Star Wars Weekends Parade

This past weekend I attended the final 2015 Disney’s Star Wars Weekends at Walt Disney World! It was a fantastic experience as usual, and I had a lot of fun experiencing Disney, going to panels with Star Wars guests, and hanging out with friends, family, and fellow fans, podcasters, and bloggers! At each Star Wars weekend, they have a parade in the mornings with a strong 501st and Rebel Legion presence, and the main Star Wars guests and hosts in attendance that weekend. This year I had the pleasure of watching the parade with my sister and brother-in-law who had never been to a Star Wars weekend, and of course with a number of fellow bloggers and podcasters in a location with a great view of the parade. Without further ado, here are photos from the parade!

Review: Rebel In The Ranks by Jason Fry

Review: Star Wars: Rebel In The Ranks by Jason Fry (or, The Swimsuit Model Edition)

I have a confession to make: I don’t generally have a high opinion of children’s or young adult books. This is silly for lots of reasons, but maybe now isn’t the right time to go into that. Actually, just briefly: it really doesn’t matter if something you like is high art or not. The only thing that truly matters is whether you like it. At least, this is what I tell myself as I watch the new Thunderbirds series.

I've never been more excited to see a lack of facial expressions in a TV show.

I’ve never been more excited to see a lack of facial expressions in a TV show.

All this is to say that, my expectations often are not very high – but once in a while, I read a children’s book that, maybe in big or small ways, undermines my preconceived notions and very pleasingly surpasses my expectations. This book, “Rebel in the Ranks,” written by Jason Fry, published by Egmont, and second in the Servants of the Empire series, does just that. Wow, that’s a long title! So without further ado, here’s the review. Hey, that rhymed! Aww, I ruined it.
