Blathering on about Wookies....


I’m always amazed 
John Williams actually gave the Star Wars movies such an
incredible score. Like, can you imagine being 
some supremely talented movie composer
—a SERIOUS artist type, you know—
and some perennially dorky social klutz like 
George Lucas coming up to you and blathering on about 
“Wookies” and 
“Darth Vader” and 
“Light Saber duels” and 
you having to take that shit seriously? That’s what’s most impressive 
about the whole thing. Williams is 
the quintessential craftsmen. Give him a stupid 
job and he’ll still give his 
best effort.
