Getting a direcTV box for the computer Room was a great idea, although I should tune it to more than M2 and MuchMusic. Most days I turn on the TV window on an unused virtual desktop, and listen for the rest of the day, much like I would do with MTV and BET (when BET was mostly videos) after school when I was dialing the local BBSes in Raleigh.

But then again, I’ve always been a music junkie – at least since 1999 (read the linked review – I totally agree) came out in 1983 (I was 12. Lady Cab Driver and DMSR blew my mind, although I didn’t appreciate them musically until I was about 16, and spent most of my time on side 1), I’ve been into finding music I like. Maybe not as aggressively as
, or as wide a range as , but I’ll find the money to pick up something I want, whether I have the money or not. hence the new cassette every paycheck when I knew I was going to be scrounging for quarters to do laundry, or eating bread sandwiches. MTV wasn’t much of an eye opener, until I discovered 120 minutes, and Head Banger’s Ball, and a couple of the specialty shows they used to have back when 99% of MTV’s programming was music.


About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
