But I shall have to when DOTM comes out. It just helps that my birthday is on June 28th. So, for my birth day we'll have a Transformers party before 12. Only my family will be there though...since I have no friends. (Maybe one, but I haven't seen him in a while) and I shall watch both movies in anticipation.
Even if I had friends, they'd just tell me that I'm going to hell for liking ROTF anyway.
SlyTF1, you're a kid after my own spark in alot of ways. You're a bit more in your face than I was at your age, but I like the cut of your gib. This I can't be a nerd and have friends is really negative though. That's SOOOO not true.
I'm 31 and been a massive dork forever. I went with a bunch of people watch Thor just a few weeks ago. I used hang out with my friends as a teen playing video games and magic the gathering all night while drinking entirely too much soda heh. I constructed a bionic arm to dress up as Nathan Rad Spencer from Bionic commando. I've been the Guild leader in a few MMOs, which my former guild mates all think of me as like this heroic figure heh. It's like being the captain of the football team for nerds LOL. I've still managed have friends whom embrace me being dorky as can be, and I've managed see a few different women naked in my life.
Like in Scott Pilgrim(if you've seen the ,movie or read the books to know what I mean.) ...you need unlock your power of self respect Sly. If you don't love yourself...how can you ever expect anyone else to or to care and empathize with about others. I say this as someone who used be a really angry teenager. (I think at the height of my rage I'd made World War hulk seem calm by comparsion.) Don't beat yourself up too much as you got the rest of the world to do for you. Why do the extra work?
Ultimately only thing I regret was letting anger control me and isolate me from others. Life doesn't have to be bad. You're not alone in this world, I mean there's a whole website of people here who share same love for things you do. (probably a few who's collections are crossing into the embaressing ...OMFG how you have that many levels haha.)
I'd hang out with you if I lived closer infact. I know you live in DC, and I live near Chicago, but there's people out there you just haven't met yet who you can share this all with. If there's comic conventions or clubs in your area..go to them.
Everything in life is a curse or blessing depending on how you want to use it. Being a geek is same way. Anyone who would tell you that you're going to hell for liking something isn't much of a friend. True friends don't do crap like that. If you start feel better about yourself you will attract better people around. If you wear the victim label then the world will kick you down with it. It's up to you to light your own darkest hour Sly.
I know this all totally off topic (yeah I'm derailing my own thread haha.) but just something that's been bothering me to see. Hang in there Sly. Now returning to your regular schdule programing..(sees a G1 bumper of Jazz transforming then spinning around firing and Victor Caroli saying now returning to transformers.)
