Just a short entry today. I'm off to Riverside Ciniplex to watch Revenge of the Sith in a few minutes time. Man I can't wait I can't wait I can't wait!
Yes, everytime Star Wars come around I turn into a geeky little nerd having an orgasm at the sight of Yoda.
Ok lah, its not that bad.
You know what's bad?
Visualise this. Back when I was at Curtin University, I walked past the Physics student common room one day only to catch the sight of fat pimply kids with thick glasses playing chess whilst they listened to the Star Wars Theme Music playing over the radio.
Mannnn I was so traumatised! Nothing against nerds of course. I fully admit I'm a nerd myself. But that scene was nerdiness to the n-th degree plus one integrated over the range of negative infinity to positive infinity. I'm not making this up, and yes, it really was THAT bad!
A while ago I wrote about how sick I am of businesses jumping on the Star Wars bandwagon and coming up with all these boring competitions and "limited-edition" stupid gimmicks? Well, since I'm in Star Wars mood and all, I've helped the following businesses come up with taglines they can use to torture us further.
Remember, you saw it first on kennysia.com!

Update: Just came back from the cinema. Without spoiling the movie for you, I can say that I felt very disturbed watching evil prevailing over good in this episode of Star Wars. Without a doubt this is the definitely best instalment of the series. You really have to watch the earlier episodes of Star Wars to fully appreciate it.
Some notable things that happened at the cinema:
- I didn't know I wasn't allowed to bring in outside drinks. An attendant stopped me and said "Ini tidak boleh masuk". But then I waved my right hand at him using my Jedi mind trick and replied "Boleh lah!" Surprisingly it worked.
- A group of three backpacking British youngsters sat to my right. One of them have very bad body odour emitting from his armpits. And he wore singlets. I sat beside him for the whole 2.5 hours of the movie. I almost activated my light sabre.
- Irritated by Yoda's way of talking, I am. Bad English grammar, he has. Tuition, he needs. Backwards all the time, his words are. If Yoda has an email address, com.starwars@yoda it would be.
- I got annoyed very quickly by the amount of scenes involving 'Jedi hanging on the ledge' after a battle. Try to count how many times that happened in the entire series. George Lucas must have gotten a blowjob or something each time he put that scene in his movies.
Other than that, definitely movie-of-the-year material.
