America vs. The World

The big trouble with dumb bastards is that they are too dumb to believe there is such a thing as being smart. — Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Plot holes? What plot holes?

All those with even a vague interest in Star Wars should read Keith Martin's brilliant update of the first Star Wars movie (aka A New Hope). It incorporates what we learned in the prequels and uses Geroge Lucas' gaping plot holes as an opportunity to tie things together; let's just say R2-D2 is more than he appears. This may be the coolest Star Wars piece I've ever read.

I got the Star Wars story courtesy of my favorite blog of the moment, Kung Fu Monkey. It's written by a screenwriter on Catwoman and the new Transformers movie, no less. His mini-screenplay responding to one of Bush's speeches absolutely cracked me up. (Though not as much as the baby video below.)
