groggy

My biggest worry today (which was yesterday) is finding cushions for my Grado Labs SR 80 headphones.  During my poker days I geeked out over headphones and purchased some open ear Grado Labs SR 80 and a set of Sennheiser HD580 cans.  Gotta have two sets for different music right?  Well, I thought that at the time . . . and I was right but I certainly would not do that today (they are expensive).

If you are looking for a GREAT pair of headphones for cheap?  Something to wear working out with great base check out the Sony MDRZX110AP ZX on Amazon.  Sweet deal for $20.  Stay away from Beats headphones.  Like Bose you are paying for the name and coolness factor.  Good sound but overpriced because they are hot. You can do much better at a lower price the Beats (and Bose for that matter).

Something a lot of people forget with headphones is that they need to have a wear in period. Just like stereo speakers.  Even ear buds need 100 hours to get to their max sound.  The cones are stiff and need to be massaged and gently used. Play them overnight quietly.

Oscars were a bomb on TV.  Down 16% and Tweets were down 47%.

Cottage Grove was all freaking out over a sex offender moving in. Good Grief. That is a known person, worry about the unknown ones!  WAIT!!!  WHO knew that a sex offender would move next door to . . . . an ARSONIST.  What a lovely neighborhood!  The kettle calling the pot black!! (or whatever that saying is).

We all know what is on tonight right?  Survivor Season 30.  I've applied a few times - sent my app and video in - didn't make the cut.  This year it's White Collar vs. Blue Collar vs. No Collar and I have heard its one of the best premiers ever in Survivor as we see how each "tribe" deals with adversity. I still love that show as a social experiment.

Not much to say - sort of brain dead today, I must have slept to well last night! I hate that!

Badgers - the excitement about last night was not the game but what happened AFTER the game.  Emergency landings with an engine out, firetrucks rescue vehicles, doors not shutting, GREAT night for Bucky.    

Milwaukee Bucks (most of you can check out now) - In baseball you have PECOTA  where a players career is matched up with other players at the same point and same stats to see who they most match.

I'm not sure if that have that in the NBA but the Bucks new point guard Michael Carter-Williams that they got in a big trade was Rookie Of The Year last year in the NBA but having a hard year this year.  One of the reason the Bucks were high on him is that his career is almost exactly matching his coach, Jason Kidd who went on to be pretty darn good.  And Kidd is really getting some exceptional play out of his super young team.

The Bucks were recently ranked as the 6th most exciting team in the NBA.  Michael Carter-Williams makes his Milwaukee debut tonight.

Nuff said
