One of my earliest memories is seeing a few minutes of James Bond in The Spy Who Loved Me at a drive in movie theater in California in 1977. I was three years old. My parents took me to a double bill: Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo was first, and I was supposed to go to sleep after that while they watched James Bond. I fell asleep to the theme song "Nobody Does It Better", woke up again briefly to watch the car chase and fell asleep again after Bond drives out of the ocean.
Since then, I have been hooked. I have read all the novels, seen all the films more times than I can count, owned them all on VHS, Laserdisc, DVD and now Blu-ray, have an extensive library of books about James Bond, and I have had this domain name for over three years, but done nothing with it. I have re-designed the site at least 5 times, but never been happy enough with any design to actually complete it, nor have I written more than a few paragraphs of content for it. I never intended it to be a blog site, but - not wanting to create yet another site that just rehashed the plots, listed all the gadgets, vehicles, villains and bond girls - I think this is a good format for what I have to offer, and most importantly it lets me publish small amounts of detail at a time. I have an archive of dozens of magazine articles, TV Shows, wallpaper, movie posters and sound bytes. Enough to build an extensive digital scrapbook or dossier on James Bond. Check back often!
