Why not just spend the 1000 or so hours it takes to make this spending time with her? She may like Minecraft, but what if you looked at each other instead of screens?
I had a friend when I was a kid who had leukemia and the time he spent outside of chemo involved a lot of Nintendo.

According to the website, when it's finished it'll just be the minecraft sounds, which is a bummer but it avoids any legal issues. But if you sync up the original (pretty sure he means the 1977 one and not the Special edition) it supposedly syncs up perfectly, scene for scene. I'm kind of excited for this like I was when you heard that Dark Side of the Moon syncs up with Wizard of Oz, or when I had a Zaireeka listening party with all four CDs playing at once.
I love Minecraft but I usually half-assedly build a house, get bored and kill a few cows and pigs, then build a tower out of dirt to the top of the world and jump to my death out of guilt.
The most ambitious project I built was probably my mountain-sized sprite statue of Pedobear. It's not the biggest thing I've built, or the craziest, or the most intricate. It was, however, built using only the most rudimentary of tools (many of my later works, like the walled city-state of Agendor and one of the residential districts in my capital city, were at least partially helped along with MCEdit and/or the Fly command). I started Kuma's Forum way back in Alpha, when there were no colored wools, so I had to make do with "natural" materials - dirt, stone, sand, Netherrack, and a bit of obsidian. Due to build-height limits, I had to excavate a massive ampitheater to have enough room to construct it, and since I didn't use any console commands or flying cheats, all the work had to be done up close, by hand, using a massive system of dirt scaffolding, torch coordinate markers, and a pile of graph paper. It took me longer than it takes to beat some AAA games!
I can't imagine building something this size.
I do have a few complaints, though. That nacelle viewport, those planets, and the Death Star at 0:40 do not appear to be made in Minecraft.
(sorry, I get very Ulillillia when it comes to Minecraft.)
In case anyone is curious. You can sort of make out the Pedobear near the center of this shot. The island to the right was my original spawn-point base, the mountaintop castle in the background is my "luxury" home (for day to day purposes, I usually use a smaller fortification on the western tip of my original island), and the collection of Tudor-style houses near the foreground is that residential district I mentioned; the first block of houses was hand-built, and the rest were copy-pasted from that original model (with a about ten minutes of in-game detailing work each).
The Japanese temple on the left (the heart of a monastic order of warrior-priestesses based on the Sailor Scouts) took a long time to build, too, especially the roof! And the Coliseum on the central hill was hand-built, but I've yet to finish all the interior shops, animal cages, and gladiator cells. It looks cool from a distance, but the entrance was improperly planned, and I'm not sure its sweeping tower-bridge is an optimal design for a high-traffic urban amphitheater. It's OK, though, because the entrance was made the way it was in order to "fit" on top of a hill, packed to the brim with previously constructed buildings that the city council considered to be "historic", and were thus unwilling to tear down. I think the awkward tightness gives my city a more organic, Old-World feel, but if I ever build another one (in my second most populated city to the south, perhaps?) then I'll probably spend a lot more time planning the "flow" of traffic and a lot less time worrying about line-of-sight and constructing perfect circles out of square Lego blocks.
How do you even get a copy of the 1977 version of Star Wars to find out? I was under the impression that it hasn't been sold in decades and I doubt the betamax copy my dad had still works.
The Laserdisc version was eventually quietly released on DVD (as a "bonus feature" of the Special Edition edits), although the transfer is pretty shitty.
Some terrorist media criminals took the non-special edition special features versions (there are originals of all three movies) from the special edition DVDs, resized and encoded them for 16:9, and put them up on Drone Target Is You websites for mass murderers who download entertainment things without shitting a bar of gold first.
The website links to this one,
so I assume that's the one it syncs up with, for whatever it's worth. This was years ago but I found a guy in Chicago who was selling the trilogy on DVDR mostly because he was pissed about the DVDs not including the original (to me it wasn't a big deal, Jabba was cool in CG, but since I was born around ROTJ's theatrical release I never got to see them on the big screen so I was biased.) They were the converted LD ones and he also included like every TV special, Sesame Street appearance, if it was Star Wars related and made during Star Wars Fever, it was on there. And he only charged 5 bucks if you came to his house.
He also had a "bonus" dvd which was a dvdcam of Revenge of the Sith.. but anyway I've got 'em and could just convert the audio to mp3, but I'm guessing someone will come up with an easier way. If there's one thing Minecraft fans are good at, it's being crafty.

Minecraft. Star Wars. The Internet.
Nothing personal, IZ, I just hate minecraft and the newer CoDs and WoW and DotA and all sorts of other games that are ruining the younger generations.
I pretty much stopped playing videogames at Return to Zork and Duke3D. After that nothing interested me for more than 5 minutes. Minecraft on the other hand fascinates me for what people can do with it: You can level up your character in WoW, but it's the World of Warcraft. Call of Duty is a war game. I don't even know what DotA is.
Return to Zork bothered me because it ruined my imagination: instead of reading I had a set world and various D list actors. But it was still fun. Duke3D was great because of the Build Engine: while still a shooter, you could kind of make it what you wanted. Minecraft is great because you can do whatever you want with very little instructions. "I'm going to breed a bunch of ocelots, feed them fish until they are cats and trap them in a house full of water and blow it up with TNT" or "I'm going to recreate Star Wars Shot for Shot." Other options are there I'm sure, but I see why schools are using it as an educational tool in comupter classes. We had "I'm gonna get to the end of the Oregon Trail" or "I'm gonna see how quickly I can kill off the rest of my family and then wander aimlessly through the woods killing thousands of pounds of buffalo. My tombstone will say Peperoni and Chease and my name was Andy. Remember Andy."
Have you ever played any of those games, Gmork? Because Minecraft is nothing like CoD, WoW, or DotA.

I can't remember which update it was (one of Mojang's "update that will change the world and everything you know about minecraft.. uhh you can ride the horses now is what we meant to say that's it") but it completely fucked up my server. I didn't really care because it was just me and a few of my friends and half the time I'd be out and they'd get drunk and put me on top of the world when I was asleep or I'd blow up their house. But imagine one thing going wrong here. D:
