  1. you are invited to follow my blog

  2. @Steve: Thank you for the invite, and I have subscribed! :D

  3. Cool blog! I posted this test on my blog. :D I got a 74.

  4. This made me laugh. I got a 14. xD

    I used to be crazy about Star Wars. Not quite so much anymore - I still like it a lot, but I'm not a fanatic. ;) ...and now I'm extremely curious... what's "THX-1138"? I mean... THX refers to the movie production thingie, I'm assuming... and 1138 is, of course, the number of Leia's cell block... but... I've never heard of that combination. Does it unlock something on the DVDs? O_O

    Haha. I can't hear Liam Neeson's voice without thinking of Qui-Gon Jinn. Sadly. It's just weird watching Les Miserables and thinking the whole time, "This is not Jean Valjean... this is Qui-Gon... this is wrong..." *headdesk* =P

    1. Lucas's first movie (in 1971) was called THX 1138 and starred Robert Duvall. It was based off of a movie he made as a student in '67 called Electronic Labyrinth: THX 1138 4EB.
      1138 has thus become sort of an in-joke for producers.

    2. Bahah, I see. I shall have to pay closer attention. ;)

  5. 65....I might have gotten higher, but people rarely ask me the same questions five times...mainly because I make my opinions clear =P


Please keep it clean. And "if you can't say somethin' nice, don't say nothin' at all" (Thumper from "Bambi"). Other than that, all comments, suggestions, requests, questions, concerns, and compliments are more than welcome!
