About this time last week, I went to Best Buy after work to pick up a Bose CineMate Series II Digital Home Theater System since I was tired of watching action movies and hearing only a staticky click whenever a gun or explosion went off. Immediately after Tessa set it up (did you seriously think I would be able to install it?!) I tested it out with a few crucial films starting with the original 1978 Superman film starring Christopher Reeve primarily because of the swooshing opening credits combined with John Williams' unforgettable theme music. Continuing in the vein of John Williams' epic themes, I naturally went with a Star Wars film choosing Episode III: Revenge of the Sith because of the fantastic opening battle sequence over Coruscant. Then I followed it up with a little Twister action! I was loving it....too bad I can't say the same about Tessa or the dogs!
Tessa had to work over the weekend so that gave me ample time to enjoy the new home theater sound system without bothering her. And what did I watch? A bunch of crappy old horror flicks on Netflix like Mad Ron's Prevues From Hell and Zombiethon! Both were chock full of clips and trailers from really bad 60s, 70s and 80s horror films - AND naked ladies from back in the day! Speaking of which, porn sounds pretty damn good on my TV now!
Fast forward to today when I got to work, I was told by Roy at the front desk that I had a package. It was an odd looking box riddled with eerily written things all over it. When I opened it, I found THIS:
Apparently, it's a part of the promotions for the new Fox series The Following starring Kevin Bacon so I took a pic of it to post on Facebook then added it to my arsenal of unusual items in my office by placing it on the cabinet behind my desk next to my Jesse James Dupree autographed chainsaw and placed my hard hat on it! It's days like these that reassure me that I went into the right profession!
