    My first thought, even though I'd read about Anderson yesterday. Saw somewhere that it was Mark Hamill who insisted that Anderson get credit for his Star Wars work

    Played Darth Vader and trained the dudes in Lord of the RIngs?

    yeah, I'm a fan.

    Me, too. And then I thought David Prowse.

    But RIP Bob Anderson all the same.

    Thought this would be about a Darwin Awards candidate.

    My nephews have enough light sabers to stage a re-enactment of the Clone Wars, and they ain't afraid to use 'em.

    Man, I just watched that. HOLY SHIT that was funny.
  8. I actually saw "Reclaiming the Blade" a couple months ago and thought the guy seemed really awesome. Pretty cool to watch him training Viggo Mortenson for his role as Aragorn in Lord of the Rings.

    I think typical movie swordfights are lame ... but this was well-choreographed. I was kind of hoping it ended in a tie.

    I would be happy to accomplish so little in life but to be known as a swordmaster.
