I, Lobot: A Day In The Life of Lando Calrissian’s Assistant
The Insomniac   |  

Week of Geek: The Empire Strikes Back 30th Anniversary

I, LobotWe all know the story so well: The young scrappy boy who shares an intimate kiss with his sister before going to learn “˜magic’ from a muppet in a swamp, the space princess sexually assaulted by a drug smuggler in a broom closet, the back-stabbing Colt .45 pitchman, and of course the reunion with the estranged father who then maims his son.

But what of the unsung heroes of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, the little people who charge the blasters, reset the flyers, and get shot down by the AT-ATs?

Ladies and gentleman, here’s a peek at a day in the life of Lobot, Lando Calrissian’s faithful assistant on Cloud City.

6:30 a.m: Wake up, unplug head from charger.

6:45 a.m: Yoga, Tai Chi, and Rhythmic Gymnastics.

7:15 a.m: Hop in the shower and shave face, shave head, brush teeth, and buff headset.

7:45 a.m: Download Mr. Calrissian’s itinerary, new episodes of Lost, and the newest album by Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes.

7:55 a.m: Escort the hos out of Mr. Calrissian’s room and offer them the usual settlement package.

6:00 p.m: Prepare Mr. Calrissian’s dinner of stewed sarlacc burgers. Crack open his Colt 45. (I’m not saying that he can’t have a good time without Colt 45, but I’m saying why take the chance?)

  4. I always wondered if Lobot was Plug and Play compatible, Usb 2.0?
