I woke up on Saturday morning to find myself tagged on Facebook by my friend Katie. She wanted every geek she knew to watch this video. So, still in bed, I pressed play.
And then I cried. And laughed! And thought again about how Star Wars is my ur-fandom. Here’s how I described it on Facebook when I reposted it:
Y’all know my one true fandom is Doctor Who? Well, Star Wars is the ur-text, the palimpsest that lies beneath the madman in the blue box, the mythology I was taught when I was three years old. I think I’m going to be a basket case when we finally get to see this movie!
How do you feel about Star Wars? Let us know in the comments!
