Staying home from work today and taking myself to the doctor. Ergh.
Why I like Star Wars.
Piles of books, comics, games and the movies, and this is what I’ve realised:
The thing I love about Star Wars is that the Jedi and Sith are basically both fundamentalists. It’s everyone around them that suffers. It’s ostensibly a parable about what happens when idiotically rigid religious institutions deeply infused with the state ruin things on a galactic scale.
Maybe that’s why I love Han so much; he actively embraces chaos and ambiguity. He denies. He’s like the sexiest atheist ever.
I decided to watch Star Wars Episode 4 half an hour ago and then you post this. It was perfect timing.
