I suspect that those of you who are not getting an LT150, like me, are somewhat dismayed at the overwhelming LT150-ness this forum has lately acquied.


I have a solution. I propose we work out our hostilities through natures mental safety valve: the Haiku.


my suggestion is that we use a more restrictive version of the ancient Japanese poetry form in which the first line of each poem must be the 5 syllable projector name " L T One Fifty"


I will start us off:


L T One Fifty

You have not shipped to me yet

All is nothingness



L T One Fifty

you are such a harsh mistress

I long for your light


L T One Fifty

Like a virus you have spread

over our forum


L T One Fifty

what if your price quote was wrong

how will I go on


L T One Fifty

So small yet so large to us

Looming over all


L T One Fifty

promised me a life of joy,

but will I see rainbows?



LT One Fifty

where is your tracking number?

The night is so long


L T One Fifty

I see you on E-bay now

Is this like scalping?


L T One Fifty

so near and so far from me

Do I hear a truck?


L T One Fifty

you have eluded my grasp

damn you to hell Dell

Jim, I can't top those! Here are some lame ones:


L T One Fifty

You are no D I L A

Just a pretender


L T One Fifty

Just a cheapo projector

So very so-so


L T One Fifty

I just turned mine on today

I'm disappointed


Ok, back to my day job. Those were horrible.

Anson, your Haiku have moved me!


here are a few more:


L T One-Fifty

Did your light guide the wisemen,

to baby Jesus?


L T One-Fifty

Is it true what they all say,

Do you heal the sick?


L T One-Fifty

I can speak of nothing else,

but your holy light.


L T One-Fifty

a global panacea

You solve all problems.


P.S. Andy, I bow to your succinct genius :)

Jim, I don't think you should be allowed to post anymore. I have tears coming out of my eyes and my coworkers are frowning at me.



You get bonus points for having a theme running through your Haiku.

very nice - this has the delicacy of moon beams shimmering off the rocks in a serene Zen garden.


and I'm afraid I can't stop yet, the muse is still with me:


L T One-Fifty

Would Adam Smith approve of

your e-bay debut?


L T One-Fifty

your profit margins are high

quitting my day job


L T One-Fifty

am I now a business man

or just a scalper?


L T One-Fifty

is there a rainbow at the

end of my rainbow?


L T One-Fifty

Usurper of our forum

When will we be free?

LT One-Fifty

deal of the century,

the millenium?


LT One-Fifty

You have introduced Chaos

now find a calm place.


LT One-Fifty

slumber becomes turmoil

you invade my dreams.


LT One-Fifty

I need a projector soon

shall I purchase you?

Not a Haiku but similarly befitting. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif


L T One-fifty


Sized less than the mighty

With picture so pretty

Yet priced for the thriftly


Those that went through hell

Ordering through Dell

Now have something to tell

Less rainbows than bells.

L T One Fif-ty

Heard of the deal

A little too late


LT One Fif-ty

with plenty of Light

A Screen Size just right


LT One Fif-ty

what should I do?

break down and just get you?


LT One Fif-ty

now at a price more than Dell

oh just why didn' everyone tell


LT One Fif-ty

but then do you know

If I'd see a rainbow


LT One Fif-ty

Or the blacks aren't black

would I have to send it back?


LT One Fif-ty

and what about the noise?

that will certainly kill all joys


LT One Fif-ty

I guess i'll just have to be

happy with my CRT http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
