Let him through,
Cuz he's living large.
Be the first to bow down before him.
Here he comes!
Get Reebo's band on the drums,
Oh you're gonna fear this guy!
Lord Jabba! This here fella,
Is a Hutt gangster.
Your best bet, is to respect
Now try to not cross his path,
Or you will feel his wrath
And be frozen on the wall for all to see!
Lord Jabba, one hell of a
Mighty Hutt gangster!
Bow your head,
Or you'll be dead,
As Rancor feed.
He sent hunters for Solo,
Who had nowhere left to go,
Could he escape us? No!
Jabba caught him!

In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office - I see my people
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If this land's still made for you and me.
- Woody Guthrie, This Land is Your Land (1944)
I was beginning to get really depressed, discouraged by the dismal state of our world. Pollution, abortion, abuse, racism, murder, poverty, oppression of religion the news is never good. I thought that the problem was with my country and its people, that things would surely be better in another country. Maybe people would be kinder, more moral, more just. I began researching other cultures,

I wish for no more pain
I wish for happiness
Achieving this is not easy
There is a long road
Full of bumps, detours and stop signs
But This Christmas I wan't everyone to be happy
Even the ones out on the street
I wish everyone to find their own home
In their heart
I wan't to see no one by stores or by bus stops
I want to see many homes filled with Christmas lights
This Christmas I want to see people sitting on their steps
Of their home in the heart
I wish for all animals as well
When the snow descends, let their fur be a thick blanket
Let them have a home as well
They are people too

Director: Ridley Scott
Starring: Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, and Ian Holm
A timeless tale of horror and man (or in this case woman) against an unknown murderous force, Alien , now over 30 years in age, continues to be one of the most beloved gems of the science-fiction genre. Alien has always been one of my personal favorite movies for many reasons, which I would fail to summarize in the span of this review, but I certainly can try my best to fill out details on my casual view on what's the best way to enjoy the film.
Alien is a haunted house if you could put the feeling of a well-done haunted house on screen. A fusion o

A 14 year old girl
Still look out to sea
To swim by and
Take me away
Is it hopeless
That my deepest desires
Involve a magnificent castle
With white horses
And a Prince Charming
Is it pathetic
That when I look at
A flying insect
I sometimes imagine its
A carefree pixie
A fearless fairy
Is it pitiful
That I still pretend
That animals can talk
And understand me perfectly
Is it sad
That I want to be taken by pirates
By a flying boy
That lives forever
Is it wishful thinking
That I still look at
And hope that
My life will be as
Happy; as fulfilling

Those that presume to take up the mantle of the dark side do so for trivial reasons. Some, consumed by their impotent rage at their own weakness, seek to shroud themselves in darkness to futilely mask their inferiority. Others simply seek an outlet for their frivolous hedonisms, abounding in debauchery simply to spite the sensibilities of other beings.
Those beings have no understanding of what it means to be Sith.

Please protect our families and friends above all;
Keep our spirits soaring and show us the way,

Look after the dibbuns as they frolic around,
Running across the abbey's soft and grassy ground;
Keep a careful watch over the elders as well,
Especially when they pass by the slow, steady knell.
Guard our gates from foebeasts and vermin of all kind,
For no good comes from creatures with murder in mind;
The inhabitants of Redwall shall always know your essence,

Movie reviews: Secret of NimhMovie: The Secret of NimhMovie reviews: Secret of Nimh3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Very few animated movies are what I would call "timeless treasures". Don Bluth's The Secret of Nimh, a gem that endeared itself to me during my childhood, is just such a timeless treasure. The animation is lush and expressive, recalling the old glory days of Disney. Ironically, Don Bluth left Disney in indignation while they were still in production of The Fox and the Hound, Disney's last true classic which did exactly that one year prior to The Secret of Nimh.
There is no sense of irony in The Secret of Nimh. Don Bluth didn't take any time to toss venom in the direction of Disney. His revenge was served by wo

The Republic seems to have the advantage in capital ship combat, but the CIS has some equalizing advantages.
Many of the CIS warships are designed for mass production, and were designed for business scores not a full scale war. Many of the CIS leaders were cheap, and wouldnt spend the money for a traditional fleet. Only the Providences seem to be specifically designed for combat. The Lukrehulks are simply converted freighters with VERY strong shields and some turbolaser offensive capability., but with the sheer number of Turbolasers and the shield power added, with the fighter and troop c

There is a need. An impulse.
All we see is a canvas. A world that needs our vision.
A vision for the world to appreciate.
We want to build. Construct a masterpiece.

Surely we don't need too.
Our work could never end, because a creationist's mind is full of endless possibilities.

Of course he won't survive.
I know of the order.
Every clone knows it.
In the back of our minds,
It festers away.
The Jedi we love,
We'll take their lives away.
Can't be helped.
We cry inside.
But we are mere robots
Of flesh design.
We obey the Sith Lord,
Against our will.
Hands cut off and tied,
While we'll take blood.
I'll one day kill my leader.
My Obi-Wan Kenobi.
I just pray it's not today.
Because if it is,
I'll pray he'll forgive me,
Plead innocence though bloody guilty.
Then I'll pray that somebody kills me.
