There is no better way to listen to music – binaural or regular, Ottmar Liebert or other – than on a good headphone like a Bose Triport (around-ear) headphones though there is a risk of getting deaf after prolonged loud listening. Though the Bose Triport is a very efficient headphone, the deafness is due to the user, ignorant of how to get deaf while seeking joy through music, pumping high decibel sound levels through the headphones to the user’s ears everyday for many days. However, there is hardly that deaf-risk if the listener is using a Dell Desktop’s headphone jack since Dell is skimpy on headphone output levels, possibly to save us from ourselves rather than a design blunder.
“Binaural recording is a method of recording sound that uses a special microphone arrangement and is intended for replay using headphones. Dummy head recording is a specific method of capturing the audio, generally using a bust that includes pinnae (outer ears). Because each person’s pinnae are unique, and because the filtering they impose on sound directionality is learned by each person from early childhood, the use of pinnae during recording that are not the same as the ultimate listener may lead to perceptual confusion.” ~ Wikipedia
“Ottmar Liebert (born 1959) is a German-born composer and guitarist, born to a Chinese-German father and a Hungarian mother. As a child, he spent most of his time traveling Europe and Asia with his family. Ottmar leads an ensemble called Luna Negra (“Black Moon”), which has gained popularity performing as a touring band and recording music albums in a “Nouveau Flamenco” style.” ~ Wikipedia
Christmas morning in St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago - 2009
This is my 0ne thousand words for Christmas in Trinidad and Tobago.
I don’t know if this year will be different for Santa but for many years he has been discriminating when giving gifts. For years, Santa has been giving rich children things like laptops, Wii and Playstation 3, but he gives the poor ones imitation designer tee-shirts and one extra slice of ham in their hops only in times of an economic boom. Many times Santa completely avoids poor neighborhoods citing crime and his subjective opinion of goodness.
Once again, this year, the North American Aerospace Command (NORAD) is tracking Santa from the time he leaves the North Pole. I am not sure why NORAD wants to track Santa, since I doubt it would influence his bias towards the rich. NORAD probably wants to be sure Santa doesn’t create an international incident by dropping toys for English-speaking children with worded instructions.
Dear Sirs and Madams of this Government,
I can’t begin to tell you how much I am looking forward to paying a higher property tax. I and hundreds of thousands of other citizens, known as the majority, are thrilled at the thought of giving more money to the Government to use in any way the Prime Minister sees fit, including private jet, big flag, useless conferences, house drapes, the Australians, the Chinese and Mr. Hart’s salary. I don’t expect you to use any of this newly discovered money on sick children since you have proven over and over you have a big, big Hart.
I know you instructed your scarcely literate police officers to guard Parliament with batons and guns to ensure unarmed protesters don’t embarrass the Government more than it is already embarrassed. I hope these unpatriotic citizens learnt their lesson and will now put their proverbial tails between their proverbial legs and watch the show on TV next time.
Since I was a boy, I, like the majority of citizens who were unable to take a bribe because none was ever offered or just too honest, would delightfully drool at the thought of paying higher taxes to the Government. I am still not sure if I get the most excitement from paying a higher existing tax or paying a new tax. That is such a toss up. I like paying taxes so much that I sometimes throw my money down a fast running drain during the flood season to simulate the same effect. I once threw a hundred dollar bill in a stagnant drain near my home and after a year it remained just where I left it except it turned green – that’s probably a sign of the future devaluation of our money – blue to green. I am also just as excited about the inevitable devaluation due to the expenditure on boats and drapes, as I am about the taxes. I only wish you could see how much my spine is tingling right now just thinking about it.
I thank you, my Government, for making my boyhood dream a reality, and though I might be poorer because of more and new taxes, I feel richer because I know whose pockets the taxes will go into.
Delightly and painfully yours,

Is Chubby not a well-known soft drink brand and its bottle shape also very well-known by children and adults all over Trinidad and Tobago? Is Tire Shine a soft drink intended for children? If not, then why is this no-name brand of Tire Shine also using a similar bottle to Chubby that even a bright child or literate adult might easily mistake for a Chubby Cream Soda? To make matters worse, there are no contact information or ingredients listed on the Tire Shine bottle so if a child accidentally drinks some Tire Shine the doctors would only be guessing how to treat the child. The bottler of this no-name brand of Tire Shine appears to operate as if they will never be discovered and held accountable.The sellers are even more culpable but just as safe.
From what I understand, you can get this Chubby-style Tire Shine from many automotive accessory stores in Trinidad, and it was probably bottled in Chubby bottles to help the Tire Shine bottlers maximize their profits. I doubt the Tire Shine bottlers really care if children are harmed by a businessman’s quest for wealth because getting wealthy in Trinidad and Tobago is priority number one. I have no idea if the OHS Act in Trinidad and Tobago covers household chemicals and food but Act or no Act, somebody needs a big stick across their back for doing this crap.
