Your Turn

This is a call out. This is a call to all I-III lovers out there. And this call is:

HELP!

This week’s article was originally going to be my reaction to George Lucas’ revelation that Disney basically threw out his original treatments for VII-IX and how Sithy that made me feel, but I’m done. I don’t WANT to automatically hate the new films based on what got them made when they’ll probably be at least decent films if not better given the people working on them, and I’m sick of using this column to talk myself down every time news I’m avoiding hits my ears.

This column is about I-III, and about how they’re as much Star Wars as IV-VI. About how they’re good movies in their own right in spite of mainstream media and geekdom’s constant mud-slinging.

But I feel like I’ve made all the arguments a million times over. Every time I think of something new to say, it sounds too similar to things I’ve already spoken about. I feel like I’m just repeating myself over and over again. “Like I said before” has become a common theme.

So that’s why I need your help, dear readers. I know there are things I miss. Things I haven’t considered. Things you’ve been dying to have someone, ANYONE address but somehow nobody ever has.

So please, if you’re out there, if my readership isn’t just a figment of my imagination, contact me. Let me know who you are, and what you want me to address. My e-mail is nilbogsstorybookland@gmail.com, or you could leave a comment on my blog.

This column has been a wonderful opportunity for me, for anyone to have a voice to combat the haterbase. I don’t want to have to step down because I ran out of things to say. Help me continue to spread the positivity.
