"carnivorous attitude toward life"?Edit

What, pray tell, is a "carnivorous attitude toward life"? Angr (talkcontribs) 08:29, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

A desire to eat any form of life that constitutes meat I suppose. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 18:39, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

source citesEdit

Hmm. Does this article cite its sources?

Info sourceEdit

I just watched the movie for the first time in about 20 years the other day. It doesn't say anything about power lines or pulses or feedback. I'm questioning the source of these statements. Cobratom 01:20, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Why ...Edit

... are they constantly decomposing? --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 22:10, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

According to the DC novelisation, because they have "no soul to arrest the process"Dark hyena (talk) 22:16, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

Ah. I see. I never liked this film. I love a good fantasy but methinks this one veers a bit too far into realms of daftness. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 15:08, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

Skeksis: Endangered Bird?Edit

From the article on May 22, 2010: "The Skeksis are an endangered species of bird of which none remain in the wild and only ten in captivity. Recently one was born at the Franklin Park Zoo in New Zealand.[1] A parody of the birds act as the main villains in the 1982 fantasy film The Dark Crystal, its companion book The World of The Dark Crystal and the TokyoPop prequel Legends of the Dark Crystal."

While this is pretty obvious vandalism, I found it quite subtle and hilarious! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Salmonreis (talkcontribs) 02:30, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Une occurence supplémentaireEdit

Image of SkeksisEdit

I added a free image of the Skeksis, only to find a commented-out note left behind by the ImageRemovalBot: "Deleted image removed: [[:File:img skeksis.jpg|thumb|right| Skeksis (specifically skekUng the Garthim Master) on permanent display at Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA]], because the image had been deleted, and for the record, it's been deleted twice. I can only assume it was uploaded without proper sourcing and was treated as a fair-use image. In fact, the original (non-derivative) image was licensed properly on Flickr, so I uploaded it to Commons where it should be approved shortly after I post this message. My message here is simply to serve as an explanation for anyone surprised to see a familiar image re-appear (yet again). – Kerαunoςcopiagalaxies 08:46, 20 February 2013 (UTC)
