Two Thoughts on Election Day Tuesday

My first thought this day is that it's Election Day Tuesday here in the United States. And since this is an entertainment blog and not a political blog, I won't talk about my political views, but I do want to remind all my readers who are eligible to vote, to GO OUT THERE and CAST YOUR VOTE! It's your citizen's duty and a privilege to take part in shaping our government and society.  Don't be silent...let your voice be heard.  And please remember to vote responsibly.  Our future is at stake.



My second thought this Tuesday is about Disney's recent purchase of Lucasfilm, the maker of the legendary Star Wars movies, for $4 billion! Can you imagine that?!  One gigantic, legendary company owning another.  
Wow! Well, since that news was released, I've seen post after post poking some fun at it.  I mean, seriously, Disney and Star Wars are "worlds apart" - yes, pun intended.

Actually I shouldn't be so surprised.  Back in the late 1980's I visited Disneyland in Anaheim, California and took the Star Tours which was based on Star Wars. And that was a really fun ride!  I just wonder where all my pictures went.  Oh yeah, they're buried in my photo albums since we didn't have digital cameras and computers to store the images in then.  LOL!


Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys the rest of this week.  And enjoy the humor people find in these pictures of Star Wars characters at Disney!

Hi Liggy, Those pictures are fun. When the original movie came out my son was only two but he was a prime age of 5 when the 2nd one came out. Our house was a haven for every Star Wars toy ever made. I hope that Disney does a good job keeping it fun.

Click to you!!

Liggy -

Did my duty and voted.

Personally, I think Disney and Star Wars is a natural alliance. Like you say, Star Tours has been part of Disneyland since way back and characters like Ewoks and Jar Jar Binks seem could seem like naturals for Disney. Love your pictures.
