Well, the best laid plans of mice and men…amiright? The day I decided to start my brand new Boot Camp series was the day that we found out our friend Wally had died. After attempting to keep on keeping on despite the mounting grief washing through my soul, I finally came to the point whereContinue reading “Star Wars Boot Camp Redo”

I Know the Power of the Dark Side

I gotta tell you, after the news of not one, but three shootings in the last 2 months, as well as (and more emotionally jarring for me) the murder of a friend, I understand the power of the Dark Side. I understand the temptation to lean into that power and the strength that comes fromContinue reading “I Know the Power of the Dark Side”

Star Wars Boot Camp

Well, once again I’m standing at the start of a workout series. The last one was very successful. I felt good, I felt fit and then life interjected and while I haven’t completely regressed, I have not been at the level of fitness I’d like to be. The kind of level that energizes me. TheContinue reading “Star Wars Boot Camp”

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!)

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.

Star Wars Rewatch (Episode I)

I’m not on a mission to convince you that the prequels are worth watching. I think that argument is ridiculous. We all have our feelings and opinions on the matter. I personally like them. They are deeply entrenched in nostalgia from my high school and early college years and yes…there are bad patches, but whenContinue reading “Star Wars Rewatch (Episode I)”
