It’s time for the Star Wars that started it all: Episode IV, A New Hope. Highlights: we discuss the female fascination with the man in black, argue the meaning of “high maintenance,” notice (yet again) that Leia is smokin’ hot, talk droid knowledge and their interaction with Vader in the original trilogy, comment on Ben’s lie of omission, bemoan the Han/Greedo-shoot-at-same-time DVD (but love the sound), pontificate on Tatooine fashion, love on Alec’s trend-setting Jedi appearance, and watch Ani crank on that TIE’s control knob like he’s makin’ butter.
My dad has an interesting story, I never tire of hearing.
Back in the 70’s he was a phone installer for Pac Bell. He gets sent on a job in down town San Rafael for some “crazed hippies”. There were actually several store fronts that had been joined by tearing down the walls to accommodate a huge trench thing. He didn’t know the significance of what he saw at the time, but the rest, as they say, is history.
Ha ha, after seeing the cantina scene, he said those guys must wake up at night screaming.
Only 20 minutes in but I have to correct Shawn; it’s no moon, that’s a space station.
Hey guys, the Caprica trailer is out. It looks kind of average.
haha I got my birthday greeting!
OMG…I loved the awkward conversation about Leia being uppity. Guys, I’m sorry but Leia is not high maintenance. Luke though yes, what with all that Skywalker whining.
About clothing in the dessert. I used to live in West Texas. I was cooler in long pants that would wick away the sweat than in shorts. The people at Fort Concho Museum said that the soldiers would wear cotton long underwear with wool uniforms the 2 layers would create a personal evaporate cooler. They wore authentic reproduced uniforms and said they were fairly cool.
