I was genuinely torn on one of them.

As far as suggestions SW vehicles or droids could be interesting (and super nerdy), and GoT characters would be fun.

Vehicles sounds fun, but I can't imagine a scenario where the Falcon wouldn't win. I've done some preliminaries for a Game of Thrones character one and will probably lean that way. I had a good looking preliminary field of about 50 characters started last week until I realized I had left out Tywin Lannister, Mance Rayder, and Stannis

As a huge movie scores nerd, I vote for best themes.

But, a GoT characters sounds super fun too.

I love the idea of quotes. You rebel scum!

1 seed "You rebel scum!" vs 16 seed "that's rebel scum!"

Fair point. And for sure, just narrowing down GoT characters is an exercise in itself.

Could go the full 68 with 4 play-ins, err, opening round matchups

10.5 hours to go in the semifinals and we've already hit 100 votes (totaled 107 yesterday).

one is 63-37, the other is 55-45.

I will have to confess that I like the aesthetics of the Imperial Star Destroyers more than the Falcon. But I could very well be in the minority.

I also have never gotten the love for Slave 1... it's a weirdly designed ship, period.

Gimmie something like the Y-wing. Or those Naboo-type star ships.

I have always been partial to X-wings. Would the Falcon be the Falcon without Han as Captain?

Here's a good pic of our final 4.

Only one way to find out! The hotties tourney has had some upsets.

I think if we do ships, the regions should be specific to the era/medium. Do two regions of movies (maybe one good guys and one bad guys), a region from animation, and a region of EU? That way some of the big showdowns like X-Wing vs Y-Wing or the Falcon wouldn't be Final 4 matchups.

Just had a list of probably 50 starships written out when Texags glitched out on me.

Write longer posts in Word or Google Docs, then copy/paste it into TexAgs.

Yep. I have an Apple Magic Mouse and the swipe gesture is SO sensitive. I can't tell you how many times I've been in the middle of a long post, my finger accidentally swiped left, it took me back to the previous page, and I lost everything. And yeah, TexAgs will glitch up from time to time as well. I learned my lesson long ago. All lengthy posts go in my Notes app first.

If you just navigate forward it doesn't keep the text you've written?

For me, no. When I go back to the reply page it's either blank or the text box is frozen.

That's weird. Maybe post about that on technical support. Or stop using apple

REBEL YELL: Leia, Jyn Make Date for Title Tilt in Road to Jabba's Finale


One day after knocking off the frequently naked Mother of Dragons in a mild upset, Jyn Erso was at it again Saturday night in the Road to Jabba's Palace semifinals. With a new record 155 votes cast, Erso edged Natalie Portman's Padme Amidala 79-76 to earn a trip to the championship match.

"What chance did I have?" Erso asked rhetorically at her post-matchup press conference. "The question is 'what choice did you have?' Padme Amidala? Fell in love with the biggest mimbo on the Outer Rim. Died of a broken heart despite just giving birth to twin babies and having thousands of friends back on Coruscant getting persecuted by the new Emperor. You give way to a limp noodle like that and you condemn the galaxy to an eternity of bad acting! The time for a hot bad-ass is now!"

A bitter Amidala did what she did best in Revenge of the Sith: start crying about it.
"I didn't believe what I was seeing! Muckraker96 was right about you TexAgs...you've changed! I don't know you anymore! TexAgs..you're breaking my heart! You're going down a path I can't follow! Because of who you've voted for!"

Erso advances to the championship round against Princess Leia Skywalker Organa Solo who defeated Rey Nobody 93-62. When told that the fanboys of TexAgs were planning a victory part in her honor, Organa suggested that she'd just as soon kiss a Wookiee.

Rey was so upset by her loss that she threw a bolt of lightning into a transport ship, then started flying from planet to planet over and over again in like 15 minutes on a wild goose chase, ultimately realizing that the key to everlasting success in this galaxy is a bunch of dead people whispering in your ear and an extra lightsaber.

VOTE FOR THE TITLE!






Talk about bringing balance to the Force.

I was going to raise hell about Portman losing to Felicity, but I guess I can get on board after seeing this last round of pictures of her. Portman is still prettier though.

No issues with Rey losing. I just don't think she's that great.

Not sure of the brackets, but pretty sure it's gonna come down to Natalie Portman vs Emilia Clarke.
