    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Haha I was 22 when I joined dude! I'm 33 now, haven't been on much lately, life has got full of distractions and I spend much less time on forums than I used to purely because I'm always busy with something or other. I did get in the army eventually and currently in training as a reservist, as well as finally getting into a good civvy job that pays me a decent wedge! I'm still the same old me though, still loving zombie films, still gaming when I get chance, still going out on the town when I can and despite heading for my mid 30's I can still pretty much pass off as being mid 20's

    I remember when I first found HPOTD. It wasn't long after I'd first seen Day of the Dead IIRC ... back in the old DiscussionApp days ... blimey ... I was just a scruffy little teen gawping at Max Power magazines with my friends in the school yard back then.

    I love that, even with people coming and going over the years, our little enclave in this corner of the Internet is still here. When I first turned up here the zombie genre was in a pretty weak state, it had a hell of a back catalogue to its name, but not much going on at that time - now it's a huge deal and we've got two damn good zombie TV shows to watch!

    It's rather nice to scroll through this thread and see some old familiar names (and even avatars) pop in.

    I don't even bother now. My pecker only shoots dust bunnies from lack of use.

    Dude, when this place first started the Romero films, by and large, were the zombie genre (yeah there was fulci's stuff and few others but the Romero trilogy was the focal point. Then along came "28 Days Later", "Shaun", ad infinitum. The genre is so oversaturated that it is hard to separate.the wheat from the chaff.

    Hell, that was so long ago that Shootem and I had sunny dipositions and were internationally known optimists. Now look at what middle.age has done.

    No, then it would be puffs of air, like an unloaded BB gun.

    No, sadly, my plumbing is so dusty with disuse now, when I go to piss it's like using a sandblaster...

    Very true. In my formative years getting into the zombie genre it was Romero as the representative of the genre, with various low budget Euro-Zombi flicks scattered around. There's so much zombie content now, but then - apart from Romero - about the most I had aside from GAR was "Zombi 2" and "Zombiethon"! Initially I rather dug Zombi 2, then I got more teenagery about it and took a disliking to it because it was ripping off GAR, but then I grew to love the Euro-Zombi movement.

    Wouldn't you be more akin to Jackson Pollack then?

    Mmm, good point.

    Actually, should have gone with Van Gough. Mentally unsound, unknown failure in his lifetime, cut off a part of his ear & sent it to a chick trying to impress her. Sounds about right.

    According to my profile, it's been nine years since I regularly bugged everyone. Pretty cool to see a few familiar faces still kicking around though.
    On hiatus since 2006. I lied a few years ago about being back from somewhere.

    I guess I'm back again.

    Wow, welcome back. You were an old timer, when I just got to the forums.

    Thanks! I actually have lurked around from time to time, I do a lot of reading in the fiction section. But decided a post about old members might be a fitting place to jump back in.

    Can't remember if I've mentioned, but the old forums (I coded) are still buried away under a pile of dust if you look hard enough - They've been taken over by the Fiction Section, but they're still there
