What would you folks think of someone starting an organised boycott of the upcoming Star Wars not-quite-Original Trilogy DVDs, insisting that Lucas release the REAL originals?
That quote by Mr. Ward about this not being a democracy... It really stuck in my craw. We really have the power to prove that wrong. We can vote, with our wallets, and we should let Lucas know we intend to do just that. We put El Presidente Lucas in charge, we can hit him where it hurts.
He may not care for the films anymore, but they're the reason he is where he is, and why he was able to rerelease them.
I personally will not be helping him to add another wing to the ranch because of this, and feel it is an insult to every single one of his fans.
And those who think this is a crap idea, and I *am* nuts for even consdering this... Please move along. I'm just asking to see if there are folks interested. Mock me on IRC, IMs, and maybe another post here later in the day. This is not the place I want that.
And no, I'm not even saying I should be the person running this, and don't really want to (Hence the losing my mind part) and can hopefully foist this idea off on some friends of mine, with some aid from me, or a comittee. I just am curious to see what folks think.
Original means original, after all.
