    Looks like I found a tempered glass screen protector for my Sony SW3 on eBay. If this works well, I'll be so excited. Now if only I could get the metal strap for under $100...

    On the weekend I was listening to a radio station online and it was playing 'classic rock' only to find out it was from the 80s&90s... Just to make me feel old... Now I have no issue being at that age where the music I listened to is now considered 'classic' but I did have a hard time believing Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun & Ugly Kid Joe - Everything About You were classic hits...

    Two songs that epitomised how bad the 90s really were... Music wise.

    I've also come to the conclusion there really isn't great rock anymore, which is a pity. I'm even having difficulty with good alternative rock. Sad really.

    I'm streaming a bunch of albums by Rick Wakeman. Most likely, those albums would've only been played on free-form radio, even in the 70s.

    I couldn't agree more. It seems to me that every band that call themselves a rock band is more of a pop rock actually.
    Though, rock is kinda dead for now, even Gene Simmons said that, I think metal is doing pretty fine. We still have Rammstein, Slipknot and Disturbed is getting better and better.

    Ah, another technical neo-classical fusion band kind of like Dream Theatre or Symphony X. Good stuff!

    I'm sorry to say I know exactly what you mean! I've always said they "ran out" of music in the 80's. Everything that was ever good was recorded between the 50's and the 80's. Everything after that, is an already used regurgitated remix of a song that has already been written.. especially when we're talking about pop/rock songs you hear on the radio that consist no more than three chords. Don't even get me started about this rap or hip-hop stuff (notice I didn't say music?) that steals music and/or chord progressions from OUR era.

    On the other hand though, I will say that all of that really only applies to mainstream radio and/or popular music (even "alternative") because great modern classical and/or technical music is still being written these days.

    Well, try to tell that to everyone in my school, or tow, or country, or even god damn Balkan. I've already told you folks about 'turbo-folk', now that very name is sarcastic as much as it can get. They mixed folk, pop, rock, hip hop and rapping in it, count in total absence of music ('cause all you hear are few beats), consider that neither one of these performers can really sing well, now tell me, with that equation, dou you think it can sound good? Well, let me blow your surprise, it can't. It just can't and isn't. But yet everyone is listening to it, while I, a peaceful guy who listens to old rock and metal am being labeled as satanist and what not.

    Baseball is a very interesting sport. I get the slow paced Knock against it, and MLB has done some stuff to make the games overall slower (except for when the Boston Red Sox play the Yankees). Funny enough one of the first few games I watched when I was trying to understand the sport was a perfect game in 1999. It was after understood the rarity of it I was like "man, that was cool - wish I had taped it..."

    No baseball game here today. Cleveland Indians-Boston Red Sox postponed on Opening Day; game rescheduled for Tuesday afternoon | cleveland.com

    I said I was going to have a Sahib moment, but I decided not to. First thing - I was dead tired, I was barely walking, and second thing is, well, things that happened on that trip weren't that special.
    We went to an old town to visit a citadel from Ottoman Empire, was kinda interesting. The most intriguing part was the dungeon, it was literally a few metres of space surrounded by walls, i don't know how one could survive a few days in there. After that few friends and I went to hookah bar, as usual. I talked that cure girl into smoking it for the first time, it was kinda fun to watch her cough
    Next we went to nearby mountain. Walked to the highest point, had a coffe/tea, got back to the bus,got back to the home town.
    Next she invited me to go out with her and a couple of her friends, but, as I already said, I was barely walking so I went straight home.

    So, yup, not too interesting.

    Oh, almost forgot. I got my first ID card. I was afraid of how good or bad my photo will be, I was almost sure that it was terrible. But as it turns out, it is actually good, very good. Even my smile looks nice, and I'm not the kind of person that knows how to smile.
    Only thing that looks truly awful is my signature. What can I do, I have a bad handwriting.

    Hmmm...looks like I can install the 6.0.1 soak test for the Moto Maxx...and they have it for root and non root. The only version it out for is Brazilian model and guess which one my maxx is...

    My concern as always is to not to lose my data and flash it without a Nandroid back-up. Either way, I'll decide in the week and this has the makings of a weekend project. If I get 6.0.1 to run and run smoothy, I'll be using both devices interchangeably.

    Yankees got rained out too.

    Cleveland has a nice little team this year. Not sure if they're a playoff team, but if they're injury free, they'll compete for the Wildcard for sure...

    I watch soccer, but not as much as I used to. My EPL team, the Hotspurs have had a nice year, although they should be winning the table...Leicester City is 7(!) points clear. We're 4 points clear of rival Arsenal, so that's good. Looks like if things hold up we're off to the Champions League next season.

    I really wanna try this. I was surprised I didn't get the soak test invite (not really), but from what I'm seeing, if I flash it I still should be able to get the official OTA when launched. That'd be tasty indeed...

    Now we just need Sony to get off their *** and launch Wear 1.4. Pretty much all the Wear watches have it...it's like Sony thought only 10 people bought the SW3 and have decided to maybe not update it until they start rolling out 6.0.1 to their phones and tablets...
