The Secret History of Star Wars by Michael KaminskiMy rating: 3 of 5 stars This was an interesting book to read. I am much more of a Star Trek person than a Star Wars person, but it was interesting to see how the sausage was made. The key question that came to mind as I was listening to all the revisionist history of this franchise is this: Who really owns (in an intellectual non-commercial
Best patch note ever!

STO is down for maintenance. Last night the First Contact event was hard to get into, which I assume is one of the things being looked at. I loved this patch note today: Resolved an issue where the Heavy Escort Railgun was healing enemies instead of damaging them. Healing your enemies would make for some really long battles - but this gives me a good idea for a console:
Nerf Herder (I don't wanna be no) - The Younglings
This song has been sticking around in my head these past few weeks (and I am not a huge Star Wars fan!)

OK...yes...I am still talking about Spain even though I've been back for two weeks now ;-)ID4: 2I am catching up on some things that I wanted to blog about while I was away - namely in-flight entertainment. Heading over to Europe is usually sleep-time on the plane, so I don't get to see a ton of movies, but coming back we're going back in time (so to speak) and that allows for some additional
Mandalorian's Revenge (SWTOR)
I am still working on the original content (haven't even gotten to expansions!), but the new chapter coming in a few days is looking interesting!
Still going on with SWTOR...
You know... When I started playing SWTOR, I didn't think the game would be this long! After playing Defiance for a bit (still playing, but not as much - maybe an hour or so per week), I thought that SWTOR would be light on story, and heavy on the end-game stuff (that requires people to subscribe for goodies). I am pretty happy to report that there is still a ton of story left in this game!I
May the fourth
I posted this last year - but it hasn't gotten old yet ;-) Tim Russ explains May the Fourth ;-)
How Star Wars: The force awakens should have ended
ROFL - "bring me my precious!!!" ;-)
Star Wars characters as Calvin & Hobbes
Something found on social media recently, Brian Kesinger has drawn up some of the new Star Wars characters in Calvin & Hobbes style :-) Pretty cool for those who love C&H :-)

Seems like this is one of the things that is popular this week on the internet: The Death Star Engineer giving a speech - or rather an explanation - of why his design was sound, and it was only because "magic space wizards" were involved that it blew up ;-) Pretty funny if you ask me :-)
The new star wars ain't bad!
While I am not a huge Star Wars fan, episode VII (The Force Awakens) seemed like an interesting film from the trailer so on new year's day Kristin and I were off to see it in IMAX 3D. Prior to this I had seem some of the previous films. From the original trilogy I'd give a new hope 3 stars, empire strikes back 4 stars, and return of the Jedi 3 stars. From the prequels the Phantom Menace
Star Trek Wars (mashup)
Just something making the rounds on facebook these days... Funny or enraging? ;-)
Star Wars a-cappella
Star Wars isn't my top sci-fi franchise, but this a-cappella of the Star Wars themes by Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, and the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" cast is pretty interesting :-)
SWOTR, no go....
Over the weekend I decided to download and try out Star Wars: The Old Republic, a free to play MMORPG. I am not a huge Star Wars fan, I neither love it, nor I hate it. I just like it. So, with Star Trek Online being a little flaky this weekend I decided to download SWOTR and try it out. I was looking forward to it, but I didn't get very far with it. As a matter of fact I didn't even get
