‘I’m Having The Time Of My Life Out Here’:

SEATTLE – Are you ready for Star Wars: Episode Three? Don’t get excited just yet, the new movie doesn’t open until May.

But for one Seattle fan, it’s never too early, or too cold, to start the wait.

Jeff Twieden doesn’t care that it’s freezing outside. He’s camping out in front of the Cinerama Theater in downtown Seattle, waiting for Episode Three to open. It’s only 22 weeks away.

I saw nothing in Star Wars episodes I & II to make me even want to pay to see episode III in the theater, much less wait in front of a theater for 22 weeks.

G4 drops TechTV Name

Looks like the ass clowns running G4TechTV G4tv have dropped all pretense of being a technology channel:

Charles Hirschhorn, Founder and CEO of the network, announced the channel’s official name as G4 – video game television – earlier today at the Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour. The name change and new network look and feel will take effect on February 15, 2005.

Looks like their scam to get on satellite providers and non-Comcast cable systems worked:

  1. Merge with established cable channel with original content.
  2. Destroy all content from established cable channel.
  3. Leave nothing but 24 hours of mindless crap.
  4. Profit?

Is there anyone out there actually watching G4 (or whatever the hell they’re calling themselves)?

  6. I’d like a true beauty so I don’t have to spend so much time photoshopping your ugly face out of our photos.

  7. It’s like in X-Men number 135, where Cyclops and Jean Grey (as The Phoenix)…

  8. Let’s face it. You love Intel, and I’m an AMD man. It’s not going to work out.
