Mary and Charlie asked me to take a stab at doing movie reviews for Pasty Central, sorta like Joe Kirkish does for the Daily Mining Gazette. So here goes nothin'.

For some time we've heard about the new futuristic movie with dazzling special effects. (Understand that it takes a while for shows to reach this far north, so some of you may already seen it.) It's a tale of the Empire and the Rebellion, starring Cuke Skywalker and Obi-Won-Cannoli with a cast of dozens, including C-3-Peanut and his sidekick Tofu-D-2. Light Sabers and Thai Fighters add to the action, in this struggle against the Dark Side and the Death Star (which looks strangely familiar). Time to Go Mall and see it, if you haven't already:

Version for folks on Pasty.NET with Broadband (wireless or DSL).

Users everywhere else on high speed connections.

People on dial-up with a lotta patience.

Coming soon to a galaxy near you. After the movie, go on out to the lobby and have a pasty.

Laughed 'til I cried. May the Farm be with you!

The opening newsreel could have been Sunday's Pasty Cameo

Oh my gosh! What a great way to wake up in the morning. That was just too funny. Wish I could come up with something as imaginative as that. You really should write a book.

Thanks for the great show. Mrs W

That was funny, loved the Storm Troopers and the mini Light Sabers. I am still in possession of a Luke Skywalker and Yoda circa Original Star wars, not nearly as creative as these however.

By Hilarie Alwine (Halwine) on Tuesday, April 1, 2008 - 10:42 pm:

That was awesome! My husband has always been a starwars fan. In fact, our 2 year old daughter has a poster of Yoda in her bedroom! Funny that organic food is my passion and we now own an Organic grocery store. When in Iron Mountain stop by Millie Hill Market, located downtown right on Stephenson (US 2, the main drag).

I will try to do that next summer when I visit my godfather's widow.
Ed and Gerry Kukuk were also my parents' maid of honor and best
man at their wedding. They sure love(d) Iron Mountain! My
parents remained in touch with their "Vetville" friends from
Northern and we visited some of them in far flung places over the

What a HOOT!! I can't wait to show my son, the Star Wars geek that he is.
