So I remixed Twilight of the Apprentice to The Last Agni Kai because I like pain and also crying. Because why not, right? Enjoy!

While the cast and crew were filming “Spock’s Brain,” Psychologist Dr. Benjamin Spock was sentenced to three years in jail for his role in assisting draft evaders. The real-life Spock felt that the Vietnam War was unconstitutional and went so far as to sign the “Writers and Editors War Tax Protest” pledge, vowing to refuse tax payments in protest.

maxpowersimpsonskywalkerspock  asked:

It's funny how ppl say that Kylo Ren is everything Anakin should be...

it’s funny in the sense that they missed the point of anakin’s story.

like - he didn’t have to come from nothing. or, you know what, less than nothing; he didn’t have to come from slavery. he didn’t have to get screwed over by big government and theocratic institutions, he didn’t have to be strung along by palpatine, he didn’t have to be insecure and feel powerless.

but it makes the story better. 

people want to pretend the prequels are all about anakin turning into vader, but that’s just the face value of it; the prequels are really about vader earning his redemption, so it’s more than a guy who did wrong and was magnanimously evil his entire life suddenly making one good, whole, pure choice. that’s a beautiful story, sure - but it’s not as good as the one the prequels offer. 

the beauty of retroactively writing anakin the way they did was the deconstruction of the darth vader power complex people built in their heads. back during the OT, people thought he was rich, a lord of a system, that he was powerful - the PT destroyed that. suddenly, darth vader was a former slave, suddenly, darth vader was a desolate, pathetic human being. 

they showed you, blatantly, where evil would get you. they made one of the most popular, captivating, and mesmerizing villains in history powerless.

but, sure. anakin came from relative privilege, turned to the dark to acquire power, and spent twenty years terrorizing the galaxy before he magically decided, “oh, i’m going to the light now!” sure. 

keep your shitty narrative, vader dudebro fanboys. keep whining.

The Stupidest Death in all of Star Wars Legends

I’ve realized that a lot of my followers are not as familiar with the ins and outs of the old Expanded Universe as I am. So it’s story time.

Now, there were a lot of deaths in the NJO and onwards that didn’t do the character justice. Many off screen deaths. Many cheap deaths. Many deaths that didn’t really matter to the story. But nothing compares to Mon Mothma.

She didn’t really appear in the NJO. She’d been appearing less and less in the books in the Bantam era. And then suddenly in Star by Star, there was a ship called the Mon Mothma. Only after the book was already out did anyone remember “Uh… they only name ships after dead people.”

There are a lot of dumb deaths in the EU, but nothing can quite compare to killing a movie character off screen. Retroactively. By accident.

An American Airlines passenger flying from San Jose to Houston captured what appears to be the image of a flying saucer that landed and was giving off a series of luminous orbs into the sky. What makes it even stranger is that the unusual sighting occurred not far away from infamous Area 51. The witness, who asked to remain anonymous, said that when the phenomenon was spotted the plane was flying somewhere above Luning and Gabbs, in the Nevada desert, when he noticed a series of flashes from the desert.

According to Scott Warring, editor of UFO Sightings Daily: “This disk formation on the ground does have the appearance of a landed UFO on the ground.

“Gabby is about 140 miles southwest of Area 51. The person caught a cloaked (hidden) UFO in the area.

“The metallic of the UFO is partly exposed and I’m sure it wasn’t for long.

“This UFO is partly cloaked to look like the surrounding area. Some cloaks make UFOs appear as clouds, others invisible, this one…is trying to blend in with the surroundings.”

Some say its a giant Ivanpah Solar Power Facility….
