A low life is a low life.  
 
Recently I tried to rearrange my rack a bit to try to hook up leftover gears (to feel less guilty). Revisited my DIY speakers and damn... I am still floored with what a cheap drivers in a Ap Liu Street $200 box can do.  
 
It has no bass, no treble. Yet, recent confusion I have... er... never not confused all thru these years.... anyway, I keep wondering what contribute to the "Musicality" of a system. Where does it comes from?  
 
Maybe it is the micro dynamics and detail in the midrange?  
 
Still puzzled.

Lots of luck on concerts these days.  
 
Attended Gary Graffman's recital today and left me speechless. His musicality is superb - great flow, phrasing and colors. All as a result of his absolute control on his left hand or I should say each finger individually.  
 
A real virtuoso to me. Like a magician. I sometimes have to stare at his hand to believe only his left is moving. Looking is a distraction I guess but could resist to peek...  
 
Thanks again to PK1 for the ticket and the Chopin Society for organizing.

Like a teenager, I now have an idol after all these years. Best recital concert I have even heard and probably hard to beat going forward. Her major challenge is to keep up with all the sudden fame and fortune pouring in. Prodigy for sure but prodigy usually goes down over time. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Good old days... back then most parents have 藤條 and kids wore shorts to school. We would look at each other's zebra leg and show sympathy. This is probably an important part of the schoolmate bonding.

Of course result is not guaranteed, it depends on whether the time is well spent. In fact there are too many parents spending too much time on their children, depriving them of the freedom and the environment to develop.

Indeed I kind of ditch my loser thread. Yet, a loser is still a loser regardless of where I am, posting or not posting.  
 
These days have been hectic.... Drained from my kid's Primary 1 school application. I could not believe being a parent is so damn hard these days... the application filling, the open day, the asking around and the fucking portfolio preparation....  
 
Anyway, thanks for reminding me to keep reminding you guys that I am still alive.  
 
These days, I have been experimenting digital crossover. Also kind of trying to listen to youtube more. Whenever I need a break, I click the next window.  
 
Following is my favorite clip recently. I watch on average, 3-4 times a day.  
 
Enjoy.

女人- 梁實秋  
 
 
1本篇及下篇《男人》,作者意在揭女人和男人的丑,而不是把女人和男人都否定。  
                              ——編者注。  
  有人說女人喜歡說謊;假如女人所捏撰的故事都能抽取版稅,便很容易致富。這問題在什么叫做說謊。若是運用小小的机智,打破眼前小小的窘僵,獲取精神上小小的胜利,因而犧牲一點點真理,這也可以算是說謊,那么,女人确是比較的富于說謊的天才。有具体的例證。你沒有陪過女人買東西嗎?尤其是買衣料,她從不干干脆脆的說要做什么衣,要買什么料,准備出多少錢。她必定要東挑西揀,翻天覆地,同時口中念念有詞,不是嫌這匹料子太薄,就是怪那匹料子花樣太舊,這個不禁洗,那個不禁晒,這個縮頭大,那個門面窄,批評得人家一文不值。其實,滿不是這么一回事,她只是嫌价碼太貴而已!如果价錢便宜,其他的缺點全都不成問題,而且本來不要買的也要購儲起來。一個女人若是因為炭貴而不升炭盆,她必定對人解釋說:“冬天升炭盆最不衛生,到春天容易喉嚨痛!”屋頂滲漏,塌下盆大的灰泥,在未修補之前,女人便會向人這樣解釋:“我預備在這地方安裝電燈。”自己上街買菜的女人,常常只承認散步和呼吸新鮮空气是她上市的唯一理由。艷羡汽車的女人常常表示她最厭惡汽油的臭味。坐在中排看戲的女人常常說前排的頭等座位最不舒适。一個女人饋贈別人,必說:“實在買不到什么好的……,”其實這東西根本不是她買的,是別人送給她的。一個女人表示愿意陪你去上街走走,其實是她順便要買東西。總之,女人總歡喜拐彎抹角的,放一個小小的煙幕,無傷大雅,頗占体面。這也是藝術,王爾德不是說過“藝術即是說謊”么?這些例證還只是一些并無版權的謊話而已。  
  女人善變,多少總有些哈姆雷特式,拿不定主意;問題大者如离婚結婚,問題小者如換衣換鞋,都往往在心中經過一讀二讀三讀,決議之后再复議,复議之后再否決,女人決定一件事之后,還能隨時做一百八十度的大轉彎,做出那与決定完全相反的事,使人無法追隨。因為變得急速,所以容易給人以“脆弱”的印象。莎士比亞有一名句:“‘脆弱’呀,你的名字叫做‘女人!’”但這脆弱,并不永遠使女人吃虧。越是柔韌的東西越不易摧折。女人不僅在決斷上善變,即便是一個小小的別針位置也常變,午前在領扣上,午后就許移到了頭發上。三張沙發,能擺出若干陣勢:几根頭發,能梳出無數花頭,講到服裝,其變化之多,常達到荒謬的程度。外國女人的帽子,可以是一根雞毛,可以是半只鐵鍋,或是一個畚箕。中國女人的袍子,變化也就夠多,領子高的時候可以使她象一只長頸鹿,袖子短的時候恨不得使兩腋生風,至于鈕扣盤花,滾邊鑲繡,則更加是變幻莫測。“上帝給她一張臉,她能另造一張出來。”“女人是水做的”,是活水,不是止水。  
  女人善哭。從一方面看,哭常是女人的武器,很少人能抵抗她這淚的洗禮。俗語說:“一哭二睡三上吊”,這一哭确實其勢難當。但從另一方面看,哭也常是女人的內心的“安全瓣”。女人的忍耐的力量是偉大的,她為了男人,為了小孩,能忍受難堪的委曲。女人對于自己的享受方面,總是屬于“斯多亞派”的居多。男人不在家時,她能立刻變成為素食主義者,火爐里能爬出老鼠,開電燈怕費電,再關上又怕費開關。平素既已极端刻苦,一旦精神上再受刺激,便忍無可忍,一腔悲怨天然的化做一把把的鼻涕眼淚,從“安全瓣”中汩汩而出,騰出空虛的心房,再來接受更多的委曲。女人很少破口罵人(罵街便成潑婦,其實甚少,)很少揎袖揮拳,但淚腺就比較發達。善哭的也就常常善笑,迷迷的笑,吃吃的笑,格格的笑,哈哈的笑,笑是常駐在女人臉上的,這笑臉常常成為最有效的護照。女人最像小孩,她能為了一個滑稽的姿態而笑得前仰后合,肚皮痛,淌眼淚,以至于翻筋斗!哀与樂都像是常川有備,一触即發。  
  女人的嘴,大概是用在說話方面的時候多。女孩子從小就往往口齒伶俐,就是學外國語也容易琅琅上口,不像嘴里含著一個大舌頭。等到長大之后,三五成群,說長道短,聲音脆,嗓門高,如蟬噪,如蛙鳴,真當得好几部鼓吹!等到年事再長,万一墮入“長舌”型,則東家長,西家短,飛短流長,搬弄多少是非,惹出無數口舌;万一墮入“噴壺嘴”型,則瑣碎繁雜,絮聒嘮叨,一件事要說多少回,一句話要說多少遍,如噴壺下注,万流齊發,當者披靡,不可向邇!一個人給他的妻子買一件皮大衣,朋友問他“你是為使她舒适嗎?”  
  那人回答說:“不是,為使她少說些話!”  
  女人膽小,看見一只老鼠而當場昏厥,在外國不算是奇聞。中國女人膽小不至如此,但是一聲霹雷使得她拉緊兩個老媽子的手而仍戰栗不止,倒是确有其事。這并不是做作,并不是故意在男人面前做態,使他有机會挺起胸脯說:“不要怕,有我在!”她是真怕。在黑暗中或荒僻處,沒有人,她怕;万一有人,她更怕!屠牛宰羊,固然不是女人的事,殺雞宰魚,也不是不費手腳。膽小的緣故,大概主要的是体力不濟。女人的体溫似乎較低一些,有許多女人怕發胖而食無求飽,營養不足,再加上怕臃腫而衣裳單薄,到冬天瑟瑟打戰,襪薄如蟬翼,把小腿凍得作“漿米藕”色,兩只腳放在被里一夜也暖不過來,雙手捧熱水袋,從八月捧起,捧到明年五月,還不忍釋手。抵抗饑寒之不暇,焉能望其膽大。  
  女人的聰明,有許多不可及處,一根棉線,一下子就能穿入針孔,然后一下子就能在線的盡頭處打上一個結子,然后扯直了線在牙齒上砰砰兩聲,針尖在頭發上擦抹兩下,便能開始解決許多在人生中并不算小的苦惱,例如縫上襯衣的扣子,補上襪子的破洞之類。至于几根篾棍,一上一下的編出多少樣物事,更是令人叫絕。有學問的女人,創辟“沙龍”,對任何問題能繼續談論至半小時以上,不但不令人入睡,而且令人疑心她是內行。

男人 - 梁實秋  
 
 
 
男人令人首先感到的印象是髒!當然,男人當中亦不乏刷洗干淨洁身自好的,甚至還有油頭粉面衣冠楚楚的,但大体講來,男人消耗肥皂和水的數量要比較少些。某一男校,對于學生洗澡是強迫的,入浴簽名,每周計核,對于不曾入浴的初步懲罰是宣布姓名,最后的斷然處置是定期強迫入浴,并派員監視,然而日久玩生,簽名簿中尚不無浮冒情事。有些男人,西裝褲盡管挺直,他的耳后脖根,土壤肥沃,常常宜于种麥!襪子手絹不知隨時洗滌,常常日積月累,到處塞藏,等到無可使用時,再從那一堆污垢存貨當中揀選比較干淨的去應急。有些男人的手絹,拿出來硬像是土灰面制的百果糕,黑糊糊黏成一團,而且內容丰富。男人的一雙腳,多半好像是天然的具有泡菜霉干菜再加糖蒜的味道,所謂“濯足万里流”是有道理的,小小的一盆水确是無濟于事,然而多少男人卻連這一盆水都吝而不用,怕傷元气。兩腳既然如此之髒,偏偏有些“逐臭之夫”喜于腳上藏垢納污之處往复挖掘,然后嗅其手指,引以為樂!多少男人洗臉都是專洗本部,邊疆一概不理,洗臉完畢,手背可以不濕,有的男人是在結婚后才開始刷牙。“捫虱而談”的是男人。還有更甚于此者,曾有人當眾搔背,結果是從袖口里面摔出一只老鼠!除了不可挽救的髒相之外,男人的髒大概是由于懶。  
  對了!男人懶。他可以懶洋洋坐在旋椅上,五官四肢,連同他的腦筋(假如有),一概停止活動,像呆鳥一般;“不聞夫博奕者乎……”那段話是專對男人說的。他若是上街買東西,很少時候能令他的妻子滿意,他總是不肯多問几家,怕跑腿,怕費話,怕講价錢。什么事他都嫌麻煩,除了指使別人替他做的事之外,他像殘廢人一樣,對于什么事都愿坐享其成,而名之曰“室家之樂”。他提前養老,至少提前三二十年。  
  緊毗連著“懶”的是“饞”。男人大概有好胃口的居多。他的嘴,用在吃的方面的時候多,他吃飯時總要在菜碟里發現至少一吋見方半吋厚的肉,才能算是沒有吃素。几天不見肉,他就喊“嘴里要淡出鳥儿來!”若真個三月不知肉味,怕不要淡出毒蛇猛獸來!有一個人半年沒有吃雞,看見了雞毛帚就流涎三尺。一餐盛饌之后,他的人生觀都能改變,對于什么都樂觀起來。一個男人在吃一頓好飯的時候,他臉上的表情硬是在感謝上天待人不薄;他飯后銜著一根牙簽,紅光滿面,硬是覺得可以驕人。主中饋的是女人,修食譜的是男人。  
  男人多半自私。他的人生觀中有一基本認識,即宇宙一切均是為了他的舒适而安排下來的。除了在做事賺錢的時候不得不忍气吞聲的向人奴膝婢顏外,他總是要做出一副老爺相。他的家便是他的國度,他在家里稱王。他除了為嫌錢而吃苦努力外,他是一個“伊比鳩派”,他要享受。他高興的時候,孩子可以騎在他的頸上,他引頸受騎,他可以像狗似的滿地爬;他不高興時,他看著誰都不順眼,在外面受了悶气,回到家里來加倍的發作。他不知道女人的苦處。女人對于他的殷勤委曲,在他看來,就如同犬守戶雞司晨一樣的稀松平常,都是自然現象。他說他愛女人,其實他不是愛,是享受女人。他不問他給了別人多少,但是他要在別人身上盡量榨取。他覺得他對女人最大的恩惠,便是把賺來的錢全部或部分拿回家來,但是當他把一卷卷的鈔票從衣袋里掏出來的時候,他的臉上的表情是驕傲的成分多,親愛的成分少,好像是在說:“看我!你行么?我這樣待你,你多幸運!”他若是感覺到這家不复是他的樂園,他便有多樣的藉口不回到家里來。他到處云游,他另辟樂園。他有聚餐會,他有酒會,他有橋會,他有書會畫會棋會,他有夜會,最不濟的還有個茶館。他的享樂的方法太多。假如輪回之說不假,下世僥幸依然投胎為人,很少男人情愿下世做女人的。他總覺得這一世生為男身,而享受未足,下一世要繼續努力。  
  “群居終日,言不及義”,原是人的通病,但是言談的內容,卻男女有別。女人談的往往是“我們家的小妹又病了!”“你們家每月開銷多少?”之類。男人的是另一套,普通的方式,男人的談話,最后不談到女人身上便不會散場。這一個題目對男人最有興味。如果有一個桃色案他們唯恐其和解得太快。他們好議論人家的陰私,好批評別人的妻子的性格相貌。“長舌男”是到處有的,不知為什么這名詞尚不甚流行。
