Today being the 30th anniversary of the release of George Lucas' Star Wars (1977), there's a lot going on. Namely, Edward Copeland is hosting the, you guessed it, Star Wars Blog-a-Thon. So, should you be in the mood, head on over there and read what is sure to be a plethora of wonderful, if somewhat nerdy, posts.
I'll leave you with just this one question: am I the only one who couldn't care less? And not just about the anniversary, but the whole Star Wars empire, from the movies to the action figures to the fan fiction to the costumes to the video games. I just don't see what the big fuss is all about.
Gun to my head, the first one is the only one of the original trilogy I could say with 90% certainty I've seen all the way through, but I remember little of it. It never struck me as being worth remembering, I guess.
When you've got an entirely contrarian opinion like this, there are 2 possible explainations: either you are very wrong or everyone else is. So, which is it?
 There is, of course, nothing wrong with nerdy posts. I have nothing against them. Nor do I have anything against nerds, but let's call a spade a spade, shall we?
