Bye bye Sony, hello:

Well, I've been having issue as of late with my Sony LCD. Audio and video had been cutting in and out during games and movies on my PS3...troubleshot the heck out of it and narrowed it down to the 2 lone HDMI ports on the thing going bad. So, with pay raise comes a bit more play money...hence the new baby in the link.

6 more inches
Thin as heck!
Uses half the power my current TV does
More HDMI ports
4,000,000x1 contrast ratio (compared to like 4,000 for the current one)
and better Hz

None yet...except the fact I got pretty forced into this situation sooner than I planned.
Can't sell TV*

*Can't sell it because I feel HDMI would be a huge selling point on a 1080P TV. That being said Best Buy got my money for 3 reasons:
1. Model about 200-300 cheaper than anywhere else
2. Free delivery (which really helps out in my living enviroment)
3. Free recycling of the old one (and no worrying about having to sell a gimped TV)
4. 36 months no interest!

Now I just have to wait patiently until Thursday. :D

Long promised photos

I know I update this thing less and less lately, but such is the nature of my life...too busy to really mess with this thing! That being said, here's some of my shots from my first trip to Las Vegas last month for my old Korea roommate's 30th birthday. We had a suite at the MGM Grand...and as for lack of photos, that would be because I never carried my camera so most of these shots were acquired from others in the group...only the driving shots are from my cell phone. Enjoy!

Las Vegas 2010

Also of note is my running of the 2010 DC Red Dress Run. Google the term "hashing" and you'll understand a bit more. This was this past Saturday, and is now officially in the top 5 days/nights I've ever had here in DC!

Both events were harmless...but VERY fun. :D
