|Trip, not to be a bummer, but the bear in your sig was recently run over and killed. Not quite a happy ending for the poor fellow.|
Are you serious? f*ck! Now that is crazy.
And to stay on topic. Nice to see another brother from the first generation of star wars kids.
When the bear fell from the tree they put on a tracking device while it was still drugged. That's how they found out about its demise. The article on this was posted about a day or so ago.
I actually had one of those watches. Not the exact one but another Star Wars related watch that had interchangable stickers for the faceplate.
Because Star Wars was such a big event back then our 5th grade class had a Star Wars related Christmas play. I was C3PO. And, yes, I did watch the Star Wars Holiday Special. Most of my memories on it are fuzzy. Considering what I heard about it this may not be a bad thing.
Back when I was living in San Francisco my father was a CSM and we were living on the Presidio Army Base (best base ever). We stayed until 1993. It was eventually closed down in the mid-nineties. Later, Lucas moved most of his operations to the Presidio which makes me very happy. I would absolutely love to go back to personally see what he has done with the place. Based on the pictures I've seen it looks awesome.
