death comes for us all. what difference does it make how?

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 January 2021 - 06:26 PM)

It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

@  Telly : (24 January 2021 - 02:31 AM)

so light yagami is a BAD role model? but ive already got a death note...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 11:43 PM)

Do you always model proper behavior after anime characters?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 January 2021 - 06:34 PM)

Don't forget Yu-Gi-Oh and the Millennium items.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 January 2021 - 02:51 PM)

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

Check your Walmarts: Post-Christmas clearances are going on and I snagged Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered for Switch for only $5 (YMMV)

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

The mob first took notice of Taylor on November 15th, when a user on the infamous ResetERA forums opened a new topic featuring a headline accusing Taylor of posting racist & covid conspiracies on Parler.

He disputes it and Mark Hammill supports him so he must be innocent!

Oh, maybe Mark doesn't support him anymore? He deleted this response:

JAT claims it's an imposter and whilst he did have a Parler account it was purely because he'd heard it was another form of upcoming social media and wanted to claim the account.

Same here. If facts come out and prove otherwise, i’ll accept it. Until then, this just looks like extreme internet nutters jumping on the mob train for another slanging agenda match.

Watched some clips from the LEGO special.

I know they got an English actress but the soundalike they use for Rey gives a really awkward performance. Her attempt to match Daisy makes Rey sound dumb and thuggish, like someone doing a mocking impersonation when complaining about someone.

watched 1-6, solo and rogue one the past week. while doing so, some questions popped in my head

 

at the end of solo, hes off to tattooine to join up with jabba. since boba fett likes to hang around jabba, i wonder if they worked together? that would give an explanation (not that its needed) as to how fett knew/suspected the falcon was attached to the star destroyer in empire (it works better than trying to say "hes seen it done before" with obi-wan over geonosis...)

 

the second question is, just how much did owen and beru know about what happened to anakin? 

 

keep in mind i dont follow any of the books or comics. ive read a few here and there (mostly the new vader comics), but disney threw those in the trash compactor


When I die I will surely go to Heaven for i spent my life in Hell

I don't think they knew a lot.  They knew he was unpleasant and shooting around the galaxy doing stuff.  He showed up just almost in time to save Shmi and then was off again.

Saw the Lego Life Day special too. Really didn't like Rey's voice. Sounded like a man.

They spent so much time of Kylo's chest, haha

My favorite part was Vader vs Vader. But I really thought it would have everybody from all the jump points hang out in a ceasefire.

I mean, the Larses (or at least Owen) had some undefined beef with Kenobi as well, apparently. It's possible that, as with all conservative small-towners, they just naturally distrust anyone from "the government" (and particularly hate anyone who "sells out" to join them [and then never comes back], like Anakin did). Even not knowing that he's Vader, he's still "a former Jedi, now involved with the Emperor" in some way they're probably not clear on.

Tatooine is basically hillbilly country, after all.

Rey's voice is a different British actress attempting to replicate Daisy's cadence and not achieving it. Daisy has a clear accent but is very well spoken by our standards. The stand in is trying so hard that it sounds wrong. Where Daisy has a softer, fluent delivery, the stand in smacks into every syllable and sounds like she's either dumb or has a blocked nose.

Given some of the latest developments in The Mandalorian, I think we're going to get a new animated series that fills in the huge gaps of time between the OT and the ST which Mando's journey is really just setting the table for.

 

They obviously can't get the original cast back to do it in live-action, but they don't need to with animation so this is probably the best course for Lucasfilm.  It would also give the mouse another tentpole series for Disney+, which is crucial for them at this point.
