July 24th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 27 Comments

My weekend involved far more Star Wars discussion than should be allowed by law, and during the course of it, some of my friends revealed that they were not aware of the impending disaster that is “Clone Wars“.  Nor were they aware that the plot of this movie evidently depends on the kidnapping of Jabba [...]

Patrick Stewart Recites the Alphabet

June 4th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 23 Comments

Patrick Stewart was disgusted…DISGUSTED, with the undignified turns that James Earl Jones and Jackie Robinson took reciting the alphabet.
