Extra notes: Solo. See it. See it. See it. It's one glorious two-plus-hour-long middle finger, in essence, into George Lucas' face and his decision to change a scene in the original film because it disagreed with his limping and contradictory life philosophy. If you're a fan of Star Wars, you know what scene I'm talking about. If you don't, don't sweat it. The film is fabulous. We're going back next Friday to watch it again.

I'm going to go outside in a few minutes here and do some gardening. It's Memorial Day Weekend here in the US (a confusingly titled holiday, I grant you), which means Americans are going to be out in droves drinking, camping, trashing God's creation, and generally doing everything except consider the actual importance of the holiday. In this day and age, that's downright dangerous.

We're getting to the end of The Partridge Family. We're midway through the final season. I may have told you, I may not have, that I'm going to write my own version of The Partridge Family, one much grittier, and set today, not nearly half a century ago. I'm no expert in music, but I think I can still do justice to the story, and the characters too. I should be starting on it before the end of the year.

Out to garden now. Talk at y'all Monday.
