"I was a guy who wanted to make independent movies outside the Hollywood system. I lived in San Francisco. I still do. Now I want to make some movies about other ideas, other people, other places. I couldn't have started these movies when I was 75, so I did them while I had the energy they took to do them. Maybe I'll have that energy again, but I can't count on that. I wrote and directed some movies. By its definition, a myth has a life of its own.

Hey, I hear there's a new movie coming out about some wars in space or was it stars warring in space? Something like that.

Maybe someone could do a little research and post about it? Preferably with lots of pictures of Natalie Portman involved.

I was trying to understand why someone mentioned the taste of Pepsi Blue in this thread and went looking around for some connection to SW. I found it, but the comment went away. All for nothing? Perhaps not, as I did find another movie-related (though not directly) piece of swag.

The only way this could be anything other than utterly psychotic is if, upon placing an order, the company sends a group of stern peers to one's house to just stare disapprovingly instead of actually shipping the product.

...The young Obi-Wan Kenobi is not, I hasten to add, the most nauseating figure onscreen; nor is R2-D2 or even C-3PO, although I still fail to understand why I should have been expected to waste twenty-five years of my life following the progress of a beeping trash can and a gay, gold-plated Jeeves.

No, the one who gets me is Yoda. May I take the opportunity to enter a brief plea in favor of his extermination? Any educated moviegoer would know what to do, having watched that helpful sequence in “Gremlins” when a small, sage-colored beastie is fed into an electric blender. A fittingly frantic end, I feel, for the faux-pensive stillness on which the Yoda legend has hung. At one point in the new film, he assumes the role of cosmic shrink—squatting opposite Anakin in a noirish room, where the light bleeds sideways through slatted blinds. Anakin keeps having problems with his dark side, in the way that you or I might suffer from tennis elbow, but Yoda, whose reptilian smugness we have been encouraged to mistake for wisdom, has the answer. “Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose,” he says. Hold on, Kermit, run that past me one more time. If you ever got laid (admittedly a long shot, unless we can dig you up some undiscerning alien hottie with a name like Jar Jar Gabor), and spawned a brood of Yodettes, are you saying that you’d leave them behind at the first sniff of danger? Also, while we’re here, what’s with the screwy syntax? Deepest mind in the galaxy, apparently, and you still express yourself like a day-tripper with a dog-eared phrase book. “I hope right you are.” Break me a fucking give.

Alan Colmes: You had sex with animals?

Neal Horsley: Absolutely. I was a fool. When you grow up on a farm in Georgia, your first girlfriend is the pet dog all dressed up like Slave Girl Leia a mule.

Colmes: Holy Ghost spread out on a Triscuit, I'd get me some of that! Are you suggesting that everybody who grows up on a farm in Georgia has a mule as a girlfriend?

Horsley: It has historically been the case. You people oughtta come down to my farm next Friday, we got a horse with a Darth Vader mask and a sheep with a mouth like Natalie Portman's, I swear are so far removed from reality...
