I just discovered that Lukas Haas makes music. If you don’t know who Lukas Haas is, he’s an actor. Excuse me, actorSLASHmusician. He’s probably best known for being Leonardo Dicaprio’s lanky doe-eyed best friend. His music is okay, I guess.
However, I have been in love with Lukas Haas ever since he played the little kid in Solarbabies. If you don’t know what Solarbabies is, then don’t fucking talk to me.
Solarbabies was my favorite movie when I was little. I made my mom rent this about 9,000 times.
Here is the plot description of Solarbabies. I’ve highlighted the elements of this film that I think are most worth noting:
In a future in which most water has disappeared from the Earth, we find a group of children, mostly teenagers, who are living at an orphanage run by the despotic rulers of the new Earth. The group in question plays a hockey based game on roller skates and is quite good. It has given them a unity that transcends the attempts to bring them to heel by the government. Finding an orb of special power, they find it has unusual effects on them. They escape from the orphanage (on skates) and try to cross the wasteland looking for a place they can live free as the stormtroopers search for them and the orb.

So in case you were wondering, yes I have been this fucking cool my entire life. And now you know about Solarbabies, and now you can talk to me again.
I can’t believe someone posted THE ENTIRE MOVIE in 11 parts on YouTube. And I can’t believe NATHAN FROM HEROES plays Darstar. I can’t believe Lukas Haas is still so adorable and he covered a Beatles song and it wasn’t half bad. And I can’t believe I don’t have a boyfriend that I could puppy-eye into buying this for me.
My dad is in the ICU. So I know I promised everyone that I would go to karaoke tonight and be awesome, but I think it would be more awesome if I visited him and watched Lost and actually slept tonight. And it would be awesomer if you could say a prayer for him.
And it would be awesomest if you didn’t roll your eyes at that last sentence. I know that stuff bugs some of my friends, but you know what bugs me? Feeling helpless. Helpless and hopeless. I just ask because I hope it helps. Use The Secret or cross your fingers if you’d like. Toe-may-toe, toe-mah-toe.
If I’m attempting to convert anybody to anything, it’s the magic of Solarbabies. Observe:
