XKCD’s Randall Munroe’s piece on the utter futility of getting up in the morning (or indeed watching fatuous entertainment news shows) really gets into the guts of what it’s like in the endless velvet nothingness of existence. In a universe made almost entirely of the absence of something, punctuated with violent and cataclysmic birthing pools of giant Hydrogen atomic balls, firing deadly radiation everywhere and nuturing only a very tiny number of miniscule globules of detritus, all of which are unlikely to be able to sustain the absurdly specific requirements of our fragile and ultimately rapidly aging forms, frankly the end (while maybe not nigh) is bloody obvious.Best to simply shrug and resign your ancestors to the cold and lonely death in open space or the fiery annihaltion of a Supernova.
Remember: Between the sky and the ground and sea is our Fishbowl. We are the fish. Good luck out there people.
(Unless we redesign ourselves like the first Guardians of the Galaxy – that’d be awesome).
With one of the universe’s silliest names he is non-the-less the most adventurous and well known jedi in the Galaxy is Pau’sa Carni (Sam Davies). Famed in holovids throughout all of the most advanced and fringe planetary systems he had made a career from playing Jedi Knights in adventure holos. However, Pau is a lapsed Jedi – trusted enough by Yoda and Windu to operate secretly outside the order. Now, with Order 66 tearing through the Jedi ranks they need all the help they can get.
Even if that help comes with a cheesy grin and an even cheesier quip and a flash of an out of date lightsabre blade.
A recent commission to finish the existing line work for the back flipping stage fighter Mr Samuel Davies – possibly one of the greatest and most rubber faced actors of our time. Living and working between his native Cardiff and London he is an elusive character and we haven’t seen him in some time. But we wish him well with all of his ass kicking, gurning and brilliantly performing adventures.
