    Hey Everyone, I posted over in the Fan Film thread, and have lurked on here and the website for a long, long time. So I figured it was about time I introduce myself!

    General Star Wars stuff:

    How long have you been a SW fan? Since 1995, with the "Last Time Ever" VHS release.

    Describe your first SW movie experience: Which movie? When? Where? I saw the advertisements for the "Last Time Ever" VHS when I was twelve or so and figured as much as I heard about Star Wars, it was about time to watch it. Unfortatnly my local Blockbuster only had Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi and they were in horrible condition. Still I watched Empire and was amazed. The graphics were even good for 1995!

    Which is your favorite SW movie? I have to pick one? Uhh.. Empire, because life is a series of down endings. :)

    Favorite character? R2-D2 is the MAN... well droid.

    Other SW interests? (collecting, gaming, costuming, fan fiction, books/comics/EU, etc.) I just started reading Shadows of the Empire which I love! It's just such a vast universe it's almost intimidating to get more involved with. But I'm working on it.


    About you:

    What other interests/hobbies do you have outside of SW? Well I'm a filmmaker. I work with a local Media Co Op and do some stuff by myself as well. I love to write, both screenplays, rants, and short stories. I love videogames, Kevin Smith films, Comics, 80's Metal, "Six Feet Under", Nascar, Hockey, ahhh I could be here all day.

    Favorite TV show(s)? I rarely ever watch TV, but I do like "Six Feet Under".

    Favorite movie(s)? It's almost impossible to list even my top 100 but some I like are : American Beauty, The Holy Trilogy (Of Course), All Kevin Smith flicks, Garden State, Collateral...

    Favorite book or author? I'm a big Chuck Palahniuk fan! Choke, Fight Club, Invisible Monsters all rule! I also just read A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy which was hilarious.

    Favorite song or artist? I'm a big Poison fan, Bloodhound Gang, Queen, Eminem, Evanescence, Thomas Newman.

    Favorite quote? "I never let my school interfere with my education." Mark Twain

    Favorite holiday?
    Halloween

    Optional:

    First name? Brandon

    Age? 21

    Do you live in Memphis or one of the suburbs? Cordova.

    Profession or college major? I attend school right now still debating between Film, English, History or Funeral Service Technology!

    Misc:
    Hmmm.. I'm out of answers.

    Welcome to the SMT, Brandon!

    And go for the Funeral Services Technology. You've always got folks dying to give you their business. :p

    (Sorry, couldn't help it. It was just too easy of a shot.)

    Hello everyone, I am new to these boards. My name is Bill. I am a friend and co-worker of Salvador. He is the one who introduced me to this site. I have been a SW fan since ANH first came out in 1977. I will be coming with Salvador this weekend to movie night to watch ANH on the big screen. I look forward to chatting with you all on the boards and meeting some of you Saturday.

    Welcome, Bill and Darth Copperbottom (who I'd call by his/her real name if it were provided- It's SMT tradition, and at the Emperor's insistence.)

    Looking forward to seeing a lot of the newbies at Drive-In Night this weekend, and at future SMT events.
