    Hello all. Long time watcher, first time poster. Actually, I have been a member of TFN for a couple of years, but I have changed screen names, and I spend my time in the EP III boards...well, I am excited to talk to locals.
    Yup, I live in Provo, near campus, not a BYU student though. My 4 year old son thinks he is Anakin.

    Welcome to the fold.

    We will, of course, have to "initiate" you before you can be a full Provo Board Member.

    I remember my initiation like it was yesterday. They put me in a Stormtrooper costume and pelted me with paint balls from all directions. Luke wasn't kidding when he said "I can't see a thing in this helmit."
    After that I was beaten with plastic lightsabers and left in the South Utah Desert to die of sunstroke. I guess that was my "Tatooine" part of the initiation. After I cralled back on my belly all the way back to Spanish Fork, I was picked up by the local Fan Force and forced into a long "discussion" (and by discussion, I mean interrogation) of Star Wars terms and EU information. Either they decided I wasn't a threat or that I knew too much, but either way, I became a full fledged member.

    BTW, if you couldn't tell I was kidding by now... ;)

    If any of you want to see what Jayce is talking about, you can check it out [link=http://www.tombofthejedi.com/fxtests/disco_troopers_1.mov]HERE[/link]. (Quicktime required)

    Jayce is the one on the right. Oh, in reality it was dirtclods that we were throwing, not paintballs. ;)

    It was a BLAST! :D
