Luke......I am your DAD.

I love misquoting famous movie lines just to see the reaction.

For work last Friday I got to go up to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago to film footage of the opening of the Star Wars exhibit. We also "had" to record interviews with Anthony Daniels (c-3po) and George Lucas. It was great experience and I am glad that I could be part of this project.

Before I go on, this was also the same night as my wife's birthday. So the following is bittersweet.

I don't get star struck much anymore, but I think George Lucas is more than just a famous person. He is an artist, inventor and visionary. His art has shaped a segment of the culture in which I grew up. And his pursuit of advanced technology in cinematography has yielded things like THX Sound and the Avid nonlinear video editing system. For those who do not know what an Avid is, it has been the flagship video editing system for the last 15 years. It revolutionized the way content was and is created for film and TV. I believe that when history writes about George Lucas he will be lauded with the likes of Da Vinci and Michelangelo. I'm serious. Not just because of Star Wars but because of what his passion for art has done to influence art and technology. If you recall Da Vinci and Michelangelo we doing the same things just with cruder instruments. So to keep me humble, the only pics of me the whole day came out blurry and show me milking Mr. Lucas.

This is me getting "friendly" with Mr. Lucas. I believe he actually winked at me.

This is Anthony Daniels (c-3po) and me. Honestly, the company I work for takes video and pictures professionaly. Seriously, how hard is it to point and shoot a camera.......sheeesh, you're fired you imbecile. There are more pics on the imbecile's blog.

Thank You Starbucks

Throughout this month Starbucks is giving out free songs from iTunes. I guess after years of charging us out the yin-yang for coffee, this is the least they could do. But I want to honestly thank them for the song I just downloaded. It is "Jokerman" from Bob Dylan's Infidel record. This song is great. In fact I will probably download the whole album. Hmmmm just from buying a cup of coffee, they have sold a record as well. Brilliant.

Behold, the glory of God!!

To me, the creation of life is evidence enough of God. Even the technology behind this 3-D sonogram is an example of God's glory. Yes, man and science created it, but God has given us the capacity to do these things. Here is our daughter. She is safe in her mothers tummy now, but in a month she will be here in the real world.
