Podme Episode 3: AOTC

January 19, 2018

The third episode of Podme, the only podcast entirely devoted to Padmé Amidala, focuses on AOTC.  I haven’t listened yet so don’t yell if there’s something in it you don’t like.

Thrillist On The SuperShadow Saga

December 11, 2017

Naboo News caught Thrillist’s article on the prequel era’s purveyor of bogus spoilers, Super Shadow.  Remember him?  For the record, I generally avoided spoilers during the prequels but I knew NEVER to believe anything sourced from Super Shadow.  I used to roll my eyes at anyone citing this guy though he did manage to get a couple of (lucky) scoops.  I’m shocked his site was up until 2014!

SuperShadow made his mark in the climate of confusion that preceded the release of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. Though much of “Dark Side Prequel Rumors” has disappeared from the web, several pages of the site — black text slapped against a hideous banana yellow background — remain. The earliest news item, dated December 23, 1993, states “Episode I is set 37-and-a-half years prior to Episode 4 (Source: Greg Brady, Roc-em Soc-em Robots, Chad.)” It’s vintage SuperShadow, a demonstrably false fact (The Phantom Menacetakes place 32 years before A New Hope) culled from the insider knowledge of a random source. In this case, the eldest Brady son, pugilistic toy robots, and a good chunk of Central Africa.

 
Mike Zeroh seems to have picked up the baton but even he’s nowhere near as outrageous as SuperShadow was.

/r/prequelmemes Executes Order 66 On Bashers

June 1, 2017

Usually I don’t waste my time on stupid videos bashing the prequels.  Someone asked me to address a new anti-prequel video from WatchMojo.com and I wasn’t going to talk about it because who cares.  It’s the same lame crap we’ve put up with for 18 years.

But then along came /r/prequelmemes, quickly launching an attack on the haters.  The comment section on YouTube (I don’t as a rule link to basher videos) is full of prequel fans and as of writing it has 10,509 down votes as opposed to 2,551 up votes.  Feel free to look it up on YouTube and add to the carnage if you want.  I still don’t care what these fanboy jerks have to say about anything but I LOVE that somebody is finally turning the tables on them.
