In around the last week of June or the first week of July, I bought a pair of Adidas Neo shoes for around $60. I figure Adidas is a reputable company, and these should last me a bit. A week ago, I noticed on the left shoe, the glue connecting the bottom half of the shoe to the top, the part that seals the shoe, was separating almost completely. This angers me, especially anytime I encounter a puddle, because I am a man who does not appreciate wet socks. Nor do I appreciate a shoe that depreciates so rapidly after some three months. Now look, Adidas is a fine, competent shoe company typically, I probably just bought the shoes that were made Friday night. But this also isn't the first time a pricey pair of shoes crapped out on my in a relatively short amount of time.
Could the fault be placed on me? Possibly. I don't know what the normal life expectancy of shoes should be, but I wear the same pair of shoes every day, sometimes walking around in them for at most 12-13 hours in a d…
In no particular order:Billy Joel's library spans three decades, so there's plenty of materialEven if there wasn't plenty of material to work with, Margaritaville and Garth Brook's channel regularly play other artist's musicHe doesn't take any shit from anybodyInitially I thought maybe it would've been too expensive to have a whole channel for him, but if SiriusXM can afford The Beatles to have their own channel, then by golly, Billy Joel should be fineIt would make me happyHeck, even if they combined it with Elton John, I'd be happy, maybe happier
So, SiriusXM, I've given many good reasons for Billy Joel to get his channel put back permanently. Your move!
I recently returned my Samsung Galaxy S8+ and decided to get the Sony Xperia XA2 Ultra. I got the Sony because I played with it at Best Buy, and really enjoyed the experience, and as I researched more into it, I found I really liked the phone. Now, after having the phone for a week, here's some thoughts on my experiences.
Great 6 inch screen. Although it's only 1080p, it's Samsung-vibrant, which I likeGreat battery life, easily can get through a heavy-use day with time to spare at the end of the night.Great camera; another reason I wanted this phone is because I love my Sony a5100 and the camera is pretty dang nice on this phone I must say.Fast. 6 GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 630 are just fine on this beast.
Cons: Poor ergonomics. This phone is huge, not as easy to hold as the S8+, bulky as hell, and pretty heavy.Horrible screen rotation algorithm. I've used big phones before, but this one is extremely sensitive to the slightest tilt of the screen. Now, that would be…
