    "I was wondering something..." - Anakin

    "What?" - Qui-Gon

    "Well, ahhh...you're a Jedi Knight, aren't you?" - Anakin

    "What makes you think that?" - Qui-Gon

    "I saw your laser sword. Only Jedi carry that kind of weapon." - Anakin

    (Qui-Gon leans back and slowly smiles)

    "Perhaps I killed a Jedi and stole it from him." - Qui-Gon

    "I don't think so... No one can kill a Jedi Knight." - Anakin

    "I wish that were so..." - Qui-Gon

    There will be some midnight madness going on tonight. Tonight at 12:01 am, everything AOTC goes on sale. And tomorrow the Across the Stars Music Video airs (MTV and official site for sure).

    But today was no slack day for Star Wars either. 3 new commercials aired, bringing the total # of commercials floating around out there to 6. In the style of the Profession: Bounty Hunter commercial, comes one for
    Anakin , Obi-Wan , and R2-D2 each. Enjoy.

    YOU KNOW YOU'RE LIVING IN THE MODERN ERA WHEN...

    1. Your reason for not staying in touch with family is because they do not have an e-mail address.

    2. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.

    3. Your grandmother asks you to send her a JPEG file of your newborn so she can create a screen saver.

    4. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home.

    5. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 years of your life, is now a cause for
    panic turn around to go get it.

    6. Using real money, instead of credit or debit, to make a purchase would be a hassle and take planning.

    7. You just tried to enter your password on the microwave.

    8. You consider second-day air delivery painfully slow.

    9. You hear most of your jokes via e-mail instead of in person.

    10. You get an extra phone line so you can get phone calls.

    11. You disconnect from the Internet and get this awful feeling, as if you just pulled the plug on a loved one.

    12. You get up in the morning and go online before you bath.

    13. You wake up at 2 AM to go to the bathroom and check your E-mail on your way back to bed.

    14. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. :)

    15. You have no real life but instead spend most of your time at www.sorcerers.net. Sorry all of you, but it had to be said.

    By the way, I am a fan of the site.

    [​IMG] Match one;

    ArchAngel Vs. Soundcard
    Elapsed time; 4 hours.
    0-1


    Match Report; Archangel had a cocky start trying to install network drivers as sound. Then realised the mess. Fumbled with the controlpanels and got 4 conflicts.
    No drivers would work. Online help gave a little, But demanded Winzip.
    Later he found several drivers which gave minor results. from Zero sound or slight humming to Machinegun sound. After a 4 hours struggle with reloads and online driver fetching, the Sound card eventually wore ArchAngel down.
    0-1

    Prematch analasys;

    Tomorrow ArchAngel is likely to split his computer apart and read all technical data on the chipset. possible BIOS war. Sound Blaster on the other will likely have an unchanged tactic. Presumably it will continue its cool strategy. Denying any rationel or irrational data input. It will most likely also force numerous timeconsuming computer restarts.

    Odds 20%- 80%

    If people can be so coiled up over something as insignificant as stray remarks and Stereotypes. Boooring. Pathetic. Useless. But afterall. I am a "Mountain Man". I would rather do some Hiking than be annoyed over what other people think my country is or isn't. Which is indeed true afterall. :heh:

    Obi_Wan Kenobi's Dwelling


    "I have something here for you. Your father wanted you to have this when you were old enough, but your uncle wouldn't allow it. He
    feared you might follow old Obi-Wan on some damned-fool idealistic crusade like your father did." - Obi-Wan

    "What is it?" - Luke

    "Your fathers lightsaber. This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or as random as a blaster. An elegant weapon for a more civilized age. For over a thousand generations the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times, before the Empire." - Obi-Wan

    Across the Stars Music Video can now be seen at the official site. It had it's ups and downs. Ups were they have cleaned up a lot of the images from earlier trailers, the shots are looking gorgeous now. They also sampled new music other than the Across the Stars Love Theme. That's where the downs come into play, because instead of just the Across the Stars Theme like I was expecting, they cut into it with other new music, even music that didn't really fit at times. Sort of like a smorgus board rather than doing real justice to the beautiful theme. But that's ok, go get the soundtrack if you like what you hear. John Williams is awesome. Unfortunately there was no behind the scenes shots or much new footage. Lots of shots of the London Symphony Orchestra and Williams composing. Overall, TPM's Duel of the Fates music video was better IMHO. But on the flip side, Attack of the Clones is a better movie overall than TPM, as we are getting into the heart of the story, and that's what matters the most.

    I just want to warn you people that I shall be more than incoherent and less that correct in my use of English language due not having slept in over 25 hours. That's all.

    Also, I made an observation last night around four o clock: Unused CDs smell odd.

    Edit: At the moment I have been up for 32 hours. Ugh.

    to pop a beer.

    4...You don't have to wash a beer before
    it tastes good.

    Well, it's not like anyone cares, but I'm probably going to be taking a leave from the Boards for a week or two. I love SP, but the topics around here are just boring me a bit, and the forums I love just don't suit me anymore. Besides, I gotta start focusing on schoolwork and finals, and maybe I'll work on my Creativity Surge for a while. Well, in short, I say goodbye to you all temporarily. I'm sure I won't be missed. ;)

    Cheers,
    Creudzfeldt.
     
  15. ArchAngel Guest

    Baaah. Stick around. SP can't ruin your schoolwork. Especially if the toppics bore you. They are a bit singlefiled, I agree. But that is just whatnots. In a day or two they'll be over and new ones will emerge. Anyway Good luck with the creative surge ;)

    "Master Luke, sir, it's so good to see you fully functional again." -C-3PO

    "How are you feeling, kid? You don't look so bad to me. In fact, you look strong enough to pull the ears off a Gundark." - Han

    "Thanks to you." - Luke

    "That's two you owe me, junior." - Han

    (Han turns to Leia with a big, devilish grin.)

    "Well your Worship, looks like you managed to keep me around for a little while longer." - Han

    "I had nothing to do with it. General Rieekan thinks it's dangerous for any ships to leave the system until we've activated the energy shield." - Leia

    "That's a good story. I think you just can't bear to let a gorgeous guy like me out of your sight." - Han

    "I don't know where you get your delusions, laser brain." - Leia

    (Chewie is amused and laughs)

    "Laugh it up, fuzzball. But you didn't see us alone in the south passage...she expressed her true feelings for me." - Han

    "My...! Why, you stuck up,... half-witted... scruffy-looking ...nerf-herder!" - Leia

    "Who's scruffy-looking?" - Han (turns to Luke) "I must have hit pretty close to the mark to get her all riled up like that, huh, kid?"

    "Well, I guess you don't know everything about women yet." - Leia

    (Leia kisses Luke) Bleh! ;) :p

    There's a Padme commercial here in the same style as the latest ones, and we now see were Leia gets her wild streak.

    Today was an awesome day for SW speculation. A few guys who have read R.A. Salvatore's recent novelization of Attack of the Clones (based on the script), think they have cracked the theory of what it takes to dissapear and/or come back in spirit form/ talk in one's mind form for a Jedi. Although the question is not entirely answered in Episode II, we do get some new stuff to ponder and speculate on...

    Anyways, it's really exciting stuff and I'll share it after Clones comes out. One thing is for sure... Clones leaves you wondering about a good number of things... a smart move by Lucas because you would think that with just Episode III left, we would know how it's going to turn it. Well there's some interesting pieces added to the puzzle. There will be a lot of speculation up until Episode III, and there's nothing wrong with a good ol' SW debate ;) :grin:.

    Biting your dictionary?

    Some inner conflicts with people named Roget, or had you been using it as a pillow just prior?
