the empire strikes out


My favorite part of [voicing Darth Maul for Lego Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out] had to be that “I’m So Awesome” song, of course. But I’ve done these Star Wars jobs for awhile now, and I’m a Star Wars fan, so I daresay I know Star Wars pretty well. So to be able to kind of poke fun at it is a good time, especially when you don’t really go too far with it. I have tremendous respect for George Lucas and Star Wars, but yeah, to take a not so serious approach to it is definitely a rare opportunity. - Sam Witwer [x]


Because you’ve always wanted to see Han and Leia get slobbered on by Gungans. (from The Empire Strikes Out)

The long knives have been coming out over Social Security lately. The latest wave of attacks was triggered by an amendment from Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) which would have expanded Social Security benefits, and which won the support of most Democrats in the Senate. That signaled a potential shift in the political tide – toward Social Security in particular and economic populism in general.

It also meant that it was time to suit up conservatism’s frayed old straw men and send them into dubious battle once again.

The attackers this time around include a “libertarian” finance writer, an editor for the National Review, and – inevitably – the editorial board of the Washington Post. But the battle against economic populism isn’t just being waged by the right. There are factions within the Democratic Party that want to re-empower its “centrist” wing, and they’ve been pushing back on the party’s new populism – which the movement to expand Social Security both reflects and reinforces – this week as well.

(These issues will be discussed next week at the Populism 2015 conference, cosponsored by the Campaign for America’s Future.)

I’m not remotely an Anisoka shipper, but: the idea of Luke being pursued by rampaging fangirls (including Ahsoka) who, upon catching a whiff of Hayden!Anakin, immediately descend on Vader instead, who flees in terror?  LMAO!  God, I need to watch this whole film.  :D  (It’s “The Empire Strikes Out,” ftr.)

Seriously, though - Ahsoka would actually be the one helping her master (and Obi-Wan) fend OFF the teenybopper Jedi groupies.  And maybe fending off hate mail from said groupies jealous Ahsoka gets to spend so much time with the pretty Jedi boys.  ;)  SOMEONE FIC THIS.
