“Strange things are afoot at the Cirlce-K.” – Ted, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. A relatable quote if you’ve ever been to a hi-fi trade show and tried to make sense of hundreds of rooms full of stereo equipment.

Fatigue is something you have to be mindful of at a show, like, well, T.H.E. Show. There’s a lot of listening rooms on multiple floors and as a reviewer you’re constantly hustling, so you need to be mindful to pace yourself, otherwise you’ll suffer the consequences of fatigue.

Deep Impact. Remember that movie? It came out in 1998 and I still get goosebumps thinking about Morgan Freeman (playing US President Tom Beck) delivering that line “Our missiles have failed. The comets are still headed for Earth, and there's nothing we can do to stop them.”
