Nothing Lasts Forever

Holaaaaaaaaaa y’all! Why can’t anyone make anything that lasts anymore? I know us grumpy old men ask that question all the time, but this time I mean it. My clock radio has crapped out. All I get out of it is static. What’s really weird is that the radio part is turned off! On or Off all I get from it is static. It still keeps the correct time and the alarm still works, but that’s all. What really pisses me off is I’ve only had the thing THIRTY-EIGHT YEARS!

IKNOWRIGHT???!!! This is bullshit! What a timeless design too. That right there fits in with any d├ęcor. I got it as a Christmas present when I was in the fourth grade. I had Mrs. Cooper that year. *SHUDDER* Damn, that was a mean woman right there. She didn’t believe in tough love. She believed in hurtful and emotionally abusive love. She also believed in forcing the class to stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance each morning and stand and repeat a little prayer that she led us in right before lunch. Fun times y’all!

In fact, I had a very bad day when it comes to electronics today. As you probably know I have a new TV in the IWS Studio. Well, that baby is freaking awesome. I’m watching “Nature” on PBS in HD bitches!

Anyway, I had the brilliant idea of hooking up my old Roku 2 to this TV so I could watch episodes of Gilmore Girls and Gossip Girl while working on IWS Radio. Uh, I mean documentaries that will help expand my mind and world view. Yeah, that’s it.

Well, that is more complicated than I though. Turns out I got the wrong HMDI cable! Man that pisses me off. So, now I have to take it back to Walmart and get the right one. It’ll be a whole week before I get the new one! So unfair!

Why can’t I get the right one at Walmart? I can, I just refuse to. See, our Walmart put the expensive shit on the shelves and if you want the more economical brand of these things you have to order online and have it shipped to the store. They can do this because nobody else in town carries HDMI cables. The result is I had to order from Amazon (along with a couple of boxes of food safe gloves) and will have to wait a week for it to be delivered. What a life!

That's very unfortunate...especially in the cold, deadlights of winter. I wish you the best Jayman. Cheers!!

Did you get HDMI.202(b1a;801)-6z? You should have known that would never work.

Matt: Thank you for your concern. I'm sure I'll be okay eventually.

Mike: I have no idea. I got one with a big connector and one with a small connector and I need one with the big connector on both ends.

I had that exact clock radio when I was a kid.
