Project “Star Wars”
Image by yours truly
Our family loves Star Wars.
We own Star Wars movies.
We own Star Wars books.
We own Star Wars toys.
And of course we have lightsabers.
My brother and I have played every Star Wars game we could find.
My brother made a Jango Fett costume out of cardboard and paint.
My default costume is always “Jedi”.
My mother used to have a crush on Luke Skywalker.
My father…well, he’s watched the movies.
We love Star Wars so much that we even named my 6 year old little brother after George Lucas and Luke Skywalker.
We love Star Wars. Unfortunately, little Lukie, despite his name, doesn’t. He’s only 6, and while he’s too young for us to expect him to watch Star Wars, we are devastated. Not because he hasn’t watched it yet, but because he doesn’t actually want to.
We’ve even suggested the Clone Wars cartoons, but the answer’s still no. He just tells us straight that he absolutely doesn’t want to watch Star Wars, though he hasn’t even seen it. We worry he’ll never get to watch his namesake, and the irony of the situation hurts us all deeply.
I’m not going to give up though. I’m determined to make him love Star Wars. One way or another, I will.
Today I came up with and started to implement what I hope is a fool-proof plan to get Lukie into Star Wars.
We’re gonna make a new obsession out of his current obsession. We’re going to get him into Star Wars through the PS2.
Now more than ever, Lukie’s been so addicted to the PS2. It sounds obsolete, but we all love our old PS2 – especially Lukie. He doesn’t care if it isn’t a PS3; he doesn’t even know the difference between the two. To him, a PS3 is simply just a “different PS2″.
Anyway, he’s been playing Spongebob and Cars games on that thing whenever he gets the chance to. He’s obsessed with video games. So I introduced him to a new one – Lego Star Wars. He played it for 5 minutes, and now he loves it. We turned the PS2 off half an hour ago, and he’s still talking about it. He’s actually been trying to make the characters and objects in the game out of Lego as soon as he let go of the controller.
He’ll get addicted to this game, and, hopefully, through Lego Star Wars, he will open his heart to actually watching the movie. Sooner or later, I will make him love Star Wars…in non-Lego form.
Sorry for being gone for so long (3 months, actually). I was just so busy that it was easier to just pretend Clar.me didn’t even exist.
Well, I’m back now though, hopefully for good!
Probably completely irrelevant to the blog post I’m about to read, but I’m still gonna say that this layout is so awesome, and I’m always amazed by what you design. :D /akasojealous.
Good luck to you in making your brother like Star Wars. :P
Thank you so much. :) It’s actually an old layout, haha, and, for some reason, I just really, really felt like using it again! :)
Maybe when he gets in his teens, he’ll like Star Wars. I only got into Star Wars when I stepped in High School.
If I was a dad, I would name my son Luke and I would tell him always, “Luke, I am your father.” XD
Do you do link exchanges? :)
My dad used to say that to him a bit when he was little, haha, but if I were him I definitely would’ve done it a lot more! Unfortunately, I had to settle with, “Luke, I am your sister.” Close enough.
Sorry, I don’t do link exchanges.
That is a start I suppose, but Lego Star Wars is pretty awesome…Lol I’m surprised you guys love Star Wars so much! I’ve never seen that kind of dedication and love before.
actually, star wars is the first movie i’ve ever seen on a cinema.. lol my mom and dad told me it was an 80s movie and during the late 90s they just showed it for some reason and gawd.. my first crush is d.vader.. lol after like several years, they showed the phantom menace and omg.. Anakin is <3
This post was extremely cute! (I also love Star Wars!)
Lukie is still quite young and not quite the age where Star Wars really starts making sense yet. Perhaps he will be interested in a few years. Or perhaps your plan will work when he begins asking questions about the Death Star and Jedi Knights… :P
