Oh Lawd, won’t you buy me a 80inch screen, My friends all have 50’s I have to be seen

Logic Smogic!  Consumer Reports and all the leading  Audio/Video magazines  say’s based on my room size I shouldn’t buy a TV larger than a 46 inch set.   A screen too large could cause eye strain and headaches.

Hell, I’m a man, when it come to size we  want the biggest.   It’s like a car, yes a six cylinder  is adequate and it will get the job done-how nice.  But we want the HEMI, eight cylinders of rumbling power.  Sure, its gets 2 miles to the gallon and you’ll need a  small business loan to buy gas.   It’s about pride, power and glory!  (excuse me, as I wipe a tear from my eye)

No man runs up to your car and say’s ooh, you have six?    It’s damm man, you got a friggin HEMI!

SO UNDERSTAND AND RECOGNIZE!   I can’t buy a 46, my fragile male ego wont allow it.  My children have fifties,   Heck, my daughter has a forty something in her bedroom.

I want immediate blindness, as you enter my postage stamp of an apartment, you’ll need sunglasses.  I want ooooh’s .   I wanna hear, oh its so big! (so few of us hear that without uncontrollable giggling)     Look at that picture!

“I wanna say to my clearly envious visitors , ohhh its nothing, just something to watch the news”

Last fall, a friend invited a few of us to watch the 49er’s in 73 inches of half time wonder. The TV was one of those rear projection TV‘s from the rent a center.  The TV sucked big time, the  picture looked blurry, from the side, so we had to sit in a small section of the sofa to properly see the TV, there we where crammed, on this small section of this large sofa, unable to reach for snacks or drinks.    No one returned during the playoffs.

Lawd, I want one of  the larger, LCD,LED or Plasma… with a good bright and sharp picture. and if you can delivered  it before the Oscars or NBA playoffs  it would be appreciated…

and remember,  ooohs and ahhhs……


See Lawd, Double! Double!  if I get anything smaller, my kids will snicker, please…its about HONOR!

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
