Star Wars not just a movie its a life style!!

Everyone in high school gets put into some sort of clique or subculture. Most of us then fit into new more adult subcultures as we age. For example the high school cheerleader who grows up to become the corporate big wig. Everywhere in the world there are stereotypes and classifications that people fit into. With the obvious exceptions of race and gender the Star Wars lifestyle is one of the largest and widespread subcultures in the world (maybe even galaxy).

There are few if any countries out there that don’t have some sort of near religious fallowing of the epic saga. Japan and the U.S of course being at the for front of fandom. Thanks to the efforts of the 501st there is not a comic-con any were that is or every will be absent a couple of Stormtropers. Even Las Vegas famous for it casinos and numerous chapels has many options for a Star Wars wedding. Were the happy couple cant be joined in matrimony by the dark lord of the Sith him self (Wookie best man optional).

Those of us with a long standing relationship with the galaxy far far away have a least heard of how Star Wars has continued to evolve and continue producing new media for us to enjoy. But lets take a moment to explain to every one else out there who has yet to fall in love with our wonderful culture. Star Wars ceased being just a movie about two days after the original movie (episode IV A New Hope) came into theaters in 1977. Instantly the film and all its memorabilia became classics. Ever since then star wars has lived on in many ways not just in theaters. Most resent activity has included one of the most anticipated video games in the history of gaming. The Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game; Star Wars The Old Republic. The media surrounding this game is massive stemming not only from fans of Star Wars but the fact that it is posed to replace current MMORPG overlord “World of War Craft” as the top online game.

So for those not of the Star Wars persuasion just remember next time some one close to you goes off on a hour long tirade about galactic sovereignty after the down fall of the republic, that it is so much more then just a 70’s movie. It is in fact a life style!!!

P.S heres a trailer for the up and coming Old Republic game. Enjoy!!!
