I’m sure fans of it have been left on cloud nine for quite a while now since its inception. But it was an epic of its time and will always be an epic. Yes I’m talking about Star Wars. Your Star Wars may be from looking into space at night and trying to count the millions of stars, or seeing stars from not looking where you are going and walking into a pole, or celebrities (stars) having a bitch-fight over some trivial matter. Then there is the Star Wars you don’t see but we have seen, in a galaxy far, far away. Of course you can always watch Star Wars on DVD…da.
I’m not going to get all soppy and Philosophical on you, but Star Wars relates to our lives in the world to some extent, doesn’t it (Oh come off it; weird creatures, abnormal machines and Darth Vadar?) I’m sure one of you has a hero or heroine in the movie. There is Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Obi-One Kenobi and CP30 and R2D2 for the men and, well, Princess Leia and Princess Padme Amidala for the women. I just realised there’s not many women in Star Wars. Of course this might distract the men from undertaking a Star Wars. But the women could bring peace to the empire and force don’t you think – ‘Anakin, I want you to give up fighting for me’. And I’m sure, all love struck and all, they’ll do it – ‘Where is everyone? So much for this Star Wars’. And they’d have to film a Star Wars movie somewhere else – ‘Where are you going? We have a movie to make here?’
I wonder what dating was like in Star Wars. I’m sure it was definitely online alright, and high-tech and stuff, but with the pace of the technological era in the space age. With this pace, it was probably speed dating, with a bit of ‘hi and by’ and ‘I’m in a rush, got to be somewhere, you have a number?’ Instead of a number it was probably a barcode like from one of the products at the supermarket – ‘what’s your name?’ ‘Just give me a scan and find out. I’ll scan (check) you later.’
Funny how it was called Star Wars, with the tale of two Star-Crossed lovers who look at star-signs for a living, like Anakin and Princes Padme Amidala and Princess Leia and Han Solo. A hero needs to have his chick man, like Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Thor and Captain America.
Have any of you ‘felt the power’ like Darth Vadar – ‘Yes, ok Anarchy, I get you’. ‘It’s not Anarchy, it’s Anakin. Remember I’m your Father Luke’. I’m sure we have had some powerful moments in our lives, like fluking an A+ on the Maths exam, when your balls dropped for the first time, your first biceps curl like Arnie (Arnold Schwartzenegger), your first day at work dressed in your $1000 Armani suit (whatever you do, don’t drop any sauce on this one baby) and the Guinness Book of Records kiss of kisses with your long-time sexy girlfriend.
Before you know it, you’ve landed a role in the next episode of Star Wars…good luck with that.
