patgund: (Hello Abomination)
Ah, spam messages....

"Good day my dear friend
I believe that new beginning will fill the empty place in my soul with the fresh air and scent of trees in bloom."


Have you tried Pine Sol???

"We will become the one when my honey comes to me…"

If that's all it takes, I'm sure there's a spare bottle of SueBee around here somewhere.

"Without my beloved man I'm nothing, he will become a whole world for me. "

You might want to define which world. You don't want to get some winner of the baked bean and chili cookoff, and discover you're with a gas giant.

"I will love the way he wraps his arms around me and holds me really tight,"

You mean like a straightjacket??

"I will enjoy a feeling when his lips will barely touch mine for a kiss, the love and emotions that go through me at that moment will be unexplainable."

I'm sure there's a few used Harlequin romance novels you can crib off of to explain it.

"I will love him with everything so deep inside."

Two words come to mind. "Vienna Sausage"

If this guy is serious, well, I think I'm embarassed to be a Star Wars fan.....

‘Da Vinci Code’ steals from ‘Star Wars’

"Upon seeing “The Da Vinci Code” this weekend, I can finally empathize with all the protesters I saw in front of the theater. My objection to the movie isn’t rooted in religious beliefs or even moral disagreements, but rather the disrespectful mockery of the world’s oldest and most famous story. “Star Wars” is both a literary and cinematic treasure, and Dan Brown’s recent atrocity is nothing more than blatant plagiarism of Lucas’ timeless creation.

The likeness goes far past incidental similarities and can be more aptly described as a rip-off. For starters, look at the characters. “The Da Vinci Code” features a faceless antagonist referred to as “teacher,” much like the part of the emperor in “Star Wars.” This “teacher” controls the actions of the Bishop Aringarosa (Darth Vader) as well as Silas (Darth Maul); both of which are sith-like pawns in his ultimate plan to find the Holy Grail.

The Knights Templar are unmistakably the knighted force of the Jedi, fighting alongside the Priory of Sion, or rebellion as the case may be. While the movie omitted the return of Sophie’s brother, the book features it as the two being raised separately after their parent’s death to ensure their safety. It’s almost too easy for me to draw this painfully obvious line from that to the Luke and Leia situation. Hanks’ character, Langdon, was only missing the Wookie Chewbacca by his side.

I only wish the comparisons ended there, but they spread far past similar characters. The church’s order to terminate the Knights Templar is the emperor’s “order 66” for the clone armies to eliminate all Jedi. A few survived to protect, raise and teach the last scion, just as Obi-Won and Master Yoda did. Not to mention my favorite scene where Langdon rescues Sophie from the Death Star. Either way, I can hardly wait for the sequels. I’m sure “Da Vinci Strikes Back,” and “Return of the Code” are going to be huge hits.

Any movie worth seeing must in some way take from “Star Wars,” and fiction is fiction no matter what the subject matter.

May The Force be with you.
