Star Wars: In Concert is coming to Grand Rapids, Michigan on Wednesday, July 14 at the Van Andel Arena at 7:00 p.m. The production features a full symphony orchestra and choir, accompanied by specially edited footage from the films displayed on a three-story-tall, high-definition LED super-screen – one of the largest ever put on tour.

Prior to the show, the real costumes worn by the actual stars of the original films will be on display. Is anyone interested in going? I heard this was an amazing production.

My charcter, Bree Maloria is a young 17 year old jedi in training. She falls in love with Anakin Skywalker. Bree was born on Corellia, her parents names are Ginger (mother), and James (father).
Bree loved her parents so much until stormtroopers attacked her city and killed her parents.

She decided to go to Tatooine to become a jedi and look for somewhere to live.
When Bree turned 15 she was discovered by Obi-Wan Kenobi. He brought her to the Jedi Temple to see if she will become successful in the future. Yoda saw that she would fall in love with someone in the Jedi council. Bree was afraid because it was forbidden to fall in love when you are a jedi. Yoda and Mace Windu warned her to look out for other jedi so she can't be in love.
Yoda also suggested to Obi-Wan to train Bree.
He wanted her to work with his padawan, Anakin Skywalker. 2 years later, Bree finishes her training with Obi-Wan. She finally meets Anakin on
Naboo. Anakin and Bree both become fast friends and team members.

I see alot of Padme vs. Leia questions along with Luke vs. Darth Vader or Anakin. More the Padme vs. Leia. But did we ever stop and think that maybe we dont have to compare them or maybe one doesnt have to be better than the other becaue they are the Skywalker family. There is a new fanpop spot for them. Maybe you know. But Padme gave her angelic beauty to Leia, and Leia does have her mothers will to do good-both being senators- but there is alot of her Father in her. Leia is very fiesty and bullheaded. Luke on the other hand has also inherited more of his mothers will to do good, I believe that is why when he left before his trianing was complete he didnt fall to the dark side. And when he got angry and impatient like His Father, He didnt succumb to the Dark side either. Of course seeing his aunt and uncle murdered helped him realize he has to stop the Galatic Republic rather than join them. Unlike Anakin who when he saw his mother killed by the Sand people, didnt realize that turning to the Dark Side of the Force and becoming as Sith to Avenge her or save Padme would make him more evil than the Tuscan Raiders. But as you watch the movies Im sure you all notice irony and...

i made a record called " the joystick lothario " , it has comic book themes and sounds from sci fi, video games and anime.
the song " saturday knights " is based in the STAR WARS universe,
i asked myself what do the JEDI do when they are done policing the universe, every once in a while they party ! this is a party song for the JEDI , its a straight groove ! its great to party to or to listen to on those long runs from one side of the universe to the other.

Come see Carrie Fisher perform live at Arena Stage in Washington, DC !

Wishful Drinking
created and performed by Carrie Fisher
September 5 through 28, 2008
link


Carrie Fisher is the life of the party in this uproarious and sobering look at her Hollywood hangover. The daughter of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, Carrier Fisher became a cultural icon when she stared as Princess Leia in the first Star Wars trilogy at 19 years olds. Forever changed, Carrie’s life did not stay picture perfect. A demanding career and single motherhood followed, as well as her struggle with addiction. It’s an incredible tale filled with self-deprecating humor about having Elizabeth Taylor as a step-mother, marrying (and divorcing) Paul Simon, and losing her daughter’s father to another man. Fisher tells a true and intoxicating story with the strong wry wit that she poured into bestsellers like Postcard from the Edge. Get “Carried” away with this hilarious insider’s look at life in Hollywood.

The much publicized upcoming link got me thinking about the optimal viewing order for the Star Wars saga. The logical approach is to view the movies in episodic order (which is how Cinemax plans to air it). But I'm not so certain that this is the best way to watch Star Wars.

What follows is a rundown on the only four *viable* ways to view the Star Wars saga that I can think of. Sure there are other viewing orders, but these are the only ones that make sense from the standpoint of storytelling and continuity.

Here goes:

Method 1: By Order of Episode

This approach is clearly the viewing order intended by George Lucas. Quite simply, you watch the movies by episode number starting from Episode I: The Phantom Menace and Finishing with Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

Why it works: This approach provides a strong high-level story arc centered on the rise, fall and redemption of Darth Vader. You essentially move chronologically through his life from childhood all the way to his death and final redemption by his children. You also...
