Now I know why Carrie Fisher lost all the weight recently. I guess Mark and Harrison will be getting face lifts or botox next?

My husbands' brain exploded when he saw this picture..He had goose bumps like a 12 year old girl at a Justin Beiber concert.

So, I finally saw Sherry at the 16:52 mark. Lovely feathered bangs, my dear.

True story:
I've never seen Star Wars.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Ware, are you North Korean? Does Cleveland have a zone of exclusion around it?

aemish said...

aemish said...

Gawd they just had an episode of The Goldberg's wrapped around a Millennium Falcon *this week*

aemish said...

I'm sorry @WareCat but I'm gonna have to toss a coconut at your head and just hope I miss

Seven of Eleven said...

@aemish, how was Ender's Game? I loved that book when I was younger and I'd hate to see it butchered in a movie.

discoflux said...

And there was a great rumbling as Star Wars fanatics of the world ripped in two - fraught and torn as they couldn't figure out if they were excited or outraged...

trogdor said...

Hahah...this reminds me of funny story - I had spent some time with the Marines of HMLA-169th about 10 years ago. We were all in one of their hangars in Pendleton and two marines got into an argument about Star Wars 1-3 being much worse than 4-6. All of a sudden, one of the engineers (about 30 years old) sticks his around the corner and says he can't contribute to the convo because he's never seen them. The entire hangar came to a grinding halt and their Sergeant runs over and accuses him of being "Un-American and Un-patriotic" for not having seen Star Wars. I found out a few weeks later that the Sergeant had ended up procuring a projector and all 6 films and made the entire fighter wing watch them in a weekend before they re-deployed to Iraq. They had to say the pledge of allegiance before each film.

Cast? You mean Chewy was an actor? There goes all my childhood illusions.

aemish said...

It's kind of even better to watch them today since you don't have to wait for years for the sequel.. you can just have your own private marathon

Soylent Green!

Sorry, but this is another bucket list flick for you :p

Renoblondee said...

My 9 year old is obsessed.

And Khloe Kardashian's dreams of getting a part in a major motion picture.

aemish said...

We are not going to turn Star Wars into propaganda today yo. Particularly in light of the fact that WE are the ones building the Death Star. Hellooo

Seven of Eleven said...

Team Picard!

I'm sad to say, I've never sat through an entire Star Wars movie without falling asleep. I stayed awake for ginger Obi-Wan, though.

I tried really hard not to SQUEEEEEEEEE out loud at work. I failed.

Then again, if they really wanted me to work they'd fix the f#@%ing printers.

WareCat said...

For sum reason I oddly feel closer to u now, Jerk.

Count Jerkula said...

@Warecat: I think giving chicks odd feelings is my specialty.

Meanie Rhysie, Enty #27 said...

@WareCat, come sit with me, child. I have never seen a Star Wars movie, either. ;)

WareCat said...

Sweetness, Meanie!
I mentioned in an earlier post I watched the Today show.
They had a Little House on the Prairie reunion!
Of course I thought of u.
I mean, duh!

Sherry said...

I think I've only seen one myself.

Allis said...

When I was in college I was so blindly in love with a boy I waited in line with him for seven hours to get tix to Phantom Menace. He played his flute the entire wait. Idk, he gave good head tho.

Shotinthedark said...

With you there. I was forced to watch / study the first movie for media studies. I skipped a lesson just so I could still say I hadn't seen it,... at least not all the way through. What I did see didn't do it for me though.

fancyscreenname said...

Oh, FFS, Charlie. Where? YouTube? Can L&O b viewed on YouTube?

I must see this dammit! Lol
;^)@sherry ...

7-9 cannot possibly be any worse than 1-3.

Alita said...

Sigh @Reno, a 9yo liking Star Wars usually means one thing - JarJar freaking Binks. JarJar alone makes me want to stab latter-day George Lucas.

Studio exec: so we're going to make billions of dollars with the new Start Wars movies, George. Cool, huh!

George: MOAR MONEY

Exec: but ... George ... I told you - it'll be billions!

George the Hutt: MOAR, mmm. Uga. Spasteelia a bunkadunka.

Exec: well okay, we could add an annoying character that kids will like and then merchandise it to hell. But I've gotta warn you - it makes you a teensy bit of a sell out. And the original fans will tear you a new hole on the Internet.

George: Ho ho ho, luncho, koos lee-at nigh!

*George Lucas can speak the language of the Hutts.

Alita said...

Seven :(

Alita said...

Confused ... was that a euphemism?

Alita said...

Erik - buying SW from Lucas was the only time in ever that the world collectively heaved a sigh of relief and said "gee is a good thing Disney bought that franchise."

If anybody is going to watch Start Wars fresh, definitely use the machete order. What I linked to is long, but for any vaguely interested Star Wars fan, worth a read. If you're not a fan, just watch in the order he suggests.

Seven of Eleven said...

I know, boo, I know.

I blame it on George. I wasn't old enough to see the original Star Wars movies in the theaters, so the first one I saw was the one with Jar-Jar Binks. My brain went NOPE and never recovered.

Alita said...

Listen Seven, for I've got my serious face on. That's NOT okay.

I wasn't a fancy movie cinema-going embryo/glint type either. A pretentious scene if you ask me. But I still pay homage to the nerds of yesteryear. Except TOS, that I hate.

Can I at least toast you a succulent mimosa on that? You hate TOS right? Give me something?

Alita said...

Sorry I forgot to say this:


:(((((((

Alita said...

And this:
:'(((

Alita said...

And now this:

>:'(((


It is a complex set of emotions I am trying to convey.

Seven of Eleven said...

@alita, with fiery of a thousand tribble suns shines my snickering of TOS.

Seven of Eleven said...

@alita, and also no mimosa deserves to go untoasted!

Alita said...

I'm going to try to work through this. I still like you and stuff. Well, like, my 'rational' mind says you're seriously awesome - I can remind myself of that! As I drink a slow, cold, lonely mimosa and raise it gently to the Rebellion. Sigh - a cold wind is blowing. I guess that's why it cuts so deeply though. Not the pain - softly, shush, it's just the wind.

It's going to take time. I'm not going to lie, it's pretty tribbling.

Renoblondee said...

Ah contraire @Alita. My 9 yr old loves the original 3! He's not big on the newer ones, but likes Anakin.

Alita said...

Ahh that's different @Reno. He sounds like he has taste! You should keep him ;)

Erik said...

@Alita thanks for the link.
