We've all been affected by the economic recession in some way or another. Nobody is safe from the hardships that come with lost employment, salary reductions, or depleted retirement funds.
Even notorious bounty hunters.
An article posted over on TheVillager.com takes a look at a fellow Star Wars fan from Harlem, New York named Nathan Stodola who is an accomplished accordion player with a deep love for the #1 bounty hunter in the galaxy - Boba Fett (sorry Cad Bane, you're not in Fett's league yet).
"Playing everything from the “Star Wars” theme music to classical pieces at his spot in Washington Square, Nathan Stodola is the self-dubbed “Renegade Accordion — New York’s only musical bounty hunter.” It’s probably a safe bet to say that he is, in fact, the only accordionist around who is obsessed with the mysterious “Star Wars” character Boba Fett. Plus, the homemade helmet also helps keep the heat in when it gets cold, he noted. The 26-year-old Harlem resident has a master’s in mechanical engineering from Columbia, but is currently unemployed. “So I’m doing this while I get another master’s in transportation engineering at City College,” he said. He has played piano since fourth grade, and picked up the accordion five years ago. “The left hand is new,” he said, of the learning curve for the handheld instrument, which has piano-like keys for the right hand. Judging by the dollar bills that passersby were dropping in his case, people liked what they were hearing."
