    Depends. Is the emperor holding court?

    Fact: that film is what turned me away from Pelly and his Remnant I'll, and towards the Imperial court.

    "The Last Emperor"

    Pu Yi was berating some kid for wearing yellow, saying that it's the imperial color. Also he was kicking around his eunuchs.


    I was inspired. Why be a generalissimo when you could kick around eunuchs?

    Life is more fun when you mock the Remnant. I'm doing a Zahn reread during my flights and Pelly is far more pathetic than I remembered.
    I can't youtube here, what is that?

    Away means "don't bother me with work." It doesn't mean I'm not going to check in from time to time to see what's going on :p

    And no, I've only seen it in Spanish so I'm not familiar with quotes and the like.

    So I don't think they'd be offended by wearing yellow. Turns out they sell little emperor hats at all the gift shops. It's actually a little weird.

    I hope the old EU will live on in obscure fan-made oddities like these that will completely confound the newer [illiterate] generations.

    So, apparently General Veers went on to become Grand Maester Pyclle from Game of Thrones:



    .........reminds you just how long ago those movies were.

    You mean like how the old Marvel stuff worked until they finally decided to incorporate it?

    I actually have music playing on Pandora right now and I laughed because I saw that image and it's a song with a pretty good beat. The head nodding is right in time with the drumbeat. [face_laugh]
