Cable stuff
8/26/07, 1:14pm
I accidentally discovered yesterday that my DVR can pause and rewind live TV. Neat!

Anyway, now that I have a decent TV and a little time on my hands, I signed up with Netflix again and will catch up on a few things. The first thing I added to my queue was the Deadwood discs. How many seasons were there? Netflix only has three. Is that all of them?

I think there were only three seasons of Deadwood

There is talk of them doing a two-hour movie for HBO, but they have struck the sets at Melodyland Studios in Newhall and many of the cast members have gone on to do other things.

The pause is the reason to have it because any VCR can record when ya want it to. (I know, I know)... a VCR aint a harddrive, I'm just being a DVR pretentious ass.

Here is a show I think might be up your alley. I like it, actually. L.A. Ink on TLC which is a reality show of a gal who opens her own tattoo parlor in L.A. -- some really cool tats on there.

That must be the one Bill mentioned. He said something about a show about tattoos, but didn't say what it was called or what channel it was on. I'll have to look for that one. Thanks.

Hmmm, ok. Let's see if I can help you out. What's going on in the DVD you have?

By the way, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee was on HBO again today. What a great film.

Bullock and Swearengen beat each other up while Dan shot Sol and Charlie Utter, then later Dan beat the crap out of someone in the bar. I have no idea who that was that Dan beat up or why any of this happened.

Honestly though, I'm really losing interest in the show. I might take the rest of the DVDs out of my NetFlix queue.

I just put that at the top of my NetFlix queue.

Yes, great film. I was going to ask you if you wanted me to tape it for you, but it sounds like you will be able to NetFlix it.

Hmm, ok, Dan is always beating someone up in the bar, but I think this was a case of jealosy over a woman. Al is in a bad mood due to the way the governor is trying to control Deadwood and Al decides to insult Bulluck by yelling down to him from his balcony about all the lovemaking Bulock's been doing with Alma. That triggers the fight.

In any case, even when I has just finished watching the episodes, I'd consult the HBO web site to read the episode summary. Here is the link for Season 2: http://www.hbo.com/deadwood/episode/season2/episode
13.shtml

Hope that helps,

Tape? You mean someone actually still owns a VCR? LOL

The thing with Dan wasn't about any woman, though I wasn't really quite sure what started it. It was someone he was looking for.

As for the fight with Al and Bullock, I did see that scene where Al was on the balcony. I didn't think that's what the fight was about, though. Seems kind of a stupid reason to get in that severe of a fight.

By the way, we need to get together sometime. When I moved, I pulled that old metal detector out of the closet. You're still welcome to it, if you want it. It's a Bounty Hunter "Red Baron" (I don't know the exact model number), and I have three of the round white detector things that go on the end. I don't know what is the difference between the three, except that two are quite a bit larger than the third. Also, it has no battery. I opened the battery compartment and there are two connectors in there that look like they would snap onto a regular old 9-volt battery, but judging by the size of the battery compartment, I'm guessing the thing actually takes some kind of proprietary battery. The compartment is a lot bigger than a couple 9-volts. Anyway, it's yours if you want it.

Hi, Lon,

That would be great, but I'd want to pay you something for it. I'll try researching the battery and see if one is available.

The Bullock/Al thing was building up for a while. The balcony scene was only the straw that broke the camel's back.

Dan: Hard to say what was going on. He was always pissed at somebody! The guy who played him, Earl (I can't remember his last name), had a guest shot on Psych. The other night. He and the guy who plays Mr. Wu would join in on the Deadwood discussion group on HBO all the time. They seem like great guys. Earl even invited members to come and hear his band at the House of Blues.

Oh, I forgot...Lol on the VCR. Yes, we still own one, though it's a combo DVD player and VCR I'm thinking of getting a combo VCR/DVD burner so I can transfer all our tapes to DVD's Sure would save a bunch of storage space. I saw one at Costco yesterday for $279.00.


On the metal detector: I'm guessing the different sized heads are for searching for different things. For example, I know they make heads specifically for locating gold.

I wouldn't take any money for it. I can't even guarantee the thing still works.

Here are a few pictures of it. Maybe this will help your research.

Hi, Lon,

Thanks. I'll try to do some research this week. It looks like it may just take two 9v batteries, which would be easy.

That could be, but I'd be a little surprised. As big as the battery compartment is, they'd rattle around in there quite a bit. There's nothing in there to hold them still, and there's a lot more room than two 9v's need.

Hmmm, that could pose a problem, though we might be able to rrig something if we knew the power/amp requirements. I'll check around.

I finally got around to watching this today (I've had the DVD for almost two weeks). Excellent movie!

I've given up on Deadwood, though. It just wasn't holding my interest. And since I wasn't paying enough attention to each episode, there were always little points coming up that confused me because I didn't know what was going on. I made it about halfway through the second season, but I've taken the rest of the discs off my Netflix queue.

Hi, Lon,

Glad you liked "Wounded Knee." I thought it was excellent too. I may buy the DVD.

I know what you mean about Deadwood. The plot lines were very convoluted and I always found the dialog hard to follow. It didn't seem like "normal" 19th Century English, whic I know was more formal tha ours, but that seemed almost Shakesperean at times. I did love some of the characters, though, especially Calamity Jane (Robin Weigel).

Now that I'm spending so much time commuting, I've been going through a bunch of audiobooks, including many Mark Twain books. I'm listening to some of his lesser known travel books (A Tramp Abroad, Innocents Abroad, etc.) where he wrote in a more "normal" voice (as opposed to using dialect, like he did in his novels). I haven't read these books in 20 or 30 years, and forgot how his "normal" style sounded. His 19th century English does sound very odd (though, in my opinion, not at all like the dialog on Deadwood). Formal is a very good word to use to describe it. We're much more conservative with words today. A modern author could write the same books in half the pages simply by eliminating all the extra words we don't feel compelled to pad our sentences with.

I also have to wonder where the guy who narrated my copy of A Tramp Abroad is from. Every once in a while he comes up with some very bizarre pronunciations for certain words. For a while I suspected it might be a computer generated voice system, but he does accents and foreign words pretty well, and once even sang the lyrics to a song mentioned in the book. But, there have been maybe a dozen words that he consistently pronounces in such a weirdly wrong way, it leaves me scratching my head.

The only two I remember offhand are gymnasium and ceramics. He pronounces gymnasium as gim-naw-seum (with the "g" as it sounds in "girl"). Ceramics is pronounced with a hard K sound for the both "c"s -- Keramiks. In the one chapter where he kept butchering "gymnasium", there were several other words he also consistently got very wrong. Very odd...

I hope the commute is not making you too crazy! Listening to Twain would make it a bit easier.

I've always wanted to chck out the writings of Ambrose Bierce. He was a 19th century writer, who often wrote about life in the west. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambrose_Bierce. I studied him a little in college, but that was a long time ago. By the way Bierce's Wiki entry reads, he sounds more like a 19th century Hunter Thompson!

I don't mind it at all. Of course, I love my car and I love driving, so that helps. I would rather be putting these miles on the car as "fun miles" (ie: road trips) instead of going to work and back. I need to look into some kind of mass transit or carpool options, at least for some of the time, but with my shift, I probably don't have many choices. I already checked Metrolink, and they don't have any trains running late enough to get me to work.

>By the way Bierce's Wiki entry reads, he sounds more like a

I've read a couple of his books, and have a few others as audiobooks waiting for me to get to them. He was definitely an interesting character, that's for sure.

Right!!! You definately don't want it to start before you leave for home. The 14 turns into a parking lot.

I've driven Angeles Crest Highway in the winter when there's snow on the road many times, but I definitely wouldn't do it when I'm on a deadline and have to be somewhere at a specific time...

True. I know many others try Sierra Highway, but that can be as busy as the 14.

There's also Little Tujunga Canyon. I love that road, but it's even slower than Angeles Crest Highway on a good day. I haven't tried using that to get to/from work yet.

Well, I hope this winter isn't too bad for you. A buddy of mine used to live in Palmdale and work in Chatsworth. If anything went wrong on the 14, he could easily double his commute time.

I have the small advantage of working an odd shift, though lately I'm not all that sure I'd consider it an advantage.

I've seen the 14 backed up for several miles a couple times in the past month or two. Fortunately, (so far) I've been on the other side, heading the opposite direction.

The closest I've been so far to being stuck in that gridlock was when we had that weird storm a bit over a week ago. Everything was fine until I got to Agua Dulce and the CHP closed down the entire freeway to clear a rain related accident ahead of us. That only cost me five or ten minutes, though. We were back up to 80 mph again as soon as the tow trucks got out of the way.

From what my buddy, Jon used to tell me, that sounds like the norm when it rains, sleets or snows. I hope you have someone to take Ashley out in the event you get stuck.

I hadn't really thought about it, but I suppose I could always call the building manager if I absolutely had to... My brother is in Lake Hughes, about 20 miles away, but if I was stuck, he'd probably be in the same situation. Maybe even worse... Lake Hughes is a few hundred feet higher in elevation.

Yep, it's usually worse at the top of the grade on the 14 too.

You could always crash with us if you had to. That wouldn't help Ashley, though.

I watched it again last night on HBO. It really draws you in.

I noticed something I had realized before. On the first part of the end credits they have small pictures of the actor in costume beside a picture of the real person. Very neat!

I saw that, too. I had to rewind a little because two or three had passed by before I realized what it was.

I didn't pick up on it until I saw the picture of Sitting Bull. I've seen the portrait of the real Sitting Bull many times.

I think that's the one that did it for me, too. The real photo was a pretty famous one I'd seen many times.

Yes, right. I really liked how they used what looked like old photographic stills throught the film for scene transitions.

Also, I thought the actor who played Sitting Bull did an amazing job, as did all the cast.

What "extras" does the DVD have?

I have no idea. I didn't go through the extras. I probably should have, but I had been holding onto a few Netflix discs for almost a week and wanted to get to the next ones in my queue.
