I love the TV show The Clone Wars. I’m sure that comes as no surprise to anyone. However, it goes beyond the obligatory Star Wars fandom and mind-set. Heck, I know people who weren’t ever die–hard Star Wars fans who have nonetheless picked up on the show because it’s got real quality writing behind it. […]Read more "Why I Love The Clone Wars"
The migration continues! Below is a completely tongue-in-cheek poem I wrote on the original kessel korner, dedicated to every fanboy’s slightly–disturbing fixation, Darth Maul.

I’m going to do more than the whining haters have done for the last decade plus, and that’s give […]Read more "My Honest Reviews of the Star Wars Films: Episode I: The Phantom Menace"
Welcome to the review of the third book in the Twilight series, Eclipse. The plot thickens, but not really. Why The Hell Is It Called ‘Eclipse’ Anyway? Really, I got the symbolism of the first two titles. I’m lost on this one. I might be able to stretch and say it’s because Bella’s love eclipses […]Read more "The Vampire Blogs: Episode IV: A New Low"
