Finding Places to Watch Movies on the Web
So I was looking around on the internet the other day. I wanted to watch a streaming movie, but there was nothing on Netflix that I had not already watched or that I really wanted to watch. At any rate I was looking around and I find this site, but it was something that made me feel like something was wrong. Apparently there was, but I do not understand what. It was supposedly something like or the same as this streaming site called let me watch this, but there is something that made me feel uncomfortable and after doing some research I found that other site and it had a working forum where they were talking about that other site. It had been somehow compromised and taken over by some other person or entity, I have no idea why that it was taken over or hijacked and I do not intend to give them a chance to do anything to me.
Of course that made me worry about the other site as well, and I do not want to download the HD codec that they had on there. I was using VLC player and it worked great on the site. In fact it works almost all of the time. I was using it on my big screen TV, because I have a 10 foot long HDMI cable that I can use to connect my computer to a 37 inch TV I have in my office at home. I do the same thing on netflix too, because I do not really like watching stuff on a computer monitor because it is too small. Of course I could just buy a media player or fix up one of the game consoles for it, but my brothers would be a pain if I had one of them in my room.
Stepping out Onto My Own
Graduating college was such a finality that I did not know how to feel. Suddenly, a large part of my entire life was simply gone. One day I was attending classes like I did for years and years then the next thing I know, I’m standing on the side of the street looking down at an Employment booklet hoping that I will find some graduate jobs that reflect what I’ve been studying in college the past four years. It’s a frightening experience, honestly. While college will teach you to become independent to some degree, it doesn’t prepare you for the emptiness that follow when you’ve finished your academic life.
Sleek Sound Matching Affordable Price: KRK Rokit Series
When you are picky about sound quality when it comes to speakers, KRK is a company that comes to mind when “good reputation” is the name of the game. The primary advantage while using Rokit series may be as sleek as its other counterparts. Along with the budget concerns and high quality performance, this brand has something to superior brag about. It definitely stands by its company reputation as the fruit never falls far from its tree.
In particular, the KRK Rokit series all have a very fantastic and trendy quality in them that is unparalleled. While it takes pride on its company name, the speakers designate a well-known discolored cones help to make your KRK series a superior product line. If you ask anyone employed as technical engineers and anyone involved in the recording industry for years, KRK has always been a preferred brand. There’s this pleasant feel every time the company logo lightsup each time you turn on these speakers.
No doubt, KRK has produced an incredible tough pair of speakers, even though they are somewhat heavy, with regards to the usual speaker dimensions. It features a curled denture layout that is additionally intended to get rid of any distortion that is included with inferior build quality. Moreover, the KRK RP6s have a very fantastic reputation inside the tunes market, and you can actually discover their whereabouts in numerous significant studios around the globe. Technicians are actually using them seeing the performance of these speakers for years, and KRK has established his or her Rokit displays among the ideal models inside the recording industry.
Some KRK models would likely give you a great flat result and have fantastic mids. Sound resolution is superb on top of that, but you will have to appreciate your presenter position to find how majority of these displays function. The appropriate position are referenced in detail in your guidebook so be sure to study it prior to deciding how to tinker with its controls. If you are looking for a set of displays which provides you with uncoloured sonics, next these is going to be ideal for you. On the other hand, due to the dimension (6″) there may be several missing features associated with bass result.
Considering the price grade of these monitors, the value is fairly affordable. Usual price ranges from $200 to $300 per speaker. This means you will get a set of outstanding monitors for your home recording studio for just $500. However, what I am not a fan about is its bass results. As the speakers are just 6″, you really should add the sub for anyone who is a huge bass fan. These speakers will never provide the ground-shaking bass you want when playing rock music. You will also find the entire array of the fewer frequencies of the sub could possibly be needed to achieve the sound quality you want. On the other hand, regarding mixing/reference requirements, your bass result is not a hassle at all.
KRK Rokit RP6 are monitors you will not regret getting if you are just starting up a small recording studio. In case you own a more impressive business, you really should spend an additional amount and put money into your RP8s to get broader consistency and bass results. On the other hand, amateurs can find these sound monitors enough for their needs as the performance will always exceed their expectations.

Democratic Convention:Day One
The DNC kicked off the week on a positive message. Some of the highlights are her for you to peruse if you missed it.
The Head On Radio Network is there broadcasting live from the Pepsi Center. We had our technical bumps on day one. Mark Levine stuck it out till the end to provide us the audio feed for all the proceedings. We will be there throughout. Your only source outside the for profit media. Exciting stuff. Guy James and Mark Levine will be live from the convention daily from noon eastern till 6pm. Followed by Bob Kincaid, Strictly Confidential and yours truly with Fox’d up to round out the evening.
The two best speeches came from the mighty lion himself Ted Kennedy, and Michelle Obama. Both brought the crowd to it’s feet. Mark Levine commented through emotion to observe even the cold hard journalists in radio row were teary and emotional when Teddy took the stage. The Lion. The Legend. Passing the torch of the progressive agenda to Obama. Not the Clinton(s). Rightly so in my opinion.
Cariline Inroduces Ted Kennedy and Teddy Kennedy
Then there was Michelle Obama. Subtle jabs at the right using examples of how she and her family embody family values without using the term. My overall impression of the Obama family is one of honest care and truly passionate love for one another. It;’s a stark contrast to McSame ditching his first wife after an accident that left her disabled. Nope, on the right, it’s about having that trophy wife, or in John McCain’s world, a Sugar Momma!
MSNBC’s embed didn’t play nice. Here’s a link to the video.
The opening night was all very positive and happy. I expect the mood to change in dramatic fasion tomorrow. Hillary Clinton takes the stage. With the hatchet well and burried (I hope) Mrs. Clinton should come out ready to take names.
PRAVDA (FOX) can’t take the heat!
It’s insane the concept that Fox News is providing the pool feed for the convention. In this clip (HT: C&L) we get a taste of the (hack , choke, vomit) “Fair and Balanced” coverage we can expect.
Second, watch this loser of a kid (journalist) attempting to create fear out of nothing.
Third, When you ask protesters about free speech and they begin hurling insults at you. Perhaps you might consider your so-called news outlet is seen as a big part of the problem.

Brad Blog : Rove Threatened GOP IT Guru If He Does Not ‘Take the Fall’ for Election Fraud in Ohio
I find this plauseable. Anyone who pays attention Karl Rove is about as corrupt a P.O.S. as you can find. The comment threads are a mix of “No Surprise” to “The For Profit Media will ignore it” to a swath of trolls attempting to diminish this to hearsay. When it comes from someone’s council that the witness feels threatened, that is not hearsay. We’ll have to wait and see if this gets ant traction at all. I’m not holding my breath. If it does get a look in and pans out to be true. Just watch the rats abandon ship in droves.
From The Brad Blog:
Karl Rove has threatened a GOP high-tech guru and his wife, if he does not “‘take the fall’ for election fraud in Ohio,” according to a letter sent this morning to Attorney General Michael Mukasey, by Ohio election attorney Cliff Arnebeck.
The email, posted in full below, details threats against Mike Connell of the Republican firm New Media Communications, which describes itself on its website as “a powerhouse in the field of Republican website development and Internet services” and having “played a strategic role in helping the GOP expand its technological supremacy.”
Here’s the full email from Brad Blog:
Sent: Thursday, July 24, 2008 10:51 AM
Subject: Report of Rove threats against witness Michael ConnellDear Attorney General Mukasey:
We have been confidentially informed by a source we believe to be credible that Karl Rove has threatened Michael Connell, a principal witness we have identified in our King Lincoln case in federal court in Columbus, Ohio, that if he does not agree to “take the fall” for election fraud in Ohio, his wife Heather will be prosecuted for supposed lobby law violations.This appears to be in response to our designation of Rove as the principal perpetrator in the Ohio Corrupt Practices Act/RICO claim with respect to which we issued document hold notices last Thursday to you and to the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform.
I have informed court chambers and am in the process of informing the Ohio Attorney General’s and US Attorney’s offices in Columbus for the purpose, among other things, of seeking protection for Mr. Connell and his family from this reported attempt to intimidate a witness.
Concurrently herewith, I am informing Mr. Conyers and Mr. Kucinich in connection with their Congressional oversight responsibilities related to these matters.
Because of the serious engagement in this matter that began in 2000 of the Ohio Statehouse Press Corps, 60 Minutes, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, C-Span and Jim VandeHei, and the public’s right to know of gross attempts to subvert the rule of law, I am forwarding this information to them, as well.

This stinks of Valerie Plame says ePluribus Media :
Ohio Attorney General Asked to Protect Key Witness in Election Fraud Case
In an email sent to OhioNewsBureau by lead attorney Cliff Arnebeck, who filed a federal lawsuit in August 2006 asserting the GOP gamed the system and won the state by suppressing the votes of various progressive-leaning groups like students and African Americans and who wants to revive the case to protect the integrity of the 2008 election, Nancy H. Rogers, the former dean of the law school at The Ohio State University and interim Attorney General, was asked to provide immunity protection services to Connell.
The immunity request from Arnebeck to the Ohio AG was triggered by information from a confidential source that Karl Rove, a kingpin GOP strategist, threatened that if Mike Connell doesn’t go in the tank for cyber-rigging the 2004 election in Ohio, his wife will be sued for lobbying law violations. Using this kind of hardball tactic to rain retribution down on an individual for not allowing himself to be “thrown under the bus” smacks of the identical retaliation tactic used to punish Valerie Plame by outing her as a spy for remarks made by her husband Joe Wilson before the commencement of the war in Iraq that no evidence existed for uranium being sold by Niger to Saddam Hussein.
It’s hard not to agree.
Add the name Troy King to that list that includes Larry Craig!
