Title: Bon Voyage
Post by: Duck Sauce on March 25, 2004, 06:37:09 PM
Things have changed; I’ve drifted from interests and its time for me to move on. For all those who are new and don’t remember me or for those who simply don’t care, you might click the “X” box in the upper right hand corner now (or red button for you hippies with Macs)  I wont be too sentimental, but Id just like to thank most of you for the good times I had here. I joined C&C on July 4, 2002, and although I faced a lot of resistance I loved the experience and learned a lot about film and saw a ton of movies I loved that I would have never seen without the C&C board. I was disappointed when it shut down, but luckily this board was started. This is one of the best, most closely-knit message boards I’ve ever seen, but I am burnt out and not as interested in film as I used to be, so like many relationships its time for this one to come to an end. It’s just not the same anymore.

Nothing personal, I’m just not passionate about this anymore and have other shit to do. So thanks everybody, take care and good luck with your futures and hope I can see some of your movies someday (with references to Xixax in them). I’ve created one of those personal goodbye lists and if you aren’t on it, it’s probably because I didn’t like you. So Duck Sauce will ride off into the sunset and I’m sure you all will pick apart this message and make fun of it, but of course its Xixax and it shouldn’t be any other way.


Xixax – Thanks for setting up this place and for not getting involved in all the fights.

MacGuffin – When I think Xixax, I think MacGuffin. If you are human, thanks for all the redirects, links and information you posted.

Film Student – Not really a member here, and not that I ever really communicated with you but when I showed up at the C&C Boards I saw you, Mogwai, Regular Karate, Sphinx, MacGuffin and Pubrick as the main parts of the board.

Regular Karate – See above.

Mogwai – See Regular Karate

Sphinx – Site finally died to me when you left, just didn’t seem like the same bunch that I grew to love after you left.

Pubrick – Never did like you, but sometimes you were on.

Ajclockworkjj – Thanks for being genuine and interesting.

Jeremy Blackman – I most enjoyed our political arguments even though you are a fucking communist. Hopefully over time you will mellow out a bit, but I respect your views and ability to argue them very much (just keep the censorship down). Xixax’s resident right winger is moving out.

Cecil B. Demented – Get out more.

The Golden Trumpet – I liked it best when you were just pure movie reviews.

Budgie – Added the perfect mystery to the site.

Newtron – Often wondered if you were Pubrick, or related to Pubrick because you also seemed to pick on me. Looking back, some of them were very funny.

Cbrad – Got into a fight with you over technicalities in my review of About Schmidt. I like you though.

Greg – Thanks for starting C&C, and exposing me to film.

Ebeaman – Sorry I picked on you. You are good people. Please accept my apologies as I grew to really like you.

Godardian – You are the most passionate mother fucker about ever topic discussed. But that’s a good thing.

SoNowThen – Fight the fight. I respected your opinion and you were a good guy.

Sexterrosa – I know you know. Take care.



Goodbye,


Duck Sauce

I am PTA

This is sad. I hate when regulars leave...

It's a nice thing though...writing a goodbye-letter instead of just not logging on again...

I feel the opposite, and no, I'm not mad that I wasn't mentioned (somebody put a cap of the Naomi Watts look of bitter jealousy here)

This is very mysterious. It's like a superhero dying. With all the mysterious things left behind. Post count of 1999. Location History, not to mention the PS.

Duck,


Cheers, mate. Stop by from time to time and check in on us, at the least.

Much luck in all future endeavors. You were the only poster I could count on to bring reason to the President thread. I'll miss you.

Duck, even though you seem to think I'm not a member, I think you were a very large part of this site.  Sad to see you go, man.

SoNowThen is on his own with his crazy nazi views.

i got three shout outs.  :yabbse-smiley:

even tho u were a jerk to begin with, u stuck around and developed one of the most consistent genuine characters (PMs notwithstanding). i'm sure if newtron, sphinx, and cecil were around they'd agree.

farewell, and good money.

What's with the PS on DuckSauce's letter? Joke? That'd be a cruel joke...

Aw man, cronopio, not you, too. You were one of the first chums to actually take notice of me.

It's a sign, Chest.

Anyway, I'm going to throw my name into the hat and also say goodbye. It's almost been a year since I've been here and I think I need to relax. Thanks for everything guys. I love you all. Well, most of you. Um. At least half. Well, if not half, a good minority of you. Okay, I promised myself I wouldn't cry. Remember MEEEEEEEEEEEE *falls off of Cliff**

I'm not leaving but I wanted to jump on the bangwagon sooner than later.

* and by Cliff, I mean the guy from Cheers. Not the actual cliff cliff. Ratzenberger's a tease.

Godardian – You are the most passionate mother fucker about every topic discussed. But that’s a good thing.




...a high and highly unexpected compliment. To which I'll respond: Passion arises from being provoked and challenged out of your complacency, and you were definitely always there to do the challenging and provocation. No Duck Sauce could very well have equaled less inspiration (of a sort). Good luck to you.

I like how when these threads pop up, I'm mentioned but its in the way of the person trying not to completely dislike me but find one good thing about me and says it what they about liked me. or you can be sphinx and admit you never liked me. he was a good guy. peace duck sauce. i liked your goofy name. i know you posted a lot, but i don't remember much of it after C&C. You seemed to have drifted into anomynity (sp?), well, at least to me. Weird how things stay crystal clear for me on what happened at C&C.

But, you're right, my disfunctioning personality is best just reviewing films.

I championed GT and Godardian before it was the cool thing to do 8)

Best thing to ever happen to me here. I remember when Godardian first showed up and replied to almost every thread, I too was singing some praises. Lets turn this thread into a menage a trois and piss some people off.

I didn't really have much of a connection with you Duck Sauce.  Even though you won't be reading this.

Hopefully you are weak willed and will return.  Maybe with a new account.

I hate to see people leave, but I hate more when people leave film.  Not to say what you did was wrong, but it's sad to see.  

An angel is losing its wings as we speak.
