lol - the AKG 414 needs a car that has more than 20 varieties that are all very similar in name and that you can't ever remember what the differences are without referring to a chart

I was going to write "SM57 - Honda Accord... Nothing bling-y but won't let you down" but the Volkswagen or Jeep makes more sense!

Royer - Lexus

Let's match them to sports teams or stars.

Or maybe movie stars... or how about household objects.

I've got one, let's match them to the cards of the Tarot Deck...

The new Blue Reactor looks like it could be the inspiration for some custom chopper on orange county cycles

yeah, lets do a game where everyone has to say their favourite colour, and the next person has to say what mic preamp they should buy, based on that. Gearslutz is too weird sometimes..

Oh, no, wait! I have a better one! Let's compare mics to tropical fish, and preamps to famous military battles. I'll give you the fish and the battle, and you tell me what mic and preamp I'm thinking of.

Silver Arowana, and the Battle of Vlaardingen.

Ooh this is fun!

Lets match geographic curiosities to frozen vegetables or power tools. I'll start:

Mariana Trench= Green Giant Baby peas
Niagara Escarpment= Milwaukee Sawzall
San Andreas Fault= Birdseye corn
