The Stormtrooper Chronicles

StormtrooperOne of the web sites I like to go to is Danny Choo‘s.  To put it mildly, he’s someone who really likes to enjoy life. He currently lives in Tokyo and he has a really interesting blog that I regularly visit. His site has posts about Anime, Modeling, Ipods , etc.

In July of 2005, he purchased a set of Star Wars Stormtrooper Armor. Yep, you read that right! He’s been kind enough to document his trials and travails. 

I Highly recomend reading about it, His journey is very funny and he’s taken lots of photographs and some Video. The most recent Entry "Stormtrooper haircut" made me laugh out loud.

His "Stormtrooper in Tokyo – Episode 2 : Akihabara" posting is great too. 

For a complete Stormtrooper Summary on Danny Choo’s site See here.

He’s also got excelent tips for people switching from Windows to a Mac.
