    You know I stressed a bit when I bought my stormtrooper costume. It was a lot of money and I thought I might wear it a few times and sell it. I had no idea the way it would change my life. On my way home from Austin last night I mentioned to Angie how I am still tickled at the way our lives have been enriched from that seemingly simple purchase.

    Yesterday we went to a photoshoot for the garrison. The shoot was in the small town of Driftwood,Tx just outside of Austin. The thing that was intriguing was that it was for Wired magazine , a national magazine! Secondly it was for a new movie coming soon called Fanboys.

    Fanboys is a movie that is set before Episode I TPM comes out. It's a movie about 4 buddies that love Star Wars and are in geek heaven with the new movie coming out when one of the comes down with terminal cancer. Upon realizing their friend is not going to see TPM they take him across the country to break in to Skywalker Ranch and sneak a peek at the movie before he succumbs to Cancer. The writer, Ernest Cline lives in Austin and this was his photoshoot. We were there for props.

    When the request came in from Driftwood,TX no one really wanted to go initially. We were afraid of a smear piece and don't even mention the long drive for just about everyone. After we found out it was not going to be a smear piece a few of us decided why not, national magazine, not something you get to do everyday. Initially it was going to be 6 of us total, then they told us they needed 15! The call went out, and the troops responded in grand fashion, coming from the DFW area, San Antonio and Houston. We canvased the state! We even had a visitor from 70th Explorers in Kansas!

    So Sunday morning bright and early we get up and drive on in to Driftwood. The place is small, an old Texaco station... The photographer's name is Dan Winters. He is very personable and easy going. He was geeking out on all the Star Wars costumes and just having a good ol time. I thought ok dinky place, nice guy, hard to believe this is for Wired Magazine. They took a handful of single costume images before we were doing the big group shot with the writer, Ernie. Dade got to be one of those characters! CooL!
    Here are some pics...

    It was a fantastic experience... the friends and fun and everything just could not have been better. Ernie Cline was awesome. He was a SW nerd like us and he got along with everyone famously! We ended the day at the Salt Lick BBQ a table of 30, great conversation and new friend of the Empire. It was well worth the long drive... I didn't want it to end! I came home last night happy, no giddy this had been a great troop, huge turnout and everything went smoothly with no drama or grief.

    Then today I decided I would look up the photographer to see "if" he had done anything like this before...ummm yea! HFS!!! Dan Winters is an icon in the industry apparently. I was dumbfounded when I visited his website and read his bio... addition to regluar assignments for magazines such as The New York Times Magazine, Esquire, GQ, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, Los Angeles Magazine, W Magazine, Fortune, Premier, Discover, Gourmet, Entertainment Weekly, Texas Monthly Magazine, and Rolling Stone and other National and international publications. His clients for print advertising include Nike, Microsoft, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Sony, Bose, Saturn, Converse, Warner Bothers,Parmount, Dreamworks, Columbia Tri-Star and Twentieth Century Fox. Regular music clients include RCA, A&M, Sony BMG, Warner Bothers and Epitaph.

    Be sure you stop by and see his site at His body of work is well decorated with awards and then there are the people he has photographed. All I can say is wow! I am blown away! Once again that simple little purchase of a box 'o plastic turns out to really make a fantastic memory we'll cherish for years to come. can you see me smiling?

    So... Cloverfield... hmmm, let me whet your whistle.

    First there is the fictional company Slusho where they find a magical ingredient that makes you want to drink Slushos. The website is very weird and I don;t know how to make heads or tales out of it... reminds me of the whole I love bees Halo campaign.

    The main character in the movie is wearing a Slusho t-shirt and is getting promoted to Japan and the parent company is TAGRUATO. They also have a website This site had pages before, but now is just a single image with a word in Japanese I am trying to get a translation still...

    Then there is the site where there are some really weird pics and a recipe containing some secret ingredient?!?!

    All of that being said here is the review I just posted in Baytown Talk...
    It depends on how you watch a movie as to whether you will like this. If you want a popcorn munching, no thinking involved, Saturday afternoon action flick then this is not really your movie. If you get sick from the motion of a shaky camera don't go see this, we had at least one vomit in our theater. On the other hand if you allow yourself to get involved in the movie, put yourself in the shoes of the actors and see it through their eyes, you "might" enjoy it. The movie certainly had it's moments of tremendous despair. I felt as though I got a bit wrapped up in it in some parts to the point where I felt my chest beating and other than a few young kids making wise cracks in the quiet scenes, our theater was riveted to the end. You can tell when a bad movie is playing, there is always more fidgeting, cell phone sms-ing(ANNOYING!), and people going to the bathroom. We had NONE of that except the vomit girl and our theater was full up!















    I think people give bad reviews when they don't get the "happy ending". If you walk out of the theater with bad feelings because the hero died or everyone died or the monster wins etc... that is the last thing you will remember and I think people project that feeling to say the whole thing sucked because they feel bad at the end. I did not think it was great, but it was worth seeing. Definitely go see it if you like those end of the world, deep despair, helpless feeling kind of movies. If you do see it take note in the middle of the scenes, especially before the monster is revealed like the very beginning of the rumble, if your not on the edge of your seat. I wonder what I would do in that situation, how would I protect my family how would we get out or would we hunker down... I don't know but it was sure was fun to be forced to confront that feeling for an hour or so.

    I'd say 7/10.
