But what about the United Federation of Planets??

Someone has even more time on their hands than I do.
2002-03-19 07:09:31 PM  
Well, that certainly wasn't dorky at all. I'm going to go fill out my brackets for the Galactic Cup of Limmie now.

I got this crazy page emailed to me somehow earlier today. One look and I deleted it heh
2002-03-19 07:12:15 PM  
Actually, this URL is at the end of the most recent Star Wars trailer. I actually noticed it the first time I watched the thing, should've submitted it to the Fark gods that be.
2002-03-19 07:13:44 PM  
um..what the hell is this?

"Mama, don't let your babies grow up to be Star Wars geeks..."
2002-03-19 07:17:44 PM  
Who's the little Star Wars geek with too much time on his hands?
*pinches cheek*
Why you are, you are, yes you are.
2002-03-19 07:20:18 PM  
That did not amuse me at all.
I want a refund.

"Corellia Closes Borders", *gasp!*

Don't count me wrong, I like star wars a LOT, but the last thing I want to read is cheesy SW fan fiction news updates that don't coordinate with the plot in general. I mean how can a region of space close off borders without guarding above or below them? Hello, anyone ever here of the all mighty Z-axis? Okay...ranting done, now to go and sit like a good fan, waiting for the SWG beta to open and apply.

If you find this video, get it!!! A 70's parody of the Star Wars original movie.

Has anyone seen this:


Is the star wars gansta rap. farking funny.
2002-03-19 07:26:33 PM  
I, too, was going to make a cute comment about a Star Wars geek with too much time on his hands, but when I noticed that I couldn't really click the nuna...
Turns out the site is owned by Lucasfilm and the geeks are being highly paid for that time.

PS. Did anyone else take the poll?
2002-03-19 07:27:54 PM  
I wish the chicks would get out of the way, so I could see the new Starfighter intercepter. I guess things are the same, no matter what galaxy you're from. Pick up a Bike mag, or a Car mag, or a Republic Guardian mag, and there's always some scantilly clad chick standing in front of the vehicle, blocking your view. Sheesh.

Interesting parallel to modern Internet ads. I'm just glad there wasn't some asinine Flash pop-up ad asking me to purchase an Imperial chocolate bar or a Landspeeder or something.

Hardware Wars was great!

"What's wrong Augie Ben Dogie? Did you feel a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices cried out in anguish and were suddenly silenced?"

"No, just a little headache."
2002-03-19 07:31:38 PM  
Dude, they have a six digit planet code for weather information, but the galaxy has over a million worlds in it. That's FUBAR...

(or I could just assume some of them aren't inhabited, but where's the fun in that?)
2002-03-19 07:33:27 PM  

it's just like real news....

'cept it's for geeks!
2002-03-19 07:33:43 PM  
this is extra-special sad.
2002-03-19 07:34:01 PM  
It's too big to be a Spaceship!

I don't know about you guys, but I thought it was pretty funny...

STOP LAUGHING AT ME!!! *OBB runs away crying*
2002-03-19 07:43:10 PM  
Hmm...a nerdy fansite run by a major company...nothing is more

than when they have to hype themselves after years of loyal fans...

*** My Boobiesing***

man that was pathetic, i have no idea why anyone would want to devote that much time to something so trivial. go paint a picture or something
2002-03-19 08:04:14 PM  
Hard to tell whether this is sad or scary. Oh what the hell...its both.

"Geeks...can't live with 'em...tastes like chicken."
2002-03-19 08:04:38 PM  
My first reaction was "what a sweet job that would be!" but then I realized that I would probably have to get 8-inch thick glasses and snort a lot when I laugh, so I have officially changed my mind. That is all.
2002-03-19 08:05:48 PM  
I like starwars, but this is pathetic
2002-03-19 08:06:54 PM  
Okay, who's obsessed.

Hey!!! 'Tastes like chicken' is my pinch phrase!!!
2002-03-19 09:01:44 PM  
this is the site at the end of the new SW trailer from lucas. must be run/owned by him?
2002-03-19 09:56:49 PM  
I checked the webmaster info (linked by the alien language gibberish at the bottom of the screen) and it's an official Lucasfilm site.

Getting paid to do this must be a fanboy's dream come true.....
2002-03-20 10:06:14 AM  
Hardware Wars wasn't funny when it came out, and it isn't now.

Thumb Wars, on the other hand... :)
2002-03-20 11:52:20 AM  
I submitted this right after the trailer came out. Oh well. It's still as lame as it ever was.
