Same name, same avatar to which I have no commercial rights, since it's a Pre-Raphaelite painting of Medea.

Even when a contract is clearly unenforceable, I won't sign. Especially when it is inapt and a rights grab, I won't sign. I've walked away with zero regrets from several instances of contracts that were rights grabs, or loyalty oaths, or attempted to control my future actions.

In this situation I have little to lose, since I don't use my real name here and I sign up to websites using an email address that does not connect to my main one. But having little to lose isn't the point.

The emojis are a little...busy.
Lily, you made it. I wasn't sure that you wouldn't just walk away- with like explosions in the background, and you don't even flinch.

I have to respond to this. That person is the person I am in my head.

me too, but then I'd turn to the camera and ruin it with my defective sense of humor.

Good times. Memory building times. I confess, I've never seen a Jack Black movie. (I think.)

Really? You've never seen The Jackal with Bruce Willis and Richard Gere? How about last year's Jumanji? Okay, maybe Goosebumps from a handful of years ago?

I'd never heard of the guy until I saw King Kong a few years ago. (The awesome Peter Jackson re-re-re-remake, not the more recent and thoroughly crap re-re-re-re-re-make.)

Wait, that was Jack Black in The Jackal. Wow. I just thought of him as Mouse from Beauty and the Beast (the original TV series). But maybe that wasn't him.

I plan to see Jumanji, but I've never actually seen him in a movie he starred in, either.

hes a friend of a friend of a friend. Been to a few things, but I'm sure he doesn't know/remember me. I'm like an asteroid that falls into their gravity well for a brief time, then I'm back out into space. I know a lot of stars, but some of them are just black holes.

Well, he didn't headline in The Jackal, but he gave an Oscar-worthy performance.   :wink:

I am kind of a JB fan. I am probably the only person that saw and loved The Big Year. Of course, I was already a birder so there's that.

plus, it's always fun to see the Rage Cage cameo in each movie. I loved him as the eunich in Year One

Oh! That's the guy that lost his arm in The Jackal, wasn't it? Well, right before he lost his life. Okay, I've officially seen a Jack Black movie.

Was a rough day not being able to access the writersanctum this afternoon/evening. I danced   :dance: like a banana when I was able to log back in.


No kidding.  Felt like a month.  Was it a month?  It may have been.  I think I'm in a time warp.  And no, Dr. Furter, I'd rather not do the time warp again.

This was a really cool forum back in the day.  (I think that day was Tuesday.)  But now, with all this riff-raff showing up, it's just not the same.   :cry:

Yesterday, I was on page one of the member list.

Now, I've dropped to page three.

This forum is worse than Amazon.

Confession time...

I am the riff-raff.  I'm one of those self-loathing riff-raff, uh, persons.  I just need a writer's sanctum.  A writer's sanctuary.  Sanctuary!  Why was I not made of stone like thee?

Okay, I'm better now.

I've been a lurker reading The Other since '12 or '13. I finally figured it was long past time to join and say hello and thanks for everything I've learned so far.

Welcome to all the new folks that came in while I was stranded on the outside and banging my fist on the door all day yesterday. So many familiar names and avatars...and a few mysterious ones too who have gone anon. So exciting to see the place filling up with awesomeness.

Also, Dan...you may have been page one, but I signed up an entire twenty minutes before you. The Riff-Raff invaded early! Muah-wa-ha!


Science Fiction is my game.

I'm here. I was here already, before the glitch with the SSL stuff, and got wiped. When I registered I was too lazy to type my full name. So I only typed three letters.

Jumanji! Just watched it a week or so ago. I didn't want to because I loved the original Robin Williams  :icon_cry: movie. But GD had seen it several times in the theaters and she convinced me. I'm glad it was so different. And Jack Black was so cool. I'll have to check out some of his other movies.

I'm here, too. I've added formerly to my user name. However, I've never been anonymous since my real name is on the front of my books. I have a busy week and my tech skills are negligible so I won't be adding my avatar or books until I have time to figure it out. I'm still sad about what happened over there but feeling much better after seeing so many familiar names here.

Hey, great to be here! Mostly lurked on the other board under the same name. Recently changed that name to something anonymous. The URL to change my profile picture and signature is gone but when it's back I'll be using a different avatar (a more recent picture).

Hi, uber-lurker from the other board.  I'm sad about the VS-instigated armageddon but excited to see what's going on here with this exodus, feels like an important moment, a chance to reboot the community. 

Big thanks to Tim and all those who have helped out.

I'm here. Same name (I think) as Kboards, but I never posted there. For some reason I just felt overwhelmed. It feels much more comfortable over here.

Snap! Hoping to lurk less and participate more here.  :smiley:
