Behold the Monomyth!



This is work done by Joseph Cambell, who inspired George Lucas to create Star Wars, who inspired viewers to begin a hero's journey of their own.
But, uh...well there it is.

Cool find... always liked Joseph Campbell's take on religion, heroes and Star Wars.

I actually found it because of a YouTuber I follow. He referenced the books "The Hero With A Thousand Faces" and "The Hero's Journey". Both done by Joseph Cambell.

Just watched "Rogue One".

Hmmm...

The re-programmed Imperial robot was the best character in it for me.

MAY THE 4TH BE WITH YOU ALL!

In honor of May the 4th day here's a true story by the comedian Jim Jeffries about his brother, George Lucas, and a Lizard.

Story bit starts about 1:25 into the clip

So I was thinking, when Vader force choked that dude in Rogue One and he says "be careful not to choke on your ambitions", I was thinking that Darth must still follow the Jedi philosophy because the Jedi practiced detachment. Just a thought. He still uses dark side force powers but his mind is warped to where he can't tell good from evil. It's like Obi Wan said to him "you are lost"
But, uh...well there it is.

xSp - I liked those Moyer/Campbell interviews. Very interesting perspective on humans and roles in society.

BTW, I'm working on a Star Wars parody song (yeah, I'm the last guy to write one of those!)
