sc 74 “A Long Time Ago…”

Today Toppie celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the incredible “Empire Strikes Back,” — the best Star Wars of them all — by going back in time to recall what was going on in the world, as well as recapping some details of his own life all those years ago in the summer of 1980.

    Thanks for the ’80 nostalgia. As it turns out, video really did kill the radio star.

    The Empire Strikes Back has always been my favorite Star Wars movie. I love the somber tone and mournful, longing music. Also the scene of Luke hanging upside down made my 14-year-old heart stop. Maybe it was my age, but everything about the movie seemed very real to me.

    I don’t have my Empire Strikes Back glass from Burger King anymore but I have the DVD and have to bust it out.


Lay it on me bay-bee...
