Recently on The Twitter, a conversation along these lines came up again. Perhaps I jumped in because I was in the process of migrating a lot of these into draft format; I was up late doing so when I saw something that I knew to be incorrect regarding how much the prequels were supposedly shaped […]Read More The EU Is Not Authoritative (and Flashback Blog: It’s Likely That Mr. Lucas Doesn’t Know)
They’re finally shutting down the old blogs.starwars.com servers, so I’m starting one last big migration of material so that it isn’t lost forever. This one is a personal favorite, dealing with the inability of fanboys (and girls) to “just let go” of popular/favorite characters. It was received both well and poorly depending on different people […]Read More Flashback Blog: Elvis Dead: Is Elvis Alive?
The great migration of the blogs from the original kessel korner continues! (I almost have spelled continue with a “k” but…yeah…no. Krusty taught me that lesson.) In this particular gem, I forayed into analyzing only the last moments from the films, and what they were telling us. It’s interesting to flip through these things and […]Read More Flashback Blog: It’s all About the Final Shot
Yep. I’m still in the process of reclaiming my old blogs from their old origin points to protect them from being locked away from me for good. I’m also very tired and going to sleep pretty much immediately after I post this. This time, I decided to nab another one that explores the nature of […]Read More Flashback Blog: I Must Obey My Master
It’s Sunday, I’m tired, I’m working from home to prep for a skirmish about a site at work (I will win) and I’ve got about 6 blogs in progress but not ready for prime-time. So I dug one out of the old Star Wars blog archive from the original kessel korner. I’m on a mission […]Read More Flashback Blog: Mace-ing with the Dark Side
During my review of Return of the Jedi, I made passing reference to the fact that I had blogged about the addition of Hayden Christensen as the ghost of Anakin Skywalker at the end. Partially because I’m still unsure when http://www.starwars.com will wise up and clean out their servers, it motivated me to pick up […]Read More Flashback Blog: Blue Ghosts and You
This post was originally published at blogs.starwars.com/kesseljunkie on August 8, 2006. Working on another blog that’ll be coming out soon (and which I didn’t have time to work on this weekend), I was reminded of it because I started thinking about Superman. Specifically, I started thinking about Superman Returns and how I feel like I […]Read More Flashback Blog: Superman v. Anakin
I started this reincarnation of ‘kessel korner’ with a revival of one of its original posts from its days at blogs.starwars.com/kesseljunkie. This is a feature that I’d like to keep going because every so often I pull back on a post slated to auto-publish so I can re-work it a little bit. That happened for the one scheduled today, so enjoy this. It’s nerdy on a scale that almost makes me blush. Almost.Read More Flashback Blog: Star Wars Politics and You
