Retrospective: Time Magazine, May 19, 1980

September 21, 2011 at 12:05 pm | Posted in Miscellaneous | 2 Comments

For awhile now (it seems like forever) I’ve been in the process of moving and downsizing.  Packing to move is bad enough; add downsizing to that and it becomes a real pain.  However, there is an upside.  Besides divesting yourself of a lot of “stuff” you just really don’t need (I call it the modified Jedi possessions plan), you can come across some treasures you forgot you had.

Yesterday I came across a treasure: my May 19, 1980 issue of Time magazine.  Emblazoned on the cover is the iconic Darth Vader and the words, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK!  Yep my copy of Time’s ESB issue, 2 days before the movie premiered.  Now I saw that movie in Hollywood at the Egyptian Theater (where it premiered) the week it came out.  In fact I stood in line for 3 hours with my future ex-husband to see that movie.  It was quite an experience and I still remember the cheering as our heroes made their appearance, the booing for Vader and the Dead Silence as the movie ended.  Boy, had Lucas slapped us with some shockers and an ending that was not an ending at all.  This was not the Star Wars we’d seen and fallen in love with three years before.  Hoping to recapture the feel of 30 years ago I reread the article and got more than I bargained for — in a good way.  Continue Reading Retrospective: Time Magazine, May 19, 1980…

Billy Dee Williams Defends Lando

It sounds like a joke but it is a serious question, not just for Billy Dee Williams but for a lot of actors who play the bad guys. One has to assume Tom Felton, Draco Mallfoy of Harry Potter fame, must get some razzing when he’s out trying to get his groceries for the week. Some folks  just don’t have the necessary mental filter to separate the actor from the character.

So from The Washington Post in a blog entry from 8/9/11 comes an interview with the Love Commander himself, in defense of Lando Calrissian. Click the link for more on the story or just enjoy the video below.
