In the line for the show floor (not the show store). It feels like I'm 4000th in line but that could be an over or underestimate

And the guy next to me just started The Last Jedi on his iPad. An auspicious beginning

That does suck. Being both stuck in a long line and being subjected to The Last Jedi.

Look at him blankly, eye to eye, scowl a little

Grab iPad, toss over your shoulder

Grunt. Drink some milk.

And this is the reason I'm in the bar enjoying a beer while the line snakes around the building a few more times.

1:30.5 seconds of evil and badassery, and half a second clip of Phasma.

Will Hux be redeemed in Episode IX? Part of me thinks he should just be disposed of like Vader did to so many officers... but then again, JJ made him almost a rival to Kylo so maybe he has a better end for him.

It would be hard to course change the direction of Hux after how he was depicted in TLJ.

A version of this would have been amaaaaazing...

Quote:

"Everyone talks about the shock of realizing that on 'Force Awakens' I don't come in until the last page," [Hamill] said (via THR). "A bigger shock to me was them killing Han Solo before Luke could ever see his best friend again."

He added, "I mean, it might be selfishly motivated, but I said, 'Holy cow, that's a real missed opportunity.' Even having the three of us together, even briefly. I pitched [J.J.] Abrams on the idea of, 'You can still have me come in at the very end, but how about this. How about Leia's trying to contact me telepathically, she gets frustrated because there's no answers, so she rushes to the new Death Star - that's three, so far." (Nice little jab at the overused Death Star storyline, Hamill.)

"And she almost gets there but she gets stopped by two Stormtroopers, and just before she's abducted, one Stormtrooper turns to the other one, blows him away, pulls off his helmet and says, 'Hi, sis, I'm here to rescue you.' I say, 'It'll blow the roof off the joint, I'm still in it at the very end,'" Hamill continued.

Now, this might delight many fans of the original trilogy, who were hoping that the new films would pick up with the same characters and continue the story of Han, Luke, and Leia. However, it's clear that Lucasfilm wanted the focus to be on the new folks, such as Rey, Kylo, Finn, and Poe.

"I think it's more effective to have people that really have a history with Han Solo witness his death and be unable to stop it," the actor said. "His wife, the mother of his child, his best friend, instead of two characters that have known him, what, 20 minutes? But they get the keys to the kingdom, and they're the deciders, so you just have to live with it."


Damn it, J.J., I will never get over the fact that we didn't get at least one scene with Luke, Leia, and Han together again. It STILL baffles me how much they botched that...

The Mandalorian debut (and the Disney+ launch on the whole) officially set for November 12. $6.99/month or $69.99/year, which are pretty great price points...

I'm sure that's a temporary price point.

Relatedly, Netflix told me today that their price is going up another dollar a month.

This is messed up (thread)...

I know from working with Reedpop on other things, this is not that uncommon for those events where tickets/badges/passes are assigned to a single individual and cannot be traded/sold to someone else.

They do this because having access to the name and email is necessary to both validate and to ensure communications go to the person registered to the pass.

This is needed because people use their passes to reserve spaces in rooms, sign up for sessions, etc., and confirm that any receipts go to the email on record.

That said, this "employee" absolutely abused the system and policy by using the information for personal reasons, even if "well intentioned".

I would bet they finally set up a tiered system going forward; scrubs can only see X (e.e.g, enforcers), scrubs level 2 (sales persons) can see X+Y, and scrubs level 3 have all access, and likely limited to specific customer service, security, etc. Attendees will just have to go visit different tiered locations or deal with multiple people at a single location to resolve issues.

That's interesting. And yeah, based on the way the Celebration account responded, I bet they system will change going forward, likely in the way you laid out.
