And now for that unexpected happenchance I mentioned in my last blog ...
Cue the chilling Emperor's theme ...
I had a fair amount of time to while away after parting with Jonathan and before meeting up with Caitlin to celebrate the end of her exams. The London sky looked like it wanted to unleash a torrent, but armed with my...Star Wars News & Info
Let's see ... where did I leave off last time? I was sharing my recollections from my delightful luncheon with Jonathan Wilkins, editor of Star Wars Insider. :-) Jonathan had mentioned that the Insider would be publishing an upcoming article about Star Wars' female fan base and the lack of female character toys. Have you seen Issue # 151...Star Wars News & Info
The lengths to which I will go for Star Wars and a blog. ;-)
I recently returned from a trip to the UK -- set up a long time ago "to collect" our youngest padawan, Caitlin (you met her in a couple of previous blogs I wrote for CWK), who spent her junior year at the London School of Economics and Political Science (a mouthful for any...Star Wars News & Info
The stage is set. "Interior. Death Star -- Hallway leading to main forward bay. Ben hurries along one of the tunnels leading to the hangar where the pirate ship waits. Just before he reaches the hangar, Darth Vader steps into view at the end of the tunnel, not ten feet away. Vader lights his saber. Ben also ignites his, and steps slowly...Star Wars News & Info
I just finished watching the May 6 episode of “The Goldbergs”. I know – a bit late to the party ... but better late than never. One of the storylines of the installment was the youngest son’s desire to see “Return of the Jedi” when it premiered in 1983. Adam blackmails his teenage sister, Erica, to accompany him, to wait in...Star Wars News & Info
That’s a pretty tall order.
I never really gave too much thought about those six little words in Yoda’s missive to Luke before the great Jedi Master took his last breath and became one with the Force. Other than it opened up a path for Luke, that is.
And then it happened ... back in 1989. I became a parent, repeating that...Star Wars News & Info
This is not the blog you're looking for.
Well, it is Melinda's Brew, but this is not the post I was planning for today. As I contemplated my two March posts when I flipped the calendar from February to March, I had very definite ideas about what topics I would be covering. I even wrote out the blogs -- long-hand. However, I put off...Star Wars News & Info
Say, did you catch the recent CWK podcast during which Dan and Cory talked to guest Dr. Andrea Letamendi about villains -- and why we have a penchant for them? (Well, not me, but I know some of you do. ;-) ) It was a great show, even incorporating characters from other franchises, and if you haven't listened yet, I'd encourage you to do...Star Wars News & Info
Have you ever gone for a leisurely stroll on a warm summer’s day (which sounds heavenly right about now!), and as you’re striding along, you let your mind wander as the sun kisses your skin? No earbuds relaying your favorite tunes to your ears. No ever-lengthening “to do” list encumbering your brainwaves. Just you, the birds and...Star Wars News & Info
I just got back from running a few errands,* and on this rare, sure-to-be-short-lived, 40-degree day when the piles of snow are experiencing a rapid melting – causing a good amount of wetness to be sprayed across my windshield – I couldn’t help but think about the topic that is foremost in my mind – Anakin Skywalker. Why would...
