Too Excited for Star Wars

My reaction when I saw the new Star Wars trailer


As a result of seeing the trailer I have a few questions & thoughts that I am sure many others have thought of and may have answered already.

My Observations:

  1. We know that there is black man playing as one of the storm troopers and since we know from the prequel trilogy that the clone troopers were originally clones that weren’t black.
  2. I swear I heard the same spy droid you hear in Star Wars V while they gang was on Hoth.
  3. I don’t think that droid is attached to a soccer ball. Although that would be really cool.
  4. Those new guns look awesome!
  5. That’s a badass lightsaber.
  6. The Millennium Falcon is back!


Questions as a Result of My Observations

  1. -What is the lifespan of a clone? If they are able to survive all those battles?
  2. When did that alien race stop producing those clones?
  3. How long has The Empire been hiring people to be clone troopers?
  4. Is the Empire still in control?
  5. If so, who is in charge?
  6. Why is that Cloontrooper freaking out and looking panicked?
  7. Who is after him?
  8. Why is that droid chilling on a soccer ball?
  9. Who are those group of stormtroopers after?
  10. Will those new guns help them have better aim?
  11. Who is that girl?
  12. Is she related to Luke Skywalker? (Please let this be so!)
  13. Is she on Tattoine?
  14. If not what planet is she on?
  15. Who is in the X-Wings?
  16. Who are the pilots in the X-wings fighting?
  17. Who are they about to fight?
  18. Is it the empire?
  19. Is that the  new Sith?
  20. What’s his/her name?
  21. His history?
  22. Is Han Solo piloting it in that moment?
  23. If not, who?

I don’t know what to expect from this movie, but I would love to hear theories about it.

What did you think of the trailer? What are your thoughts?

My Thoughts on “Spoilers”

im gonna troll you so hard

I may tick people off when it comes to this, but I don’t really care. I am kind of irritated.

I know that when a new episode of my favorite TV Show, a new book to my favorite series, or a sequel to a movie I enjoyed has come out. I know there will be this crazy thing that will pop up on the internet called spoilers.

I also know that if I start getting into a series that has been around for a while there will be lots of fansites on the internet that could possibly spoil it for me. As a result I don’t go looking for it till I have caught up. I am okay with that.

And if a series is older than 10 years I shouldn’t have to post spoilers in the title. I shouldn’t have to post spoilers in the article at all.

But apparently on reddit you have to .

Even if the series is 16 years old….

Really come on now.

When I am getting into a series and I know it is old; I don’t go looking online. If I do, I know I am doing it at my own risk. If I am just getting into a series that is brand new, if a new episode has come, out and I haven’t seen it yet; I will avoid those websites in the meantime until I have seen the episode. It is a lot easier to do than you think.

I have missed a lot concerning Once Upon A Time lately. Due to my facebook feed all I know is that the Wicked Witch is involved. That is it. I don’t know anything about it.

When I have missed new episodes from Doctor Who, Once Upon A Time, Sleep Hollow, Game of Thrones, etc. you know what I do? I do this amazing thing called don’t look and don’t search for it. I don’t go looking for things on tumblr, pinterest, etc. If something pops up while I’m on there I do this amazing thing where I ignore it. I don’t read it, I just click away from it.

I know crazy right.

Now when I am talking among friends in person I have more discretion because well even if they cover their ears there is not much they can do about it. Instead I talk privately about with the friends who are in the know or I ask if that person cares if I spoil it for them.

Most of them don’t, a few do. It’s cool.

What happens if what happened on the internet happened in the real world, where people actually interact face to face.

I am in a bookstore or cafe talking about a new episode with friends. It is just a conversation between the two of us. All of a sudden someone comes up to me and says ‘you just spoiled that episode for me!’ You should have said spoilers!’ ‘I wasn’t talking to you though and you didn’t have to listen in’, I say. ‘Still though you can’t go around talking about it and spoiling for everyone,’ says whiny fan(girl/boy).

See how ridiculous that is?

In all honestly though I don’t know what is so hard about not looking for information related to your fandom. My father does it all the time. I do it all the time, and so does my mother. We are all Geeks. If they sees any article related to TV Shows and yes even movies that they are interested in, they will do this crazy thing where they ignores it and they don’t read and or watch youtube videos online, or look up anything related, unless they don’t care. Which sometimes they don’t.

I do the exact same thing. I don’t fanboy/fangirl rage at someone for spoiling something, especially since, I went looking at the topic in relation to said fandom in the first place. I can understand it may be a little more “difficult” when you are subscribed and or following that person. Usually the titles though are a pretty good giveaway of what they are talking about. I follow so many geek related sites and I have yet to have the entire episode of Game of Thrones spoiled for me. It has only happened once. Once!

Big example. I have’t seen the current season of Game of Thrones. I accidentally saw something about the purple wedding and I only know that…..



You have been warned


Are you sure you want to go further



Fine I am not responsible….





Honestly that shouldn’t be a surprise to:

  • those who have read the books
  • those who have watched the season so far
  • those who know that George R.R. Martin loves killing people more so than Moffat.
    (Imagine if they did an episode together…)

OH the Horrors!

I am not against warning people about spoiler related things, but there is a limit. Here is what I will post spoilers on…

I will still post spoilers on things that are:

  • The episode just aired
  • New books in a series that just came out
  • Movie sequel just came out
  • you get the idea….

But I won’t post spoilers on:

  • Movies (especially if the movie is based on a book- sorry I am no sorry- that is not happening)
  • Movies that have been in existence for more than a year
  • Book series that have been out longer than a year
  • New Bestselling Books (have to be about a year old)
  • TV Shows that are over in general
  • TV Shows Season that are over (like once the 4th Season of Game of Thrones is over- all bets are off)
  • Games- this just won’t happen

That is my stance because frankly if I have to put a spoiler alert on every single thing I am posting, it will take way too much time. And that is a little overkill.

So be warned anytime you see anything fandom related on my page. You have been warned.




Only the Dark Side Works in Absolutes


Recently I got into a discussion online and of course it dealt with politics. What did the article have to deal with? It had to deal with whether or not President Obama was born in this country. Even though I am against his policies, I am tired about hearing this issue discussed. I commented on the article basically saying no matter what happens, whatever the truth it will be found out eventually. I never said I believed in one side or the other.

There are bigger issues to focus on, like the economy and our national security.

Well I got some surprising reactions from people on facebook who never talk to me. I blocked out the individuals picture and name involved of course.

Absolutes 1

Absolutes 2


I can understand with my first comment they could believe I thought there was some whole conspiracy (which by the way I love conspiracy theories). I do agree also that the title is misleading (every news source no matter what side has done this at one point) However, I was disheartened as the discussion went on. Right away the term hardcore conservative propaganda is used which just made me think , ‘oh great it is going to be “are you with us or against us” kind of deal’. I ignored that in the beginning, but in the end I try to make a point by saying that people can go and respond to them right back at them that they are influenced by a media which has a heavy liberal slant. Propaganda exists on both sides, ignoring that is like ignoring the fact that there are corrupt politicians in both parties.

Instead of continuing the discussion, the individual says there is no point in having this discussion. While the other declines to respond.

What? Really? Come on now.

Granted my phrasing may be confusing, but it was also at 1 in the morning and I have been writing lots of papers within the past 2 weeks. So I am starting to burn out a little.

To sum up what I was trying to say:

  • History will prove who was right in the end.
  • It may take a long time for that to happen.
  • It may never happen.
  • There will be people who believe that Obama was US born.
  • There will be people who will change their minds on whether or not he was US born.
  • Others will never change their minds.
  • We will learn more about President Obama’s private life in at least 30-50 years.
  • It will probably take longer because we usually don’t learn a lot about our presidents full history until they are dead usually.
  • Even then we will never know their full history.
  • Every president has secrets (everyone has secrets so it should be no surprise if a president has one or two).
  • Both sides have an agenda, therefore both sides create propaganda to fulfill their agenda.
  • Politicians have an agenda.
  • Just because I am not condemning them (birthers in this case), doesn’t mean I condemn you( those that are against birthers).

Just because I am not condemning these people, doesn’t mean I am with/for them. I am just trying to think constructively about it. I prefer and want to hear both sides of any issue. Even conspiracy theories. I find them fascinating/ interesting regardless if they are true or not.

I question everything, I observe, and I listen; it was just how I was raised. I try not to take anything at face value.

In my opinion, rarely is anything black and white. With this whole conversation if felt very much as though I was being questioned as to whether or not I was with the birthers or if I was against them. I’m just here on the matter, I am more over this topic at this point.  For either way, whatever the case may be, we the human race will eventually learn whatever the truth is. Seemed very absolute to me how this conversation felt and than I remembered….

Only the dark side deals in absolutes (I know it is supposed to be siths, but my mind paraphrased it).

It is really sad how politics is very much, you are either with me or against me mentality. If you believe aspect “A” than you must believe in aspect “B” as well, therefore you are against me because I don’t agree with either aspects.  That is generally how you are portrayed online, on tv, movies, etc. so it must be true!

If you believe in abortion, you must hate Christians. If you don’t believe in abortion, you must hate women. If you are for a strict illegal immigration policy, you must hate immigrants. If you believe we should go to war, you must love war. If you don’t believe in this war, you hate our troops.  If you believe in business, you must hate people.  If you are republican you must believe in every single thing that the republican party believe. If you are democrat, you must believe every singe thing the democrat part believes.

On and on and on it goes. When will it end? Nobody knows.

Aren’t these absolutes kind of ridiculous. I am not saying there aren’t people who aren’t like this. Stereotypes exist because there are people out there that do fit the stereotype.  At the same time though, there are people out there who don’t fit the stereotype.

I know shocking right?

Below I have just wanted to continue to show stereotyping at its finest.

R=Republican /// D= Democrat

R- “You must be a liberal nutcase”

L-“Well you are an uncompassionate conservative”


R-“Man hater”

L- “Misogynist Pig.”


R- “You hate anyone that is Christian:

L- “You hate anyone that isn’t Christian.”


R- “I don’t agree with Obama on this issue.”

L- “You are just saying that because you are a republican and a racist!”

R- ” I am against his policies. Stop trying to make this about race. ”

L- “I’m just pointing out the truth, which the truth is you are a racist.


R- “We should be able to drill for oil.”

L- “No we should only use renewable resources. You will destroy the plant.”

R- “You want us to not be able to rely on ourselves. I want us to be independent”

L- “I want to save the planet. You want to abuse it.”


L- “Fox News is biased and promotes hate.”

R- ” No, it is fair and balanced. A majority of News media has a liberal bias and hates conservatives.”

L- “No, the other news stations give the facts, especially NPR. Only Fox news is bias. That and Rush Limbaugh.”


R- “Hillary would be a terrible president.”

L- “you are saying that because you are sexist.”

R- “No, she has no real political experience, besides being married to Bill Clinton.”

L- ” She has had tons of experience. Sexist!”


R- “You are close minded and have been brainwashed by the media.”

L- ” I think you are the one that is close minded and has been brainwashed by the media.”

R- “You don’t listen to the facts.”

L- “You don’t listen to the facts.”


It seems to never end. Kind of annoying isn’t it.
