ROTS is almost 5 years old, where did the time go?
God man, this movie is almost 5 years old. I remember like it was yesterday comeing in here and hanging with you cats, drooling over information, pics (blue screen & completed shots), debating rumors.
Remember the rumor that Yoda was going to Fart?
I remember going to supershadow's website (back when i was young and dumb) and reading the synopsis. He thought Padme was on naboo the whole time so Anakin made like 20 trips to naboo over the course of the movie
I remember seeing what we thought was going to be General Grevious, and it was drawing of a white looking darth vader
I remember rumors that vader's costume was going to look different, like gold, or still black but very reminisent of ralph mcquarries concept drawings.
I remember going to hyperspace and constantly m was pointing at a wall most of the time.
I remember when the first trailer (with dialog and everything, not teaser) first hit TV on fox after the OC, I immedietly came here and the part where it said Users browing this forum, it took like half the page there was so many people in here at once
I remember visiting the sites: Milleniumfalcon.com, Theforce.net, and here on constant daily basis
Mostly I just remember the general excitment about this film (for obvious reasons) before it was coming out. Like there was a buzz, and something was going to be really good about this one unlike the previous two that came before it
At any rate big shout out to the oldies:
Sith master x
and the many others who kept these forums alive posting links, and images, and vids
Its kinda funny to think that right now a bunch of 4, 5, and 6 year olds (perfect age by the way for these films ) are watching the star wars saga for the first time, and totally complete.
I wonder what they think of it?
To this day I rank them like this:
Empire strikes back
A new hope
Revenge of the Sith
Return of the Jedi
The phantom Menace
Attack of the clones
Well we'll see if the TV show is any good (if it ever see's the light of day)

I remember those days well. I remember sitting down watching an entire episode of "The OC" just to get the first glimpse of the ROTS trailer. I had never anticipated a movie more.
Alot of us would get on MSN and chat hours on end as we counted down.
I remember one user here "Scramba2000" who would give JP and I access to hyperspace. lol Good times, good times. It's great to see some of the veterans haven't gone anywhere.
By late 2005, the buzz started to die down. The Temple got shut down in Februrary "one of the most epic threaads ever concieved on the internet" and slowly things sort of lost that spark here to me the futher we went into 05. Alot of members started leaving. I would sort of disappear for a while, then come back, mainly because almost everything on here was a constant complaint about the PT. It got old after a while. Members like PVS or Schecter, whatever his name was, started ruining things for me here. I didn't find it that appealing anymore, but I would still check in from time to time. Then last Octobor, I don't know. I saw alot of good people where still here, and it brought back all the good times.
It would still be awesome if we had something solid to look forward to again, like news and info on the live action TV series. That would probably spark new interest and cool topics.
Re: ROTS is almost 5 years old, where did the time go?
WOW has it really been that long? Kinda sad. And LMFAO@ the mention of SuperShadow! What a tool that guy was. I LOVED Webdoc day and the BTH days usually ended up being some obscure thing. Like the carbon rod whatsa-ma-thingy.
Re: Re: ROTS is almost 5 years old, where did the time go?
BTH I remember those.
They'd come out, the anticipation had been building. "Oh my god oh my god its loading WHAT IS IT!!!!!!!!!!" ..............It's a door handle
I was like "really? well that was waste of my day"
others were like "oh my god that's sooo epic"
Coming here was so much fun, and still can be when something arises in the future. Summer 2004-November 2005 we'd had a lot to talk about, and a lot fun.
At any rate where a lot of you kids been hanging around these forums these days ? And how are your personal lives going. I don't really come to KMC much in general. After the release of of ROTS I some how, don't remember really, got really back into comic books, and was hanging in the comic forums for awhile.
But for the most part I got really sick of peoples crap. I'd go over to the sports forum and thats run by a bunch of controlling people. The video games forum, they might as well have a sign that says no playstation owners allowed
Though I'm sure when Star wars gets realesed on blu ray, and the tv show starts happening I'll be in here in regulary

PVS/Schecter was a quality poster.
There have been so many douches to pick from and you pick on the guy who we coordinated the big fake trailer easter egg rumour scam with. Shame on you.
Shit so much has changed in those five years... those were good times...just before the darktimes.
"Anyway, based on what we've seen, Van Zan, with five punches and a headbutt, couldn't even put down a malnourished dude (malnourished guy vigorous enough to be needed to be held back by 3 people). He's definitely not taking down McClane." - Lestov16
I got into an argument with Paul once, I think I blew things out of proportion a bit. His name popped into mind in terms of getting into arguments on here and disagreeing, but nonetheless, before the dark times, I had a lot of good times with him too.
Sometimes it's best to let the past be the past. We won't always share the same opinions, but in my case, I didn't have a right to jump down his back either.
I miss the days when we are all here and all got along with everyone. lol Generally that's how it is nowadays, and it's nice. I never came here to make enemies with anyone.
Its the internet people. I used to get so involved in all that crap and then I finally just went pffffft. Life is too short for that drama and message boards are going the way of the dinosaur anyway so really as far as Im concerned there are no "dark times" we can all be boneheads at one time or another but its the way people are all the time. I dont have time for it and I dont want to listen to it. SMX dont sweat it, PVS was a good poster but he had his jerk moments like we all do, myself included. Dont lose any sleep over silly internet personality clashes.
Well, I'm just saying, the way I went about disagreeing with an opinion of his, was merely my fault. I flew off the deep end over something, and it wasn't one of my prouder moments. No doubts, I won't lose any sleep over it, but I guess I should have overlooked those things and held on to the good times we all had back in the day.
We do have our bonehead moments. Heck, the first thread I ever started on KMC was asking everyone "Is supershadow real?" As a matter of fact, it was looking up info about the idiot that brought me to KMC in the first place. lol Not that I'm proud of that.
Anyway, I just prefer to leave PVS out of the loop. Shouldn't have dug up something from the past the serves little relevance to now. So my bad, I'm sorry. Go to the milk bar tonight...all drinks are on me.
You know, while we're at it, it would be cool if we all shared our funniest or best memories about being here at KMC. Sort of as a tribute to 04-05 when the the countdown to ROTS was at it's peak.
I have one that stands out. The old "Temple" thread, formally "Let it all hang out Star Wars Style" Do you guys remember "cornponious"? lol Well, in that thread, Queeq had went off about making DVD's of him and JP, and I being the "evil plotter," said that I would buy the DVD's from Queeq and then leak it afterward. So not long after, I get a PM from Cornponious asking me to show him the dvd. lol I had to explain to him that it was pretend and we were just role playing.
