This is a real bi-coastal brain teaser for me, trying to distinguish whom I've met who is (or who once was) an FSM Message Board Member versus who never was one.

Ray Faiola a couple of times screening flicks at his home ........March of the Wooden Soldiers (a number of years ago at his midtown NYC loft) ........Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (just recently at his Ellenville, NY, Chelsea Rialto Studios) (Woo! Woo!)
I forgot to mention meeting Thierry Schreurs back in the day, at the Jerry Goldsmith concert in Nottingham. And Les Jepson and Big Jim T Wilson, when they visit the Pool. And just yesterday, we (Roy Donga, CineFart) met up with Paul MacLean again in Liverpool, while he's on one of his UK tours. It's always fun times.
Have met Thor (in Oslo, in 2001, before a jaunt to Lillehammer) and Lukas, who I met around March 1997 while working with a West Hollywood-based starter film music representation agency just after it had been acquired by a big recording conglomerate (Lukas may have been brought in by the company as some some sort of film music consultant). Cool job, just listened to prospective client demos all day, three to four days a week, making recommendations to the head agent about potential clients to meet with/represent.
Great memories from what (now) seems like another person's life.
