anonymous asked:

Hello, I love your blog, keep up the good work. When did you become an X-Files fan? Who is your favorite character? What are the moments of the show that stands out for you the most? What is the first image or thought that comes to your mind when you here the words "The X-Files"? Thanks in advanced for your answer:)

When did you become an X-Files fan? I became a fan in the late 90s, shortly before the first movie came out, which was season 5. My friend had the other seasons on tape and she let me borrow them to catch up. FX was a new channel and hosted “100 nights of The X-Files” in preparation for the movie and I taped every episode that aired…I may or may not still have said VHS tapes.

Who is your favorite character? I don’t have a favorite character, per se. I love Mulder and Scully as a team. I love them together in every capacity. Maggie Scully holds a soft spot and I do enjoy all the Scully family pieces we saw…and I loved it when we got some Skinner stand-alones too. “Avatar” is one of my favorites.

What are the moments of the show that stands out for you the most? Moments on the show…hmmmm…. Scully finding out she’s pregnant definitely stands out…Mulder’s bizarre return. The kiss after William was born…All Things… Fight the Future holds a special spot in my heart because it was right when I became a fan and all the promotion for the movie was exciting and fun, and the music and yeah….

What is the first image or thought that comes to your mind when you hear the words “The X-Files”? I think of fandom. I think of my teenage years. I think of the friendships I’ve made in the last year. I think of growing up. It says a lot. A lot a lot a lot.

Loved these. Thanks for asking, anon.

Final Fantasy VIII - Laguna and Raine.

Up till this day and I still wonder how it must feel to be born in the 21st century ? Like… how fascinating is that 😮😮😮 Computers already existed when you were a kid and having cellphones was a normal thing when you were toddlers.I still remember how I’d have to use VHS tapes to watch my favorite Disney classics when I was a kid lolll Now everything is on youtube. This world is fascinating me.IPADS did not exist back then lollllll I feel like a dinosaur but I still miss the time before everyone was stuck on their phones.Now even elementary school kids have a phone and I’m like 😲😲😲😲

My sister irishdance-comeback-kid and I have memorized almost every second of the 1994 Worlds video thanks to growing up with repeated viewings of our trusty VHS tape (which is still functional).

One of our favorite moments is this little guy who shows up in the Boys 9-11 presentation. Thanks to his serious look and outrageously dated glasses, we’ve dubbed him “The 80 Year Old U11″. Now that I’ve got a DVD copy of the 1994 Worlds, we thought it was high time this lil nugget became an internet sensation. Enjoy. (And if this is your teacher or know who this fellow is, you’ll make my life.)

I always watch till the very end for the end screen, and to see what you have to say Mark! I love them. I think they are a great little personal touch to your videos, and I for one am glad you brought them back :D
