I'm probably gonna ditch my Apple TV gen 2 for this. I have a PS4 but my wife hates using it to get to Netflix and Amazon Prime stuff.

I should be able to unload the Apple TV for decent $ since it's the most jailbreak friendly Apple TV version.

I believe the only way is to use your Kindle to browse. There should be a 'borrow-able' section or somesuch.

You can also log into Netflix on a PC, go to your accounts page and force a signout of all devices. We had the same thing happen when our house was broken into two years ago. They got our Kindle Fire and our ipad.

Just did this with an old white 360 I had laying around. All you need is the system, power cord, AV cable and 1 controller. Took me 10 minutes at the CS counter. Walked out with a shiny new Vita to use with my PS4.

PS4 and AssCreed IV out for delivery! Apparently my LEGO Marvel pre-order was too late for the first shipment. Still stuck in limbo.

And I may be mistaken. It may be my code I paid for supplied via email. Damnit.

Sweet! Just got shipping confirmation. Also just got a promo code from Amazon for a free year of PS+. Already had one year coming with the PS4.

PS4 in "Shipping Now" status from Amazon. 

AssCreed IV scheduled for Saturday (but probably tomorrow) and LEGO Marvel SH with no date yet. Grrr.

Really wanting to pick up a VITA for the remote play.

So after almost two months of intense, four and five nights a week rehearsals, 'RENT' opened this past Friday. It was fucking awesome! Turns out I'm pretty good at this shit. icon_biggrin The rest of the cast is phenomenal and has really taken me in and helped me adjust from the rock band world to theater. It helps that 'RENT' is pretty much a rock show.

Here are some pics -

Hit a BB bench press PR yesterday morning - 220 lbs. I'm 6', 188 right now.

This was at the end of 5 work sets of 6 @ 165, followed by singles of 185, 195, 200, 210 and then the PR of 220. I *think* I could have put up 225 or 230 but as I lift alone in my basement I get a little leery of pushing it too far. I'll probably try for 225 next Monday.

I used to lift regularly but injured my shoulder in March of 2012 and it took almost a year for it to get to the point that I could lift heavy stuff again. It didn't help that we had a new baby in March of 2012 and I didn't do my prescribed at home rehab. Add in shitty sleep schedule and diet and you get a fat tiktokman.

I'm 41 years old, 6' tall. I started this year at 213 lbs.

I use the myfitnesspal app on my iphone (started January 5th) to track my calories and started lifting again in February. My target is to lift 3 days a week in the early morning.

Typical workout (with olympic free weights) -

Bench - 5x5 (2 warm up sets, 3 work sets)

Sqaut - 3x8

Deadlift - 3x5

Chin ups - As many as I can do in a row until I get to 10. Once I get to where I can do 10 in a row I'll up the count to 20. I'm currently at 7. Pretty sure I could do more if I weren't doing them after benches and squats/deads.

Miscellaneous dumbbell work as time allows

When I started the weight was fairly light so I'd do squats and deads on the same day. Now that they've gotten heavier I squat Monday and Friday, deadlift on Wednesday.

I've now started doing some body-weight circuits 3 times a week as well. My wife wanted to start working out again so I do that with her MWF after the kids are in bed. We've just started week 2.

As of yesterday I'm down 23 lbs on the year, weighed in at 190.

My target weight is 185 but I may re-access that when get there and try for 180. After I lose the fat I want I'm going to start a bulk and try and pack on some more muscle. That should be fun.

Holy SHIT! I'll be playing Roger Davis in our local Muni's production of 'Rent' this September.

I went through the initial audition a week ago Sunday, singing 'Your Eyes' from the show and the director called me over to their table right after and asked if I was available for a callback the following Sunday. Then I didn't hear anything more until Saturday night at 9:30. I was just about ready to write it off.

Callbacks were Sunday from 12:30 to 5:30. There was so much talent in the room, most of them with many years of theater experience. I've never done a play or musical in my life. I've been a rock band singer/guitarist off and on for the last 20 years. It was pretty intimidating. Thankfully most of them were pretty cool and very supportive.

I sang two solo tunes, 'Will I' and then 'One Song Glory', along with some ensemble stuff. I felt like I nailed them but you never know how other people hear it.

Last night was the casting night for all four of the Muni's shows. All the directors get together, decide who gets who and what over a few hours and then the calls begin. I had my phone right by my side and was checking it every few minutes to make sure it was on and the ringer was nice and loud. While chatting online with other hopefuls my phone beeped that I had a voicemail. THE FUCKER NEVER RANG! It was the director of Rent asking me to call him back. I had figured I'd maybe get a supporting role. I called him back, got his voicemail. GAH! Just after I hung up he called me back and asked if I wanted to play the part of Roger Davis, one of the leads. FUCK YES I DO!

I'm still in shock.

Overall, pretty awesome.  Work is predictably work, but everything else is awesome.  Like I am.

All you needed was a 'True story.' tacked on at the end and the Barney Stinson persona would have been complete.

I'm back on the lifting train after a month off due to shoulder injury/new baby-dom. The shoulder is finally getting better but I scaled WAY back on the weights except for my deadlift which I kept at 250. Dropped the bench from 185 down to 75 and increased the reps. My squat I dropped down to 115 but will ramp it up fairly quickly. Wanted to make sure my shoulder wouldn't be an issue and so far it's not.

Heh...yeah, still alive. Went to the Dr. today. Got myself a nice 'impingement' with added possible bonus of a slight tear. He gave me a pamphlet with some rehab exercises in it and said if it isn't better in 3 weeks to come back in for a shot. Fun. He did clear me to lift with the caveat of dropping the weight on the benches. I'll probably drop the squat weight down some as well and up the reps.

Add in a nearly 4 week old baby and you can guess what my workout life is like. I go back to work a week from today. Hoping a return to a somewhat normal schedule will help me get back downstairs to the weights on a regular basis again.

Heh. I love deadlifts. Still waiting for my shoulder to heal so I can lift heavy again.

Heavy shit continues to get heavier. Workout felt good this morning. Thought 190 was gonna be my wall for 5 reps on the bench press but I got through two sets. Hoping to make it two more weeks before hitting the wall. Then all 3 big lifts will be over 200lbs.

38  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The 2012 Health Improvement Thread on: March 09, 2012, 04:25:13 PM

And another week in the books. I'm scared of the 5lb increase in my bench on Monday. I think I'm close to the wall for good form reps.

I've started doing this on Tuesday/Thursday now -




It definitely works the core muscles and will hopefully help me with my joint pain and flexibility.

Missed my lifting this morning. Gonna hit it right after work.

I did try some benches at lunch to see if I could bench kratz. I put up 205 (my weight) without much warmup. Guessing I could hit 215 if I was fully prepped. I either gotta get stronger or kratz needs to lose more weight.
