I like Mike.
At no time have I not been up front with him or down on him in any way. He can back me up there. I have all our emails.
Even Mike knows this has gone on too long. He is a real man, and he would would surely question me if I stopped all contact and say "WTF?" Any man would.

I tried to use a few common friends to "middle" this.

I believe Mike is a solid guy and I chose him as he knows his audio shit, is an Marine and rides Harleys. He was in my Carverfest cabin, we made meals together - a solid guy on any chart.

I did not know the recent problems as to his kid as he never shared, and I understand why that is. I posted back a reply too quickly as loosing my boy hurts, and I saw his post in a way he did not intend. You don't move past loosing a kid.. No one is that tough, life is not long enough. You may think you just suck it up like loosing Mom, but you can't. It is not the same.

Mike, sorry. Wish I had known. For me the amp issue is settled. Looking back someday you can see how I thought you were just shinning me on.

As to the amps, have no idea what I would even do with them. I say we go back to square one, and I am leaving all that in your corner. Don't mail until they are up to your high standard. Take ten years. I trust you. I just did not know.




As to TOY butting in -- good fun!!

Toy "toying" around and not being real, just vindictive, is why I started YC. (did it all myself such as it is, did not hire help from offshore. It is ALL-American made.) Letting TOM speak for Toy is why I'm a Fucking Asshole (many members from here) now has 11,711 posts. That is not many as to Carver Forum, but that is just one year. Those would be now on the mostly dead Carver Forum if Carver was as honest as guys like me and Mike. Not in a war with Carver Forum, just wanted a place one could post with freedom, so I made one. Nothing is altered or deleted there.
I am an asshole and admit that. I don't try to fool myself or others. Some others might not be on that level yet.

I believe that would be what they call an "epiphany".

A moment of startling clarity.


I doubt it though. :lol: :lol: :lol:

no guys,
OO had every right to call me out.
many years ago I remember seeing those commercials about depression and how it could make you do this or that, emotional and physical.....
I thought no way in hell can that be.
boy was I wrong.
I do have good days, but they can change at a drop of a hat to a feeling of utter darkness and despair then 4 hrs latter I start feeling better...
or it lasts days.....
I think Jimmy wrote a song about this.... #-o

Thorazine anyone.... :lol:

I believe this is pretty much straightened out, if our last email was followed through...
