MOVIES/VIDEOS: Star Wars According to a 3 Year Old

I don't even remember how I found this. I was surfing through the net. But I loved it and am sharing it with you. It's from YouTube. - OlderMusicGeek

About This Video
Added: February 22, 2008
02/26/08 Update: Wow. What was expected to be a short movie that would circulate within a small circle of friends has turned into something much more very quickly. I'm thrilled that so many people have enjoyed this video but also somewhat mortified that I added this without my daughter's knowledge or consent. Maybe someday she will find some humor in it.

To those who have sent positive comments, thank you very much. You've made us appreciate what we have even more than we already do. To those of you who've said you've changed your mind about having children, well, have at it. :)

She has never seen Pokemon so I don't think she's making a reference to the ball on that show. I think she just means pokey ball as in "a ball that is pokey."

Some comments from YouTube. You actually probably don't want to read all the comments on YouTube, because they have a big, long fight in there about whether the 3 year old was reading from cue cards or being coached what to say. All I can say is those people OBVIOUSLY never had any kids! - OlderMusicGeek

"Don't talk back to Darth Vader!" -- 3 years old and she already knows more than 90% of the high ranking Imperial Officers.

Here's some far more interesting comments to this video from the A.V. Club website. - OlderMusicGeek

I don't get the appeal... her analysis lacked depth, historical insight, and comparative gravity. A more detailed look into the socio-mythic implications of the "shiny guy" motif may have instituted said heart-melting, but as is, a resounding naught.
And she stole my crayon.

I like how earnestly and solemnly she explains that it blowed up Princess Leia's planet.

I love the bit where a notepad appears and she seems to be reading her notes on star wars.

Kid's these days are so condescending towards the Force.

I know! It's like they think it's some hokey religion.

Kid, I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. It's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

And it's not like their sad devotion to that ancient religion has helped them conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given them clairvoyance enough to find the rebels' hidden fort-aaaacck-AAAACCCKKK!!!

The little girl didn't even get hit in the crotch or fall out of a car or anything. What a sucky video.

This is way more entertaining than any of the prequels.

Music That I've Enjoyed Recently

My Internet Radio Stations

This is a fairly good sampling of some of the music I listen to. It's missing a few genres I like - such as cajun. I'll work on that later. But it does contain most of my favorite artists. I tried to steer away from the better known songs to give you a better idea of what kind of music the artists play, but I was limited by the songs the website - Project Playlist - had available. But if you want to get an idea of what I listen to, just hit the play or arrow button. - OlderMusicGeek

The internet station that does the best of playing my music is Last.fm. Here's my station if you're interested.

This website, OlderMusicGeek Radio on Pandora.com, does a fairly decent job of playing what I like, although they do occasionally play stuff I don't care for, but overall they're pretty good.
