My name is David Finley. I'm Almost 43, but I didn't even know of Lum's existence until my 40th birthday. I got hooked on anime way back in 1963, when I saw the original Tetusa Atoma (Astroboy) on NBC. I also saw Jungle Taiti,( Kimba) Speed Racer, and most of the others that ran off and on in the Us Tv market . But my first real exposure to Raw, Uncut Japanese Anime was in 1992, when I bought a commercially available video of "Project A-KO". This movie series really rekindled my interest in anime Big time... It was witty, clever, funny, and completely uncut and uncensored!

Later on, I discovered another series, the absolutely charming Nuku-Nuku, in 1995. Time jump ahead to Jan. 9th, 1996, my 40th birthday. It was about 6 in the evening, and i was wandering about the Midtown Manhattan Video stores, looking for something to buy myself. I wasn't even looking for anime at the time. Then, SHE caught my eye. I was in the COCONUTS video store, on 6th ave, and 51st street, when she changed my life forever. Anyhow, I saw a videotape in the anime section with the weirdest, yet most seductive young lady I had ever seen on the cover of any anime tape I had ever seen.

I don't know what it was about her that grabbed me first... The green hair... The horns... The Tiger stripes. Anyhow, this tape literally screamed for me to take it home... so, I plunked down my $ 25, and took it home. Thus , was my very first exposure to the UY universe, and to our beloved princess LUM. Two years later, and after spending a small fortune, My Lum and UY shrine continues to grow and prosper...

I can safely say that UY has truly become an obsession with me. I never thought that ANYTHING could dethrone Star Trek as My All time favorite movie and tv series. All it took was one look from a 17 year old green haired alien Japanese Exchange Student alien to put Captians Kirk, Picard, Sisco, and Janeway forever a poor second in my heart; The first and foremost in it having been Forever and Irrevocably replaced by our beloved princess Lum...

Now, some people may say I'm a hopeless, drooling Fan boy, Very much like somebody we all know and love in the UY universe. If this be so, I couldn't be happier.... :P
