    What can I say about 2003? X2 stormed Box Offices... Star Wars Galaxies launched... Pirates of the Caribbean stole the show... Blue Milk was procured... Indiana Jones found DvDs... Clone Wars cartoon rocked... Return of the King was celebrated... We have had some great times.

    I started this thread to reminisce over the past year before the New Year's first light out shines these memories... here I am raising a Blue Milk for next year but I'll leave you with this classic Fan Force moment.

    A Wednesday like any other I stroll into Jimmy's Shop. The fumes of Death Sticks catches me at the door and I see Jimmy laughing at our fearful leader. Not to be dissuade I walk in curious to the commotion. Jimmy looks at me and says the five words I'll never forget... "You can hear Vader breathe." Slightly chuckling I knew what had transpired.

    In galaxy far, far away... Riff and myself were hunting the previous night outside the Emperor's private retreat. During the fight a chill went down our spines as Vader's breathing haunted our ears. The experience was breathtaking for a couple of covert rebels but nevertheless, Jimmy had managed to laugh at our plight. At that moment I understood... those that did not get into character and play would never have the exhilaration of running from the compound knowing Vader was out to get you.

    /raises his glass to the next adventure!

    You can hear Vader breathe at the end of the Meco disco version of The Empire Strikes Back, as well.

    You omitted that 2003 saw the release of a new Hasbro Wampa.

    Daredevil the movie was also released. And yes, Pirates of the Carribean was the movie highlight!

    But you gotta admit Joe, that was one WEAK version of Vader in that song. :)

    By the way, hope you had a merry Christmas Lodreh and yes, 2003 was a memorable year. But there is one reason why I am looking forward to 04: I will be able to say "when Episode III comes out NEXT YEAR!"

    Spaceballs. You gotta love Dark Helmet. :)

    Actually I had quite a wonderful Christmas. I drank lots of... Hot Cocoa... got Highlander Season One on DvD, the Meaning of Life DvD, Pirates DvD, an awesome Gambit figure, Secret Ceremony Padme figure, M&M's (the candy not the figure), the Dragonomicon (D&D source book) and a couple of other things (like a Holo from the Devs... err, the SWG crowd will know)... but I think the most fun was the feeling like I was playing hooky from work.

    And yes Joe-Da I like Spaceballs... though my favorite part is watching Rick Moranis flying head first into the wall near the beginning... I still chuckle at that [face_laugh].

    LOL! Yeah, I still get the "you can hear Vader breathe" every time I go in the store. :) It has been a good year, and I think it will just get better next year! We gotta drag Eddie-wan to some of these parties we have been having, so he can get some blue milk! :D

    Even better... go scuba diving. :) When you put that regulator in your mouth, and go underwater, Vader is ALL you can think about, hehehehe...

    Yes it was the Tick... I can see them making a live action Tick movie... Jay Leno would be ideal for the lead.
