Ocean’s Eleven

I was very excited about this weekend.

My plan was to show Teenagers from Outer Space. A Science Fiction passion project by Tom Graeff. Teenage aliens with ray guns that turn people into display skeletons, and giant lobsters, ahem, gargons. How can it be better?

As I sat down to dinner with my lovely family I was informed, no, we are not watching Teenagers From Outer Space.

No.

We’re watching Ocean’s Eleven.

Recognizing that I was hopelessly outnumbered, I retreated.

So this weekend, we’ll be running Ocean’s Eleven.

Without any Gargons.

Come out and see the movie with us.

No gargons.

A Movie

So here’s the deal.

I don’t know what to show for Saturday June 8. I have two options, I’m going to show one or the other, but I can’t decide.

So here’s what going to happen. You show up that Saturday, and we’ll flip a coin somewhere around 7pm, and then we’ll see the movie.

It’s going to be a good movie, I promise, I just don’t know which one.

So come around, and find out what we’re going to watch….

A New Projection Tower

My old projection tower was a cube. My projector sat on the top, and my computer said in the bottom.

It was a pretty good solution, worked fine in California, because, well, the weather is better there.

It fell apart last week, so I had to build a new one.

That’s what I have so far. I still need to paint it and install some equipment, and make a small stand to hold it up.

Ok, painted up and pressed into service. I need to build the base, and mount the equipment inside.

New stand
Stuff in, but not tied down yet.

I built the stand today. Reused a lot of the old stand. It’s ok, needs some paint for stability.
