Sennheiser CX215 short review

Bought these today.

[spoiler]  [/spoiler]

 

Thoughts:

-pounding bass: which means it doesnt cover up the rest of the sounds which is good, but its kinda tiring for the ears. I'll have to get used to it.

-depending on the song the treble can be overwhelming

-good sound clarity

But probably not better than the CX270 which have a more even sound.

A rant

Here's why I hate and will probably never utter words like "I love you", "I'm in love with you", "You're beautiful", "I like you" etc

Because you can lie or exaggerate more easily with words. Not so much with actions (and exaggerated non-verbal reactions can be easily detected). I prefer to show what I feel.

Do some people really need to just hear it? Why the fvck does it matter so much?

Does it sound reasonable to anyone, when you're in a relationship and want to hear from the other person that they are not interested anymore when their behavior showed the same thing for a loooong time? Do intimate human relationships make us a bit autistic or something?

 

Fvck that...

(I miss you miss you)

Hello there the angel from my nightmare
The shadow in the background of the morgue
The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack and Sally if we want
Where you can always find me
And we'll have Halloween on Christmas
And in the night we'll wish this never ends
We'll wish this never ends

(I miss you I miss you)
(I miss you I miss you)

Where are you and I'm so sorry
I cannot sleep I cannot dream tonight
I need somebody and always
This sick strange darkness
Comes creeping on so haunting every time
And as I stared I counted
The Webs from all the spiders
Catching things and eating their insides
Like indecision to call you
and hear your voice of treason
Will you come home and stop the pain tonight
Stop this pain tonight

Don't waste your time on me you're already
The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)
Don't waste your time on me you're already
The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)

Don't waste your time on me you're already
The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)
Don't waste your time on me you're already
The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)
Don't waste your time on me you're already
The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)
Don't waste your time on me you're already
The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)

I miss you (miss you miss you)
(I miss you miss you)

Why many people think they can sing well

Its actually pretty simple imo and many of you have probably heard of it.

It most likely has to do with the fact that we dont hear our voice the same way others do. Because we also feel the timber of our voice from the inside which sounds probably fuller and more pleasant.

I realised this because when I hear myself in videos or sound recordings I sound a lot different. Then I actually heard someone refer to the above fact and... it makes sense.

I know most people would say "oh they're just delusional" or something but it cant be true for all of those with mediocre or crappy voices.

So, maybe next time someone you know tells you they think singing is their "destiny" but you know their voice sucks, just tell them that.

Thoughts

Hello.

I'm George, and I'm studying Greek Philology.

This year I'm trying to catch up with cIasses (the system in most public universities here is very flexible in general) and I know its gonna be very difficult starting from this September exams and for the next season.

I'm realising I'm not enjoying studying at all and dont enjoy life in general. Because I stick to the past and specifically my failures, or whatever can be perceived as a failure by me. Anything from something I said which sounds awful/inappropriate in hindsight (usually those are seen as just signs of social awkwardness), a social interaction during which I didnt manage to turn my social auto-pilot off and really enjoy myself, to more serious stuff like a cIass I failed which I could have studied for a lot more.

At the same time, in order to counter this overwhelming feeling of failure I try to trivialise things and reassure myself that "its gonna be ok" while its not gonna be ok.

So yeah... anyway, sometimes I do feel motivated by the desire to have a good life and be able to enjoy some of the few things I still somewhat enjoy (a beautiful urban environment, variety in food, some music etc) and other things I crave (intimacy, someone to trust etc) but they are rare moments. I know they shouldnt be. I cant go on like that if I just think of the things I must do. I used to always be driven by the things I want and it worked but now... idk.

Fruit products and their nasty seeds

A while ago I had bought a jam which I wanted to devour the minute I bought it. Little did I know that the jam had a ****load of seeds in it from the fruit. And it wasnt strawberry jam, in which case the seeds are so tiny that its no problem. Its like some a-hole in the factory decided to throw some coarse sand in the mixture, kinda like the stories we hear about waiters spitting in your food before they bring it to you.

I asked a couple people online UNTIL.... I found the culprit of this situation: the consumers themselves who actually want fruit products to have seeds in them!

The rationale was "I feel like I'm eating real fruit". Well you're NOT eating fruit. You're eating a product that is made out of fruit.

Today I decided to eat a fruit yogurt and the same thing happened.

So please, fruit product companies, do the right thing and dont include the seeds inside your fruit products. Its ****ing annoying trying to chew on tiny pebbles.

That's all.
