Well a little over 2 years ago when I joined up I never actually introduced myself. So I figured what better way to join the 3000 post club then to stop and introduce myself. Plus I'm sure a few of you would enjoy the opportunity to roast me a little.

I started helping the sound guy at my church when I was in about 5th grade. From there it was running sound in middle school, and "stage crew" class in High School. I went to college and found a crusty old T.D. who knew everything and the rest is a long boring story.

Today I teach "Intro to Tech theater", I build sets and design lights for the theater department, and I'm "Interim theater manager" which means I'll be supervising the scheduling and technical needs for building rentals. The interim is in there because the money runs out June 30th and then we have to figure out a more permanent way to fund this position... that's how it works in an educational bureaucracy. I also spend a lot of time at home with my two boys, who as you have already seen, are growing up as hard core theater rats.

And finally unmasking the enigma that is Gaff, My name's Mark.

Don't forget to use the search feature, you might find some interesting information that you forgot you posted 3000 posts ago.

Derek, Google is a good thing:

I honestly spent an hour tracking down the mysterious gafftaper about 2 months ago.
I got to the theatre department website before the trail went cold.

And some call ME an internet stalker!
Just be glad that I don't know where you live.
My posse and I might be coming to Las Vegas later this year.!

Update: I do now

My friends: Smith, Wesson, Sig Sauer, and I will be happy to meet you. And don't mind Heinrich, the Doberman--he's gentle.

Dogs love me, and one of my associates is always armed.
The others are harmless, yet extremely odd at times.

He isn't a very good stalker. He contacted me when the trail grew cold for a few clues.

I don't have a website and the college's website is rather boring.

Search feature... I'll have to try that. Who knows what sort of interesting things I may have posted.

It's alright... Had I wanted to find out where you lived, I would have done so long ago... Oh wait... just did it:twisted:

A special search is available for those suffering memory loss. One simply activates the drop down menu by clicking one's username at the top of a post and selects find all posts by user or whatever it is called. OR go to advanced search and search by topic and username, for when you can't be bothered looking through 3000 posts of your own "words of wisdom".

And the stay at home dad classification explains the amount of time available to post *useful* information.

I would say welcome, but I'm in two minds as to whether you may have already worn out your welcome:twisted::mrgreen::twisted::mrgreen:

yeah that's the point, stayed in one place to long

like "over staying your welcome"
Mark has certainly been here too long for his own good, but he hasn't overstayed his welcome

Welcome aboard Mark, and all that usual stuff. You've gotta watch out what threads you look in to when searching around here. You might find one bloated with discussions of pirates and ninjas. And this guy named gafftaper, and his weird recipies. He's a dangerous fellow, and likes to eat small austrailian animals cooked over an open fire.

i think this thread should be re named "Gaff bashing"
That's about what I expected (and probably deserve) so, this thread is my gift to you Hughesie. Use it well, for I am a vengeful gafftaper.

Moo-Ha-Ha-Ha (doesn't work so well in print does it?)

Maybe [-]the evil overlord[/-] Gaff had mean this thread as a form of sacrificial post. Get all the bashing out in this thread and in doing so reduce it's prevalence in other threads. I'm sure it's a nice ideal to hold onto. I think we've all established that us lot never seem to conform to, well anything.

And Alex, Did I not make a statement very similar to your "I just thought of it" one half a dozen posts earlier?
