    • Yep, I have a deviantART gallery. But it's pretty cheerful drawings-- no angsty poems or black-and-white photos of wooden chairs.

Yeah, I think I'd be a little more sympathetic to what young Ben did next if this is how it went down.
I used to have an image here, but Photobucket got cheap about remote linking. I guess I'll have to think of something witty instead. Which I will. Later. It caught me by surprise, in all honesty. It's hard to be clever on command, I mean, YOU try it. Be funny: NOW! See, tough. So, gimme a bit, 'kay?

And I can Confirm that the NTSC Blu-Ray mp3 syncs with the ripped Standard DVD for reauthors (and since I haven't mastered the art of Blu-Ray reauthors yet :-[ ) 8)

Watched the Rifftrax.  Great stuff. 

Just wanted to point out something about the whole "Fin is just a Janitor?" story element that people were hung up on.  This is approximately what was said: "What did you do when you were based here?"  "I was a janitor".  I don't think the writers intended to imply that he was always a janitor, just when he was based there.  But it's easy to see how the audience (including myself) took it as "I am a janitor". 

The real reason he's a janitor is so that the call back to the trash compactor scene that comes up a few minutes later connects a little better, with Fin having a reason to know where a garbage shoot is.

I think it's also to show him as more of a regular blue collar "common man" for people to identify and sympathize with.

And possibly it is a response to Kevin Smith's dialogue in Clerks, questioning things like if the Empire would need independant contractors to do the blue collar jobs.
