Watching a little too much C.S.I., are we? Glad this isn't a video or you'd be talking about frame 253 of "the LOGAN film" and the magic screw.

1) There is a line across my forehead obviously where my hair dripped sweat on to it.
2) Hair is brushed up off forehead to keep sweat from pouring into eyes so you really can't see it.
3) Obvious sweat stain right in middle of my chest within the folds of the now too large shirt (not to mention the now-too-large-pants which are about to hit the floor, but will never happen because LOGANESS has permission to shoot me if pants ever drop in public, and this is close enough). Sorry, no underarm stains....Mitchum.
4) Hottest day so far, but my superior HVAC plan and skill kept the room to a cool 69 degrees.
5) You WISH you had legs like that.


I'm in Wendy's the other day for lunch and their new thing is boneless chicken wings. They have the big posters everywhere and on the placemat they put on the tray it says they are from "only tender, juicy 100% all-white breast meat." Shouldn't they be made of, you know, 100% WINGS?

You should not be eating fried chicken Breasts or Wings. I've got the bottle of Lipitor to prove it.

MAJOR PROGRESS THIS WEEKEND!!!!

Buddy Mike came over again on Saturday. We got the framing for the procenium done. LOGANESS left for the weekend and took the good camera, so I'm stuck with crappy phone pics. We were so busy wokring that we didn't take pics until we were done.

This is a picture of Mike. I took the picture.


This is a picture of me. Mike took the picture.


This is a picture of Mike AND me. I don't know who took the picture, but it wasn't Max.


Sunday, I got the screen wash cans installed. Installed a couple of stringers. And got the drywall hung. Here's what I got from the crappy phone camera. I'll update it when LOGANESS returns with good camera.

That's a low blow Hanesian.

I have two of those benches. Their weight limit is 250lbs.

Looks nice from the pic. I'd like to see it installed.

You just go ahead and keep thinking you're only inches away. We ALL know how THAT goes.

In the mean time, I managed to squeeze in a little work this weekend (after an all day trip Sat to NJ for a wedding shower that my brother and I went golfing instead)....went to HD and picked up the last outer edge corner bead for the rounded edge of the procenium and a couple of 10' lengths of extra wide outer corner beading. Installed and put on first coat of mud. Still need to do the inside corners.

WOOOO HOOOOO! Had a visit from the Loganator himself and he uncharasterically gave me his:



He liked the work that I had done so much that he had declared that I can have a day of rest...in fact, he suggested many days of rest (to allow him time to catch up I suppose)!

How many of you can claim a visit from the one and only?

Is it too late to get "LOGANED"? Probably not, since you still aren't done yet!

I started a build thread with big dreamy plans that are sure to slow me down, so you have a small chance of finishing before me: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1257652

I hope this ribbing from an enthusiastic new comer will motivate you!

Me? Are you talking to ME?

I'LL do the motivating around here. Which there hasn't been a whole heck of lot of recently, except for CJ. Maybe I need to come to all of your puny little hovels and motivate you in person. THAT seems to be what works. Just check out HIS thread.

AndreasMergner -
I'm not even sure I NEED to LOGAN you. You seem to be resigned to defeat as it is. But if that's what you want this early in your build, that's what you'll get. And it's been a while, so, AndreasMergner,

YOU'VE BEEN LOGANED!

What's that?

All I hear LOGAN saying is "I think you are bluffing about even starting your theater, so I don't have to even TRY and make progress."

We will see who is bluffing, oh yes, we will see.

Thanks for the LOGANING!

What happened here? Usually, LOGANING comes as a curse...a dreaded one at that. Now all of the newbies are asking for it and grateful to have it?

carboranadum -

Ponder your moniker, for you have chosen well. As once you were newbie and have now seen the way, so shall the newbies that come after. You are close, my friend, in many more ways than you know. Confusion is the path to understanding.

Being LOGANED is sort of a reverse scarlet letter in which to remind you of the things you haven't done.

Tom's basement must be a pretty undisturbed area of the house to have both crickets and grasshoppers....
