Four Films Where The Main Character is Already Dead

INTRODUCTIONThis list will include some major spoilers. Fortunately, most of these things are old, so I shouldn’t worry about dishing out spoilers all that much. But you can find the movies and watch them online before reading this if you like. It is said that the film Carnival of Souls from 1962 is the originalContinue reading “Four Films Where The Main Character is Already Dead”

RIP Shure SRH440 Pro Studio Headphones

The year was 1992, and I had decided that I was in the market for a cassette 4-track multi-tracking recorder. So I went to West LA Music [RIP] and was hanging out in the Pro Audio department. A salesman in that department was helping Paula Abdul with her home studio. She bought the Yamaha MT120S.Continue reading “RIP Shure SRH440 Pro Studio Headphones”

Media From the Past Representing the Future, and Knight Rider 2000

INTRODUCTIONI was flipping through Netflix to see what was available to watch, when I noticed they had Knight Rider 2000. I’d not even heard of that before, so I watched it. Since this particular piece of media is THREE DECADES old, I’m not going to worry too much about avoiding spoilers. A GENERAL RUN-DOWNKnight RiderContinue reading “Media From the Past Representing the Future, and Knight Rider 2000”

Renewal of My Website

I’ve had my website, drumwild.com, since 1999. Over the years, it has served me well. In the early years, it got me gigs. I was asked to join the band Secret in late 1999 with no audition, because everything they needed to know and see was on the website. For a while, I used itContinue reading “Renewal of My Website”

51 Years Ago: 11-17-70 by Elton John

INTRODUCTIONToday I’ll be writing about one of my biggest influences with regard to music, Elton John. The live performance that he gave back in November 17 of 1970 has been an album that has stuck with me for the majority of my life. As is the case with most artists whose careers started before IContinue reading “51 Years Ago: 11-17-70 by Elton John”

The Phones Are Listening

INTRODUCTIONI’ve known about this for a very long time. For a while, it was a suspicion of mine. This is because they’d try to be discrete about how they delivered things to the phone based on what they’ve heard. From 2017-2019, I spent a good deal of time at home. But I was fortunate enoughContinue reading “The Phones Are Listening”

Commodore 64: Upgrade to Heatsinks

I’ve written about my Commodore 64 from 1984 before. It’s a machine that I got from someone who had belonged to CSUN [Commodore System User Network]. He maintained it very well and had lots of floppies and manuals. I’ve had this for at least 10 years. Over the past 10 years, I’ve done a numberContinue reading “Commodore 64: Upgrade to Heatsinks”

AT&T Can Stoop Low

I have written about AT&T before, specifically about problems in the past related to their horrific customer service and how abusive they had been to me. The last piece I wrote, linked above, focused on their very aggressive push to get me to sign up for their DirecTV product. This particular AT&T anecdote involves aContinue reading “AT&T Can Stoop Low”

Dating Websites Are Scammy

INTRODUCTIONThe other day I wrote about what I might put if I had a dating profile. The idea of meeting someone online is nothing new to me. I’ve met a fair number of women online, most of which were in a state of long-distance, so things didn’t work out. The most recent one divorced herContinue reading “Dating Websites Are Scammy”

AT&T is Filth

Anyone who has been reading the news knows that AT&T has been funcing One America News [OAN] Network. This is a corrupt Right-wing network that spreads lies about COVID and makes dangerous statements to move uneducated, angry Republican voters into action. This seems to be financed primarily through DirecTV, a subsidiary of AT&T. I currentlyContinue reading “AT&T is Filth”
