Blurring t-shirt!

The BBC was accused of “bias” after blurring out a musician’s T-shirt bearing the name of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The BBC & others. Are a terrestrial broadcasting network. That serves the masses. It is hard for networks and local tv/radio stations to please anyone/everyone.

I myself! Don’t like it because? It restricts in general “FREEDOM” as well as free speech.

At the same time! Given the situation. It was the best move.

COULD THIS BE THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME?

DID I MISS ANYTHING IN MUSIC? NO!

When I was growing up! About age 11. My tastes in music changed. I moved away from rock-n-roll. And began listening to classical music. YES! I did miss out on some rock-n-roll. But! None the worse.

I was lucky enough to be born in a time when FM was just coming into its own. At that time. AM stations were duplicating on FM. Some started their programming at 12 noon. Others 7 pm. There were 4 FM stations that played classical music. I drove my mom nuts! Because I would listen to it.

Later! My tastes changed again to traditional jazz. Then Standards. Then back to rock-n-roll. I missed about 3 years fo rock! But! I learned that!

I went by what I liked/loved. I could not care about! What hot or not. The interesting thing is that the kids in the neighborhood loved my choices in rock!

As we would say in the 60’s, the 70’s! Do your thing! Don’t concern yourself what others think/say!

This is “YOUR” life!

HD ANTENNAS! FACT, MYTH, FICTION?

 

 

 

When it comes to HD antennas! Truth! Can be much stranger than anything. With HD antennas.

It all comes right down to this! Economics? Or where you live? First! Where you live. I live in an area where. It depends on the elevation and atmospheric conditions. Even when we had analog. There too! the same as well. When HD was promoted as much easier way to watch TV. As compared to analog. Even with HD! You can still end up watching HD TV as you were watching it via analog.

When you get right down to it! There is neither no difference or preference at all. Both susceptible from conditions outside.

And with this hype of: “If you but this antenna”You can get all these other channels as well!” “BULLSHIT!”

Where I live! Depending on where I am and the conditions outside.   I can get TV signals anywhere from. Canada, Akron, canton, Ohio, Erie, PA., Detroit, Mich. Again! Depending on extenuating circumstances outside.

This is nothing new! There are people who are called “DX’er’s” these are people who love to find stations either on TV, radio. This is a hobby.There is no age, preference as to who wants to find out for themselves how many stations they can get on any given day/night.

BRING BACK THE ROOFTOP ROTARY ANTENNA!

You can get more stations with it when there was a blackout of football games!

OR THE MICROWAVE ROOFTOP ANTENNA!

At least, you could get a premium movie channel with it!

As to economics? And with cable and satellite companies raising their rates. This does come into play.

With the internet, streaming video services. mobile devices. Some for either free or little charge. Compared to them? You decide. It’s your money.
