Time Flies

Holy crap it has been a long time! I feel like a genie who just got out of a rusted lamp except with zero powers. It is unbelievable how it has been almost 4 years since I last posted here. Permanent Waves is still running in cruise control and there are still a few loyal…


The Distraction Continues…

Hi all,

I recently added several new tracks. Of course, the main theme of “Back To The Future”! How could an online soundtrack radio station not have this classic from day one? And I have been operating for 12 years… Hah! Operating. Anyway, wow… 12 years have passed already. Can you believe it? I cannot. You know, every now and then I take several minutes out of my life to think about where all the time has gone. Remembering movies I saw in my childhood is one example. Starting a radio station because I was bored the first couple of years of college.


Precious Distraction

With no station updates in more than 4 months and few e-mail replies here and there I’m sure most of you out there have been rioting and going on hunger strikes, wondering where the hell I have been.

The fact of the matter is a great life event has occurred—This past May my wife and I had a beautiful baby daughter. 🙂 Her name is “Layan”, which means gentleness or softness. She’s 4 months already, laughing, exploring and growing her own personality. The delay in this mini announcement kind of explains the distraction part…


Taking 5 To Reminisce

It was one beautiful summer day in 1992. The skies were blue, the grass was green and the air was purer than ever. The birds were chirping and people were enjoying the outdoors with their friends and families. Of course, I was inside glued to the TV screen playing Sega Genesis.


Thanks, Dish Network… Sort Of

Several months ago, I posted my experience with signing up with AT&T’s U-Verse TV service and then canceling it a few days later. It generated several comments from curious minds as well as curious victims. I thought I’d add how I settled with Dish Network… for now.

Dish Network was attractive for 2 reasons: price and programming.

The important feature to investigate was the picture quality, so I ordered the TurboHD Silver package along with the ViP722 receiver, which supports two completely separate outputs for two rooms; one HD and one Standard Definition (SD). I didn’t care at all for the SD output, but I did care about the extra hard drive storage, which would allow me to record up to 55 hours of HD programming. Any extra processing power, if any, was a bonus.


It’s Nice…

I’m already caught up with Lost and I’m awaiting the final season in great anticipation. However, my wife, Linda, is still catching up on the story on DVD, so every once in a while I sit with her and watch, and with a small smile I remember the good old episodes and maybe notice a…


U-Verse Must Die

Once upon a time, I was a longtime and loyal subscriber of Time Warner Cable (TWC) digital cable Television (TV) and Internet. Then one day I got married and I had to move into a new apartment. Immediately preferring convenience over quality, value and some time to research what else is out there, I stuck…


I’m back…

Hi everyone, I’m back. 🙂 It’s been over a year since I have touched my web site. Life has become so busy for me that not only was I drowning in full-time work and some self-learning, but I met a very nice and beautiful girl as well… and now you are looking at an engaged…
