I was 10 years old when I saw this film and this part still gives me goosebumps. Sometimes, the prequel trilogy is actually good.
I just browsed the nerd tag on Tumblr for about two minutes and I got severely annoyed. Apparently, most people think they can slap on a pair of non-perscription, fake ray bans and that automatically makes them a “nerd”.
I get that the whole “nerdiness” thing is sorta in right now, but as an actual nerd who had to go through a fair amount of ridicule during my elementary/middle school years because of my nerdiness, all these newfound “nerds” piss me off. A lot of these idiots would have been the people making fun of me for wearing an Ash Ketchum hat out in public. Most of these punks can’t tell you why Thunderbolt would be an absolutely useless attack against a Rhydon. They probably couldn’t even tell you something as simple as when The Lord of the Rings takes place (it’s near the end of the Third Age of Middle Earth, by the way), or how many incarnations of The Doctor there have been. Would they know the difference between a hinkypunk and a tauntaun? Probably not. Could they tell you anything about The Joker that was not in Nolan’s Batman: The Dark Knight? Again, nope.
In a way, it’s cool that nerds are kinda “in” now, but it’s unfortunate that douche bags and posers are capitalizing on our turf. If you wanna join the ranks of nerd-dom, then great! I love welcoming people into the marvelous worlds that The Doctor can show people, or talking to them about their first experience with the Hogwarts express.
But you can’t just call yourself a nerd if you put on a pair of glasses. That’s stupid. If I called myself a jock whenever I picked up a football, people would realize as soon as I threw it that I was certainly a faker.
Phew. Rant over.
I can honesty say that the only time I get bummed about being single nowadays is when my old friends with wives, husbands, girlfriends or boyfriends, make plans to hang out with each other and don’t invite me because I don’t have a significant other.
Life is unfortunate sometimes.
However, sometimes you find a picture of guy with a beard like this and it makes everything okay:
Just finished Avatar: The Last Airbender, so now I’m depressed. I hate endings. I want adventures to continue forever.
Zuko probably ended up being my favorite character. And Toph. And Aang. And Uncle Iroh. And Sokka. And Appa. And Katara.
I realized that the show is kind of cross between Harry Potter (group of friends fighting to stop a seemingly invincible enemy), Dragonball Z (crazy overpowered people), and Star Wars (the various masters teaching Aang about bending was similar to a lot of Jedi stuff). I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to watch it- it’s really a fantastic show. Best thing I’ve seen since Doctor Who!
Also, can we go back in time and stop the horrible Last Airbender movie made by M. Night Shyamalan from happening and have Joss Whedon make one that might actually do the show justice?
Airbender / Star Wars Crossover
The impossible choice.
a Pokémon trainer who is a rockstar at night and works at Sacred Heart and learns the ways of the force and is Wolverine and has the Intersect and is the king of Gondor and trains dragons and is a wizard. And I want to write books.
Is that too much to ask?
