"A little fantasy of mine, having to do with my desire to move south (but only with the promise of a good job waiting at the other end of the journey) goes like this: My first evening in this city I live in, I went to see SW:TPM. My last evening before leaving (here's the fantasy), I go to see SW:(Episode III)."

LOL! This reminds me of when they re-released the original movie and I felt compelled to see it six times because that was how many times I had seen it when it was originally out :)

I've gotten over that. I don't like him but I don't hate him... I'm actually going with my mother to the next concert she attends.

Hey, you weren't around the other day when I mentioned Andrew Peterson. Ever heard his stuff? He's similar, only I like him.

"I loved seeing the original Star Wars on the big screen. We only went once. We got Mom to give us the day off school and everything."

It's awesome on the big screen! :) When I went to see the re-release I had forgotten what it was like seeing it on the big screen until that Star Destroyer looms over the screen in the opening shot. It looked *so* huge! That first movie was just amazing.

His latest cd, "Love and Thunder" has a bunch of remarkable pieces. "The Silence of God" is wonderful. "Just as I Am" and "Canaan Bound" are also very very good. He has a way of invoking hymns in his lyrics, and his music is gentle, almost country. Nice theology, too.

It came out in '77 but some theaters were still showing it into '79 around here--this one theater had it for like two-and-a-half years! Back then there were no VCRs and no cable (at least by me) so that was the only way to see it. I would've loved being able to see it on a 12" screen, too--I bet I would've worn the tape out inside of a few months :) As it was I had a record with much of the soundtrack and dialogue on it, so I played that over and over to the point where I could recite the entire script off the top of my head.

Speaking of which, I just put it in the VCR now :)

Did you ever read the novel version of the original? I liked that and the first "fanfic" novel inspired by the original, Alan Dean Foster's "Splinter of the Mind's Eye". Foster was also writing some of the earliest "Star Trek" novels back then.

"Now that's VEY cool!! But you still don't have to like the movies, just the website!"

My brother requires me to like the movies, too, LOL! He gets really disappointed if I don't like something they make. His work on the website is interlinked with other stuff they do so it's sort of a team thing. Like for instance for DVDs he has to integrate the online interactive features with the website.

Yeah, the novel and some of the later novels - I read the Timothy Zahn ones, and Michael Stackpole's, and a number of others. Stackpole's were decent military SF!

VCR? What century are you in, man?

I confess I still don't own Star Wars on DVD.

I do, however, own both the original version AND the new release version on VHS, though my family has the original version on perma-loan, pretty much.

"VCR? What century are you in, man?"

LOL! I have a DVD in the other room too, but there's a method to my madness :) See, if I watch the VCR version instead of the DVD version, I can see the original without the extra added stuff. Remember they added the stuff when they re-released it?

I haven't read the later novels yet, but the ones I've heard described to me sound interesting. You ever read Brian Daley's "Han Solo at Stars End" and "Han Solo's Revenge"?--those were two of the other earliest ones. And then there was the Marvel Comics spinoff--I had like the first 80 issues of that at one time, now I think I only have the first six (covering the adaptation of the movie) and a few others. Those were fun! They'd have Han Solo doing, well, solo adventures and stuff.

I actually don't have the DVD of the first three movies, either. I have two different VHS versions: one boxed set of the original movies and one boxed set of the re-released version with the added material. Plus I think I have a version I recorded off TV the first time they showed the original on TV.

We don't have Star Wars on DVD either, mostly because by the time they were released on DVD we'd more or less lost interest.

Mmmmm...brownies! Someone brought some in?

I work with mostly guys, single ones at that...not sure whether it's a plus or a minus that it means people rarely bring in food...

A plus at least for another six months or so, I guess! The less chocolate available the better.

Yeah, well, she's been on the computer WAY too much and not getting her work done! She had been working on preparing an Anime Music video for Connecticon, which is coming up in July, in W. Hartford CT. Don't know if it was accepted; she hasn't heard.

She's working on finishing a course that supposed to be done by the end of June, HA! I'm being a slave driver the next two weeks!

Hi, OT, I'm just lurking, getting ready to cut the front lawn, got the back cut yesterday before that gully-washer came through! Wish I'd had BBque, I had my usual, a PBJ. That brownie sounds just heavenly! Did they provide milk to accentuate the experience?

Rosie, Jack Stack is the restaurant where we've taken both OT and RMDupree when we've mooted. It's a wonderful place for Kansas City style BBque.
