Also, Ableton Live 4.01 is totally cool. And by cool, I mean awesome.

And I've been thinking about Star Wars lately, and the more you examine the story, the more it falls apart. Very very very stupid huge plotholes. I've already posted the one about Django Fett before. Here's another. So Anakin made C3-PO? So C3-PO was like his best friend when he was 6 or 7 years old, right? So am I supposed to believe that when C3-PO shows up in Empire that Darth, aka, Anakin, doesn't say or do anything to acknowledge this? Like "Luke, I am your father, and... Threepio? Threepio? Old buddy, HI! How are you doing? It seems like I haven't seen you in forever!"

I don't know. Also, what about Yoda? It really bugs me that Lucas has never said what his species is. And what does it say about Yoda's moral cowardice, that while all the other Jedi are getting exterminated, first by the stresses of the Clone War, and then by a probably insanely homicidal Anakin Skywalker, Yoda is hiding out on Dagobah? Huh? The greatest Jedi Master of all time, hides while the rest of the Jedi get exterminated?

Another thing. So, when Obi-Wan decides he's going to hide Luke (apparently knowing nothing about Leia), he takes Luke to... Tatooine? To hide him with Anakin's stepbrother? And why in the world wouldn't Darth Vader immediately go there to look for Luke? Also, why is it that Darth Vader senses nothing, nothing whatsoever of his connection to Leia, even when overseeing her torture?

Sorry, rant mode off.

Oh yeah, and if you want to read some GOOD science fiction, read Schlock Mercenary. Howard recently quit his job to pursue his dream of being a full time cartoonist. Good for him. Follow your bliss buddy!

ableton live 4.03 is the bomb. i had some flakiness with 4.0.1 but the updates fixed that for me. i have been using it to compose my live set and i have been so busy trying to actually produce music i haven't had time to explore some of the new features...that said i did compose some live drums which might get tweaked on the fly.

as far as star wars goes...i view the new trilogy as a host of seperate (and rather shoddy movies) if you view the original 3 together not a lot of plot holes but cobble on the new stuff the way lucas did and find a crapload of weakness...i still maintain episode 5 is one of the greatest movies ever made.
