Lapti Nek

A friend emailed me:

Sy Snootles and the whole Max Rebo band occupy a very important historical place. Star Wars was awesome; Empire was awesome; the opening scenes of Jedi were awesome, where the droids and later Luke establish themselves at Jabba's. And then came the Rebo band. And then came the rest of Jedi, which mostly rehashed earlier ideas in an unawesome way (Luke going back to Dagobah, the second Death Star). And then came the prequels.

When future historians look back and try to tease out the first flaw that would go on to doom the whole enterprise, I think blame will fall on a flamboyant strange-lipped singer and a blue elephantine keyboardist.

I wholeheartedly agree.

Also: this.
