A crackin’ good time

I'm not sure about the message Lucas Films is trying to send by mailing me a whip.

Well, that's not true. I do in fact know exactly what message they're sending:

"Really, 'Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' is an awesome title, and you really should go see the new Indiana Jones movie when it comes out."

Done and done. Actually, I think the title is pretty lame-ass, but these are the folks who brought us "Temple of Doom." Nevertheless, I will have butt on seat as soon as is physically allowed once that movie comes out. I don't care if Harrison Ford is too old, or that Shia LeBouffant is in it. I just love me some Indy.

What I am trying to figure out is why the little tag on the end is
copyright 2004. Have they had these things sitting around for four
years? It might explain the funk.

Anyway, so this thing arrived today. It smells a little funky and chemically but I think it's real leather. And I bet with a little practice it could completely leave amark. Or several.

I think I've got my Halloween costume already figured out.

I have a whip. Damn, man!

UPDATE: Cracking a whip in a small New York apartment: Not advised. I think I whapped myself in the back.

    Have you seen some of the early trailers? It actually looks quite true to the series….

    Whips are more powerful and more difficult to control then people realize.
