The universe ablaze with changes

I realize the changes aren’t dramatic. But I see no reason to purchase the Star Wars Trilogy DVD. Those aren’t the movies I saw as a kid. Hayden Christiansen was only 2 when Return of the Jedi came out, he shouldn’t be spliced into a scene now two decades later.

Lucas is the director — they are his films. He can do whatever he wants with them. But, to paraphrase a commercial, “this isn’t my oldsmobile.”

Especially since I’ve heard ‘rumors’ of a LaserDisc-to-DVD transfer of the true originals available online.

Sit by my side, come as close as the air,
Share in a memory of gray;
Wander in my words, dream about the pictures
That I play of changes.

The worldís spinning madly, it drifts in the dark
Swings through a hollow of haze,
A race around the stars, a journey through
The universe ablaze with changes.
