Hi. My name is Eric. I'm 37 years old and listen to music from a set of $50 Logitech's.

This is the 1st step - only 11 more to go in the program!

Just think, once the children have grown and are out in the world - you can start replacing those components!!!

By the time my kids are out of the house I'll be wearing hearing aids.

12 steps to recover from addition to expensive audio equipment.

1. Admit we were powerless over our audio equipments durability after the warranty period.
2. Come to believe that natural sounds and inexpensive speakers can be equal to those reproduced by our ridiculously expensive equipment.
3. Made a decision to turn our focus to the inaudible things in our life.
4. Make a fearless inventory of our equipment, even the cheap crap.
5. Admit to God, to ourselves, and to another human beings the true cost of our inventory of audio equipment.
6. Become entirely ready to remove the entire inventory of expensive audio equipment.
7. Humbly sell, give, and otherwise remove or destroy the excessively expensive equipment.
8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed or ignored while obsessing over or expensive audio equipment.
9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would just seem ridiculous.
10. Continued to take inventory of our equipment, yes even the cheap crap, and if we become obsessive again promptly admitted it.
11. Pray to god, any god who will listen, that none of the aforementioned equipment is still being paid for on credit!
12. Spread what you have learned to others and steer them clear of the pitfalls and folly of an addiction to expensive audio equipment.

After the tower of power, I never went through these 12 steps to recover from expensive audio equipment addiction. However; I am no longer addicted to expensive audio equipment nor do I have any of the ridiculously expensive audio equipment to show for my efforts. All I have today is an even more expensive addiction to professional photographic equipment, touring sedans, fine cigars, and aged single malt Scotch! When not dealt with the road of addiction is a long one my friends, be ye warned!

And when it's all said and done, you end with with a point & shoot, a Cavalier, some Swisher Sweets and some cheap blended Clan McGregor Scotch.

I suck.

Do I need to remind you that I now live alone?! And also how likely this is to continue as the norm for me? believe me you are blessed with those $50 dollar speakers, and all that comes with them...

I know it's late, I know you're weary
I know your plans don't include me
Still here we are, both of us lonely
Longing for shelter from all that we see
Why should we worry, no one will care girl
Look at the stars so far away
We've got tonight, who needs tomorrow?
We've got tonight babe
Why don't you stay?

Deep in my soul I've been so lonely
All of my hopes fading away
I've longed for love like everyone else does
I know I'll keep searching even after today
So there it is girl, I've said it all now
And here we are babe, what do you say?
We've got tonight, who needs tomorrow?
We've got tonight babe
Why don't you stay?

I know it's late, I know you're weary
I know your plans don't include me
Still here we are, both of us lonely
Both of us lonely

We've got tonight, who needs tomorrow?
Let's make it last, let's find a way
Turn out the light, come take my hand now
We've got tonight babe
Why don't you stay?
Why don't you stay?

That is the single most humorous thing you have said.

I love it!!!! I'm not sure how many of the steps he'll be able to make it through though. :)

ps: Glad you made it home. Hope the trip back was more uneventful than the trip down. It was great getting to finally meet you!
