The People vs. George Lucas is playing this week in Los Angeles. Sounds like fun. I find geekdom in its natural state intriguing, and hell hath no fury like geekdom scorned. It may seem to outsiders that the anti-Lucas mania is overdone, but I can understand--he took something great and ruined it. (He even reached back and compromised the originals.) But how much can you hate him when he's the guy who created the great stuff in the first place?
Here's an interesting piece from a Star Wars fan. This line, though, I found odd: "The sci-fi universe that was at least partially responsible for my not kissing a girl until college was gone, and I accepted it." Really? Did Star Wars prevent you from kissing a girl, or was it a convenient way of avoiding it?
