Finially…

    Sorry about not posting for a while, nothing came to mind! Well, nothing worth writing about… I put the final component into my preamp kit I’m building. Yeah, I started it a long time ago, at least 6 months, probably closer to 8… Anyway, got all the stuff in it, now I just have …

Damn weather forcasts….

    So they said that we’d have 1 to 3 inches of snow, sleet, and freezing rain on sunday starting in the afternoon and continuing through the night. I really didn’t feel like driving through that mess, so I called mom and told her that I wasn’t coming down. Never mind that they had changed …

Holy bat hearing!!!

    The dog was being a little wierder than usual before our walk. I took her out early just to calm her down. When we got back, I went downstairs to listen to some music, my amps had been left on to warm up. This is a standard thing with tube amps, they change (for …

Some good economics…

    I realize that some of what I write about economics may not make a lot of sense to some of you. There are certain assumptions made that don’t necessairly jibe with common sense. I thought I’d offer some reading material to the people who want to see how my mind works… I’ll spare you …

More social security thoughts…

    My friend Randy and I have been having some interesting back and forth about my zeal for privatization of social security. He sent me some links that talk about social security not being in trouble, in fact it is (according to them) rolling in dough and getting richer. In 50 years time they estimate …

James Brown revisited

    I needed some new music for my drive down to dad’s so I made some cds. One of them is a James Brown mix, and OMG is it amazing. I think it’s criminal how little JB we hear. He was THE black sound all through the 60’s and still has an amazing influence today. …

My birthday…

    I actually had a very nice birthday. This is an exceedingly rare occurence, most of them I end up spending alone due to the fact that I’m not attached to someone. I went down to dad and Butler’s place the day before and had a nice time. Had good food, even saw my brother! …

Anyone want a blue iPod mini?

    I got a free iPod mini! It’s from offercentric, you can look them up on google… It really didn’t cost me anything, I tried out three different services and cancelled them. It did take them about 5 months to send it to me, but i can’t really compain… I have other free things going …

Birthday plans

    Looks like I’ll be down at dad’s place on the 13th and drive back up to NOVA on the 14th. I’m hoping to avoid the typical pathetic Isaac birthday this year, but we’ll see. My cousin Beth informs me that it is vagina week at Cornell. There are T-shirts, candies, etc celebrating the occaision. …
