Well, apparently one does.
I don’t know if anyone else saw this coming, but I was completely blindsided.
Disney just bought Lucasfilm, including the rights to all their films – and most importantly, Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
Apparently, due to some rights issues with Paramount, Indy is just going to retire. That’s sad, but possibly for the best.
On the other hand, Disney has already announced that they are going to release Star . . . → Read More: Star Wars VII, VIII, IX… and beyond?!
Lee posted his “Nerd badge” score recently. He failed to get it, and rightly so. Not because of any lack of nerd-dom on his part, but because of the idiocy of the test. Some guy posted a list ofÂ Twenty Things Every Sci-Fi Nerd Should Own Physically and EmotionallyÂ and it’s been making the rounds in the blogosphere recently. If you have or love 12 of the 20 things he listed, you “pass” and can . . . → Read More: The Nerd Badge is invalidly valid, therefore I get one
Maybe I should have called this series of posts “Force Fed”.
While that’s not exactly the truth about how it went down, that title does reflect a bit of how I feel now that we’ve completed watching Return of the Jedi, and thus the original trilogy.
I definitely didn’t force my kids to watch these movies. They’ve been asking (and at times whining) to see them. I do think that I didn’t hold out as . . . → Read More: Star Wars Conundrum: Original Trilogy Reflection
I wrote before about the problem I have with showing my daughters the Star Wars series (well, some of them). It’s difficult to decide what order to show them which versions of the films, and how quickly.
I think I’ve got it figured out.
We’ve now seen A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back a couple of times. There is some question in their minds as to whether Vader was being truthful when he said . . . → Read More: Star Wars Conundrum: Sorted
I’ve got a problem. There are multiple layers to this thing. And it’s all George Lucas’ fault.
Well, maybe I have some part to play in it as well. But it’s mostly Lucas.
See, I have two young kids. And I want to show them Star Wars. That’s my contribution to this. There are parts of this series that are just too mature for my kids at this age. I accept that, and recognize that . . . → Read More: The Star Wars Conundrum
Well, the 15,000th version of Star Wars is coming out on Blu-ray soon.
I’ll give Lucas a lot of credit. The man is a genius at marketing. He must have a huge storehouse of stuff that he can release for each new version of the movies he puts out.
This time the thing that is getting me to consider buying the Blu-ray is this deleted scenes trailer:
I foolishly thought that the DVD releases . . . → Read More: Star Wars… they did it again!
This is the kind of stuff that keeps sucking me back into the world of Star Wars gaming. I LOVE this stuff.
I have no idea how the actual game experience will be for “The Old Republic” – all I know is that these cinematics look Awesome, with a capital “AWE”. There are three now, that I’m aware of. “Deceived”, “Hope”, and “Return”.
Here’s everything I know about the story these trailers introduce:

… and then nothing but disappointment. That pretty much describes this podcast. Really there is some interesting stuff discussed somewhere in there, but to get to it, you have to listen to me talking. Sorry about that, but it is the way of things.
On the upside, you do get to hear my wife talking about this stuff as well, so you got that going for you. Which is nice.
Of course throughout the entire . . . → Read More: Grand opening…
In the 7 day challenge, today’s topic is: Answer one question I think people visiting my blog may have.
Let’s be honest: I have no idea what question you guys/gals may have. Y’all need to speak up more for me to discern that.
So that leaves me with a choice – I can come up with some completely self-serving question like “what’s the best post you’ve written?” or I can make up something that allows . . . → Read More: How geeky are you, really? – 7 day challenge
