star wars!

have I mentioned how much I love the original Star Wars?

Was going to write this evening, but wound up assembling a Star Wars-themed housewarming gift for a good friend, instead. So here's the space battle from Return of the Jedi because I spent a very long time as a child desperately wanting to be a cool x-wing pilot like Luke and Wedge. The Christmas I finally got the Lego x-wing set was a giddy one indeed.

All these years later, this sequence still works--even knowing the ending, I find myself on the edge of my seat.
