My name is Eric ( That’s my REAL name, not some made up one for online use)
I figured I better explain a few things about who and what I be before you run screaming from your ‘puters and hide under your beds.
I don’t fit into the usual molds that most people like to put others in. I have a brain that I grow hair out of.
Which I have this really bad habit or either using or NOT using on occasion.
I do TRY to use it mostly and that’s where I get into trouble.
See, I tend to be pretty smart ( as well as arrogant, conceited, overbearing, opinionated, sarcastic ect. ) MOST of the time.
However I have been also known to be dumber that a football bat.
However I digress...
What I am saying is that I form my own opinions on things.
I have my own thoughts on topics and my own beliefs that I hold very dear to my heart.
This leads to many misunderstandings when I run up against those whom I call ‘ The Herd Mind ‘ ( think about that for a sec...) to which some or most of you are familiar with.
These are the people who are blinded ( for whatever reason ) in that they believe everything someone tells them, follow whatever others are doing and think the same way that the rest of people think.
I prefer to make up my own mind on things rather than have someone else ‘influence’ me or tell me what to believe and think.
Which, as I mentioned, gets me into lots of ‘misunderstandings’ and sometimes downright verbal / written battles.
For this I will ask forgiveness and patience now so that everyone knows that I am not taking anything personally, ( nor should you )
As to who & what I am...
Well as I said I am not like most of the males in the world.
Intellectually I can be very stimulating,
I care more about feelings than fact / fiction.
What I mean is that having been through some VERY rough times in my 50ish years I have come to realize that ‘ Things ‘ don’t mean anything, but the people whom I care for ( and for some reason care for me ... ) are the ONLY thing that is important in life.
However the inverse to this is that I can be fooled real easily by folks who pretend something and are actually someone different.
I also have a bad habit of caring way too deeply about some things ( as well as some PEOPLE ) this means that I when and how I get hurt affects me deeply.
Nevertheless, it does allow me better insight into understanding how and why people feel the way they do. ( along with a whole lot of experience in the sadder sides of life ) which means in a nut shell that I can relate more easily and comprehend things that the average person either doesn’t want to understand or simply can’t get inside.
Lastly I have a great belief in God.
Yet I also am not blinded by this belief as many are.
I can talk with someone and share things with them that many people wouldn’t even consider because of their stringent adherence to ‘ the way things are ‘ .
Which simply means that I believe from the inside, not just repeat words, or impose what I think on others.
In overly simplified terms I accept that other people believe something different, and would hope that by showing my acceptance , even without agreeing with them, that they / you will be able to accept me and show the same courtesy in return.
There you have it.
Just me in a nut(house)shell.
There are many more facets that I could go into and would be happy to with anyone whom is my friend.
However those are more of something that are specific to each of us, and while I have no problem talking in a public forum it is sometimes best and more personal to exchange e-mail together on some things or even take a chance and just sit down across from one another and see the person for who they are and talk.
For those of you who already KNOW this stuff about me, well what can I say but...

Labyrinth is a 1986 British-American musical dark fantasy adventure film directed by Jim Henson, executive-produced by George Lucas, and based upon conceptual designs by Brian Froud. The film revolves around 15-year-old Sarah's (Jennifer Connelly) quest to reach the center of an enormous otherworldly maze to rescue her infant brother Toby, whom Sarah wished away to Jareth, the Goblin King (David Bowie). With the exception of Connelly and Bowie, most of the film's significant characters are played by puppets produced by Jim Henson's Creature Shop.
The film started as a collaboration between Henson and Froud, with ideas for the film first being discussed between them following a screening of their previous collaboration, The Dark Crystal. Terry Jones of Monty Python wrote the first draft of the film's script early in 1984, drawing on Froud's sketches for inspiration. Various other scriptwriters, including Laura Phillips (who had previously written several episodes of Fraggle Rock), Lucas, Dennis Lee, and Elaine May, subsequently rewrote and made additions to the screenplay, although Jones received the film's sole screenwriting credit. Labyrinth was shot on location in Upper Nyack, Piermont and Haverstraw in New York, and at Elstree Studios and West Wycombe Park in the United Kingdom.
The New York Times reported that Labyrinth had a budget of $25 million. The film was a box office disappointment, grossing $12.9 million during its U.S. theatrical run. The commercial failure demoralized Henson to the extent that his son Brian remembered the time of the film's release as one of the most difficult periods of his father's career. It would be the last feature film directed by Henson before his death in 1990.
Although it was met with a mixed critical response upon its initial release, Labyrinth has since gained a large cult following. A four-volume comic sequel to the film, Return to Labyrinth, was published by Tokyopop between 2006 and 2010. In 2012, Archaia Studios Press announced they were developing a graphic novel prequel to the film. In January 2016, it was announced that a reboot was in development, which was later denied by screenwriter Nicole Perlman, describing it instead as a "spin-off" in the same fictional universe. 
The Crow trailer ~ www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIlVZv…
The Crow is a 1994 American dark fantasy action film directed by Alex Proyas, written by David J. Schow and John Shirley. The film stars Brandon Lee in his final film appearance. The film is based on James O'Barr's 1989 comic book The Crow, and tells the story of Eric Draven (Lee), a rock musician who is revived from the dead to avenge his own death as well as the rape and murder of his fiancée.
The lead actor, Brandon Lee, was accidentally mortally wounded on the set during filming by a defective blank, only eight days before the film would have completed production. Unfinished scenes that were to feature him were dealt with a re-written format in the script, a stunt double and digital special effects. The film is dedicated to Lee and his fiancée, Eliza.
Despite the several production setbacks due to Lee's death, The Crow was well-received critically for its unique visual style, premise, emotional depth and its tribute to the deceased actor. The film opened at the top of the box office and attained a strong cult following.
