Now that is an entrance – plus I think the last costume is one of my all time favourites!
This has to be the best collection of images ever, and a great piece of social history documentation. People submit images of themselves – from 1977-1985 – with Star Wars; this being a costume, a toy, their childhood drawings or even curtains. Here are some of the best. Hot tip is that the backgrounds are as interested as the photographs.
Reminds me of making I’m Aware for video for Clinic - unquestionably Sesame Street is RAD.

A rare BP board game which chillingly warns of oil slicks with $1million clean up costs has come back to haunt them – one per cent of the amount now being spent EVERY DAY. The 1970s game ‘BP Offshore Oil Strike’ promises all the ”thrills of drilling” in the North Sea with the first person to make £120million dollars crowned the winner. But players are also warned of potential oil spills caused by rig damage in ‘hazard’ cards, which would cost ‘£1m dollars’ to clear up (via Nerdcore).
