Deej was one of my favorites. He introduced a few Erol Flynn films that I hadn't heard of and then I managed to find and watch them. Saw all the significant Flynn films due to Deej's imput.

I think about JohnL from time to time also. he was always a decent guy and I felt so bad for him when he told us all that was going on. I wished we could do something for him somehow.

I am glad that you were able to recover as well as you have menard. I was worried about you too when you told us what was going on. I expected you to disappear as JohnL did. I am glad you are here.

Interesting discussion, and I read with curiosity the comments regarding Scifilm's board (and beg Andrew's forgiveness for reviving this derailment of his thread).

Through natural evolution Scifilm's board discussion tends to be a more serious and almost academic in it's approach to film than most boards (even treating some of the worst schlock with respect...and occasionally even reverence--sheesh!).  It's both a weakness and a strength that the regulars there represent a wide diversity in interests with a lot of specialization.  (Nobody knows more about silent SF movies than Steve Joyce for example.)

Such specialization does tend to limit discussion to a degree, because so many films written about  are simply not available to the general viewing public.  There's an awesome thread going on right now on the BBC Ghost Stories for Christmas series, but with only two posters (me and one other guy) because of their limited availability here in the states.

Like Jase said too, it's a small enough group that we've talked to death a lot of the commonalities (movies that everyone has seen) and now tend to pursue our own areas of interest, posting reviews about our discoveries.  I will say that some of the best movies I have ever seen have come to my attention based on the trusted ravings of someone on the board--movies that I would likely never have seen otherwise.

Message boards are interesting creatures.  They have personalities and life-cycles of their own, some longer than others.  Scifilm's has been a successful run regardless of what the future holds for it.  It is kind of cool that my very first two posters from 2001 when I launched the site (Andrew Kidd and Chadzilla -- Jase was an early arrival too) still drop in and post regularly. 

Of course, I still hang out here at Badmovies.org whenever I can, and I was a regular here before I conceived of launching my own site.  Andrew B is my virtual Godfather. :)

Yes that's absolutely true. Chadzilla and Andrew were on the Scifilm board well before I was. Andrew knew me from Space: The Imagination Station's board located at spacecast.com, the first board I ever posted on regularly on the net towards the end of the 1990s. Andrew told me first about Scifilm and eventually I wrote a couple of reviews for the site, got to know Gerry and the rest is history. The TV Files, a major project I currently work on for Gerry's site I never really imagined would grow as big as it eventually did when I started as I thought it would be just something I'd post every then and again, something different but inspired by Dave Sindelar's Musings/Movie of the Day nevertheless.  I used to check out badmovies.org before I ever came to Scifilm for its hilarious review section. I still love that section of this site a great deal although I try and avoid reading the reviews until I've seen the film in question (spoilers you know). I never even realized badmovies.org had a message board until years later although I did on occasion speak to Andrew B. when I posted on the IMDB boards and when that went downhill, I invited Classic Camp, Dr. Mality, telegonus, IronWolfe, clore and a few others to migrate over to Scifilm. At the same time almost, Sinister Cinema's board was having troubles and many posters from there became Scifilm regulars too as well as some of those I invited from the Spacecast board. It's amazing the divergence and differences between all those folks (all of whom had more in common that many still realize to this day) and possibly I'm likely the one most responsible for putting a large part of that melting pot all together.  Still it produced a lot of memorable moments and many great threads and discussions even if some folks would eventually clash against each other enough that some now seem to unfortunately be former friends of mine.

Gerry knows his site very well. Yes many posters there take their films extremely serious, some perhaps a little too serious, some just plain stubborn and set in their ways... Some I've known to absolutely despise the very idea of people talking about, completely totally unwilling to look at or even discuss the possibility anything from the late 70s on could be any good?! But regardless Gerry tried his best to keep things civil and in the face of that, I know not how he did as well as he did.  Still it's great to see posters on the site who do give the site a bit of the old energy it used to have like the poster with whom Gerry's discussing the BBC ghost stories.

Now back to your regularly scheduled badmovies "missing posters" discussion. I apologize if I've highjacked this thread.

Yeah, I said awhile back that I regretted rising to Squishy's bait and calling him names -- He was, indeed, interesting --
The guy I miss the most -- unless I'm just not reading where he's posting/maybe he's still here & I just don't see him, is Vermin.
Vermin had a band called Demons of Stupidity, and, for a young guy, had a depth of knowledge on strange music and even stranger movies that I just got the biggest kick out of.
Real bright guy -- Anyone seen Vermin?

Susan's another one we haven't heard from in a long time.  IIRC, she was having some trouble with a coworker/stalker right before she quit posting.  I've always hoped that things worked out for her.

BlackAngel was another one -- I think he was a subway conductor in NY, and was in line to possibly go to Iraq at some point.

It has been a good six months since Vermin posted, but he last used his account in November.  He definitely is missed, because I can remember that he always had something interesting to say - be it an opinion or straight information.

Susan was around pretty recently, within the last month.  She had posted in the thread about "The Descent."  I know she was working on moving apartments.

That's an awful lot of meat to saw through.  Do you have something smaller around the house, like a cat or hamster?

I have a vague memory of AndyC gettinga  new job and moving to some small town in the great white north.  Or is that someone else?  He also wrote telling us about NORAD a few months ago.

Yeah, I remember the photo he posted of his new backyard, which was a very picturesque view.

You know, I have not seen Daveblackeye around lately, either.  He used to live in the town where I work, but I don't know if he finished school or not.

Daveblackeye has been around.  Looking at his profile, he was here today and posted.  He might just be posting in threads you are not following.
