Biweekly Book Review: Catalyst

For a film as action-packed and war-movie-esque as Rogue One, it’s strange that the prequel novel would feel more like a prestige TV political thriller character study. Or maybe it makes perfect sense. Let’s take a look at Catalyst by James Luceno. *Spoilers Below* The Story It’s hard to give a straightforward summary of theContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Catalyst”

Biweekly Book Review: Dark Disciple

Just in time for the Siege of Mandalore arc, we move away from the golden years of the Prequel era and dive headfirst into the Clone Wars. First up, Dark Disciple by Christie Golden. *Spoilers Below* I will admit that despite watching the entirety of The Clone Wars twice through, I still feel out ofContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Dark Disciple”

Biweekly Book Review: Queen’s Shadow

I am a child of the ’90s. While I had seen the original Star Wars movies, it wasn’t until The Phantom Menace that I got to see a Star Wars story in theatres. It wasn’t until then that I became interested in reading a Star Wars book (my much loved and very battered copy ofContinue reading “Biweekly Book Review: Queen’s Shadow”

From Sand People to Doctors: An Examination of Middle Eastern Representation in the GFFA

*Reposted from SWRepMatters.com while the site undergoes maintenance* While watching the very first episode of The Mandalorian, a certain character caught my attention. “Baby Yoda”, you’re probably already thinking. And while I do love The Child with all my heart, I am actually referring to Dr. Pershing.  Played by Omid Abtahi, Dr. Pershing is anContinue reading “From Sand People to Doctors: An Examination of Middle Eastern Representation in the GFFA”

Obligatory Social Distancing Post

Turns out, you guys, I am not an introvert. “No shit”, said absolutely everyone who heard me say this over the last two weeks. I’m on day 19 (I had to check, I’m losing track) of being off work indefinitely, only going outside for a walk around the block or to the store . ToContinue reading “Obligatory Social Distancing Post”

Running 5K, one goal at a time

Almost 4 months ago, I jumped on here to lament how much I dislike running. A bold statement from someone who was…BARELY actually running anywhere. Every day I would leave the house with the intention of running/jogging/walking 5 kilometres, and I’d be lucky if I made it to 3 before deciding that it was “goodContinue reading “Running 5K, one goal at a time”

Adventures in Cosplay – Rey’s Battle Outfit

This is it folks. The big one. The reason I wanted to learn to sew in the first place. Ok no, seriously. As the title of this post suggests, this is about my attempts at building Rey’s Battle Outfit: My original intention was to have this done in time for Halloween 2019 (!), but IContinue reading “Adventures in Cosplay – Rey’s Battle Outfit”
