    1. An uninformed person seeing that thing on that chair (with that name on it!) might rather feel depressed, thinking: "Poor Carrie, she REALLY hasn't aged well!"

    2. It was brought up when he let it slip a week ago or so. Now he's confirming it so it's being brought up again.

  7. Grim Fandango is one of my favorite adventure games of every. Glad to see adventure games making somewhat of a comeback with Telltale's stuff, though the latest entries haven't had enough exploration/examination mixed in.

  8. Lover Hamill, but we have to do something about his ongoing attire.

  10. Viral, how do you post links? And why can't one post from an Apple device?

    1. When you paste links in the comments they're not active but anyone can copy and paste them in their web browser.
      I've heard before that people have issues posting from Apple devices. For instance I can post from my iPad. As I said before the blogger platform has huge limitations. We're migrating our site to Wordpress on June 18th and all the issues will be fixed and there will be much more extras to the comments. Just a little more patience.

  11. So that is Gary? Slightly less cute than Salacious Crumb.

    As for Daisy's tweet, I really LOVE her wonderful grammatical construction: "Any personal photos of me that appear online have been taken without _whoever took said photo of me's consent_."

    I guess dull, unimaginative grammatical conventionalists would say something like "without the consent of whoever took said photo of me", but no, not Daisy Ridley. She goes her own way in grammar.

    1. or maybe she was typing fast and didn't double check her spelling...

    2. What are you talking about?
      "any personal photos of me that appear online have been taken without whoever took said photo of me's consent"
      That is a perfectly fine and grammatically correct sentence..

    3. Brace yourselves
      The grammer nazis are coming...

    4. Granted, Ms. Ridley's special constructions are not much to talk about, compared to what we have to suffer from the mouth of Mr. Yoda and Mr. Binks.

  12. Viral Hide - earlier you had a picture of a destroyed Jedi council chamber and someone with a red lightsaber standing in the entry. What was that from?

    1. It was just a fan art fond on the web.

  13. Viral Hide - I found this image on the TFN forums, and I couldn't match it up with either of the related Twitter feeds, implying to me that it's been taken down for some reason. So I re-uploaded the image and re-tweeted it to Mark Hamill to see if he'd react to it somehow, but when I went back to check on it later, my tweet had vanished as well! I know it's probably just a promo shot of Mark when he was at the Disney weekend, but it just seems odd that it was deleted. Take a look at this: http://s11.postimg.org/rdnt5k16b/Mark_Hamill_with_Asajj_Ventress.jpg . ^_^

    1. The deletion is odd, but this looks like a picture taken while he was at SWW.

    2. Skywalker/Ventress romance. There's something to make us EU fans freak.

      Delete
    3. that would be hilarious considering she would be like 70 or so

      Delete
    4. ooops, posted it wrong: ""well, if this is a real picture from the ep.7 production, then we know now that lupita nyongo is not playing ventress as rumoured. this movie is going to be totally impossible to keep secret with all cameras built on to cellphones & other hightech small devices...""

      Delete
    5. James Arnold Taylor tweeted that img. He is the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi
      Plo Koon and Rako Hardeen in TCW...so, probably, he was a guest of SWW like Hamil and Ventress is a cosplay fan...
