Buffalo Getting A 24-Hour News Channel

Time Warner Cable has finally announced that Buffalo will be getting its own 24-hour TWC news channel.

After Adelphia got the boot in Buffalo and Time Warner took over, we knew it was only a matter of time before the Queen City got a TWC news channel. Part of that was because we heard that they were from our Time Warner Cable news friends here in Jamestown.

And speaking about that, Chautauqua County is pretty lucky to have at least one tv news station, even if only available through Time Warner, that can report on the area and local sports. Plus, it's a good training ground for reporters looking to get a start in the business. Having worked in radio news, Jamestown is a great place to get experience.

My hope, since the article mentioned that the Buffalo station will be serving Buffalo and Western New York is that Cable 8 News here in Jamestown isn't going away. It will be wait and see for now, I guess.

Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is no joke. Tomorrow we try to escape it and find some peace and nature in the (literally) Smoky Mountains.

A couple of years ago, I took the month of February off from Facebook under the premise that the time I wasn't wasting on Facebook could be channeled into other things. I blogged quite a bit, I read a few books, got out a little, and generally tried to avoid looking at anything on there. It wasn't perfect, by far. A fair amount of friends still use Facebook to communicate about social events and general happenings, so I was out of the loop on all of that, thus defeating part of my goal to be in better touch with hanging out with them. Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College

In light of this week's Presidential election, here's an update on why the Electoral College is awful. Watch the original video after this short update:

[UPDATE] The YouTuber went back and did ANOTHER update to correct himself on some issues. It's also worth watching especially because one part of it reminded me of the awful governing situation we have in New York State that is referred to as "3 men in a room."
