    Well people of Wellington our time has come!! On the 17th of June (just a couple of weeks away) we are going to have a casual meet for anyone who wants to join in.

    There is a movie festival on at Paramount and the Embassy and they are showing "Starwoids" a documentry on the EP1 fans who camped out for 7 weeks before the first showing in May 1999.

    As this will be the first time we all meet it will be a casual occasion, it's on a Sunday afternoon so I figured we get together watch the movie then go have coffee. Real casual and just relaxing.

    Details:
    What: Starwoids/coffee
    Where: Paramount Movie theatre
    When: 17th June, 2:30pm (movie starts at 3pm)
    Why: Why not
    cost: $11 (as far as I know) We shouldn't have to book either.

    Let me know if your interested.

    Can you get the details about the movie so I can enquire whether any of the Christchurch theatres will show it.

    And talking (writing) about theatres, I went to the 'Bigger Brother' comedy at the University on Saturday. Extremely funny and produced by that Master of many talents Chansplace! Being a Star Wars Fan I would have to say one of the most funny parts was Chansplace's rendition of 'Bohemian Rapsody' with Luke's story from ROTJ. Luke was played by Chansplace and some awesome lightsabre battling took place. That man knows how to wield his sabre!

    Thanks jace, it took heaps of practice to get that saber fight right! wasnt the best performance on my part, My microphone came off halfway thru, and I nearly tripped over Vader when i struck him down!
    I posted the script of that song when I wrote it somewhere on the Aus/NZ general forum, but i'll post it in the NZ sector for all those who couldnt see the show.

    Just got back from seeing Starwoids and I have to say there are some damn dedicated fans out there. Those Americans certainly don't do things by halves.

    Good to finally meet a couple of you as well, and we look forward to doing more stuff soon. :)
