Yesterday I went to the Trader Joe’s in Princeton to find that they now carry Three Buck Chuck! This means I can stay in an intoxicated stupor more often since I don’t have to drive all the way to Westfield, NJ to get my fix of cheap vino.
The wind blew so hard yesterday that there were areas that lost electricity! Fortunately, the electricity in my home stayed on.
Did you watch last night’s Saturday Night Live with Betty White? What a hoot! I watched almost the entire show and that rarely happens! I even sat through the JZ performance. By the way, what in the world was that?!? Do people really find him entertaining? How in the world did he get his start? When he was a little boy did his parents encourage him to pace around ranting incoherently? What possessed him to think he had the talent to record albums? And even more so, who signed him? I really want to take these people by the hand and sit them in front of my record player and have them listen to some good music because clearly they have never been exposed to melody, harmony, rhythm, dynamics or any type of pleasant sound, if they think this JZ is compelling.
Speaking of music, Rhapsody split off from Real Networks which makes me very happy. I never liked Real Networks because back in the 90’s their RealPlayer annoyed the hell out of me. Not only did Rhapody split from Real Networks, they are now allowing their users to access their music database from our smart phones! This means I can queue up and listen to The Neanderthals, Los Straitjackets, Katie Melua, Serge Gainsbourg, etc.. on my HTC Hero’s tiny tinny speaker.
As you may know, for years I have been seeking an affordable way to stream music throughout my house. I was beginning to think my best bet was to have Internet radios set up in the different rooms. But now I am thinking I just need speakers and I can use my Hero as the Internet Radio. The problem that then presents itself is that the Hero’s battery is quickly exhausted and so I would need to purchase additional power cords or I would need to move the power cord with the Hero… it always get complicated.
