? Those are $40. Are the M50s that much better?

Thanks in advance.

Under the 200 dollar limit for headphones, the Audio Technica m50 headphones are generally regarded as the best possible headphones in the price range.

I personally haven't really tried the m30s that much. But they are fairly comfortable and apparently have a good sound quality
