I was thinking recently about the Death Star projects in Star Wars and an implication that we’ve all missed through the years. I’ve written about the Death Stars before, including which one was cooler (Death Star II by a mile), how Vader was supposed to be using the Death Star as his tool for Ascendancy […]Read more "Death Star Death Match"

But really only to a limited extent, because I’d written this out and had every intent of coming […]Read more "Darth Vader’s Poop"

Nearly everyone who has ever craved the power to do so with impunity has envied this command ability. However, […]Read more "Darth Vader: Never Meant for Promotion"
On the Words With Nerds episode Lando Calrissian and the Chelada of Penance, we discussed a thought that came to me like a flash while running one day in a snowstorm, listening to the soundtrack for The Empire Strikes Back. Always go #FullNerd. The Dilemma I started thinking about Lando and his choice to betray […]Read more "Lando Calrissian: Unfairly Judged"
