From We Interrupt This Broadcast by Joe Garner:
The Potsdam communique arrived in Japan on July 27.
Instructions: Grab the nearest book, open it to page 23, find the 5th sentence, and post its text along with these instructions, and point back to where you got the idea so that we can follow the threads.
As you can see from the image to the right, I have been playing around with Paint Shop Pro and doing some fun image editing. I don’t know why, but this seemed like an extraordinarily funny thing to do, and the results turned out pretty good. Better than the Darth Maul/Boba Fett image I did yesterday.
I finally saw Attack of the Clones last Friday (the 5th), and it was pretty good. Better than The Phantom Menace, at any rate. And I’ve been thinking of the odd, cult-like popularity that has arisen out of two Star Wars characters, Boba Fett and Darth Maul.
Yep, utterly geeky.
My best theory as to their popularity is that they are visually interesting, bad-ass characters who were not overused. (Although, with Jango Fett in AOTC, they may be trodding down the overused path with clan Fett.) You know, less is more.
So, I decided to merge the two characters into one, ultra-cool, ultra-bad-ass creation:
Here’s the image I whipped up to illustrate.
