Today Begins Big Ass TeeVee Installation – Be Back Tuesday

Today I am starting down the path to crossing another milestone in my life. Is that mixing metaphors? meh.

By sometime next Tuesday I will be fully involved with a full blown media center:

  • Big Ass TeeVee (BATV) – 52 inch Sony with high definition
  • Dell computer with sooper-dooper video card dedicated to serving the BATV.
  • Surround sound
  • Infrared Repeater so my wireless keyboard, mouse and remote can shoot a signal around the corner
  • DirectTV (changing from Dish Network because they are groks and I got a sweet deal from DirectTV)
  • Cable – not new but configged differently to serve BATV
  • Tivo – not new (see above)

St. Todd deCubville is doing the installation.

It all starts tomorrow and I will be sneaking away to Twitter our progress @goinglikesixty. I am the designated beer hauler, that will give me enough time to tweet his activity and keep a beer count.

I think I have the blog set up to compile my tweets and make a post. OTOH, the whole thing could blow up like a Rodenator and bring down the entire neighborhood.

So today:

  • mow the yard (it’s nineteen inches high and can’t wait until next week)
  • get my haircut (it’s nineteen inches long and Nancy is driving me nuts)
  • get Miller Lite Beer in bottles
  • get ice
  • go to airport to pick up St. Todd deCubville and Amy
  • inventory

I hope this isn’t the end of a fine blog.

I do appreciate you readers so much.

But when I sit my Big Ass down in front of that Big Ass TeeVee and see Rachel Ray in HiDef, that may be nirvana.

Today Begins Big Ass TeeVee Installation – Be Back Tuesday — 6 Comments

  1. Oh Lord…have mercy on your soul. This could be the last time we hear from you. Have you got all your necessary papers in order? Sending Nancy my best…..

    • @Joy: absolutely, Nancy makes sure my DNR is constantly updated. She asks me quarterly to sign new docs.
      @Gretchen: I became a defacto widower when she got her BAEM (Big Ass Embroidery Machine) so there!

    • @Digital EDGE: Too late, but at least I did buy a Samsung and not a Sony. All I could remember was it started with S and wasn’t Sears. It is an LCD. I’ll take a look at Viewsat HD. Boxee sounds cool too.

  2. Also cancel Dish Network but keep the dish and get a Viewsat HD box and enjoy your programing for free! (you didn’t hear that from me LOL)
