Star Wars Marathon This is the most ideal way to celebrate the day. But since the 4th falls on a Thursday this year, staying home andContinue reading “Star Wars Day”

12 Days of Star Wars

Nerds!! There are only 11 days left till our eyes behold the next installment in the Star Wars saga. (10 if you plan on going on Thursday night!) This Star Wars is going to have a decidedly different flavor than the 7 that have preceded it. There will be no scrawl at the beginning ofContinue reading “12 Days of Star Wars”

Prequels and Sequels and Spinoffs, Oh My!

If you are someone who is tired of seeing the same 7 or 8 franchises roll into theaters time and time again, I feel bad for ya, son. I got 99 problems, but that is definitely not one of them! I LOVE them! And I’m not saying all of them or any of them deserveContinue reading “Prequels and Sequels and Spinoffs, Oh My!”

A House Divided

No, I’m not talking about the current state of American politics. I’m talking about Star Wars. I am an…avid lover of Star Wars, this you know. So is my cousin. But when it comes to The Force Awakens we have vastly differing opinions. Mine is one of love and effervescence, his of skepticism and tentativeContinue reading “A House Divided”

Pink!

When I was a kid, I hated pink, with a vengeance. My deep and utter loathing extended into middle school and high school and even into college. I thought myself to be a cool-colors kinda girl, gravitating to blues, greens and purples instead of pinks, oranges and yellows. My insistence on the evils of aContinue reading “Pink!”

#NerdsLove

February is the month of love. Which often illicits a “Yuck” and an eye roll from me. Instead of my usual “down with love” attitude, I decided instead to share the things I love with my instapeeps. And the best part is that a bunch of you joined my challenge and shared the things you lovedContinue reading “#NerdsLove”

Nerd in the City Book Club is on Goodreads

Before Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out in theaters, I attempted to make my way through the old canon of Expanded Universe materials. But since I only started in January of last year, I didn’t get very far. There is just so much to get through and I am a slow reader. I likeContinue reading “Nerd in the City Book Club is on Goodreads”

The Redemption of Kylo Ren

The question on everyone’s mind lately… “Is Kylo Ren Redeemable?” or as my guest blogger Michael Burgett queried yesterday: “Will Kylo Ren Be Redeemed?” If that question is not on your mind, then you just haven’t seen Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens enough! Go watch it again and then we can talk! Reader,Continue reading “The Redemption of Kylo Ren”

Will Kylo Ren Be Redeemed?

Last week, an article was released on Retro Zap called “Is Kylo Ren Redeemable?” Finding it rather interesting, I posted it to my various social media sites encouraging my followers to read it. One of my favorite Twitter friends had a response and this is it: THERE ARE SPOILERS!! Of course there are spoilers. IfContinue reading “Will Kylo Ren Be Redeemed?”

The Only Girl in the World

When I was growing up…there was only one girl in the whole world that I wanted to be. I didn’t have a lot of choices. Leading ladies in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s were few and far between to say the least. One girl in Star Wars (Princess Leia.) One girl in Superman (Lois Lane.)Continue reading “The Only Girl in the World”
