I watched the entire OT last night for the..... thousandth or so time.
A smirk still came across my face when Han angrily replies to Chewie's laughter after being shot down by Leia with "laugh it up fuzzball. laugh it up".
I still pumped my fist in the air when the Falcon saved Luke's arse and blasted Vader off Luke's tail for the winning field goal. (I also accompanied my fist with a loud "yahoooooo" that scared the crap out of my pet rabbit).
I still silently lip-synch my way through all of Vader's lines.
I still get a giddy-rush when I see Vader's silhouette suddenly light up in a red glow.
My mouth still hangs ajar when Luke lets of a salvo of saber swings and knocks down Vader.
I still pretend I'm an Orchestra conductor at the end of ANH, when Han, Chewie, and Luke get their medals.
God I love these movies.
With the upcoming release of the "uber" DVD's, I just had to get this off my chest and say thank you to the OT. I love the true originals, and nothing can ever replace them.
I was the founder and only member of the short-lived Star Wars club in my middle school. Since I was 4 years old, I would dress up as a disfigured Darth Vader for Halloween. I did my AP English senior project on "Star Wars as a world-wide cultural influence", which I am proud to say, received an A after I gave an hour-long presentation to my class with no notes or previous "studying" other than me watching the movies.
I've stood by Lucas's side while he steered the boat into a coral reef. I still stand here as the boat sinks. Before all is lost, and Star Wars has lost the respect that it rightly deserves with the coming of a TV series and episode 3, I still remain true to the past.
Thank you Star Wars.
Bravo, beautiful speech.
Man, i drew hundreds of stuff when iw as younger (i still do now, but much less frequent). Oh and who has seen EP2 more times than i did (i just had the feeling for it watching it 15 times after i got the dvd)
I wish i could say all that... Without lying.
Why am i repeating myself?
because it's fitting.
When we can hear your inner monologue, it isn't!
Shut up number three! [/Insane schizofrenic rambling]
Anyway, you're a true fan. that's really all i can say about all this.
must've been stupid to be the only member on the starwars club... :/
Amen to that, ckcsaber.
yes, thank you star wars indeed.
throughout my life star wars has been a constant source of entertainment.
i remember my mum making me an ewok cake for my 4th birthday.
i remember seeing david prowse, all dressed up in his vader suit in a toy store in london. he was promoting the new line of The Return of Jedi toys, it was 1984 and i was 5 years old.
it's 20 years later, and soon i'll be standing in line to see Ep III, giddy with excitement.
You old folks make me jealous.
Truly. Well spoken, ckc. Star Wars will never fade from my life. I'm speechless.
