Good morning, ATS members.

I am Erek, or Vex, whichever you feel so inclined to address me by. I have been a member of this website for many months (a 'lurker' for longer than that), but I tend to be more of a reader than participant, so I never composed an introduction post for myself. I have started to feel that this was a little rude of me, so I thought that it was time that I rectified the situation.

As i have said, I do not post or comment very often, but I enjoy many of the threads that I read here. Being a Minister (Church of affiliation to remain nameless, thank you) I am especially partial to religious topics, but you will not find me preaching to or chastising others for holding beliefs other than my own. In fact, I rather love learning what beliefs others are passionate about, be they spiritual or otherwise.

On a more personal note, I love music above all things. I am a fan of metal (black, death, doom, thrash...you name it), industrial, classical, opera, and even country (although I prefer older country music rather than most of the new country I have heard). I have my own solo music project, Stygiophilia (industrial black metal), that I have been playing at for many years. I am also a rather big theatre buff, musical or otherwise.

Books are another passion of mine, and I love nothing more than to spend hours upon hours listening to music while I read. My favourite books are by the author, and my friend, Thomas E. Sniegoski. I also highly enjoy the novels of Christopher Moore, Neil Gaiman and Clive Barker (especially his books of plays). I will watch any film involving Guillermo del Toro. As something of a make-up artist myself, I always love to see the make-up work and creature designs in his films.

I am more than a bit of a World of Warcraft 'nerd', as well as a proud Brony. WoW and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic accomplish the difficult task of bringing some semblance of joy to my otherwise tedious world. I also write a web comic, Satan Saves!, that amuses me greatly when nothing else seems to do the trick.

Well, I suppose that I have rambled on enough for now. It is a pleasure to finally greet you all properly, and I look forward to my occasional interactions with all of you.

~Erek "Vex" Vaehne

May your time be long and your interest wide. Erm..wait...you are a Preacher but like Black Metal? I guess the Aliens Priest can't hold a candle to you!

Be welcome and feel free to pull up a Pew. I hope to see you around.
But now, mu bed is calling me ungodly names. I'm a Pastafarian at the moment. "May His noodly appendage be upon you."

Considering that you've been 'around' for such awhile.. I'll just cut to the chase and give you your presentation tour.

Welcome Vaehne

We expect civility and decorum within all topics - Please Review This Link.


Be sure to try out our Ask ATS with the 'topic' search words of your choice. I'm sure you will find many threads to pick from to add your thoughts and opinions too. We encourage everyone to please contribute to existing threads rather than start a new one. This will also help guarantee that your thread won't end up as a duplicate located elsewhere. The ATS Search feature is your friend!


AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, so with that said...
Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret, also known as ATS, the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.


* Please check out those links posted above before getting on one of the rides. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

* Please be sure to act like an 'civil' adult and are at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward).

* Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride your all on. You should be mentally fit, stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented that may be contrary to your own.

* Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might expect. Be aware you also might end up learning something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride.

* Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

* Please have fun! But be aware that if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentially spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is not only for your safety, but also for those both young and old on the ride with you.


So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!



Johnny

Ah, I have not seen this Alien Church thread. I must investigate!

Thank you for your kind welcome. Rest well, and may His noodly appendage also be with you! ~_^
