I got invited to this blog by Shaak Ti a while ago... weeks in fact... maybe a month... Anyway, I got the e-mail, decided I'd consider it, and then forgot all about it. I do that often. Now, if I can remember who I am, I ought to introduce myself.
My real name is Chris, 16, from New Zealand. Officially, I work for Waitemata District Health Board filing medical specimens. Unofficially, I work for Count Dooku and General Grievous writing scripts for short films and providing much needed cynicism. My favorite subjects at school are Latin and Chemistry; I do not like Chinese food; my star sign is Sagittarius and my motto is "sarcasm is the spice of life". Right, enough about me, now on to... who's my character again? Ah, yes, Jar Jar.
Why did I start a blog like this?
I ask myself that question every day. I wanted to exercise my creative writing skills, and have a bit of fun in the process if at all possible. I had read Yoda's and Obi-Wan Kenobi's blogs, and liked them. Ergo, I now spend two or three hours a week pretending to be a deranged frog-man with a thankless administration job. Not much different from reality, come to that.
Why did I choose Jar Jar?
Jar Jar is my favorite character in Star Wars. Let that sink in. You may have never met anyone else who would willingly admit that. I don't like that everyone hates him so much. How much is he hated? I googled "Jar Jar Binks" once. Three of the top ten pages were informational. One was a fan listing. Five were sites with names like "Jar Jar Binks must die". One was from the Landover Baptist Church newsletter, claiming that Jar Jar was satanic (apparently, "his forked tongue, his lapping, his malignant features, are all too noticeable to the Christ-centered man") and corrupted small children. I was also furious that George Lucas gave him one frikkin' line in Revenge of the Sith.
In short, I wanted to get Jar Jar some good press for once.
If I post often, where do I get my ideas?
Ah... ideas... let's just move along, shall we? I'll have some by tomorrow afternoon, I promise...
Where do I find pictures to post?
Well... I don't. Jar Jar's blog is actually rather featureless with regards to pictures.
So - hello, here I am, how are you? Yes, I want to know.
