Rather than have a new thread every time some new person comes aboard, let's try one master thread for it.
Okay, I guess I better go first, then.
"Fritz" isn't the name on my birth certificate, but it's been my nickname since I took German in my Junior year in High School--everyone in the class had to pick a German name, and I picked that one.
I'm a 33 year old worker in retail who dabbles in writing and art (several of the links on the board's main page will attest to that)
Favorite Movies: Ghostbusters, all the Star Wars films (yeah, even 1 and 2), most of the Star Trek movies (especially 2), Batman
Favorite TV shows: Mostly cartoons: Real Ghostbusters, Robotech, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, just about any Gundam (though Wing is awful gay...), Digimon, Trigun, the Daily Show.
Music: I disdain most popular music recorded after 1989. Mostly I like 80's stuff (the era of my youth) and earlier and later works of some of said artists (two favorites, Elton John and Chicago, actually date from the 70's after all...)

You know, this is actually the first official introduction I've ever posted on an GB board. Here goes...
My name's Jeff. I'll be 20 by the end of the month, and I'm presently unemployed and not going to college or anything like that. I also don't know why, but if it were a Family Feud category, the survey would probably say "Laziness" and "Indecision"...
My favorite movies are...far too many to mention them all, but let's see if I can't at least put a dent in the list. Ghostbusters(of course), Back to the Future Trilogy, All the recent Marvel Comics movies except Hulk(nothing against the film, I don't like Hulk's comics either. He bores me for some reason), The Evil Dead series, The Matrix Trilogy(yes, all of it. Especially Revolutions. The final battle was the most awesome fight scene ever and you all know it)...let's stop there for now.
My favorite TV shows...I could name about a thousand 80's/early 90's Saturday Morning cartoons, but right now I'm pretty much watching whatever's on Adult Swim. I'm a big Aqua Teen fan like Fritz, Justice League is awesome, Teen Titans is tolerable, and I like Conan O'Brien and The Daily Show. That's pretty much it. Cartoon Network and Comedy Central are really the only channels I watch anymore.
Music: A whole lotta stuff. I like a lot of80's rock...some heavy metal like Metallica and Disturbed...but you're most likely to find me listening to the theme music from video games and movies. Anything classical and heroic sounding, I guess.
My hobbies include video games (hopelessly addicted to the Mortal Kombat and Soul Calibur series), writing/art(I think we all know that though), staying awake for ungodly amounts of time to play Dungeons and Dragons (v. 3.5) with my friends, and avoiding the wretched light of the sun at all costs(And I'm only half-joking about that).
First intro thread I've actually posted in on time! But, here's who I am...
Name's CJ, which is a shorter way of saying "Cedric Jr.", which is my real name. London, however, is a writer's name: Bacon is the real one (kind of like Brian "Reilly" Walker).
I'm 17, but I'll be 18 by September and currently a senior in high school. I'm also employed in retail hell at Kmart.
Favorite movies...I have a very diverse tastes, but my all time faves are Ghostbusters (natch), the Indiana Jones triology, Evil Dead triology, most of the Star Trek films (hated 1 and 9), Star Wars films, Superman 1-4, and a slew of vintage classics starring Laurel and Hardy, Marx Brothers, Three Stooges, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, and Myrna Loy. I also love the comic book movies that have come out, particularly the Marvel ones (although I'll forever be a DC man)
Lately, I've found myself gravitating towards JRock and JPop, or Japanese Rock and Pop music. But I still love most hard rock like Stereophonics, Creed, Blink-182, and some others.
Favorite TV shows: Any anime on Adult Swim, like Case Closed, Inuyasha, Wolf's Rain, or Gundam Seed. Anime in general that's what I'll say! If it's an anime topic, you'll hear me dreg up some obscure ones.
I don't have a lot of hobbies outside of writing, video games, pinball, making custom action figures, making movies with my friends, and above all else, comic books (Green Lantern rocks!). Though my knowledge is only half that of Fritz and Jeff's.
My dog is a 400 pound demon who eats idiot Fanboys for breakfast.
My name is Briana Lawrence. (If you ever spell my first name with two n's I will kill you. Unless you suck up to me a lot.) I like the name though. It makes me special. Oh, and I'm not related to the retarted Lawrence brothers.
I have an alter ego in my fan fictions who is known as Dani Spengler. (She took forever to create. DO NOT ASK unless you want to hear a boring story. Or possibly interesting. I don't know.) I guess I'm also saying how much care I usually take in writing some of my stories. I have a site, but it isn't the world's greatest. I made it so I could post all of the stuff I've written that still needs some kind work.
Favorite Movies: Ghostbusters. (DUH! ), Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Indiana Jones, Batman, Air Force One, Mary Poppins, Godzilla, Innerspace, Spaceballs.... (I could go on and on. I have a whole list and shelves full of movies. I'm a big movie buff.)
Favorite TV Shows: Real Ghostbusters, Fairly Oddparents, The Drew Carey Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Buffy, Angel, Family Guy, Futurama, The Simpsons, CSI....(Once again. I could go on and on. I love a lot of shows. Mostly comedies and cartoons.)
Music: I'm into a wide variety of music. Mostly today's hits and old favorites. (No rap or opera.)
Hobbies: Sleeping, writing, reading....
I think that's everything people might be interested in. At least it's half-interesting. If you want to know more just say. I don't want to ramble to much. I have a tendency to do that and it just gets a little annoying. Anyway, hi and I hope to hang around for a while.

Time to introduce myself. Name is Jeremy Hicks. I'm a member of GBWC with Fritz and Jeff. And almost everyone here has mentioned at least one of my favorite movies or shows at least once. I live in a town called Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. And yes it sounds like it was named after a game show because it was. But Jeremy Hicks is my real name. I'm 23 and work at McDonald's. If you wanna know anything else about me, ask. ;D
Yes it's true, I hurt myself in my replies on this board. What about it?

Ahem, thanks for stealing my thunder, CJ. Yes, I am Brian "Reilly" Walker.
Reilly comes from Ben Reilly, the Scarlet Spider. In turn, Ben Reilly (actually a clone of Peter Parker), took his name from his Uncle Ben and Aunt May (Reilly being Aunt May's maiden name).
Why the fake name? Back in 1995, I didn't think it was such a good idea to go around with my real name online. So I went around as the Scarlet Spider. Should GBN ever come online, you can find my old(er) account under that name. Later, I decided I wanted to change to at least my real first name, and Reilly only seemed appropriate as a false second.
I love the name Reilly and you are all free to call me either "Reilly" or "Brian". Please don't call me "Walker" though.
I'm the co-founder of E.C.T.O. Canada, a Canadian Ghostbusters franchise (but not the Canadian Ghostbusters). Chris Davis is the other founder, and incidentally, the only other member.
I also run GBComm, the ultimate Ghostbusters Community Website.
You can catch me on the Macaddict.com message boards in MiniThink (that's the Ministry of Free Thought for the uninitiated).
