We spent the weekend doing variations on curtain hanging. We are now very happy with the bar but have yet to find suitable “blackout curtains”. We bought some called “Eclipse” from Bed, Bath, & Beyond that are touted to be “blackout” and block “99.8%” of light – don’t believe it!! They are garbage. They don’t block anywhere near all the light that comes through. Another “normal” pair of curtains we had bought did a better job. We’re still looking. Needless to say the “Eclipse” curtains are going back.
I went (without the lovely missus) to see Grindhouse. It was absolutely everything I hoped it would be. If you see the trailers and it looks like your “cup of tea” and you like Tarantino and Rodriguez movies, go see it. If you think you won’t like it… you probably won’t 🙂 Anyway, I had a great time. It is long at 3h 15m, but it is two whole movies (plus some great fake movie previews).
