Morel SoundWall LCR4 SW In-Wall Modular Soundbar System Review
Mon, 12 Sep 2016 23:19:34 +0000
$3,497 as reviewed
AT A GLANCE
Requires no modifications to internal wall structure
Needs a subwoofer
If you like simplicity and hate seeing speakers, but demand high performance for music and movies, these SoundWalls may
be what you’ve been waiting for.
I could start this review by making a comparison between Morel, the loudspeaker company, and morel, the type of mushroom. But someone would no doubt castigate me (or worse) for not referring to morchella, the more technically correct name for morel mushrooms—and therefore, that same someone would deem my comparison to be a mighty poor excuse for an introduction to a Test Report. So, I’ll simply say that Morel is an unusual speaker company, in many ways.

Every Star Trek Movie Ranked
Fri, 09 Sep 2016 19:59:08 +0000
This week marked the 50th anniversary of the premiere of Star Trek
on TV. While logically this should have resulted in a â€śbest episodes!â€ť type postâ€¦ I havenâ€™t seen every episode of the original series. Iâ€™m of the Next Generation
generation. And since that anniversary isnâ€™t for another 2 weeks (29 years!), I figured we could talk about the movies.
Because I love the movies. Well most of them. OK some of them. Hereâ€™s my favorites from beloved to almost-despised. Feel free to list yours in the comments.

Truly, right from the opening credits, Deadpool lets the audience know that it is like no other comic book movie that has come before it. First-time director Tim Miller’s visual style is undeniably bold, while the humor tackles head-on virtually every cliché of the genre… then sets it on fire and pees it out. After the title character’s big-screen debut in the misfire X-Men Origins: Wolverine seven years ago, a complete overhaul was in order. The cinematic Deadpool is now a vastly more accurate embodiment of his persona from the page: irreverent, ruthless, yet possessing at least a little gold in that self-repairing heart.
