Watched MIB International not typically the type of movie I watch but I found it very entertaining and the soundtrack gave the room and the equipment a workout which it passed with flying colors

Today I am going to work in the shop need to make a pool cue holder, dart board cabinet, and work on the digital movie poster frame. Tonight a double feature Midway and Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom

Oddly enough, I spent most of the last week watching YouTube videos in there, lol.

I am working from home, so my hours haven't really changed.

I have had a few health issues affecting my ears and eyes lately as well, so I have taken some breaks in the theater with the lights off and nothing playing just to give those senses a break. A soundproof room that is 100% light controlled has some good uses...

Use of entire Ht with PJ is pretty much the same as usual which is sometime mid-evening I settle in for some cable tv and/or some steaming. Being hunkered-down I'm using my ht increasingly for listening to music and reading sans the display. Given this appears to going to continue for a while longer and that HQ immersive movies only account for 20% or less of my ht use, I've decided it's a good time to upgrade all the speakers in my system with greater emphasis on audiophile quality vs "theater impact".

My theater is at the beginning stage of construction, so can't say I am using it, really. Building it.

However, this would have been the perfect time to have had my last theater. I had set it up so I could stream WebEx to the big screen. Used the phone for audio and just sat in the comfy chair with a 120" WebEx screen. Like MTAC in the NCIS show.

I'm on video meetings more than 50% of my day these days. Sure do miss my jumbo WebEx setup.

It appears my hypocrisy knows no bounds.

My wife and I got 3 episodes in and she wanted to stop, because she her job essential and stressful and she said doesn't want to watch it right now. She likes it, just doesn't want to deal with it in her mind. I may watch the rest and let her catch up later. I like it. Funny how it it's not actually filmed in the Ozarks, but they have shots of the lake they use for the show.
