Obi Wan Kenobi by 芝浦.
Ewan McGregor may reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in a “Star Wars” spinoff film!
While it may be a rumor at the moment, it is very likely that it may not remain a rumor for long. Ewan McGregor may play fan favorite Obi-Wan once again and this time could have a film entirely centered around his character.
Since Disney obtained the rights to the “Star Wars” franchise, they have had huge plans to capitalize on their earning potential. Earlier this year they committed to multiple films along with 3 additional spinoff films with one making it’s debut in 2016. Director Josh Trank (“Fantastic Four”) and Director Gareth Edwards (“Godzilla”) have been linked to two of the spinoffs thus far which are rumored to be centered around Han Solo, Boba Fett, and/or the X-Wing Squadron.
MakingStarWars.net recently leaked information that one of the spinoff films focuses on Obi-Wan. They also claim that early production for the film has already begun after a formalized fan poll was taken regarding their favorite character and Obi-Wan beat out characters such as Han Solo, Yoda, and even Darth Vader.
Having JUST watched Ep 2 yesterday for the first time, and being mildly traumatized (in a good way, if that makes any sense) about how PTSD and depressed Obi-Wan is the whole fucking movie, here’s another resounding OH FUCKING HELLS YES. I want more. Someone mentioned something about him and Force Ghost Qui standing around the desert talking for 2+ hours, can we get that please?!
Sergeant Phelps worked for General Eisenhower. Four decades after Eisenhower had defeated the Axis powers, Phelps recalled an extraordinary event. One day, the general told her, “I’m giving you an order to ferret those lesbians out. We’re going to get rid of them.”
“I looked at him and then I looked at his secretary who was standing next to me, and I said, ‘Well, sir, if the general pleases, sir, I’ll be happy to do this investigation for you. But you have to know that the first name on the list will be mine.’ “
“And he was kind of taken aback a bit. And then this women standing next to me said, ‘Sir, if the General pleases, you must be aware that Sergeant Phelp’s name may be second, but mine will be first.”
“Then I looked at him, and said, ‘Sir, you’re right. They’re lesbians in the WAC battalion. And if the general is prepared to replace all the file clerks, all the section commanders, all the drivers-every woman in the WAC detachment-and there were about nine hundred and eighty something of us-then I’ll be happy to make that list. But I think the general should be aware that among those women are the most highly decorated women in the war. There have been no cases of illegal pregnancy. There have been no cases of AWOL. There have been no cases of misconduct. And as a matter of fact, every six months since we’ve been here, the general has awarded us a commendation for meritorious conduct.”
“And he said, ‘Forget the order.’”

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8
This makes me laugh every time I see it.
I’m reminded of Monstrous Regiment, which is awesome.

did anyone else see the edward snowden interview in the guardian about two days ago where he said that most of the NSA agents doing checks through people’s data are men aged 18-22 and that when they access photographs of attractive women naked they all send them to each other for reasons that are 100% not professional
like, if you have naked selfies on your phone, even if you have never sent them to anyone or moved them anywhere, these fucking mouthbreathers could be downloading them and sending them to all their friends

Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.
Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.
Re-reblogging for that last part
