Grabbed this one out of my local PR source. So...who here is lining up to get the DVD Trilogy (and the only good Star Wars movies IMHO), tonight? I know I'm not. I have better things to do.

You know, I would, as I plan to buy it at best buy anyways (got a $15 gift card back from when I bought spiderman2), but that's a really short list of locations, and all are hell and gone from me.

Aw fudge...a trivia contest for the 3 big winners?  I was thinking about going to Richfield (it's only 5 miles away) thinking it would be a "put your name in the hat" thing...but now I'll just sit and watch the Vikings on Monday Night Football and not bother lining up.

The 3 big prizes are pretty interesting.  You get an Xbox, Trilogy DVD, Battlefront on Xbox and the main person gets a replica Darth Vader lightsabre or something like that.  They are different versions of Xboxes too.  The top one is an Advance HD Xbox (which I am guessing includes some games) and the other 2 are regular Xboxes or something.  I may know my Star Wars, but there is no way I could stand up to anyone that practically lives in the Star Wars universe and knows everything about it.

I think the last time I did a midnight thing was for the release of one of the Beatles Anthologies and I think a big game came out the same day.  You got something pretty cool for free, but I forget what it was.

Nope. Not gonna do it. Wouldn't be prudent at this... juncture!

Besides, I vowed that until the below is proven to be true, I'm not watching them:
