Star Wars: Stand alone Star Wars films. Well, we’ve heard rumors of such things on and off for years, so who knows what will happen there. I guess the thinking would be is if you can have an Iron Man franchise running at the same time you have an Avenger’s franchise, why can’t you have a Bobba Fett movie and a greater overall Star Wars movie franchise?

I think the main problem here is the danger of watering down Star Wars, but the prequels have already done so much harm that maybe a bunch of good movies would help bolster it back up again.

One of the names involved was a heavy hitter in the world of Star Wars, Lawrence Kasdan, the man who was responsible for making Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi good. Yeah, Lucas came up with the stories, but Kasdan wrote the screenplays. And if that’s not good enough for you, dude also did the screenplay for Raiders of the Lost Ark. He also wrote and directed Dreamcatcher. *cough* Let’s forget about that one…

I should also point out that the quote from the Disney CEO was, “working on films derived from great Star Wars characters that are not part of the overall saga.” That doesn’t mean Boba Fett and Han Solo movies, but it doesn’t rule them out either.

Superbowl: The Superbowl was a thing that happened and the half time performers, someone that goes by the moniker of Beyonce, flashed a triangle for whatever reason singer/dancers would do something. That lead the dummies on the internet into thinking she was flashing a secret sign to the Illuminati in front of millions of television viewers. This lead me to make this:

Books: I’m currently reading Tales From Development Hell. It’s a really cool book that unveils the screwed up world of how movies can get stuck in a cycle of either never being made, or being made much later in a different form. There’s lots of great stories about geek movies. I say check it out if you are interested in how a movie sorta doesn’t get made.

I’m currently debating what kind of upgrade I want on my car’s grille. Want to help? The two options are top left and top right. The bottom pics are just there to illustrate the classic style each one evokes. I’d say which one I’m leaning towards, but I don’t want to sway you either way.

Is this car stuff annoying you? Well screw you, I want to talk about it.
