20 years ago today!

I feel old…

Damn, me to! It seems time marches on so quick the older you get.

You have no idea, man.

To the anniversary post; Here’s something you all may not expect from me. I’ve never made any secret of my dislike for the only prequel I’ve ever seen and all the Lucas BS surrounding it (then and still). However, the year of advertising and marketing tie-ins when it was released is a time I remember somewhat fondly.

It was a very big deal to this original fan to have a Star Wars film coming out so many years after I’d become disenchanted with anything post-1977. I was skeptical for sure but went in with an open mind. I would soon be wildly let down but the buildup and anticipation was fun. For some reason, I have emotionally separated it from the film itself.
