I had two days packed with fun and a little work. Saturday night, I arrived late for what was dubbed Michaelpalooza at the home of some of my new friends I made over the past year through the Village Players. While some of the revelers played some games, the rest of us were treated to two hilarious… if not totally family-friendly spoofs of Star Wars.
The Robot Chicken (an animated series definitely best left to overnight television on Cartoon Network) episode was more of a spoof of the entire six films.
Family Guy actually had a previous spoof dealing with the original film. We watched the episode based upon The Empire Strikes Back. Several questions were raised by the episode. One being why Lando Calrissian wore Han Solo’s uniform st the end of the movie. And if you watch closely, he actually does. Also, a very obscure factoid about the movie Teen Wolf (one of my favorites growing up… please skip the horrendous sequel) was alluded to. One which obviously missed the censors but I have it on good authority actually exists. If you are curious, you will have to do your own research because I do like to run a family-friendly blog. I will lead you to the crowd in the stands of the final basketball game.
Today, Super Bowl Sunday, I had to work, go to play practice for our dinner theatre coming up NEXT WEEKEND folks, and then went to our annual game bash full of fun, awesome friends, lots of laughs, and a new addition that I will let taylhis share… but he is adorable. In case you did not know.. the Saints defeated the Colts 31-17. Thoughts on the game? The ads? Da Who? Will we ever get beyond the Boobygate scandal and have quit having grandpa and company perform… although the drummer looked like he was not even thought of in the Pinball Wizard’s heyday?
