Preamble

Back in 2005, I wrote a piece about the Star Wars films called "A New Sith, or Revenge of the Hope", originally for a mailing list of friends. One of those friends asked if he could host the piece on his website, so that he could point others to it. He did and the piece gradually gained an unexpectedly huge popularity over the next few years.

Recently, the website hosting A New Sith went down, so I've set up this journal to give it a new home. Other pieces that I've written may well find a home here in the near future.

Meanwhile, A New Sith itself is below at: A New Sith, or Revenge of the Hope

Pretty advanced stuff you've written there, but the date/time stamp is impressive ... most impressive.

Preamble
I see this is more of a pre-preamble, considering it was posted Jan. 3, 2015.... which is a little more than a year into the future. Niiiicee.

We mentioned your 'New Sith' piece in a podcast.
Hey Keith. Just to let you know, we started a podcast recently and mentioned some of your theories about Chewbacca in today's episode. We link to your "New Sith" piece in our show notes. Reading that piece a few years ago was part of my inspiration for getting a podcast started. So cheers to you!

Here's a link if you're interested: http://loosecanon.nerdglow.com/episodes/episode-2-how-wookiees-work/

Spooky coincidences
Both your Star Wars and Bombadil pieces are brilliant. But you don't need me to tell you that and I didn't choose to leave a comment solely to say that.

See, I find it bizarre that I have stumbled across this blog today, on the exact date of its erroneous timestamp.

It's even spookier that it's four years to the day since "A New Sith" was posted here (if we can trust its timestamp!), and two years to the day since another Anonymous posted the first comment to this preamble.

And consider, too, that the first comment to "Oldest and Fatherless" was talking about another odd coincidence in the timing of things being posted to this LiveJournal.

Lastly, the whole motivation (it seems to me) for "A New Sith", aside from having a good laugh and a bit of poking fun at the movies, is to try and devise a consistent explanation for the many strange coincidences that the movies contain, especially in light of the prequel trilogy.

This whole blog is swimming in coincidence. I tip my hat to you and whatever government conspiracy or mysterious cosmic force has made it so.
