How to UPGRADE, the CarverFest way !!!!

I do not allow anybody to touch it unless I know what kind of background in audio they have. That includes the volume knob, power buttons or anything else for that matter. If I ever catch anybody touching the rig without my permission? I would fear for their life, regardless of the reason.

(( NOTICE )) It's time to get this ball rolling.
I want to make these services known and available to all...
For anyone that desperately wants, or needs to upgrade their audio equipment, but has a wife or girlfriend that has "other plans" for what extra cash you may or may not have.
I want to make my services available to you.

Tom has wanted to "upgrade" his speakers for quite a while now. Unfortunately, he has had his own financial problems over the last year: Business was slow, Wife's hours cut back, New born son etc... so of course, a massive $8,000 upgrade to his speaker system was out of the question (according to the wife)
What wife or girlfriend could possibly say no to you once your prized equipment was "accidentally" destroyed buy someone else ??
If you can put on a good enough act, get mad... tear up a little... stand in the corner wanting to be left alone... you are GOLDEN.

Let me take what ever piece of equipment needs to be "upgraded" for a little stroll... Once she sees it, and the look on your face, she will be begging to help you go shopping for that NEW magic item to make all your pain go away. She will let you get away with buying just about anything after she sees what I will do to your "Prized Possessions"
And if you have Home Owners Insurance, we can make sure you hit the JackPot with "Eddie's Quick Cam Service". He will be standing in just the right spot, ready to snap the "Money Shot" that you can send into your insurance company to maximize your "Upgrade" returns.

Now... If you are serious about doing this, you MUST practice that "WTF" face !! It may take a few days to a week in front of a mirror to get it just right.
If you look at the image below, you can see a perfect example of one of Eddie's "Money Shots"
Look how Tom has PERFECTED the "WTF" face. How could any insurance company argue its authenticity??

My Fee is $1,500 per unit. I will guarantee to sustain some type of major injury to add to the authenticity, just in case your insurance company comes knocking.

Feel free to visit our new website: http://www.BreakYourOldShit.com and send is some photos of the units you are ready to upgrade.

I am so sorry to admit laughing as I looked at the pics! 8-[

I have a few questions...
1) What kind of speakers were they?
2) how badly was the person that fell hurt?
3) did all turn out well in the end?

I have never met anyone here from the forum but have had dealings with a few
and have begun to see this place as a family of sorts. I just hope everyone is ok
and all is well in the end.


I will need to be there next year, but nobody will be allowed within 10 feet of my 600x2 [-X :D

I am glad Toymaker is ok... That is a bad ending to a great pair of speakers.

I am happy all turned out well in the end, but curious if Tom was asked to help
carry the Silver Sevens before or after this happened? 8-[ :shock:

Actually, Tom and Jesse IIRC did a fine job of hiding Jerrys' newly autographed 9T's. However no damage was incurred during the process. :D

You should have seen the look on Tom's face, while I was laughing my ass off right after it happened...
I was looking at Eddie's camera, and Tom was sitting in the corner crying :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hey, when I saw the photo, I laughed my ass off. When I saw the closeup of my face? I about peed in my pants!

It's all good. Your services may be rendered in the future.....
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
