I'M COMING FOR YOU!


« Reply #15 on: October 23, 2010, 06:28:16 AM »

hi
I have an idea(yeah sometimes i get them) now this is going to cost a bit of money(not much) and some patience.

This is my idea anyway, I live in the UK  and i currently own well over a thousand videos as well as hundreds of dvds, but i still would love to view some movies i just cannot get hold of ,this is where my idea comes.

Why don,t we set up a kind of global lending service ,i am quite happy to ship some of my movies to any of you guys that may wish to either swap them or just loan them for a couple of weeks until you have watched them .

I am quite sure most of you guys have video players/dvd players that are multi region and if not they don,t cost much..this way we can communicate as pen-pals as well as having the chance to share our passion for movies

I am aware that not many people would like this idea and i am aware that it would involve shipping costs and various other costs but it could work if you guys are willing to go an extra mile.
 what do you guys think?   am i a lunatic or do you like this idea?

What would be really cool would be a streaming movie we could watch in groups, and maybe converse through headsets. A carefully (or randomly) chosen double feature, maybe once every week or two. Might be the closest we come to watching a movie together. I can think of a few existing services that could be used to set that up.

Ideally, I'd love an annual convention of sorts, but that just isn't feasible for most of us.

Give this man a medal! Thats a great idea. TeddyR

I always think this place is fun, it's just missing a few people tghat add to the party atmosphere. I know I don't contribute much to the bad movie pages (because thaey can be hard to fin ion the UK) but I still very much enjoy reading the thought and opinions of you guys.

Well we'll certainly miss you!

I kind of know how you feel.  I don't troll around here as much as I used to when I had more time, but I treat it, I suppose, like extended family: you see them once in a while and catch up, but if you stay too long it gets kinda awkward and you feel like you should leave for a spell.

Then you come back, have a good time until you burn yourself out again and take a break.  I think many things, like the creative process, work like that: short bursts of output followed by periods of stagnation.

That way things keep fresh and you don't burn yourself out on the forums trawling for topics to talk about.

That or Menard's scared him off...  BounceGiggle


I'd love AndyC's idea barring the fact that I'm on the opposite side of the planet and the timezones probably wouldn't work in my favour.  It is a shame that its not as easy to meet in person an online group of pals, especially with the international nature of a forum online.

In any case, Trek, go pursue some other interests; I've done it before, albeit a bit quieter, and it was well worth it: I came back recently with more of an interest in the board.   We'll be here when you want to pop on by, even if it's only on occasion. 

The ideal would be you going on some crazy adventure so you can tell us all about it when you return!  Go on, do it!   Thumbup

That's a great idea. Trek and several of his fellow seniors at the center could charter a bus and go wild at a theme park. I see wheelchair races and shuffleboard tournaments. Thumbup

I found this place almost four years ago and LOVE IT here!  I enjoy the eclectic nature of our conversations, our shared love of truly awful cinema, and the chemsitry of the place.  I need to post more movie reviews - I'm just so busy right now that I barely have time to watch anything, much less post about it!  I do skip every single "FAME OR SHAME" thread, and wish the whole thing would go away - but I  understand that other people enjoy it immensely, and they may feel the same about me and Lester endlessly batting historical and political issues back and forth. But WE enjoy it, and try to be civil about it.  Bottom line - Trek, I hate to see you go and hope you come back.

But this place is my home, and I'm here to stay!

I don't have any problem with the place at all. I'm here for the long haul.

Of course, being a thousands of years old Ayleid sorceror king, I've done just about everything.  Besides, there's no 'Net access in Oblivion, and my ancient home of Garlas Malatar dosen't have much going on in it these days, so what's an Ayleid to do?   Twirling

This is an OK place  Cheers

I blame the lack of Halloween spirit  Wink
Actually, this place has become like Facebook. People seem to be more interested in sharing random thoughts and what they are doing at the moment. Personally I don't see fun in that but, whatever.

I won't do facebook, so I hope Menard understands.  I never respond to Facebook invitations, and though I GUESS I'm registered over there, it is perplexing and a bit of a mystery to me how that could be...

AHD: you can be 'invited' to join FB if someone who IS on FB has your e-mail address in their contacts list.  It's not automatic - they have to choose to invite you.  FB prompts members to do so, with some persistence.   Lookingup

Personally I don't have the time to do the level of posts I might have attempted in the past now that I have a little bit more of a busy life and a girlfriend. Sure others are busy with their everyday lives too, that's why it's important that new posters do come here...so what if they rehash some of the same stuff, sometimes I'm still willing to rehash, sometimes I'll be encouraged to check out something new or see something from a different viewpoint thanks to one of these newcomers. Sometimes I might even be forced to rethink something I'd thought before. No doubt too this site is hurting with great former regulars like Ghouck, Circus, CheezeFlix, Susan and many others posting here less or MIA but hey there's still some great regulars here - Paquita, Skull, Darksider, Bull, Allhallowsday, Rev. Powell, HappyGilmore, 3mnkids, AndyC, lester and many many more. It's great Doggett is back. Hopefully RC will return in the near future. Hopefully Ash will eventually post more. Trevor seems to be gone lately--perhaps on vacation? But I'm sure things will pick up and taper off again then pick up again and the cycle will continue. I do like the idea of pen pals...maybe we could do a thread where we put up particular interests and people could PM each other if they'd like to try the pen pal thing? Just a thought. I don't have high speed so I can't really do any of these interactive internet things myself right now.

With regards to Facebook, I'm on it but I never play any of the games, hardly ever use any applications. Mostly I just use it to keep in touch and keep track of old friends to see what they're up to and it's a place they can contact me at any time should they want to. Honestly I'm not on there too much. Mostly I'll just post something, often a quote I liked, and then disappear for a few days unless I get e-mails or just randomly check in from time to time.
