Heard the Word of Blog?

A few thoughts...I need to get these down quickly, though, Richie's taking me out for an inexpensive "Happy Anniversary" dinner.

One, W finally denounced the Swift Boat Veterans ads. Or did he? This controversy never seems to end.

Two, it looks like George Lucas is talking about the "third trilogy" of Star Wars films again. For those who aren't familiar with this: the original three Star Wars films were initially designed as the middle of a nine-film series. Then, after Episode 1: The Phantom Menace was released, he basically backed off on his ambitious idea, stating that he'd be too old to think about more Star Wars films after the making of Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith.

Guess what, folks...we might see Episode 7: The Lure of the Lucre, and an Episode 8 and 9 too, if some reports filtering around the Star Wars fan sites are to be believed. The only chance that it might not suck is if they got This guy or maybe this guy or maybe even this guy to write the screenplays, and maybe even direct too. Lucas has botched too much of my childhood memories with this prequel trilogy...Fox should not trust him with more.

Lastly, I don't know why this article got to me, but it is yet another symptom of a screwed up economy, and another local company biting the dust. Great.
