This week on Ages 3 and Up! we were joined by a special guest, DJ Darth Vader (a.k.a my son, Kid-O). DJ Darth paid tribute to his bionic roots by speaking robot instead of English, and requested I play orchestral tunes in his native tongue. To the untrained ear, it sounded a lot like a six year old saying “Bleep Bloop Beeep Beep Bip,” but I assure you that it WAS a robot language.
