KING Of All Schmoes
It seems like every day these past few weeks has been a Schmoe's birthday on this site and today is no different. Now I feel like I've been on JoBlo.com/The Forums for a good portion of my internet-browsing life and to be honest I can't remember a time on MFC without Derek. I can't.. and I won't. This dude literally embodies what the good in this site is all about with constant movie discussions/updates, an emphasis on film > everything and Subway sandwiches. I can always count on a rough day being made better by coming onto MFC and Derek is a huge reason for that. This site was basically formed to document your movie-watching experience and get other people as engaged in your thoughts while watching them as you are, and that's why just visiting his profile is like a way of virtually hanging out with him for a day.
Seriously though have you guys even watched his movie reviews? Because if you haven't then I'm pretty sure you're not using YouTube the right way. HIS GODDAMN ALIEN 3 REVIEW HAS LIKE 407,000 HITS! That's more than anything I've done in my life combined and multiplied by 20,000. He has a strong passion for film, TV, Kubrick, Alien, horror and all things Canadian and for that I fucking salute him. So Happy Birthday buddy, I think this blog is my way of coming out in my life for you.. but I promise it's not in the way Nite Owl does (who btw is hiding in your closet right now waiting for the ultimate Birthday surprise).
