Star Wars Confession

All the hype about Star Wars this week, what with the release of the trilogy on DVD, has left me rather curious. That brings me to my Star Wars confession:

I have never seen any of the three original movies.

(do you hear that? thats the sound of the SW junkies fainting at my confession. we'll just give them a moment to gether themselves back up.)

I saw Episode 2 when I was nine months pregnant. I enjoyed it, and thought I might like Episode 3. Did that one ever come out? *blushing* I know nothing of the Star Wars saga.

And actually, remember a few years back when they re-released the original movies in theaters? We went to see the second one, I think, with friends, but I fell asleep about 10 minutes in. It was a midnight show, and I had just gotten off a 16 hour shift at the emergency clinic.

Theres my confession. Whew! So much easier not to pretend I know what the hell you guys are talking about! lol

I can't believe that there is any American who has not seen the Trilogy. Stranger things have happened though.

GW, I am shocked, shocked I say. Here I thought you were prefectly well rounded and normal, now I see there is only one thing lacking from pure perfection. You must get your hands on the first three movies (ep.4-6) and watch them soon. Then I challenge you to write an erotic story staring Han and Leia!

By the way, Star Wars Episode III, Revenge of the Sith, will be released in May 2005.

You're doing just fine girl. I saw the first one and it bored me to tears. No way I'm gonna get caught wasting time on any others.

I thought there was something weird about you. You know most of what I know about sex I learned be watching Star Wars. I'd get more into the details, but instead you should watch them and guess what I learned.

I'll give you a hint: Wookies, Yoda and Darth Vader's helmet. yahoo!

Gasp. I will never read your blog again.


Actually, I probably will. But I can't imagine life without being able to recite the original trilogy line-by-line. What would I do with all that space in my head?

Star Wars IV,V and VI are better than I and II so far, so are worth watching.

For a shorter consise version of Star Wars IV, look at Thumb Wars...

GW...I was just stopping by to say Hi and thank you for your excellent site....but couldn't believe what I just read...literally, my jaw dropped open and was closing as I read the line about the SW geeks picking themselves back up again. You are too funny.
I guess your questions were more or less answered so far...the original 3 are definitely better....and just the other day (tuesday) a new computer game was released: Star Wars: Battlefront. It lets you play in the armies that have appeared in the various movies....it is incredibly fun--you play online vs. other ppl. Yay Xbox!!

GW,
I am about your age and must say I have never seen any of them either. I was young when they first came out and my brother liked them but I refused to watch any of them because I thought they "boy movies". Now as an adult I have just never gotten around to seeing them and I don't plan on it because I am one of the few people that can still say I haven't seen them. I wouldn't want to lose a title like that!! BTW, I love your site!

I would be remiss in my manly duties if I did not say something here..... Well, GW, no one is perfect, I guess. I can remember as a kid, sitting in lawn chairs with my brother, in line outside the mall movie theaters awaiting tickets to go on sale, with a cooler full of drinks and a bag of snacks. Every hour or so, our parents would come by to check on us to see how are progress in the line was. It was grueling, at the time. Looking back on it, it is one of the coolest childhood memories I have. Our parents trusting us enough to 1) not kill each other when left alone together, 2) leave us by ourselves in the mall for an extended period of time alone, and 3) See #1. It is one of the first times I can remember them allowing us to be "independent" and sit there. All the hype and waiting for the movies to open was well worth it. There, I said it - I am a closet Sci Fi freak of sorts, I love Star Wars. I can recite lines verbatim, have long disertations about the plot and characters... yup, every man, woman and child should see these movies. Now guys, back me on this - as young men or boys... who didn't get an instant woody when you saw Leia on that barge With Jabba in that outfit??? Admit it! You did! Ahhhhh... a young boys fantasies.... :)

Ahh, Rich Xbox is T3H SH1ZN1T!!11 But mine is broken down, and I've had too many projects and homework to do, and my spare time I try to play soccer and keep my blog running. Nevertheless, since my Xbox already is like 3 years old, I'll take it to the flea market and have it fixed there for a lot less than what they charge on Tech Support for the box (they charge $100, I'll only replace the DVD reader so it'll be around $50).

Thanks to Patrick, Mike and dangerouspenguin for the first laugh of the night... That reminds me it's friday night and I'm not drinkin'!!! WTF?

Nevertheless, I must differ with standing naked's opinion! It's not a bad thing... as a matter of fact, it is because of Star Wars, that some bad things have happened. I must point you to what this site pointed out.

I'll agree with Dick and Mr. B... episodes I and II suck. They lack something... perhaps we might just accept that there are 78 reasons to hate Star Wars Episode I (#7 I agree!) and also 64 reasons to hate Star Wars Episode II.

Ok, that makes up for the fact that I didn't post anything on my blog since thursday on the early morning.

Mr. B: Do you have the Batman parody and Blair Thumb too? They rock!I hoped I didn't leave any loose ends. I'm tired now and my friends will be any minute now, so I'm off to a party!

Carrie Fisher all those years back.
And now Natalie Portman.

HOTTIES! (Except for Carrie's hair. wtf were they thinking with those doggone buns on the sides of her noggin?)

I'm sorry to say this but Jar-Jar Binks isn't in Star Wars IV,V and VI. I can only assume (hope like hell) that he must get killed in III and I hope they drag it out for like 3/4 of the film. The rest they can fill up with spaceships flying around shooting stuff, Putchew!Putchew! Boom! (those were suppose to be laser sounds followed by an explosion).

Absolutely ;-).

I think that the 'buns' are in fact a disguised extra sensory radar so that she can detect her father from light years away. In the same way that Captain Janeway could detect when her coffee was ready with her 'bun'. Hey, perhaps they could have a 'bun' fight - Bun Wars - To boldly go where no Bun has gone before - May the Bun be with you - Bun Trek - The Buntrix - The needs of the Bun outweigh the needs of the many - Mr Bunderson - Bunity - The Bunective -> The Bung - Its a Bun Jim but not as we know it - Perform a level 4 Bunostic - The Bunstar - The Bun Strikes Back and Return Of The Bun.

Carrie Fisher's ... umm ... southern buns were some eye-candy though! Put her on a cracker and snack her!

Coming from someone that is your age GW, I can understand why you havent seen it. But, you also have to consider that at the time they were released to the movie theatres there really wasnt much like them. They were pretty much the beginning of that genre. Now, with special effects that we have, the trilogy would be boring to most people. The original just came a long at a time when nothing like that existed. There had been some sci fi type movies sure, but Star Wars just kind of had it all. Saturday matinee, sci fi, comedy. It was just the beginning of a genre so to speak.
