30 years ago today, in what seems like a galaxy far, far away, Star Wars was released.
This is my favorite poster from what was for a long time my favorite movie.
I think it’s hard to overstate the effect that this film has had on our culture, and, though the later films do not quite stack up to the first two, I think it’s safe to say that the effects will be felt for a long, long time.
There will be a bunch of Star Wars links in today’s Linkzookery, so be sure to check back. In the meantime, angle the deflector shield while I make the calculations for the jump to light speed…
