Re: Last Movie Watched

Doctor Strange . Not bad. Not great, but not bad. It reminded me of certain portions of Batman Begins , really. And Stephen Strange seemed almost like a cross between Christian Bale's Batman/Bruce Wayne and Chris Pratt's Peter Quill. And some of Downey's Tony Stark. It basically followed the templa...

What about the old Caption Contest?

Is there any possibility we could get that started up again? I really did enjoy that.

Re: Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back

Ok, perfect venue for this question.Obviously Bodhi identifies them as "Rogue One" in the movie as they are violating orders to leave Yavin 4. Since Han was told the speeders weren't adapted to the cold on Hoth do we assume that the pilot searching for them the following morning, i.e. Rogue Two, to...

Re: Star Wars music

Favorite piece of music... Hard to name just one. There's very little of the John Williams music that I don't like. But, if I were to say, limit it to five... 1. The Imperial March 2. The Force theme 3. Yoda's Theme 4. Han Solo and the Princess 5. A track from the original ESB soundtrack LP that wa...

Fan Fiction: The Secret History of Boba Fett - Pt. 1

A little something I cooked up recently, "The Secret History of Boba Fett." There are seven chapters. This is the first: I. Egress A sliver of sky shone above him. Fett got to his feet, and started to fire his pack. The sky disappeared, sphinctered away by the Sarlaac. He tugged his holdout blaster ...

I note that the site doesn't use HTTPS by default.
Nor did the old GS. But we'll look into it.
Thanks. These days, I get very twitchy when I don't see at least a secure long-in.

Fan fic?

So...are we still allowed to post fan fic?

If so, where?

I put the question here because, well, I didn't see a "Fan Creation" section, and fiction usually appears in print, either digital or analog.

A bit of news programming this morning, on Fox, might have had Neil Cavuto in it.

Otherwise, Doctor Who, fourth season Episode "Blink," from disk.

Re: Last Movie Watched

Sleepy Hollow , the 1999 Tim Burton/Johnny Depp version, with three, count 'em, three Darths in the cast: Ray Park, Christopher Lee and Ian McDiarmid. Still not a bad little film. Nothing to do with Washington Irving's story of Ichabod Crane, Yankee schoolmaster, and his encounter with the decapita...
