WONKA: We are the music-makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.

from Ode
by Arthur O’Shaughnessy [1844-1881]

We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.

With wonderful deathless ditties
We build up the world’s great cities,
And out of a fabulous story
We fashion an empire’s glory:
One man with a dream, at pleasure,
Shall go forth and conquer a crown;
And three with a new song’s measure
Can trample an empire down.

We, in the ages lying
In the buried past of the earth,
Built Nineveh with our sighing,
And Babel itself with our mirth;
And o’erthrew them with prophesying
To the old of the new world’s worth;
For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.

If anyone has an extra bed for the con, I have a friend who is trying to get down to San Diego. She has her passes and all, just needs a place to crash.

Please let me know and I’ll pass along all of her information.

thanks in advance!!!

Been away so long I hardly knew the place...

I’m watching Star Wars (the original) with a 7 year old who only speaks German...

Very interesting to see that sense of wonder again!

The retro geek in me is rejoicing...

I just went to Burger King and picked up a set of the Star Trek Glasses.

How long has it been since a fast food chain had some really cool collectibles for the adults? I’m SO in geek heaven at the moment.

I just checked...

“It’s twue... it’s twue!”

This is JUST Star Wars. None of this New Hope BS!

And there is NO second blast. Greedo falls like a puppet dictator and Solo looks smug as a straight man on Broadway.

I know what I’m going to be watching in the next few days...

DVD joy

So I just got the original Star Wars Trilogy, special edition, on DVD at Zia for 26 bucks.

As I’m looking at the discs, it says there’s a second disk with each one, containing the “original” release of the film.

Does this mean I actually have, on DVD, a film called “Star Wars” where Solo shoots first?

You bet yer ass I’m popping it in the machine and finding out!

yup...

Sure I was gonna post more often...

Really, I intended to. I swear.

You Are OMG



You're the type of person who's always shocked by the internet.

Whether it's crazy news or a wild picture, you're always saying "Oh my god"!



The only thing better than being shocked is shocking your friends. You're quite good at that too.

And while you still allow yourself to be shocked, you secretly love it. You enjoy drama and gossip.
