May the 4th be with you all. Anyone doing anything to celebrate? Think I’m going to bore my family with a mixed bag of movies n cartoons later.
Oh and have some beers.

I played some OT soundtracks at breakfast while we got the kids ready for preschool. Tonight I’m hoping to finally sit down and watch the silver screen edition. My goal is to do a 35mm marathon with the SSE and ESB & ROTJ Grindhouse versions (none of which I’ve actually had time to watch properly). But it will probably be spread over several days (as in, one movie per day) because kids. Oh, and TFA bluray to cap it off 'cause there are four Star Wars movies in my marathons now!

I’ll probably throw on Despecialized 2.7 tonight. Might try to snag a copy of Bloodline.

I’m going to wish in vain for an announcement of remasters of the originals.

I don’t really like being the one to bring negativity here, but I’ve never liked “Star Wars Day”. I always thought it was just an excuse for this silly pun, and that the real Star Wars Day should be May 25, not May 4.

I’ll gladly celebrate Star Wars Day when that day comes 😄.

I think I changed my mind: since I haven’t seen it in a while, first I’m going to watch ROTS :p
Unfortunately, my parents don’t understand English, so we can’t watch a fanedit: we’ll have to watch the original version, with Grievous acting like a fool and his Muppet Emperor like some kind of Disney villain 😄
But otherwise, I think it’s going to be worth it, because of its plot and dramatic scenes, improved by the Italian dub which is very good, making its dialogues and characters believable (which is probably true for every other ROTS’s dub).

Also, I’m going to buy a few more super discounted Star Wars titles:
-Rogue Squadron 3D;
-the X-wing series;
-Rebel Assault I + II (actually, I had the second one for Playstation back in the days, but not the first one).

P.S.: Is it “Italian dub” or “Italian dubbing”? “ROTS’s dub(bing)” or “ROTS dub(bing)”?

My facebook got spammed with May the 4th messages from people who aren’t even Star Wars fans. In fact, one post I saw was from a guy, who half a year ago said to me that “Star Wars is retarded shit for kids. Grow up.”

I was just going to say that I think the charm of May 4 as opposed to May 25 is that there’s a certain goofy festiveness that extends beyond the diehards. I’ve been off Facebook for about two years now, though, so that view could be naively unmarred by the sort of dickishness Hansi just brought up.

I wasn’t originally planning on anything, but now that I think about it, the Despecialized Edition sounds pretty fun right about now.

You know your penis tingles when you rain the negativity in on people

…And I hope the “penis tingles” thing really lets on that I’m just messing around.

I’ll be watching Star Wars (Despecialized 2.7) later today. It’ll be my first viewing of Star Wars with a proper surround sound setup, so that’s exciting. I’ll be using hairy_hen’s reconstructed 70mm 5.1 sound, of course.

Well… at least that means there are sometimes long intervals of non-masturbation. That’s a plus, right?

I wonder if Stinky-Dinkens’ penis tingles when he tapes it to his leg.
