The first one is something that I think will be really cool. I was approached on my Facebook wall (yes, I still call it my wall and not timeline) by the ultra funny and quickly becoming famous Mod Mom Beyond IndieDom about this little project that I have seen floating in the blogosphere called Theme Thursday. She said that they needed a Dad's point of view on the themes that come up for each Thursday and you know me, if it means building my blog, I'm all for it, I like new readers and commentators, plus it gives me a topic to go off on. I sent an email off to Jenn at Something Clever 2.0 and mentioned I was invited by Mod Mom and that I was interested in participating in Theme Thursdays, she responded back and explained how things worked.
Theme Thursday happens each week on...Thursday, clever huh? The participants email suggestions for the theme to each other and once a theme is chosen, we write about it for the following Thursday. The posts are to be scheduled to go live at 0900 hours EST or 9:00 AM EST, I just like saying it the military way. At the end of each post we pimp out the other participants to our readers. Jenn quickly sent out an email to all of the other participants
I find Leia way more attractive (especially in the slave outfit) than Han, Luke or even Lando for that matter. I don't find the Ewoks cute and cuddly, I look at them as an intricate part of Episode VI and force to be reckoned with. I don't let the Minions admire Jar Jar Binks, I simply explain that he played a very big role in the creation of the Empire.
I supposed if you were to use the original meaning of the word gay it would mean I am "joyful", "carefree" or "bright and showy" about Star Wars, which, in this case is true. I do not hide the fact that Star Wars is a part of my life and that I am not just a fly by night fanboy who has only watched the movies, I have delved into the expanded universe, I have read the books, played the video games, and have even watched the Christmas special from beginning to end. Not many people can say they have done that. My entire Lego collection is nothing but Star Wars creations, I have a lightsaber signed by Darth Vader, not David Prowse but Darth Vader and I get excited to see that George Lucas had a hand in just about every movie made, whether it is with Skywalker Sound or Industrial Light and Magic.
I am trying to learn Mandoa (the language of the Mandalore) and three out of five tattoos I have are of Star Wars origin. I love everything Star Wars...
|What a great pick up line!|
|Star Wars is real, Star Trek is fiction.|
|Get it straight!|
|Sorry, we can't be seen together.|
|Everyone knows how it appeared in theaters!|
|This is me and the Trophy.|
|I'm not that aggressive, but he is pretty annoying.|
|Now begone with you.|
Oh and to get the ball rolling, go check out my counterparts in the Theme Thursday, no this isn't my post for it obviously but you can get acquainted with the ladies who hunted me down.
