New Toys

When I got home yesterday I had a couple boxes waiting for me. The complete Twilight Zone series and an XM antenna. The home theatre system we got a while ago was XM-ready so I ordered an antenna on amazon and hooked it up yesterday. I just started messing with it a bit last night and I'm listening online at work today and it seems pretty cool. Lots of neat foreign stations, music by decades, tons of genres, talk radio, news, sports(bleh), etc... And an all-day reggaeton station, booyah! We watched the first six episodes of the first Twilight Zone season and they were great, just like I remember. When we got the Alfred Hitchcock DVDs they were much more dated than I rememeber, but the TZ ones hold up pretty well, although there are still some hilarious overacting parts.

I had two cancellations today so my first day back is in chill mode. Ahhh yeaaahhh!

Oh, I love the old Twilight Zone! I get so excited when the Sci-Fi channel runs a marathon. :D

I've always wanted to get that dvd with all the old-time scary movies. We have one my husband won at work. Some of the acting....scarier than the monsters!!

Re: hey! music!
Heh, to be honest, I really don't know anything about the genre. I really liked the song I was listening to them, but I don't know anything else by them. Would Alabina be North African Arab music? They're the only group I can think of who would be remotely close to that style. ;)
