  • Doofus Music

    For those of you who know that my favorite group is called Girlyman, you won’t be surprised to hear that I don’t judge a group by their name. 😉 In this post (ironically about Girlyman!) near the bottom, I mentioned that I had lunch with a good friend who I used to work […]

  • A Semi-Vacation

    As is now our annual custom, immediately after enjoying a wonderful Superbowl party with our friends in Richmond, we headed out early this morning on the long drive to Florida, to visit my folks. We drove for 10.25 hours today and are now in Daytona Beach, immediately across the street from the speedway. […]

  • Audio Video Cable Prices

    In this post, I linked to a great cable that solved my PC -> TV problem. That cable was purchased from svideo.com. The link in that article was to the exact cable I purchased, which cost me $24.95, including free parcel post shipping. It works perfectly. Here is another link on their site […]

  • Acoustic Guitar Update

    This is another long post, so bail now, while you can, or grab a cup of coffee (to keep you awake). 😉 Actually, the post itself isn’t insanely long, but if you watch each of the videos that I’ve linked it, the entire trip will take a while… I’ve gone on and on […]

  • My iPod Nano Teaches Me New Tricks

    Mostly, I listen to music on my iPod. On occasion, I have listened to an audio book or two, while exercising. One thing I have never done is watch a video. My old iPod 30GB probably could do it as well (it certainly could display photos), but I never even tried (not even […]

  • No Longer a Digital Download Virgin

    In this post, which I just published a few minutes ago, I mention that I just purchased Acoustic Sketches by Phil Keaggy. In that post I said that I would write separately about how/where I purchased that “CD”. This is that tale… I have purposely avoided the seduction of purchasing music for downloading […]

  • Experimenting with Bit Rates in Ripping CDs

    In this post, I discussed my new Grado headphones. In that post, as well as this one, I mentioned that I am most definitely not an audiophile. The new Grados were so far superior to the crappy ear buds included with the iPods that I started to question my choice of ripping all […]

  • New iPods = New Joy + New Headaches

    I have a good friend (let’s call him Ed, because that’s his real first name) who is perhaps the worlds best gift giver. I am embarrassed to admit how many amazing gifts he has given me over the years. I have reciprocated on rare occasion, and I’m sure that while my gifts pleased […]

  • Sometimes technology lets you down 🙁

    I forced myself to take my long walk today. As usual, I am extremely glad that I did, but for one thing. I walk with an iPod, with a Logitech Bluetooth headset. For the first leg of my walk, I was listening to Wicked (I know, huge surprise) 😉 but in the middle […]
