It’s been a long time since my previous update so to keep up with the tradition of monthly updates, this time I’ll be putting up an in-depth and totally unnecessary review of my home theatre/entertainment set up.

I’ve not decided yet on how many parts this will be but I’m aiming for three, a trilogy if you may. Who knows, it might even be a triview of epic proportions. Or if there is more to add, it might even be a “trilogy in more than 3 parts”. First and foremost, a picture of the whole shebang.

Since most of my readers (all 3 of them) might not give a damn about the technical stuff in this review, I’ll have lots of pictures and explain it in layman’s terms or street talk or whatever they call it these days to show what’s so cool about spending a small fortune. First up is the centre of attention, the big ass TV.

The thingie that has moving pictures

"Always walk away from the light at the end of the tunnel"

"Always walk away from the light at the end of the tunnel"

“A TV is like your penis, it’s always never big enough.” Applies to boobs as well I guess. But hey 40″ is big enough for a TV (40″ is a tad too much a measurement for a penis, but boobs maybe, whatever floats your boat). First and foremost, the said TV is a Samsung LCD TV, model LE-40M86BD Euro version. It cost me nearly 1.6 big ones in those fancy European currency. I won’t go into anymore details as I’ll just bore you to death and I’m just that lazy.

Anyway, the picture is sweet, the colours are true to life and porn has never been better watching National Geographic is like being there. But of course, it all boils down to the source material. If you have some bootleg, out-of-focus, recorded-by-a-Parkinson’s-sufferer-in-a-cinema kind of movie material, it’ll never help. But with high definition material like Blu-Ray movies, you can tell if Bond needs to book an appointment with his beautician to remove all those black heads.

There are of course some bad points with this TV. The sound is shitty. It’s sufficient for normal news viewing but for movies, I need to pipe the sound through my surround system (more on that soon hopefully). Besides, there is this annoying thing of having to press numerous times on the remote to change between inputs. Couch time is sacred to a Malaysian you hardworking Koreans!

The Ass Protector

The comfort zone

The comfort zone

Being able to watch movies and game for insanely inhuman long periods of time calls for the highest degree of safety and comfort to one’s posterior. Therefore, a suitable “Posterior Comfort and Protection Unit” is of utmost importance. “This unit fits itself snugly to your behind, producing a natural form that caresses and enhances beauty of your posterior, while providing the best comfort to the user and style to the modern living room”, at least that’s what my neighbour said to me when I got it from him before he decided to throw it away.

The Collection

"Guarantee clear boss, no cinema copy one"

"Guarantee clear boss, no cinema copy one"

With all those hardware, one must have the software to match. Like the saying goes, “a chain is only as strong as its weakest link” or something like that. It’s like having a wife with the body of Angelina Jolie who doesn’t know the difference between a dimple and a nipple, you’ll just get to have very hot sex but fall asleep after that because of boredom. Wait, that didn’t turn out right, but you get the drift.

The Sound of Music

Useless Daily Trivia: Speakers are the opposite of microphones

Useless Daily Trivia: Speakers are the opposite of microphones

Nothing much to talk about this faithful device here. It’s been 2 years since I got it and still works like new. Only managed to get the main part in the picture as it makes little sense to photograph 5 similar speakers, just use your imagination or print the picture out 5 times.

That grey thingamajig with an antenna is a wireless device to connect my Playstation 3 to Internet (more on that in the next review).

That’s all for the first installment of my humble review. Hope it brought you some laughs and envy. Next up, the heart of all this, my Sony Playstation 3 and its bastard son, the Playstation Portable. Before I go, I leave you with a behind the scenes picture of the making of this review.

Will they ever come out with wireless electricity?
