More Various Music Stuffs

No particular order. What am I doing here lately? I suppose doing something that isn't done any more.. presenting music videos... an art lost, both music and video.

Huey Lewis and the News

The first thing I started listening to was Huey Lewis. I could still hear decently well then. It was easy to listen to, and it stuck in my ears. I could make out the lyrics... so I listened to it a lot. I got made fun of for listening to this stuff, but it just worked for me then. I could HEAR it. Biggest thing of the 80's was Huey Lewis and the News, really. But I grew up, and out of anything else they did after 1991. Do You Believe in Love?…Read more …

Van Halen

Why? Because it was the best... I'm not gonna pick between Van Roth and Van Hagar. It's all Van Halen, and it's all mostly good. Here's a few good ones... reminds me of being 14 years old, banging out downloads, punter protocol, and bad homemade pizza at 3am till sun rise...

Devo

Always worked for me. The sound is simple, perverse, and complex. Saw them in concert last year, and it was just awesome... even on one ear. Delightfully weird and twisted.

Kindle Fire – Review

I'm lucky enough to have gotten a Kindle Fire right off the bat. Here's a few initial thoughts: 1. This is not replacement or even legit competitor to the iPad or other Android tablets (Samsung Galaxy, Toshiba Thrive, Motorola Xoom, etc). I really like that when I ordered it, the settings were input into the device, so it was automatically tied to my Amazon account. This meant that it instantly populated the Kindle Fire with books I had checked out for Kindle! However, this "convenience" makes gift giving for the Fire a bit…Read more …

Still

I still feel myself suffering this "impending" burn out feel, and I do not like it. I am going through one of the roughest installs I've ever had... and it seems like even when I FINISH it, it's still not right. I know installs aren't always clean and easy, but this one is like "Murphy's Law of Installations". So, the crux of it: Upgrading OPACs from Windows XP to Windows 7. New workstations replacing 8 workhorse OPACs that were approaching 5 years old, and all exhibiting various states of thermal failure. 1 has…Read more …

Deep, possibly crazy, likely insane idea…

Today is election day, as it were. Here in my local election, there was no real issue at question. The mayor of the city. Some council men, and school board. I was in with 5 minutes to spare, and my # is mid 200's in a city of over 80,000 people. I'm presented with a ballot 2 minutes after I walk in, and I'm presented with a slate of... who the hell are these people? I knew nothing about most of these people. I have no idea which candidate is Democrat, which is…Read more …

Nearly there

Having a real bad stretch... Last week was not enjoyable. Last week was 2 years since my mom passed. I had a really hard time that day. Everything went to shit at work, and I just started to break down. I felt completely over whelmed. I went into the back and cried for about 15 minutes. However, the "problem" was solved (mostly) on Thursday, or so it seems. Except now I'm dealing with more of the same... Windows XP and Windows 7 do NOT play well together, especially when it comes to security…Read more …
