Yes Tim, Post it so I can read it too!
I'll see if I can find it and post it tonight.
-the other Tim
after a careful, arduos and oh so long search (ok so I only ran the 'find files or folders' window thingy but still) I regret to say I can't find it. I must have erased it or something.
I printed some out though so I may find it, but the gist of it was talking about how Han Solo was selfish and had an ungiving spirit at first which led him into trouble but eventually he turned around and started thinking of others and then he got out of trouble and I compared that to how God expects us to tithe and give to his kingdom. The moral, unless you want to end up frozen in carbonite sitting in Jabba's palace you better pay your tithes.
That's cool, as a matter of fact we have a member frozen in carbonite right now in our office because they refuse to tithe!!!
Lol, different church same problems. Hey Chad if you don't mind me asking, what denomination are you? Just curious, I'm Assembly of God.
I am christian church/church of christ. We are like East Win Christian Church.
Ahh, I know some Church of Christ people around here. That's cool.
My mom's baptist, my dad's mormon, I had a jewish step-mother, and I went to a catholic school.
When people ask me what I am I usually just say 'confused!'
We were "Schmirnoffs" when we were kids.
I know, because dad did a ritual with it at sunrise and at sunset.
I'll drink to that- no, wait- I don't drink...
I know- I'll EAT to that!
Ok, I'm one of the new guys so here goes.
I've only been a SW fan about 14 years. I didn't get into it untill I found the SWRPG from West End Games.
I got to see A New Hope when it premered. I was about 5 and only bearly rember going . As for where, do you guys know where the Book Star is on poplar? It used to be a theater, that is where I saw it .
My favorite SW movie is ESB.
As for my favorite cha.? Thats a toss up between Chewbacca and Darth Vader. Go figure.
Other SW interest of my are first and formost the RPG., and I have read many of the books.
I'm married 11 years now. Have a son he's almost 10. I was in the Army about 6 years. I collect comis (I've got about 4k), RPGs, retro toys (trans formers mostly). I mostly just like to read, roleplay, and play computer games. (I'm such a looser )
My favorite TV shows include Smallvile, Buffy, Angle, Gillmore Girls...Prety much if its on the WB or UPN I'll watch it.
SW all (of course), Spiderman, Excaliber, highlander only the first one, Indyanna Jones all three, and a slew of others I wont put here.
My favorite writers are peter david and jk wroling. Favorite books are all the Harry Poter books and any thing that peter david writes.
Hmm..Favorite song or artist...Well What I Am by Edie Brickell is my theme song.
Well can't think of a favorite quote.
My favorite time of the year is fall OCT NOV.
First name Lancil
I live in Raleigh.
Glad to have you with us!
Question: Do you go by Lancil or by Lance?
(And holler if you don't like being addressed by your real name on our boards. I prefer doing this because it's much more personal, especially since most of us have met in person.)
My wife and mother call me Lancil. My friends tend to call me Lance. Im not picky .
And no I dont care if you all call me Lance on the boards.
Welcome Lance! I lived in Raleigh for a few years after I graduated from college and we're not too far from you now in Millington. Looking forward to meeting you.
From a fellow noobie in the SMT.
I'm not too far from you either. Frayser in da hizouse.
Ah, Lance- we'll get along just fine...
I, too am a comic collector (lost count MANY years ago), big fan of Buffy and the first Highlander (there can be only ONE!), and Smallville. I'm also a big Batman fan (although I could've done without the last couple bat-flicks!), and I dig 'Stargate', 'Enterprise', and any of those home improvement shows- even though you couldn't tell it by the look of my house!
Hope to see you at our upcoming get-togethers!
Oh- I live not too far from the Bookstar on Poplar, and actually got to do a booksigning there last year for 'Ramblings With Redde: Why My Life Is Like A Bad 'B' Flick'- I did the illustrations. I saw ANH at the Whitehaven Cinema when I was about 10-11, ESB at the Park theater down the street from the Polar one, and ROTJ at the Mall Of Memphis.
Yes, Lin I think we will get along fine
I fell in love with the batman mithos when the first movie came out. I've been collecting all his titles ever sence.
Thanks for all the wellcomes, and I look foward to meating you all.
I'm a spider-man fan myself. Have something like 300-400 spiderman comics alone. Green Lantern has always been my fave DC because GReen is my fave color and he just looks so cool.
I was a big Spidey and Batman fan as a kid- the Adam West show and animated Spiderman cartoons were on WAY back then. I've still got the Adam West looking figure from my 3rd birthday cake- along with a few rooms full of other guanno. If I ever figure out how to post some pick with a post I'll show you some of it. Lots, of Spidey, X-Men, and Hulk stuff, too. Most of that and the majority of my Star Wars stuff is packed away. Now Sal- he's got a Star Wars stash!
I dig GL, but red more of the Flash and Batman as a kid. I got to meet Joe Staton at the last fantasy con and got him to sign some Huntress and GL books for me- great guy.

"If Clark wanted to, he could use his superspeed and squish me into the cement. But I know how he thinks. Even more than the kryptonite, he's got one big weakness. Deep down, Clark's essentially a good person ... and deep down, I'm not."
? Batman, BATMAN #612
Eh, Christmas and Holloween I guess. They'll be fun again when I have kids.

Do you live in Memphis or one of the suburbs?
Shelby County, near Germantown
Profession or college major?
Youth Minister, Writer (Working on it), about to be an Urban Ministry Major when I go back to school.
Um...not sure what else people would want to know about me. I'm pretty open so feel free to ask or talk to me on one of the three IM things I'm on (AIM, Yahoo, and MSN). i guess from looking at the previous posts I could talk a bit about my church background for those interested. I started out Assemblies of God then I went to a Church of God University, but I don't really like denominations so I don't consider myself a part of either or (even though I may be a Youth Pastor for an AG church soon hopefully). When people ask me I just tell them I'm not denominational. Then I have to explain how being not denominational is different than being non-denom simply because, dispite the name, non-denom is actually considered a denomination. Ironic isn't it?
Well I've been around for awhile but I never saw this so here's my contribution:
General Star Wars stuff:
How long have you been a SW fan? Since May 15th, 1977 when I first seen ANH.

Randy,- hope you can make it out to MSC or one of our SMT events.
As far as denominatons go, my mom is Baptist, my Dad is Mormon, I had a Jewish step-mother, and I went to a catholic school. So when folks ask me what I am I usually just say, "Confused!"
Computer Aided/assisted Drafting, right? Or does it mean you're a 'cad'?!
