Somewhere along the line fandom forgot that television, movies, comics and toys are supposed to be FUN. So many forums take everything far too seriously, and opinions have gotten far too aggressive. Let's not forget what it really is: it's called entertainment.
Here at ICE, we strive to remember that our lives do not depend on the next comic book movie being better than anything we've ever seen before in our lives. The point of all this media is to have fun and be entertained!
Criticisms and debates are totally welcomed and encouraged, as long as it can be done with some nettiquette. Flames will be deleted. There's plenty of other sites out there for that!
Let's have some fun here, people! Remember... It's Called ENTERTAINMENT!
FER'S SPOILER POLICY:
I won't give away any upcoming spoilers, but if I review it here then I'm assuming you've already seen or read it. Mostly 'cause I'm usually behind everyone else.
I ask that anyone posting comments please respect that and do the same. Thank you!
SHOW(s) CURRENTLY BEING COPIED OFF MY OLD VHS TAPES TO DVD:
· MISCELLANEOUS, which is actually a category of about 92 tapes where I stuck anything that I wasn't recording as a series.
I grew up in the Pittsburgh suburbs, then spent 10 years in the Philly suburbs, then married my high school sweetheart and moved back to the Pittsburgh suburbs.
I first got into SF around the age of 5, when I discovered that the Star Trek cartoon also had a live action version, and Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, phasers and the Enterprise all looked totally real. This led to a huge interest in space in general and science fiction in particular, that I've carried with me my entire life.
I was really into anime in the mid 80's and most of the 90's, and I was mostly known on the internet as "YellowDncr" back then. I sent out a Robotech newsletter as a part of the Disciples of Zor (a Robotech fanclub), ran "Yellow's Fansub Center," and then occasionally helped my wonderful wife Joy with her store, Joy's Japanimation. I pretty much burned out on anime because of that, but I still love Robotech & Macross.
Nowadays I spend my time taking care of my family, trying to make life for Joy as easy as possible as we raise our wonderful daughter Mylene.
