I am REALLY glad you noticed.
It was a little scary showing my home to the world but I wanted to make the point about walking the walk and talking the talk.
I took $13,000 in commissions from 1/2 a sale at Cello Los Angeles - back when I worked for Mark Levinson - and parlayed that into what we have today. No VC. No IPO. Just hard work and a LOT of reinvestment. By that I mean working with reviewers, helping them with their systems and getting a lot of help from MANY companies over the years to stay cutting edge.
That's why when people challenge our cred - ask Lenoard Maltin what he thinks of Bill Warren our Home Video editor. Ask him why he is a contributing editor to his guide? Do other publications have that and FOR FREE!!!!! ????
I am not complaining. I am just thankful that people notice because before I bust out $10,000 for HD disc players, installs etc... I could just take the money home but I didn't and I don't. Hell, I spent $3,000 on a PS3 last year and you will note we have a home theater oriented 5200 word FULL FEATURE posted in 36 hours!!!!! Can a print mag do that? That is a solid NO.
