Lucky for me I vacillated on what to buy for long enough that the AE4000 came out.


\:\) Your experience with it could influence whether or not I get one. Thankfully, I have my computer to build first, but after that, everything's fair game again.

Love Bioshock. Be a nice person.


Oh, and warn your SO what you're playing... some of the sound effects are rather disturbing.

I’ve resisted playing “Bioshock” this long so I could play on the projector and screen w/full blackout. Just a couple more weeks (curtains will be the hold up)

No SO, I’m free but should I warn the neighbors not to call the cops if they hear something? Not being in an apartment anymore I tend to play movies and games a bit louder. ;\)

Spent about 14 hours yesterday painting the walls burgundy. Still have to paint the trim and do some touching up. BTW painting sucks…next time I’m inviting some friends from across the border over to do the painting. ;\)

The primer I used was a sort of blue-grey which actually looked pretty good with the black ceiling so a shout out to BigHonu for the suggestion of battleship grey. However, I like the burgundy better as it doesn’t remind me of being cooped up in an LST.

Got the tracking info and the projector won’t get here until Monday which is actually good news since I should have the painting finished and the screen hung by then.

Sean loves painting and whatever else needs to be done. I'm volunteering his help.

The sounds and dialog the little sisters have can be disturbing, and if someone thought it was real, it would undoubtedly result in a phone call to the cops.

Man, I thought painting was pretty fun... The mudding and sanding was brutal though.

Back for another reality check.

I’m having second thoughts about painting the trim tan but now because of how dark and rich the burgundy looks I’m thinking that gold trim would look a lot nicer. This trim won’t just be around the baseboards and door frames but also inlaid on the doors.

I probably would have disliked that more, however thankfully I’m not having to modify the room itself beyond painting. The areas that don’t have walls will have curtain walls to simulate the effect of the room being rectangular. I already determined that not having a full front wall has no noticeable effect on the front soundstage as long as the one speaker with a wall behind it is at least 3 1/2 to 4 feet out.
