To continue the thread from yesterday’s musing on villainy–and thanks as always to those that responded–I figured it’s worth sharing my opinion on the greatest screen villain ever.

Is torture justifiable in certain circumstances, even if your own moral code supposedly goes […]Read more "On Pain of Torture"
It’s Sunday, I’m tired, I’m working from home to prep for a skirmish about a site at work (I will win) and I’ve got about 6 blogs in progress but not ready for prime-time. So I dug one out of the old Star Wars blog archive from the original kessel korner. I’m on a mission […]Read more "Flashback Blog: Mace-ing with the Dark Side"
