use the libretto, Luke!

Where are you going to be in March? If you're with me, you're gonna be attending one of North Cambridge Family Opera's performances of Space Opera. From the description:

SPACE OPERA, written in 1998 by Cambridge Massachusetts composer David Bass, is based on a familiar science fiction tale of heroes and villains, robots and aliens, unlikely adventures and supernatural nonsense.

So without naming any names, what they're getting at is an opera where my coworker's daughter is trying out for either the part of Jabba the Hut or R2D2. This is going to be great! Take a look at the audition guidelines for some sample MP3's. Especially Chewbacca's "Prisoner's Lament." You have to hear it to believe it.

Low Quality Management
According to Amazon.com, customers who viewed the listing for Lean Six Sigma: A Tools Guide also viewed How to Attract Asian Women and The Complete A**hole's Guide to Handling Chicks. That was a strange find.

The Working Fangirl
Where I work, the participants in our online courses are sorted into study groups, and the instructors often refer to them by those initials. So it's a bit of a double-take when I get someone writing in with problems and claiming to be on "SG 1". Focus less on getting Quicktime running and more on kicking Goa'uld ass, fella! ... wow, I'm a huge nerd.

Chewbacca would never waste that long on lamentation. He'd growl once and proceed to kick ass.

I dunno, there's a fair amount of Wookiee "singing" in the Christmas special ....

I'm also looking forward to seeing if they do the big Death Star fight at the end. Porkins' Lament!
