I went to my profile for the first time in forever, and realized next week is my 11th anniversary since I joined the site.

I honestly can't think of any other site that I continue to visit on a regular basis for 11 straight years. And fuck, lots of you who have been here the same or longer, and many boys who became men in the past 11 years.

Good stuff. I'm glad I found Xixax back then and that it continues to be one of the most interesting places to read about and discuss films, television and more.

 :bravo:

Hi I'm Zach.  I thought I should introduce myself and say hello.  Hello.  I like (love) film.  PTA is my favorite filmmaker.  I also like browsing message boards all day long checking for nonexistent updates (*Inherent Vice*) and discussing opinions and other things.  This seems like a pretty cool community of smart people that like things I like.  Looking forward to it!

Your name is the sound I made when the guy piercing my tongue asked "wheres the best place to talk about PTA on the web?"


Welcome, dude. You seem cool. From Hong Kong or somethin?

Thanks! And yes, I lived there for two years when I was younger (I'm 17 now, probably pretty young compared to most people on this board).  One of my favorite places, hoping to visit later this year.  See old friends and things.  Such a cool city.

Hi there, I'm not so active at the moment but hi. I think before now I was the youngest member here. You should stick around.

I've been lurking here for a while and I guess it's rude not to introduce myself now that I'm just coming out of the shadows. I found this place a long time ago when tumbling down a PTA rabbit hole (back then the filmmaking forum was still called 'in the can' I think) then somehow I lost it for years - probably because I forgot the name but knew there were lots of X's in it and that I couldn't pronounce it. I'm happy to say I've found this place again and look forward to mixing with like-minded folks who know their shit.

I'm a writer/director based in Scotland - so far I've made short films, but I have written/am writing feature scripts.

I'm a huge fan of PTA. There Will Be Blood and The Master are permanent staples in my otherwise ever-changing top 10.

This seems like a great community and I'm happy to be involved. Thanks.

Welcome! It's good to have you here!

Feel free to share your short films, by the way.

Great, thanks.

I'm in the process of getting some of my work up online after holding onto it for festivals etc for what seems like forever. I've got a couple of smaller bits and pieces I can put up sooner and will do that once I'm through with the day job tonight.

Good to know there's someone else here from Scotland too. Seems to be a good spread of people.
