Low expectations

Sometimes I just have to say it. Which is why I created this blog years ago.

My plans have grown for this blog...since I watch so little actual TV these days it seemed more appropriate to include commentary on anything I consume on a screen.

Here are the screens currently in my house :

  • LG projector in the living room (105" projection TV/Roku/Chromecast and Uverse 300)
  • 42" LCD television in the bedroom (with OTA antenna, Roku/Chromecast)
  • 24" LED television in the bedroom (unplugged)
  • 22" Android tablet on the kitchen wall
  • 22" Acer LED monitor (attached to a Chromebox)
  • Kindle DX
  • Kindle (small one not the paperwhite)
  • Nexus 10
  • Nexus 7
  • Samsung Infuse 4G used as a music player
  • Galaxy S4 as my cell phone
Quite ridiculous really. I live in a 800 sq ft condo! But then again, I'm a single guy. :)

All that being said, don't expect alot here. I watch a lot of bad TV. My current list of favorite shows (watching online or DVR)
  • Dance Moms
  • Bring It
  • Kim of Queens
  • Masterchef
  • Hells Kitchen
  • Barefoot Contessa
  • Big Bang Theory
  • Family Guy/American Dad
  • Project Runway
  • Rachel Maddow Show
  • RuPaul's Drag Race
I LOVE the app Pocket Casts on Android! I use it to stream and sync playback with my favorite podcasts:
  • Windows Weekly
  • This Week in Tech
  • This Week in Google
  • Security Now
  • What's the T
I also recently finished reading the Martian by Andy Weir. Excellent book. I've decided I love reading using the Kindle app on my Nexus 10 the best, with my little Kindle in second place.

I learned from reading that book why I don't read much fiction. When I get sucked into the story I can't put the book down and read for hours at a time. Not good if you want to have a productive weekend!
