Hello!

I joined back in early 2002 sometime. My old I.D. was "SarumanRules"! I dont know if many people remember me. I remember Juan of course...Jacob...Joakim...not many others. Looks like a few things have changed around here!

I was living and working in New Zealand for several years. From late 2005-early 2007. I moved back Stateside after news of my father passing away, and have been here since April 2007 in central Florida.

I will be moving BACK to New Zealand in February or March '09 with my new wife! (been married 7 months now)... =)

Anyway...glad to be back!

I even took a photo OF the photo that Juan so graciously got for me back in 2002. This had been in storage for nearly 3 years!

Hi,
I was not here for your first membership, but have just had a minor celebration of being here over a year now, and I look forward to reading your future posts. Love the photo. Love the photo.
Welcome back.
Steve.

Thank you! I wanted to post it, and maybe jog Juan's memory! If I remember what happened correctly, I had purchased a Saruman photo online from a well known autograph dealer in Los Angeles. When Juan saw it, he immediately told me "there is no way Mr. Lee signed that;" even though it looked very authentic. Juan offered to get a new one for me for a minor fee (I think it was 30 or 40 pounds), and I must've waited 8 or 9 weeks---and boom--it soom arrived in the mail via the Queen's post. It's been a prized possesion ever since! It's a conversation piece when people see it in my home.

Hi there and welcome back to the site! I seem to remember your old user name from your time here before.

Yeah I remember quite a few names. Matt Gemmell was one I recognized last night. I BELIEVE I joined around April 2002...right around the time Attack of the Clones had come out. I remember I had the "premium" membership...where Juan sent out all the card and a membership #. They were little white laminated cards with a photo of Mr. Lee in a blue suit. Any of this ringing a bell to anyone?

Absolutely. My members card still sits with pride of place in my wallet now.

HAHA! Genius! I will have to dig mine out. I believe I had two of them at one time.

Well for a year or two, I would still browse the forum under SarumanRules. But i forgot my password after a time. SO...then I couldn't get the password back because I was no longer using the email account attached with the user ID. That mustve been sometime in 2004 or 2005? Then I ended up moving to New Zealand, and didnt surf the web much at all the entire time I lived there. Just the other night I re-watched the Return of the King and the death of Saruman reminded me to check this website out again and try to rejoin! I'm glad I did. I'm glad it's still here and that some of the oldies are still here!

Re: Greetings--return of an old member!

A very warm welcome back to CLW, Brandon! I first joined CLW in early 2004, but I didn't post anything for a long while (for several reasons). I believe I did see the screen name "SarumanRules" posting on the different threads in my early days as a member (my own screen name was "PoeRaven"). In any event, it's wonderful to see more people in amongst the forums, whether they be new faces or old familiar ones. I hope that you will continue to enjoy your time here, and I look forward to reading more of your posts in the future. A final word before I finish: I really LOVE the signed photo of Mr Lee as Saruman. Excellent memento! Take care and all the best:

Warmest regards,

Andrés

Re: Greetings--return of an old member!

I joined this past July... I like posting and keeping the threads moving along... No offense, but Mr. Lee's website does kinda' move slow to a degree... I like quick / even exchanges, etc....

MR.BILL

P.S.

You all can locate me at Boxing News and Views just about on a daily basis... Boxing is my favorite sport, and that particular site really moves along.... Eastsideboxing..... Cheers...

Haha...yeah I remember from 2002-late 2003 this place was "hoppin" a little more. I guess because of Star Wars and LOTR.

Bill,

How come we don't have a "DISCUSSION" forum? I think we had one back in the old days. You know, a forum where we could just talk about random stuff? I suppose that opens people up to arguments, but I think we're all civil enough to abide by some posting rules and not get personal.

I've been here quite a while and I don't ever remember an off topic forum.
Whilst it may be a good idea I think you'll find that these kind of forums tend to degenerate quite quickly. There are plenty of other websites for off topic chat without clogging up the CLW. Here are a couple of my favourite sites.

Oh I very well could have been wrong. I don't recall exactly...I mean, it was about 5 years ago that I was posting on a regular basis.

It's nice to be able to have a little camaraderie with fellow fans about OTHER stuff too.
