Star Wars Episode VII - Give-A-Shit-O-Meter

Posted by Daltons chin dimple on Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Amazingly, after the prequels, I honestly think I am only at about 60%. Maybe the original trilogy was such a lightning in a bottle moment that caught me at exactly the right time of my life - as a child, avid reader of the Marvel comics, watcher of the Droids and Ewoks cartoons, player with the toys etc. etc. - where Star Wars was all consuming that I am not sure that they will do anything but disappoint me.

What about you?

 Why not just have Han as an aged adventurer.  Still cynical.  Divorced from Leia, who can still be snarky.

I pray every night, before I go to bed, that we will not hear any classic line reversals in this film. "I love you. I know." is a giant softball being lobbed at the plate while a 'roided Sammy Sosa waits to crush it.

I dare JJ not to go into that territory, but everything he has previously made has proved otherwise.

Proven. You meant to say proven.  Not "proved."

Both "proved" and "proven" are acceptable past participles. "Proved" is actually more common. "Proven" is more commonly used as an adjective than as a past participle.

"Proven" sounds better. 

To me.

 Every time this thread pops up, I wonder whether you should pronounce it "give-a-SHIT-oh-mee-ter," or "give-a-shih-TAHM-ih-ter."

I pronounce it the first way in my head, but only because of the hyphens and the capitalized O. If it were written "Giveashitometer," I'd probably pronounce it the other way.

I'm going to go ahead and allow both pronunciations. I'll even allow some switch-hitting. I switch-hit with the pronunciation of "either."

I pronounce "either" as "ether".

Don't forget to disguise that wad of cash in your front pocket. You ain't auditioning for Boogie Nights!
