This just in from the ForceCast.net blog (http://forcecast.net/story/blog/ForceCast_To_Celebrate_3_Year_Anniversary_Septembe r_2_2009_125841.asp)!

Hard to believe that it's been nearly three years since we rebooted the official podcast of TheForce.net and Rebelscum.com and turned it into The ForceCast. While we haven't been ones to celebrate our own milestones much, we think that three years is cause for some hooplah and we want you there!

The ForceCast's Three Year Anniversary Special is scheduled for live broadcast on Wednesday, September 2nd at 8 PM ET. Now here's the best part: we're using it as an excuse to give you prizes!

What prizes you ask? How about a Lieutenant Renz mini-bust exclusive from Rebelscum.com or a Ralph McQuarrie Tribute Poster signed by Laurence Noble from RalphMcQuarrie.com? Maybe an autographed Fanboys DVD from Kyle Newman or a Force Among Us T-shirt/DVD prize pack from Cris Macht? And rumor has it we might even have an autographed Mark Hamill photo from Official Pix. Okay, that's not exactly a rumor--it's confirmed!

It's easy to enter. Just send an email to forcecast@forcecast.net, subject line: ANNIVERSARY SHOW - GIVEAWAY. Make sure to include your mailing address in case you're a winner. That's it! We'll be drawing names at random throughout the show. And don't worry, you don't have to be listening live to win. But it would make winning that much cooler, wouldn't it? Just get your email in between now and the stroke of midnight on September 2 to be eligible.

We're also asking that you leave a voicemail for us at (330)754-05FC with some of your favorite ForceCast memories over the years for possible play on the show.

So, get your emails and voicemails in and remember to make your plans to be listening live Wednesday, September 2nd at 8 PM ET as we celebrate three years of the best Star Wars news and commentary in the galaxy!

Sounds like an opportunity that just can't be missed!

And the email is away. Hopefully now that school is starting and I have Wednesday nights off again I'll be able to kind of rejoin the FC community.

I have to work tonight. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

But I'm hoping the Avid (editing suite) I'm on has the internet - then I'll listen and work. Then maybe I can chat as well... and then not get a thing done.

We'll see - it's the Anniversary Show for crying out loud!

Just called in for the very first time and left a voicemail for the 3 year anniversary! I hope it does get played on air, that would be awesome!http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Thanks Jason, Jimmy and EVERYONE else involved with the Force-Cast for making it what it is today, THE BEST STAR WARS PODCAST IN THE GALAXY! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Hey everyone, I just wanted to stop by and congratualate the ForceCast on their 3 Year Anniversary! Unfortunately I haven't been able to participate in the live chat or the forums a lot lately, but being in the chat tonight reminded me of just how great the ForceCast fan community is. It's hard to believe how long it's been since I started listening to the show and then participating in the forums. Some of my fondest fandom memories have come from interacting with other ForceCast fans from across the globe here on this very forum. Listening to the ForceCast has expanded my fandom by leaps and bounds and I am forever grateful to the great people behind the show for that.

So, here's to 3 amazing years of the ForceCast and to many more in the future...

Last night's show was, in my mind, the best episode so far. Jason, Pete, and Jimmy are a fantastic team. Pete had me in stitches the whole time. It was so much fun to look back on the past three years of the best podcast on the Internet.

Yeah great show guys, although my feed kept dropping out and having to leave half way through to get my tattoo started, I'm looking forward to hearing the complete Ep once it's up for D/L. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

You at least heard that (by some miracle) you won a prize? That note you wrote choked me up, I must say. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

I did Jay but all I heard was Pete say something about the email being special (or soething like that) and "it was sent by Shane or as he's known on the forums Jade..." droped out, lol.
But everyone on the chat said congrats etc, I'm just glad it's going to a great cause.

OMG! So I'm still finishing up the 3 hour 3 year celebration anniversary episode with my headphones plugged in and at 2:39:05 I hear Jason say "How about JediMike, jedimike calling in saying thanks for 3 years."

I can't believe it, my first voice mail was aired on the show and its such an AWESOME feeling! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Thanks a lot Jason, Jimmy, Pete and company! You guys rock!
