Firstly sorry for the lack of posts recently but yet again it's the fault of Mr G Lucas
esq of Skywalker Ranch California. Yet again there's a Star Wars related game that captures my attention. For those of you that haven't played Lego Star Wars 2 yet do so. I love the way it's funny to me as an (almost) adult as well as to children. My Nephew , who's a Star Wars nut like me, was wittering down the phone to me re it's merits the other day. I may have to get the full game as I've been playing the demo to death. I'm warming to the idea of buying the original movies on DVD even though I've bought them in every single release since the eighties but even my Nephew, who is seven, says that the original the films are the best (in fact he listed all in order of preference which even if I could remember I won't bore you with here). Funny how he never mentions Jar Jar Binks? Although he loves the Sith characters which is rather worrying. I think he's lucky having all the Darth Vader equipment like a lightsaber and voice changing mask and the dress up suit. When I were a lad (cue Hovis music) back in the dark ages if I wanted to play at being Obi Wan 'Ben' Kenobi I had to wear my dad's brown dressing gown and blue broom handle off the soft brush from the garage going voom voom as I swung the handle about. Luckily we had a rather large long haired alsation was often drafted in as Chewbacca and our golden labrador who was often C3PO and my rather small and noisy sister was often R2D2. Unfortunately I don't remember Chewie sleeping or C3PO licking his genitals halfway through the attack on the Death Star. Although I could be wrong as I went to the toilet halfway through the original movie. Nor was Luke's X Wing hidden behind the shed when it was bust so that his parents didn't find out. Although in my defence that wheelbarrow had served all concerned very
well, it had been every car from every cop/spy show all from 1978-1984 along with
accompanied theme tune with my sister as a passenger and chased by the aforementioned mentalist dogs. How I never knocked my sister's teeth out whilst jumping over great jumps singing "dan der der derder der der der dah", ie the car horn from Dukes of Hazard.
Nowadays whilst bored at work (almost constantly) I have to make do with the above ensemble. Photo taken by an equally bored colleague, (our resident Charlie Dimmock lookalike), Lee.
I'm rambling here obviously as I'm trying not to veer onto politics as my ire has been raised on several nights' watching the news. I must stop trying to keep a breast I'd much rather keep two ... but I don't think she's interested.
Anyway tonight's music is a compilation of Reggae standards from the vaults of Trojan. I've only got Volumes 3 and 4 so if anyone has 1 & 2 let me know. Also I've reupped Dance Craze what I ripped from an old cassette I had. Enjoy
