Star Wars actor Ewan McGregor says he was disappointed by the last film in the epic science fiction series.

The actor, who plays the Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, said in an interview released Monday that "one of the things about Episode I [that] I was slightly disappointed by was, I thought it was […] kind of flat."

"I think there is much more humor and there is much more color in Episode II," he added.

Four more weeks until Attack of the Clones tickets go on sale. The movie hits theaters Thursday May 16.

I'm moving on Wednesday.

After two quarters in our trapezoidal room, my drug dealer roommate moved out for reasons unknown. With ten weeks of school left, the UCLA housing department decided that they want me to move in with another guy whose roommate also recently moved out. They call it "housing consolidation." I call it a hassle.

Personally, I think it woulda been easier if the housing department just moved someone else into my room. Oh well. At least now I'll have a normal rectangular room.

I've only met my new roommate briefly. Here's what I know about him though. His name is Chris Barsi, he's on the UCLA ski/snowboard team, he likes the Beastie Boys, and he grew up two miles away from where I grew up. 640 South Springer Road, Los Altos, CA 94024. Crazy…

I finalized my schedule for spring quarter.

First, we have English 10C or "English Literature, 1832 to the Present," part three of a three-part series on the complete history of English literature (abridged). Almost finished.

Next, we have English 85 or "The American Novel," an English course for math and science majors, unbeknownst to me at the time of class registration. The professor spent all of week one teaching me how to write a thesis paper.

These two particular classes exist back to back. Imagine going from AP English to ESL in ten minutes.

There's really no better way to end a week than with a four-hour English death block. Discussion, lecture, lecture, discussion…all beginning at 9:00 AM. Whoo!

At least I have Tuesdays and Thursdays off. I went outta my way to secure Thursdays off this quarter. You can probably guess why.

I have to read a total of thirteen books in ten weeks for both classes combined. I can do it, although one of the assigned books is Jane Eyre. NOOOOOOOOOO!!! I tried to get ahead in reading the book and fell asleep nine pages into it. Reading Victorian novels for school should be illegal. I also have to read Wide Sargasso Sea, a re-telling of Jane Eyre. That's too much Jane Eyre.

Finally, we have Film and TV 145C or "Creative Authoring for the World Wide Web."

On Monday, I learned what HTML is and how to code it on a Mac. I feel smarter already.

Fabian (the professor) wants to teach us how to use generic DHTML, Javascript and Dreamweaver too.

A wise man once said, "Fuck Macromedia Dreamweaver, y'all. 'Less y'all rep'sentin' fo' all th' hand-codin' pimps out there, fuck res' y'all." My sentiments exactly.
