Hey Folks! Please find information on the Friday night Sith Charity Ball at http://2008.arisia.org/SithBall . There will be lots of cool things to see on opening night - we hope to see you there!

There will be raffle tickets for sale at the ball and at the 501st/Rebel Legion fan table on Saturday - all proceeds benefit the Make a Wish Foundation. Our drawing will be held at the 3:00 PM Fandom and Charity panel on Saturday (you do not need to be present to win - prizes will be claimed in the Ops office). Tickets will be 2/$5 except for some very cool special prizes which will have their own drawings (tickets for those prizes are $5 each). The list of prizes is quite impressive and is growing!

One of my Dad's sisters is a teacher out in Webster, MA. He forwarded an e-mail to me that she sent him:

"Hi Bro,
I told the kids in school about Jodi and sports illus. The next day a student brought in the picture which he printed off line. It is now hanging in my classroom next to JD's smiling picture.

The kids asked:
Is she a movie star? Ans: Yes
What is her name? Ans. Jodi
What is her last name? Ans. No last name, just Jodi. You know, like Madonna, just Jodi.
How old is she? Ans. Twenties.

Boy, the picture makes her look 30.

If I had said 30, they would have been turned off by the age. I loved the picture, but Jodi is more beautiful than that picture shows.

love, sis"

So as many great ideas happen, it started out as a joke.

I was working on an ANH Leia dress and Brian was commenting how it was so unsexy with its ankle length hem, long sleeves, and buns on the side of my head. He mentioned that I really should make a slave Leia outfit (for the 100th time) and I joked that I'd make one and bellydance to the Cantina song in it. He and Aaron seemed to think that was a good idea.

I've been taking lessons for about 5 years now off and on and my student show is 6/25. I guess I'm kind of at intermediate level now, and I'm doing my first solo to try and force myself into choreography which I've always had a difficult time with. I had picked out a song, but I was having a hard time coming up with a routine and a costume. Yesterday I kept mulling that Cantina song idea. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad after all. My teachers thought it was great. The theme of our show is "Circles and Cycles" and doing a SW dance would be appropriate given that the movies are at the end of their cycle. Plus, there are usually a couple of comical dances in the show and mine would fit that bill (for those that got it).

I came home last night to listen to the song. Damn, its the perfect length! I hadn't really thought about it before, a lot of the music is just plain ole Charleston (which I can do well given other dance experience). Its fun music, I know the music, and possible moves kept jumping into my head.

So its looking like I'll be dressed in a costume based on the Slave Leia outfit (there will be more to it, so I don't fall out while dancing in it) and I'll be bellydancing to the Cantina song. Freaky! Here's info on the student show if anyone is interested in checking it out: http://www.thegoddessdancing.com/showcase_2005.htm . I'll also be in 2 other dances (to "Circle Dream" by 10,000 Maniacs and to "Cleopatra" by a Surf Rock band - I can't remember the band's name but the album title is "Shark Attack").

This should be very interesting.

Wow

Without giving any spoilers away, I REALLY enjoyed Revenge of the Sith. George got better at directing and Hayden got better at acting. Its definitely quite the emotional movie, and draws many parallels to a classic tragedy. Neat! He's made up for Jar Jar with this one.

There was a pre-party at Felt, the movie shown at the Tremont Lowes, and post VIP party at Felt. In addition ticket holders got munchy food at felt, popcorn and soda at the movie, and a really good goodie bag stuffed with some pretty valuable SW goods donated by Hasbro (including a full CD set of the 1970s SW Radio Show, worth around $200). There were some NE Patriots, NE Revolution, and an actor that I can't recall in attendance (it was funny seeing some of the Pats trying on TK helmets - not like I'd recognize who any of them were). NIN's bus and Limo were parked nearby and a bunch of trooper's outside (in front of the Ritz) got to see freaky tattooed people getting in and out of said bus for a while.

So if you saw any SW costumed folks on the news out in Boston last night, that was us. I'm hoping to find links with pics to share at some point.
