Apropos:   http://www.stilldesigning.com/shatner/getalife_alt.htm

Yes, I know the difference, but the point is the same.

I found it interesting that 'lightsaber' was only used once in the whole movie.
But in the other two original movies it was not used much either. I can only think of two times in ROTJ and cannot think if any in ESB at the moment.

One day I'd like to have the kind of free time it'd take to do this. I wouldn't do this with it, but I'd sure like the time.

I just don't get it.

But your uncle needs you for just one more season. You can't leave him now.

Does this include all the words spoken by the Sand People and the Jawas? Otherwise I'm not interested.

What good is all my uncle's work if it's taken over by the Empire?

This waaaay too nerdy, but I figure you could automate the creation using downloaded subtitle files and a filter to inject them into a database with time stamps and feed that into a very complicated session of virtualdub to come up with the final product.

Exactly. Reading the script into a sorted array and attaching counts is simple..... splicing together video edits? I don't know how you'd do that, but it must have been automated some way.

Vader's "WAT?!" is my favorite line reading in the whole movie.

Also, I enjoyed hearing "Alderaan" 20 times in a row followed by Vader yelling, "ALIVE".

So all R2D2 lines were in the B's?

/Trying to decide where the Wookie's lines ended up.  After all, he did get the final line in the first movie released.

You could teach yourself enough Ruby or Python to do this in a week of playing around on your lunch hour. You'd just have to grab a script from the web.

This is not even original. Terry Jones and the late great Douglas Adams performed this marvelous feat some time ago in one of the best trolls ever.

That was still more enjoyable than the actual game.

Sadly, you are absolutely correct about that. The game was utter crap. The book itself was marginal.

I downloaded and printed out a walkthrough. There was no challenge so the game aspect wasn't there but damn if it wasn't hilarious and beautiful.

Sounds to me like someone hit the wrong key in emacs and instead of saying "oh crap" they said "oH COOL I GOT TO SHOW ALL OF MY FRIENDS!!  HEY MOM CHECK THIS OUT!  AND BRING THE CAT"

jaylectricity: My god, I was expecting it in print. They made a damn video?


That is exactly what I thought.  But, since this was made by "...computer scientist Tom Murphy", I'm going to go out on a limb and say it was automated.

"R2D2" 4, "R2" 30 times.
"C3PO" 4, "threepio" 13.
"Chewbacca" 1, "Chewie" 9.
"Ben" 13, "Obi-wan" 20 including 4 by Obi-wan himself?
 
2014-06-03 11:51:56 PM  
"Chewie" and "chewy" were two different words?

As were it's and its. Anyone bothering to do what he did would bother with context.

I did not watch the whole thing through, but one of Chewbacca's vocalizations is identified as the 153rd instance of "you." There may be others.

I was trying to find "YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-"

I think you and I think alike. I used to write "music" and I did it all manually. But it would never hold a candle to the guys who were popular because they had the software that did the work for them.

I'm not saying it's wrong, I'm saying that I was wrong for not learning the software. So yeah, maybe it was automated, but either they learned and used the right software or maybe they even wrote the code to go through the movie and separate words and alphabetize them.
