Nerds of the World: You're Welcome

I got a request from Valerie saying that her husband James (nerd) wanted a post dedicated to my pictures of the Star Wars set I visited in the desert.  He believes it will help him enter the world of Star Wars, like some sort of mystic portal.  Well, fingers crossed, James.  

 

This is Bronwyn's sister and brother in law, Megan and Dima.  They were my traveling buddies.  Dima is Russian and so I heard a lot of Cold War era jokes on the trip.  Hilarious.


I really hope this one doesn't ruin the magic for you.


Tatooine.


Tatooine and Me.  (Which is a potential name for my autobiography).








The set was in the middle of nowhere.  It is nothing but miles and miles and miles of vast open desert.  We had been off roading for about an hour before we got there.  Incidentally, off roading in the back seat of a 4x4 after you have spent the night vomitting your spleen is an adventure all on its own.

You should go to this link http://vimeo.com/15607283 and listen to the song (although the paper stuff is cool, too). This was the soundtrack I was thinking of as I looked through your pictures. It heightened the experience.

Love, love, love, love!!

Phil's going to be really happy to see this post, he thought it was awesome that you went there. We're all star wars nerds here as well.

Super cool. Thanks from a big nerd with a Princess Leia costume in the back of her closet.

Grrrr! I hate everywhere but where you are. I want to be there so bad. I would reenact the all the scenes. And I wouldn't even care what other people thought because I would hi-five myself all day as I walked around there.

Thank you for posting more pictures. It made my galazy.

Valerie said...

Seriously, Rachel, these are amazing. And, even more seriously, I'd buy that autobiography.

Also, I think James meant galaxy.

Did you go into Toshi Station to pick up some power converters?

I've never seen a more wretched hive of scum and villany. Oh the jealous... Rome is paling in comparison.

Was there a binary sunset?
