Memories of the fantastic movies, TV shows, books and comics of my youth. Lots of clippings from my scrapbooks and articles from my magazine collection, as well as some vintage advertisements just for fun!

1978 Mark Hamill interview
From Rona Barrett's Hollywood Super Special: Winter 1978, comes a one-page interview with Mark Hamill, who was about to begin work on "The Empire Strikes Back." I have featured this magazine in an earlier post about "Battlestar Galactica."

It's interesting to go back and read stuff like this, from before we had ever seen the movie!
Born in the late 50's, a kid in the 60's, a teen in the 70's, I'm "forever-fourteen." Monsters, spooky stuff, sci-fi and Star Trek captured my imagination as a youth and the memories made will never fade. The profile photo symbolizes the efforts of my stepdad to rid me of my "childish" interests, as he called them; at which, not being a man of strong imagination, he failed.
