You've been waiting approximately forever for this one and it's well worth the wait! I let the conversation flow much more conversationally this time around because I thought David's story benefited from it. Things that might ordinarily become bonus material really ARE a part of his Star Wars Story. It's massively-entertaining, it's occasionally emotional. Ladies and gentlemen, this is part one of David Collins's Star Wars Story.

David Collins is a voice actor, composer, music editor and host. He’s done voice work for both The Force Awakens and Rogue One as well as being a stage host for Star Wars Celebration. You can find him on Twitter @davidwcollins. To tell your Star Wars story, please send your contact information to story@mystarwarsstory.com and please be patient with me. This is a part-time endeavor and there is a LONG line of people who wish to be on the program.

I’d also like to take a moment to mention that I don’t plan on attempting to monetize My Star Wars Story, but If you’d like to contribute to a similar but much bigger operation—I say similar because we both have a mission of the preservation of Star Wars history—please give whatever you can to Rancho Obi-Wan. Go to Rancho Obi Wan .org and become a member today.

Thank you for listening to My Star Wars Story and thank you for being a part of Generation Star Wars.

I knew I wouldn't be able to get David W. Collins Part 1 finished in time for the big anniversary today, so I gathered some friends who I know went to see Star Wars in 1977, and we went to dinner and swapped tales. Though we're friends now, we didn't know each other back then, so the stories were fun and new for each of us.

Beware: Formats were made to be broken and we're breaking it this episode. Ryan Shaw, the guest from Episode 1 of MSWS, was raised in Miami and had a big city experience seeing Star Wars for the first time.

 

Thomas Merritt, who will be featured on a future episode of MSWS, saw Star Wars the second week it was in our home town of Brunswick and you won't BELIEVE what happened!

 

I, Scott Ryfun (the guest on MSWS Episode 100), was a Star Wars fan before I ever even saw it by virtue of the fact that my brother had brought home a book about it from school. But when I saw it for the first time... Hoo boy.

Alexander Gates currently lives in Honolulu, Hawaii doing a non-Star Wars related job, but is always ready to join the Lucasfilm family at a moment's notice. He's an avid podcast listener and wouldn't mind being on more. Outside of the Wars, he enjoys collecting beers on Untappd with his fellow Star Wars friend John, reviewing restaurants on Yelp with his girlfriend Kristine, and taking their dog Bagle [sounds like the breakfast food] for runs along the beach.
 
He's active on social media, so feel free to say aloha:

Laurie Goode's story is limited to his time on Episode IV, and the convention circuit, not exactly enough material for a full episode, so voila! The first MSWS Minisode! For those of you who don't know, Laurie Goode played a stormtrooper in Episode IV back in 1976. He also just happens to have banged his head on a door while filming a scene.  Sound familiar?  It should! Laurie's even written a song about it, called "Who Was the Stormtrooper Who Banged His Head", available in the iTunes store.

Also, I've been doing this podcast completely at my own expense for a year and  a half now, and I've decided I want something for it. No, I don't want money. The best I'll get is a t-shirt.

And did I mention it's tax deductible?  It sure is!  Look, I'm not asking you to do anything I haven't done myself. Please go and become a member of Rancho Obi-Wan today by going to Ranchoobiwan.org and registering. And if you don't want me to get the t-shirt, that's fine.  Please become a member anyway. You won't regret it.

Get ready for this one! One of the things that interests people is all the places people's Star Wars stories are the same and where they're different.  Riley Blanton's story is about as different a Star Wars Story as we've ever heard. Like last episode's Justin Bolger, Riley was raised overseas, but Riley lived in Pakistan.It's strange, it's funny, it's touching!  It's Riley Blanton's Star Wars Story!

John Jackson Miller is the author of the recent Star Wars novel A New Dawn--the behind the scenes essay for which you can find at http://www.farawaypress.com/fiction/books/swanewdawn.html--as well as the recent Star Trek The Next Generation novel Takedown and his original work Overdraft: The Orion Offensive. He also has a story in an upcoming issue of Star Wars Insider.  You can find John Jackson Miller’s comics history research at http://comichron.com . Several sections of my discussion with John Jackson Miller strayed a bit from his Star Wars Story, so they were removed.  However, as some of them were quite informative and entertaining, several of them can be found as bonus material at the end of this program.

Recorded live on stage at the Ritz Theatre in beautiful downtown Brunswick, GA, It's a Wonderful Life is a holiday classic for the ages.  Adapted for radio and featuring a cast of talented actors and sound effect techniscians, let one of the best-loved Christmas stories of all-time, unfold right before your ears!

 

And yes, that's me as George Bailey/Augustus Slattery.  Jim Jinkins, the guy who created Disney's Doug and PB&J Otter? He's Clarence.  And Bryan Thompson, former Brunswick, GA, mayor and big winner on Deal or No Deal as Joseph and Mr. Potter.

 

I know it's not Star Wars, but it's one of the many things I've been working on over the last several months, and one of the big reasons MSWS has been a monthly to this point, so enjoy!

And Merry Christmas to you all!

David Michelinie is the Creator of Venom and Shira Brie, among many other famous and infamous comics characters.  His creation The Bozz Chronicles will soon be reissued in a new collected edition and is currently available for pre-order. During the course of the discussion with David Michelinie, I was prone to the occasional geek-out that wasn’t germane to the conversation at hand.  I will be sharing some of those moments at the end of this podcast as bonus material.
