Since we've gotten a lot of new members lately, I thought I'd start this thread for any of our new members, or even our existing members, to introduce themselves to the members of this forum. Let us know a bit about yourself and how you became a Clint fan. We'd also love to know how you found this site. Basically, tell us anything you'd like us to know about you! We also have a "Clint Eastwood Web Board Member Map" where you can add your location and see where some of the other Clint Eastwood fans who are board members here live. You can check that map out HERE.

We'll be merging all threads where members introduce themselves into this one, so keep checking back here to see who our newest members are.

Welcome to all our newest members. We hope you like it here. :)

     John Baldwin from Paris, France;
     The Italian Gun from Italy;
     alzbet from St. Petersburg, Russia; and
     El Pistolero from Rochester, NY, USA


I tried to merge some of your introduction posts into this thread, but it wound up going out of order and was a bit confusing. So thought I'd bring your names up again here. We're glad you're with us.  :)

I'm Gino M.  I was a poster a while back but circumstances beyond my control lead to my disappearance for a while. But if anyone really wants to know, let's just say that my job took me away for a while. :D

It's good to be back!!!  Hope to post more often.

Hi everybody, my nickname is [email protected] and I am from Uruguay. My main language is spanish and my name is Alejandro (Alexander in English)

I am a musician from Montevideo (capital City) guitar player, part time pro, and I own a computer store and cybergame.
I am a Beatles and Elvis Fan too
I am part of 12 years old rock band with two records in my country and two songs edited in two tribute albums in UK.
The name band is Bel Air, you can get more info in my profile

I pick nickname [email protected], because my first guitar (1970), was a german made, brand Framus

My mother was a huge clint´s fan, so when I was 13 years old I became fan too with "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly" or "El bueno, el malo y el feo" in spanish

I saw twice the first day. Later I bought it in VHS and now I have it in DVD
I must say I saw it more than 15 times. I saw all of his movies, but no more than 3 or 4 times each
It is the Western Nirvana for me, i enjoy like the first time every time I saw Tuco, Angel Eyes and Blondi
Is the best movie I have seen, always in my first rank

I was looking some Eastwood info and I found this board, and since that I love it!

I would like to thank Matt and mgk for their friendship and warm.

See you around, and "Imagine all the people
living life in peace"

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

Hi guys

My name is Johan (pronounced youhun) and I just joined the board. Obviously I'm a Clint fan and I have been visiting this site since 1998. I finally decided that it was time to join.
I live in Cape Town, South Africa.
I must say that I am really getting tired of Charlize Theron. She is in the country at the moment and she is all over the place. In the papers, on tv, on all our radio stations etc etc.
Don't get me wrong, I am very proud of her, but enough is enough. Let her be. I wish Clint would visit South Africa. He's not really that big here, although Mystic River did pretty well here.
Anyway, it's now 16h40 here and time to go home. Cheers.

Hey Johan, I'm new as well.  I'm from Canada.   The thing I hate about Charlize Theron, is why'd she change her accent?  Why is it that every actor that goes to the US from other countries feels they must sound American?  (BTW This is not a knock on Americans, I love the States)Even our actors like Shatner, Donald Sutherland, J Carrey, Mike Myers and Leslie Nielson have all blunted the Canadian sounding words in their accent.   Christopher Plummer is probably the only one of our actors that hasn't.

Oh yeah, and I forgot to add - Clint Eastwood is my all time hero!  My favourite movie of all time is Unforgiven and GBU is also one of my favourite films.

Yes, Sir, we do

Matt
how you became a Clint fan  
Easy, Sir
as a child  ;D I was always very keen on prairies (huh? wright spelling?), cowboys, riding, shooting, cool grinning, trigger pulling and so on. And one day I found out there is not just a horseman in stetson, but  also a very handsome one.
now I`m 23 and still stupid enough  ;D

Hey guys, I've been around for a few months, occassionally posting questions that have been previously discussed, but mostly lurking. Unfortunately I'm not from an exotic place, just cold, dark Pennsylvania USA.

I became a fan watching butchered network versions of the Dirty Harry films as a kid in the 70's and decided to check out other Eastwood films and discovered I loved most of what Clint did.

Great board, I've learned a lot here.

How did I become a Clint fan? The first movie I ever remember seeing was Dirty Harry. It just sort of stuck in my head. I must have been 5. I also remember seeing Play Misty For Me at a young age.
Plus Clint made such an impression on me as a young boy. He was so cool and calm, always had the right thing to say, plus at that age I enjoyed the action and western movies. As I grew older I began to appreciate his movies on a different level. Not just for the action, but that they were different type of movies, the anti hero, the guy that shoots people in the back etc.
I am loved the monkey movies, I thought they were hilarious. I remember watching them as a kid, we canned ourselves, especially the scenes with the black widows.
I don't agree with Clint's moral values but as a filmmaker and a professional I respect him a lot. The fact that he makes movies with small budgets, finishes them ahead of schedule and still make quality productions, I respect that.
