Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
Spent much of the evening arranging things. It isn't really cleaning because I didn't end up with fewer things or significantly more usable space, but I do feel better about some parts of my apartment than I have in years.

I watched the first ten episodes of the Cartoon Network Clone Wars series tonight. I hadn't realized it was just the first half of a longer series that wouldn't be continued until the Spring. Bastards!

Keanu is Constantine? Makes me sad.
That kid from Seaquest (no, not Ted) killed himself
Fixing Han v. Greedo = good, putting Hayden into Return of the Jedi = ?

I don't have cable, and if I did I don't think I could get Cartoon Network. There is a Canadian cartoon channell, but, anyway, I don't have cable.

That is very interesting Star Wars gossip....

Y'know, Lucas has so much money, he doesn't need more. And he doesn't need to ruin Star Wars IV, V, and VI anymore than he has, either.

And this is why my brothers had to end up buying me Ep I and II. I wouldn't pay this sucky schmuck any of my money.

Oooh, yes, I feel strongly about this.
And thanks for the heads up. ;)

I'm weak. I always rush out and buy the new stuff on DVD. I'm sure I'll buy the original series on DVD once it is (finally) released.

I don't really like this whole revisionist trend Lucas has helped develop, but I'm hopeful that he'll undo some of his mistakes for the next release (Han/Greedo, etc.) Not so sure about replacing Sebastian Shaw with Hayden Christensen. I wish they'd release both the original film and whatever new revised version Lucas decides to put together.

I still have my pre-special edition wide-screen VHS copies of the original trilogy.

Personally, it makes me angry to think he would replace every scene that Sebastian Shaw was in just for continuity. You can't do that to an actor. It would be like replacing Alec Guiness with Ewan MacGregor. I actually can't believe that this is true, it doesn't make sense to me. stupid.

Is he still alive? I can see him showing up naked in public, completely drunk. "You can't do thish ta me! I wash freakin' Anakin Shkywalker! I wash freakin' VADER! ME! Not shome punk assh little prick who couldn't act hish way outta a closhet!"

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Don't say things like that out loud or in public.

We don't want to give Lucas any more ideas.

I've heard Lucas say that he's revising the old stuff to go with his "Original Vision"... 20 years later is too damn late to change something that's damn near a freakin' religion to some people. Seriously. You can't go yanking the fans around like that. It just doesn't work that way.
I also don't think they should replace Sebastian Shaw. That would suck. That would be stupid. That would be disrespectful to Shaw himself even.

I envy your originals. I think my brothers have ours somewhere... And I mean Original as to immediately purchased after they were released affordably on VHS. Ep IV has a cool oversized package you have to slide out of an overcase. I want those copies, always have, but doubt I'll ever possess them.
