(Coming back up for air...)
So I'm moved. Man, what a lousy experience. The lender dropped the ball so bad. We were on the phone every day for 5 days solid. It delayed our closing by a whole week. Our title loan officer said it was the most incompetent bungling she'd seen in her 3 decades on the job.
Got into the new house, tore out carpet immediately in the master bedroom and walk in closet and put in hardwoods myself. (Saved me $2,000 after my own expenses vs the builder.) Wired a bunch of new lights, installed 6 ceiling fans, reupholstered chairs, etc. Moved crap into house. Turn around, go back to old house, tear out front wall of theater room, paint the bed rooms, redo trim, etc. Two weeks of 7am to 1am. I'm so happy to back to work today. LOL.
I literally dropped everything I was doing on Saturday the 7th, and went to see Blade Runner 2049 with my brother and his wife at Barrywoods 24. Something was seriously wrong with the HDR encoding on the previews. The "yes the projector is still on" looked awful.
Thankfully the movie itself looked fine. No, it looked amazing. One of the most visually stunning movies I've ever seen. I don't know how other people reacted to the pacing of the movie, I've heard some say it dragged too much for them, but it was one of the best times I'd ever had at the movies. There were a few times where everything just "clicked" and I felt a tinge of awe. A movie hadn't done that to me since the 90's. I'm truly bummed it bombed.
