New music this week, Johnny Cash: Life Unheard. This is a partnership between Sony and Life Magazine which includes rare solo acoustic recordings from the House of Cash studio in Nashville as well as live tracks taped at the Newport Folk Festival, the White House, and more. If you’re a really big Cash fan you can pair this with Johnny Cash: Life Unseen which is an illustrated biography
Out on Blu Ray this week is Olympus Has Fallen. It stars Morgan Freeman Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhardt. It’s basically the first Die Hard, only instead of Nakatomi Plaza, the target is the White House. Eckhardt plays the president and Gerard Butler the only man who can save his life.
So the tech toy of the week this week is a TV. It’s not even that fancy of a TV. It’s not 3D, it’s not one of those 4K sets, and it won’t wash your dishes. It is, however a full HD, 32 inch LDC, flat screen and it’s got all of the modern ports, but that’s not what makes it special
Made by LG, the “Classic TV” is it’s everything you want in a modern TV, but in a style that evokes the retro sets of the 70s and 80s. It has a wood casing, a pair of dials, three real buttons, a speaker off to the right side and a stand with feet that look like rabbit ears. It looks awesome, but it’s still thin and light.
It’s pricy, 754 dollars for what is still just a 32 inch TV, but it supposedly comes with a matching coffee maker. I say supposedly because I haven’t seen a picture of it yet because unfortunately, the set is only available in South Korea right now, but if you want to import it you can, and if it’s popular enough, I’m sure they’ll give it a shot here.
