Why was Star Wars cool? One man's opinion:

Bear in mind that I was 6 or 7 when I saw it.

Anyway - the trash compactor. And the incidental music during the trash compaction.

Why did that particular scene ring the badass bell in my head when I saw it? Maybe that is just where the backlog of mind-blowings caught up with me. Maybe it's the peek into the implied backdrop (of course a Death Star will generate garbage - wonder what they do with it?). Pretty prosaic epiphany...

The Jawa music too was cool.

FLGS breaking news: The Griffon, South Bend Indiana

I grew up gaming in the Griffon Bookstore and have nothing but love and respect for the people that run it. Even did a brief email 'interview' with them a while back... I don't live there anymore, but a friend of mine sent me a link to an article in the newspaper there which confirms a long held suspicion of mine... The mild-mannered propriator of the Griffon might really be a Jedi.
