Happy Star Wars Episode 009: The Gang's All Here!

Yay! Everyone is back for Star Wars: Episode IX! Except Carrie Fisher ;_; But she'll be back in BONUS FOOTAGE FORM!

Also, Mark Hamill and Billy Dee Williams were announced so those obvious secrets wouldn't be discussed for the next bajillion days until the movie comes out. A good move, IMO.

Did you all know that I have a LEGO Leia tattoo on my left leg? She's always with me.

Happy Star Wars Episode 008: R.I.P. Tallie Lintra, The Girl From Pippip 3 Who Stole My Heart

Rian Johnson is a murderer. While willy-nilly offing every single character that mattered, including everyone's favorite one-trick catchphrase fish admiral, a young A-Wing pilot from the farming planet of Pippip 3 was caught in the carnage. She was pure. She was young. She was destined for great things. But the Cosmic Force works in mysterious ways, and Tallisan "Tallie" Lintra was taken from us at just 22 years old. 

R.I.P. Tallie. You deserved better. But you went out with a bang.

Happy Star Wars Episode 007: #CLONEWARSSAVED

The Clone Wars, in my opinion, is one of the crowning achievements of the Star Wars franchise and one of the reasons Star Wars has stayed alive to this day. A thankful shoutout to The Clone Wars kids, why The Clone Wars is so important to Star Wars as a whole, and what we're getting when the show returns for twelve more episodes.

Happy Star Wars Episode 003: I Don't Think Star Wars Should "MARVEL-ize" (And That's A Good Thing!)

I'm not convinced that Star Wars needs to take any cues from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in order to continue the success of Star Wars. Let me explain my thoughts...

Happy Star Wars Episode 002: I Like Rose Tico (The Girl Who Likes Horses For Girls Who Like Horses)

Rose Tico is one of my favorite characters, if not only because she's not for me at all. Rose is one of the new representations of women that go overlooked in most conversations around her, and frankly, that's sad, because she's awesome. Maybe I can help you appreciate Rose a little bit, like I do, as I go on my own journey again.

Also, the cure for a toxic fan base and why Rose Tico IS actually part of Star Wars' GRAVEST mistake...
