@Gaz: That's going to bring up another solid question, too — what will be canon and what won't when this is all said and done? The movies have always been straight canon, no ifs, ands, or buts, and if they start changing things around, it's really going to wreck what the fans have always been able to consider 'canon' or not.

That's already happened with the prequel trilogy. For example, Boba Fett has different back stories in the expanded universe novels that differ wildly from that of Attack of the Clones (I can't remember if the EU stories are consistent with each other or not). I found those stories way better than the official movie version, and I think Lucas would have done well to use existing stories rather than what he went with (or just omit Boba Fett, he was only included in the prequels due to his popularity among fans).

this is true... i'm just worried that they'll go off on a tangent that preempts the Heir to the Empire trilogy somehow altogether, or changes key parts of it, and I really don't want to see any of that changed. I like it the way it is, lol.

I guess I shouldn't get so worked up over it, but it's hard when damn near everyone you know is talking about it at the same time across multiple sites D:

@tealovertoma: we've been having an Angel marathon at the house lately (it's on Netflix instant if anyone's interested~)... it's just a different style of one-liner, the pace is quicker. i keep imagining Han and Leia interacting like Angel and Cordelia and it's making my brain hurt, it really is :(

As for Episode VII's content, Lucas did have some general ideas, but who knows whether they'd go with that or not (he was pretty adamant that there would be no sequel trilogy, after all...). I can see Disney just using the Heir to the Empire trilogy instead since it (a) picks up pretty quick from VI and (b) is already written and considered canon.

... oh dear lord i hadn't thought about that at all. yikes.

that said, i've seen multiple people now suggesting that Joss Whedon be given the job of revamping Star Wars and pulling it into this century. I have to say that I love all things Buffy and Angel, I love love love Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, but Firefly/Serenity bored me to tears and if that's the kind of thing he'd wind up doing to Star Wars, he can keep it. No thanks. I also think the zippy one-liner style of dialogue would be very out of place in a Star Wars film.

@Morphtroid: They've been featuring it, yes, but they haven't owned it and had it under their direct control before. It's one thing to be forced to work with someone else and get their approval for everything you want to do (because Lucas was/is a control freak for srs), but now that it's theirs and theirs alone...

i used to wonder if it were humanly possible for Star Wars to get any worse. Now that the very real possibility of such is staring me directly in the face, i find myself pining for the old days when they used to always show the original trilogy on like TBS every Thanksgiving and the whole family would just sit down and watch Han shoot first, Luke fall without screaming, no fancy explosions and stupid extended celebration scenes at the end of RotJ, no worrying about whether it was in HD or widescreen or whatever else might be different about it this time around. wonder what 'disney original' kid they're grooming to jam into this next trilogy?
sigh...

So i got my parents on the phone this evening; they have been without power since 6pm, while mine had flickered a bit but stayed on. Literally right as i said that to my Dad, my power went out. Lol. Thankfully was only out for an hour.

So far, it hasn't been that bad for me on a personal level since i'm just inland enough so that flooding isn't a threat unless The Island is going to sink to the bottom of the ocean (and that only happens in Sideways Universes ;) )

Glad to hear from you @the_shpydar. I was def thinking of you during all this mess! :o

Things like this are entirely at your own risk, 3Dash. If you're worried, try contacting Nintendo proper — at least if they say it won't, you'll have it in writing if they try to give you trouble about it later on down the line. :3

@RetroGBHippie: I think you may have missed LolWut's intent — you had said you still weren't sure whether you'd have the money for one at launch and questioned what the purpose of geting a console at launch was anyway, insinuating the people who chose to do so were foolish. LolWut explained that the people getting one were excited, and just because you may not have the available funds when it hits doesn't make everyone who does have said funds a 'stuck-up prude' (though i'm not so sure if 'prude' was the correct word to use there, haha). LolWut wasn't calling you a prude at all so far as I'm reading that particular exchange.

idk what it is, but sleeping on a proper futon was probably the most refreshing sleep I've ever had — i wouldn't discount it entirely until you've had the chance to give it a shot, Mac. I'd love to have an authentic one here in the US.

@WingedFish: It's not actually just a sheet and pillow, it's called a 'futon' — and it's nothing like the 'futon' we have here in the US. Japanese homes and apartments generally have a much smaller footprint than homes and apartments in the West, so space is at a premium; there's normally not enough space to have multiple beds set up and lying out all the time. a common futon in Japan is a very thick, padded mat that is rolled up and stored away during the day in a closet or a separate compartment in the room, thus that one room can serve as bedroom at night and normal living space during the day. They're quite comfortable, really. the Wikipedia article has more information if you're interested :3

@k8sMum: It's a shame to see you go; i enjoyed having someone around who felt the same way I do about certain things. Please do let us know if you'd like to return :(

@Radixxs, Oddy: so far as I know, he stopped using his Twitter account because he was afraid he'd slip and say something he shouldn't on accident; i believe he's also toned back his use of other social media sites as well for that very reason. He doesn't want to accidentally compromise his job, and I can't blame him, even though I wish it were otherwise. :(

@TheDreamingHawk: iirc, 'moderators' were what set him off the last time he took a break from NL. Please don't poke him about it.

@Mickeymac: Sorry, it sounds like sensationalist parroting to me, and it doesn't quite match the cases involved, that's why i read it the way i did. those articles also aren't taking into account the fact that the cases being decided were between people purposely purchasing these goods for resale here in the US as opposed to the average joe who bought an iPad for personal use while in China and wants to get rid of it a few years later now that he's home. I can't see Apple coming down on that one person or such a suit holding water in court; there's a big difference between the potential cases.
