In 1977 when I was young and adorable (This is NOT a lie), a film was released that changed my personal perseption of movie making forever. (This is NOT a lie, either.)
It was only playing on a few screens and there was no advertising for it. It was completely word of mouth. We had friends who dragged us to this screening. Apparently everyone was dragging friends. The friends had no idea what the film was about and it was too hard to explain, so the dragging was happening en masse.
Star Wars. Episode IV. A New Hope.
We didn't call it that back then. We just called it Star Wars. I still am a bit unsure as to the number and official titles of the films, but that's not important right now.)
Happy Star Wars Day!
This is the kind of stuff we uber-geeks live for. May the 4th be with you! *salutes appropriately*
So today I'm in touch with my inner-Star-Wars-geek and I am all about The Force. Or in this case The Fourth. May the Fourth. May the Fourth Be With You. Get it?
Just for today I will endulge my inner-geek. And I'll post a few star wars related videos and links.
And even a photo of Darth Vader that I took on Hollywood Blvd. last week.
Yes. I caught him while he was texting. How cool is that?
Here's more Vader for your entertainment pleasure. Here's the one where he's being a jerk:
And here's the one where he's failing the tom-tom gps ad:
I could do this all day long…. (and maybe I will..)
Here's the Star Wars Help Desk…
And of course, the Darth Vader Volkswagen ad.
If you're Star Wars Uber-Geeks, (like we are) you must have a favorite line from the movie, like:
"That's no moon." or "The Sand People are easily startled but they'll soon be back, and in greater numbers."
What's your favorite Star Wars quote? (Dig deep!) Please share it.
If you get stuck, cruise over to Wookipedia today and get your fair share of Star Wars trivia.
And, oh yes….May the 4th be with you.
(Thanks for playing with me.) =D
