It took a few hours but I finally got the new 3D projector mounted, aligned, and calibrated in our home theater… and it looks great! Not only is the 3D aspect fun, but it’s also a step up from the previous projector in general, as it’s 1080p instead of just 720p. The other projector looked wonderful, but this one is even better. I look forward to watching many movies on it in the new year.
(Anyone want to buy the old one? Still for sale, if the price is right.)Tweet
To say goodbye to the classic attraction, I rode Jaws six times in a row at Universal Studios, recording video, audio, and taking pictures all the way through. I’m working on a full tribute to the ride and its surrounding Amity area, which will close Jan. 2, 2012 to make way for something new. Whether it’s Harry Potter, Transformers, Madagascar, or something else, I will always miss Jaws, if only a little. It’s a ride I’ve enjoyed for the past 20 years or so.Tweet
This is my home theater projector. 720p HD. LCD. It has treated me well over the last 6 years or so. But now a new one is on the way, with newer technologies built in. It should arrive early next week. I’m not sure if I’ll keep it, but if I do, it’ll be a nice early Christmas present for myself. More to come. (Anyone want to buy my old one?)Tweet
We have a 8.5-foot tall Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in our house. I busted him with my PKE meter. Or… Michelle bought him from 80sTees.com. His smile tells me he’s happy, but his eyes tell me he’s angry. I suspect he’ll only get angrier once my ghost trap arrives soon! Bustin’ makes me feel gooood…Tweet
During a late night Walmart run, I spotted some extraordinarily silly snack cakes renamed to promote Transformers: Chocwave Shockwave and Snoballimus Optimus Prime. There were Bumblebee Twinkies too, but those didn’t have a “clever” name. And no, I didn’t buy them. Yuck.Tweet
