91 days to The Force Awakens.

In May of 1991, Timothy Zahn gave us the masterpiece known as Heir to the Empire, introducing an amazing number of characters (now Legends, thanks Disney) who carried the story forward along with our usual favorites. If you ever doubt that Zahn is the greatest of all SW writers, consider he gave us:

Mara Jade
Talon Karrde
Aves
Thrawn
Pelleaon
the Noghri
Winter
Joruus C'baoth
Jacen Solo
Jaina Solo

all in just this one BOOK. And then added the awesome Garm Bel Iblis in Dark Force Rising.

Make-Up is also a helluva thing! Take anybody away from professional make-up artists and then start taking cell phone shots after drinking in a pub... yeah, you aren't gonna look very good!!!

That pic of Harrison Ford isn't fair because he is made up and, well, he's Harrison Ford. Dude has always looked good (no homo).
Dude. I look my best at 2:00am after a night pounding a few pints. Thats really cool that he's in Portmagee. Granted that's on of only 2 places that ships launch to take you out to the Skelligs. I was born about 1-1.5 hours east of there.

So what you're sayin is that Rey is actually the daughter of Luke??

Everyone thinks she's Han and Leia's kid, but just thought that was a cool parallel. But it's entirely possible she is.

I love those books so much.

What are, two actors and Hayden Christensen, Alex.

Correct, and our daily double!

Poor Hayden. Some of his other stuff is actually decent to ok. I'm convinced he was horrible because of a combination of George's writing and directing. I can only imagine their on set conversations going some like

Hayden: "So I should be like a really cool dude that people can relate to right?"

George: "Whoa there little buddy that's why they pay me the big bucks. You need to act like the poutiest little entitled beaach you have ever seen. I mean we're talkin full bore, sorostitute didn't get a new lambo from daddy this christmas times 2. Maybe even times 3."

Hayden: "I don't know George. That combined with these awful romance lines is bound to ruin my career. But I guess they pay you the big bucks so I'll go with it. Anything else?"

George: "Oh yeah. In addition to being a weak ass punk, you need to be suuuuper creepy. Like stalker/serial killer level creepy."

Would be friggin awesome! At some point we have to have more Skywalkers, right!? I mean, the Skywalkers are the central characters to all "main" Star Wars movies. They can't end wit Luke I hope.

And as far as Hayden goes... I'm pretty sure nobody, who is suppose to be the future Darth Vader, could deliver the line, "It's not fair!" without the audience cringing! No win situation!

I mean, we all assumed she'd be a Solo based on the EU and Han and Leia hooking up, but what better way to throw all the nerds for a loop than by flipping the script?? I would love it personally.

Reading Dark Disciple now, so was thinking. Better character... Ventress or Mara Jade?

Mara by 6 million republic credits.

I love Mara, but honestly I think that Ventress is a better character. Sith assassin turned bounty hunter is such a cool journey.

I like Mara's stint with Talon Kardde's organization, probably what puts her over the top for me. I find the "Firefly" part of Star Wars the most fascinating and the woefully underused, unexplored. The day to day operations of Kardde's organization in the Zahn books is great reading; seeing a fringe organization operating in the world of giant militaries and Force users, and largely stay one step ahead of everyone.

Her closing fight with Jacen Solo is also pretty great.

I also feel bad for the guy, he has proved to be a pretty good actor in other stuff. (Life As A House was great.)

I posted about this a while back, but in case some of you missed it -- If you want a nice recap of all Star Wars-related news each week, you should check out Collider's Jedi Council shows on youtube. They're about an hour and a half long, but definitely the best source of SW related news that I've come across. Here's the lastest one;

From writing fan fiction to not having 90 minutes of free time a week. That is terrifying.

I don't know about yall, but mine are a few years away from being about to enjoy movies like Avengers. But when it happens I'm going to live at the theaters with them.

Never tell them the odds.

You did name them Luke and Leia, right?

I finally got halfway done with Shadow of a Doubt after three months. I love it, just no time.

Planning on introducing the gf to Star Wars tonight. She's never seen them before. How shall I proceed?

Classic: IV, V, VI, I, II, III

Personal Preference: IV, V, I, II, III, VI

I would try out the second one. To me it seems like a really cool way to watch the series for the first time, and you preserve the big twist.
