The Force Is With All Of Us

Posted by on April 14th, 2017, under NOTEBOOK

A long time ago, well, for the past 40 years, we began a journey and watched as good tangled with evil in a galaxy far, far away. Little did we know, these battles would take on new meaning, even today, as Star Wars becomes a reflection and examination for both world events and important cultural […]

May the Make-Believe Be With You, Always

Posted by on January 3rd, 2017, under SNAPSHOTS

What do a broomstick, a flashlight and a cardboard wrapping paper tube have in common? Some of you will guess immediately: a lightsaber. In the case of the cardboard tube, it’s a very short-lived lightsaber, but in the right hands, it’s a magnificent Jedi weapon while it lasts. Whether it’s vwoomping and shzzzorping like a […]

The Best Carrie Fisher Interview

Posted by on December 27th, 2016, under NOTEBOOK

I didn’t really know what to post today. I’m pretty stunned by the news that Carrie Fisher has passed away despite early reports of her improvement. In certain respects, I shouldn’t necessarily be entirely surprised. She liked to joke around a lot about her health, her addictions, the pitfalls she’d faced — and it just […]

Grandpa Vader & Kylo, A Christmas Story

Posted by on December 22nd, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

This is amaaaaaazing. Even if you’re not a stark raving Star Wars fan like me, you’ll still appreciate a lot of the relatabale moments shown here, when grandparents look after their grandkid. Sure, regular grandparents might not be spoiling your kid quite like Santa Vader, and when they break your rules, it’s necessarily your “no […]

Twas The Night Before Rogue One

Posted by on December 15th, 2016, under NOTEBOOK

Twas The Night Before Rogue One Twas the night before Rogue One and all through my shack, Not a wampa was stirring not even a sarlacc. The lightsabers were hung by the moisture vaporator with care, In hopes that the Deathstar plans soon would be here. The fans were nestled all snug in their beds, […]

BB-8 Takes Manhattan

Posted by on December 7th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

There’s nothing my nerd-heart loves more than seeing fantasy and fiction come to life in… real life. It’s what our imaginations were made for. All our play as kids, every time we imagined something fantastic happening to us — those moments were our minds calling out for something magic in our everyday. Star Wars is […]

The Rogue Ones

Posted by on November 11th, 2016, under NOTEBOOK

Thank you to Verizon for giving me the opportunity to geek out over Star Wars. Though this is a paid partnership, I would’ve been writing about it regardless because that’s just how big of a nerd I am. I am seriously just this excited about it. If you’re a Star Wars fan like me, you’ve […]

​First Mars, Then a Galaxy Far Far Away

Posted by on September 29th, 2016, under "MY KID JUST SAID...", SNAPSHOTS

​I’d been seeing little bits and pieces about Elon Musk’s announcement at the International Astronautical Congress (see article/video) to put plans into hyperdrive for Mars manned missions and even colonization. With the goal of getting us blasted off in less than a decade, he stated, “I really have no other purpose than to make [human] […]

10/10 Would Play: STAR KART!

Posted by on September 6th, 2016, under VIDEOTAPE

I enjoy playing video games when time allows. I’ve just started playing some co-op with my almost seven-year-old and we have a blast making jokes, one-upping each other, and celebrating victories together. We love Star Wars and Mario Kart. So, believe me when I say this video was just THE BEST. Really cool stuff by […]

Quite Simply The Best Star Wars Commercial

Posted by on September 2nd, 2016, under NOTEBOOK

Listen, I don’t like watching bad commercials. They’ve become the thing we skip, if we aren’t streaming or internetting all the time. They make you want to shoot your television. Can you remember your favorite commercials (not from the BIG FOOTBALL GAME every year)? Maybe you’ll remember one or two at the most. This is, […]
