Remember Daniel Fleetwood? The 32-year-old was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and doctors don't expect him to make it until Christmas, sadly. The super Star Wars fan asked if he could watch the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens before it came out.
Fleetwood has been a Star Wars fan since he was eight. When he was 21 his local newspaper ran a story about how he camped outside his cinema for days in order to be the first person to get a ticket to Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. He had been the first person to get tickets for the previous two movies.
Today he got his wish. Disney studio execs showed up at his home to let him watch an unedited version of the new Star Wars. Via:
Daniel’s wife, Ashley, tells us he loved the movie. She can’t say much more because she had to sign a confidentiality agreement. She says they watched on their own TV, but it was played from Disney’s equipment — gotta make sure the flick doesn’t get jacked.
Abrams put in a phone call to Daniel before they rolled the movie, which Ashley says really made Daniel’s day.

You don’t have to be the same as everyone else – these gorgeous alternatives will give you a fashion edge, as well as being perfectly practical. Read more
If you’re a regular gym user, you won’t have failed to notice how most – if not all – of the other people working out around you are listening to music. You probably do it too. What is it about music, though that makes a work out so much more palatable? What does it do to our brains – and our bodies – to help us push through? Read more
When I watched Field of Dreams, the quote I left that movie with was "If you build it they will come." Once the baseball field was built, the ghosts found it. When the World Wide Web was new, that was fairly true. Since the mid-1990's, there has been tremendous and explosive growth in the web. Consider for a moment: there are an estimated 612 million websites in the world, but only 185 million websites are active according to TechLogon.com. Read more
