Hi, Mallory! Glad you found us!
Count me in the band geek category... (flute also and french horn for some performances). You'll fit right in. Most of us like Harry Potter, LoTR, pretty much all fantasy and sci-fi. And I see that you like 30 Seconds to Mars...remind me later to tell you my Jared Leto story. I'm very proud of myself. LOL
BAND GEEKS NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Sorry, high school memories flowing back.
Welcome to the Fan Force Mallory!
Hi, I'm Jamie. The Public Relations Officer for the Kansas City Fanforce. While I don't live in St. Louis, I do travel through every now and then. I would also love to, if anyone is open to it, have some joint gatherings with all of MO's fanforces. Nothing really planned, just a thought. Once again, I just wanted to say hello.
Hi Jamie. Nice to have you stop by. Let us know what you have in mind...
Oh, I will. As soon as I can ever think of anything =o)
LOL! I understand. Also we might want to include the Carbondale, Ill chapter as well. They would love to come and they are somewhat close to us.
I'm new to the boards.
Names John. I am 18 and live in Ferguson in St. Louis.
I am an amateur filmmaker and the primary reason I signed up was to gather local interested and hopefully get some people to add to my cast for an upcoming fan film!
Nice to meet you all!
Hi John, welcome to the group. We are practically neighbors since I live in Jennings.
Welcome John. The fanfilm sounds interesting...
Welcome, John! Sorry, I'm a little slow on occasion.
AGE/BIRTHDATE: 12/28/82 - I'm 25 at this posting.
LOCATION(S): St. Charles. I have lived in Des Peres, Kirkwood, Manchester, St. Peters, and Maryland Heights also.
OCCUPATION/DRUDGERY: Life sentence of servitude at Walgreens.
FAMILY/PETS: Two roommates, one of whom is also a huge Star Wars fan, but sadly does not indulge in online fandom. Two cats, who are not named for Star Wars characters, unfortunately.
SW FAN SINCE: Birth? I can't even remember the revelation of Luke's parentage. I finally made my holy Star Wars pilgrimage to Celebration IV last year in Los Angeles.
HOW I INDULGE MY SW OBSESSION: I am a very active member of Wookieepedia, where as Graestan I serve as an administrator, sit on an article review panel, and co-lead a group project promoting articles to be featured on the main page. I read SW novels at a leisurely pace, and purchase the KotOR and Legacy TPBs as they come out. Loved the KotOR games.
OTHER SCI-FI INTERESTS: DUNE, Star Trek, Stargate SG-1, the odd sci-fi anime, and plenty more. Asimov books.
OTHER OTHER INTERESTS: History, literature, cuisine, nature, and so on. If you get to know me, you'll find out plenty more.
MUSICAL TASTES: Very broad; I was raised a classical musician, so I can find something small to like in most music.
Windows Live Messenger: firstname.lastname@example.org
IRC: "Graestan" on irc.freenode.net and irc.holonet.org - commonly found in #eu on holonet
I'm new to the JCF. Nice to find you all on here. I'm going to be rather active on the Lit boards, but am very open to local fan activities as well. - Joe
Hi Joe, I am glad you found us. Feel free to jump in and help stir the place up a bit.
Thanks. And oh, you have no idea... MUAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!

Welcome Chris! I grew up in Collinsville, but now live in St. Louis. Is the little Ice Cream stand still there? The one on the main road when you first go over the tracks? We ate there alot.
I thought I'd post this again since it had been so long...
AGE/BIRTHDATE: I'm 29 forever... (born August 19, 1977)
LOCATION(S): Festus, MO
OCCUPATION/DRUDGERY: Stay-at-home mom, hopefully a grad student somewhere in the near future, sometimes substitute teacher
FAMILY/PETS: Hubbie Patrick (married for 9 years, together for almost 15) Son, Teaguen James who is 6
SW FAN SINCE: Patrick has been OBSESSED since birth. It came with the whole being with him thing. It's part of the package deal! lol!
HOW I INDULGE MY SW OBSESSION: movies, books, artwork, playing with Teags, would like to get into some cosplay soon.
OTHER SCI-FI INTERESTS: Angel/Buffy, The Crow, zombie stuff, Bill and Ted, the list could go on and on ...I was raised by a Trekkie, so I have some of that in me too, but don't tell anyone...
OTHER OTHER INTERESTS: Vampires, brat pack/80's movies, cute Japanese things, fairies, cartoons, cooking, baking, gardening, crafty things, cross stitch, reading, playing video games... again, this could be a long list...
MUSICAL TASTES: Again, another possible long list... But off the top of my head, steampunk bands like Abney Park, screamo, emo, 90's alternative, dance, trance, electronica, hair metal, 80's new wave... and on and on and on...
CHAT ID'S: navywifedanielle on yahoo. I'm on a lot, but I'm usually invisible, so it's always a good idea to buzz if you want a chat. I just may be there!
AGE/BIRTHDATE: 32(or 8 if you only count Leap Years)/February 29, 1976
LOCATION(S): Festus, MO
OCCUPATION/DRUDGERY: Tier II IT Support, Enterprise Rent-a-Car
FAMILY/PETS: Wife - Danielle (married for 9 years, together for almost 15 - See above posting!) Son - Teaguen (6 years old, much like me he can't remember a time without Star Wars)
SW FAN SINCE: Um, I can honestly not remember a time in my life when I wasn't obsessed....
HOW I INDULGE MY SW OBSESSION: Movies, books, CCG, Role-playing on and off, toys constantly
OTHER SCI-FI INTERESTS: Resident Evil (and pretty much any other zombie related thing), Aliens/Predator, Halo, The Crow, Angel/Buffy, Transformers
OTHER OTHER INTERESTS: Hockey, video games, sleeping, keeping my son alive (it's not as easy as you'd think!)
MUSICAL TASTES: If it came out in the 80's or 90's, chances are I liked it (Country not so much). A lot of newer stuff that I like would be classified as emo, I guess. If it's loud, fast, or heavy, it's a sure bet I'll like it.
CHAT ID'S: I don't really have a chat ID. I spend all day at work in front of a computer, I usually give my brain and fingers a break at night.
