Getting TiVo/DVR

Well, seeing that I enjoy sitting down and watching some tube, makes sense that I should buy TiVo/DVR device. It's annoying to spend an hour watching a show that is only 30 mins sans commercials. Think of the time saved by getting rid of commercials!

Sadly, however, how much "quality" TV is available? A Look fav, The O.C. just ended its run forever. Grey's Anatomy is getting boring. Smallville is putting out repeats. The White Rapper Show (yes I'm a watcher) is almost done... Sigh. That leaves me with the endless Real Worlds/Challenges and other MTV nonsense.

So while TiVo is definitely something I'd think about getting, for now I'll put it on hold till more quality time-wasting TV comes on air. I've decided to start reading more and here's what I just ordered on Amazon:
  • The Tipping Point - Malcolm Gladwell

  • Freakonomics - Steven Levitt

  • When Genius Failed: The Rise & Fall of LTCM - Roger Lowenstein

Gotta start getting myself educated again. I know those books have been out a while, so I figure'd now is as good a time as ever to take a stab at em. Will let you know what I think. Till next time...

One Love,

Porsche 911 Turbo

Beautiful, simply beautiful. If I had the dollars to drop, this little dandy would be high on the list. MSRP of 123-126K, such beauty does cost a pretty penny.

So what do you get for this little (0r big) status symbol? 480 horses w/ a top track speed of 192.6 mph. All while going 0-60 in 3.4-3.7 seconds. Does it make sense for living in the burbs of NJ or the streets of NY? Probably not. You'd hardly be able to open it up without gettin' in trouble with the fuzz. But if you're a baller. This ride is definitely sweet.

One Love,
