Now we can't confirm he's legit!

I put the name up first so he could be anyone.

Pretty sure he played/plays an instrument in a band...

Show us it's the real you mc

Don't worry guys. It's really me(Joe Begos is my real name). I actually met Andy in person a few months ago haha. I'm still obsessed with Box Office but don't really lurk any forums. Put my movie knowledge to good use and started making them though! First feature just got released by IFC in the US earlier this year(Hey MCG- Accent should be putting it out over in Aus real soon!). Living out in LA now, just trying to get stuff going.

What the hell you guys been up to?!? Weird to see so many of you here after the fact. What was that, 2002? 03? I must have been intolerable. Ha!

Yeah, saw Joe at a bar in Coolidge Corner, then caught his flick at a midnight show. My one friend drunkenly passed out during it, but my gf was scared - take that as an endorsement.

MCG def check it.

We have a few more on their way :)

What the hell is with the sign-up process and having to wait for an answer to the question? We need to be encouraging people to sign up, not adding extra steps and making them wait a day.

Agreed. I almost gave up completely. To be honest the entire forum is not intuitive. Even ignoring the sign-up process, buttons are tiny and hard to find and even formatting my avatar to make it work was a 20 minute ordeal. Now I sound like an asshole complaining about a completely free forum that doesn't owe me anything. Wasn't I voted most likely to become a Hollywood douchebag? Has it happened? :shades:

We don't have many new members joining, the process is more difficult, but it makes life much easier within the confines of the forum itself. We don't have to worry about bots, spam, etc. The answer is the same, just forward it on to whoever you're inviting.

Will do. Sorry for my complaints. I was all :disgust: due to my SSS, Spontaneous Snooty Syndrome.

It's all good, it is a pain. I like it even less, since I'm the one who has to answer all the emails.

This is Daniel, a.k.a. TylerDurden a.k.a. TonyClifton a.k.a JarJarBinks :cool:

I wanted to stop in to say hello, say thanks to MCG for creating the thread and for letting me know about it and thanks to everyone who has posted in the thread.

Time does fly. The old BOR forums were so much fun and I think it was a really, really great group of people who posted there. I'm sorry we weren't able to keep it going longer than we did.

heheh, The Anna Paquin riding a broomstick comment by Gustavo is also something that pops into my head at least once or twice a month still to this day.


I do have some sad news to pass along. But I'm going to do that a bit later in a different post in this thread.

My thanks again to everyone. It was really meaningful to me to see this thread last night. :)

I bet it was meaningful, you're the man responsible. :)

I've been to various forums over the years and worldofkj is the closest to BOR I've come across. Sometimes the comradery around here is amazing, and it's from a core 30 or so posters that have consistently been coming back for years.

If anyone misses BO speculation, forum interaction and movie banter, this is place to join. It's obviously enough of an honour to hold membership at the same place as Magnus, but there are many other good reasons to join as well.

The dynamics in personalities around here is at least as entertaining as BOR was.

I've managed to track down Omenvoir but he's made direct contact difficult. I'm going via his friends haha. He definitely needs to be here.

Sent it to What About John and Teppo, as well. Kinda sad how quickly I knew how to find people.

Damnnnn TylerDurden in the flesh - dude, I've hit you up on FB before - you never respond. WTF. :watsup: Hope all is well though dude (RE: sad news)

One thing I like about a few forums is they've instituted a rep/like system. If you like what a poster says, you can "like" the individual post, or offer "rep" to the poster himself. Kind of encourages activity and quality engagement.

You can also dislike, bad rep posters. Not sure if its possible to do that here?

ok, now for the sad news :(

Sorry to have to pass this along, but after seeing this thread, I felt I should. John Barrera, my cousin who co-owned BOR (and posted occasionally as King John), passed away suddenly back on June 22.

Here is the post I made on my Twitter account that day:
