Re: New ANGEL album, Risen (2019)

I hope you have since checked out UFO. Their 70s stuff, up to and including the live Strangers in the Night, are top notch.

Re: Millions of Californians Will Go Dark in Biggest Fire Outage Yet

This seems like Act of God stuff to me. Don't see why power company should be liable. If a transformer blows during earthquake and starts a fire the power company is liable? Is the argument that...

Re: What TV Show was your first TV Obsession ?

Everybody did that. Part 1 of Batman was also Wed at 6:30. I just sat on the floor right in front of tv constantly switching back and forth. It's one of those baby boomer things like "running home...

Re: How important to you is picture quality when watching a movie at home?

Since Shout is licensing from Paramount now, speculation is that Warriors could end up being a Shout SE with original version. Wouldn't be 4K though.

Re: Studios Releasing DVD But No Blu-ray?

Re: Studios Releasing DVD But No Blu-ray?

There are a lot of 16x9 tvs out there that are only 720p. Some of the cheap brands still make them and brands like Samsung were still making them in 2017. Mostly less than 40" sizes. Cable still...

Re: Knowing music/musicians from before your time

I have two sisters born 1945 and 1951. I came along in 1958. As a little kid in the 60s the local top 40 station was on all the time. My sisters had tons of 45s and several albums. American...

Re: What do you call a film that isn't a documentary? Whats the opposite?

I believe a narrative relates events while with a documentary the viewer witnesses the actual event either through footage or photographs. A narrative re-creates the events, told second hand.. Okay,...

Re: DirecTV -- News and Updates

Don't know if still true, cable was required by law to carry all broadcast channels. Only changes I've seen is that WGN and TBS used to be in the basic package (2-13) and are now in a different tier,...

Re: DirecTV -- News and Updates

I've had Comcast nonstop since 1984 and not once has there been any dispute or threat of losing channels. Broadcast and cable viewers see the scrolls but they're not directed at us so we just laugh...

Re: School Me On Pensions

I worked for a company that went belly up. Everybody was cashed out receiving a check for value of 401K. No penalty. Received a W-2 for the amount and it was taxed as regular wages.

Re: Do you take anything to help you sleep?

Milk along with some kind of "got milk" food. Cookies, cake, pie, etc. Ice cream does the trick too. Nothing works better than pizza. Must be the hot cheese. Problem I have is that I fall asleep like...
