It’s six days past Thor’s Day and here I am without a make-up post.
The week has been a good one, although busy.
Got to spend time with friends and hang with some of the greatest people of my community, which in itself is a wonderful thing.
I did watch the most recent trailer of the Star Wars movie, and again, not too impressed. I think there’s a threshold of excitement where one can be. It’s being so excited about something, and then an update or an extra aspect of that something comes out, and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t be more excited. That’s how I feel about Star Wars.
We know what’s going to happen, right? I mean, we all know (if we don’t, I’m going to call it) that all the older generation gets killed. If not all of them, some of them.
We’re going to witness the death of all or some of the original heroes (Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, or Leia). One or all of them are going to die. It’s the passing of the torch.
Well, I’m sorry, that’s not something I’m interested in. Call me part of the Original Band of Rebels. It’s the story I was a part of – my story. No, I don’t think I’m expressing disinterest in the new movie because I am afraid of change….well, yes, that’s probably part of it, now that I think about it. But more so because that ship has sailed for me.
I don’t know.
Why is it that every trailer I have seen just doesn’t excite me. They excite my friends. They excite my colleagues. They don’t excite me. Why?
To me they just seem stupid. I don’t know; maybe I’m just not a movie guy. I mean, I’m not a movie guy; that’s just not my thing. Some of my friends are really into movies. Yes, some of them I love (The Big Lebowski), but I’m just not into it.
So, at present, LW has told me he will go and watch the movie and tell me if it’s any good.
At present, I’m just sort of meh.
P.S., and I’ve asked this before, why are the new light sabers have two small light-sabery wings by the hilt? Why!?
