This Sort of Thing is a blog about Star Wars--the real, old, good Star Wars.

If you want to read about padawans, or clone troopers, or droid armies, or the taxation of trade routes to outlying star systems, you've come to the wrong place.

If you think Star Wars is properly called Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, this is probably not the blog for you.

If you have questions about the Expanded Universe, try Wookiepedia. Or better yet, try ignorance. 

But if you're a thirty- or forty-something man* who once used to say "pew pew" on a daily basis, you might enjoy this.

*Women are also most welcome, whether you used to say "pew pew" yourself or just want to understand your partner's strange infatuation with a galaxy far, far away.
