I'm really gonna miss this place.

I really, really don't want to write a farewell to the MFC. I really don't want this amazing place to disappear overnight. I've been apart of this community for 5 or 6 years and 'ghosted' the MFC universe a little bit before I became a member. Like other schmoes this community was, at times, a safe haven for me over the years. 2011-2014 were some tough years for me and I can say with 100% assurance that this place saved my life at times. There were days that interactions big or small with Beauski, Clancy or Anakin really helped me get out of my head. I'm not very close with my family and have only a couple of close friends that I talk to about shit so in all honest this place was my support system for a couple of years. Talking films and all around geekery allowed me to get back to want I loved and because of the MFC I went back to school and graduated from ETSU where I majored in Radio, TV and Film with a minor in Film Studies. I'm now running my own little production company with a couple of friends. Not only did this place help me get my mojo back professionally but also personally as I regained my confidence and met a beautiful, smart women that would become my wife. I'm so happy in life but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little afraid to lose this place. I know some of us will stay in touch and have fun interacting in the Facebook group but it's just not going to be the same. I want to thank JoBlo for giving us this oasis for as long as he could. I also want to shout out timmyd, Clancy, Beauski, Scotch, XSsoCX, Derek, Weapon, sLaShEr, klint, Walkaway and JL along with everyone else that has made this site into the family we have been/are. I love you guys and gals. I'm really, really gonna miss this place.

You might be an asshole that's made me suffer through too many terrible films, but it's been a lot of fun. Here's to the future my friend

Couldn't have said it any better man, will miss talking movies with you on here. Fb won't be the same because we all had our own unique names and personalities on MFC and with Fb you just don't have that. I'm raising my beer to you all and wishing everyone a happy new year and GREAT future ahead!
