I do need to post a newer photo of the beard, but the right moment hasn't struck yet. I'm not that photogenic.

You have a fine beard, Sam.  Quite full.  I have a kind of wirey-Santa-hobo beard.

It's all angry customers, projector issues, unreasonable demands from the film distributors, etc. That being said, I feel like I'm actually really close to having my own theater. It likely won't be in a super awesome area or a new theater or anything, no recliner seats, but I will run it.

Are all the hobbies recent additions? I cannot imagine watching and rewatching so many movies (back in your more prolific days) and still finding the time to do so much.

Are all the hobbies recent additions? I cannot imagine watching and rewatching so many movies (back in your more prolific days) and still finding the time to do so much.

Cooking came along in the past few years. Otherwise, no. Before I got into movies, music was my main obsession. Recently I'm getting back into music in a big way. Lately I'm on a big dub binge. I went through big videogaming and reading phases in my younger days, now I don't make much time for either though I still enjoy both. These days most of my leisure time (what little there is of it) is spent on TV.

You were the one I was hoping would respond to this. Although I wish you didn't have so many joke answers, it's nice to know a little bit more about DH, the human being. Pink Floyd was my first obsession. I even saw them twice (sadly, post-Waters).

I think calling me a human being is rather cruel for human beings. And if there weren't joke answers I think people would get worried.
