@jdc:  be careful of those guitar shops, it's worse than the internet for me (spent four hours in there today)

I could only do that in the audio shops which is why I pretty much avoid going to the Audio mall these days.  I just been toying with the idea of picking up a guitar lately so sometimes walk by the shop near by, its been a long time though since I tried to play other than occasionally strumming somebody else's guitar.

1. A bike. Used but not old and in very good shape. And I love it. I can't remember ever having a bike where everything worked.

2. Shoes. I always forget how great it feels to try on, buy and wear new ones that fit really well and still have that intense leather smell. I don't care much for buying clothes but the process of selecting shoes is fantastic.

Wondering if it's better to buy a Google Chromecast and see if I can use it to stream content from my laptop to my TV (I think it has HBO Go too, which Xbox One and PS4 don't have yet for some ungodly reason), or just CINECAST!ing subscribe to the WWE Network for 6 months.

Chromecast is quite cheap and I dig it for casting certain things they don't have apps for on the consoles, like videos from TV channel websites. That's how I watched season one of Korra.

Can I beam anything from my laptop's browser to the TV through it, or just certain things? I don't think it will play anything I download or whatever, though it would be amazing if it did because subs CINECAST! me up, and I imagine I'll still have to slam down the money for Hulu+ if I want to use Hulu through it, but I've toyed with the idea of getting one for a while.

There's a plugin for Chrome that allows you to cast any tab to the Chromecast (doesn't take over the computer either). Works pretty great.

The Chromecast is seriously a better media-center than anything else I've ever used, including my PS3. I use Plex to stream movies from my computer and control it with my phone. It's amazing.
