Star Wars-ian doings

Blech, I'm sick. Please, antibiotics, kick in ASAP.

In other news...

* I've been invited to be a guest on NPR's "On Point" (11am-noon Eastern) on Friday. We'll be talking -- what else? -- Star Wars. I'm looking forward to it.

* My most recent "Looking Back on Genre History" segment is up here on Episode 415 of StarShipSofa. It's the second of a two-part look into the science fictional and historical inspirations behind the Jedi of Star Wars. (Part 1 is here.) If you listen, I hope you enjoy!

Fantastic news! I'll have to make a point of listening in. Of course, it's all Star Wars right now. :-)

Noooooooooooooo! You can't be sick! It's Star Wars week!

I am hiding from the spoilers/reviews until I can figure out where and when I'm able to go. I cannot handle crowds. I need to give it a few days or even a week... even though it kills me to do so!

I KNOW! Worst timing ever, right? I'm just trying to "Jedi up" and hang in there. ;)

I know exactly what you mean about crowds. I'm sure I'm going to want to do multiple viewings, but at least some of those will have to wait until everyone else is in school or at work and I can slip into some quiet matinees.

And good for you for avoiding spoilers! (FYI, if/when I do post anything about my first viewing, it will be spoiler free.)

When you go see The Force Awakens, print out and take along a copy of this.

Another excellent segment of "Looking Back on Genre History"! Sorry so late commenting on it, but it definitely enhanced my experience of the latest SW movie. Again, it's just too bad we can't have transcripts of these segments -- there's so much in each & every one.
