Sleeping with Atari Teenage Riot blasting was not smart in
high school, but I'm fine. I find that hearing speech in
super loud places is fucked, though. Have recovered from
recent Rainbow Disco Club.

We are IDM. Ears are important, doodz. That being said,
Cylob had ear problems prolly worse than all of us, and he
somehow got back to music in recent times.

"Ears are important, doodz"

I like how your last few posts have been ever so slightly
patronizing. ; )

Certain frequencies fuck up on cans. There's a track on Syro
I can't listen to on headphones without distortion happening
n my ear. It sucks.

I used to keep upgrading my headphones, until I realized it
was me, and mostly the left ear.

Years and years of live shows are partly responsible.

clean ears with johnson johnson ear buds. ( best quality i
think)
damp ones and dry. not to deep thou.

boil full kettle of water

place a large ceramic or stainless steal bowl on a towel or
mat to protect table ( not plastic)

pour very hot water into the large bowl.

stick head over bowl

put another towel (large) over your head to keep the steam
in

you are now inside your own head shaped steam room

turn your head side to side whilst head is in steam.
because it will get hot if you keep still.

not too long though in case you die. make sure no one
knocks you in the boiling water.

you can use essential oils too.

oh yeah essential oils, my gf has some perhaps that will
help, ive never had a problem with ear wax, i assume its
ageing, my brother was saying now he is in his mid 40s he
cant hear over 12,000 hz, luckily i dont think its that
vital unless your a bat

my dads freq range is down to about 7000 hz according to
quick sine sweep off laptop speakers... mine is pretty good
(13K+) but that might be because my ears 'completely full of
wax' according to a doc that took a look recently. it's not
poking out or anything; he said I should get them seen to
and maybe it will be like getting a new pair of ears

in my ear, it doesnt feel like it but you never know

One thing i noticed most definitively and it wasnt a placebo
effect was that my hearing, perception of sound and
enjoyment of music increased quite profoundly when i went
onto anti depressants, probably due to neuro transmitters in
the brain rather than the ears themselves

that's what puts me off getting it done - there's nothing
visible in my ears or reachable with long pinky fingernails
so i guess they'll have to still something in relatively
deep, and fuck that. they'll have to dope me up and wrap me
in a blanket like a kiddy.

oop, response to first one there... that's p interesting
(did you see that the inventors of MP3 basically disowned it
as being psychoacoustically shit, recently?)

yes best not mess around unless it becomes an issue, like
you go partially deaf

no do i'll have a read about that, i wish i understood the
science between psycho acoustics, I have to wonder if if he
is coming purely from a technical perspective rather than
someone who just listens to music, because it sounds
adequate to me as long as the bit rate is reasonable

aye, i mean, no one actually said it was a perfect format...
20 years from now it'll get fetishised or something.
think i will get me ears done

I have this weird thing where I want to have my sinus
passages cleaned, from my ear to my nose and through my
cheeks. I saw they can now put a camera in there as well to
watch the cleaning. Sounds really badass, and I feel like
I'd wash out all sorts of gunk that's in there since I was a
child. Like all those times you sneezed weird, maybe some
minute chunks of food or whatever are stuck somewhere in
between your nose and ears. So they put this water hose in
through your ear drum after cutting a hole, then they can go
in and spray the walls. It's like some once every few
decades sinus cleaning procedure, even though I only know of
it being done for infections and that type of thing. But I
just want to do it to feel all clean, and somehow I think it
would feel amazing.

When I used to get my ears flushed in elementary school due
to earwax buildup, it was some of the most pleasurable
times, in a non-sexual way. Like an ear massage.

Oh, man- just now I held my nose and pushed air in and out
of my Eustachian tubes whatevz, and did that several times.
That felt great! Like I'm scratching the inside of my ears.

yes it does feel great, my brother had his nose broken twice
and has suffered terribly from sinus problems and nasal
drips poor bugger.
I remember when he had is adenoids out, blood all up the
walls of the hospital ward

Its ok Freqy i was talking past tense, i share your concern
of the dubious nature of the psychological profession, its
half voodoo quackery like reading tea leaves

Some people, but definitely not everyone, have a healthier,
better life when on certain medication, including anti
depressants.

Of course pharmaceuticals are what I'd pretty much call
evil, and doctors and shrinks over prescribe, and are in
contact with reps from the pharmaceuticals.

Yet I don't think it's right to think they don't help
people, even if unfortanely they are prescribed and marketed
to people who don't need them.

I was advised twice to go on them, and stopped both times
because they just weren't working right. But I know a few
characters in my town who when not on their meds become self
destructive and paranoid. Their mind just doesn't fit into
our society and therefore they suffer a lot. Some meds help
those who need them.
