So aside from "Lost", the only other network television show I like to watch is Heroes which is featured on NBC Monday night at 8PM. I have been watching this show since day one and is probably my favorite, even over Lost. This show is basically about people with 'abilities' or in X-men terms, "mutants". This is not all sci-fi but has a bit of drama that even some of the ladies will like (although not my lady). This show has alot of twists and turns and a variety of cast and characters. The show is about to pick up again on April 23, so make sure you check your local listing and find out your local airtime!

Business Trip #7 - Philadelphia, PA

Ok, it was't exactly Philly but rather a 'suburb' of the area, Mt. Laurel, NJ. I arrived in the evening so by the time I got on the highway it was dark. I hope it was the darkness but the simple residential streets would not allow left turn and some times, not even right turns! They have kind of like freeway off/on ramps where you loop around to come back to the intersection; wierd if you ask me. Another goofy thing I encountered was getting around at the DoubleTree hotel I was staying at; I had a heck of a time getting around and finding my room; maybe it was the margarita I had at the bar but I seriously walked around the place 2 times in order to find my room on the second floor.

As far as restaurants, I hit a local Hooters place for some wings, had a nice microbrew at PJ Whelihan's, a mojito and margarita at Don Pablos and unfortunately some bad service at Outback Steakhouse (won't provide you with a link to them because of the horrible service). I did get to wander through the Historic District of Philly, so I walked mostly past monuments such as the Liberty Bell, Benjamin Franklins grave, etc. The regret I have is not being able to stop by Philadelphia's world famous Cheesesteak place, Pat's King of Steaks. Overall the trip was OK, didn't do much else except work.

Looking for some cheap MP3's for your iPod, Zune or home based media center collection? Check out this Russian based site, where you can download quality MP3 tracks for 15 cents per track! Like an earlier post back in post #23, this is yet another site that seems sketchy but has been around for some time now. I have a few buddies that have turned me onto this. I just signed up with a $30 deposit and they threw in free $10! If you put down more money up front, they throw in more money. I think they max out at $50 though..

So far this has been great, I've purchased a few rare cuts, live shows and acoustic tracks from bands like Creed, Chevelle, Limp Bizkit, far they have downloaded and played up to my expectations! Of course you can always find MP3's using BitTorrent.
