Non-issue issue: Hayden Christensen might be in the next Star Wars films

HC is DV

“Deal with it.”

 

With only 81 days until the release of the next Star Wars film, Episode VII, people are getting an excited and the rumors are starting to fly. One rumor in particular is getting the loudest minority all up in arms: Hayden Christensen maybe returning to the Star Wars series in the new movies. To quote Obi-Wan to match the internet’s overblown reaction to the rumor: “I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror-“. People, really, this is a non-issue issue. Hayden Christensen’s role of Anakin Skywalker (pre Darth Vader) wasn’t the best, but it was far from the worst. Like the prequel movies themselves, Anakin was the origin story of Darth Vader they got, not the one they wanted. But people, he couldn’t be born force choking noobs and terrorizing the galaxy right out he gate. There had to be a reason why he was so malicious and almost inhuman inside and out in the original movies. The prequels did a good job not only showing how messed up Anakin life is and was (slave, mother was a slave, used by Jedi, used by Sith, in love but wasn’t allow in the order, hid his marriage, manipulated emotionally to do horrible things, turned into a cyborg, then died), but also a perfect example of how the road to hades is paved on good intentions. So people, whether the rumors are true or not, please let this non-issue issue go – it’s really not worth all the hate.

Non-issue Issue: Charcoal Donut Ad

Charcoal-Donut-Ad

 

You know this ad right, the ad that was advertising the new Dunkin’ Donuts ‘Charcoal Donut’ in Thailand. It got various groups, including the ‘Human Rights Watch’, up in arms about it to the point that the Dunkin’ Donuts powers that be apologized for the ad and are taking steps to change the campaign. However I don’t anything ‘offensive’ or ‘racist’ about the ad, although I will agreed its ‘bizarre’ to a point; a lot of foreign commercial are but it doesn’t make them out to attack a group of people. In fact the only part I have a problem with is the name ‘Charcoal Donut’. Who wants to eat a Charcoal Donut? Not me, but the rest of this hot mess is a non-issue.
