Random Links: Star Wars Hits 30 Edition

I've always wondered what it would have been like to have seen Star Wars in a movie theater 30 years ago today when it first opened. I grew up with it instead so I'll never fully understand how big of a deal it was. Practically since birth, I've known Vader was Luke's father and that it's completely practical to run off with a delusional old man bearing dangerous weapons after your adopted parents are murdered under mysterious circumstances.

Awwww, original trilogy. I still love ya', regardless of all that BS George Lucas would cough-up a quarter of a century later. Happy birthday, little-sci-fi-movie-that-would-go-on-to-spawn-a-multi-billion-dollar-franchise-that-dominated-a-good portion-of-my-childhood. Now that you're 30, it's time for you to get a real job and a mortgage, you lazy bum!

With that out of the way, here's another batch of random links:


  • I really wish I had thought of this first. LOLZ!!!1!


  • Now even CNN is criticizing MetroFi. I'm typing this up at one of the Blue Moon's outside tables near an access point. Their service isn't even registering when I search for nearby wireless networks. Four other unsecured networks though? Right there, ripe for the plucking. MetroFi's expanding into Hillsdale but it still can't a lock down on NW 21st and Glisan? Weak.


  • First comes Silver Surfer quarters, next comes billboards for Live Free or Die Hard on the White House lawn. Say, I don't know if I would be entirely opposed to that idea.


  • Sure, cocaine's back but no He-Man or Jello Pudding Pops?


  • Wilie Nelson? He's from Portland. Kinda.


  • Ok, so He-Man's back but what about those Pudding Pops?


  • Here, have some HARDCORE PORNOGRAPHY!


  • Fine, Jello Pudding Pops have been back for a while now but where's ALF?


  • Here's an obligatory, wistful Star Wars link.


  • I sure wish Chewbacca would start blogging again.


  • And finally...
