Hey kiddies, through the efforts of Paul Perez (immortalized as Paul Bearer in the Talboto comics way back in 1993) I now have a graphic equalizer to try to clean up the soundtracks to some of my 1970's films. Unfortunately, its arrival here collided with my holiday projects so it will be a while before I can test it out and continue making film to video transfers. Just thought you'd like to see what the device looks like (for you younger nippers) and to remind the more mature ones of all the hardware we invested in for our music collections.
Since Paul is a big STAR WARS fan and collector, I asked what his plans were for the premiere of the new film in the series. Surprisingly, he said that he's going to wait a week or two before checking it out. As he's gotten older, the crowds at these kinds of shows annoy him and he's rather wait for them to thin out a bit. Except for many of the kid-oriented animated films (and that's about 99% of them now) I usually go to the earliest matinee shows. Most of the time, movie-jerks don't like to wake up early enough to spoil these shows although I'm seen a few exceptions.
Paul sporting the Indiana Jones look. Thanks for the equalizer, Indy!
