and at the risk of sounding like a hypochondriac, I have a slight obsession with healthy eating and avoiding mainstream/processed foods, etc

Perazzi shotguns, vacuum tube audio gear (a lot like straight razor/fountain pen lunatics) and old wooden sailboats.

The vacuum tubes are amazing. I used to drive the tweeters in a 1981 380SE with a pair of custom made tube amps. They were always breaking, I presume from being in the car. When they worked, they sounded amazing.

The only thing I change when playing the early 80's American Hardcore/Speed Metal is the turntable in my system. I use a Sumiko Project table as opposed to my usual VPI Scoutmaster setup. Mostly its because I don't want to play my old punk albums on a $1500 needle! I'll try to take a pic this weekend.
