The Prequel Trilogy / The always charming Jake Lloyd
« on: July 25, 2009, 01:16 PM »
Wow! After watching the recent Yahoo interview with Jake Lloyd, I like to put him on our unofficial dead pool list. That is one depressed sarcastic kid. Oh woe is me, I was made fun of in high school for ruining ep1. Well, guess what. You did! I still look at those screen tests on the ep1 dvd and wonder why they chose the worst one. Didn't George see Jingle all the way?

Modern Classifieds / FS: Lifesize Yoda
« on: October 6, 2008, 01:55 PM »
A friend of a friend is selling this life size Yoda for $200. I believe its the ep1 Pepis statue. Anyone want it? The statue is in Orange County California.

Watto's Junk Yard / Life on Mars
« on: September 16, 2008, 09:57 AM »
I saw a commerical for Life on Mars last night. This is basically about a police officer that wakes from a coma to find he is in the '70s but weird things keep happening around him. He can't figure out if he is dreaming or really there.

I'm surprised they are doing an american version of this show. I wonder if they are going to use the same scripts. It kind of looked like it from the commerical. I wonder if the new Sam character will wake up at the end of the season and turn into the Master on Doctor Who like the British one did.

Watto's Junk Yard / Rango

Paramount Pictures has gotten Gore Verbinski(the Pirates films) to direct an animated film called "Rango" with Johnny Depp as the main character and a script by John Logan("The Aviator", "Sweeny Todd" and "Gladiator")...

Animation to be provided by ILM. Hmmm...

Watto's Junk Yard / Classic board games thread
« on: August 22, 2008, 10:24 AM »
With the talk of a new version of Clue coming out, I thought I would start a thread about some classic board games that I loved as a kid. Starting out is one that was kind of creepy and unusual.

There was a game I had back in the mid '70s called Seance. Players would bid on dead Uncle Everett's possessions and the high bidder listens to instructions from their dead Uncle via a record (played on the record player hidden in the deck.) When all the items have been bid on and acquired, the record in the desk in turned over and Uncle Everett tells the players what each of the items is worth or how is due in taxes for the item. The player with the most cash at the end of the game is the winner.

I wish I still had this game. A working version of the game is suppost to be extreemly rare due to the technology used back then.

Modern Trading / Wanted: build a droid parts

If you happen to have any extra build a droid parts, please send them this way. I'm looking at customizing some droids and could use some extra parts. Anything is welcome.

The Prequel Trilogy / Is Yoda a coward?
« on: July 23, 2008, 02:16 PM »
After all the mistakes we see Yoda make during the prequal trilogy, Yoda goes into hiding. Shouldn't he have tried to get in contact with the surviving Jedi, regroup and retrain to go against the Emporer and Vader?

The Prequel Trilogy / ROTS soundtrack
« on: July 23, 2008, 01:09 PM »
What are your opinions of the ROTS soundtrack? For the most part I though it was pretty good but not as good as it should have been. The creepy music when Anakin is talking to Palpy is good and the Battle of the Heros music was good but not as good as the Duel of the Fates.

However, why is the throne room from ANH in the end credits? What does this have to do with anything? At the end, everything ends on a dark note, then we hear the "we beat the empire music" from the next movie. Why?

The Prequel Trilogy / Are the Jedi anti-jedi?
« on: July 22, 2008, 05:51 PM »
Just listening to a podcast that was discussing AOTC. Looking at all the things that the Jedi missed like red lightsabers popping up everywhere and someone building a clone army, shouldn't the Jedi be seeing these things and put two and two together and do what is good for the galaxy early on instead of wondering what is going on during the clone wars and doing nothing?

Why do the Jedi act stupid and not realize what is really going on and who is really pulling the strings? Why do the Jedi go and attack separtist planets without finding peaceful methods to resolve problems? Why do they cheat at dice games and bend Gungan minds to their needs? Why make the gungans fight and die against the droid army while they, for the most part, safely go into the palace to find the viceroy? Why do the jedi give contradicting messages about using your feelings and ignore them to Anakin? Do the Jedi ever consider that the Republic might really be broken and the Separists might be right?

Everything they do seems to be completely anti-Jedi morals and ethics.

Other Collectibles / McDonald's Clone Wars Happy Meal Toys
« on: July 11, 2008, 02:42 PM »
Here is a picture of the new McDonalds Clone Wars toys. To me none of these make sense. Are the characters driving the ship or is there just a huge bobble head stuck to their antenna?

See what happens when you park your AT-AT in East L.A. overnight.

This guy is up for auction at Christies.

Watto's Junk Yard / Paranormal Tales
« on: May 12, 2008, 01:21 PM »
Here is a thread to post your paranormal stories. Anything the mods will allow.

Let me start it off with this one:

Freaky Phone Calls

Telephones, cordless phones, cell phones... These communication tools have become indispensable parts of our daily lives. With them we can connect with just about anyone anywhere from virtually anywhere. Voices, conversations and the business of every day moving at the speed of light along wires, through fiber optics, across the sky, under the ocean and sometimes into space and back. Is it possible, however, that these electronic gadgets that we've come to take for granted sometimes make connections beyond what can be logically explained?

Consider these true stories from people who have had unexplained, puzzling and sometimes downright unnerving experiences with their phones.

The Impossibly Cloned Call
Many years ago, when married to my first husband, I received a telephone call at about 4:20 a.m. It was my elder brother telling me he had just gotten married. The call woke up my husband and I spoke with my brother for about five minutes. I hung up and went back to sleep. About a week or so later, I was visiting at my mother's home and this same brother was there with his wife. I thanked him for calling me... and I got this odd stare and his mouth fell open. He told me he had called our mother, but he had never called me at all. I turned to my mother and she related the entire conversation she had had with him, and then I related the entire conversation I had had with him - and these conversations were literally identical and at the exact same time. - Barbara

The Phones That Called Each Other
This strange incident happened in our home at Christmas. My husband had his cell phone on our dining room table and it was turned off for the evening. My purse was in our library, where my husband was playing a computer game with our daughter. In my purse I had my cell phone turned on. As my husband and daughter were playing, my cell phone rang. My husband picked it up and it said the incoming call was coming in from his cell phone! He thought our son was playing a prank on him and ran into the room we were in and told our son to stop messing around with his cell phone. We laughed at him and asked him what he was talking about. He said, "Your phone just rang and it said the call was coming in from my phone!" This is where things get weird! My son and I were both in the same room together talking and neither one of us had left the room. We weren't even in the same room as my husband's cell phone at all. My husband checked his phone and sure enough it was off just as he had left it. We can't figure out how a call came into my phone from his phone when his phone was off and there was certainly no one in the room with his phone! Strange indeed. We were all pretty mystified over the whole incident for sure! - Janine T.

The Phone Call That Never Was
My mum usually picks me up from work and she doesn't work far from me. One Tuesday night, we were driving home when I asked her how my dad's computer classes were going. My dad usually attended the computer classes every Tuesday night. She said she didn't know as she hadn't spoken to him about it. She asked me why. I replied, "Well, when I was speaking to him he said he was having some trouble. They had been given three assignments to complete, but he couldn't finish assignment number two as the computer wouldn't 'save as.' I think he eventually managed to do them all though."

"Oh, right." she said. That night, with the conversation with my mum forgotten, I was sitting watching TV, when my dad knocked on my door. He said, "I was speaking to mum earlier about the conversation you had about my computer class. How did you know we had three assignments and I had trouble with the second one?"

Confused, I said, "You told me that on the phone."

"No, I didn't. There is no way you could have known that because I have just come from my computer class. You had the conversation with mum before I went, and what you told mum happened tonight. I couldn't have known we had three assignments as I missed last week's class."

We both just sat there looking at each other trying to figure out how I knew what was going to happen before it did. I was sure we had spoken on the phone about it, but how could we if it hadn't happened? The strange thing is, I can remember my dad telling me what happened on the phone, but I can't recall how, where and when. - Cian B.
