My name is James, I'm 16 and I'm from Melbourne, AUSTRALIA!
My IRC nickname is Ozzy (occasionally I'm Ozzyjalo94, because I sometimes get an "Ozzy nickname is in use" message when I try to log into IRC. Damned impostors...) and my Forum username is ozzyjalo94.
I've seen Avatar 14 times and I have the Activist Survival Guide and Extended Collector's Edition DVD. Avatar is the best thing to happen in the world since the Bombers won the 2000 AFL Grand Final. Well... maybe not the best thing in the world since the Bomber's season from heaven. Not even close actually, but hey, it's pretty good (or else I guess I wouldn't be here). But not as good as the Bomber's outstanding 2000 AFL Season. 24-1. What a year. I was only 6 years old, but I remember it like it was yesterday (sorry, I tend to talk a fair bit about Aussie Rules Football).
James Hird is a legend (see picture at the top of this section) (there I go again, sorry).
My history with Wikis: I had followed several Wikis for a few years (mostly gaming stuff: Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Halo, etc. plus a fair bit of Wikipedia), but had never made an account or edited in any way. After seeing Avatar three times in a month (late December 2009 - early January 2010) I checked to see if there was an Avatar Wiki, and sure enough, there it was... except, I had found the Avatar: The Last Airbender Wiki, which threw me right off (I'd never heard of The Last Airbender). Eventually I found the James Cameron's Avatar Wiki, and decided, after reading a few articles and blogs, to finally make a Wikia account.
Well, about Avatar... December 2009: I'd seen the first part of an ad for Avatar on TV, but I wasn't sure what it was or who had directed it, as I missed the end of the ad. From what I saw, it looked like a stupid animated kids movie. But I went up the street to the cinema with my family (who had probably seen the whole ad, but forgot/neglected to tell me anything about the movie - I was very bored that day, so I tagged along), bought the tickets and the 3D glasses, entered the theatre and sat down...
Avatar is now my favourite science fiction film, though that isn't exactly a big achievement because I usually find science fiction in cinema to be... well, not as good as other genres (the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy kinda ruined the genre for me). The thing is that Avatar is also one of my all-time favourite films, for many reasons. It is spectacular in its visuals, audio and storytelling, and makes a lasting impression on the viewer's mind.
