The Finger Points Outwards - No. 114

AUSTRALIAN RULES FOOTBALL/HUMOUR: The AFL club songs ranked by ambition and boastfulness.

FILM: Someone tries to argue that the big bad guy of the first three Star Wars episodes was meant to be Jar Jar Binks. I would like to believe it was true – it would make those movies a lot more interesting – but I still think Jar Jar was simply an attempt to appeal to the kids.

FILM/BOOKS/TELEVISION/COMIC BOOKS: Still on Star Wars, an argument as to why Disney’s erasing the expanded Star Wars Universe – i.e. the novels and comics that followed the movies – was a good thing.

ECONOMICS/CULTURE/SPORTS: Sadly my favourite website, and one which I linked to often here, GRANTLAND, is gone. This article discusses the problems about making a website like GRANTLAND profitable, and how it may be done so.

BOOKS: The 10 worst typos in the Bible, including the incorrect translation of Yeshua.
