Shallow......

..... every day that you turn on the television, what do you see?..... crime, corruption, devilishness, sin, evil, lust...... and after a while, you get the feeling that you are incapable of escaping the Trundling Machine of Evil..... where is God when you need the fellow?.......

... it seems to be everywhere... in the streets, in the towns, covering the countryside... and what do you do?...... you either arm yourself and prepare for the worst, or you retreat into your inner sanctum and pray that it will all just go away....... perhaps some superhero will arrive, Mr. Smith will be dug up by a musty old Frank Capra, or The Politicians and Criminals will suddenly grow a conscience and Make Things Right....... but, whatever happens, you know that you will always have your own little slice of normality behind your own closed doors.......... your haven........

.... but just then?..... just when you feel safe in your soft, warm, comfy inner sanctum, you stroll through the living room to find scenes such as this, and your heart just drops.......

.... indeed, folks, after the new floor install a few days ago, I caught Bobafett robbing E. A. Poe at plasma-rifle point in the sanctity of my own living room.......

...... what IS this world coming to, folks?........

.... I love Boba, of course, and his fanatic loyalty to The Empire, but damn.... hell, I've been there........ but one cannot help - in these economic climes - to wonder just how far The Empire will go to silence such voices as Poe and others..... our world does need free-thinkers, after all....... without poets, writers, and artists, would we not be dead?....... figuratively, if not literally.......

.... it's hard to believe that this scene actually took place in MY house, of all places....... and yet, it is in store for all of us if we aren't very, very careful......... VERY careful........

Bullshit So Far

Damn. Now I'm really worried.

The horsemen have started their ride, and you're correct...be VERY careful and aware. My dinosaurs are stirring before my history books.

When E.A Poe has a plasma-rifle pointed at him, the the Ravens are already flying.

"Nevermore" can be interpreted in many ways.

Great post...unless I missed the point.

Fuck Jar Jar Binks. Boba Fett oughta have his own movie. Poe could be his sidekick, writing poetry and macabre short stories to entertain Mr. Fett as he tracks down the enemies of the Empire...

Quoth the Sarlacc: "Nevermore!"

Boba Fett wasn't loyal to the Empire - he was a mercenary!

Which makes me like him even more - there's an intergalactic war going on and Boba's just in it for the money. Empire, Hutts, whoever - he who pays the piper calls the tune.

Right you are, Mark. Perhaps I should have said, "... as he tracks down whoever the fuck he's being paid to find..." Less poetic, but more accurate.

I have the same problem at the Lair....but mostly it's Sergeant Major Avery J. Johnson, Master Chief, and assorted G.I. Joes setting ambushes against all sorts of disreputable personages.

All through the house. No place is safe anymore......

*'Course, I do have a highly imaginative 12 year old Son.....*

Boba Fett wouldn't stand a chance at my place. heh.

I better go make sure my GI Joe collection isn't attempting home invasions for extra cash...

Just last week, I found my Space Lego's mounting an offensive toward my wife's naked barbies----I thought this was only happening in my house, but I see this is a far greater threat than I had realized.
