Oodgie is going out tonight for overpriced seafood with a friend of hers, leaving me and Cheeky to ponder the creative possibilities of Duplo. But once I scrub the crayon and dried blood off her arms and drop her into her crib, I'm forgoing the usual Xbox marathon and popping in a holiday classic: the Star Wars Holiday Special.
After writing an homage to it last year, I decided I NEEDED a copy for myself, and thanks to the magic of eBay that's exactly what I have. I've already watched Hardware Wars and the Donny & Marie Star Wars episode (also included), but I've been saving the pièce de résistance for the holiday season. It's been sitting on top of our DVD player since last January waiting for just the right moment, and that time is tonight.
I had hoped to share it with other retro-junkies like myself, but they all have stupid commitments to families and loved ones. Losers. Oodgie likes cheesy 70s commercials and Harvey Korman as much as the next person, but even she may not be able to stomach a full-hour of wookies preparing dinner. But since I must share this experience somehow, I'm proud to present the third in my series of holiday videos: the climactic Life Day song, as performed by Princess Leia.
I know you'll all be humming this tomorrow, and for that you'll
hate thank me. Enjoy, and wish me luck tonight....
