Okay, so I was never a Star Wars fan. I never saw the movies <gasp> and I only know the characters from media references, etc. I mean, no one in my family really is a Star Wars fan. I honestly can’t think of any of my extended family that’s a huge fan either. So it was never really a thing.
At a con last year there was a shop that was doing 3D printing. They had the printer on display and I was admiring it because it was so freaking cool. They were making these Darth Vader / Buddha things and I was asking them questions and when I went to leave they gave me one. I was a little bit like “wait, what am I going to do with this?” But me + free stuff = love. So, yeah, I guess that is what tempted me to the dark side (free stuff).
I have now decided that I want to actually watch the movies, possibly because it’s May the 4th and I feel left out, possibly just to understand what the hype is about. Unfortunately, they aren’t on Netflix and I am not going to buy a movie I’ve never seen when pretty much all my friends probably own it. So who wants to lend them to me? I obviously want to start with the original trilogy (I know that much) so I’ll keep you all updated as I watch.
Also, shameless plug – my shop is now open and now through Monday you can get 10% off plus a bit of extra magic if you use code FOURTH10 🙂 thanks for your support!
May the fourth be with you.
