Every so often, life deal up some coincidences:

On Saturday, Derrick wanted to watch Star Wars. Tara and I decided -- sometime back actually -- that it would be a fine movie for him to watch, so I went down to put it on. However, our copy is a Laser Disk special edition, which is on 5 sides (total) of 3 laser disks. Therefore, I couldn't leave for very long while he was watching, so I ended up watching it again.

On Sunday, the speaker at our church (Lon Allison, director of the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College) referred to the scene from Star Wars where the Millennium Falcon is pulled into the Death Star as part of one of his points.

This morning I found Sunday's edition of Irregular Webcomic refers to the scene in Star Wars where Luke and Leia first meet in the prison cells of the Death Star.

I find it amusing that in the two days following the first time I've watched Star Wars in several years (probably 8 to 10 or more), I encounter two references to the original film.

FYI: I plan on holding onto my laser disk copy of the original Star Wars trilogy. It is about the only way I have left to actually see the original movies before Lucas decided that he should go back and continually edit the original movies to match is updated vision (bad) or improve the effects (not bad).
