It is with great pleasure and respect to introduce the OT'er of the week, DWF! :cool:

Quote

The Rules:
Here are the rules which should typically be appended to the new thread:

1. The current OTer of the Week chooses the next OTer of the week and starts a thread in their honor.
2. That person's week in the spotlight runs from Monday to Sunday, after which a new OTotW takes over.
3. To keep this interesting please choose someone with whom you typically disagree here on OT, and also someone you don't know well. We'd hate to see it get clubby.
4. Current OTotW should set about picking a successor within a few days in case the search for a new OTotW takes awhile. And also so that person can prepare and write a brief bio like this week's OTer of the week did below.
5. Have fun, and LEARN about each other.

I;ve lived all my life in Columbus, Ohio I've been a fan of science fiction and Track And Field all my life. I am a Catholic and my polictical views are more or less an issue by issue basis.

I'm a fan of Dr. Who, Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Smallville, Space:1999, Lexx, Indiana Jones, Blake's 7, Babylon 5, Andromeda among others.

I'm an experience Marcon panelist thanks to Neroonb and I've done panels with Steve Bacic and Marc Singer, I've been doing that for almost a decade.

I'll start with the first questions:

What is your idea of a "dream job"?

Which did you enjoy watching more of; Babylon 5 or NuBSG?

Do you think it was just coincidence that we got B5 and DS9 pretty much at the same time, or did the concept get leaked out and someone copied the other?

What are your top 5 sci-fi/fantasy series?  Same questions for movies.

For those who may not know, what does "DWF" stand for?

One where I can have a descent vacation.

Babylon 5 it was a far more satifising show than the new Battlestar Galactica.

It was just a coinsidence in my mind. I'm kind of looking forward to seeing them both again to see how they've held up over time to me.

Quote

Top five series

Doctor Who
Star Trek(all of them)
Stargate SG1
Space:1999
Blake's 7
(Currently that is. ;) )

Top five movies in no special order

Star Wars Ep. VI
Star Wars Ep. V
Robocop
2001 A Space Odyssey
Star Trek II
(Again currently)

Doctor Who Fan :tardis:
The longest-running science fiction series: decadent, degenerate and rotten to the core. Power-mad conspirators, Daleks, Sontarans... Cybermen! They're still in the nursery compared to us. Fifty years of absolute fandom. That's what it takes to be really critical.

Hey DWF :D Thanks for being OTer of the week.

What do you think of Columbus, Ohio? Have you done any travelling/ ever wanted to?

How would you compare your online personality to your offline self?

Do you read much, if so, what do you like?

Thanks :)

The fourth Doctor, Tom Baker's Doctor he was a rogue, scientist, rebel, he combined the best of the previous three Doctors and like the others he noticed all the little things that nobody else sees and he always fought for the underdog. Plus I really like the look and feel of his first three seasons especially, the Hinchecliffe/Baker/Holmes was a golden one to my mind.

I was a sprinter back in high school, but I got away from the sport and running in general for a while, I do have arthitis and that makes it hard to do any really running and even sometimes walking. But I did run the 100 though the 800 meters, my times weren't very good thoguh.

Columbus is a place of extremes, but all in all it's home and right now I can't think of living anywhere else. I have done a little travelling Canada, Texas and Tenn. we also been to Detroit and Indiana.

I went to Father Wehrle High School and we were a part of the Central Catholic League, we won the State Track Meet twice while I was there once in 1981 and again 1983 and we were the runner up in '82.

Who Are You Lyrics
Artist(Band):The Who


Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?

I woke up in a Soho doorway
A policeman knew my name
He said "You can go sleep at home tonight
If you can get up and walk away"

I staggered back to the underground
And the breeze blew back my hair
I remember throwin' punches around
And preachin' from my chair

Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Tell me, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
'Cause I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

I took the tube back out of town
Back to the Rollin' Pin
I felt a little like a dying clown
With a streak of Rin Tin Tin

I stretched back and I hiccoughed
And looked back on my busy day
Eleven hours in the Tin Pan
God, there's got to be another way

Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh, who are you(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh Tell me, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh Who the f**k are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

Who are you?
who are who are who are you x11

Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?
Who are you?
Who, who, who, who?

I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
C'mon tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh, I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

I know there's a place you walked
Where love falls from the trees
My heart is like a broken cup
I only feel right on my knees

I spit out like a sewer hole
Yet still recieve your kiss
How can I measure up to anyone now
After such a love as this?

Well who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
oh, I really wanna know? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
tell, tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

C'mon, c'mon who? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh, Who the f*ck are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
Oh, tell me who are you (Who are you?, ooo?)

I really wanna to know
Oh, I really want to know
C'mon tell me who are you, you, you?
Who are you?
