Party On, Anakin!

Last evening, I found myself surfing HBO. The two main choices were Star Wars III, Revenge of the Sith and Wayne's World 2.

So which did I choose? Well, I was going to say that it was the one that contained the classic, over-wrought cheese line, "Nooooooooo!!!!!!" until I remembered that both films, in fact, do. So instead, I'll say that I picked the one with the wierd naked Indian in it.

As to why, let's just say that I couldn't think of a better way to demonstrate my contempt for what George Lucas did with that franchise.

I don't know, I would have been hard pressed to make a choice. I mean, a movie with an essentially wooden actor ("Manakin") as opposed to a movie that portrays Jim Morrison as a lurching, babbling boob...???

I would have gone with Sith, but only so I could watch Obi-Wan be all HAWT!

Yeah, I figured that E Mac G action would sway you!

As for Jim Morrison being a "lurching, babbling boob," well, isn't that what he was anyway? I had a running argument with my college roommate who had a big Morrison poster. "He was a genious! A visionary!" he would say. "He was a doped-out punk!" I would respond. And so the matter rested.

Well, yes and no. Morrison was pretty smart, but he was a boob when he got into drugs.

Having talked to his "wife" Patricia Keneally, I learned a lot about him. One being that if he had exposed himself in Miami...everyone would have seen it.

Well, that's what she said!

"Flying is for droids!"

His lyrics always sounded really extemporaneous to me, and not in a good way. This is the ennnd... uh... fine feathered friend, the end.
