Friday night (not every friday night!!) would leave work, maybe play BBall at the center, then go home, have a brew, and listen to music for hours. When it got to late, put on my Koss Pro 2 +2 quad headphones. Who does this today? Not a soul!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Went to your friends basement, and listen to music at his house. The love of music is gone. Unfortunately.
You're definitely revealing your age with those memories, but those were the days . . . 2-channel was king, "big-screen" TVs were 27" and "home theater" was your kids performing for the family during the holidays!
