    Star Wars according to a 3 year old.

    by Karen Gray - View all comments


    02/26/08 Update: Wow. What was expected to be a short movie that would circulate within a small circle of friends has turned into something much more very quickly. I’m thrilled that so many people have enjoyed this video but also somewhat mortified that I added this without my daughter’s knowledge or consent. Maybe someday she will find some humor in it.Comments: Have been disabled. I think they have run their course. To those who have sent positive comments, thank you very much. You’ve made us appreciate what we have even more than we already do. To those of you who’ve said you’ve changed your mind about having children, well, have at it. :)Business inquiries/agents: Thanks for your interest. At the current time we have no intention of exposing our little one to the destroyer of youth that is the entertainment industry (with the exception of Star Wars, heh). Hopefully if she chooses to follow this path on her own someday she will find a door still open for her.Other things: She has never seen Pokemon so I don’t think she’s making a reference to the ball on that show. I think she just means pokey ball as in “a ball that is pokey.” (And yes, I know what the pokey balls really are! Stop emailing :) )Three year olds can’t read. I’m sure there are exceptions to that rule. ————————————-Here is my daughter, age 3, explaining the plot of Star Wars Episode IV.She explained the whole movie to me in much greater detail but unfortunately I didn’t have the camera going. When I finally caught her talking about the movie again she delivered this truncated, but still funny, version.Edit: Thank you all for the nice comments. Maybe I will print them out for her and someday and when she’s all growed up she’ll get to read them herself.A little more about the video: She wasn’t coached to say anything, nor was she forced to make the video. She rarely stops talking. Those of you with children understand this: sometimes it’s harder to turn the faucet off than to turn the faucet on.Believe it or not, she has the seem the movie only once, and I spread it out over 3 days so it wouldn’t be too much all at once for her.The video was edited to make it shorter, more cohesive and hopefully funnier. I did move some of the lines around so it would make more sense.

    Yes We Can Obama Song by will.i.am

    by Abe - View all comments


    I was sitting in my recording studio watching the debates…Torn between the candidatesI was never really big on politics…and actually I’m still not big on politics…but 4 years ago, me and the black eyed peas supported Kerry…And we supported Kerry with all our might…We performed and performed and performed for the DNC…doing all we could do to get the youth involved…The outcome of the last 2 elections has saddened me…on how unfair, backwards, upside down, unbalanced, untruthful, corrupt, and just simply, how wrong the world and “politics” are…So this year i wanted to get involved and do all i could early…And i found myself torn…because this time it’s not that simple…our choices aren’t as clear as the last elections …last time it was so obvious…Bush and war vs. no bush and no war…But this time it’s not that simple…and there are a lot of people that are torn just like i am…So for awhile I put it off and i was going to wait until it was decided for me…And then came New Hampshire…And i was captivated…Inspired…

He made his new territory along the Tana river, but when the Wakamba herdsmen kept bringing their livestock to his hunting ground, he moved on. George Adamson said in his autobiography, “I used to count the days on which we hadn’t seen Christian, but when they reached 97, I gave up recording them in my diary.” Because a lion can live from 12 to 15 years in the wild, Adamson believed that Christian ended his days in the Meru National Reserve only a few miles up river.”Lion Man” Gareth Patterson, author, environmentalist, and the person who continued George Adamson’s lion rehabilitation work, revisited Kora in 1998.
