a mountain lions long shoot!”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
“What the hell is nostalgia doing in a science-fiction film? With the whole universe and all the future to play in, Lucas took his marvelous toys and crawled under the fringed cloth on the parlor table, back into a nice safe hideyhole, along with Flash Gordon and the Cowardly Lion and Luck Skywalker and the Flying Aces and the Hitler Jugend. If theres a message there, I dont think I want to hear it.”
—Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)
