A New Host – CCC Ep. 004

Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, Wives? …Evil Sith Lords? all this and more! This is the second part of my conversation with my wife Christine as she recounts her experiences at Celebration Anaheim.  So come on in, and take a seat in our V.I.P. Lounge here at Cloud City Casino.                                            ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

This deal is getting worse all the time! Darth Christine returns to the VIP lounge to recount her Star Wars Celebration Anaheim experience. She demands that her episode be twice as long or it’s force chokes for all so we are splitting this into two parts. This is part 2 where Christine talks about the remaining days at Celebration as well as a trip to Disney Land and what she picked up on May The 4th!

So find a table, turn up the volume on your cyborg headband and get ready for an episode you won’t want to miss because everyone’s a winner here! At Cloud City Casino, we aim to please!

Star Wars Broadsaber: The Defense

(First of all: sorry.)

You may have heard, but there was this teaser trailer that came out a short while ago. It’s for The Force Awakens. Have you … okay I was going to say ‘have you felt it?’ but that would probably be too over done, not to mention it wouldn’t make any real sense as a question. How could you ‘feel’ a trailer? Unless you sensed through your ears the masses of Star Wars fans squeeing? (For my part, I do apologise to my dog.) I guess this side-track marks the end of my nonchalant opening. Anyhoo, have you seen it? Did you see the dude* with the lightsaber?

*No, not ‘The Dude’. As we now know, his name is Kylo Ren; though to me he will always be Mr. Kitty.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The Force Awakens
By Joseph Tavano

It’s time to wake up.

The Force has been sleeping, and you didn’t even know it. This entire time, all that’s happened has been under the guise of a dream. The energy field that binds the universe together is about to rise from its slumber, and what happens next is the contents of a new era in Star Wars.

Star-Wars-The-Force-Awakens

Wait—how can the Force sleep?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has the makings of the most evocative title this movie franchise has ever presented. There’s a tonal departure here that can’t be ignored. The early sci-fi, pulp-styled titles seen in the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy have shifted to something quite different. Where in the first six films, the titles have described actual characters or groups of characters, the seventh movie is decidedly taking its name from the present state of the universe and a natural phenomenon that will affect everyone.

Rhode Island Comic Con

2014 Rhode Island Comic Con

The last time I attended a comic book convention was 1993. It was in the large conference room of a Marriott on the outskirts of town, and there were roughly 20 vendors from all over New England selling hard-to-find action figures, bootleg concert cassettes, VHS tapes of first generation Star Trek episodes, and long-boxes of comics as far as the eye could see. This monthly slice of heaven was free to all who could find it and pretty much the greatest thing my 13 year-old eyes ever gazed upon. My Dad would drive my friend and me to the “comic con” and set me loose among the stacks and tables to burn through the $20 I earned washing refrigerated trucks from his friend’s Italian sausage business.
