November’s ‘Chive Cast vintage pod is unlike any other! The recent news of Disney buying Lucasfilm and new Star Wars movies was too big for Steve and Skye to handle alone so we called in the big guns and created a roundtable of vintage Star Wars star collectors from the Star Wars Collectors Archive, Gus Lopez, Chris Georgoulias, Ron Salvatore and Tommy Garvey.
We talk about the potential ramifications of the new movies on the market, discuss what it means to become disneyfied and reminisce about the mid 1990s.

We also have a bi-nugget and a multi-factorial unloved section: candy heads, underoos and cake pans oh my!

I’ve been getting a lot of emails about party details. So, here you go…
-When: Thursday, August 23rd 2012 from 7:00-10:00
-Where: Salons 1&2 on the second floor of the Rosen Centre.
-Your passes: Bring them if I sent them to you. If you don’t, no swag, no party. If you bought them after the deadline bring your paypal receipt and one of our volunteers will give you your pass. If you can’t print it out, you can bring your identification and they will figure it out. (Please bring the paypal receipt)
-Your Swag: Your pass will have your ticket level punched out. Once you receive your stuff it will be punched again.
-What you should bring: CASH MONEY. There is a cash bar, and if we buy enough booze, we won’t be charged for the bartender. There will be some games that you can pay to play in order to win fabulous prizes. (Don’t worry, you can play them for free if you don’t mind not winning anything). There will be a raffle or two, maybe an auction. Of course, all the money will go to the Manatee.
-Food: There will be food, but not a ton of food. It is probably a good idea not to come extremely hungry. The more we spent on mini-hamburgers the less we help the sea cows. Its us or them…and those guys are huge! When you see the exclusives you will be amazed that there is any food for what little you spent.
It is going to be great!
