Well, That's Just Great
I think we’re all missing the master plan…

First gain the rights to Marvel properties.

Then LucasArts.

Obviously Disney’s plan is to make sure nothing can stop them from making “Howard The Donald Duck!”

So people are concerned that Disney will destroy the integrity of the Star Wars franchise.

Really?

Really?

Really?

Really?

Really?

What EXACTLY are you concerned is going to happen?

But in all honesty, George Lucas is an idiot, and Return of the Jedi was our warning.
Culby. Who is better than me at being concise.

"Hardware Wars"

Yet again,the internet machine allows me to access things that deeply influenced me but that I thought I’d never see again.

"Hardware Wars" was on heavy rotation on HBO in 1978. That was a time when the main selling point of cable TV was no commercials (I still am angry that at some point they convinced us to pay for TV with commercials). This 13 minute film was the perfect filler between films.

I really think this was my first introduction to parody, and maybe to sarcasm and irony. Today we would politely call it “uneven” but it definitely shaped me so it has a place here.

My favorite gags are the Chewbacca Muppet; the tag line, “You’ll Laugh, You’ll Cry, You’ll Kiss Three Bucks Good-Bye!” (and yes that’s Paul Frees); and this exchange:

Augie “Ben” Doggie: Waaaauuuuggghhh!!!

Fluke Starbucker: Jeepers! What is it, Augie Ben Doggie? Did you feel a great disturbance in the Force? As if millions of voices cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced?

Augie “Ben” Doggie: No, just a little headache.

My favorite “I have a bad feeling about this” delivery in a George Lucas film.

Delivered by me.

In the audience.

Ten minutes into “The Phantom Menace.”

Star Cops

Lawyer: Sir, I represent Lucasfilm and Mr. Lucas and he has some concerns with the Robocop/Droid image on your blog.
Blogger: Uh oh. I’ll take it down.
Lawyer: No, sir. We’re just curious. Where did you get a still image from the upcoming release of “Episode IV :The 3D Special Edition?”
Blogger: But that makes no…
Lawyer: He renamed Tatooine, “DetroiTooine.”
Blogger: …
Lawyer: As someone with a lot of experience with Mr. Lucas I suggest you don’t think about it too much.

Pure. Fucking. Gold.

Yes…this video is what will really be presented on Blu-Ray.

What follows is what I can only imagine must have happened.

Two Years Ago at Skywalker Ranch:

Producer of Blue Ray Edition Of The Original Star Wars Trilogy And Prequel Trilogy: You called, Mr. Lucas?

George Lucas: Why would I call you Mr. Lucas? I’m Mr. Lucas!

Producer:

Lucas:

Producer: You needed something, sir?

Lucas: I’ve been thinking about making a change…

Producer: Oh good lord…

Lucas: Hmmm?

Producer: Nothing, sir. Another improvement? How…wonderful for the fans.

Lucas: Indeed. I’ve heard a lot of complaints about how Darth Vader screams, “Nooooooo!” at the end of Sith.

Producer: Some do find it a bit…uh…cheesy.

Lucas: And out of character. I’ve heard some fans say that the whole scene just doesn’t feel right. Like Darth Vader didn’t sound like Darth Vader.

Producer: Sounds like whoever wrote it never even saw the first three movies, yes!

Lucas:

Producer: Um…that’s what THEY say. I’d never…

Lucas: Anyway, we need to make a change.

Producer: Well, I actually think that’s a good idea. As opposed to the changes to the original trilogy, this sounds like something the fans could support becau…

Lucas: Yup. Dub Vader saying, “Nooooooo!” at the end of Jedi.

Producer:

Lucas: Then when he says it in Sith, it will feel right!

Producer: For the love of…

Lucas: Now off with you. I need to put on my Scrooge McDuck costume and swim around in my vault!

Ducky: Wow.

Me: Sorry, Duck. It wasn’t your fault. It had nothing to do with you.

Ducky: That was loud. I don’t think I’ve ever heard you yell like that…
