Hey guys Its so crazy how the years fly by!
I am already 18, and it seems just like yesterday I joined Fxhome and all of you. I am now an adult which means great responsibiliy, like buying dry Ice, and voting,buying things on TV. lol
I just want to say to all the younger film makers out there enjoy the time you have now as a kid, because it comes alot sooner than you ever would except.
Oh and a side note, Next year when I turn 19 I will be leaving FXHOME for 2 entire YEARS! on a mission for The Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. So I will miss all of you very much, but until then I will try to make the very best movies this year, And Hopefully suprize all of you.
Also About my mission I will tell all of you where I will be serving, I hope I get called to Japan.

SO Lets Party! Bring Presents(which i loved from last year,lol)! favorite Videos! FUNNY Pictures! ANYTHING FUN TO SHARE, or even memories of somthing stupid i have done.lol
Have FUN~! smile
Oh and I will finishing our FXtest 3 and Stunt video very soon.
wink
Where did the years GO?! eh

Buy a pack of cigarettes and smoke them all in one sitting. After that get another pack and go to the strip club. Be sure to smoke your entire 2nd pack there while gratuitously throwing money at a stripper named Candi. Buy another pack of cigs, go to the bank and take out a checking account while smoking the entire 3rd pack in the bank while you fill out paper work.

This year, everyone's happy for you, but last year, there were haters!

Happy birthday, ssj.

Maybe if you go to Japan, you can meet these guys:
DELETED CUZ THE BIRTHDAY BOY SAID SO. AND I RESPECT THAT.
or, you oculd go to Hollywood, and adapt an epic into a movie that'll win more Oscars than any movie before it. Just make sure you get the beard thing going on.

or, if you're not going for any of that stuff, you could always gaze at this picture of a dog with a flower around its head.

That first picture is the most disturbing picture I've seen in my life! IN MY LIFE! Just look at their faces and -AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! OH MY GOD! I NEED one of those costumes and go to school with it on. There's a fun day.

EDIT: NOO! My little Japanese friends are gone?!?!? Ahh, good thing I downloaded that picture before it was taken down. Wow, I'm such a loser. I need a life.

Happy Birthday ssjaaron, hopefully being eighteen is everything you imagined it would be. Is a plus one still an acceptable gift to receive from an individual who has no means of getting you anything else, and doesn't know you that closely? In any case, that is my present to you.

Sorry to hear you will be leaving. I am sure you will be missed as well, and there will perhaps be a small void on FXhome until you return. I am not a church going patron, but committing to an entire two years of being away from home, for something you believe in, is an admirable act, and quite the decision that many eighteen year-olds would not make. That is very commendable.

I hope you have enjoyed your big day, and I look forward to seeing what you make before you take your leave.

Happy Birthday.
Wizard.

Thanks Wizard! I am glad you read that. It is a huge sacrifice, esspecially for 2 years of no film and no collage, but I becuase of my personal beliefs and the beliefs of my church, I feel I have been blessed very much through my church so I am returning the favor.
My 2 older brother are a great example of serving missions, one is Ireland and one is in Argentina, and the oldest one will be gettng back very soon, I am very excited. Because after all family is the most imporatant thing in this world, and not seeing my bros for 2 years is very sad, but exciting as well knowing he is doing the right thing.
so thank you Wizard for you respect and your comment. Life is comming very fast and so I hope I can make this year, the best year here at Fxhome. wink
oh and thanks for the +1's guys smile

That's really cool that you're gonna do a mission, man. This may soudn stupid, but are the Latter Day Saints the same as Mormons? Or close to them, at least? I'm Methodist, so I don't really know.

From what i understand, latter day saints, jehovahs witnesses and mormons are the same thing. I'm a protestant christian myself (quite abit different than those)

My form of Methodism (which is really just following the Bible, plain and simple) is similar to both Presbytarianism, Protestant, and Episcopal religions. Others like Baptist (oh, god, they're really bad here in the south) interpret some texts to mean certain things rather than just doing what the text says.

Wait. So the cool Mormon guys on bicycles who wear Matrix coats and sunglasses (even at night, this is true) in my neighborhood are just Jehovah's witnesses? What a rip, I thought they were legit. (No offense to any J.W's here, it's just that most of them are stereotypically scam artists/con men)

Now, let me warn you I am only trying to help not hurt. After being a member for a few months now I have noticed your spelling is atrocious. So, I give you this:





Im only looking out for you because no longer are you in the protective walls of school, but you are now entering the real world. Practice your diction before getting a job. I hope you don't see me as a jerk!

Happy Birthday man! Here in Canada in Quebec we could go some gambling and drinking to celebrate with the crazy french Canadians. Two years for something you believe in.. that is damn cool. I have a friend who is doing something very similar but in Australia. Don't forget to keep your movie making up though. I've checked out all your films of your site.. big fan of them. Won't be long actually until im 19 (dec 10th).. can't wait! Legal drinking age.. not that it ever mattered.

Happy Birthday.

Many happy returns of the day. As I saw earlier, you are a mormon. As a Catholic I always ignore it when your people call. But here's one tidbit a missionary friend told me.

In Mexico my friend was a bus driver on a Baptist missionary trip. One day while he was driving, he was having trouble seeing. The sky seemed unbelievably overcast. Children where materializing out of nowhere. He sat hunched over the wheel, desprately trying not to crash. Once he got to the end he sighed in relief, reached to his forehead-and touched his sunglasses!

By the way my birthday was the 13. Have fun!
