As a very young boy, Kareem watched the news with his Dad on a daily
basis and continued to follow and be involved in everything related
to the current events of the world, politics, business, sports, and of
He was also a master at the DVR/Tivo,
and after his visit with us, we would find that our DVR had been
programmed for the shows he wouldn't want us to miss.
Kareem was a pro when it
came to recording Television shows, so he was sure to never miss an
episode. Back in the VHS recording days, he was one of
the first, I'm sure, who made good use of those VHS tapes,
recording over and over on them, and having stacks and stacks of
VHS tapes with recorded shows of days gone by.
Whenever possible, he would
arrange his schedule so he could be among the first to see a
show when it aired for the first time, just like he wanted
to be one of the first to see a newly released movie,
cutting classes and standing in long lines to make it
a hit show aired before his time and it was a classic, Kareem was
often a fan - like with the Twilight Zone, which he watched
the marathon came on, usually on Thanksgiving.
