A survey by online pollster Nate Silver’s site FiveThirtyEight.com determined that Jar Jar Binks, who appeared in Episode I: The Phantom Menace, was disliked by 37 percent of respondent, compared to 29 percent who said they had a “favorable” view of the character, resulting in a net rating of -8.
But by comparison, a Post analysis of 578 different surveys found that Congress had a -57 net rating, thanks to a 69 percent disapproval rate, with only 12 percent of respondents saying they approved of legislators’ performance.
Four for you, Jar Jar Binks. You go, Jar Jar Binks.
Green Brain Comics in Dearborn, Michigan
Green Brain Comics
I was very, very surprised to see no reference to Green Brain Comics under the Michigan tag. Their staff should be commended for being respectful and making the overall shopping experience a comfortable one.
Main thing is that it’s what a small business’ environment should be like—clean, well-lit, and organized. Really diverse selection too. In addition to new and old issues of the main american comic titles, they have an impressive inventory of international titles, indie comics, and even an ashcan (small comics) rack.
The store is situated in one of the older buildings in that part of Dearborn, yet the store is on the same level and there are no steps to negotiate. The foyer is rather constricted because of where the stairs to the record store above start, but the rest of the store is pretty comfortable with its generous aisles. The only other access issue I can think of is that the parking lot would pose a bit of an issue for specialized vans.
Within fandom, the setting of Star Wars is often called the GFFA, short for ‘galaxy far, far away.’
The acronym caught on to such an extent that one of the galactic governments in the (non-canon) post-Return of the Jedi novels was called the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances.
"Someone really wanted our initials to spell out GFFA." - A really old Ric Olie, probably.
Underrated satire Drop Dead Gorgeous came and went in theaters 15 years ago, rejected by audiences and critics alike. Now that it’s a cult classic, the cast and crew tell BuzzFeed why the film is more popular than ever before.
