Happy holidays all!

Anyone want to mention fun HT presents that they received?

I got a Nintendo Wii and brought it back with me while visiting all the relatives. The games for the wii have you shaking the controllers and the games themselves are amusing/light-hearted (e.g. Rayman rabbid rabbits). I had my dad and cousins and even my sister playing (who normally doesn't play video games).

A lunch sounds like a great idea.

Bleair,

I was thinking of getting a PS3 for games and the blu ray, but I think the family would get more out of a Wii, maybe I will look around for one today.

I know it's really short notice, but would anybody be up for a dinner get together tonight at my place (Burbank?)

My wife and girls are out of town, and that doesn't happen often.... if anybody is interested let me know...

PS There is a slight possibility I may have to work tonight, but if I have to cancel, I will know in the next couple of hours....

Still, if you do end up not having to work tonight, then I would love to get together. I'll PM you with my phone number and you can give me the particulars.

A quick thank you to FilmMixer for the hospitality yesterday. Didn't mean to keep you past midnight, but good conversation makes it easy to lose track of time. And thanx for the cream-cheese brownies (eating one for breakfast as I type this).

I got the kids a Wii as well....got really lucky at finding one at retail near the office! I am pretty impressed with what its capabilities for $250. Got it hooked up to my wireless network.

Also got some nice powered speakers that are hooked up to it right now too.

They don't compare that well to my Ascends, but for two-channel gaming, they are great. When the kids are not around I will hook up the Wii to my system.

I didnt know this forum was this organized! Sweet! People on the west coast! lol No, but really, it would be awsome to get together with some of the locals and swap ideas. In the scheme of things I'm still relatively a novice, but I believe I've done ok for myself and my budget. If, and after, we get together, my place is open for HD gaming and movie viewing (360 and ps3) as well as "what not to do" seminars lol.... (critiquing my system)... and tweaking ideas.... Being 18 I dont have anyone around that knows about this stuff, so getting together with experienced people would be great. Mike

Man, that is lots of fun toys. I'm so there.

Have you watched any particularly good "boom" movies with your upgraded gear? I watched Hustle and Flow recently, and it has several impressive scenes for audio. I realize the movie has been out for a while, but I missed it first time around. The audio was better than I expected. Not just rap stuff either. There is some good thumping baaaass in the intro, an impressive gospel choir piece, and when they first have the character Shug singing her vocals solo as they lay down tracks it is was really impressive.

I'd like to try and make it. It will really depend on when it will be. I am moving into the new house this next weekend and I'll have my hands full with honey-do's, but I might be able to escape for a day.

I'll keep track of this thread and let you know. If I can make it I'll bring my PS3 for some BD ackshown as well.

Take care,

That looks really sharp.

Do you plan to get all fancy and add some small low voltage spots in the ceiling to shine on it?

Hopefully you have it secured well to the wall so the bass doesn't set it free. [All that house crumbling bass ]

Even Ridley has to eat. Suggest Lancers to him. It will be a good break from that boiled English food. I'll bring my copy of 'Duelists' along for him to autograph.
