Hello Buz crew,

I have been listening to the recent discussions about the changes to the Star wars Blueray. most notably in Return of the Jedi when Darth Vader screams no before saving his son.

Attached is a short audio clip of that seen from the Return of the Jedi radio dramatization from 1996.

Brock Peters who portrays Darth vader sounds like he is in pain as he watches the emperor try to kill Luke with the force lightning. After hearing this, the word No really does fit.

Give it a listen and let the listeners know what you think.

Love the show and keep it up.
Thanks
Chris

Dear Buzzcrew,

I've been listening to you guys almost from the very beginning - LOVE THE SHOW — but ok, now I'm bummed.

Nope, nothing to do with your switch to a weekly podcast (although *sigh*). Last night, I was at the gym, listening to Friday's BOL, when I hear Molly say she's going to Denmark. Denmark?! I about dropped the 10-kilo weight I was trying to pull up over my head. Sure enough, I sat down at my computer an hour later, did some googling, and it turns out there was a meetup two hours previously in Copenhagen. Now, I'm norh, in the burbs, about an hour in total away from that particular venue, so I figured it was too late. I checked again this morning, hoping for another chance, but by then Molly had tweeted that she was at the airport, leaving this fair city. Not only that, but judging by Molly's 2:00 am tweets, it looks as though I could actually have made it to the meetup. *palm smacks forehead*

It's not enough that summer is effectively over and out here, that the weather is cold and windy and gray and wet (like it will be till about next June!), but I MISSED MOLLY's VISIT!!!! It's enough to make even a 54-year-old who previously just couldn't see the use break down and sign up with Twitter.

Twitter 1; this Buzzfan severely depressed.

Love you guys,

Dee the interpreter
