Besides talking about Pulp, I want to write about things I see on the net. Not just what I’m experiencing in life at Pulp, everything I see on the internet; in better detail than I could ever do on Facebook or on Twitter.
One of the things I found on the “net” is the Star Wars funeral. A poor lad out in England had an inoperable brain tumor that claimed his life at a short age. The cool part, because his life expectancy was greatly shortened, he got to experience so much more than what I ever could in my life time and I plan to live for a long time. One of the things he wanted was to have a Star Wars themed funeral. Think about that: His last memory as a human was to have stormtroopers march him to his grave. That’s not only incredible cool, it’s incredibly sad; mainly because he won’t even get to witness this event. But, that’s exactly what happened and his parents were able to give that to him. Rather me go on and on about the story, I’ll let the mom tell you about his heartbreaking story:
His carriage was covered floral tributes, including one reading ‘Jedi’ and wreaths in the shape of a lightsaber, Yoda and R2-D2. Inside the church a brass band played the film’s The Binary Sunset music – known as Luke Skywalker’s theme – and the order of service read: ‘Master Jack Robinson, joined the force 1st April 2014′. Jack always had that cheeky grin on his face. Even when we were in hospital and I was sleeping next to him, he would poke me in the back with a lightsaber, then very quickly hid it and grin at me. In just four-and-a-half years, Jack achieved what many people spend a lifetime doing. He was only a little boy but he brought people together, from all over the world.
How cool is that? And here is some of the pictures from the funeral. This kid is a badass:
