I love this place, if it wasn’t for the people here I’d be long gone. First I was this stupid kid passionate about QT, getting excited about stuff everyone already knows and all that, but that passed and I don’t remember the last time I actually visited a QT film section. It’s mostly chat and stuff about other films now - and that’s the best thing about the forum, it’s full of movie lovers, in general, not just QT’s, like most other forums based on directors are.
I love how everyone’s got a personality here, seriously. I guess I like everyone, no kidding. A lot of stuff irritates me about some members, mostly childishness, but then I realized that it’s childish itself to GET irritated by it. And I got sort of ashamed that it seems to some like I’m actually willing to start fights, maybe I really am, though I think I’m not. Haha, this is already beginning to sound like some group-hug thing, but whatever. Lots of us could use it.
Even Ify, you son of a bitch, I’ll admit I like you, never thought I was going to say this, but whatever, you’re just terribly hard to get along with. It’s funny sometimes to irritate you but then at one point it goes unfunny, cause you make a big deal out of it. It would be boring as hell if there weren’t people like you around, to balance out the sugarsweetness of companionship and friendship. Admit it - we both love this place, and quarreling makes it seem less like we’re hopeless geeks. You study psychology, you’ve gotta know there’s truth in it. Ify, you know I like you, so stop acting like an asshole and… no, actually don’t, think of what the forum will turn into.
Okay, never done this before, but there’s a first time for everything, so here goes:
Kilgore for his sense of humour - unchallenged, also honesty and that genuine Texan style (you may say you ain’t got it, but you’ve got it);
Scarface for badassness and putting people in their right places, another guy with terrific sense of humour;
Seth for the love-is-what-it’s-all-about attitude;
Me for friendliness and love for EVERYTHING, I can’t believe how there’s never a bit of anger in you, you make this place a lot more cosy;
Laydback for the awesome way he matches with his nickname and the way he is superior than ALL of you guys in cinema-knowledge but will never point it out (maybe it’s just grindhouse cinema, but you never know with this guy);
Hung Fist for seriousness and the way I can relate to him in many ways, at least I feel like it;
Angel for cynicism;
Seb for holding this place together no matter what and calmness and the way he doesn’t seem to be here much, but he’ll always show up when necessary.
I hate how these lists always make people that aren’t mentioned disappointed, but I can’t list everyone, so EXPRESS YOURSELVES more, so you are easier to remember and definitely worth mentioning.
And, of course, I found cyber-lili here in this forum which was like the best thing. You all know just how awesome she is!
I love the QTA!
