    I can't remember if I've posted my answers in this thread before; if I have, I appologize for doing it again; if I haven't, here they are.

    Real name - Keith

    Age - nearly 25

    When you first found the JC - Just a bit before AotC came out in theaters; changed my screenname here several months ago.

    When you first got into Star Wars - First got *really* into it upon seeing TPM in the theater on openning day, but I've watched the OT plenty of times throughout pretty nearly most of my life.

    Fave drinks (non-alcoholic) - water

    Fave food - pizza

    Fave book - The Tao Of Pooh and The Te Of Piglet by Benjamin Hoff

    Fave moves (non-SW) - LOTR, X-Men and X2, Finding Nemo, Bring It On, Donnie Darko, Run Lola Run, Clue, Star Trek VI The Undiscovered Country, Mulan (there's probably some I'm forgetting at the moment)

  24. darthcleo

    darthcleo Administrator Emeritus star 4 VIP - Former Mod/RSA

    Feb 8, 2000
    Real name - Nic

    Age - almost 40

    When you first found the JC - First found the JC when I was put in charge of it, as a TFN staffer, back in early 2000. I turned everything upside down by moving from UBB to snowboards, which allowed the JC to snowball to its current size.

    When you first got into Star Wars - In 1977, when I read the book. My parents wouldn't take me to the movies so I had to wait for Empire Strikes back to see my first SW movie.

    Fave drinks (non-alcoholic) - water

    Fave food - homemade cookies

    Fave book - Wheelock's Latin

    Fave movies (non-SW) - Hmm. I don't watch many movies, to be honest.

    Fave sports - to watch or to be active in? I used to love martial arts, but I'm too old now, and my joints are killing me.

    Fave bands/solo artists - Peter Gabriel

    I ran TFN from early 2000 to mid 2001. Had to quit due to family obligations. I also created the Darth Maul Estrogen Brigade in 1999, gave it up in 2001 too, for the same reasons. AOTC was totally ruined for me based on all the inside info we had gathered (which was WAY more than what was posted on the net). Since it's the last SW movie coming up, I am trying to go in as pristine as I can. 2000-2001 were heavy SW years for me.
    In 2001 I joined the 501st as a biker scout. I attended Celebration II as such. Now the biker scout costume is sold too, and I'm a "regular" fan now.

    I feel like an egomanic writing all of this, since most of you probably don't care, but here goes...

    Real name: Andrew

    Age: 24

    When you first found the JC:
    Does this sound like a religious question to anyone else? Sometime around June 2001, I suppose.

    When you first got into Star Wars:
    I was a late bloomer, comparatively speaking. I bought the OT about a year before TPM came, to see whether the prequels would be worth my time. They were.

    This should be clear from my nickname. But to spell it out...

    Wine - Pinot Noir, a nice Burgundy, a nice Bordeaux, Shiraz (easy on the oak), Zinfandel (red, for the record), Pinot Grigio; but all I ever have the money for is cheap French table wine in the $3 to $4 range

    Beer - Most of the Trappist ales (Rochefort, Chimay, Orval, etc.), Duvel, Delirium Tremens, Fuller's ESB (no, not Empire Strikes Back...Extra Special Bitter! ;) ), Two Brothers Heavy-Handed, Sam Adams Cream Stout, Goose Island IPA

    Non-alcoholic - Tea, Coffee, and a very good root beer, like Sprechers

    By genre, because I'm neurotic...

    Pop/rock - Randy Newman, Bob Dylan, David Byrne/Talking Heads, The Beatles, Brian Wilson, Elton John, The Clash

    Soul/gospel/blues - Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Van Morrison, Aretha Franklin, Robert Johnson, Michael Jackson (yes, I said it; go listen to Off the Wall and tell me it's not a great album!)
