Seven years later, this is still true.


Low-quality reviews by this Sam Wollaston guy abound.  He writes too much, and thinks too little.  There's enough griping about him around the net to make anything I have to say redundant.

Wikipedians, please don't quote Mr. Wollaston in your articles.

There is no hope

There is no such thing as "Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope" (1977).

Change the (1977) to a (1997) or a (2004), and maybe I will play along with calling it that.  But you still won't catch me watching either of those...what should we call them...films?

As for the movie I loved when it was a kid, it was called "Star Wars".  It had two sequels.  These were popularly called "Empire" and "Jedi".

When you play along with marketers because you loved something in the past, you are a tool.

Amazon's Shocking Public Masturbation Scandal

Today's Amazon landing page:

I am waiting to hear the news that the Amazon marketing department has been wound up and jailed on indecent exposure charges.  CPS is sending a worker around to TheJennaBee's house to check up on just how much she loves her son.  LinseFrank is going to have a working brain installed soon, with a "meme is not a thought" filter that should allow her to communicate normally again.  Doctors say Ryeisenberg may keep some, but not all, of her toes...once her levels stabilize.
