And Another Thing

It’s been a slow day over here, but I am happy to announce I’m back in the mode of outward creation. I also have some burning questions about the Star Wars franchise.

Why can’t R2 units speak? 3P0 talks. All those droids walk around making corny jokes. In fact, most of those robots speak thousands of languages. But the only way R2 can communicate is through a series of boops and beeps? Is there a sinister background to the R2 units inability to speak?

…and another thing

When Luke loses his hand he’s hooked up with a new one that is exactly like a human hand. But Darth Vader still has to go on as a stumpy, charred remnant of a man in a suit? I understand the significance behind the Darth Vader visage, the foreboding breathing – all of that. But it must be part of the reason Anakin stayed Dark Side, having to wear an iron lung for the rest of your existence is more than enough reason to hate everything. I mean, there’s no way he’s getting laid, right?

That’s all I got for today folks, thanks for reading.

A Short List of Predictions

I was on Reddit yesterday and saw a thread on Ask Reddit titled “Time travelers of Reddit, what’s your favorite part of the future?” I was originally going to use the idea for a writing exercise to be done with Lighten the Attic. We didn’t get the chance last night (though I’m sure we’ll revisit it), so I jotted down some of my own Nostradamus-like predictions, because sadly – I am not a time traveler.

So what do I think might happen in the future?
