Q: What do you get when you combine Spielberg's lisp, Lucas' chins, and Carrie Fisher's mammary glands?

A: Jabba the Nut!

Thanks to my friend, former student, and eternal teacher Ward Porrill for slapping this on my Facebook wall. You won't catch me attending the 3D conversion of Episode One. Not even the stereopticians at Prime Focus can add depth to this long-faced nuisance. May the remorse be with you!

Eddie Schwartz had a love child and his name is Francis!

Thanks for sharing, I think...

You are welcome, kiddo! I will meet you at the Ho-Kow Cafe, where I don't have to pay. I think the maître d' likes me. I could eat eggrolls forever.

That was one of the finest on-screen breakdowns in film history. Easily better than Sheen's in Apocalypse Now. I hope you all caught the fact that when he is sobbing at the end, he is sobbing The Star Wars theme. It's a freaking master class - the veering from knowing self-mockery to apparent genuine rage is breathtaking.

The phallic placement of the Toys R Us light-saber, his purposeful positioning as a shirtless Jabba clone auditioning for the part of a motion-capture stand-in, the voice that so does not fit the body, the George C. Scott finale...Did you ever think you'd catch me posting a "Star Wars" fanboy clip on this blog? I was felled by this clip.

Since we're off topic...

For years, this was my go-to crybaby breakdown:

I like the way you think, Dolores. Always have. So glad they receive YouTube where you're at, sweetie.

Man, it's getting dark in here!

I did some great work back in the day. Wonderful to see Andy the Clown again!
