I have been intending to write this from weeks ago. The title came out days ago. Is not that Is a premeditated blog, it were just feelings I have, feelings which became Ideas, Ideas that are written together and became a blog.
Many of you have expressed how bad/angry/sad/ you feel because you cannot share your taste in movie or the intensity of your taste in movies and I was surprised that there were so many people in the world with the same feeling as me. I actually surprised myself a lot when I find out people with the same taste in music and movies like me, because there isn't a single person that I know, who I could possibly talk, share about movies and music. I got that look in their eyes that classify you as an ALIEN.
So why in the HELL I didn't know this site before?, why now?..where were you Schmoes when I was discovering Buffy? when I had to run into places and beg the guy not to sell the DVD to someone else (as if it was possible). Where were you Schmoes when I went to the Red Hot Chilli Peppers Concert?, Where were you Schmoes when I was in the University with 17 years old among a bunch of 30 and 40 something people? When I was getting my first tatoo? When I was a freak with the hair as Macy Gray, with no money in my pocket, when I had to quite the university, when I was dumped and cheated those unlimited times?.
I guess that this is the right time. That time internet was like an unreachable Demi/God, having a computer was an impossible dream, I did not know English at all. Everybody traveled around for each holiday season while I never knew how the hell an airport was. So my self-confidence is build from the thousand times I was cheated, from the times I was rejected, dumped and /or betrayed, and suddenly I stop caring if no one have the same music taste as me, or caring about the intensity of my love for movies, or being single or taken, or dating or whatever. Exactly at the time that happen I joined MFC and a whole universe was discovered into my eyes. This is not a site for being popular, of if your profile is the one with more comments, or if you are good looking, or rich, or poor, or single, or married, or taken, quoting Joblo himself (on my inbox people) "This is a site FOR movie fans made BY movie fans" and is all what I needed.
So this site comes with a lot of "featurettes" like friends, additional sites and wacky things that use to happen (like Vanity night, or Jhon LOcke day... that thing was fun!), but the most important things comes out unexpected... like this awful day when you feel cranky, when the office was a living hell of ego and hypocrisy, when the rain and the wind was so strong that took some one else's life away, when the people in the Gym was full of brainless people, when you reach home and your computer doesn't want to work, then finally at the very end of the day your computer cooperates, you log into MFC and you see Wallcrawller with his cute students singing a Christmast song, when you see him almost dancing and directing those little ones, and you remember what he wrote on his facebook " I love kids. I love teaching. I wouldn't want to be doing anything else." and it simply brings you to tears of joy to see a video of a fellow schmoe doing what he loves to do. This kind of things comes the day that you shout out: "I need to hear the voice of my schmoes".
So yes, this seems to be the perfect time to be here, because on a cranky crapy day you get this medicine right away.
Gotta love this place.
