Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens Teaser Trailer #2

So, the new Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens teaser trailer is out and I’ve watched it a few times.

Just a few things I want to point out that I am excited for or noticed and want to talk about.

First up, I still LOVE the broad sword lightsaber. I have, as you can tell, loved the idea of an Excalibur Lightsaber, and this new lightsaber is definitely in that vein.

Next, I can not wait to see this new Sith in action! He is leading the new Troopers and it looks like a brand new Empire is rising up.

This brings me to the whole new symbol for the Empire. Why such a drastic change to it? Maybe because this is a completely brand new faction rising up, assuming the place of the Empire?

Then we have these chromed out Stormtrooper who looks like he is kicking ass and taking names. In fact, he looks to be taking the place that Vader filled. Cape, Hunting his enemies, And being the Ace Pilot. Maybe a clone of Vader?

Back to the beginning of the trailer, I don’t remember any major battles over Tattooine. So why are their so many wrecked ships there?

Who is the person with the new mechanical hand with R2?

Why is Han Solo and Chewie talking like they haven’t seen the Falcon in years? (I suspect its just fan service and a nod to how long its been since we have seen the Falcon ourselves.)

This trailer has me excited for the future of Star Wars, and this movie looks amazing so far, as I figured it would, and this is just with us having two teaser trailers.

Man its good to be a Geek.


Selena Drake: Award winning Poet, Artist, Author and Philanthropist

My friend, Selena I. R. Drake, is a passionate writer who loves her projects like children. She is unable to contain the stories within herself and has a near obsessive compulsion to write them until they are completely on paper and made into a cohesive story for others to enjoy.

I met her on Facebook and we became fast friends, our love of creating, writing and building entire worlds made us a good match for friendship.

I’ve read one of her books, and I enjoyed it thoroughly, and I cannot wait to read her first Case of the AEON Files.

She needs the help of the public at large though. She needs to raise funds to raise awareness of her books and to win over other fans.

This is where you come in, and this blog post. I spoke with her and she graciously agreed to allow me to write a post and try to get people over to her sites and generate some interest.

If you like what you see, then you can donate to her cause and get some awesome rewards in the process.

The Expanded Universe Changes

When Disney bought Lucasfilm, I was excited. This meant new life was being breathed into Star Wars, a bright new future was arising, and I couldn’t wait.

Then came the decision to disregard the EU and replace it with new Canon sources that would come from Disney.

I was heartbroken. How could something I have been reading since I was a boy be disregarded so easily. Then, I began to start thinking. This is not so bad after all. They created the Legends banner so the EU can remain within Star Wars and continue to be a source for the Canonical films and other properties.

I made up my mind to view it under the Multiverse Theory, as I do many things. Star Wars Legends is but one possible path Star Wars could have taken. The new path diverges from Return of the Jedi and into The Force Awakens. Thus creating a new Universe.

I choose to remain positive with what is coming. As a fan, I love what happens and what we are given, even when it turns out to be terrible.

Weapon Brown: The Comics are all grown up.

So, Weapon Brown is interesting. I love the Peanuts comics and books. I own a bunch of them from childhood and I have read them many many times. I’ve seen nearly all the animated specials. So, I’m a big fan of The Peanuts Gang and Charlie Brown. As a kid, I always thought that My dogs or cats were like Snoopy or Garfield. That they could talk to each other, and they did stuff like fight the Red Baron, or games similar to what we did as kids.

I’ve seen fan art of different child hood comics, or shows that were updated and shown in a Zombie Apocalypse, or after Armageddon. Or as Monster Hunters. It’s always cool to see the things I grew up with that are updated into something more adult.

I recommend checking this out, seeing if it interests you. It’s got more than just Charlie Brown and the Peanuts Gang in it, too, which really appeals to me making it a connected newspaper/funny pages comics universe.

I’d love to see it be made into an animated film, too. Maybe by HBO. I think they could handle a project like this and give it a treatment like they did Spawn.

Knights, Kings and the Round Table.

I’m still creating the list of Members for the Round Table, but I’ve no clue who should be in the spot of King in Geekdom. Should it be an Author? A Director? A Comic Creator?

Stephen King?
Jim Butcher?
Larry Correia?
J.K. Rowling? (She’d be a Queen, but you get the jist.)
George Lucas?
Steven Spielberg?
Stan Lee?
Bob Kane?
Jack Kirby?

They all deserve a place, and so do MANY more. Big decision.
