I just heard that producer/DJ Avicii died, he's heavily represented in my "late night programming" playlist.  He was only 28.

So I finally swapped out my old Yamaha receiver for a Denon S730H. I needed something a little bit more modern to do the ARC and my old one was just before all that. I saw Amazon had them for like 20% off so I decided to get one and joked with my wife that they'll probably have a new version out as soon as I buy it. And sure enough it looks like they just released the 740. I compared the two and it doesn't really look like I need any of the new features so I guess I timed it right.

I just started setting it up this morning so I'll connect everything this weekend and run the calibration and see how it turns out, but so far I think it'll make everything work better. I need to run through some audio tests and see how the sound is but I'm sure it'll be sufficient for the price.

I looked at a couple other ones but with this one being so cheap it was worth giving it a shot first.

I just got a Roku Ultra too so we're going to be cord cutters now too with YouTube TV and some other streaming services.

Remember when the Utah Jazz destroyed the Chicago Bulls in the 1996 World Superbowl?

I thought it got cancelled

Oh no... really?  I sure hope not because Season 2 was a cliff-hanger!  :(

My phone does exercise tracking.  When we went to Disney/Universal we put between 4 and 120 miles a day on the legs.

 :shock: 120!

It's a long walk between Disneyworld and Universal Studios.

Also, I don't really love or hate Westbrook. :D

I tend to root for guys that a lot of people hate, especially if the reasons for the hate are dubious. Westbrook falls into that category just enough that I do kinda want him to succeed, but not enough that I actively root for him.

LeBron on the other hand, is entirely there, and so I've ended up wanting Cleveland (and previously Miami) to win when it got down to the finals.

Been watching/following the NBA for 33 years, since the Kings moved to Sacramento. The Kings were only good for about 6 of those years but I still follow the rest of the league. It's definitely gotten more fun/exciting in the last 5 years or so.

For now I'm pretty busy, so I don't watch much (especially since I no longer get the Kings games where I live). I do have sports people in my twitter feed and occasionally I'll listen to an NBA related podcast so that's mostly how I end up keeping up to date on what's happening. I'll watch playoff games here and there and probably a lot of the finals.
