Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.

Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t’was his intent
To blow up the King and Parliament.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England’s overthrow;
By God’s providence, he was catch’d
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys holloa boys, God save the King!

Time for V for Vendetta and a few other similar-based films this week, then 😃

Equilibrium, 1984, Brazil, Fahrenheit 451, and just because… The Time Machine (1960) - am off to the Media section 😉

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

I will also watch V For Vendetta

I can answer almost all questions anyone might have about the Sith from Star Wars Legends, and please do PM me for the bd25 DEED(Despecalised Editions), as I have this version, though I can’t answer technical questions about them. Auntie Derry/Rumpelstiltskin.

I wasn’t aware Vera Miles is still alive.

Why are there ads on mobile? Anyone else see them? Did I miss this being posted about already?

Army of Darkness: The Medieval Deadit | The Terminator - Color Regrade | The Wrong Trousers - Audio Preservation
SONIC RACES THROUGH THE GREEN FIELDS.
THE SUN RACES THROUGH A BLUE SKY FILLED WITH WHITE CLOUDS.
THE WAYS OF HIS HEART ARE MUCH LIKE THE SUN. SONIC RUNS AND RESTS; THE SUN RISES AND SETS.
DON’T GIVE UP ON THE SUN. DON’T MAKE THE SUN LAUGH AT YOU.

I added them last night. It’s a trial run to see if they’ll generate any revenue to offset hosting costs.

This technically helps our efforts by making it easier for fans to buy the official versions. 😉

So long as it’s not banner ads for hot Twi’lek on Twi’lek action. 😛

I logged into the site on mobile to see what people were talking about. Firefox on my desktop PC blocks them for me. I’d switch back to Firefox on Android to block them there, but it’s of paramount importance to me for LastPass to autofill in-browser, and Firefox for Android’s LastPass addon is broken.

In some time my avatar will no longer fit my signature.

But the good thing: It will be so iconic, it’ll be some time before I change it. 😛

I want my first child to be a girl. Call me a reverse sexist if you will, but all my adult life I’ve preferred girls over boys and would prefer a daughter before a son.

So reverse Darth Vader: find daughter before son

Are those singing Amazon boxes supposed to be cute and charming? I find them horrifying. And way to ruin a classic Jackson 5 song for me, Amazon. 😛

Just listened to Jackie Evancho singing. Her voice is freaking impressive. In comparison to my singing, Evancho is Steven Spielberg and I’m Uwe Boll.

Just doing a lil’ late night lurking right now, trying to catch up on reading what happened on this forum in the past couple years, I took a good break from this site when TLJ came out because the forum started getting polluted with really, say, immature dialogue over the movie. Anyway, after spending a while in off-topic and reading through some of the politics thread and shit, I gotta say this community is kinda wack. Like I thought people were adults and stuff but god damn some of the shit that gets posted in here is quite ridiculous (BY THE WAY I AM NOT CHOOSING SIDES ON ANY TOPICS, I AM NOT GLAD THAT CERTAIN MEMBERS WERE BANNED, NOR AM I GOING TO USE THIS POST TO SHIT ON JAY OVER SOME PETTY SHIT) and honestly I dunno if I should’ve done this tonight, I came here with my love for star wars and I’ll stay here as long as my love for star wars continues to thrive, but fuck man.

I’m with you on that one. This place is pretty depressing sometimes. It’s not nearly as fun as it used to be, and now that my love for Star Wars has waned a bit, I imagine it’s only a matter of time before I take off.

It’s been a rough year around here.
