I felt the Force. It was sorta squishy.

Yesterday I shot up to Sydney for a day trip with my eldest son who has a recent fascination with Star Wars.

I think that this is an awesome thing because the Star Wars movies were an obsession of mine when I was a kid and I still love them today.

The Powerhouse Museum has been showing a Star Wars exhibition for the last 6 months or so.

There’s a collection of models, costumes and kids activities on show and it was very entertaining! I wish there were things like this when I was younger.

I took quite a few snaps of the models and puppets used in the movie.

Did you know that Chewbacca was a runty wookiee?

Did you know that Wookiee is spelt with 2 e’s?

Did you that that they used real buildings in Tunisia for some of the Tatooine scenes?

Too bad the exhibition closes at the Powerhouse this weekend, but if you’ve heading to Melbourne, it’ll be there for 5 months from June!

It was nice to have a father/son day. Especially when we could talk about superheroes, aliens and cartoons all day!

There’s something wonderful about having a child grow up to share similar interests. Not that they’re not allowed to have their own interests of course, but I love that we can communicate about these things so well and it takes me back to my childhood.

Fortunately he also follows the Eels and Brumbies πŸ™‚

About Mick

I've been around a while. I like to wrap myself around the warm security of the interwebs which have consumed me since 1993. I whinge, I rant, I crap on. Enjoy. View all posts by Mick
