On these days when I switch to midnight shift I find myself with a lot of time to kill. There is not much I can do. I can’t talk to anyone they are sleeping. I can’t go to the comic book store because it has this thing about not being open at 4 in the morning. So I find my self re-sorting or reading my comics, or finding random shit on the Internet.
Radio sucks. I have been sitting at work with the radio on and I have noticed some things that are super annoying.
I am not talking about the ads which are a necessity of keeping the station going. No, my problem is with the fact that they claim to be “The home of rock” and then the proceed to play the same theory of a grace back clone songs over and over. Like the I enjoy some of the songs but its like when you say a word over and over until it loses its meaning and becomes as useless and scary as the greeters at Wal-Mart.
Other than the simple fact that all the radio station seem to all use the same CD with the same 12 songs I really have nothing else I dislike about it. And I understand its a quick serve medium where they cater mainly to people driving for 10 minutes but really don’t call it workplace radio if i cannot listen to it for more than an hour without hearing the same song.
A special note for Sirius\XM:
Lighten up on the Lady Gaga. PLEASE! or I will come for you.
Has anyone else ever looked at the word “Unite” and thought it said “Untie”?
Maybe I’m alone on this one.
If you live in Saskatoon and are looking to pickup an affordable computer that has what you need here are some of the ones I have found in my travels.
The best way to pick any computer is to pick one that will suit what you need. Buying something that has too much for you is a waste of money and you will feel poorer the next day. Buying something cheap is a terrible idea, because with computers you do get what you pay for. So please look into the hardware, and read reviews about them. Then when you do finally get a computer treat it nice, it does a lot for you and trips to techs are costly.
