Dating and Star Wars

It was a blind date…plain and simple. I walked into it with the lowest of expectations, because experience had taught me to be cautious and common sense had taught me to be sensible. I wasn’t bitter or jaded about the endeavor…not yet, at least. Just realistic, something I try very hard not to be onContinue reading “Dating and Star Wars”

A Thought on Alderaan

I want to take a moment and share a couple thoughts I’ve been having about the fateful planet of Alderaan. When we are first introduced to Alderaan (in Episode IV: A New Hope) it is the home world of the one and only Princess Leia. Which in and of itself is enough of a reasonContinue reading “A Thought on Alderaan”

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”

Now What Do You Do?

If you haven’t yet seen Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, then I’d venture to say it’s only a matter of time till you do. The biggest pop culture event of all time…even the Muggles want to be a part of this. There’s a lot of new people discovering the wonderful world of StarContinue reading “Now What Do You Do?”

God Rest Ye, Merry Stormtroopers

5 years ago I wrote some nerdy Christmas Carols for my family… I always dreamed of recording them one day and this fall while I was out in California, a reunion with an old friend started me down the path to seeing that dream realized. Thanks to Kevin Porter of Flash Grove Music for interpretingContinue reading “God Rest Ye, Merry Stormtroopers”

Star Wars Re-Watch (Episode IV)

Obviously the Force is strongest with the original trilogy. No one in their right mind would try to argue otherwise. So here we go… Episode IV: -I have associated the 20th Century Fox fanfare with Star Wars for as long as I can remember. I was always disappointed when I heard it and Star WarsContinue reading “Star Wars Re-Watch (Episode IV)”

Sci-Fi Debate Club

If you’ve seen this week’s episode of my web series, then you know about my Sci-Fi Debate Club. If you missed it, take a look… We didn’t plan it. We didn’t mean for it to happen. But when two of more nerds are gathered together, nerdy…geeky…dorky debates are bound to ensue! And yes… they canContinue reading “Sci-Fi Debate Club”

8 Months Till Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

Yes, the waiting is getting harder and harder. Especially with the new trailer out this week. Which, if you haven’t seen yet, must mean you are living in a cave on a desert planet far, far away. For those of us who aren’t a crazy, old man, take another look: Yeah, so patience isn’t exactlyContinue reading “8 Months Till Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens”

Dreaming of SW Celebration

Sadly I am not in Anaheim, California right this very minute. I am not soaking up the California sun and preparing for an epic weekend of Star Wars culture. That is what I’m not doing. What I am doing is dreaming of the panels I’ll be missing. And reading my Star Wars EU novels andContinue reading “Dreaming of SW Celebration”
