    Screen Name: Garax

    Real First Name: Not Given

    Location: Kansas City, Ks.

    Occupation: Photographer/ whatever pays the best at the time.

    Favorite Star Wars Character: Vader, hands down (I have had this opinion since the original trilogy)

    Favorite Star Wars Movie: Debatable. Either all of episode 5, or the last 30 minutes of episode 6.

    Favorite Author: Carl Hiassen

    Moment I Became a Fan: "No, there is another."

    Favorite Snack Food: I would say Lay's KC Masterpiece Chips, but I have to say that i have an extreme weakness for cream cheese danishes.

    Favorite Non-Star Wars Movie: I'll get alot of crap for this, but... Star Trek 6. It had a decent script the entire way through, and the heroes that we had followed for so many years rode off into the sunset at the end.

    Other Fan Groups I Belong to: Technically, none. Although I have managed a game store, played mmos with friends in real life, and have run a local collectible card circuit, so i guess ive been apart of those groups, and continue to be.

    Family: Not Given.

    Favorite Place to Visit: I apologize, but this one will be long. I think that you are asking for my favorite vacation, and I have to say that it was when I camped out for Episode 1 for 5 days. The best part of the whole experience actually wasnt the movie itself, or the moments of anticipation just before the event. It was the fact that I had a 5 day vacation where the entire length of my to-do list was "see movie in 5 days". It was perfect.

    Favorite Music: Juno Reactor, ever since high-school.
