Does anybody remember those "No Rules" shirts. There was some cartoon kid on them with white hair, which I always wondered why white hair? Maybe he wasn't even a kid, maybe he was just a really old dude. Like some old short 60 something that never grew up and dressed like the youth, hanging out at skate parks and dodging truancy police.
Anyway, I used to wear these all the time. These shirts, along with my JNCO's. All these clothes had cool cartoon graphics on em, guess it make sense I still dig really good cartoon illustration. There's something great about a graphic thats illustrated just right.
One day I was running late to computer class in middle school. The teacher took me to the back of the class to speak to me in private. He explained that lateness will not be acceptable and he noticed my "No Rules!" shirt. He reminded me that there are rules in school, no matter what my t-shirts might say. Bummer.
It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.
I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
