He Goes To Eleven (162/365)

Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.

Today is MB’s eleventh birthday.  We asked him what he wanted and he asked for the Xbox 360® Wireless N Networking Adapter.  So yesterday we ventured out to Target and purchased said adapter as well as a card with 1600 Xbox Live points.  Here he is with his headset playing a game and talking with his cousin Michael (via the headset) who also happens to have Xbox Live.  He is one happy eleven year old boy.

Anything with a reference to Spinal Tap must be good.
