This past Saturday I attended the Monster Kolor Pin Striping Class, and let me tell you it was a wonderful day.

I’ve got to be honest, when I was a kid I didn’t appreciate the awesomeness of Jitsu. He seemed more boring to me at the time when compared to crazy characters like a skunk man or giant lobster. These days I can see the man with the golden karate chop for the bad mother that he really is. He’s like the guy at the party who you don’t even notice.

The other day Dr Rampageo asked me if I could do this week’s Force Friday review. I didn’t have to think twice before agreeing but I did have to think about what the heck I was going to review. I’m not going to claim to have the World’s Largest Star Wars Collection but Star Wars does take up a sizeable amount of what I do own.
