in which i detail my failing as a star wars educator for the next generation.

it’s clear to me that my best efforts in educating the next generation of star wars fans have been for naught. while discussing star wars episodes this afternoon, episodes were referred in terms of their corresponding lego kits. i.e., the battle of hoth (which has a corresponding lego kit) was the point of reference as opposed to referring to the empire strikes back. i don’t know if i should chalk this up to a failing on my part to impart the importance of the mythology or whether this is a function of the marketing muscle of lego and/or george lucas.
