Readers of this blog may remember Charles Lippincott, the man who helped to market and merchandise the Original Trilogy, and who is currently working on a book about the Alien movie franchise.
Back in March of 2019, Lippincott had a Lippinfit, in which he helped to spread lies about Rebel Force Radio. He also babbled something incoherent about democracy and getting laid. A few days after my initial blog post, Lippincott had another Lippinfit. He mumbled something unintelligible about the purely imaginary alt-right, and the drones in his Collective then cheered him on. And now, Lippincott is having his third known Lippinfit.
Well Charles, the Force is an invention of George Lucas and doesn’t actually exist. So if you believe in it, then you have bigger problems than butting chests.
But what is the “ugly fan behavior” that Lippincott refers to? Is it the “evolved” Reylos who dox and stalk Adam Driver? Is it Jason Ward from MakingStarWars.net editing the KMT Wookiepedia entry with racist comments to stir up artificial controversy? Is it LFL rep Bryan Young chasing underaged Reylos in online sex chats? Is it Antifa Star Wars fans assaulting another man’s head?
Unlikely. “Ugly behavior” in the dippy hippy world is the expression of opinions that differ from that of Charles. Such as this:
The mainstream media supported the war? What on Earth is Charles talking about? It’s the mainstream media that invented the Napalm Girl Narrative for cryin’ out loud.
Well, Charles, you and your fellow uneducated comrades can read all about your historical and geopolitical misunderstandings right here.
But what’s really interesting about Lippincott’s disposition here, is his promotion of J.W. Rinzler’s Alien Book.
One wonders if Lippincott is aware of Rinzler’s ill-fated project, “The Rise And Fall Of Star Wars.” Would that book have been considered “ugly behavior?” Only Charles can tell us.
