Great USB Rechargable/Water Resistancant headlamp / $25
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on September 22nd, 2017 @ 11:33AM

I'd just like to alert you to this awesome headlamp that is on sale for $25. Coagine bought me one for metal detecting. I've been using it for months and it's so great. It's never yet even ran out of light. You then just recharge it via USB. You can use it for whatever though, biking, or just walking around at night/outside your house. This thing OWNS. Looks like I forgot to write up an official review.

I've created/attached it as an affiliate link should you actually chose to buy it. It says I need to make (3) sales (of anything) within 180 days or they don't let you do sponsor/referral links. So I'll likely get kicked out but we'll see. Certainly no pressure to buy or anything but I can totally recommend this thing for sure.

Car Stereo FML
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on September 22nd, 2017 @ 9:26AM

Update: Received the cable. used a youtube video to pull out my stereo and hook it up. Only once I got it all in, it wasn't plugged in all the way so it didn't work. So I had to pull it out a second time. Then I connected the cable to a bluetooth USB and now I have bluetooth on my phone running through my stereo for about $20. The only problem is that my power cable keeps disconnecting which affects the sound, constantly haha. Power cable connections are always the worst. They work then they don't work.

Original post So way back in say 2003/2004 I put an Alpine Stereo in my car instead of the stock one. I went to this stereo store and who knows, I think I paid maybe $800+. Well after installing it, it actually sounded SHITTIER than my default stereo. Who knows why really. Maybe it needs better speakers or just wasn't set up correctly. It's just nothing special for all the price I paid.

But it had an IPOD cable and I could use those grayscale first gen Ipods and pack on gigs of songs. But then both of my ipods failed. I had bought a 2nd bigger one on ebay but those things all have a problem where the disc gets in some STUCK state. The fix is to BANG it or some other lame thing but that stopped working on both of them. And as you know, getting any mp3 on an ipod is a major pain in the ass. So for the last who knows, 4-5 years, (15 year old car now), I've just been using CDs of Mp3s. The thing at least plays Mp3s.

Also the alpine UI is the worst ever created. It's so bad. It has this finger slide bar that goes the length of the unit. None of the buttons make sense, it's impossible to do simple things. I'm not sure who makes better stereos (I used to also like Kenwood)., but I should have picked them instead. Alpine was just the most awesomest in the 1990s is why I picked it.

So to continue, I discovered all I had to do all this time to just hook up to my phone for the last uh 5-7 years was buy ONE fucking cable and plug it in the back. I looked up a youtube video and it seems pretty easy to get my stereo out. That's the one cool thing about youtube, people making videos about doing things to your car that you're able to do if people just show you.

I think on top of that, I can connect the cable, once I swap it, to this blue tooth receiver and maybe get bluetooth on my phone. That will be so lame if all I needed was $30 to get my phone going through my stereo with bluetooth. OH WELL I guess. I'm waiting for the cable and then I'll give it a shot.

On my hangouts someone said just get a $100 new receiver at FRYS and they'll install it. But I think if I can just solve the problem for $7, I'll try that. I LOVE my car but buying a new stereo or doing upgrades to it, is pretty pointless IMO.

On my baby mama's Honda Odyssey (NEVER BUY THOSE), the stupid nav system is stuck in a DOWN position (like a tray table) and you can't even view the backup camera. Then one of those print your own CD labels jammed the whole DISC changer. So If I want to fix that, I have to take the dash apart there and try to fix it.


I have one of those bluetooth-to-FM gadgets that plugs into the cig lighter, like this. Quality is acceptable and it is awesome not to have to deal with a hard connection.

I was thinking about those as I see them on the Amazon spinner but I think the quality would be bad.

It isn't 100% but it isn't far off. They're much better than they used to be.

Anker Bluetooth Speaker for $25 (#1/8800 reviews)
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on September 21st, 2017 @ 9:44AM

I ordered one, maybe for a kid for christmas or me.


We just bought an Anker Bluetooth, although it is a little more expensive, it is still amazing for the price.

It sounds great. Totally worth it.

Marvel's Defenders
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on September 21st, 2017 @ 9:00AM

Started Marvel's Iron Fist and it was more interesting and entertaining than the stupid Defenders when the opposite should be the case.

So boring. Maybe we've seen enough of these shows. It's almost as boring as the Shield but the Shield is the worst of them all. I think Flash is better than Defenders so far. haha.


I barely made it through both seasons of Daredevil, and I am a huge fan of pre-Disney Marvel comics. I tried, but had no patience for the other Marvel shows on Netflix.

Sad what Marvel has become under Disney. I think the MCU is ruining Marvel's cult following by mainstreaming it, and it's only gotten worse under Disney.

Apparently it's "progressive" to drive business into the ground and make taxes and prices so high that you can barely scrape by. Some progress we have here.

Corporate Trends
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on September 20th, 2017 @ 1:32PM

Like 5 years back people started up the whole 1v1s. It used to be you only saw your boss 1v1 when you're getting your review and anything else is just too g. But now., it's like all the time everywhere. I spend all my time on my bike dodging people in their 1v1s (not just at my company) at all the surrounding corporate businesses.

Then they bring: WALK AND TALK (cringe). 1v1s where the people do laps all over the place. I'm always trying to dodge these idiot corporate people along the way to work taking up the entire sidewalk doing their lame walk and talk 1v1s. haha.

What's next?

Other trends:

Wine & Painting


I would get one of those old school rubber horns and try to sneak up and scare the shit out of them!

Beep beep Richie!
