This morning, I pressed the eject button on the VCR that contained a well-worn copy of Terminator 2. My son will be starting Kindergarten Cop next week, where he will be mentored by the Kindergarten Cop.
My best friend texted me a picture of his own 5-year old a few minutes later, standing next to a full-sized model exoskeleton. “How did we get here?!” I texted back. It was yesterday that we were going through the Conan the Barbarian trilogy together. “How did we get here?!”
In response to the Disney takeover of Lucasfilm, I decided to live-tweet the absolute best movie of the entire Star Wars universe, The Empire Strikes Back. It was also the day of that nor’easter, which increased my desire to disembowel a Tauntaun with a lightsaber and fall asleep snugly in its innards.
