Thursday and Friday were crazy busy for me, so I was unable to get to part four on postmodernism. For a postmodern, it wouldn’t matter much. For all my modernist readers, however, the unexpected change could cause some internal tension.
Part of the delay was in the changes we’ve made in our auditorium this week. We’ve made two MAJOR upgrades. First was a radio frequency assistive listening system for our folks that don’t hear so well. The second was a motorized drop down screen for our projection system. A few months ago we replaced our projector with a super-cool 5000 lumen projector. It only made sense to replace our aging screen with a new one.
No offense meant in any way to my beloved friend Randy, who installed the first screen, but it was sort of an awkward network of ropes and pulleys that raised the screen from the base of the baptistery upwards. The new one is sleek and out of the way. Better yet, we can access the baptistery without having to man the pulleys.
In case any of you are in the market for any audio/visual equipment for auditoriums, I highly recommend my friend Ben Mankin of Mankin Media. We went to middle school together in Abilene. Tell him I sent you.
