Almost there...

Friday, May 17, 2002

Went to see Episode 2 last night. It was, well, it was, hmm, well, okay, so Yoda kicks ass. Beyond that, it had a lot of the feel of "and here's a good part for a video game spin-off" and "oh, I know an easy pun I can put in here" and "oh look, this part could make a good video game too!" It was fun being there with a good audience. Lots of cheers, laughter, and even hissing (when Jar-Jar first appeared). It's amazing how much that adds to the experience of a film.

Afterwards, we headed over to Becketts to join the Thursday night dance crowd. It was a good time. I'd never managed to make it before since it does seem a bit crazy to drive to Berkeley two nights a week and stay up too late. But since we were in the neighborhood, it was a great time to see what it's like. The band was great. The dance space was small, but adequate. And seeing more friends (Josh, Will, Magenta, etc.) was lots of fun. We headed home about 11:30, happily danced out, and ready for bed.

I hate to say it, but I'll be happy when Episode 3 comes out just so it will all be over. Sigh. And then I'll get the original trilogy on DVD and that will be that.
