watching star wars

On the right, your faithful commentator. On the left, my girlfriend's son, Mohammad.

On the tube: Star Wars (George Lucas, 1977) on laserdisc. The plot: too complex for this guy, although he had no trouble with Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones. Seems to prefer the cartoons. All-time favorite song, from which he can quote at will: "I'll Make a Man Out of You". Looney Tunes are perrrrfect.

Yes, that's a cast on his arm. From an injury incurred during a performance of "Shark Dance Number 1" (don't ask, I wasn't there).

Top of frame, center, more or less hidden: an oil painting by my father, Jim Christley.
