    I'm still here too.

    Though in retrospect there were points I would have liked to be a little different, I don't regret one second of the time I spent with you guys.

    I have my tickets to all 9 showings and both trailers framed on the wall with my countdown clock hanging from it, and I wear my CDD shirt with the big, "200 hours" on the back with pride.

    Though I'm indulging more in my Transfan side right now in the movie-lull, StarWars has been and always will be something special.
    Just like those weeks spent outside in a field behind Sams club.
    That my friends, was a magic I'll never forget and will cherish. And it makes for great stories to tell new friends who ask about the CDD shirt. ;)

    I actually thought Episode I was really a great flick. I guess the "purists" didn't like it, but it had to be different than the 1st movies, or the story would have run into a rut. Plus, I think Lucs did a Hell of a job differentiating between the pre-rebel empire galaxy and the rebellion galaxy. This added a bit of "hisotrical" reality to the story line, and complemented alot of the books and comics that have been out quite well.
    I think the Sith thing was not expanded on enough, but the other scenes made up for the lack in the story thread there.

    I think we all just got old.....
    Plus how can we watch the movie that was the basis of our childhood with the mind of a (I was 6 in '77)kid.
    Now we pay for our own movies and instead of playing with our SW toys we display them.

    .....skippin' Chewbacca like a stone.

    I still play with my SW toys. I can't help it. I even make little sound effects.

    I miss the days when a desk or nightstand could double for the Imperial or Rebel base, or some out-of-the-way alien world.

    Like objective time that's slowly trapping us in amber, my figs now stand atop my desk, immobile, when once the furniture was a living world....

    Contrast that with the dynamic visual realm of Episode I....
