Re: "The Mandalorian" Live-Action Series (2019)

I haven't seen much of The Mandalorian. Ads, brief clips, some concept art circulating on the web. And who could escape the revoltingly cute Yodaling? And I keep thinking one thing: Lone Wolf and Cub But I don't think I see any Japanese people. Is this some of that "cultural appropriation" stuff I h...

Re: Star Wars Episode IX (SPOILERS ALLOWED)

The final trailer. Didn't do anything to me. https://youtu.be/nlnrOr2STaE I wasn't particularly moved by it any which way, either. What looked like Star Destroyers--or a Star Destroyer--rising out of the water was a millisecond of interest, until I realized that, 1) this is a JJ Abrams flick, and 2...

Re: Fan Fiction: Recursion of the Force

Interesting... I'll need to digest it a bit more. Okay, seven months....more or less... ;) I know it was weird, but I didn't think it was quite that weird. Looking back on it I might make a change or two for clarity's sake, but...I'm still pretty satisfied with it, given what I had invested in it.

The History in English Words by Owen Barfield. I've heard about that one! Would you recommend it? Yes, I think I would. It was not an enjoyable read. The style is a tad archaic, if I may engage in a little hyperbole. For instance, the paragraphs that span pages strike one as just a little too long....

Let's see... Last night I watched episode 7 (I think), of Project Blue Book , "The Scoutmaster." (Just double-checked: It was #7.) Via the old DVR. Meh. Kinda weird, and I nodded off during the final ten minutes. So far, it hasn't been that impressive. But, compared to a lot of other things on the o...

Re: Star Trek - From TOS to Discovery and Beyond

But, then, they never were too worried about that sort of thing in Trek. During the original run there were a great many inconsistencies, and they only had one program to keep track of, which they were making up as they went along. True. And I'll admit, its not a huge issue for me. I have nitpicker...
