I, sadly, no longer own a pair, thanks to a crackhead at a venue who sprinted off with them. I guess he thought he could force them to fit somehow?
    I've always wondered about this, how do you go about getting fitted earplugs and how much does it cost?

    I might be a little late to this party, but this is one of the more douchey statements I've read in a while.

    Are we in middle school? So it's "cool" to lose your hearing? You dumb fuck.

    Lol. I meant the whole "ear plugs don't look cool" or "you're a pussy if it's too loud" attitude.

    I dunno bryan. I read headstruck's posts and it reminds me of delta. I can see why pilgrim would want to get in his face.

    Yeah, but it happens at least once a day, and it's not like Jack/bug fights that were at least entertaining at points. It's the same thing every time.

    hey guys. sorry for blowing up at you this morning, headstruck. I still stick by my opinions relating to earplugs, but getting personal wasn't necessary. I just wasn't in any kind of a shit-taking mood this morning. I've been trying to get the new site live, and the hippies I'm working for are keeping everything open source, which is kind of nice, but it makes more work for me in terms of making stuff not look cheap. anyways, yeah. just google "ultimate" ears. they're $300 once you've paid for an audiologist appointment and shipping, but their plugs are THE best. also, you canuse your cast even years later to order a set of ultimate ears in-ear monitors. the UE11s are $1400, but it's like having a touring line array inside your fucking ear. top notch shit.

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    wait, of course you didn't read it. you're an idiot. soon to be a deaf idiot. I didn't even say I wore plugs at concerts ONCE. honestly, you fucking idiotic people... how hard is it to read what you're allegedly responding to? you are what's wrong with humanity: unabridged, unabashed ignorance and laziness. you are responsible for 9/11.
    Did this toolshed just tell someone he was responsible for 9/11 because of earplugs? Can this possibly be the most ignorant post in the history of this board?

    I only used earplugs for MBV, but I took them out, the white noise solo during YMMR was crazy loud, loved every second of it...

    I never really used earplugs until Coach this year, and now cannot go without them. Mainly because it feeds me the music while keeping out chatter from people around me.
