Do you feel the same way about Abbot and Costello doing WW2 flicks during that war?  Or Looney Tunes doing the same?  Captain America comics fighting the Nazis?  The recent FX series "Over There?"  Mass media has always covered and replayed current and recent tragedies and wars.

It's probably more so that you call out the correct name at the opportune moment.  Helps their self-esteem.

There was a LEGO.com when you were in second grade??!!  What are you, 11 years old?   ;D

There was barely even a USENET when I was in second grade.

I work 52.5 hour weeks at least 3 or 4 times a year to cover for vacation time for one of my coworkers.  But usually it's 37.5.

I couldn't give an exact number of hours, but there was a week in college when I was working 2 full-time summer jobs in addition to taking a class.  I was transferring from one job to another, so for a couple days I'd work 3pm-11pm at Shoney's, then midnight-8am at a sandwich shop, then go to class from 9am-noon.  Those were some rough days.

I saw The Descent, and was really underwhelmed.  I saw it based on the glowing reviews, and it really didn't hold up.  They were talking about "haunting images," but I didn't see anything slightly memorable.  They talked about the great monsters, but they were actually pretty laughable.  I was expecting gore like Saw, but it turned out to be really tame.  And they talked about these 6 unbelievably hot women on a caving trip, but to my tastes there was really only one attractive one in the lot.  It was $8 wasted.

Does anybody actually like that sort of crotch tattoo?

Man... you are old!  That's like... more than half-way from 30 to 40!  You must be popping the Viagra regularly at this point.

That sign is hilarious. Reminds me of the first time I saw Grease.

 ???

Grease starts out with Travolta and Olivia Newton John laying on the beach making out, like the final scene of a movie.  I actually asked my wife if she forgot to rewind the tape before playing it.   ;D

I've been following this for a while (being in the newspaper industry).  There was an example of it in Minority Report... the animated newspaper that the guy had on the subway that showed Tom Cruise's wanted picture.  That one was a lot more dynamic than the one described here, allowing for constant updates.  But it's still the same premise.

I think this is still a ways off, though.  I wish it'd come around sooner, but there will be a lot of infrastructure to build.

Opposed.  I already have plenty of plastic women on my Star Wars toy shelves.  And those "bikinis" are very unflattering.

It's a freakin' blog.  I shudder to think just how my site could be taken out of context if a newspaper wanted to write a story about my love of Star Wars.
