    I have been sitting here and thinking that it appears as if we don't have a thread other than those in New Members, or our profiles, where we can talk about ourselves and post pics (at least until Borsk digs one up and embarrasses me on my poor search skills again ;) ). It's time to come out from behind the username and introduce yourself to the world!

    darthskellington Dark Lord of the Typos

    Real Name: Warren
    Age: 23
    Location: Avinger, Texas
    Marital Status: Single
    Kids: nope
    Pets: Had 2 dogs, which are currently living in Oregon with my parents. (Sebastian--Chow, Skipper--Australian Shepherd)

    Hobbies: Aside from Star Wars and other Sci-Fi/toy interests, I collect all sorts of junk, ranging from any antiques that appeal to me, funerary collectibles, and helping family/friends with their collections. I also enjoy the outdoors, though i have little free time to do anything.

    Fave Movies: Topping my list is LOTR, Nightmare Before Christmas and Edward Scissorhands, Silence of the Lambs, and Indiana Jones. I also like Tim Burton movies in general, Monty Python, Dark City, Ravenous, and some John Carpenter( The Fog, The Thing, and Big Trouble in Little China :p )

    I also like good anime, such as Tenchi and Cowboy Bebop. Gundam Wing and some of the UC Gundam series are good too, although I'm not up to date on all the latest Cartoon Network imports anymore.

    Fave music: Beethoven, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, to name a few :cool:

    Picture: 10 points to anyone who remembers where I posted a pic of myself last year. If anyone gets it right, I might post a slightly more updated pic here tomorrow.

    Well, s'almost 3:30am. I guess that means I should try and :sleep:

    Are you a Star Wars kid?

    I probably cheated a bit.


    Rather than repeat the same type of stuff that's already been said, I'll give a "weird fact":

    I hadn't ever really watched Stargate SG-1 before (couple of episodes here and there). In the past couple of weeks I've watched season 1-4. Cool.

    Well, it looks like Borsk is our winner. Congrats Borsk, you've won 10 Skellington Points! The use of these points will be determined :p Just think of them as Jedi Master Points for now. I'll think up something a few years from now after several hundred people start signing a petitions.

    Well, I guess I have to live up to my word and post a newer pic. I would post one of me in my Jack Skellington costume, but that involves scanning a picture, and I'm too lazy. Then I thought I'd post a rather charming normal pic of myself, but considering the estimated male:female ratio here at the Spy, I figured I wouldn't benefit much from it. ;)

    So, I'm posting a scary pic that will frighten off all the remaining ewoks. I made this as a joke to send miniature "shrunken heads" to my friends. Yes, that is a scan of myself (I don't recommend scanning yourself, it probably causes dain bramage).

    This was over a year ago, before I had to shave and get a haircut in order to find a job.

    Cool pic, Skellington. Anyone tell you you looked like a blonder Kirk Hammett?

  16. darthskellington

    darthskellington Dark Lord of the Typos

    Thanks Barada. Nope, I hadn't heard that one until now. Although I think on two occaisions I've been told I had a slight resemblence to Val Kilmer. Actually, there's a SW story in that:

    When I went to the Shreveport Sci-Fi Expo back in 2001, I got to meet several SW actors in person (my first and only time). At the end of the autograph line-up was Alan Ruscoe (E1 Plo Koon, among other characters). He was last in line, and some people were actually skipping him, having gotten the autographs they came for (Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Aurra Sing). Naturally, I wanted to meet everyone, and my friend and i talked with him for a while. It was his first ever US appearence, btw. Anyway, he and his assistant (girlfriend, wife?) came to the conclusion that I looked a little like Val from the nose down. How anyone comes to that concusion, I don't know. But if Plo Koon says I look like Val (a star of WILLOW, no less), who am I to deny it :p

    And in other news, this is my 500th post! WOOHOO! :dance:
