PICTURE OF THE DAY


This is from the comic Blue Milk Special, written by a guy who knows more about Star Wars than anyone ought to. He gently pokes fun at the story and the characters, including this bit which shows that Lucas rewrote so much in the newest movies that the original trilogy barely makes sense.

For example, its funny how Luke aged about 15 years between Revenge of the Sith (episode III) and A New Hope (the original star wars) and Obi wan aged about 40.

There was a prequel trilogy to Star Wars?

/semi tongue-in-cheek

just like the Highlander sequels. Technically they exist...

Speaking of Star War... allow me to reiterate my comment from yesterday about Hawkins endorsing Newt after spending a considerable amount of effort getting an "Anyone But Mitt" campaign off the ground:

It's like if a Star Wars fan went on a tirade about how Jar Jar Binks ruined the entire franchise, and then you found out they had Ewok posters hanging all over their walls.

Yeah I did have a problem with that. There's just not enough difference between the two candidates to justify endorsing one and fighting to stop the other. I can see preferring one over the other (or, at least despising one less than the other, such as in my case) but not like that.
