Star Wars Nerds Unite!

I mentioned that I got to go to the Hollywood Bowl to see Star Wars in Concert with Michelle. It was absolutely amazing.

Finally, I can wear my hoodie without fear of judgement.

OMG! It’s starting. Luke and Leia are sitting in front of us too!

Darth Vader! Michelle looked at her hoodie and said, “That’s me!”

Mr. Anthony Daniels, C3P0 himself narrated the show.

They had some really cool animations and sketches they showed during the show.

The firing of the Death Star’s primary weapon, a superlaser created by the hypermatter reactor.

How dare you fall asleep during this awesome display of awesomeness!

Special effects and screen display aside, the orchestra was fantastic. I would find myself bobbing my head to the music of my favorite sci-fi franchise and then realize the music was being played live. Incredible performance.

Those are all light sabers, being swayed back and forth along to the music. These are my people.

This was such a great experience. Many thanks to Michelle’s dad and mom, who not only tolerate my love for geeky things like this, but also encourage it by getting us the tickets. Michelle is on her way to joining the Dark Side, which is the best side because “evil will always triumph over good, because good is dumb.”
