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

I recently read the Wookiepedia entry for what happened to Jar Jar.

It's pretty good: he lives on the streets of Theed as a destitute bum forced to perform as a street clown because all the Gungans and Naboo blame him for the rise of the Empire.

And that's stuff they've written SINCE Disney took over, so it's not any of that "Legends" crap.
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?

It's a good thing Leia was adopted otherwise she might share the legacy of blame that came with her mother being responsible for the Emperor coming to power.

Haha. You'd think it would be much MUCH worse if left to the fans...

I saw Star Wars in 1977. I was a space cadet for several years but the bloom came off the rose wayyyy before Legends. I think it was when me and my friends waited 6 hours in line for Return of the Jedi and we were the only ones there for 5 1/2 hours. I found the RotJ trading cards boring and I didn't buy any of the toys. Someone making fun of my RotJ tshirt at school helped.

Been thinking about it and outside of Episode 1, I can’t really remember any piece of music from the prequel trilogy.

To be fair, I remember some of the music used in Episode 2, but that's only because it was also used in the Star Wars game Knights of the Old republic.

Can't find a gif version, but it's still worth posting.

I am excited as hell for this, like other fans I don't think I subscribe to the "Dark Rey" theory, but when a movie is good, I'm more than willing to let it tell its story to the point to which I can enjoy it.

A laser-corkscrew might be the most useless thing I've ever seen..

The last time I saw one of those was on an Airplane.
