    the chicken biscuit that I jacked from a buffet line (which I grew attached too and named C.B.)finally met his demise at the hands of the trashcan monster. Many 3rd world country kids cried out and were suddenly silenced. I hated to do it, but the little guy was getting cold and wierder by the second...I had no other choice. C.B. , Forgive me.

    Greetings from Nashvegas!

    Hey, those Wayne & Garth guys look great! What a couple of pros.

    Nice seeing everybody this weekend! We certainly had an excellent time. It was a blast!

    Whoa, I had no idea that was Dylan and Michael as Garth and Wayne, LOL!!! Wish we'd gotten a pic of you two with me and Jeff as Dark Helmet and Princess Vespa's Stunt Double! :D

    Thanks again to the Hothlanta Rebels for the FanForce dinner, Mr. STAR WARS contest, and everything else y'all did to make this Dragon*Con such a great time! Hopefully next year we'll have a bigger Dallas contingent joining us for Dragon*Con 2005.

    And apologies for my (suck-up) nervous acceptance speech after the contest...to add to it, I hereby promise to represent the office of Mr. STAR WARS to the best of my geek abilities, and to promote fandom in all its many shapes and forms as my formidable super-dork powers will allow.


    And remember, kiddies:

    JAR JAR RULES!

    :p

    How every cool! You are wearing your title proudly, Nabooty!

    And Noom...it wasn't easy to find everyone this weekend. We all tend to scatter to play with our out-of-town friends, so we end up not hanging out together at D*C.

    And the film? It not only had Darkrider, but Jimmy (the trooper who is in therapy and one of the Imperial officers) and Evan (the trooper who keeps trying to hit on everyone and who actually scores a shot after falling).

    I can't remember who else was in there. But it's a great film and the winner of the Best Comedy award, this year. (http://atomfilms.shockwave.com/af/content/recruitment)

    I had a great time as well. Congrats to Nabooty_call as this year's Mr. Star Wars.

    Rosiewook is right though. Too many people to see from out of town. This is the one chance to get together with them I usually have. I still see my GA friends and did hang out with quite a few of them at night, but during the day I'm off doing panels, shopping and hanging out with the out of towners. I suspect most of us locals are like that too.

    As for the 'Recuitment' fan film, it was a blast to make. The video had several local 501st members in it. Jedireject (Jimmy), Evan Reynolds, Adam Ellis (Ashtep), John Ward (Obi-John) and Mrs. Darkrider (Anita) were all in it. Evan & Jimmy also played officers. I guess I'm recognizable because I get to die so often, LOL.

    Ah, only another year left until D*C05. Post con depression is setting in now...<<sigh>>...

    Hey all,

    Just coming over here to say that DragonCon was great and I appreciate all that the Hothlanta Rebels did to make it so.

    The recruitment film was very creative and a hilarious jab at those sharp-shooting stormtroopers that we all know and love. And I thought the atmosphere was more relaxed and fun than last year -- and it will only get better next.

    And I want to thank all who came to the panel that myself and Jedi Scholar hosting on Saturday night before Mr. Star Wars. It was a great discussion.

    And speaking of Mr. Star Wars, I thought that the Mr. Star Wars Contest (and your wonderful likeness to good ol' Ewan Nabooty Call ) was one of the funniest things I have ever seen in my life. All I keep hearing in mind even now is...

    Crockett! Crockett! Crockett!

    The shirt was pretty sweet. Of course whoever he was ;) didn't put it up for auction. :mad: I'm sure it would've made a bit.

    I don't recall Wayne and Garth joining the Hothlanta Rebels? :p

    But, they're more than welcome to join us. ;)

    My question right now is...will we see them at the next Dragon*Con?


    EDIT: Great pictures, Bria. :D

    Hmmm...that's kinda up the air right now, because, um, Wayne's parents 40th wedding anniversary will be next year during Dragon*Con weekend so I...uh, I mean Wayne might not be able to make it. Never know, maybe you'll see Wayne & Garth at CIII!

    Hey, all. Local Atlanta Metro (Fairburn) guy (and new SW author) here. In case you missed the Star Wars Fan Audio Revolution panel at DC '04 (or '03 or ConCarolinas '04 even), since I know a lot of people took off before it was held early on the last day of the con, there's a recording of the panel(s) on our site (the panel sponsor), starwarsfanworks.com.

    It's under "Convention Coverage" in this section:
