Carol_B commented on 3. David Cook, 'This Loud Morning'
_Everything_Zen.. here is that memo: When an artist's debut CD sells over 1 million copies because a bunch of people who fall in love with him on a TV show buy it up like crazy...then follows that up by selling less than 1/10th that many the second time around when it becomes about the quality of the product instead of reality TV momentum, it will be considered by the general public as a flop. Overly loyal fans will continue to think he is the bestest thing ever. End of Memo.
imaginecb wrote about The Stereo Shop
My husband got me a remote starter for Christmas 2011, so sweet! My car is manual transmission and no one else in town will touch them because you have to override a safety feature to install, but the Stereo Shop assured him they were trained and able to do this. The remote start they installed was done improperly and after 3 trips back to let them "fix it" I asked for our money back. I had brought my car to the dealer I bought it from and the mechanics there said that Stereo Shop had messed with the wiring in a way that they wouldn't touch and for me to bring it back to be uninstalled by SS. The owner or store manager, Christopher Brent, who was a real gem of a customer service leader, told me that we could only have store credit if we returned the starter. I told him that I had no faith in his services and would not buy anything there ever again - that they sold us a service that they could not deliver and no return policy in the world warrants the withholding of a refund in that circumstance. He berated me and my father in his store, so I decided to go another route. I filed a claim with the Better Business Bureau. The store manager/owner was quick to smooth things over and offered the refund. I repealed the BBB complaint as that was his condition for the refund, however after a full week of not refunding our money, I refiled the complaint. He finally issued the refund, saying that we got lost in the shuffle and he never intended to withhold the refund. Liar, but we did finally get our money back and my dealer said there was no permanent damage to my car... seriously, though? All that, when they could have been honest from the get-go and said (as every other install shop in town says) that they can't do a manual transmission remote start install. I guess there's a reason they are the only ones who will do it - they lied, they tried to steal our money when the lie was found out and they caused a lot of stress for me and my family for about a month while we fought with them. I realize this is my side of the story and I am biased, but I hope that my story will influence you enough to realize there are better businesses in town that you can work with instead of this incredibly low class establishment. If I can save even one customer from making the mistake we made, then my time spend in writing this review is well worth it! Good luck shopping :)
JimmyMackey commented on 'American Idol' Top 9: The recap
I really liked the Beatles song idea for this show and I’m glad that they had a lot of the more known songs rather than the more obscure ones. As usual, I watched Idol this morning while getting ready to go work at DISH, which is a convenient time for me. I use my DISH Hopper DVR because it skips the commercials automatically when I watch Idol recorded on FOX and that way I have time to see the results before I hear about it at work.
TimSanchez commented on 'American Idol' Top 9 results: The live blog
It was shocking to see Amber in the bottom three, but America got it right by sending Paul Jolley home. I work at DISH with a lot of Idol fans who were wondering if Lazaro would be going home, but his fans steeped up to save him. I missed part of last night’s episode, but caught up with it this morning since it was recorded on my DISH Hopper. I never worry about missing American Idol because my DVR automatically records FOX shows during primetime, and then I can watch it at my own pace.
This character will be JUST the ticket for this president. After all, for TWENTY years Obama sat in front of a racist, anti-semitic "preacher" who damned our nation repeatedly. It'll be just like old home week for the Obamas. Hey, maybe Obama's old Chicago pal, Bill "The Bomber" Ayres will drop by for the big shingdig. Neat-o.
Psy will appear in Washington soon.

What about Uiah Heep and Humble Pie? Two of my favorites. I don't know if they made it in but I doubt it because the Rock & Roll Hall of Shame seems to HATE the metal bands and only reluctently votes one in now and then. For that reason, they have no relevence to me nor do I have any wish to actually visit any of their venues. And Styx, I believe you said in the Con section of the comment that they were stilted or plastic (impression of the comment). Man, you need to go back and listen to them again. magician's birthday for one really sets them apart. Lance

pat443 commented on Silversun Pickups to Romney: Don't use our song
Since my wife is a singer, I've had to learn about music licensing. If the venue has an ASCAP/BMI license, they can play the song all day long. If the band wanted to maintain control over public performances, they should've kept it in their bedrooms. You sign with ASCAP, you abide by the contract. If it were for an ad, that’s a different type of license. My pet peeve: I am fed up with self-righteous musicians crying that nobody who disagrees with their asinine politics should be allowed to play their records. Any musician lucky enough to have fans willing to buy their music today should be kissing that fan’s feet, not whining about his politics. They richly deserve to lose half their audience and end up back at McDonald’s. BTW, I never heard of these idiots before, but thanks to their obnoxious preening, I've made a note to avoid their music in the future. They won’t have to worry that I’m playing their music while holding any opinions they disagree with. Happy?
flarrfan commented on Zac Brown breaks free on 'Uncaged'
Nine of eleven tracks from the new album are now being featured on K-ZAC Fresh Country on Live365. Personally, I love "Overnight" and "Island Song," though I suspect they will be among at least five tracks that won't see any success on the country charts. Pretty much everything on this album is really good. "Last But Not Least," a likely future number 1 country single, is still a very good song. Listen to K-ZAC by going to live365dot com and searching for Zac Brown Band
