Whatever happened to...

Isis Kaldera, Gendo and Darth Eggplant? I still see Darth on rare occasions on MSN, but what happened to Isis and Gendo? I miss the good old days

I'm here if it helps...
After all, you were away for some time, and you came back, so who knows.

I noticed the absence of Gendo and Eggplant, but I had completely forgotten about Isis! Wow.


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!

I don't even know who Eggplant and Isis are. Either I'm really stupid or too fresh to know them.

Though Isis sounds like a name I might have seen somewhere...

I don't know, but I'm pretty sure that Naomi was here when all three were still around. But, they just vanished.

I think one of the main reasons Darth doesn't post round these parts anymore is that he's a moderator on another forum, so he doesn't have much time for this one. At least I think so, I haven't talked to him in ages.

LOL, no I have not forgotten
about you Sanspoof, or the GFN.
my first fourm community!
sorry, I never show up any more,
occasionally, I do peak at the
Lucas Forums. but donut post.
mmmmm donut.

anyhow for a bit of
Where In The World IZ\ARE:

Darth Eggplant:
Myself, I am doing well and fine.
I have returned back to work
after a long, long abscence
due to past health reasons.
so unfortuneately money
and work sort of get in the way
of having fun on a computer.
...then there was Zim!
Invader Zim and my purple alien
Jhonen Vasquez avatar.

A Website was created, not the first
but a very good one actually,
for the cartoon series Invader Zim.
The site was created by a really great
guy named Invader Gua. It also had the
Doomulous prescence of Invader Invidlord.
...and I was asked to become
Invader Eggplant.

lol, the website www.badbadrubberpiggy.com
was not even a month old
when our first forum "the Babble"
ver 1.0 was created
on the cutecast forum thingy.
then as time progressed,
we moved onto the
vBulletin forum community,
because I had such good
memories of this vB forum
and the other Lucasarts forums
I belonged to.

so I was one of the original Invaders
that at the very beginning of a forum
communities birth, and I was made *snrk*
a mod. In fact our forum was so young
and new back then, that I was mod in
every single forum and subforum with
Invader's Gua and Invidlord.
as time past and "piggies"
what we call members started joining,
our forum began having new mods;
which we call 'SIR UNITS'(you need
to know the Zim cartoon to get it)
then came the 'Invaders'= Super Mods.
I was promoted to 'Invader'\Super Mod
and now had several 'SIR UNIT'\mods
to help assist maintain some semblance
of reason to the MADNESS!

*important note to GFN forum members*
**especially mods\super mods\admin's**
being a member of a forum and having
fun IZ one thing. maintaining a forum
so others can have fun, as well as
yourself, IZ well... I cringe now
thinking of my old n00bish self.
things I said, things I did...etc.

well I was now Invader Eggplant
an 'Invader'\Super Mods of the
BBRP Babble forum.
...and well stuff happened.
original founder Invader Gua
had to close down the whole thing
website\forum, it was sad.
yet at the 11th hour.
more like 11:59 really
someone named GrandPa G
came along and saved both
BBRP and the Babble.

...*prak* the clock says go to work
so I will continue this later.
today I work a 4 hour shift,
so it IZ 7:58AM EST
around Noonish I will continue.

... anyhow a bit later than 12 noon,
almost 12 midnight, but i will continue.

so the badbadrubberpiggy website and the
Babble forum was saved by GrandPa G,
and then a while after that we went looking
for a new forum to call home. I sugguested
vBulletin, and well The Babble ver2.0
or vBabble IZ part of the vB community.

and a little while after the Babble ver2
was founded, GrandPa G promoted me to the
postion of Tallest (which IZ what we call)
Admin's on our forum. and being a Tallest
@ the Babble does keep me busy,
as does being a member too.

I create a lot of avatars and siggy's
for babble members, then there are the
emails, PM's, and messenger chat thingies.
The Babble IZ a different sort of forum
community from the ones I belong to here.
membership @ the BBRP Babble IZ
primarily female. Our forum too IZ not
as strict about things like double
posting or spam. which would bother some
I am sure. We also have a more liberal
size restriction on avatar and siggys.
LOL, I mean we do not encourage piggies
to create avatars which are 500x500 pixels,
but its nice to have more flexibility
in graphic elements.
We also run seasonal contests quite often
which I am a major part of, so the BBRP
and the Babble keep me busy.

one major reason why I do not haunt the
lucas forums any longer IZ I find page
load time between posting posts, and reading
posts quite a long time ago, became for me
(anyhow) very slow and time consuming,
with a 56k modem.

Anyhow for people like Sanspoof
who may know or rember me.
that IZ where I am now a days
my new forums IZ a great place
and I enjoy myself a lot.
I even have my own eggplant emodicon
:eggy: I don't think it will show here
but it looks just like my avatar.

I will try to stop in now and again,
as I am still very Nostalgic about
the GFN. and maybe if any of you
have time, stop by the BBRP Babble
and look for Invader Eggplant.

LOL, loyalty IZ one thing
actually visiting your forum another.
we have enough mod's at the babble
that I can come get away from all
the little piggies.
and i guess i need a new siggy
as all i am getting IZ the old red X
can't even remember what the sig was?


GFN4EVER!


and oh that remeinds me, Gendo.
Gendo last time I spoke with him
and it's been a while IZ a daddy.
he will be by now, before the babby
was just a few months away.
so if you don't see Gendo it's because
he IZ busy being a proud and responsible
pappy.

Alright. Cool to see your name on the board, even if its just for the occasion.


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing?
