I did not bid on it but this got the wheels spinning about how fun it might be to watch a movie on a projector from an old print. Does anyone else do this?

Looking For A New TV

I have had my current television (a 27-inch screen set from Sony) for a bit over a decade now. From time to time, I've thought about getting a new set...usually because I've always wished mine was just a bit larger. But then, I usually figure I can't afford it and end my thinking with "I'll just keep this one until it blows up". But now I've done something that's going to really require my buying a new set...I've ordered a Playstation 3. Of course, getting a new video game console doesn't…

The Terror: Scarier Than Anything I've Ever Seen

When the first scenes began to unfold in lurid color on my screen, I was dubious, but that was nothing compared to the deep and troubling doubt that soon followed. A very young Jack Nicholson appeared, speaking lines that seemed stolen from the cheapest gothic romance. I believe his first two lines had a touch of an accent, something vaguely European to go with his Napoleonic soldier’s uniform, but the accent was gone by the third line.

In 1968, when Stanley Kubrick's masterwork 2001: A Space Odyssey was released, I was 11 and my grandfather was 55. The pre-release hype on the film had been so big that he took me to the Tampa premiere of the film. He and I had never been to a film… Continue
