Thoughts from an Emperor

reichenflying asked: seriously for a dark lord your background's pretty colorful and bubbly...just sayin'. you might want to change that...

There’s nothing more evil than bubbly colors.


Popularity of the Star Wars movies, according to twitter

Six days ago @lordpalpatine startet a project on twitter. The goal was to decide which Star Wars movies are most/least popular among the fans.

More information about the whole process later, here are the results:


6. Episode II: Attack of the Clones



5. Episode I: The Phantom Menace



4. Episode III: Revenge of the Sith


Note: it took Episode III 40 minutes to get more retweets than episodes I and II got in 24 hours.



3. Episode IV: A New Hope


Note: It took Episode IV seven hours to get more retweets than Episode III did in 24.



2. Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi


Note: It took Episode VI four hours to get more retweets than Episode III got in 24 hours



1. Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back


Note: It took Episode V 16 minutes to get more retweets than Episode II got in 24 hours.
It took Episode V a little less than two hours to get more retweets than Episode IV got in 24 hours.



Some information:

Every tweet was given 24 hours, give or take a few minutes, before the screenshot is taken. I didn’t tweet anything else for approximately 16 hours on that account.
I chose to tweet around 23:20 (11:20 PM) Central European Time, to maximize the audience worldwide. I mention the official @starwars account in every tweet, hoping they would retweet and thereby increase the audience significantly (they didn’t).

The screenshots are taken on favstar.fm, a website which tracks your received retweets and favorites better than twitter itself does. Although it’s not 100% accurate, it’s far better than twitter’s own solution, which stops counting at 50.

No big surprises in the result, although I personally expected Return of the Jedi to be below A New Hope. Considering twitter has users of all ages, I was interested in seeing how the individual movies would do against each other, and how the prequel trilogy would do against the original trilogy.

A big thanks to everyone who participated!

Losing my composure

Original Lyrics by R.E.M.

Oh, Luke. You’re bitter.
It’s bigger than you,
And you are not me.
I think that I will kill you
The hatred in your eyes.
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I’m lifted up.

That’s me in my chamber,
That’s me being lif-ted,
I’m losing my composure
Trying to keep my cool
And I don’t know if I can do it.
Oh no I’ve said too much,
I think he’ll throw me down.
I thought that I felt you doubting
I thought that I felt your fear
I think I thought I saw you fry.

I’m being shafted
In every waking hour
I’ve been fooling my apprentice
Trying to keep an eye on you,
You’re a useful and evil tool, fool.
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I’m lifted up.
You traitor Sith
You traitor Sith
Think what you’re doing to me
You traitor Sith
The slip that brought you
to your knees failed
What if all these Skywalkers
Come flailing around
Now I’m in the air.
I think I can hear some screaming
I think I can hear my voice.
I think I should’ve let you die.

But that was just a scream
That was just my scream

That’s me in my chamber,
That’s me being lif-ted,
I’m losing my composure
Trying to keep my cool
And I don’t know if I can do it.
Oh no I’ve said too much,
I think he’ll throw me down.
I thought that I felt you doubting
I thought that I felt your fear
I think I thought I saw you fry.

But that was just a scream
Try, fly! Why fly?
That was just a scream
Just a scream, just a scream
Scream.

Don’t make me destroy you.
