Thank you all for coming! And for everyone watching and participating from home via that camera, we hope you can enjoy the day ~almost~ as much as being there!
Bye for now!
Happy travels! You know the drill!
"It isn't meant literally!"
Blessed are the cheesemakers. . .
The thread is eleventy-one today!
'Course I'm not an auto repair person, I don't play one on TV, and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. :)
Ok, dirt roads we don't have.
I am very happy for you on this and hope the skies are bright and clear, the joy out-spreading and much good luck fall upon your path!
I will not even be able to attend via website as we have a family reunion that day (one I am not looking forward to)
OK... and what about on Saturday? ;~D
"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 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.
'Cause it's still showing the last picture from last night... after it got dark. Ramius hasn't started it up again yet today.
Heavenly Father, remember the traveller,
Bring them safely home...
I know what song that's from...
lovely new digs... we'll be tuned in come the time...
yes, but I know your dislike for that particular artist...
Thank you g'nad! I hope and pray all our travelers have nice smooth flights, and a wonderful visit here!!
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.
missed that... I'll google him up... anything you particularly like?...
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.
Yeah, now imagine you'd only ever seen Star Wars on a 12" screen, and then bang. The first one came out, when, 78?
Thank you, kind sir! I wish all of our dear friends here were able to come too.
Yeah, then too! ;o)
Hey, a certain someone promised me all the way back in May that she'd be making more of an effort to be on thread... what're your family up to, anyway?
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.
Mornin'... [sip] <-- coffee this time
Lovely day again. If this weather holds... and the levee don't break... should be good times.
"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.
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.
Gonna go exercise a little--back in a bit.
G'morning! The folks just called, they're on their way here.
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.
I'm back! It's up to the Cantina Scene. Obi-wan just laid the smack down on Walrusman. They're about to meet Han. . .
BTW, how far'd you get in "Dracula"? I finished Chapter 4.
I've always wondered how come Princess Leia has a British accent up to when Alderaan is destroyed and after that she has an American accent--hmmm. . .
I read a bit more last night. I think Jonathan has escaped - it's gone off to England now. Fascinating. I love the old style writing.
Grr, and now I've got a nasty little problem to solve here at work...
Confounded relatives! Hanging on the bell all day, never giving us a moment's peace!
Just kidding - should be a fun day. Pray for their safety with pony rides.... we've done this before but lots of little folk and big animals is always a game of chance!
That sounds like the chapter ahead of where I left off--Jonathan was just about to try to escape. The old-style writing is pretty neat, yeah.
What's the nasty work problem?
They catered Jack Stack at work today for some corporate big wig....need to go walk before a major insulin attack occurs.
What's Jack Stack?
Oh lordy this afternoon is dragging...
KC barbecue. I over did it with the frosted fudge brownie with nuts.
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.
Can I have this?
