Does the new job still allow you to see films five or six times at the cinema each week? ;)

Actually I'm back to the same location that I was last year where I had more access to theaters, so yeah more movies but loads of work for now with a better position.

I enjoy having others challenge my box office convictions and seeing them sometimes shattered. It's nice having a big and diverse group of people who are capable of doing that and more than willing to. I've really enjoyed your analysis Magnus, both when it conflicted with mine and when it agreed. Best of luck with whatever you do.

I can't believe nobody (especially Magnus himself) posted something like this. It was the perfect opportunity.

I’m not sure what exactly changed but I’ve lost the desire to talk extensively about film culture online, from box office to film criticism. It’s not just KJ; I don’t even care to engage on other film forums. I love watching movies still but that burning desire to express my thoughts and feelings on all things cinema is gone. The fact that I don’t feel guilty or sad about “leaving” just affirms my decision to do this. It’s just time.


Bro. The fuck?

Gonna miss you man. But I reckon this is pretty dumb (no offense). It's an internet forum. If you feel like posting, post; if not, don't.

Making out like you have to break-up with us all is just weird. WoKJ is literally only ever 5 seconds away via your smartphone. It doesn't need to be a big deal if you don't post as much as you used to. :)

But this is just hoping you actually come back. You're a total legend, and I wish you well.

(Come back tho)

Post Re: So....I’m out
Just saw this...

I feel you, as we grow older, we spend more time on responsibilities, new adventures, and this sometimes draws this away from online communities as we develop more in the real world.

I joined BOM in a time when I felt alone with few friends in the real world. Online communities became a place for me to socialize and explores hobbies including my love for movies and my greater for love for over dissecting them.

And Magnus, you were there right from the beginning helping me defend Revenge of the Sith.

It sounds weird because we have never actually met, but I feel like you are a long time friend in some way.

Go on and enjoy life, but if you find your way back here, I will always have great respect for you.

Yeah, I'm out too.

Algren was tolerable for a while, but without Lecter threatening him to behave, he's a fucking clown show.

I hope the site dies because of him.

Eh Chippy, its not like he is bullying you like with libs. It is a mutual disliking that you both mention often and actually makes the forum better since it keeps the blood feuding in a small bubble. Algren is much nicer to everyone else when you are around.

Problem? Whatever, Excel. Not that it gives me any immunity, but I'm the most active poster here. Without me, the forum might already have died. At a time like this, the forum needs loyalty. You cannot question my loyalty. But we can certainly question yours and Chippy's. You hardly ever post, and Chippy leaves more frequently than his menstrual cycle. But if I'm such a big problem, then by all means contact Lecter/MadGez and get me banned. It won't be difficult to do. Then we'll see if the forum suddenly gets hundreds of members.

Post Re: So....I’m out
Guys... Aren't we all well past the days of message board insults and member behavior affecting us? Algren is often an abrasive ass. Should he be more considerate in responding to members here? Maybe, maybe not. In the end, he's not making people leave. Either don't respond, or ask him, if he's so great, why he continues to stay and interact with us plebs on our small, slowly-dying, little forum? I don't care one way or another how he, or anyone, behaves, but I appreciate that he's an active forum member.

And honestly, before anything can be planned or decided upon -- aside from individual posters becoming more active and/or attempting to increase traffic -- we need to reach out to Lecter and MadGez for a clear response on what's needed, if anything (maybe they're content with the state of the forum and its finances), to help keep the forum running if it's indeed in trouble.

I, for one, would certainly appreciate a response prior to an unannounced server shutdown.
