“I don’t like sand. It’s coarse. It’s rough. It gets everywhere. And it’s generally in a box filled with my own feces and urine.”
That, at least, is what I imagine li’l Anakitty said before he grew up to become Darth Vader cat, who menaces his human with a lightsaber and a scale TIE fighter.
I watched this with my cat Toby just to see what sort of feline reaction it gets. He hated the lightsaber noises, but from the moment the laser pointer came into play till the moment it was gone, he stared, transfixed. And then bolted.
“Some things are soft.” But not a cat scared by TIE lasers. He’s all flying fingernails.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
