Oh, yes. That time "video killed the radio star". But, several decades later, Youtube killed music television as well.

I remember those times. I was 5 years old and my parents were just equipping their apartment. There was literally nothing in our living room but small colour TV placed on a floor. MTV was one of the few foreign channels we had. I remember top 20, songs by Paul McCartney, Ace of Base, Duran Duran, etc. Afterwards the provider ceased to provide MTV channel and offered German VIVA instead. But it was good as well. The "reality shows" and talk shows killed it after 2004. I have managed to receive MTV broadcasting since 2009. But it has been rubbish since.

I have a motorised set-up and can get all the major sats from 42°E - 0.8°W. There's a few providers carry BBC channels such as BBC Entertainment & BBC Knowledge as well as BBC News. I'm not sure if these channels show Top Gear as only the news channel is available in Blighty.

Anyway, series 22 starts tonight on BBC2.

Is MTV still banned up there to protect MuchMusic/Musique Plus? Canadian Content, eh?

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

"Blizzard warning" just issued for New York and Boston (for tomorrow and Tuesday); 6-12 inches (15-30 cm) expected here.

The National Weather Service is talking about 20 - 30 inches for the New York City area now. They already call it an historic blizzard.

I thought NYC was much more subject to heavy snowstorms.

You can go years without storms that big in the big cities on the Eastern Seaboard. Although, frankly, they seem much more frequent over the last decade or so.

Heavy snow's more common a bit inland and in the Midwest. It also doesn't get as cold here - thank God - as it does inland at this latitude. The Appalachians protect us a bit. But this storm, once it gets over the mountains, is supposed to (a) take in a lot of moisture from the ocean and (b) stall so that it takes its time getting out of here.

Nothing compared to Buffalo some weeks before Christmas.

Weather Channel a few hours ago was saying 18 to 24 in New York City, the immediate vicinity, and farther north and east. 24 or more in eastern New England (including Boston). 12 to 18 in much of New Jersey (including my mother's area, 20 miles or so west of the city), 6 to 12 here. Blizzard warnings for eastern New Jersey, New York and on north; not here.

But snowstorms are notoriously prone to not doing what they're predicted to.

Watched weather forecasts on four Philadelphia stations and the Weather Channel. We're getting anywhere from 5 to 15 inches depending on who you believe, or who's guessed right. (One of the local stations said the "confidence index" - a term that's new to me - on this forecast is low...too many variables.)

1831 cartoon featuring "the traffic of the future" with steam-powered vehicles:



In reality, the use of steam power remained exclusive for rail trasport, while steam-powered road vehicles never went beyond the experimental stage.

Never heard of them.

But it's quite a large city, you know. :-)

Weather geeks may be interested to know that the Weather Channel's live-streaming. Don't know if it works outside the U.S., though.
