If the social media reaction I woke up to Monday morning after sharing some shots from Sunday night’s Calpurnia gig are any indiciation, I’m about 24 hours away from turning this site into a Stranger Things fan site. Let me back up here for a moment.
Most people who know me would say I’m a Star Wars fan. This is true to a point: I’m a fan of the Star Wars films and works that series creator George Lucas personally oversaw and directed but have no interest in the mass produced husk that the Walt Disney Company has been in charge of since the fall of 2012 when Lucas sold his company to the Mouse. I know that most who would call themselves Star Wars fans were quite happy with this news as those same people have not been happy with Lucas’s handling of the franchise.
As a George Lucas fan, any criticism of the man’s handling of his work is beyond me. I cherish each and every frame that he crafted with the movies and still look forward to my viewings of the proper George Lucas saga despite having seen the films umpteen times.
