Good call Rocker..



Wife got me a sound bar for Christmas..Hooked it up after dinner and turned on TESB..

It was a toss up between that or Spiderman 2 (Tobey/Raimi)...



The carbonite freezing scene; Vader absorbing Han's blaster shot; the asteroid field sequence...

And the iconic THX run up are all great ways to test your sound set up.

A nice one is the opening credits to Superman.

Just about anything from John Williams.

I need to try the liftoff scene from Apollo 13.

Apollo 13 has some great audio for sure. I would assume the first Iron Man would be a good test as well. Think I'll run that one when I get home on Friday.

You do the same.

Taking the kids to Repticon in Pensacola on Saturday.

Going to church for the first time in years Sunday. Easter ham and family in the afternoon.

Will probably fart around in the pool tomorrow. Got the house to myself.

Easter blessings to all.

Not planning on a fun weekend. Princess is sick, and my male critters are testing Wifey's limits. On top of that, my best bro has a 15 year old daughter that has chosen to not be a part of his family any longer. I've offered for her to stay with us for a while, but she's determined to insert herself into her biological father's life. Poor girl just can't realize he doesn't give a damn about her.

I fly home tomorrow evening, and I plan on ignoring everyone for at least 3 hours; so I can catch up on a few things (and have a deep glass of bourbon).

While I don't don't do anything special for Easter (just another day to me), I wish all of you that celebrate this day, good tidings.

It is certainly a beautiful area. I love taking drives along the Parkway. Especially in spring and fall. Great pull over views all along the way as well. RA's is good. I've eaten there on a number of occasions. Over the past couple of years, we've enjoyed the openings of quite a few good eateries...many of them in the downtown area. El Jefe. Bootlegger's. Fifth & Federal. Kegney Brothers. Water Dog. Jimmy's on the James. Glad you enjoyed your visit.

Hey! One of my all time favorites!!! Here's my favorite (actually now listening to the orchestral version again it's a 50-50 tie... Something about letting the strings tell it...) version (with the choral arrangement):



I swear this composition is a gift to all human beings. If you don't feel something listening to this song check your pulse!

Thanks for reminding me JG!

I won't bore you with all the details ... but one picture kind of sums it all up.

We've gone tubing at Snowflex. Had a blast. It's really cool at night. You can pretty much see the place from anywhere in Lynchburg...day or night.

Beach island on the Gulf side of St. Petersburg - just north of St. Pete Beach. There are a bunch of them that connect all the way up to Clearwater, like Indian Rocks, Madeira, Sand Key, etc.

Treasure Island was the one that they honorarily re-named "Revis Island" for a week or so.
