Title: The RC Merchant Appreciation Thread
Post by: Trevor on May 24, 2010, 03:52:44 AM
This one is for our old friend Ronnie a.k.a Bela.

Great person, great guy who's been through a rough patch lately ~ he's part of the lifeblood of this family on here and I think we all should give him a group hug.  :smile:

He's cantankerous to his enemies but a true gentlemen to his friends.  I'd say if one member has been a foundation on this board it is him.  To RC  :cheers:

Here's to BMDO's ambassador from Michigan - the greatest Bela Lugosi fan of all time - and a true gentleman of bad movie fandom!  Hats off to RC!

He's a lovable rascal all right  :teddyr:  It's always interesting to hear what he's up to, or gotten himself into.

RC is great guy with a lot of problems.  I worry about the man, especially when he's without a computer.

He is also a great artist.  He is greatly influenced by Robert Crumb.  He graced me with an original drawing of Spock  done in this style and though he hasn't mentioned it here, he has done drawings for his local paper, he sent me one of those too. 


I hope he gets a computer soon.

RC is a fount - a FOUNT I tell you! - of information about the older films, stars, comics - you name it.  He's our very own Forry Ackerman!  I hope he can come back soon.  He adds dimension to the community here.

RC is amazingly well versed in the classics whether they be the best of the good, or the best of the bad, although he does seem to have a pronouced fondness for the so-called bad. He definitely knows his stuff and is one the most knowledgable fans I've come across on the web and I've stumbled across some great fans (themselves fountains of fandom experience, actually having grown up in the 50s & 60s and/or 60s & 70s) between here, Scifilm, the IMDB, Sinister Cinema and the Wormboard. I greatly miss RC's input here.

I'm reviving this old thread that TREVOR started nearly a year ago.  I don't think Ron Merchant ever saw it.  

BELA is a great guy who's got my back, especially when I am stumbling drunk. :wink: :thumbup:

RC is a good soda.  So since RC Merchant obviously sells this product he's tops in my book.

RC Merchant really knows what he's talking about. He's been around this board for a very long time, and I hope he sticks around for more.

But, man, if you're looking for a living database on bad movies, RC is your guy.

I have an image of RC as a loveable rogue who would do away with a woman's virtue and leave her breathless and begging for more but enough of a gentleman to oblige in spades.  :tongueout:

I"m sorry, did I just say that out loud?  :teddyr:

Here's to you RC, you incorrigible old bugger.  This Aussie gal loves you :cheers:

RC was the very first person I ever communicated with here. It was a conversation about the porno Bigfoot flick THE GEEK - and that pretty much sums up my great relationship with my fellow twisted MONSTER KID.

I've seen some of his artwork and it is FANTASTIC!

BELA RULES! BORIS DROOLS!  :teddyr:

hi
Although i am massive fan of Boris Karloff i have to concede and agre that RC is a cool guy.
I admire any person who is open and willing to discuss personal issues with clarity and honesty.
RC i hope you soon return and hopefully one day you and i may have a game of chess, just like the great Karloff and Lugosi of old.

So, RON, had you seen this thread before?  I think last year when TREVOR started it, you did not have computer connection...??

We think you're cool.   :thumbup: :smile:

I'm EDITING EDITING EDITING!!!   :smile:

Did I forget to appreciate RC?  Let me correct that oversight right now!

Fun RC Merchant fact: RC has "Love Beer" tattooed on his knuckles.  He was going to get "Love Hate," like the guy in my avatar, but he just couldn't bring himself to endorse hate!  This guy hates hate! 

(Except when it comes to WyreWizard).   :wink:

Good guy, even if he won't take karma.  :smile:

RC Merchant, what can I say. The guy is a freakin' legend on this forum, he's the heart and soul of the boards. I used to view him like a crazy 'ol uncle, but screw any generation gaps, he's just my buddy and we have a few things in common for sure. He's very modest and he's also very wise and cool as hell. I couldn't imagine posting on here without him around, he makes me laugh, he makes me cry and I love the guy. I feel I could always shoot the s**t with him about anything at all, and I hope that he'd always be there to converse with.
