Daylight Saving Time 2008: Fall Back

Daylight saving time begins in the US this Sunday November 2 at 2AM. Don’t forget to set your clocks back.

dingoRUE Schedule Change

I had planned to do live recaps of both Prison Break Season 3 Episode 8 and Heroes Season 2 Episode 8 tonight as always. Unfortunately, the hotel room (just the room… the rest of the hotel is equipped for about 70 channels) I’m in doesn’t have either Fox or NBC (yet it does have Telemundo, Dr. Phil, and a Disney Channel movie that doesn’t look any good). I plan to work on recaps for both shows tomorrow.

However, I do still have access to ABC, so The Bachelor 11 Episode 8 recap should be able to be posted as scheduled. So much for that theory. Add in a power outage, and I’ll have to work on this later as well.

In the meantime, check out the previews for Prison Break and Heroes, posted earlier in the week as usual.

Daylight Saving Time: Fall Back

For the 2008 version of this post, click here.

This is a rare unrelated to TV post (except that it does screw up the TV times of shows for night owls), but this is one of those odd things I noticed people are searching for on this site, so I’m making this post to help those who are searching for the answer.

In the US, Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday November 4 at 2AM.

Heroes Blog Launches

I’ve been thinking about adding additional Heroes content to dingoRUE, as it is one of the most popular shows on this site. I didn’t want to overwhelm the site with Heroes coverage, however. So to that end, I’ve decided to launch a Heroes blog. dingoRUE will continue to feature its current Heroes coverage (recaps, previews, and the occasional news story), but regular Heroes updates will be on Hope to see you there. If this goes well, I will consider adding additional blogs for other shows.

No Recaps Tonight

I had intended to do a Biggest Loser recap tonight (or at least that’s the story I’m sticking to), but after getting hopelessly lost on the backroads of a town of 4000 (never did actually find the road I was originally looking for), that plan got derailed. I’ll see what I can do about recaps for Biggest Loser 4 episode 3, Beauty & The Geek 4 episode 2, and Reaper episode 1 over the next couple days.

In the meantime, having seen the promo for Journeyman during Heroes Season 2 episode 1 last night, I’ve decided that may be worth checking out, so I’m going to take a look at that and see whether I should bother with an episode 1 recap for it. While I’m at it, why not do a recap for Bachelor 11 episode 1 as well?

Bloggers Wanted

dingoRUE is a well known reality TV and Heroes blog, but in an effort to expand beyond that and become a broader source for TV news, recaps, and spoilers, positions for guest bloggers are now open.

Most shows that are on major networks in primetime will be considered for inclusion, but if you’ve got a show you’re just dying to write about and are not sure, feel free to ask.

If you’d be interested in writing about your favorite shows and sharing your views with other readers, head on over to the Bloggers Wanted page for more information.

Greetings and salutations

As the new owner of, I wanted to take this time to offer a brief introduction, with more to follow in the coming days. First of all, thanks to Greg for both the great work on this site and also the assistance in the transfer. I’m looking forward to sharing my views on the TV world and hearing what the community has to say as well.

I used to be a huge fan of The WB network (back when it was good and unCWish). During the summer of 2001, though, I latched onto Big Brother 2, and my fascination with reality TV only grew from there, to the point where I watch little else. From the mainstream to the ridiculous (often both at the same time), I’ve followed most reality programs in the US over the past few years, with the occasional British and Australian show, and of course Survivor South Africa and Amazing Race Asia.

Thanks to Big Brother, there’s always something to watch in the summer, and tonight I plan to kick things off with a live blog from the east coast.

Shows I’m currently watching: Big Brother 8, So You Think You Can Dance, On The Lot, and Kyle XY. If there’s something you’d like to see me cover, or if you just have any general suggestions, feel free to leave a comment and let me know.

State of the Blog Address

dingoRUE has been around for just shy of one year now and am I ever amazed at the progress the site has made in such a short period of time.

I originally started as a personal blog to talk about my passions: reality TV, TV shows, celebrities, Vancouver and whatever else I felt like saying at the time, and now look at it. In the short time the site has been up and running it has evolved from an unfocused mish-mash of things with an ugly theme to a TV and reality TV focused blog with a pretty theme (or I think so at least), a strong fanbase and a decent amount of traffic. Eleven months ago I would have never guessed things could have gone this way, but man am I ever happy they have. The popularity of the site is increasing, along with the traffic, with every passing month and things just keep getting better and better. dingoRUE is even starting to generate enough revenue every month to pay the TV and Internet bills, which is a huge bonus.

The site has also afforded me an opportunity I would have never had without it. As I briefly touched on yesterday in the Heroes episode 22 spoilers post, I am going to be featured in the June/July issue of BC Business Magazine as one of BC’s many budding bloggers. Thanks to the kindness of John Chow, an extremely succesfull BC based blogger who blogs about how to make money online, a writer for the magazine called me for an interview a few months ago. The interview lasted some 30-minutes and just this past monday the magazine sent a photographer to take some pictures for the article. I have got to say, as much as I love celebrities, I could never be one. Having a photographer hang around for four hours to try and get the perfect shot of ‘me in my natural state’ had me a little on edge, to say the least. But it will no doubt all be worth it once I get my hands on a copy of the magazine and see my goofy mug amungst some of BC’s finest businessmen.

This entire post is basically my incredibly long winded way of saying thank you! I’m all to happy to blog about my passions and, quite frankly, am amazed anyone reads what I have to write. None the less, I appreciate every readers involvement in and thank all of you, new and old, for supporting the site.
