Frequently Asked Questions

So, how do you do this? Do you watch the movies with the sound on while the CD is playing or what?

No, that would be too confusing. I mute the movie right after I start the CD.

And when do you do that?

When do I start each CD? Unless otherwise noted, after the second drumroll in the Twentieth Century Fox fanfare. What I do is I put the CD in my stereo, hit play twice to pause it right at the beginning, start the VHS tape, wait for that second drumroll, and right after that I unpause the CD and the experiment begins.

Why don't you just use the DVDs? All that rewinding has got to be annoying.

It is, but I purposely didn't buy the 2004 DVD set because it didn't include the original theatrical versions of the films (which are the versions I use for this project and the versions I have enjoyed watching for many years). I won't be buying the 2006 DVDs, either, because the original versions they're presenting in that set will be unrestored, non-anamorphic "bonus" faetures. Until Lucasfilm decides to treat the original Star Wars films and their fans with more respect, I'm sticking with my VHS tapes.

Why are you doing all this? Are you that bored and lonely?

I'm doing this because it's interesting and fun. When I started this blog, I didn't really know what to do. Then, after the infamous La Starwarscisto experiment (link), my friend Nathan suggested I devote the whole thing to synching up different albums with Star Wars. It sounded like a good idea, so I tried it. Lo and behold, I started to really get into it, and here we are today (for the record, it was my friend Shane who came up with the idea of theme weeks).
