Web

Yes, even the dark lord of the Empire has a blog now, and it turns out he's a sensitive soul who, like anybody, has to put up with foolish underlings and cybernetic body malfunctions.

"It can be challenging to maintain your dignity as a dark tyrannical overlord when the circuitry in your left leg constantly misfires, threatening to send you off on a mad pirouette without notice," he writes in one post. "It requires a serious effort of will to maintain my poise, the tendrils of my connection to the Force reaching deep into space to feel out my distant quarry and at the same time wrapped around the mechanisms of my own body to keep them working."

It makes you kind of sorry for the big schlub.
