Rob Machold, drummer/biologist, is very good at keeping an eye on Craigslist and forwarding me ads he thinks are interesting.

He sent this one this morning:

We are making a documentary about the world of Star Wars fans and are looking for a band that has written a song about something from the Star Wars universe, to film a performance for the movie. Get in touch if this is you.

Is this us? You better believe it.

Regular readers know that one of the songs The Noodle performed at Tedstock was "Princess of Alderaan", a ditty about Han Solo, Princess Leia, and R2-D2. Originally improvised live in studio a few years back (with Happy Boy), it underwent a facelift for the 'Stock performance and got a second verse.

I've sent the filmmakers emails, links to Mikedot's photos of us performing the tune at the 'Stock, and offered to use my X-Wing and Millenium Falcon toys to liven things up for their film. If you're making a film about Star Wars fans you're probably looking for some nerdiness - I'm confident we can deliver.

Stay tuned.

Did you send thme a audio file (note I did not say MP3)?

I did not, as I do not have one.

There isn't one on the Smoke and Mirrors Podblaze. Was there ever?

I guess I'll send them an m4a and mp3 tonight.

I could send them a link to "JanHamuary" but I'm not sure that's what they're looking for.

This is not the blog you're looking for.

Damn - I thought I made one - we'll do it tonight.

(Note: My word verification came up 'odhwaa', which must be a word used by Jawas looking for droids)

No, that's "Outidi!"

Ah, speaking of Star Wars. I was talking to my ex-Blue Man-roommate last night saying how my old Denon receiver died and I replaced it with a Yamaha. My key feature requirement was that it had a phono input. Check. But no more AC-3 RF input for digital audio from my Laserdisc player. This really only affects a small amount of my LDs, but one of them affected is the Star Wars Trilogy Special Editions, which I've had for many years already, much to the disappointment of DVD people. I seem to recall there actually being a difference in the films themselves between the LD SE and the DVD SE. Anyone know? One movie not affected by the now analog-only connection of my LD player is probably the best quality release of the non-SE Star Wars Trilogy: The Ultimate Collection. A 3543-disc set. Or so it seems.
