The Dangers of Buying a Flat Screen TV That’s Too Small – Expensive $2000-Something Hitachi Already AbandonedTuesday, September 3rd, 2013
42 inches and 1080i? Was that a good combo back in 2007?
I think not.
My 2011-era 70-incher* from Costco cost less and is much better, obvs. (It will go the distance, it will last for decades, IMO)

Of course, things such as TVs always get better, but this extremely heavy, extremely thick plasma model for almost $3000 was simply too much, too soon. And now it’s busted but it became obsolete before then.
*Never hooked up to cable. Cable is for suckers. Oh, you have cable? You’re a sucker, sorry, tough love.
When You Put Your Obsolete TV Out on the Sidewalk, You Shouldn’t Tell People that it’s FREE!!! – Or IT WORKS!!!!!Wednesday, January 30th, 2013
The reason is that your old analog CRT TV now has a negative value.
Yes, I know you paid “good money” for it, but that was then and this is now.
These days it’s worth less than zero.
That’s why you put it out on the sidewalks of the Western Addition PJ’s, right?
So if you want to tell tout le monde that your obsolete device still functions, don’t use any exclamation points.

That is all.
Oh, and where’s the remote?
Know Your UCSF Doctors: Hey Look, It’s Dr. Pam Ling, the Med Student from MTV’s “The Real World San Francisco” in 1994Thursday, September 6th, 2012
You’re too young to remember the era before the Internet, but back in the day, MTV was all we had.* So it was a BFD when the MTV came to town to stage a reality show back in 1994.
Pamela Ling was one of the characters. She played a medical student, which wasn’t hard, because, you know, she was a med student at the time.
Anyway, she became a doctor at UCSF and that where she labors some 18 years later.
Oh, and there was Puck, who pretended to be a bike messenger.
Man, some real bike messengers didn’t like him. That’s what I recall.
*Well, not me. Cable’s for suckers, these days and back in the day. I think my friend would videotape this show and then we’d watch it off of the VHS.
