Mandalorian Maze


I, apparently like every other Star Wars fan, am fascinated by the Mandalorian and “the child.”

I was in a maze mood earlier too.

Help the Mandalorian find the child, or help the child find the Mandalorian.

Please excuse the drawings. I am wholly out of practice when it comes to things other than squiggly lines.

Print it. Solve it. Snap it. Post it. Tag me. (Or post it here in the comments.)

That’s @AiXeLsyD13 on most every social media platform.

If you’re so inclined, you could probably use a program on your phone, tablet, or ancient laptop or PC to solve & post.

I posted it on Instagram earlier.

My 6 year old saw me drawing and drew her own “Baby yoda.”

She is cooler than me.

So is it Baby yoda? Baby Yoda? Baby Not-Yoda? Baby Yoda-Clone?

Hit me up in the comments, then go read my last post.

All the #StarWars things.


I know I posted about this before, but a lot has changed since then.

  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars (3D CGI movie)

Forces of Destiny and Galaxy of Adventures are messing with me by jumping all over the place.Β  Does Blips belong there too?

Shut up about canon.

Light it up in the comments.Β  Maybe someday we’ll continue Star Wars movie nights.Β  Peep all my Star Wars related posts.

 

Some of our favorite #ElfOnTheShelf setups this year…


The kids were really into Jovie-Belle, their Elf on the Shelf, this year.Β  These are a few of my favorites. Post your favorites in the comments! (I have a bunch on Pinterest too… some appropriate, some not at all.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We didn’t get crazy creative every night, but the kids really made a big deal about finding her every morning. Maybe next year we’ll get a second elf and have some more fun.

β˜† Why are there animals and people and robots all together? β˜†


(Copied from a Facebook post. Β I forgot to post closer to Star Wars Day.)

Last night we were watching the end of Empire Strikes Back on TV when the kids & I got home from a trip to Target. Molly was full of questions, including but not limited to;

β˜† What happens if he gets hit by those pewers?
β˜† Why does he have a pewer?
What are those pewer things called?
β˜† Why are they blasters?
β˜† I called them pewers because I didn’t know what they were called. They sound like “pew pew.”
β˜† Why is C-3PO in a net?
β˜† Why does he have a lightsaber too?
β˜† Why is it blue?
β˜† Does Darth Vader have a pewer?
β˜† Why is a lightsaber more civilized?
β˜† Why did they freeze him?
β˜† Where are they taking him?
β˜† Why does he owe Jabba the Hutt Money?
β˜† Boba Fett is a good guy. Is Boba Fett a good guy?
β˜† How does he fight without his hand?
β˜† Why is Darth Vader a bad guy?
β˜† Why is Chewbacca choking that guy?
β˜† Why is R2-D2 smoking?
β˜† Why is C-3PO holding his leg?
β˜† Where is Chewbacca going?
β˜† Why are there animals and people and robots all together?
β˜† What is that place?
β˜† But what part of Cloud City are they in?
β˜† Why is there a big hole to fall down?
β˜† Where does it go?
β˜† Why is there a slide there?
β˜† It’s a good thing that bridge is there. Why is that bridge there?

Ian calls Darth Vader “Tai Tai” or “Kai Kai” and we have no idea why. He was also excited to see “Bobo Baba” (Boba Fett) and “Doot Doot” (R2-D2).

He weaseled his way back downstairs later to manage to catch some Ewok (“Weeewok”) action in Return of the Jedi. Ha ha.

Anchorhead vs. Galactic Empire


Anchorhead vs. Galactic Empire

Anchorhead vs. Galactic Empire

I have seen Galactic Empire blowing up lately, and I love it… but it makes me wonder what happened to Anchorhead, who was doing it first. Β (Yes, I know scores of metal versions of Star Wars songs are all over the Innerwebs, but these guys are the best.)

Here’s some side-by-side comparisons…

Anchorhead:

…and check out this incredible entire live show! Β Apparently all these cats ever left was one EP & a handful of performances. Β Their guitars have so many strings, it takes 12 parsecs for any non-force user to make their way across the fretboard.

I did download all I could form MySpace, but all I could get of some of the stuff was some snippets of songs. Β Their interpretations are proggy, masterful, eerie, and dark. Β I would love to get my hands on the EP.

Galactic Empire:

Obviously, these scruffy-lookingΒ Nerf HerdersΒ rock too. Β The costumes and video production are all-out. Β The metal seems happier if that’s even a thing. Β They used kickstarter to fund their eventual takeover of the galaxy. Β Galactic credits go far with the Empire. Β I’m anxious for their full-length album, too.

It looks like of the two, these guys are the only ones currently in existence.

Vote for Your Favorite:

I would love to see a fan mix of the movies using either of these guys to score the entire thing. Β I don’t think Disney would go for it, unless like Darth Lucas they realize they can make more money by selling the movies again to the same people that already own all possible formats & variations.

Bonus: Β Check out Sarlacc!

Star Wars Songs – Post your favorites in the comments! #MayThe4thBeWithYou!


Songs about Star Wars are almost as cool as the songs in Star Wars!Β Post your favorites in the comments!

 

( Β°) Pointless Arguing. |-o-| [-o-] |-o-|


One thing people seem to be good at is arguing over texts.Β  We can argue different points about the same information.Β  How many interpretations are there for the constitution?Β  And that’s just one language.Β  Hit up the Torah, Bible, or Koran that’s been translated into different languages a few times and it’s absolute chaos.Β  People seem to focus on minutiae instead of the big picture.

IΒ can easily imagine a post-apocalyptic dystopian future where the Star Wars films have become the basis for religion. People will subscribe to their own versions of the Jedi and Sith philosophies and have an overall high regard for the force. Some people will say it’s all fiction. Magicians will use levitation and spoon-bending illusions to “prove” that the force is real.

imageI can imagine sects breaking out of each group of trilogies, finding their own interpretations of the overall themes to be the only correct way to see things.

Some will say Anakin/Vader brought balance to the force. Some will say it was Luke. Some may focus on the new characters to come. Some cults will say you have to go to the dark side before you can be redeemed by the light and that is the only true path to Jedi salvation.

Some will argue that the original films unedited are the only true word. Some will argue that the standalone films and animated series are like the apocrypha, and can’t be true canon.

Monasteries will open and instead of vows of silence, they will talk like Yoda.

Books will be written trying to prove that the holiday special did in fact exist.

People will kill each other arguing over who shot first.

I think you now have a script for Idiocracy 2: Idiocracier.
