It is August 11th here in the USA. On this day in 1994, Peter Cushing died of prostate cancer. While Cushing starred in multiple succesful movies (including the 1958 film of Dracula and multiple films with Christopher Lee), Star wars fans know him as Grand Moff Tarkin. Cushing brought his own acting style to the character that made him one of the most memorable characters in Star Wars. So today we pay our respects to a great actor who helped make the Original Star Wars film a thing to remember.

May he rest in peace, he was a great actor and his passing was a loss to Star Wars fans everywhere.

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

Thank you for your work in star wars and other films. Rest in peace.
"Jedi do not fight for peace. That's only a slogan, and is as misleading as slogans always are. Jedi fight for civilization, because only civilization creates peace. We fight for justice because justice is the fundamental bedrock of civilization: an unjust civilization is built upon sand. It does not long survive a storm." - Mace Windu

As he once said in a certain movie:
"The regional governors now have direct control over their territories. Fear will keep the local systems in line. Fear of this battle station."

May he rest in peace.
“Equality is a lie…A myth to appease the masses. Simply look around and you will see the lie for what it is! There are those with power, those with the strength and will to lead. And there are those meant to follow—those incapable of anything but servitude and a meager, worthless existence.”

Tipping my helmet for one of, if not The most heartless movie villains of all time. May you find freedom in the force.
