Growing Up Star Wars Grows Up!


Well, after 7 months of plodding along at a steady rate, with an average of 50 new members a month and a nice number of wonderful contributions from said members - the Growing Up Star Wars 1977-1985 Flickr group started by Todd Franklin, myself, and originally, Mike Middleton, has decided to hit the big time!


From Time magazine's Tech and geek blog (written by longtime Simpsons writer Matt Selman!), to Flickr's official blog (viewed by umpteen zillion people a day), to feeder and aggregator destinations like MetalFilter, Digg and others - the bandwagon jumpin' on really has begun in the last few days. Longtime GUSW member Wil Wheaton wrote a nice entry on his wacky blog about our time-machine of a group that looks back at the first wave of Star Wars fans and their many different ways of enjoying and expressing their love for "That Space Movie", and many others seem to be following his Starfleet suit.


So if you're among the apparently very few who have yet to test the nostalgia-infused waters of this worthwhile time-waster please drop by for a how-do! We'd love to have you visit, and even more, we'd love to see YOU there!

It's on fire over there!

Unexpected, huh? But very good! That's the second time something like that's happened recently.

Making me increasingly jealous that I don't think I have anything to post. . .

Although I think my driveway's in one shot in the group, so I get half-points for that.

Half-points indeed! That may be one of your stormtroopers in that shot as well.
