  1. The concept of Vader and children figurines are like Miley Cyrus apologizing for all her stupidity… Never happened.

  2. “Denham Psycho” was brilliant.

  3. They could do that front screen projection thing now better and easier with that new projector that you can put on the floor right in front of the screen, because you can literally have that behind the subjects so shadows will become a non-issue…
