Subwoofer

Posted February 18th, 2010 by Andy. Comment (0).

As a poor college student, great deals are always attractive.  No deal is better than a free subwoofer.  Originally I was quite fond of the Klipsch Synergy Sub-10 just so it would match with the other speakers, but then my cousin offered me a sub for free.  No way I could pass that up.  Turns [...]

Hyperize Review

Posted February 17th, 2010 by Andy. Comment (0).

So I mentioned a little while ago that I finally bought a pair of Nike Hyperizes.  I wanted to give an update on my experience with them.  So far I’ve got some positive things to say, and some negatives as well.
Fit- My feet are kind of wide, so the first time I played in them [...]

Home Theater Part II

Posted February 16th, 2010 by Andy. Comment (0).

So just coming out of college, I would imagine I’m not going to have a ton of money to spend on a speaker system.  So I’ve decided to go with what I believe is the best 5 set speaker package for the price.  It is the Klipsch Quintet III.  These speakers have been on the [...]

Home Theater

Posted February 15th, 2010 by Andy. Comment (0).

I’m really into home theater/audio equipment.  Once I get out of college and start my career, I’d like to start building my own home theater system.  First I’ll start off with the receiver.  I really like the Onkyo TX-SR607.  It’s a 7.2 receiver with 6 hdmi ports.  It’s a decently priced receiver so you get [...]

I got hyperized

Posted December 18th, 2009 by Andy. Comment (0).

So after much debating and frustration with my other pair of basketball shoes, I gave in and bought myself a pair of Nike Hyperizes.  I just tried them on yesterday and they feel really good.  I have yet to play basketball in them, because I’m only going to wear them indoors.  I’m excited to test [...]

Home again

Posted December 18th, 2009 by Andy. Comment (0).

I have returned home from school for Christmas.  I feel like I don’t really know too many people here in Bakersfield anymore.  It’s been over 4 years since I really lived here.  I don’t keep in touch with a lot of my high school friends, which is fine because I’ve made so many friends at [...]

Senior Project…Done!

I just finished my senior project today.  I was working on taking a standard exercise bike and modifying it so that when you pedal, it produces power.  I started this project in January and we just had the senior design expo tonight.  I am really happy to be done with this project.  It was a [...]

Rainy Days

Posted October 16th, 2009 by Andy. Comment (0).

This past Tues and Wed it rained super hard in SLO.  I think in my 4+ years here at Cal Poly, that was the hardest it has ever rained.  It didn’t stop the whole day.  Unfortunately my house’s power went out at about 4:15pm.  On a whim, my roommates and I decided to go play [...]

One year from now…

Posted October 7th, 2009 by Andy. Comment (0).

I was talking with my roommate Jared the other night before going to sleep about our futures after college.  Jared threw out the question: Where are we gonna be just 1 year from now? 1 year is not much time at all, but I realized that right now I have no idea where I am [...]

Family Reunions

This past weekend I went to a mini family reunion down in Cerritos, CA.  It was a reunion of my Dad’s side of the family.  There are a total of 7 brothers and sisters in his family so it’s a big group.  My Dad is actually the baby of the family, so I have some [...]
