What is this Epic Rap thingy?

post #1803 of 2946

From a certain point of view, we all see.
Your focus will determine your reality.
Fear leads to anger and anger leads to hate.
Cut that shit out before it's too late.
There's no mistaking, you have a bee in your bonnet.
Step away from the forums, maybe read a sonnet.
It seems like you really have an axe to grind.
But it's much ado about nothing, keep that in mind.
I have no hard feelings, no seriously, it's true.
Not to mention, I'm rubber and you're glue.
From the bottom of my heart to the top of my medulla.
I hope you find happiness and make plenty of moolah.
Ultimately though, the ball is in your court.
Feel free to answer with a nasty retort.
That's all I've got to say. Sayonara. Adieu.
Live long and prosper and may the Force be with you!

What sort of creature is he??
post #1806 of 2946

I was just giving MrSaxon a sample of the aforementioned epic rap thingy.

post #1807 of 2946

no

post #1808 of 2946

That was beautiful, Barry. 

 

You should record it and send it to Nooj.

post #1809 of 2946
Can this thread possibly pass the pages TFA's pre-release amounted to? Does it need Barry to get there?
post #1810 of 2946

Fraid so.

I'd rather you rap all day long than try to hypothesize any more whatsoever about how future movies are gonna survive Carrie Fisher's passing. Stick a fork in that shit..
post #1812 of 2946

Fraid, uh, no, man. I understand where you're coming from, but it's a conversation that's unavoidable.

Here's the conversation: Carrie Fisher is dead. Episode 9 opens with Leia's funeral.

 

The end.

post #1815 of 2946

I bet you $1 that Leia does show up in Ep. 9...as a Force Ghost, silently standing in the background.

 

That's the only digital recreation that would be respectful.

 

Anything more...holy shit, no.

post #1816 of 2946

The point is, even if we all agree that that should be the case, how does Rian Johnson get us there without mutilating VIII.

post #1817 of 2946
Yup. We don't need a FAST 7 wink wink, just do it the old fashioned way where a character dies off screen and life goes on.

Just release VIII as it is THEN worry about what to do with IX.

Maybe, but there's a time and a place. And it's certainly not the time yet.

 

A woman died, which caused her mother so much grief she died a day later.

I've been a fan of Star Wars since I was 8, and I'm now 30. It dominated my teen years in a massively unhealthy way. And sure, it will have enormous consequences for the story, but right now, who cares?

Also, we don't even now what happens in episode 8, let alone what was planned for 9. Let Lucasfilm, the story writers and Carrie's friends and family figure it out in time.

I care, and it doesn't mean I care any less about Carrie's passing.

post #1820 of 2946
Just sit back and wait to see how things play out.
post #1821 of 2946
I'm not *too* averse to recasting if the story demands it.

This.

 

Nobody knows if Leia was even supposed to survive through the next movie. Maybe she does, maybe she doesn´t. There isn´t much point in speculating what they are going to do with the story, when they are one step ahead of us.

BEAUTIFUL.

Barry, I'm having a really rough year, just like most people; and it would bring tears of joy if I could read your Epic Rap just one last time.
post #1824 of 2946
Aaaaand blocked. Oh, I see Barry edited his post to seem less callous.

Seem being the operative word.

Barry wrote a rap that covered the entire saga. It was very, very long.

He used to post it on every STAR WARS-related post on AICN back in the day. As soon as AOTC came out, he filled in the missing episode with stanza upon stanza of new content; he did the same after ROTS was released.

It was absolutely amazing to behold.

Except fanboys love to try to be a step ahead of movies these days just to say "I told you so!" about their fan theories feeling smart and smug about it. I really hate that mentality. I just want to let a film take me on its own terms and see how it goes.

Sorry. I can't seem to find it.

post #1828 of 2946
You probably think I'm kidding, but I've actually dug through old AICN talk backs to try and find it.

I'd settle for any piece or parts you can unearth.
post #1829 of 2946
Wait, did you just delete your comment and then repost? Because originally, you said you can't seem to find "all of it."

"All" is not the same as "none," Barry.

Welcome, to Barry Woodworld

He's always been a few stanzas short of a poem..

What I posted above is all I can find of the original. The computers I originally composed them on are long gone.

Yeah, the cops generally don't give evidence back..
post #1834 of 2946
All those Chloe Bennett photos taken from iCould all gone.
post #1835 of 2946

It's not Star Wars, but I did find this:

 

Raoul, you fool, your brain lacks fuel, so stop playing Zool, and go back to school.
You think you're a jewel, and oh so cool, but you're just a tool, that broke the golden rule.
You're an empty spool, mouth full of drool, and eating your stool, like freshly made gruel.
You ghoul, how can you be so cruel, to drown an old mule, in the above-ground pool?
I Abdul, from Istanbul, challenge you to a duel, on the festival of Yule, in your vestibule.

 

I can't, for the life of me, figure out why I wrote it.

Just put a hole in my work laptop from punching that image repeatedly.  Thanks Agent.

So much irony. I rather watch BATMAN & ROBIN than that review.

It's just me trying to find ways to amuse myself in the Era of Barry Woodward.
post #1850 of 2946
It's even better when the raps are presented in narrative form.
