Hey, could anyone PM me the infamous rabbit picture? I might need it for a talk with friends and I don’t have it saved.

Mildly annoyed with my Dad. We got some guitars from my late grandfather, and he wants to sell the Stratocaster. Ok sure, his decision. However, I tune it to see if I have the same problems with it he does (the bridge being to high up and not sitting flush) when I overtighten the first string and break it, and notice that the bridge lies more flush now.

I brought up my suspicions that perhaps that the bridge problems he had might be because the strings are too tight on it (though I said overtuned) And he said that couldn’t be the case because he used an electric tuner. Well it’s tuned right, why is the bridge practically being pulled out of its socket?

I have not. I’m still in Fall Year 1, and I’ve heard from various people online not to necessarily bother with it in Year 1 because I’d have a hard time making/acquiring things they “love” and/or giving it to them by their birthday. I think I’m gonna court Abigail. She has a Super NES in her room.

But for right now I’ve been focusing on making berry jelly. I read online that a good source of income in Year 1 is Blueberry Jelly in the Summer, and Cranberry Jelly in the Fall (and to buy seeds in Year 1 for Strawberry Jelly in Spring starting in Year 2).

All of my tools are upgraded to gold; and just last night I got to the bottom of the mine.

JEDIT: Apparently that was a joke? But I don’t seem to get it.

I courted Abigail as well. She’s not super difficult to court. Get a bunch of quartz (technically amethyst will be better received, but quartz has the funny dialogue) which isn’t difficult to extract from the mines. Pumpkin in the fall (as well as when her birthday is) and just talk to her regularly. I managed to wed her by the beginning of Winter year 1.

Also, they need to start injecting something else than nostalgia very soon into their Star Wars, or the brand will go stale. Same reason for why they tolerate MCU movies that are not massive successes on their own.

I can get behind the idea that they need some new blood in Star Wars. I’m just surprised they took him on for an entire trilogy, rather than a one off.

Star Wars prequels were mapped out in 1981, only nothing like the way they turned out

Came to this through the index thread.

"Lucas: Well, he is a teacher, not a real Jedi. Understand that?

Kasdan: I understand what you’re saying, but I can’t believe it; I am in shock."

THis made me laugh for some reason

As I see it, the idea was that Yoda and Palpatine are “masters” while Vader and Obi-Wan are “knights”. “Knights” use lightsabers and tend to join the action while “masters” prefer giving orders and don’t need lightsabers because they can use The Force itself.

Kind of like a Feudal Lord and their vassals?

I just realized that the Millennium Falcon if flying on that red dust planet in a couple shots! Maybe my wish to hear the Rebel motif and the March of the Resistance motif coming together will come true after all!

Just saw a trailer during the World Series. Great shot of Luke stepping into the cockpit of the Falcon.

It’s now up on the Star Wars youtube channel too:-

‘The Last Jedi : Awake’…

😃

Nice trailer. Since I have a compulsion, here’s the Luke and Falcon shot made to look more like it did in the olden days:

That pic makes Luke look like he has a Robot Eye.

I’m with you, actually. It’s about time the franchise returned the Jedi master to what it should be – an enlightened sage evolved beyond the need for physical weapons.

Still, if Luke has to use a lightsaber, I’d prefer it come in #FF0000.

Oh, definitely. The blue one is Rey’s now, let Luke use the green one. I wouldn’t mind seeing it for sparring practice, or something like that, but yeah. Luke is the mentor now, not the protagonist. He doesn’t need to kick butt; that’s what Rey’s for.

I thought he already did. 😛

He might’ve, but I think there was more they could do. Like I’d feel some of the more questionable scenes involving Yoda might work better if they were done by the zealous warhawk instead of the 900 year old muppet. “War does not make one great,” would become Yoda alluding to Windu, rather than a slightly hypocritical statement (though a more visible realization that Yoda was played like a fiddle for following with the war might make it less disjointed, and character development instead of hypocrisy.)

You become Lucas' advisor post-1999
Time

There’s a couple things from the Revenge of the Sith Novelization that really should be in the film, as they seem important to understanding Anakin’s motivations. (Really the whole film probably should’ve used a condensed version of the novel as its starting point, but I digress)

First, is a minor mission to a dying star, which utterly shocked Anakin to the core, and ate at him forever since then. What would he do without Obi-Wan or Padme? What would they do without him?

The second one is the entire reason he got so angry over not being granted the title of Master. Basically, he was trying to see if there was something regarding using the Force to prolong life. However, that part of the Jedi archives was locked off to the Jedi Masters, and his situation wasn’t really one he could talk to them about. So Palpatine appointing him to be his representative was seen to be his was into the title of Master, and thus into the archives. Except Mace Windu said that Anakin merely had a seat, not the title.

Also, Make Mace Windu into more of an obvious antagonist for the rest of the films. He’d represent the most strict and repressive interpretations of the Jedi ways, a clearer sign of how far the Jedi had fallen by the era of the Prequels.

I remember hearing that were deliberately designed to be ludicrous, more of a propaganda reel than literally true, but that may be apocryphal attempts to excuse it.

EDIT: I wouldn’t look too hard into the disclaimer. From what I heard it’s because it was aired on Disney XD, which has a younger target audience than most channels.

What are you talking about?

oojason was talking about the first TV Spot having a disclaimer about the film not being suitable for minors, whereas I heard (rumours, mind you) That it’s because of the channel it was aired on, not an indication of the film itself.
