Curiouser and curiouser...

I've since discovered that people actually look at this site. Wow. Now there's going to be expectations, and I'm just not sure if I can handle that at this state in my blog... we shall see.

Anyway, gonna find a way to post pictures of the birds sometime, so that I might inflict them on unwary passersby, and of me with my newest dork toy. *grins evilly*

Episode III

Okay, so I'm actually getting excited for ROTS, having seen all of the preview figures and the teaser trailer (and some not-so-preview stuff) at some of the websites out there. What I've read about the plot (minimal) seems like it'll be pretty good, what I've seen with regards to characters and ships looks awesome (the Arc Fighter may be my favorite prequel vehicle once it comes out), and I've not seen ANYTHING that looks like it's gonna be lame.

However, all of the preview stuff for AOTC looked really good too, and there weren't any shots of that ridiculous factory scene, or the 3PO head-swap, or the angst-ridden romance scenes, or...
I hope this one doesn't suck. I really do.

Do you hear me, Lucas?

Blogging Gone Bad

Okay, so this ain't right. Yes, it's a blog on the Lincoln Fry, as seen in the Super Bowl ads.

That's right. It's a blog. "Oh, I've never blogged before, but we found this fry. We're putting it up for auction! Here's some 'bad' phone photos. By the way, we're not going to mention the $2 million dollar commercial that's airing in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS during the Super Bowl because, tee-hee, this is a real blog and we're real people." Yeah, right.

Oh geez, how did I miss this part?
Liz and I are amazed at the traffic this blog has gotten. But I'm getting overwhelmed by the volume of comments coming in. I'm afraid I just don't have the time to police this blog all day and night. As it is, my email inbox is constantly filling up. So I had to close this blog to any additional comments.

How stupid do they think we are? Really?

Of course, the auction is probably worse. Presently at $101,300.00 for the prop fry.

This auction is for one “Lincoln Fry” prop. Prop was created for DDB Chicago’s production of McDonald’s “Lincoln Fry” television and internet advertisements. This Lincoln Fry prop is crafted from polyurethane and stands approximately 4 inches tall. It forms a base at one end and a partial bust of President Abraham Lincoln at the other. “Lincoln Fry” is not edible.
