Yeah, The Philosophy of Star Wars, it's pretty good, I think it might be on the special features of the newest release, that and the next show Star Wars Tech. 
"There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese."          -Bobby Finstock

i'm digging it. it's cool to get other peoples "philosophies" on certain things vs. hearing it from george lucas himself.

kevin smith says something like: i hafta love jabba the hut, one cause i'm shaped like him & two cause if it weren't for jabba we'd never see princess lea in a bikini.

totally.


he goes onto say that Jabba is sexy because anybody who just sits around and has things done in front of them like that is rich and powerful enough to lay around and get served all day is just sexy.

coolest pop up book ever. 

Star Wars is the great american "epic"...i argue that media formats have changed culture enough to encompass more than texts and poetry into the classic epic formula...in medias res, clearly defined heroes, yadda yadda.
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.

The Empire Strikes Back is my all-time favorite movie.

episodes I, II, and III are like post-hiatus phish.

III was the only good new one IMO.

if I had to pick a fave I'd probably go w/ II but they're all pretty painful to watch.  Seeing episode I for the first time was one of the most disappointing things ever.

Word, II would be my pick too, the last 45 minutes almost conjured up the old Star Wars magic.

III really pissed me off though, it was supposed to be the best one of the entire series but was just more of the same bad dialog and poor acting.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

The beginning of III is the best of new star wars...that battle is just enormous on the big screen.  Of the old school, Empire is the best, cause Luke turns into the little bitch he is...and Vader rocks his ass.

Anyone ever think there is a reason episodes IV, V, and VI were released first?  Think we would be discussing this stuff if it went the other way around?  I certainly don't.  Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of this series.  But I just don't think it would have taken like it has if the first couple episodes were released first.

Maybe if they replaced a bandmember and played the same one setlist, night after night.

Lucas deserves a Sarlacc treatment. It's like he colorized his own damn movie or something. The King of the Assholes.

My last: Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix. Awesome.
