Nothing of interest

Movies Because I've got the 65" screen for another week, lots of movie watching is high among my priorities. This week it'll be Lost Boys, Blade Runner, Rob Roy, Underworld, Brazil, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, and, of course, Buckaroo Banzai. These are chosen because they are either favorites, will look good on a big screen, or both. I am now into heavy duty research mode for a projection TV. It will be impossible for me to afford an LCD or Plasma screen anywhere near the 65" size I am now looking at and it is evident to me that that is none too large. I will doubtless wind up making payments, but I won't mind that if it allows me to watch television a couple of years longer.
Research It appears to me that INFOCUS is the product to buy. I may go with the X2 projector. The X3 sounds better, but it is new and about $400 more expensive for minimal improvement. In addition to the projector, I'll need some sort of tuner or converter, I suspect as an interface between my cable box and the projector. I'll have to get some extra bulbs also, and at three to four hundred a pop I don't know if I'll ever be able to keep more than one spare on hand. That's the problem with projection TV... I suspect that the expense is not so much a matter of the initial cost as it will be one of upkeep. If anyone out there has some experience I'd appreciate your input.
