If you know me at all, you know how much I love to bash on ‘merica. Thanks to our highly respected Yahoo.com, I read an article for once that made the nerd inside me proud. The name of the article is titled, “11 Ridiculous White House Petitions”. While “ridiculous” is debateable language, I most definitely approve of thiz message. Anyway, the most exciting petition which made number one on the list is, according to Yahoo:
“Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016
To sign this petition yourself, sign here, for the love of all things Star Wars!…and to also mock the government. I get too much joy from this. Anyway….CLICK. GO. NOW.
Another amazing petition with even more signatures than the Death Star proposition is:
Here is the link to sign this petition. Get to it, nerds!
Well now don’t I feel really bad…well maybe just a little bad.
All those times we said he was only adding things into the movies to make some extra money, re-releasing the movies Lord Vader only knows how many times, and everything we thought he was doing just for an extra buck may not be entirely true. I mean it still definitely could be, but now he’s putting that money to charity. Lucas improved lives by creating a universe that changed people’s lives and now because of the success of that universe lives will be saved. Touche Mr. Lucas I can almost forgive you.
So by now I am sure all of you in the Nerdosphere have heard the bombshells that dropped today concerning Lucasfilm and specifically Star Wars. Here is a quick recap just in case you have been living in a Krayt Dragon cave in the Jundland wastes. Disney has bought Lucasfilm and the Star Wars Universe along with it for over 4 billion dollars. Lucas is out. The Star Wars legacy now resides in the hands of Disney and one Kathleen Kennedy of Lucasfilm. As if that weren’t enough of an announcement, on the heels of the sale comes the announcement that there will be more Star Wars films. Yes, plural. The early word is that Episode 7 will be the first of a new trilogy due out in 2015, and that they hope to make one Star Wars film every few years. To quote Princess Leia “It’s not over yet.” At this point I have too many mixed emotions and have lost all mastery over the Jedi code for the day. I must meditate or lose myself to the dark side, but HOLY BANTHA S****!! I have spent the past couple of hours trying to organize my thoughts, but I have too much to say and will just save it for this weeks podcast, which will be up either late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning. Please give us your opinion on this news Nerdosphere! I will leave you with a video from Lucas himself as well as one from Disney on the announcement.
