Your Thursday Nighter Open Thread

Min @ Ari: Everything points to this game going the Cards way, doesn’t it? Some fantasy advice I came across on one site stated, “START ALL THE CARDINALS YOU CAN!”. If this was a game of Clue As Foreign Films I’d say, “Arizona/Brando in the empty apartment with a stick of butter”. Maria Schneider, uh, the Vikes look very vulnerable right now. QB Bridgewater can’t throw a TD without an accompanying intercept later on. This year his ratio is 8/8-career-wise he’s 20/20 (ironing?). His counterpart is sporting a “hey national media, come take a look-see” 29/9. Football Outsiders’ take on Teddy cuts right through the lutefisk though-The offensive line is so bad that teams don’t need to rush more than three or four defenders to get quick pressure on the quarterback. I’m sure it’ll get better though. Whoops. That’s a no. The Vikes bread and butter defenders Barr, Joseph and Smith are all out. It’s all on you AP.

I know why I’m up, I’m an insomniac crazy person who rarely gets a full night’s sleep; what’s with everyone else being awake tonight?

And I can’t embed YouTube videos, either, for some reason. I’ve no idea what the hell I’m doing wrong, either, but it’s beginning to piss me off.

Same problem; not to worried.

Between episode III and Empire, Yoda goes from being the venerated elder of the Jedi knights to a kleptomaniac asshole incapable of coherent thought. In fact, I take back my defense of Empire from earlier. This movie is a mess. Nothing makes sense, no one behaves like a person, this movie makes R2D2’s refusal to speak English less of a cutesy affectation and more of a highly aggravating dick move, everything that happens is a giant coincidence the nerds who defend this movie refuse to allow any other, and Vader just ignores the main Rebel fleet escaping Hoth to focus on the Falcon hiding out on an asteroid.

And, considering the Big Reveal at the end of the movie, it makes the Vader/Emperor conversation about “Skywalker’s son” even dumber than it plays when it first happens. Vader drops the “I am your father” line without a problem later, but when he’s talking to his boss, he can’t say, “my son?” And the Emperor, usually a smarmy dick not above making a shitty insult when it pops into his head, doesn’t decide to screw with his apprentice a little here? No “come on, Annie, you’re supposed to be all powerful…. are you telling me you missed the babies?!” He just acts like Annakin Skywalker was some guy these two stabbed in an alleyway and stole his wallet.

Despite all this, it’s the Yoda shit that bugs me more than anything: he goes from not wanting to train Luke to agreeing to do so within one 30 second conversation with a goddamn ghost (and wasn’t this one of the things Yoda refused to believe happened to fallen Jedi in the first place?!), a conversation he has with Luke RIGHT FUCKING NEXT TO HIM, and despite Luke being able to hear Obi Wan earlier, he misses this whole thing this time around. I guess Jedi Ghost Talks are less a speakerphone and more of a direct dial situation, huh?

The less said about the “dark side of the force hut,” the better.

Chewbacca is a sentient being, and considered a great warrior in the Alliance. Why is it, then, that so many people walk around treating him like a dog walking on its hind legs? Seriously, people keep scratching the big fucker like he’s the family pet, and he ALLOWS this shit. Star Wars is fucking weird.

Beerguyrob

Par for the course at the Haus of Mouse.
