*SPOILERS* My Last View on the Last Jedi

The latest addition to the Star Wars franchise is hands down the most divisive movie yet, and possibly the most divisive geek movie ever created. You either hated the prequels or thought they were “ok, necessary for the story”. You either LOVED Rogue One or fell asleep until the last half hour. You either love The Last Jedi or you hate it. After countless comments and debates online I decided to put all of my thoughts together in one place.

Level Up Your Character!

Welcome to 2017! I have a few friends doing these “Life Report” style blogs, where they have catchy titles, list their goals, and use the interwebz to keep them accountable. I would like to do that, and I have access to interwebz, and people! I don’t have a catchy title, so since I’ve been playing D&D lately I figured why not do this like I’m gaining XP and leveling up? That also fits with the book I’m reading, again, called the Nerdist Way! More on that later.

2016, Fin

2016 is over. For many, it was a tough year. I would have to say it was the hardest, most stressful year of my life. I’m going to leave all of the celebrity deaths, outbreaks of racism and violence, and the election to the “pro bloggers” and news outlets. I don’t want to solely focus on 2016 being a giant dumpster fire set off in my back yard with a fuse of dynamite strung to my roof. I’ve devoted the second half of this blog to the good things that have happened, so if you want that just skip to the end 🙂

Boldly Going

As I sit here, in my geek bar, drinking a Vulcan Red IPA from my Wesley Crusher pint, I reflect on what got me here. It’s the 50th Anniversary of the original Star Trek airing on TV and I have to say without that show my life would have been drastically different. Cliche, I know, but true.
