    Okay, this is the second time that I'm doing this. I responded to that other guy that was wondering if anyone knew of me and I didn't see my reply to his post. Anyway's yes, I am the notorious Eric Castillo!!! Hehehehe. I was told my many of my friends that someone was trying to find out who I was, which I find kinda funny. I look consider "any fan" of Star Wars a very important part of the success of the films and not just me, much less consider myself interesting or unique. I can say this though, it was a great experience being at the premiere! With all the hype and excitment, I couldn't have hoped for more. I just wanted to be a part the the country's enthusiasm and encourge others to do so as well. That evening was so great and the people that I've met was terrific! I share a lot of the credit to my friends who helped and supported me. I am also greatful to some of the people that have become my friends. (I hope). Life is full of suprises and that one night was a welcomed one. Anyways, I'll keep checking the post as much as I can and for those who were curious about who I am, I guess the mystry is over.

    ^^^ 35 hours, that's impressive, I on the other hand was only able to camp out for 26 hours, but, I did fly up to the mainland to camp out though.

    Hi everyone out there! Thanks for all the replies. I just checked out the site and it's cool to know that someone is reading all this. It's really cool. Here's a "thought of the day". Ever wonder how art imitates life? Well in the case of Star Wars it couldn't be anymore true. I see that there are all good things and bad. And Lucas has made that pretty clear in his films. Maybe not so black and white but in a mythological way. In all myths no matter what part of the world your from, most myths have a basic stuggle of good and evil. And in each of the stories the hero's are faced with a choice for good or evil. To most people is seems like it could be very easy, but the choices may seem "clouded or uncertain" because the final results can still lead to one or the other. In the case of Anakin, his youth and passion is driven strongly by his unstable emotions and feelings and he "feels" that his intentions are for the greater good. Unfortunately we know that his final choices eventually led to the fall of the Republic and the rise of the Empire. In contrast you can't really blame his youth and his passion for his demise, look at his son Luke. Luke was also young and passionate and he was also tempted my the dark side. But it was his better judgement and guidence from both Yoda and Obi-wan that gave him his real talent. Poor Anakin wasn't so fortunate because I think that Anakin was not given that close guidence or relationship that they had given Luke. Obi-wan probably (in my opinion) sacrificed the most for Anakin so that the force could be once again be balanced...he gave up his life! Strange. I see such a cool similarity between art and life. Something that we may or may not face everyday in our own lives. Pretty neat huh? Something to think about.

    how our children are raised makes the difference how much they have to struggle growing into their adult lives, and how they approach problem solving to resolution. seems like it hasn't changed much since adam and eve. mythology says the same thing in different stories. folks like GL just make it more relevant in their story-telling. for those whose raising could have been better, GL's SW seems to have filled those voids, and made better people of us all.

    Eric...glad to see you've joined the small group that congregates here every so often. Yeah...I think what keeps Star Wars going is how it personally speaks to each person. Sometimes the Anakin in us wants to gain power. The Luke in us wants to do the right thing. The Han Solo in us feels like we can take on the whole Empire (or was that Dack?).

    As small as Hawaii is, I hope the Star Wars community here can be tight-knit. I think mac-nut has done a wonderful job so far. I'm glad there are people like Eric who aren't afraid to go on TV and show others his talents and passions.

    don't forget. We'll be picnicing at Ala Moana Park, diamond head side, makai, at the bend of the road, at the end of the wall next to the yacht moorings, where the fishermen hog all the space. look for our dark tan chevy van. We'll have a small greenish canopy up. We'll be there from 0430 till after fireworks. Cossybear will be doing her celebration up at schofield barracks since she lives in Waialua. I can't bribe her enough to come to town, for some reason. :D :D :D
