Anyone else hear the theme from Jeff Wayne's "War of the Worlds" here?

Ratatouille - one of the better movies this year that no one is going to see...
Honestly, though, that is probably the best thing I've ever read on the internet. Illbegotten, inane anti-Corporatist notions combined with truly disturbing glances into a precarious emotional state. Brilliant! This is why I love Freedom of Expression.
Its pretty good, but not nearly as good as this.
You know... this will be my last strenuous post for tonight. What the [censored] can we do, you know? We are just oppressed, little people who can't do [censored] about anything. We have basically given hasbro our lives. We have poured our hearts into their company. Their families and their joy come at the expense of our suffering. Yet, the world is [censored] greedy. That's just how it is. Collectors getting sucked dry is just a grain of sand in what is known as reality. The world is a [censored] up place. No one gives a [censored] about each other. What is all of this complaining going to do? You know what? I would [censored] throw chairs during a hasbro presentation if I knew that my fellow collector base would back me up and say what hasbro has been doing is absolute [censored]. I hate it. I really hate it. This hobby really isn't for me. I don't want to be a sucker anymore. I want to give up my addiction. Not because of Star Wars though, it's because of the pieces of filth known as hasbro. They have never made me feel welcome. They have never shown one inkling of care or respect for me. They haven't cried or gave a damn about how I felt. How can I continue supporting something I knew was going to take advantage of me from the beginning? I am ashamed of myself now actually. And I have decided that I am going to quit collecting after the 30th Anniversary Collection. I hate hasbro with all of my heart because they have wounded me personally so much. But hasbro isn't the only selfish and greedy company out there. This world is filled with horrible [censored]. [censored] we can't even begin to imagine. I'm hoping one day the people will finally stop allowing themselves be stepped on, be brave and unite to overthrow the scum of the world.
There had better be something other than yet more Phase II Clones included for me to consider ordering this pack.
After the Death Star Briefing, I had rather high hopes for this set. However, now, I am dubious. What do the clones have to do with any of it anyway? The Mandos and the Republican Military weren't exactely buddy-buddy.
Well, they're the only "phase II"/ROTS clones in these sets. I think the next reveal will probably blow you away. ("Probably" being key as well, different figures appeal to different fans. I think this is an appealing one.)
Regarding Mandalorians/Llats Ward and the clones, please read this entry at Wookieepedia for the backstory of why a Mandalorian might be training Clones. (Assuming you haven't seen it yet.) Also, this page at Entertainment Earth has a big picture and a smidge more back story. Some people take jobs they don't necessarily want to do, and it seems on some level, Mandalorian Llats Ward training Clones could be one of those jobs, from a certain point of view.
Yeah I've heard maneuvering around all the other days wasn't bad, so maybe these #'s are a tad skewed if it was only Saturday. EVERY day was packed at C3.
Either way I would settle for a move to Vegas if that's what it took. Cheap flights, cheap hotels, easy to get around, actual stuff to do around the con centers there, and it's much more "open" to everyone in the country, not just West Coasters.
That or move it to Chicago. They can accomodate that, they're centrally located, and they actually have things going on downtown there.
