And now for something a little different

This isn't so much about writing as storytelling. You have to watch this totally amazing video acting out/retelling all three of the original Star Wars movies. The three members of the George Lucas Appreciation Society are amazing.

If you enjoyed this, netflix "The Reduced Shakespeare Company" Adam - the guy in red - was a part of this group. They do all 37 plays in less than 90 minutes...

Thanks, John! I'd forgotten about The Reduced Shakespeare Company... They're great! I'm going to stick that back on my queue. It's been a couple of years since I watched it.

I wish I could remember the name of the Opera in 60 seconds short I saw on PBS a several years ago. They kept a running total on the number of murders, suicides, and other hilarity.

It's just great to watch someone distill novels, plays, operas from plot to story.
