Bit of Trivia.

It is attributed to England’s King George III, who supposedly wrote in his diary, “Nothing of importance happened today” on July 4. But if it sounds like a historical irony too good to be true, that’s because it is.

NPR discovered five years ago that George never even kept a diary and the myth stemmed from an actual diary entry of King Louis XVI of France from 1789.

Star Wars Shattered Empire

This bit sounds EXACTLY like West End Games from 1987 and everything after that, up to Wookiepedia. So maybe EU is not that off base.

Emperor Palpatine’s twenty-year reign of terror new found prosperity and New Order came to an abrupt and fiery end in the skies above the forest moon of Endor. A decisive victory for the Rebel Alliance, to be sure, but even with the loss of its leadership, the Empire’s Moffs and regional governors retained their hold on important systems from the Core to the Outer Rim, thanks to the might of the Imperial Starfleet. Now, with a power vacuum atop the Empire, those Moffs will jockey for position and control, and the heroes of the Rebel Alliance will soon discover that a wounded and fractious Empire may be more dangerous than any threat they faced before!

I just saw a screening. I must say its good to see Arnold Schwarzenegger on the big screen again. I was really hoping for a win for him.

It is in a way, at least in part. A lot of the cinematic cues for those who watched the original Terminator, and Terminator 2. I can't say I remember the others in the series too well.

There are some plot holes, and the acting is about what you would expect from an action movie, but the movie is still a nostalgia filled romp ride with some good hard action scenes.

My best advise? Do Not watch the trailer, at all. It gives away some good plot points, not sure why they did that. Marketing must think the movie going public needed more push to see the movie and in the process gave too much away.

It's still a fun enough quick ride for us getting long in the tooth, a 7.5 out of 10 for some action scenes and funny moments, almost all featuring Arnold.

Everyone seems to know that not only had he met Tolkien but was given the great author's approval to play Gandalf "if the version was ever made."

Some more amazing facts about Sir Christopher Lee.

1. Was Knighted and a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, and the Venrable Order of St. John.

2. Help fight (and defeat!) the Soviet Union being on the side of the Finns.

3. Help fight Nazi Germany on FOUR theaters of the European and African war.

4. Actually met with Rasputin's conspiratorial killers and was present at the final execution in France that would use the guillotine.

5. He is a cousin to Ian Flemming, who was encouraged by Lee to publish James Bond. Later Flemming would want Lee to portray 007, but he would become the James Bond Villain Saramanga instead.

6. Is related to by blood to the family branch that would come to the Americas, including Robert E. Lee.

7. These and all of his interesting relations pale in comparison to another one. Christopher Lee is a descendant of Charlemagne himself.

Sir Christopher Lee also entered the Star Wars saga Long before his portrayal of Count Dooku.

While the art for the character never seemed to realize this properly, Christopher Lee was the inspiration for Grand Moff Ardus Kaine in 1994, as the Grand Moff who would take over Grand Moff Tarkin, who was portrayed by his life long friend, Peter Cushing.

Erik was in New York and shared pics of the conclusion to your campaign where he played Ostog the Unslain, congratulations on completing the campaign.

With Mad Max proving to be a hit are you itching to run a post apocalyptic road warrior game?

Did you ever play the original Car Wars game?

George Miller directed the entire Mad Max action franchise, noted for its profound violence. Ironically, did you know he is also the director of three family friendly movies: the second of the Babe movies, Babe: Pig in the City (1998), and both Happy Feet movies, Happy Feet (2006) and Happy Feet Two (2011)?

Did you know the jacket worn by Tom Hardy is the exact same one worn by Mel Gibson in the original trilogy, although heavily worn?

Some fun facts for you about Mad Max Fury Road

Spoiler:

The movie was shot in sequence.

The flame-shooting guitarist is Australian artist/musician Sean Hape, better known as the artist Iota. In an interview on Vice, he said the guitar weighed 132 pounds, and shot real gas-powered flames, which he controlled using the whammy bar.

The portion of the blood-bag information tattoo being painfully needled into Max's back at The Citadel that was completed before he escapes reads: Day 12045, ht 10 hands, 180 lbs, No Name, No Lumps, No Bumps, Full Life Clear, Two good eyes, No Busted limbs, Piles OK, Genitals Intact, Multiple Scars, Heals Fast, O-NEGATIVE, HIGH-OCTANE, UNIVERSAL DONOR, Lone Road Warrior Rundown on The Powder Lakes V8, No Guzzoline, No Supplies, ISOLATE PSYCHOTIC, Keep Muzzled...

Director George Miller has written a background story for The Doof Warrior, the heavy metal musician, playing the flame-shooting electric guitar on The Doof Wagon.

Max's sawed-off shotgun misfires twice, as it did in Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior

To prepare themselves to go into battle, ready to sacrifice their lives for Immortan Joe, the War Boys spray their lips and teeth with a silver substance, very much like common spray paint. Both the War Boys and Immortan Joe often speak about this as though it is a religious ritual, saying that it will allow them to "...arrive at the gates of Valhalla, shiny and chrome". However, in a May 2015 interview with CraveOnline, actor Hugh Keays-Byrne, who plays Immortan Joe, said that this practice, which the War Boys think is purely ritualistic, actually involves the inhalation of "...a very euphoric drug" that keeps the War Boys high and suicidally devoted to Immortan Joe. Another clue to the spray's narcotic properties is the fact that "chrome" and "chroming" are Australian slang terms for inhalant abuse. Writer/director George Miller said that he got the idea for this from Australian filmmaker David Bradbury's 1981 Vietnam War documentary "Front Line", in which Cambodian soldiers preparing for battle suspend small jade figurines of Buddha from their mouths with little straps.

This is the second Mad Max featuring Hugh Keays-Byrne. He played the villain Toecutter in Mad Max (1979).

The movie was originally planned as a sequel to Mad Max (1979) and a prequel to The Road Warrior. It is believed that Immortan Joe would have been the Toe Cutter, who survived the accident in Mad Max but was badly injured, resulting in his body being battered and broken. Also, Rictus Erectus was supposed to survive the accident at the end of the film, with a broken neck and some burns, and he would have become Lord Humungous.

There is a theory that Mad Max in this film is actually the Feral Kid from the second film, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981). Max does not speak very much in this film, and he grunts a lot like the Feral Kid. He also has a music box, like the one that Max gives the Feral Kid in the second film.

At one point Toast (Zoë Kravitz) is seen playing with the innards of a small music box, a reference to Max giving a similar device to The Feral Kid (Emil Minty) in Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior.

In the last scene of the movie, Furiosa's eye is swollen shut as a result of injury, the same as Max's is at the end of Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior.

The film editor, Margaret Sixel, is director George Miller's wife. When she asked her husband why he thought she should do it as she had never edited an action film before, Miller replied, "Because if a guy did it, it would look like every other action movie."

After the War Rig is driven off the platform and the platform begins to rise as it is drawn back up into The Citadel, a lone woman can be seen standing in the center. In the previous wide-angle shot of the crowd, The Wretched were shown begging for a place in Immortan Joe's coterie. This woman, played by Debra Ades, was likely brought aboard to be used as a breeder.

This is director George Miller's first R-rated movie since The Witches of Eastwick (1987).

On April 3, 2015, Tom Hardy announced he would sign on for 3 more Mad Max films.

Rosie Huntington who plays a pregnant favored breeder and I were personal friends and remained close even at the height of her modeling career. Alas after getting the role in Transformers: Dark of the Moon she let a lot of her friendships in New York drift apart.

This film is considered an Ozploitation movie, an Australian genre and/or Australian exploitation movie.

At least four members of the cast have been involved in comic book films. Tom Hardy starred as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises (2012), Nicholas Hoult starred as Hank/Beast in X-Men: First Class (2011), Zoë Kravitz who starred as Angel in X-Men: First Class (2011), and Josh Helman who starred as William Stryker in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014). Hoult also starred in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) and will star in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse (2016).

Compiled from IGN and IMDB, and one personal fact from me.

You would think the flame shooting guitarist would give the hunting pack a morale bonus.

James after Brandon Hodge's adventure, did Iggwilv send flowers to Rasputin's funeral (or a daemon to collect his soul) ?
