From a long time ago, all the way to the 24th century- spread out to galaxies far, far away and even planets closer to home. From the cities of Earth, like New York City and West City, to the great cities of Coruscant and Neptonian. Here, the men, women, mutants, aliens, elves, hobbits and those other odd creatures of the bloggersphere boldly go where no blogger has gone before. For one may not always be a hero, but one can always blog...

The greatest hero this planet has known.


RIP Don Knotts.

What If You're Not Human?

So, I'm neither heroe nor human, according to that title. Where does that place me? The Category of Lost Souls?

Anyways, I'm Arwen, and Legolas better run away.

When Puppets attack

Aren't you tired of standing in line, and an uppity puppet tries to use ki attacks on you? Well this guy's not going to take it any more. Embarresment over fighting with an inanimate object be darned.



Starbucker: I guess I should expose myself here

errr... I mean - "introduce" myself here.

My name?
There are some who call me....Drew?
34/M/USA
manufacturing/engineering director/product manager/know-it-all

Why're you doing this?
fun...and escape. Big Sci-fi fan. Just following Yoda's, Han's and ol' Ben's footsteps. So glad to see so many hop on board.

Why Fluke Starbucker? He's not even a real character, for crying out loud.
Actually he is, though not from Star Wars. He's a spoof....from possibly the first indy parody of SW called "Hardware Wars" that came out in 1977. I think I read somewhere that Lucas considered it his fav parody of Ep4. If you're into bad , bad low budget, low-tech movies that are built on stupidity, making fun of an original, and are just plain cheesy ( I'm looking at you, Leia), you should make an attempt to locate a copy and check it out. I assure you, you will want a refund of whatever money you paid to rent it, and you be sorely disappointed, but that's most of the beauty of it.

Let's take a quick look at one memorable moment from Hardware Wars:

Fluke Starbucker: Jeepers! What is it, Augie Ben Doggie? Did you feel a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced?
Auggie Ben Doggie: No, just a little headache.


Anyway, with Fluke, I can whine like Luke did in the movies and complain about people confusing me for Luke, and often, I'll try to very closely mimic the Luke from the screen. For example - the message I sent to Obi about my missing Lightsabre way back in my blog was written as a parallel with Leia's message to Obi from EP4 in mind. Fluke entering Jabba's lair was written to resemble Luke's entrance in Ep6.... I've done a few other parallels, but can't remember where now...

...but here's what I really like - I'm not trapped into being Luke, or anyone else for that matter. I am free to be whatever, so I can guiltlessly make fun of anything - SW, or Trek, or any other galaxy.

Generally, Fluke is me - Drew - personified in a blog character - he's naive, tenderhearted, competitive, and good-natured. He will always push for good to triumph, and likes to look at the bright side of any and all situations. He roots for everybody to go above and beyond themselves to overcome whatever obstacle they're up against.

You like to post 5 days a week, where do you get ideas?
Normally it's off the cuff as they hit me, or I may play on something from any of the Star Wars - or your - blogs - like with Aayla's rescue way early on. But on that one, I attempted to think ahead some, and it hurt my brain, and didn't flow as well as I would've liked.

Oh, and about the M-F... *looks out on production floor to see if anyone's paying attention, then whispers*: Yes, I strictly blog at work. shhhhh! Don't tell anybody. I'm very busy aside from the blog, and sometimes come in early or stay late to do it. Some weeks I've had to resort to putting up nonsense images - or cutting my posting back to only 2 or 3 times a week.

Pics?:
GIS and YIS produce slightly different results on searches. I also Photoshop and Paint and recently a little Gimp, and have a fairly large collection of old and new manipulated images that I like to write around.

Tips and tricks I know from blogging?
Fluke is my first blog. I'm still learning from you guys.

Comments?
They're good. I like them: reading them and leaving them.

I never would've imagined this would be this much fun.

Hi Everybody!

Hey we got some new blood, er members, around here. Cool.

I wanted to say hello to everyone and welcome and maybe show off my awesome image googling skills by finding an obscure cartoon doctor.

Smoking my pipe

Pip,
You got any extra pipeweed?
I'm runnin' a bit low.
Gotta go buy some more, but can't 'til market day.
I'll let you have some nice vegetables from my garden as a rade if ya want.

I think I'm goin' go have myself a nice tall bottle of brandy.
Anyone care to join me?

Sunday, February 19, 2006

see what happens when you clone X men




you get a Mini Me Wolverine






And I dont know what Batman had top eat but I think it isnt any good anymore











Illegal

Be careful, Pippin.

Some of that Pipeweed may be illegal in certain places. I know the Ferengi sell it secretly for astronomical profits.

Rumour has it that The Gaffer in The Shire is a contact with The Ferengi.

Hello

I aways been told that
I am a fool
A fool of a took that is.

When I all really
wanted was to
have a little fun.

And now it seems that
I have become
a hero of Middle Earth.

But what is a hero?
When all you really
ever been called is a fool.

Never a hero
not even by my closest friends.
(but not that we ever thought of ourselves as heroic! Well, I didn't anyway.)

Well, now it's time that I smoke my pipe
and grin and bare this new,
dare I say title hero as I did the fool.

You Voted!

Looks like this is both an Out Of Character blog as well as a Role Playing blog.

Personally, when this blog was created I thought it was going to be RP and we'd all have some story going. But with both we can do that and if anyone has something to say they can just post it.

Hello

Hello, I am Legolas and I am finally a united hero. Sorry I have not posted yet, but I had to hunt down a bunch of Uruk-hai who took my friends. Then they ran in this big forest and I kept following them and then I found them a few days later at Isengaurd. This sounds somewhat familiar....almost as if it was in some movie or something....Sam, if your looking for a gardening job, I have one for you.

I am a new member of Hero's United!!! Yay for me!!! Im a Jedi Master named Agen Kolar and I serve in the Jedi Temple. I will post more soon.

One cannot always be a hero, but one can always be a human

"One cannot always be a hero, but one can always be a human"
Sam doesn't like this logo much.
It is deeply offending.
I am definitely not a human!
I am a hobbit!
I am a garden-tending hobbit!
Speaking of which, currently I am looking for more employers.
I have Mr. Frodo's garden well covered, mine as well, but I would like more work.
I just love gardening so.
I also love brandy!
In fact, tonight I am goin' to the bar.
Anyone, care to join in?

now more pic fun

I've seen some funny pics on star wars unplugged with some of the star wars cos players. Here's a reason why what we see on comics etc. probably wouldn't work well in real life. enjoy.

Repairs


Hey, I was just fixing up the blog a little. I hope no one minds, but I changed the title so it matched the site address and I added that little description under it. If anyone doesn't like it just tell me and I'll change it back, I just thought it would look nicer this way. And while I'm sprucing it up, does anyone have ideas for links? If you want us to link to something just leave it in a comment and I’ll see what I can do (mind you, they must be family friendly) , cause the 'Google news' and 'edit me’s' are looking kind of sad.

Oh, and I sent invitations to a whole bunch of people that had left comments but had never received an invite and a couple more to other heroes. We are growing! Yay!

Picture fun

dont flush

A Regular Saver

It seems like I'm saving the universe every week; it certainly feels like it.

That little brat Wesley seems to do a lot of it, but sometimes I think that the damage is caused by him in the first place.

I've got to remember to get Beverly a Valentine's Card this year. She doesn't take too kindly to having it come on a Pad.
