Out of the Blue

Well I'm sorry to say the BlueTower is black thanks to Sandy. We lost power overnight, and I don't have an estimate of when to expect it to return, though historically they tend to be pretty quick at restoring electricity after outages here. Otherwise we are fine, and hope all the rest of you are equally safe. I don't picture being able to update the site through my phone, so I'm afraid I'm offline for the time being. Apologies, hopefully this will all be sorted soon enough.

EPISODE 7: DA RISE-A OF DA JAR-JAR


Too soon?

The rise of Darth Ooohoo-mesa-so-sparkly!

I know it's too much to ask, but really what's the chances of EP7 actually being about Thrawn?

Well, since we're talking campfires, let's talk ghost stories (what's a campfire without some ghost stories?). Ghost stories as in horror movies that is.

In the spirit of Halloween it is a yearly tradition for me to watch a bunch of horror movies, both old and new. Last night I watched "Absentia" on Netflix, and despite its low budget I thought it was a damn fine movie. The ending credits said that the movie was a kickstarter project and listed all of the names of the biggest donors in the credits. I thought that was pretty neat.

Wow, I'm amazed he sold it for that relatively little money. The Star Wars brand alone has to be worth more than 4 billion dollars? They get all the other lucasfilm stuff too.

I'm assuming they sold out for 100 billion, but then Lucas had to pay them 96 billion to take episodes 1-3 as part of the package.

Hahahaha. Jar Jar Binks and Jake Lloyd probably cost him 40 billion dollars each

Yeah, you are right. I spoke quickly, and forgot it is all based on a Grimms tale. Oh well. I still think Disney can't do any worse that Lucas was doing...

it's an INFINITELY good thing for Star Wars fans that he will no longer be involved ever again.

Note that Lucas will still be a consultant.

I am amazed at how ill-prepared some of my relatives in New York and the surrounding areas were for this. My bro-in-law has no power, nothing to eat, and no means of communicating because he didn't charge his cell phone before hand or buy one of those battery powered cell chargers. He also can't go very far because he didn't fill his cars up beforehand and the gas stations that are even open are only taking cash, but of course he didn't get any cash from the bank before the storm. He has one flashlight and some birthday candles though.

Maybe that's why the news goes on and on about storms beforehand - people are dense.


People just never believe things can get that badly. It's incredible how some people just see a hurricane coming and are just like "Ah, it'll be over in a few hours. What can happen?"

Unbelievable... I (well, really my wife) have a huge emergency pack, basically, that's ready to go every time a tornado warning comes calling.

I haven't seen "Snow White and the Huntsman" but it looked promising (it's actually in the mail from Netflix at this moment).

Movie has nothing to do with Disney.

On the one hand, I almost feel a sense of pity for George. To sign over virtually your lifes work to megacorp has to be a little depressing.

On the other, if it's one thing the SW franchise needs, it's a fresh new infusion of blood. It's both thrilling and a little scary that he's suddenly letting go of the reins, after years of strangling the franchise.

It was the right move. But I'm sure it wasn't easy to do.
