Then I caught "FlyBoys" a movie about the Lafayette Esqaudrille. Good flick, with nice dogfight sequences.

The new sub really brings the bomb blasts to life...............

I finally set up the TV in the bedroom with HT sound system last year. I found a Marantz SR780 5.1 receiver and hooked up four of those original Smaller Advents that I refoamed. The bass is phenomenal from those old school sealed reflex speaks. I'll have to try a sub on it one of these days.

Here's a couple pics of the sub. The only thing "Velodyne" left of it is the box....Which I noticed had a stamp inside stating it was made by some furniture company in California. Very nice, heavy duty box, though.

I have been watching Japanese female Samurai flicks lately


they star Junko Miyazano and are really good....

If you guys like Tarantino this where he gets his stuff
If you like sword welding Japanese chicks in kimonos (and who does not? ) you need to get these and others....

Have you seen any of the much later Takashi Miike movies John, such as Ichi The Killer?
Some of his movies are very good..

I finally got around to seeing Marley, last year's biopic about Bob Marley. Very well done.
