    At the wrong end of the country, but wow, that's something! What do the neighbors think?

    Believe it or not, our neighbors are usually the first to ask when we're going to show movies again, LOL. We've talked to all of them and they say it's not disruptive. (Their houses must be insulated better than ours. [face_laugh])

    Jebus, that's a big screen.

    I remember helping you put it up in 2003, but that was in the arse end of nowhere. Do the neighbours not complain?

    We've never had a single complaint, believe it or not! It's amazing, but there are times when I thought it was too loud, but then you go around to the front of the house and you can barely hear it. The speakers are about three feet off the ground and aimed properly, so I think the fence and the house trap the noise pretty well. The neighbors tell me that the only time they can hear it inside is when there's a base rumble.

    So, what are we going to watch?

    I would like to see Fantastic 4 and Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. I enjoyed the 1st one and have not seen the 2nd one.

    Of course, any Star Wars would be great.
    Maybe some Indiana Jones, since the new movie is coming out this year.
    Maybe The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe since the new Prince Caspian movie is coming out on 5/16.
    Of course, some old standby movies would be good, too: (Ghostbusters 1 & 2; The Goonies; The Lost Boys).
    I love romantic comedies, but I would probably not succeed in getting those on the screen. (Steel Magnolias; My Best Friends Wedding; Forrest Gump; Romancing the Stone; Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves)
    Some others I like are: all of the Batman movies; all of the X-Men movies; all of the Spiderman movies; The Back to the Future movies; The Pirates of the Carribean movies; The Incredibles; The Wizard of Oz. I could keep going but that is enough.

    These are just a few of my suggestions. Can't wait until the backyard is open again!

    Here are a few I will throw out there!

    Transformers
    X-Men
    Spiderman
    Superman
    Batman
    Hellboy
    I am Legend
    300
    Matrix
    Fantastic 4
    Cloverfield
    Narnia
    The Illusionist
    Harry Potter And The Order of the Phoenix
    Or we can all take "something" and see if we can figure out what in the blue milk "The Fountain" was all about!

    I'll be there, if you don't mind the possibility of my showing up rather late. ^_^
    I'm up for Transformers or Harry Potter, personally. :p

    We've had a couple of votes for The Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Transformers. I'm cool with any of those choices.

    Let's hope we get to do this, folks. So far, the weather isn't looking so good for next weekend.

    Oh, and the screen is down right now. I'm going to have to do some serious repairs. I tipped it over to redo the rigging, which has to be done every year to year-and-a-half. Well, when I tipped it, I forgot to tie the braces back, so one of them swung forward as it was tilting. Since gravity had taken over, I had no choice but to let it fall. There are about six or seven fittings that'll have to be reworked. Other than that, the damage wasn't as bad as I expected. But, this gives me a chance to make some improvements to the design. (Since the wind has changed considerably in the last couple of years, I need to overhaul some design flaws to make it stronger.

    We can rebuild it. We can make it better.

    Faster, more intense...

    :D

    Dear Weather Channel,

    Make up your damned mind about this weekend's forecast. You're making me lose my mind. Again.

    Love,

    Tim
