Okay, so D.C. Cab isn't one of the best movies from the 80s. It's also not one of the worst, and even if it were, it would have been worth it to see a perky, fluffy-headed, slightly bouncy Adam Baldwin being so goddamn Adorable.

It made me think, though: he would have been a tad young to play him, but how fuckin' badass might he have made Luke Skywalker?

So, something occurred to me. Leia snogs the nearest guy (who happens to be her brother, but that's beside the point) just to piss Han off.

One wonders how she attained a rather high diplomatic status at such a young age. :)

"Fans of the show LOST got an earful of Star Wars references last Wednesday, courtesy of the character Hurley, whose trek back in time to 1977 has inspired him to write The Empire Strikes Back for George Lucas."

THIS is why I don't watch Lost any more.

I take back whatever I may have said in the past about the old Star Wars trilogy having poor cinematography, because I just finished a fairly wicked video.

Also I have footage for my Evil Dead one now. Hail to the king baby!

While I'm not a monogamous kind of fan where I obsessively focus all my attention on a single fandom, I do tend to do one at a time. Normally. At the moment, however, I have three fandoms competing for my attentions; one recent, one not-so-recent, and one decidedly fucking un-recent. Respectively, Atlantis, X-Files, and original Star Wars. It's getting a bit confusing.

(Better late than never reaction to the) Atlantis finale! Carson, you've come a long way. Sure, John already flew the city, and that was freakishly awesome, but Carson got to fly it BACK TO EARTH. I am SO proud of him. Ronon, thanks for not staying dead. Teyla, thanks for... whatever it was you did. Major Paul Davis, thanks for being there. SERIOUSLY. I didn't see his name and freaked out when he appeared on screen. We hadn't seen him much in, like, forever.

John, Rodney, thanks for being beyond awesomely awesome characters. And to John for getting whumped on a regular basis (but points deducted for not wearing enough leather).

I will seriously miss this show.
Can't wait for the movie. :D

I miss my Star Wars books.

Notes to myself regarding a Star Wars fic idea I've had rattling around in my brain for about seven years or so:

"get rid of OCs, at least most of them. Re-invent the bad guy. Less rising from the grave."

Let that one trip your wtf circuits for a bit.

Dammit. I just may have to continue that Star Wars fanfic I started four years ago. People sure liked it; I still get reviews every now and then. I'm going to stick to real fucking canon, though, the best I can. Aside from the AU part.

He'll probably wake up later and think, 'What the HELL was I thinking?!' Or something like that.

First I need to read the damn thing again.

And as a special treat, a fragment from a Storm Hawks fanfic summary:

That's not a warning, that's an invitation.

It's been ten years (or more) and I still can't get over it. How freaking cool is Wedge Antilles?

He's the coolest thing in the universe.

(Except maybe for the Doctor.)

What I don't get about the special editions of Star Wars is this: if they could change all that other stuff, why couldn't they fix Denis Lawson's name so it's spelled right?

Why does everybody think that the Star Wars universe has 'healers'? And what's up especially with the Jedi always having them? Did we ever see a flesh-and-blood doctor in any of the movies? No. They were all droids. Every one of them. Just like the Jedi were all peacekeepers. Anybody who thinks otherwise is making shit up.

I've also noticed, in the case of the books, at any rate, a tendency to make the Jedi able to do just about anything. Here's what I've seen from official movie canon: telekinesis (like WOAH), some empathic ability, suggestion, sometimes visions, sort of a 'spidey' sense, some other random shit, and a HELL of a lot of physical and mental training, including a mess of conflict resolution. They don't do healing. They certainly can't fly (this means you, Kevin J. Anderson). They aren't. Freaking. Superman.

Call me a canon nazi. I feel like people mess these things up.

When I first really got into Star Wars, I caught up on all the books that were out in about a year or so. And I reread many of them more than once. But it's taken me two years and I'm about halfway through New Jedi Order. And there are nine new books that just finished being released that I haven't even bought yet. I used to be so good at reading books, even when I was busy. What the hell happened?

Fortunately, as I discovered last summer, my fandoms may go dormant, but rarely ever do they die.

Also, finally saw Sky Captain and the World ot Tomorrow. I likes. There's just something about the 1940s that I've come to love. The clothes, the hair, the machines, the personalities... it's just tops. That goes for the 30s as well. And Jude Law is hawt in any time period.

Two days till the Who season finale. *crosses fingers and prays to high heaven that her favorites won't bite the big one*

Hopefully seeing Wanted tomorrow and then hanging with a bunch of other nerds with fireworks. And Apples to Apples. *glee*

FYI, my Firefly/Serenity video kicks some gorram ass. I've watched the series and the movie again, because I missed them a lot. I wish like hell there was more. My favorite character changed - not like I really had a definitely favorite, but Wash was pretty close, but then he and Simon duked it out and Simon won. But hell, he's still alive, so he's already got a leg up. And I always did like Simon.

I saw a preview online for the next Pirates movie, and I nearly died. I want May to come so bad it hurts. Then, of course, is July, with the Order of the Phoenix movie and THE LAST FREAKING HARRY POTTER BOOK. Summer is going to rock so hard.

I've started where I left off in the New Jedi Order, I think. It just sort of happened. Fine time too, when I won't have time to read for the next eleven weeks.

I, by the way, have pants that fit and new blue shoes that are bouncy so I can do swordfighting class and not get blisters or trip over my feet.

Two and a half gorram weeks until Stargate and you have no idea how excited I am.

Somebody might be buying my old Cabriolet. I'll be sad to see it go because I just love that car. It only ever broke down on me once!

Currently on Book Two of the New Jedi Order (out of nineteen, if one doesn't count the two e-books, one of which I have). This book doesn't seem quite as bad as it did the last time I read it (though by no means is it great). Maybe reading all of it helps.

My room is a little bit of a mess because I've picked up a bunch of new clothes over the last few weeks and I have no place to put them. There are about a half dozen sweatshirts draped over my desk chair and t-shirts everywhere. It's not as bad as Sam's room. He doesn't have a floor.

I want to watch some Star Trek, dammit! I want to see Shatner back when he was good looking! I want to see Uhura in a miniskirt! I want to see Chekov in his Monkees wig! I CRAVE STAR TREK!!

I've also re-addicted myself to Spider Solitaire and it interferes with my reading. Whoops.

I just sneezed four times in a row. I am so allergic to something right now and it's pissing me off.

I actually seem to be reading Vector Prime all the way through this time. Go me! It helps a bit that I've turned the Mary Sue into a guy, and a cute one at that. He/She's sort of being played by Sean Patrick Flanery, but I can't remember what he sounds like except when he's using an Irish accent. I totally futzed up the Star Wars universe when I began rereading it a few months ago and changed around a bunch of people. Han Solo went from looking a little like Harrison Ford to looking a lot like Nathan Fillion because really, wouldn't he just make a dandy Han Solo? He IS Captain Tightpants, after all. Luke and Leia just kind of got bastardized. I tried to make the whole thing in my head sort of a mix between the styles of Firefly and the new BSG (which I don't watch). Basically, becaue the whole thing needed updating for dramatic effect. And because I can.

I'd like to set the Yuuzhan Vong against the Ori and see if they're so tough then.
