Day Five Without TV

September 16th, 2011 Posted in Uncategorized

My editor wanted a little more of me in my book about singing, so I’ve been going back and working in little bits and pieces of my life. Yesterday I managed to work in something about pigeons. We’ll see if they make the final cut, but at the moment I’m happy that pigeons might be in my book about singing.

Time Warner is supposed to be here today between 2 and 5. We shall see what happens!

The city was a beautiful orange last night at 7. This is looking up 7th Avenue.

    That is a great photo. It makes me just LONG to travel to NYC again.
    Good luck with the book (I for one can’t wait to see it published). I hope the pigeon bit stays in. Tell your editor your readers are clamoring for it.

    Verison is more expensive and from what I hear, provides slower internet.

    Why not Direct TV or another satellite (sp?) carrier?

    Does your landlord pay for your cable?

    Might this be storm dammage?

    I think it’s funny that you sent them a picture and they told you they had to send a supervisor to check it out. Like you would dummy up a photo just to waste their time.

    Kafka’s Castle comes to mind.

    Sorry that you’re deprived of your favorite entertainment.

    I can only speak from my own experience, but we switched from Comcast to Verizon (in SoMD outside DC) for Internet and have been very satisfied. We went from regular outages on weekends with CC to none with FiOS, and the speed is very good. YMMV, since I think a lot depends on the franchisee running the local service, and for most of these big companies customer service is generally average at best across the board.

    DirecTV is generally solid, I’d go back to them if FiOS TV wasn’t satisfactory.

    We haven’t had TWC in years, but in SoCal when we lived there they were pretty underwhelming, also.

    Verizon doesn’t offer the highest speeds in my neighborhood/building yet, so they are for the future. But they offer a great tv/cable/phone deal for the areas they cover.

    I’m looking into google tv and other solutions like it. It looks like I can buy my own box and get my tv from various streaming services like Netflix and Hulu.

    Chris, the landlord doesn’t pay for it. Also, the cable always look like that.

    CR: Thank you!!! Now, in addition to the pigeon story, I’ve got the story of the bat I tried to rescue. That one didn’t end as well.
