Happy 35th Star Wars!!!

Well folks, it was 35 years ago today it all kicked off! Still can't believe it's been quite so long (I feel old!).

Any of you celebrating? Having screenings? Dressing up etc? Seems an appropriate excuse to get the projector out and fire up Puggo's 16mm transfer of Star Wars for my part :)

I actually didn't see Star Wars until 1980, in a double-bill with Empire. I will NEVER forget that day - absolutely blew me away and it's remained my favourite film ever since (I'm now 38). Had the comics, the figures, the toys, lapped up the radio series when it was on etc etc etc. Remember how long the wait seemed until Jedi 3 years later. I don't think that anticipation will ever be topped, for me at least.

Anyways, great days/memories!!!

Happy 35th :)

Hats off to Rian Johnson for this bit: (on twitter he's getting into it too: Rian Johnson (rcjohnso) on Twitter

 I hope that by the next milestone anniversary, the pioneering work by these amazing artists will again be made available for fans and future generations to appreciate.

It's on days like this that I wish the film had a home release I could watch.

Oh well. Harmy's it is.

I was thinking of putting on "Lapti Nek", dressing up like slave Leia in her metal bikini and maroon loincloth, then begin dancing in front of the mirror while tucking my penis between my legs and remarking on how I'd like to fuck myself.

25 years ago this weekend I was at a hotel near LAX for the 10th anniversary celebration. Egad I'm old!

My polite request to see the Clone Wars before 1999 is somewhere on this.

Who else is waiting for the announcement of the OUT on Blu that's supposed to be coming today?

Some people call them Force Ghosts. I call them Midichlorian Swarms.

Ha, I was there too! Can't remember what I wrote on that thing.

My goodness, 35 years. I can still remember when the special editions came out a couple months before the 20th anniversary.

Time has flown by at ludicrous speed.

One year ago from tonight I saw John Williams in concert (see my avatar)!  And I'm seeing him again a week from tomorrow.

Happy anniversary/birthday, Star Wars!

It's so weird, because today is my nephew's birthday (who is also a SW fan) and for some reason, I totally forgot about it also being SW's birthday this year which I normally never forget. Maybe because there's not much to celebrate in SW-land today. :-/

I must have remembered it subliminally, though, because early this morning I printed out a SW pic that I want to use to make a T-shirt.

Spike is showing the SE tonight. Nice that they remembered, if nothing else. I swear they've shown the trilogies more than HBO ever ran The Beastmaster.

If there's ever an OT convention, or some other sort of get together with you wonderful crazy people who keep these movies alive, I'll be the guy wearing the 10th anniversary t-shirt. Yes, it still fits. ;)

Ah, you guys are just jealous because I got Carrie Fisher to put lotion on her skin for me and you couldn't get her to do the same for yourselves.
