Lords of the Sith

Lords of the SithThe book Lords of the Sith is the BEST Star Wars book I have ever read. (Okay it is the first Star Wars book I have ever read, but it makes me wonder why haven’t I read more before.)

I can thank the folks over at TheMarySue.com for pointing it and a bunch of other cool stuff out to me. So, hey, Thanks!

Normally, I hate books that bounce between characters every other chapter, but in this one I didn’t mind it so much. Except for that one time when I had to actually back up and re-read some things because I got lost.

This has a compelling story, that I believe it is set between the Clone Wars and the new Rebels series (which I recently watched and got so hooked on — I didn’t want to get wrapped up in it). Even though from the beginning we know the rebels (or in this case the Ryloth freedom fighters as there is no rebellion as of yet) are going to fail. Their goal in the book is to hunt down and kill Darth Vader and the Emperor (yeah, we all know who actually does do that and it isn’t a bunch of Twi’leks. But boy was I really starting to root for them and hope they could actually pull it off.

Like I said you wind up having to keep several stories straight, Vader & the Emperor, Cham and his Twi’lek rebels, Moff Mors (the Imperial in charge of Ryloth and the first LGBQT character in the Star Wars cannon) and Belkor (The Imperial traitor). So you can see why I got lost for a bit.

One of my favorite 80s bands is out touring this summer. If you can catch The Go-Go’s in a town near you do it (tour is actually half over). Saw them last year and I am just as excited to see them this year! Last year they were with the Psychedelic Furs this year they […]

I have been soup nazi-ed by Mimoco. It started out because I asked for the difference from the sale price I paid on Friday for the advertised sale price on Monday, which was a thirteen dollar difference in the item I was getting. They refused to give me the price difference and quoting some little […]

Elysium: Entertainment or Pure Propaganda? (via http://worldnewscurator.com) Hollywood is often accused of being part of a ‘liberal media elite’, using its considerable power to promote a liberal political agenda. The idea of a liberal media bias is easy to understand – even if you don’t agree with it – when you’…
