    So, considering your username, do you actually chew gum on a regular basis?

    Nah. It's just a pun that I quite liked that I once read in some random book. :p

    Thanks! :D To be honest I was surprised it wasn't already taken when I signed up. I know the book I read it in wasn't exactly a huge hit, but the fact that no one on a Star Wars fansite had read it before? Madness! :p

    It was called "Bill the Galactic Hero on the Planet of Bottled Brains" or something like that. It was a spoof of pulpy sci-fi stories like Flash Gordon and two of the characters were called "Ham Duo" and "Chewgumma". The book was a bit pants to be honest, but those two names stuck with me. :p

    It doesn't start until the end of July, so I have time to get over it!

    Well Carrie Fisher did say that the Big 3 might appear at Comic Con. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed! :D

    See I would have thought they were saving that reveal for Celebration. Perhaps they've got other big surprises lined up for the next month?

    Yeah, I thought the same thing too especially with Carrie, Mark, Kathleen and a bunch of others already confirmed for Celebration Europe. Who knows what Disney has up their sleeve but it sure will be exciting to find out.

    BTW - if you haven't seen World War Z, I say it's worth checking out!

    I hear that as an adaptation from the book... it's pretty bad, as it really only has Zombies in common with the book... but as a movie in and of itself... it's pretty good. (not spectaculart mind you, but still pretty good)

    It was worth the matinee price I paid anyway. ;)

    Friends of mine want me to see it, but I'd rather not.

    He traded this uniform and a 40 million dollar contract for a stripped uniform and a .20 cent an hour contract working at a prison laundry room.
    All for the the huge insult of his friend talking to some people he didn't like.
    I'd rather be connected to an electrical chair than this FOOL!

    I think I just ate my own weight in my home-made vegan beef-sichuan.
    From now on you can call me Danny the Hutt.
    Oh, and I guess I'll have to teach my cat (Wicket) to laugh like Salacious Crumb.

    That is all.

    My problem with World War Z isn't that it's a zombie movie but how they so flagrantly took a book that is a political satire and sucked out all the politics in the adaptation.
