And while the Force is with us...

... congratulations to George Lucas for an idea just so crazy, it has sustained itself for 30 years, made him a zillionaire fifty times over, and has taken over my son's brain. And probably millions of other people's children's brains over the years.

Mind you, it seems like a lot of people have jumped on the gravy speeder. All those comics, books, toys, costumes, tshirts... sheesh, the opportunities are endless. And the links! I just read of a man who does a one-man Star Wars show. God, I live with one of those, complete with all the sounds and effects.

Yes, my master...

When Bumblebee plays like this, he's thinking of being a Sith. I'm thinking of George, rolling in all that money. May the purse be with you. And also with you.

A light sabre, I used to be a dab hand with a light sabre. Two boys equally matched always wanted someone they could beat, me. In the days before I had C3PO's knees I could whirl and twirl with grace. I love that Samuel Jackson wanted a light sabre but with a difference so George let him have a purple one.

He looks badass, and cute but badass.

Cute lad.
Certainly nicer to obsess about being a Sith, than , say, one of the Bra Boys, or some manky skater.
And wearing all their syndicated clothing.
Unfortunately, I seem to send all my money in THAT direction.
