A WORD ON THE CONTENTS OF THIS EZINEThe 'rating' of this ezine is for a Mature Audience. There MAY be instances of contributors or writers including adult themes or coarse language. While the editorial team will tone down or outright reject the use or overuse of extreme language we feel in some instances it is best to allow the author to express themselves as they see fit.An example of what we allow through is contained within this issue; STAR WARS EUPHEMISMS FOR MASTURBATION and THE TOP 11 THINGS UTTERED BY YODA WHILE MAKING LOVE.If you are offended by this type of humor then either scroll down the page past those contents or unsubscribe (firstname.lastname@example.org)If such language or references to adult themes is off putting but you'd still enjoy a regular dose of Star Wars we recommend subscribing to RebelPilot, a weekly Star Wars ezine (email@example.com) which is tamer but no less entertaining.It is not our intention to offend but given that some of the humor we've featured have brought BOTH objection and encouragement in emailed responses we realize we are treading a fine line when it comes to peoples tastes and expectations.If we were inundated with original quality material that's entertaining AND clean we would most definitely run it over stuff sent in that's been found and author unknown.

TK421 is a Star Wars fanzine and will only mention non-Star Wars sites or mailing lists for nothing but the benefit of self.But a TK421 reader forwarded a snippet to me (a word from a Father of Slain Columbine Student) and seeing as the media ignored it I thought that that made it newsworthy enough to at least paste the email into a html document and link from the zine."The media did not report this, so let the nation hear this man's speech. Please send this out to everyone you can -- they are words that should make people at least stop and think, no matter what their beliefs may or may not be."Check out http://www.geocities.com/imperialemployee/speech.htm
For the benefit of Craig (TK421 Web Master) who thinks the little TIE ASCII's are cool, we've copied some from the ones frequently seen in RebelPilot, purveyor of one-line-ascii and has readers sending in other Star Wars ASCII of grandiose proportions.

IMMEDIATE EMPLOYMENTPosition Available Immediately: Apprentice Sith Lord, Dark Side Consulting Group.An unexpected position has opened up in the Dark Side Consulting Group for an Apprentice Sith Lord. The ideal candidate for this position would like galactic travel and possess a complete understanding of, and competence with the Force, or demonstrate a willingness to learn.Duties include: Performing competitive intelligence, hands-on intervention in support of the Sith Master's planning initiatives, ability to travel the galaxy widely, and operating a variety of laser-powered hand weapons and high-powered space/air vehicles. Some slaying of enemies of the Dark Side is also required, which may be performed using the Force or hand weapons.Qualified applicants would possess good communications skills (especially when speaking in menacing whispers), and would be action-oriented individuals and risk takers. A background in study of the Force (light side or dark) is desirable, as would typically be acquired by those with advanced degrees or significant course work in Jedi Arts from the University of Coruscant.Applicants should also be familiar with holographic projection equipment, possess a valid galactic pilot's license (for all classes of ships), and must show a willingness to give in to their hate. A proven track record of using fear and/or Jedi mind tricks to control others is also desirable, as is the ability to speak several galactic languages. Ideal candidates for this position would also have no children or other living relatives who are strong in the ways of the Force. (A new hire would be given several weeks to meet this requirement.) Compensation for this position is commensurate with experience, and is extremely competitive for this field. Benefits include a generous severance package, a company starship, and a dark-colored clothing allowance. The Apprentice Sith Lord reports to and works closely with the Sith Master, and experience in such small, team-based organizations is vital to the success of the master's plans. Discretion is also highly valued, as is the ability to see the future before it happens. Applications will be accepted until the end of August.Transmit them to email@example.com*****************************************************Dark Side CG ™ is a small and highly-focused organization, founded a long time ago in a galaxy far away.

Found a most excellent picture; Amidala and Obi-Wan in a manga style. I've posted it at http://www.geocities.com/imperialemployee/amidala007.jpg for public viewing. <COPYRIGHT SORT OF KNOWN>.If you're a budding artist or have already got an impressive body of work then we'll soon be calling for material to be posted at the official TK421 site.

We'll be back again in two weeks time. Please feel free to inundate us with your own original material whether it's witty or thought provoking.
This issue is relatively lean (7 pages) but you get that when you've got an Empire to run.
Yours In The Full Blown Glory Of The Empire
