Title: Have a seat! Where you from? What's your name? What do you do?
Post by: Beavermoose on September 06, 2016, 06:24:33 PM
I thought I remember there being a topic like this that had filmspotters' names, age and location but it seems to have disappeared.
I think it's nice to learn a bit more about our fellow forum members.

Your Most Famous Person category got me thinking about who my person is, and if you count getting a picture taken in a wrestling ring I think it might be The Honky Tonk Man. Either him or J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr.

It's all very cozy. :) We are close, so I really like being able to spend holidays with them, on both sides of the family. The kids don't look much alike at all, actually, but people always say my brother and I don't look at all alike. ?? Dunno. Genes are weird.

Wow, that's super '90s oad! Living near family you're on good terms with is always nice. I'm 5 minutes away from my parents and my youngest two siblings. It's the only reason I'm still in Waco...well that and the low cost of living.

Name: Jake
Age: 17, senior in highschool
Hometown/Current town: The Woodlands, Texas
When I am not a slaving automaton bound to the egregiously unsatisfactory, over-generalized secondary schooling system, I am: reading, watching, listening, etc., outdoorsing it, writing, eating, debating, "gardening", attempting to cook, or playing around on the guit box, mandolin, or piano.
If I could be anywhere right now, I would be: the list could certainly go on; bushwacking in Wrangell-St. Elias or Frank Church Wilderness, doing a helpx in Georgia (http://www.helpx.net/hostlist.asp?host_region=385&network=3), or hand-rearing and aiding animals in Limpopo. (https://www.conservationafrica.net/project-categories/wildlife-care-rehabilitation/moholoholo-wildlife-rehabilitation-centre), to name a few. Ah, youth, you hold many possibilities.

Last book read: The Face of Another by Kobo Abe, Last Book Loved: If on a winter's night a traveler by Italo Calvino, Book Currently Loving: Fahrenheit 451 by Bradburry
@oneaprilday, new favorite town: Bellingham, WA. I was just there on the Labor Day Weekend! My dad and I backpacked in the North Cascades for my birthday. We based in Bellingham and went to Aslan Brewing Company and Mallard's on the last evening there. Terrific trip all around. I was meant to be born in the NW. I would be able to put backpacking or hiking on that list of activities, but one has to scrounge for such spots near Houston or else drive a great distance.

Here's a picture of the trip, btw:

Hey Jake, I lived in The Woodlands for about six years. Back then, it was a tiny suburb, now it's massive. I don't even recognize it anymore.

Hey Jake, I lived in The Woodlands for about six years. Back then, it was a tiny suburb, now it's massive. I don't even recognize it anymore.

You've got that right. This expansion does not jive with me, especially the amount of forested "lots" that have been obliterated to make way for something new and completely unnecessary. It is my home town, and I'm not discontent, but I cannot wait to get out.

Woo! Nothing like North Cascades beauty, and Bellingham's the best; you visited a couple of the town's great spots. Dish me up a scoop of Mallard's, please. Yum! :)  (Btw, you've got the NW bug, and now, you won't be able to get it out of your system.  ;) )

Hi chardy! Where are you standing in your picture?


Sandy! I thought you didn't post pics, or maybe I haven't been looking hard enough! :P

I think I've posted two pictures of me on the forum before. Let me see if I can find them...

:) They might not quite count!

They definitely count, but nice to see a fresh one! +1 for the motorcycle pic plz :)

I'm in the Aran Islands off Galway, Ireland. I also went to the more famous Cliffs of Moher but I prefer these ones.

The aerial view of the topography of the Aran Islands, looks like an ancient motherboard.

 I've been Googling those places and they are beyond breathtaking. So happy you got to see them both!

Is there an identified correlation between cinephilia and growing a beard ? We could have a proper beard contest just with the first page.

I do need to post a newer photo of the beard, but the right moment hasn't struck yet. I'm not that photogenic.

You have a fine beard, Sam.  Quite full.  I have a kind of wirey-Santa-hobo beard.

Future Occupation: Cinema owner. Will try to learn how to run one first. Any tips?  ;D

It's all angry customers, projector issues, unreasonable demands from the film distributors, etc. That being said, I feel like I'm actually really close to having my own theater. It likely won't be in a super awesome area or a new theater or anything, no recliner seats, but I will run it.

Are all the hobbies recent additions? I cannot imagine watching and rewatching so many movies (back in your more prolific days) and still finding the time to do so much.

Cooking came along in the past few years. Otherwise, no. Before I got into movies, music was my main obsession. Recently I'm getting back into music in a big way. Lately I'm on a big dub binge. I went through big videogaming and reading phases in my younger days, now I don't make much time for either though I still enjoy both. These days most of my leisure time (what little there is of it) is spent on TV.

You were the one I was hoping would respond to this. Although I wish you didn't have so many joke answers, it's nice to know a little bit more about DH, the human being. Pink Floyd was my first obsession. I even saw them twice (sadly, post-Waters).

I think calling me a human being is rather cruel for human beings. And if there weren't joke answers I think people would get worried.
