Random Stuff

Tuukka Rask returned to the Bruins tonight and beat the Flyers 3-2. Pastrnak scored all three goals. A hat trick for Pasta tonight after a hat trick for Marchand last night. Sweetness all around.

Note to self: you opened a new jug of distilled water for the CPAP machine’s humidifier tonight. Try and keep track of how long it lasts, for future reference and stuff.

Patches is fully back to normal tonight. We can tell because she puked 17 pounds of partially eaten cat food onto Jen’s desk. Right as rain, feline.

I’m sitting up in bed for a little while. Should I rewatch episode 3 of The Book of Boba Fett or should I watch the first episode of The Peacemaker. Or should I just sleep.

You’re right. Sleep it is.

Possible car music in the morning. We will see when the morning gets here.

The Kids are Here

The kids got here a couple of hours ago. That makes me very happy.

Lots going on at work. Changes coming. Small, low level reorganization. Good things on the way. I just can’t talk about it, not that I would say anything outside of the most vague references the English language will allow anyway.

The Book of Boba Fett is on tonight. I don’t know if anyone will want to watch it with me. I liked the first episode, but I think I might have been the only one in the house who did. A co-worker said the second episode is excellent. Fingers crossed. Hopefully it has Han Solo coming around for some pay back, you Boba Bitch. A boy can dream, right?

I did some music before work this morning. I put a MIDI bass part onto one of the two new January song ideas. No melody yet. Nothing to sing. I have a few re-records ready for vocals, but I want to have something new to sing before I go for the drive again.

The Bruins won last night. They are 3-0 since coming back from the Covid shut down. They play Minnesota tomorrow. Keep the streak going.

US Attorney General Merrick Garland gave a speech on the investigation into last year’s treasonous terrorist insurrection at the US Capital. Remember that? When a bunch of trump cult maga terrorists tried to violently overturn the 2020 presidential election? The speech boils down to this: We’re working on it. That’s all I wanted to hear, Merrick. Well… maybe that and you’re planning on picking up the pace. Fascist heads need to roll.

17 minutes until the end of the work day. I’m ready.

Boba Fett

We have watched episode one of The Book of Boba Fett and all is right with the world.

I was hoping for a longer running time, but I said the same about literally every Disney+ show that we’ve watched so far.

My spoiler free review: I want episode two NOW!!

Four Lines

In reference to the previous post, Boba Fett did have more than two lines in the original Star Wars trilogy. In fact, he had four lines.

1. “He’s no good to me dead.”

– Boba Fett, ‘The Empire Strikes Back.”

2. “As you wish.”

– Boba Fett, ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’

3. “Put Captain Solo in the cargo hold.”

– Boba Fett, ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’

4. “What if he doesn’t survive? He’s worth a lot to me.”

– Boba Fett, ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’

That’s it. He has a full blown fight scene in Return of the Jedi and he also gets swallowed whole by a great big worm/bug thing that lives in the sand.

I mentioned he has lines in the prequels and in the Clone Wars TV show. I forgot that he also has lines in the Star Wars Holiday Special. That’s probably the most important Boba Fett scene for me, not because it’s anything special (though it’s not as cringe-tasitc as the rest of the Holiday Special), but because of the fan club.

I was six when Star Wars came out. I say it all the time, but I was the target audience. Star Wars toys instantly because the main focus of my entire existence. I couldn’t get enough, and everything I got my tiny little mitts on was quickly destroyed by the constant usage.

Prior to the airing of The Holiday Special in November of 1978, the Star Wars fan club made an exclusive offer. If you joined the fan club you could get an action figure for a character that would make its debut in the TV special. I can’t remember if I asked my parents to sign me up, or if they did it on their own, but I got that action figure in the mail. Boba Freakin’ Fett. Someone else signed me up as well. I’m not sure who it was. I don’t know if I ever knew who it was. Regardless of who did it, I actually got a second Boba Freakin’ Fett action figure out of it. The character hadn’t even appeared on screen (big or small) yet and I had TWO action figures!

What does all of this mean? Nothing. I just want the show to be good. I want it to reach the very high bar that The Mandalorian set.

Two days.

Book of Boba Fett Trailer(s)

There is a new trailer for The Book of Boba Fett that snuck past me. It’s short and doesn’t give much away. It’s the first thing in this video, which seems to cut all of the trailers together.

To say I am hyped is a huge understatement.
