    Welcome LordFuron! Were you at the meeting last night, by any chance? If not, don't worry. There will be another one in February. The best way to get to know us online is to just jump in on the discussions and make your thoughts known. Always glad to see new members!

    Hey everyone, I'm Tyler, but I do actually go by my username, so feel free to call me that.

    Not new to Calgary Fan Force, but new to the forums, so I figured I would check in.

    Love Star Wars, love Transformers even more, but hey--now they're two-in-one, so I'm sold..

    Looking forward to talking to all of you.

Thanks for inviting me to the meeting even though I'm not technicaly a member*, Its nice to be a part of the community.

    Welcome Carolyn! The easiest way to get to know us (and for us to get to know you) is if you just jump in on the discussions. Post away!

    Hi! My name is Garrett, and as you can probably tell from my alias here, I like blue women. I've loved Star Wars ever since I was a wee tyke and I have carried that love into my ripe old age of 22. I consider myself a collector, I have 5 Force FX lightsabers, Luke's episode VI, Anakin's episode III, Darth Maul's (two, because you can't have a Darth Maul saber without having it in its full duel-bladed glory) and my Yoda episode III was just shipped yesterday, so I'm really excited about that one. I also collect the action figures; I doubt I have nearly as impressive of a collection as a lot of the board members, but it still does me proud.
    Outside of Star Wars my main hobby is comic books. I read approximately 50 regular titles, and numerous mini-series (I tend to remain in the mainstream Marvel and DC, but I do read Fables, Star Wars: Legacy and the new Buffy season 8 title). I also have an incredibly huge collection of DC direct action figures, upwards of 300 and constantly being expanded.
    I am an english major and upon receiving my degree I plan on going to law school. As an english major I have a passion for both writing and reading; Pre-19th century english literature is my specialty and my favorite writers would be Keats, Byron, Eliot, Browning and Yeats (And yes I'm aware both Yeats and Eliot are 20th century writers, they are my only exceptions)
    My favorite shows are Boston Legal, The Office, Heroes, Family Guy and South Park.
    I'm really excited to be a member of this community; I only found out about it recently but I've been interested in joining a group like this for some time now. I look forward to meeting all of the members, and until then, may the force be with you.

    Hey my name is Tyson, Garret(Aaylaismywife) as you may see up just a little bit, actaully called me and told me about this group shortly after he found out about it. i've been a star wars fan for a far shorter time than garrett, but nonetheless still a huge fan. i do collect the force fx lightsabers as well (being the mace windu, and obi wan from episode 3), as well as some toys as well. i look forward to meeting all of you in the near future!

    May the Force be with you,
    Tyson

    Wow! Welcome to all the new members!

    Because of where I live, it may be quite some time before I actually get to meet any of you in person.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy yourselves!

    Hello!!

    Met a few folks tonight at the Chinook meet, thought I'd come to the board and introduce myself. My name is Jon, and I've pretty much been a huge Star Wars fan for years...and really I don't know why it took the recent ffwd article to comprehend that there would be a group of Star Wars fans here in Calgary...but none the less, I know now!!

    I'm a writer/aspiring filmmaker, and I'm in the middle of writing a sci fi project, that I hope to one day film (so I'm always on the lookout for creative folks to get on board the project at some point) and to practice my editing skills I created a Machinima film, set in the star wars universe called Final Redemption. (for those not familiar with machinima, it is movies filmed in the environment of a game...in the case of mine, it is filmed in Star Wars Galaxies)

    Well I suppose I'll just leave it at that for now, but not without (for better or worse) sharing some links to things I have done.

    Final Redemption Series The final redemption series is 3 stories, one outline of Roleplay events and 1 movie. If you like to read fan fiction then you can click here and it'll take you to a page to read the stories before my film, if not just click here and watch the prologue to get somewhat caught up

    (I urge people to watch episode 6 or 7 first to see if it catches your interest...then if it does go back to the begining and watch all the way through....total running time is 2 hours and 15 mins...and the reason I say 6 or 7 is because it is the build up to the climax, but doesn't give the climax away...and the first couple episodes are a bit slower moving...but that's ok!! A New Hope was slow moving at the start too!!)

    My bonus stuff for Final Redemption (including a couple interviews with me so if you want to put a face to the forum guy...here ya go)

    My first ever 3D animation - Bweep VS AT-AT

    Animated storyboard short on the sci'fi/fantasy concept I am working on (though these are animations I am actually hoping to film this live action someday) with a bit of a intro from me...

    and my Battlestar Galactica, season 3 alternate ending parody (possible spoilers if you havn't watched the whole season 3)

    and...I write songs now and again, so here's a silly video I made for one of them (if you ask nicely I'll share my song "the jedi drinking song")

    and.....well that's about it. Looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know you all better!! Feel free to add me to MSN if you use it. I'm at tadosmail@gmail.com

    (at tonights meet there was talk of working on a fan film....just as a FYI, I am all over that if there is interest)

    Cheers

    Jon

    Greetings Nythaka ,Thoneon & Griffin Firetail. Glad to see you guys made it over here to the boards. As you can see this is where the fun begins. Most of what happens with the Fan Force goes down here. Glad to hear you guys could make it out to the meeting on Tuesday. I wish I could have but I had 10 yards of top soil to wheel barrel into my yard tonight. I think I got it down to about 2 more to move.
