40 years ago Today this film changed cinema forever. Although Jaws is credited a the first Blockbuster, Star Wars was the first Pop Culture Juggernaut. No film before it effected Pop Culture like Star Wars did. It Sold toys, food clothes. It change kids imagination, I mean before you could buy a Lightsaber at Target in the 80' a flashlight was your Lightsaber! For all you Star Wars haters out there just remember this with out Star Was most of the movies you love probably wouldn't of been made cause with out Star Wars there is no Industrial Light and Magic. And without ILM well a lot of special effects wouldn't of been posible. #EightMonthsBeforeIWasBorn#StarWarsIs40#May25#1977#StarWars
I don't know when the word "Union" became a four letter word in this country but it isn't. It should represent what makes America the greatest country on Earth. The current President's campaign slogan was "Make America Great Again". Well the US was the greatest when the Unions were the strongest. The US middle class was at its best. My sister @roxy_pad and her Brothers and Sisters had to stand up for what's FAIR today and I couldn't be more proud. You can't let corporate greed get away with not giving its ground level employees the backbone to any company a fair deal. The song attached is "The Union Song" from a Live Performance by @tommorello at the Troubadour in 2004 which I attended when the LA Grocery Workers were on strike which I was part of. #cwa#CWAonStrikeAgainstATT#Union#UnionStrong#TheUnionSong#AxisOfJustice#AllWeWantIsAFairContract#UnionFamily#UFCW324#UFCWwithCWA
20 years goes by in an instant. My life is very much different then than it is now. People in my life then are no longer in it and there are People in my life now that I want to keep around till my last breath. The world is different too well maybe even simpler then. With that I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from the late John Hughes via Ferris Bueller "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
