    Tommorw is Star Wars 30th anniversary

    May 25, 1977 Star Wars hit the Movie Screens.

    My brother took me to go see the movie that night, as a 10 yr old I had no idea about this movie, but I was blown away by what I saw that night.

    The sad part about this annoversary is that this really kicked off the star wars toys mania, and brought about the decline of the 8 inch Mego figure


    Think B.A. Where did you hide the Megos?

    Yep,
    I seen it on opening day at my local mall theatre.
    My best buddy's mom took both of us......
    I was 12.
    The line went outside the theatre and into the mall.
    I still remember the theatre selling "standing room only" tickets.
    People were sitting on the floor in the isles.
    I bet you'd never see that today
    We totally enjoyed it and she took us to McDonalds afterward.
    My short term memory is getting nasty, but I can still clearly remember junk like this

    First time I got the folks to take me to Star Wars, it was sold out so we saw "The Deep" instead. Jackie Bissett in a wet TV shirt was not enough to dull the disapointment.

    Finally did see Star Wars I believe a couple weeks later but even before that, it was indeed the year of Star Wars.

    It wasn't just a movie, it was a Kid culture earthquake. It crept into all kids lives through school and friends.

    George has done a lot to take us away from those original feelings about Star Wars, but really nothing can destroy it.

    I was only 6 months old when it came out, so my first Star Wars movie was Jedi. I guess my mom thought I was too young for ESB when it came out.

    I gotta get my butt to the post office and buy some Star Wars stamps

    Happy Birthday Star Wars. I ordered 3 sets of stamps today when I went to the post office and they'll mail 'em out tomorrow so I won't have to go again on my lunch break.

    On Monday evening, the History Channel is supposed to air a new Star Wars special. It looks pretty interesting.

    Rampart, this is Squad 51. How do you read?

    Yep, I remember seeing it in the theatre...it wasn't opening weekend but it hadn't been in the theatre too long....went to see it as part of a friend's birthday party...I remember my jaw dropped at the special effects...had never seen anything like it before.

    There are a lot of 30th anniversary commeratives coming out this year. I know Hallmark has a 30th anniversary Star Wars ornament.
