    Greetings Everybody,

    Do you hear that clock ticking? That's right Episode III is now just 365 days away. One year from tonight will begin the first midnight showings. :cool:

    Are you excited yet? Anyone care to get in line? ;)

    I know $50 an hour is a bit pricey, but I'll do it! I've got to get to film school somehow. (ha, ha) ;)

    I didn't have to pay for AOTC. :D I did a little guard duty with Jedi robes and a lightsaber and got in for free.

    Did the same thing with "The Matrix: Reloaded". We all dressed up in Matrx-ish garb, pretended we were a crew, went to the mall and promoted, and they let us in. :D

    I'd love to do that with "Harry Potter" . . . I'm shorter than Hermione, so . . . it could work. *g*

    Yes, Dana, you're welcome for the AOTC tickets.

    And you may want to check that Captain Cardboard claim..... :)

    No, no, I know "Captain Cardboard" came from an episode of Buffy (it was Spike that used it, in reference to Riley, when he was talking to Buffy), but I just meant that I'm the one who first applied it to Jag Fel. If you see someone on the boards here saying something about "Captain Cardboard", that's who it is and I'm the one who started it.

    And I really appreciate the length you went to, to arrange the AOTC thing. That was a blast. :)

    Ahh yes, Ep. 2 at the Scera opening night was just the awesomest.

    Wish Matrix Reloaded had been worth it.

    Would be cool if I could be up there with you guys again for Ep. 3.

    *GASP, he's back from the dead and he's posting!*

    Greetings Matt,

    Welcome back as you say "from the dead." ;)

    Yes... Too bad you won't be here for Episode III because we are going to have one big party! :D

    Hope things are going well for you out in California. You gotta be loving all the acclaim that "Napoleon Dynamite" is getting. ;)

    Later,

    Well, I didn't say I would miss it, just said that it would be cool if I could be out there...

    All I'm saying is IT MIGHT HAPPEN.

    Cuz that was like the coolest. :p

    Yeah, AotC was fun. Too bad my Pinata's never got broken. Wait, that's not a bad thing cause they were so cool. I would have cried had they been broken.

    The kids down in the RMFF made a death star pinata.

    We beat it with lightsabers. Twas fun. Best thing was what was inside it.

    One of the guys in the Alpine Garrison did just that for his son's birthday party last month! :cool:

    The Death Star does seem to make a good piñata. :p
