LEGO T.V. Special

June 15, 2011

Given that I see Clone Wars characters in the banner, I’ll post here about an upcoming LEGO Star Wars t.v. special set to air “Fall 2011.” The info comes from ComingSoon.net; no official announcement yet with an air date or where you can see it.

Fan Quote Of The Day

June 14, 2011

From obi-rob kenobi on TFN’s message board:

These people celebrate the backlash of 1999 more than the actual films. They simply are more interested in keeping the hate alive longer than keeping the FILMS alive. Stop fooling yourselves.

If we could just stop this foolish war on the whole first half of the story and just agree that Star Wars is more powerful as an epic 6 movie saga then just 2 or 3 movies then no one would have to be worried. Star Wars as a whole is a good thing, people simply need to stop trying to destroy it.

Screened.com has an interesting little essay on Oedipal themes in the saga (though it does have some f-bombs). Do check it out.

Offline 6/10-6/13

June 9, 2011

I’ll be offline 6/10-6/13, so no updates until at least Tuesday. In the meantime, check out the Star Wars Weekends video on starwars.com…you’ll see Ray Park, someone who made her own Darth Maul Mickey Ears hat (!!), Matt Lanter and Ashley Eckstein of Clone Wars fame, and another gal who got Anakin tattooed on her foot. Gotta love it.

ROTS Poem

June 8, 2011

The Forcecast posted a poem about ROTS written by a young fan for a homework assignment. I give it an A (had he spelled “Obi-Wan” correctly, it would have been an A+).

Unexpected PT References

June 6, 2011

While reading the book “Weird Hollywood” (I know, a redundancy), there was reference to a real life Watto’s Junkyard. Apparently, in Los Angeles there is a junkyard called Norton Sales Inc. full of spare parts taken from planes, rockets, and other aerospace/industrial supplies. According to the book, locals and customers have taken to calling the place Watto’s Junkyard.

Meanwhile, I picked through some RedPlum coupons from the mail and saw in ad for Newman’s Own Lemonade a lemon with the quotation, “Exsqueeze me?” Now, I know it’s a pun for lemonade but we all know who originated that expression, don’t we ;)?
