Force Ghosts Debate

My wife just let me know that she’s in an online debate regarding the Force Ghosts at the end of the special edition of Return of the Jedi.

No. Luke would not see a young Anakin as a force ghost. No No No No No! Never! He never saw his father as a young man. He only saw his face one time in his entire life and it was as he lay dying on the Death Star literally minutes before! No, he would not see young Anakin! He would see Anakin as he knew him! An old, wrinkled, pasty skinned dude!

And if he did, why doesn’t he see young Obi-Wan? Why doesn’t he see young Yoda? What the fuck, Lucas? Of all the stupid, senseless things to see in the prequels and the special editions, replacing the old Anakin with the young Anakin at the end of Return of the Jedi is the dumbest by far!

AARRRGGGHHHH!!!!!

Sorry… needed to vent.

The debate she was having was actually a cross over. It had something to do with Force Ghosts being involved in the new Ghost Busters movie. That made me wonder… could a Proton Pack hold a Force Ghost? Something to ponder, my movie franchise loving friends. Something to ponder.

Sunday Night

Sitting in my room waiting for the new episode of the walking dead spin off, World Beyond to start. I had a horrible sleep yesterday, but an epic super sleep last night. I raked a chunk of the front yard this afternoon and I did my 30 minutes of exercise, and somehow all of these things have combined to make me super tired tonight. I’m so tired my eyes are blurring.

I just started tonight’s fast. I’ve been playing with intermittent fasting for 82 days. This is my 82nd fast in a row. I haven’t missed a day. Who woulda thunk it? I doubt my weigh in on Tuesday will go well but given that it’s Thanksgiving, I think anything that isn’t a huge increase will be a win. Also… I might be imagining this… I can’t say for sure… but I think my jeans might be feeling a smidge loose today.

Is Walking Dead World Beyond good? We get the last two episodes of the first season tonight and I still can’t tell for sure. It’s not bad, I can say that with some certainty. I just can’t figure out if it’s good. Gimple, am I right? I just wish AMC would have more variety in their commercials. I mean, if you’re going to blitz us with a commercial break every four minutes, the least you could do is mix it up a little.

Okay. Shows on and my eyes are giving up the fight. I, your humble narrator*, will talk to you tomorrow.


*The “your humble narrator” is a reference to A Clockwork Orange. David Prowse was in that movie. He passed away today. He was in another memorable movie. He didn’t have any lines but his character did. He played the character on screen and then some guy named James Earl Jones added the voice later. What was the character that David Prowse played?

Darth Vader.

Rest in peace, Lord Vader.

Wrong

Darth Vader would not celebrate Christmas. He would cut off Christmas’ head with his light saber, them blow up Christmas’ home planet with his Death Star. This thing is 100% inaccurate.
