There you have it displayed before you ladies and gentlemen, how the world was brought down by the greed of humankind.

Not sure how the spending of one's wealth for personal pleasure would be considered greed. I spend my hard-earned money on things I enjoy, he just has more $'s than I do..

What he could do is bring a homeless dude in there to play some PS3 once in a while to make up for it.

After putting some plastic down on the couch.

If he did that, i'd want to be homeless =D

Looks like it would be a lot better then a normal cinema. Just look at that setup, you're literally surrounded by speakers. Not to mention the screen would be much sharper than the average cinema.

That is a super HD so to speak. Not to mention the pure butt shaking power. Nothing like a good action film where you are actually blown off of the couch during an on screen explosion....Just like being there.

Notice how the "couch" is designed for one person to sit in the middle, with armrests and snack emplacement conveniently on both sides. Greed, pure and simple. Guilty, take him down bailiff. Then send ME the keys!

It's a major drawback for any surround sound, you have to be right in the sweet spot of the sound field. Only room for 1 or 2 people there.

Yea, it needs some Star Trek. I actually liked the USS Enterprise-D home theatre more than this one.

LOL. Most things in life I don't mind sharing with others, but there is the fact that my race car only has one seat for a reason..

Have you ever watched the 3 LotR movies back-to-back?

Never do it.

Ever.

Is it home cinema or is it a sales tool? However, I'm lead to understand that the 4K projector they're using isn't quite up to the 4K of something like the Red One.

When I see this stuff (Things that are but I will most likely never encounter) I'm always interested and sometimes excited by what they (people who don't live in but control my world) are able to do. That's the can part.

Then the should part sets in... it just seems to me, that in a world full of starving people, this really is a disgrace...

Sade - Pearls

Words: sade adu
Music: sade adu and andrew hale


There is a woman in somalia
Scraping for pearls on the roadside
There's a force stronger than nature
Keeps her will alive
This is how she's dying
She's dying to survive
Don't know what she's made of
I would like to be that brave

She cries to the heaven above
There is a stone in my heart
She lives a life she didn't choose
And it hurts like brand-new shoes

Hurts like brand-new shoes

There is a woman in somalia
The sun gives her no mercy
The same sky we lay under
Burns her to the bone
Long as afternoon shadows
It's gonna take her to get home
Each grain carefully wrapped up
Pearls for her little girl

Hallelujah
Hallelujah

She cries to the heaven above
There is a stone in my heart
She lives in a world she didn't choose
And it hurts like brand-new shoes
Hurts like brand-new shoes
