Site Note: The Annoyance of Reality

Time Killers, you know how much I hate talking about real life.  It’s tremendously irritating and defeats the spirit of this site.  However, I do want to take a second and apologize that posts are a bit thin of late.  This is partly because we are currently in the movie dead zone that will hopefully end in a few weeks when The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials comes out.  No new movies worth seeing makes it difficult to parcel out reviews.  Primarily, though, my life has gotten busy on a Monty Python level of silly.  I just wanted to tell you that I will always make an effort to get a little piece of geek up every day, but there will be some days when I’m simply going to faceplant on my front porch and that’s not going to happen.  Remember to also check the Killing Time Facebook Page at http://facebook.com/killingtime2014.  Even on days when I can’t get something up here, I’ll pass along cool things to the Facebook page and that’s been the case for awhile.  So if you’re on FB, and you’re lying if you’re telling me you’re not, find the page and “Like” us to get updates there.

POLL REMINDER: Best Star Wars Movie VOTE VOTE VOTE

  • Just a few days remain in our Star Wars poll.  The Empire Strikes Back looks like a sure winner, but there is a three way race for second place that’s razor-thin between Episodes III, IV and VI.  Make sure you get your votes in before the poll closes!

The time has come for the geek question of all geek questions: which is the greatest Star Wars movie?  I was going to make this November’s poll to lead us up to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.  However, I have a feeling we’re all going to be talking a lot about Star Wars this month so I thought I’d unleash the beast into the geek pit now.
