Re: Seriously WTF?

And the lap around the VH track with Gary Cherone, C'mon. This is a dark time best forgotten. "Dark time" is an understatement. The WORST period of VH ever. I like both Dave and Sammy, which always makes me wonder if I'm gonna be burned to the stake or some shit because of it. [emoji23] Sent from m...

Re: Amazon Echo Buds - Totally wireless earphones

A right-out-of-the box review: There's a lot to like about these but that said I would call them a "v1.0" (first version) product. They sound very good, but with a few niggles. As with any earbud, the fit and seal will make or break the sound. Luckily mine fit pretty well, for sure better than a nu...

I'm still pissed at them for dropping Weatherscan. This kind of shit they pull doesn't surprise me anymore.

Re: Amazon Echo Buds - Totally wireless earphones

Head-Fi is one of my favorite haunts. I'm also active in the headphones community on Reddit. Learned a lot from them in my short time in this hobby. I'm still starting my search for my customs. So many options. Haven't even gotten the impressions done yet -- still searching for an audiologist out he...

That is such bullshit. I hope he sues their asses for wrongful termination. Employees aren't robots, no matter what upper management thinks.

Re: Amazon Echo Buds - Totally wireless earphones

You can pry my Etymotics and my KZ ZST's from my cold dead hands. :P Seriously though, I'm looking forward to trying these out. Might be a future birthday present to myself. So far, the initial response from most of the tech rags has been positive, but they all demoed them during the press event, so...

Re: WKBD screwed up... BAAAAD

Wow. What a bunch of losers. Getting wrecked over a decade old syndicated show. If you have that much of a boner over King of Queens, stream it. THIS. I can't think of a single person who actually likes King of Queens. And who really gives a rat's ass when it airs anyway? Isn't there more important...

Re: Comparing the weather radars

Seems like quite frequently I see a big delay in what the local tv weather radars are showing vs what is really happening. Tonight as the storm was moving through, I had the WDIV radar up. Seemed like the storm was about 5-10 miles still away on the radar when the rain started hitting. That by itse...

Re: AAA - can it still work in Detroit?

Could Wayne State turn in the license if, say, they don’t wish to operate it anymore? In that case, could the FCC then auction the frequency off as a commercial station to the highest bidder? They could, or hand it off to another non-com (hopefully not the Borg -- I mean, K-Love, or somebody simila...

Re: Detroit’s Broadcasting Hotties 2019

Going back to the original intent of this thread, there is only one Detroit Media Goddess, and she's not even on TV. Nobody holds a candle to Anne Erickson. Period. For TV, it's Priya Mann for me. Agreed on Anne. She's pretty dope, and knows her shit about the music she plays. And yeah, she's prett...

Re: Uncensored music on 94.5 WXKR

I absolutely hate it when commercial radio station butcher song lyrics to edit out curse words. The prior method (pre-Janet Jackson's titty) of bleeping out a small portion of the word was fine. Now, we get to endure weird sound effects or awkward alternate lyrics. So, in closing, I'd like to say: ...

Re: AAA - can it still work in Detroit?

No, SolarMax is correct -- the clause the UAW included in the sale to Wayne State is ironclad. They cannot sell it to a commercial operator, no matter what. I don't think they should sell it. Like I said earlier, I just wish they'd embrace the music programming they air, and go back to having it ful...
