The release of the original Star Wars trilogy on DVD firmly plants my buttocks on the horns of a dilemma–Yes, I am a huge dork and I must … have … them … must … own … can’t resist, and at the same time the sheer awfulness of episodes one and two (and, with 99.99% certainty, episode three–Vader’s Menacing Dildo or whatever it’s going to be called–whenever it comes out) have utterly soured me on the whole franchise.
Fortunately, the good folks at Dork Tower are sharing the pain, and have distilled the essence of the moral quagmire posed by Lucas’s never-ending spoon feeding of his franchise in this utterly brilliant cartoon. It’s funny because it’s true.

All Nic wants for WWDC is sync that actually works
Another book roundup, including some stellar athletes and soldiers, what might be the most jaded, soul-weary protagonist ever, and some grimdark fantasy.
The Internet is getting creepy, and Nic is breaking out his tinfoil hat after newspaper paywalls push him over the edge.
Nic is tired of tech sites obsessing over Apple’s financials and business strategy. So very tired.
Nic reads a book about the processed food industry and is incensed.
Computers are complicated. This brings out the irrational in people.
Nic proposes the loan word Rechthaberei be incorporated into American English.
The Core Dump is back! Books were read during the hiatus. Includes The Coldest Winter, Oh, Myyy!, Tough Sh*t, The Revolution Was Televised, The Rook, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Gun Machine, Fortress Frontier, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, and The Memory of Light.
This site will return in February.
From a true patriot to a world-weary detective, a dead god, and a civilization about to sublime from the galaxy, this book roundup spans the gamut. Includes Where Men Win Glory, Wild, Inside the Box, The Black Box, Three Parts Dead, Red Country, and The Hydrogen Sonata.
