In this week’s ball-sabering show, the final one before the epic, epic, EPIC 100th episode, Magnus winds up the downtime with a partially fond, partially hostile, partially ambivalent look back at Star Wars- Episode I- The Phantom Menace.
Much has been said about this, the most maligned Star Wars film of all time.
But none of it has been said by His Excellency Magnus and so you haven’t heard EVERYTHING yet. Actually, there’s a very good argument that you haven’t heard ANYTHING yet.
Is it the greatest film ever made? A cancer upon the Star Wars saga? The loudest, harshest, most ball-kicking wake up call the fan community ever got? A middle finger from a complacent, out of touch billionaire toy huckster playing filmmaker?
Or is it one man’s deadlevel best effort to deliver an entertaining film?
Giving that away would nullify any requirement to listen to the episode, would it not?
Still, for you weak-minded fools who never fail to be tricked by tricky click-bait trickery, tactics “Magnus said *WHAT* about Ben Burtt?!”
Usually now is the time when feedback would become an issue. But, in yet another showcase of unprecedented podcasting brilliance married with a neverending, nigh-unmatched awareness of the lowly, simple folk, His Excellency actively solicited feedFORWARD from the podcasting vassals and loyal subjects who are members of the Magnus empire on Facebook.
Be it audio recording or simple text email, each endeavors in the second segment to deliver his or her views concerning this picked on nugget of Star Wars lore in a way that attempts to pay tribute to the magnificence which Magnus delivered in the first segment.
Tickets will be torn, corn will be popped, soda will be slurped, Sith will be bisected, pods will be raced, blood will be shed, tears will be wiped away, and Jar Jar will probably fart or something as Magnus finally brings the long, painful co-existence The Fans and Episode I have had to endure lo these past many years.
Even so, the rest of you commoners and simpletons are always welcome to pay your pathetic attempt at tribute to your leader. DiManzocorp interns are ready, willing, able and eager to accept bribes to present your meager missives to your wise leader. The email address to use is firstname.lastname@example.org, whereupon your leader might consider thinking about the possibility of potentially discussing whatever you have in mind some day. And that’s a promise!
In an another act of truly sublime charity, the leader permits the lowly rabble such as you to kiss his ring regarding this or any other episode. Thus, notes of homage may be sent to email@example.com for DiManzocorp interns to review.
