Yes and no - it's quite nice to get a bit more personal info on people we may know from forum discussions, but don't necessarily have much of a picture of outside of the interweb, and could help newbie forum-ular types get acquainted more easily.

I take your point, but in the longer term we'll have fresher (and hopefully prettier) faces wandering through.

Well, if we're doing the introductions thing........

I'm Hugh, although I'm still not changing my screen name despite what Funk, Mr Tambourine Man, Restless Stranger and the Constant Serpentine may do.
I'm a fairly well preserved (or well pickled) 34, and managed to find my way from Glasgow to London over the course of about 10 years, where I work now as an architect. Just along the road from Mr Tambourine Man, apparently. I've been married to Jenny, (who shall also be known as Mrs Atticus) for nearly 7 years now and she's fabulous.

I read a varied range of comics, from Hellblazer to Batgirl, and used to fancy myself as an amateur comic artist (which Pal & Josh are currently doing their best to encourage me - sorry I'm taking so long guys). I like a pretty wide range of movies, and have a fondness for detective novels (Inspector Rebus & Vice-Questore Aurelio Zen being my two current faves).

I drink far too much red wine, enjoy Guinness when in the pub, G&Ts or gold tequila & lemonade when in the mood for shorts, and expensive single cask malt whiskies even though I can't tell the difference. I like a good smoke although I've recently cut down and unexpectedly found myself in the middle of a drought too.

I spend my spare time watching Celtic on the TV and occaisionally watching Spurs in the South Stand (when my mate gives me his season ticket), sitting at home drinking lots and have dawn-patrol DVD sessions when my wife's away on work. Currently learning Italian at evening classes.

I'm a tireless animal lover, as my 1984 conviction for bestiality will attest...............oh bugger.
What's that film that you love?
What film?
The one about the fucking hairdresser, the space hairdresser and the cowboy. The guy, he's got a tin foil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's fucking fucked his sister. Lego! They're all made of fucking lego.

My name is Lou K and I like all you guys and gals.

I am the other half of the Battlin' K brothers.

I like to party. I like to hang out with my friends, grill up some food, pound brews, drink bourbon whiskey and smoke doobs on any and all occassions.

I have a rediculously large action figure collection. I love video games of all kinds, comic books, sci-fi/horror movies and all kinds of music.

I like getting buzzed and coming here to chat with folks. Everyone is really cool and I feel I've made some good friends.

Sometimes I feel sad that we all can't really party together. :(

same here... I wonder, how much of the world did you manage to see before settling in California. (can't bring myself to call you "Andy", not yet)



Hpefully I'm not done travelling yet as I've only been to some 30-odd countries mostly in the Middle East and Asia as well as the well-worn parts of old Europe and the then USSR.  Regretably the only part of South America I've ventured in so far is Peru but I would so love to be in the jungles of Brazil during the US election just 'cause I'm so sick of all this hubub.  And if, god willing, I'm ever in Santiago, I'll buy you a drink.

  Well when you stop to think on how big the world is and how many countries exist both officially and unoficially then it does not seem like all that much really....

I'm John Goodrich.  You may remember me from such threads as "Why we don't have a biography of John Constantine," "Keanu Reeves; Wooden or just stupid?" and "Let's hang Akiva Goldsman from his ankles and throw bottles at him."

Rule #1 to posting on this forum - don't take anything Rogan says personally, or seriously for that matter!

Anyway, this is a wonderful series, and I'm eternally in Rogan's debt for bringing it to my attention.
