|I'm thinking obsessive

The Boy cracks me up. He is still churning out books by the dozens, but the trip to Moody Gardens earlier this week gave him the idea that we should have our own personal IMAX theater. He spent hours last night explaining to me exactly how we would accomplish this. Me telling him that we could not nail a sheet to the wall to make a screen was only a minor setback.
He planned four movies - something about an underground adventure, one about sharks, one I never did quite grasp but had something to do with what looked like a buzzsaw, and "Sponge Bob vs. the Cyclops" - a rollicking tale, I'm sure.
Ever the worrier, he drew up detailed plans for construction, lest we leave anything out. I told him this was a long-term project, but he seemed to think we could throw it together in a couple of hours, even though we don't have a projector or any film.
The drawings were in pencil, so they didn't scan very well, but I just had to share. I've labeled everything since you don't have the advantage of listening to him explain exactly what everything is, how it works, why we need it, and how we will make it.
First, all the components:
Next, how they will all fit together:
So, what do you think? Movies at my place?
