Stop in, look around, have a drink and crank some tunes. I'll be posting some songs ripped from records, some out of print and hard to find stuff, some songs by artists you should be listening to, and a few mixes here and there.

30 Years Ago Today
Star Wars opened on this day in 1977 changing the lives of millions of kids, myself included. As we all know, it opened pretty quietly to just around 32 theaters and gradually grew through the year and peaking in 1978. After badgering and badgering my parents, I finally got to see it. Not exactly sure of the date. This was obviously before cable, internet, and all that jazz. The only real thing I had to cling to was my Star Wars cards. I looked at these pictures for hours. They totally blew my mind. I look at the set over at bubblegum-cards.com and it really brings me back to the feelings they gave me way back when. It really brings back some fond memories. After looking at these, I remember why I love this movie, and the whole Original Trilogy, so much. I seem to forget this due to the recent movies and craziness from Lucas. The whole Star Wars brand now seems to be spinning out of control in every direction and I don't think I could keep up even if I wanted to. That being said, I still have to really give George Lucas some props and say Thanks George for making the best movie ever!
Look around the site here and you will find some classic Star Wars records.
