A new update to my actual, like, writing of stuff blog, Philip Sandifer: Writer
The Woman’s hospital has adopted a new slogan: “Healing Reimagined.”
I can only assume healing has gotten a grim ‘n gritty reboot.
So they’re apparently releasing an updated “LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary” to commemorate the line’s 15th anniversary, and included with the book (because they always include a special minifigure of some sort with these things) is a “Retro Luke Skywalker”- ie the original 1999 Tatooine Luke, with original face and yellow color and everything.
I’m now watching a load of AFOLs complaining how most of them already have this figure, and how this wastes an opportunity for a new collector’s figure, and how terrible it is, etc., and I’m just left to wonder how much more they could collectively miss the point entirely.
I’m just amused at them being exactly what’s parodied in their own movie.
I mean, this is like if Doctor Who did an episode in which a rich, entitled jackass arrived and spoiled the fun of everybody in fandom, and then some rich and entitled Doctor Who fan kept spouting off on Twitter in such a way as to manage to even make the recovery of Missing Episodes a negative experience.
Oh yeah I love getting anon mansplained about Doctor Who in my ask box, please keep it up. Dinner and a show. Crawl back up your master’s butt, I don’t have room in mine it’s too full of rainbows and the tears of your brother kin.
Oh dear. Now I’m curious what one of my fans said. And which one.

Not Doctor Who but still Doctor Who related - K-9 and Company, Torchwood, Totally Doctor Who, et cetera.
