Don't Procrastinate For Petey's Sake

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Internet Access at Home

After procrastinating for months, I finally hooked up my Panasonic TVs and Blu-ray Players to the World Wide Internets. They gives me unlimited access to Amazon Video on Demand, weather forecasts and for my money, the best thing ever, Pandora Radio. I have been using Pandora for years, but only through my woefully inadequate computer speakers. Now I listen through my Definitive Technology tower speakers, which is much better.

After setting up some new stations, I learned that there are tons of bands that sound like Foghat and Molly Hatchet. It is like listening to one endless Southern Fried Rock K-tel album, without the pops. Even my parakeet Petey (yes that Petey, the stunt keet  from Dumb and Dumber and The Birds, but just an extra in that one) enjoys it. After  years of stunts though, Petey likes it loud due to severe hearing loss in both ears. I got the Lady Gaga Heartbeats ear buds for the little bugger.

So my suggestion to you is, if you have a TV that does connect the Internets, do not dilly dally like I did. Put on some Foghat and go for a slow ride.
