    I haven't seen any thread like this, I've always wondered how you guys have come up with your usernames. Mine is my first name.

    Mine should be obvious. :) There must be a limit to the number of letters you can use, because I wanted to make my user name, GrandpaBruce, but it would not let me.

    Mine is pretty simple really. Even though on another forum I am involved in a couple of my buddies have dubbed me "Beefy" (I kind of like it it's cool. They assumed my name meant Beef Burgers and Mayo .. Pretty good imagination and anyway Beefy has stuck! Actually mine is just my first two Initials and my last name.. So lets hear all the Officer and Gentelmen jokes.. LOL

    If you ment my nick, you're not only one: I get all the time lots of spanish messages in eMule net 'cause of that.

    [nostalgic on]George A. Romero is one of the most important people who have affected to my movie hobby: Death trilogy were one of the very first intelligent horror movies I saw, and they woke up my interest for seeing more of that kind of movies instead of brainless splatter flicks. He's also made many other good and deeper meaning films like Martin, Crazies (like Daniel already mentioned), Jack's Wife... Too bad that his newer movies have been only average ones, I'll hope that Land Of The Dead will make his name brighter again.[/nostalgic off]
