Anyone ever see "High Fidelity" some years ago with John Cusack as an LP lover and record store owner? Pretty good movie.

Now I understand that there's a movie coming out, written by a Clifford Irving,
about a high end home theater afectionado from Florida with a Cinemascope screen, THX theater, etc. and the travails of his love life.

"High Fidelity 2" is the early name, but probably will be changed. Don't know if John Cusack will be in this one.

Just saw the movie clip on You Tube.

Actually, I understand that the main protagonist is a CRT luver and upgrader for years until he finally switches over to the digital side more recently.

Its a low budget independent film which will start out, and probably never get past, art houses.

The writer, Clifford Irving, was very well known at one time. He had a best seller some years ago.

I heard that Richard Gere is gonna play the main protagonist later in life.

If its as good as the first High Fidelity, then I wanna see it.

A best seller, wasn't it? And his writing of the biography was made into a movie itself.

No, not really, I just wanted to amuse you..

Besides, if it ain't posted on April 1 before noon, it's not considered to be an April Fool's joke.

HA right back atcha!

"I am a half century and a half on Saturday!"

Would that be 50.5, 55, or 75??

Even when I'm not having a particularly good day, I am at least having a day!

Sure, I'll take that title. Seems that others here have shortened your title already for me and have taken off the 'April'.

The final title will be 'Big Pussy', if it is a true independent film, that is.

Most prominent years ago was the multiple Aerial subs that blew out my window and caused some foundation damage. Everyone bought that one.

I think my last one two years ago was the universal blu ray, HD DVD,
SACD, DVD-A, DVD that had folks signing up to beta test.

Knowing that Steve does this every year I was wondering if he was referring to the life and travails of Cineramax in Florida.

Actually, its the fictionalized account based on a well known high end audio and now home theater buff, now retired, who hangs out at AVS. Guest starring the Bay Area Audio Society.

Having just gotten back from Costa Rica, I am now looking to start a chapter there as in all honesty it is a place that I could live several months out of the year. Temp was 90-98 every day with not a cloud in the sky. Reasonably priced and perhaps 1/2 as much as Hawaii in the long run. The country was rolling in tourists most being American and many looking for places to live. The country hasn't yet discovered the value of ocean front and/or ocean view property. Our dollar goes a very long way there
