The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A death. What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old-age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work 40 years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating...you finish off as an orgasm and a gleam in someone's eye.

I found this commentary attributed to George Carlin, Andy Rooney and a few others. What it is really about is that it reads like a plot synopsis of Philip K. Dick's COUNTER CLOCK WORLD, where everyone lives backwards.
Trying to set the record straight....

SLOWLY GOING DOWN THE TUBES
This is the fate of STAR WARS and all subsequent media attachments, including all the plastic crap and dolls and games and "whatever" they can stick a picture of Yoda onto.
To start: I have a copy of THE PHANTOM MENACE. It was gotten fewer viewings in this house than HORROR OF PARTY BEACH. A large chunk of the plot seems to feel an awful lot like THE INVISIBLE BOY, so much so that a lawsuit could be created to deal with it. I have only watched the DVD of PHANTOM MENACE once. It does not live. The HORROR DVD has been gone over five times because its...ah...unusual. It has more life in it.
And Jar Jar Binks. Some fans think there should be an edition where he is edited out, leaving a blank that people talk to, and probably a mental filler information bit would be "it's the force". Or there could be computer re enhancement, where Jar Jar is replaced by Pee Wee Herman or Howard the Duck. Or something.
