Sure, we’re all delighted by “My First Hardcore Song”, the YouTube video starring the pretty adorable eight-year-old Juliet which rocketed to over 15 million views in the four days it’s been up. Why not? She loves her dog Robert and her fishes. It’s wonderful.
I just feel like it stole some of the viral shine from Star Wars Uncut, a project that doled out 15-second bits of A New Hope and had fans recreate them however they wanted. The assemblage of all those clips was posted not long ago and at least deserves some skipping around.
While we’re talking Star Wars, lemme say I’m not sure what I was expecting when I got my Star Wars page-a-day calendar, but it wasn’t this. It’s going through the series chronologically. I started in with it late, so I began my 2012 calendar with three or four days of strictly Jar Jar Binks and other Gungans.
I’m in for a little over a month more of The Phantom Menace. It’s a long time until Chewie. Wish me luck.
