    I've traced each frame of several Ewoks episodes on to paper towels, scanned them into jpegs, colored them with PaintShop, printed them out with a laser jet, filmed them with a Poloroid instant movie camera, transferred it to beta, digitized it to a DVD, added the soundtrack from a reel-to-reel dub to mini-disc and copied it all to VCD.

    Oh wait, it's in PAL. Damn.

    Is there anyone who is going to the picnic who would be able to give me a ride?

    If so, what time were you planning on leaving the NW suburbs?


    EDIT(s): Even if someone could just give me a ride to Dave's house from the Ogilvie train station downtown, that would be awesome. ;)

    Hopefully you'll get a ride, but if not, it's just another 19 minutes on the Orange line from Ogilvie to get to my stop (and then a 5-10 minute walk).

    ref some of the finer points of this get together I note,

    If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be
    worth
    $49.00.


    With Enron,
    you would have had

    $16.50

    left of the original $1,000.00.

    -

    With WorldCom,
    you would have had less than
    $5.00 left.

    But, if you had purchased $1,000.00
    worth of Beer one year ago,
    drank all the beer,
    then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND,
    (give or take a few...you decide)

    you could have had

    $214.00.

    I just found out I will be in Chicago on Saturday afternoon. I don't know my exact schedule but I think I might be able to stop by, say hello, and wish Dave a fond farewell which would be really cool. Especially since he and Matt Springer and a few other of the Chicago force folks and I go way back to the days before Fan Force - back when the guy from the Seattle Star Wars Society thought that he could somehow turn his club into an international organization and sent me here to meet with them as an "emissary". (I still laugh about it.)

    So like - 50% chance I can come by, if that's all right by you. I'm sorry it's such short notice.

    'Bit of an update on the I-need-a-ride situation:

    I won't be able to leave until around 2 o'clock-ish due to work schedule. So, to refine my requestion... Is there anyone who is leaving (or passing through :p ) the northwest suburban area around or after 2PM?

    Once again, if you could let me know, that would be awesome. :D

    Sithy, I'm looking to take the Metra down and probably heading down the same time you are. What Metra line are you taking? Maybe we could meet up either at a train stop or on the train and then take a cab over the Bosh's.

    update

    got the Sithman pm and look to give him a DrJawa
    a ride there tomorrow.

    also,

    I have gone from having no time tomorrow, to having
    unlimited time for any Imperial (or Jedi) mission
    once I get to the......

    CF Picnic & Star Wars Movie Marathon
    (which is also starting to sound like a drinking marathon as well)

    so let it be written
    so let it be done

    Also, for those of you who'll be here for the classic trilogy, you may want to bring your favorite scented bug-repellent.

    Also, if people want to bring SW board games (Monopoly, Trivia etc.) there's plenty of space to spread out for games. All my board games are packed.
