    We are re-financing our house and the appraiser was just here. His first question: What is that thing in your back yard? [face_laugh]

    We'll enjoy A New Hope on an LCD video projector with a screen at least 8 feet across.

    Amateurs...

    So, does having a 20'+ wide movie screen in your backyard help, hurt, or not affect your houses value..?

    You took the words out of my mouth, Lin! Where's Sal to do a bit of sarcasm when I need him. Guess I'll have to do it, so here goes:

    [baby talk]Aw....Look at the itty-bitty screen. Ain't it soooo cuuuuute! Awwwwwww! I think it just spit up![/baby talk]

    Hell, ours was 8' tall in its first incarnation. Aren't y'all thankful you have Clark W. Griswold for your FanForce President?

    I think we should just finish the PVC Death Star. Then we could go blow their little screen to smithereens.

    I think we shoould be like the borg and assimilate thier screen- no, wait- that's Star Trek!

    Had an idea- (yes, be afraid- be very afraid..!)

    I picked up Shrek today and it came with a 3-D dvd as well. I think it's the same thing as the 4-D ride at Universal- if so it's pretty cool, and not very long. If I can get ahold of enough 3-D glasses would you guys like to show it before Galaxy Quest like we did with ANH and Batman:Dead End? Might be something cool for folks with kids to see/do.

    BTW- the Shrek 2-pak was only $16.99 at Suncoast in the HR Mall. I've also seen it at Toys-R-Us by the M.O.M. for $19.99.

    -------------------------------

    Or only $11.99 for both if you have a $5.00 Replay Gift Certificate, which I got and plan on usin'.

    I'm all for a 3D adventure on Movie Night!! YAY!

    "Der poppin' corn goes...3D!!"
    (Muppets Take Manhattan, Chef reference...bork bork bork.)
    OH! The Muppets need to do a take-off of Star Trek with the BORK, instead of Borg. Yeah, that'd be cute.

    Sounds cool, I'm game for 3-d.

    That's funny about the screen, we should send them a pic of the screen in an email just saying 'Who's your daddy?'

    Everybody has got to start somewhere!

    I'll get with John at 3-D paper Optics and see if I can get ahold of some more glasses. I've got a few at home, and the viedo came with 4. What do you think- 3 dozen or so? That's about what we had this last one. Oh, the 3-D DVD runs 15 minutes and is widescreen.

    Oh- saw a Southland Greyhound Park commercial last night after 3rd Rock that had Antone in it! I died laughing. He's holding all this cash as the camera comes towards/past him. Kev and I called him up today and messed with him about it! Kev was like, "Dawg, you shouldn't be flashing all that cash on TV, man!"

    Just heard back about the 3-D glasses- have 50 pairs on the way! I watched the 3-D Shrek this weekend and there are a few Star Wars references in it so it'll fit right in!

    C'mon, John- lots of 'grape juice' is how Tim talked Traci into letting us invade their backyard once a month!

    Lots and lots of begging, I'm sure. I'm tellin' ya, when their kids grow up they'll say, "My daddy and mommy are cooler'n your mommy and daddy! WE have a movie screen; you only have a big tv." There may be fights, but Tim and Traci's kids will always win: THEY have the bigger screens!!

    *Now understands why his mom and dad weren't so cool, and why he got beat up in school...no movie screen!*

    Would we get arrested for showing dirty movies on there?

    I have this documentary on pig farms and they get in mud and stuff...why? what'd you think I meant?

    Great. Remind me of Furries... before bedtime.... and when I'm lit. I'm gonna have nightmares now.


    Kev: I wanted to show Caligula, but Traci said no.
