I have started reading William Shakespeare's Star Wars by Ian Doescher. It would be a great idea for an activity at a sci-fi convention or meet-up. Do a table reading. It's much better done aloud. It would make a great Saturday Night Live skit, but I don't know if I'll still find it so amusing half-way through. I mean, we know what's gonna happen. The quirky fun will get old I'm afraid. But here's an excerpt for you.
C-3PO ---Thou shalt not label me
A mindless, brute philosopher! Nay, nay,
Thou overladen glob of grease, thou imp,
Thou rubbish bucket fit for scrap, thou blue
And silver pile of bantha dung! Now, come,
And get thee hence away lest someone sees.
R2-D2 Beep, meep, beep, squeak, beep, beep, beepm meep, beep, whee!
C3PO What secret mission? And what plans? What dost
Thou talk about? I'll surely not get in!
[Sound of blast.
I warrant I'll regret this. So say I!
[Exit C-3PO into escape pod.
So, here I am being lazy again. I hope you don't mind.
The Colony. Hmmm. Looks like another zombie movie. Yum. Yum. This one comes out in September. Why do they bury this information, so you have to dig for it? Just sayin'.
Gravity. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. I'm fans of both. :)
We have to wait six months for this one, but it looks great.
