Triple Word Score!

I so love the faceless, endless, merciless Stormtroopers. They're the only fearsome entity in the universe that couldn't hit a couple kids running down the halls of their space station or spot the droids that CLEARLY were the ones they were looking for.

Just in case you thought he died ten years ago after making Shazam! for Disney, Shaq is alive and still in the NBA... for this season.  He announced his retirement this past week on Twitter.  150 characters or less to wrap up almost two decades of your life, that's not depressing at all.

Terrible news in other media this week; Glenn Beck has announced his show will be done the end of June 2011. This is largely because people stopped watching his overdramatic, shameless soap-boxing for attention.  This is bad news because he's being rumored to be leaving a station people aren't really watching and getting onto a web series and polluting the internet outright.  I can't say I'll search him out, but hopefully it goes the way most web series go and fades away to general obscurity.  It will make things more difficult for the Daily Show, which may be a breath of fresh air in itself.

I'm also having a movie nervous breakdown.  There are a bunch of movies I'm interested in all out right now, Bridesmaids, The Hangover Part II, the new Pirates installment and the new X-Men prequel (which is getting some good critical buzz).  All of this means either selling blood and plasma to afford it all, or getting a job at the movie theatre.  Or both.

Until we meet again, my friends.

Punch it, Chewie!
