« on: August 19, 2012, 07:28:12 PM »
Having recently qualified with a degree in psychology from Harrington University,and seeing my beloved public suffering from the ailments of a tough economy not to mention a slightly stagnant forum,I thought I would start a little column offering advice on life matters,audio neurosis,depression,anxiety,new purchases advice etc,pretty much anything really....just think of me as a South African Oprah minus the incest and wealth....for this to work I can respond to questions via pm if your anonymity is important to you or those who are straight can just post right here and I will answer all questions as best and honestly as I can....no matter how small(death in the family,infidelity etc) or large(5yr old constantly walking past speaker destroying soundstage or wife forgetting to put your feelings and needs ahead of hers etc)...please share with me and our forum brothers and Judy and I will guarantee you'll feel better....now fire away.

Julius Malema stole my girlfriend. This morning i caught a glimpse of her at Jelly Tsotsi's side in a clip of him addressing the Lonmin hill folk. Now all I can think of is the two of them whooshing around in his CLK and... well...I need help with this Kassy..

Dear Kent

I come from Pretoria and I like neither rugby nor beer. Nor girls for that matter. What I like is BIG CAPACITORS. Am I normal?

Dear Kent,
I think of audio every 7 seconds for about 5 min. Do I need help?
Best regards,

Dear Kent,
Four months ago I requested a fellow forum member to find me a decent 12inch Tonearm for the SP10 he sold me.This he promised to do.The forum members name is Andre.(Mr Find it All)This he has failed to do.Do you think I should report him to SARS Fraud Investigation unit for tax evasion?

I trust you will give me trusted advice,

Klaus Knopf

PS I do have Andres' cell number.
For,when money or oiled hands determine the voting outcome,particularly in a matter of such monumental importance,then no conscience or oath finds expression.

Dear Mr Kassler

I've recently been nominated as a counselor in the trauma centre of a very well known institution for the sonically gifted.  Tell me, do you think I should do this under a pseudonym like "Mamma Kassler" or something more appropriate? If so, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Regards

So you are making a mockery of my qualifications Herr Knop,sadly my German only extends to the basic words "mein chatz,mein chatz"and I don't recall where I was exposed to this?If I was able to offer you an atp16 minus the physical arm,it was snapped off(someone could make you something truly exotic to complete it)would this act of kindness save me from being exposed to remen?

Judy hun,it would be an honour and I would be most pleased if you went with Mamma Liscious instead,I don't mean to sound like a chop but us Kassler's are quite protective of our surname having been tortured by the vile Knopf's of this world since the beginning of time.....i don't even own a gas stove,so neurotic am I.Have a splendid day doll.
