My good friend Graham was the first one to graduate college and get a real job. He continued living with us and practicing our subsistence lifestyle and weird hours of waking and sleeping, but he was also bringing in actual money. He didn't indulge in too many crazy things beyond a new car, but he did come home with a massive sound system and TV one day. The speakers were so monstrous and clear sounding that he and our other roommate Rob burned a CD that was a looped soundtrack of the THX sound that used to be played at the beginning of movies. It would play over and over at top volume, showing the range and power of the speakers but never introducing a movie. Really, it was more entertaining than most of the movies we sat down to watch in that house.
