• Star Wars Mysteries: Getting to the Bottom of Max Rebo

      Not since “Lapti Nek” will Max Rebo fans have their worlds rocked this hard. A few months back, ace illustrator Brandon Bird reached out to me via the magic of the Internet to back up a certain contention regarding Max Rebo, concerning something most people don’t know about the elephantine keyboardist.

        They showed this at Comic-Con, and I was really surprised to see a concept so similar to Sebulba used back then. The reality is that the compromises were too much, but also that the director of the scene didn't rehearse the scene properly because it's obvious some of this language was lost on the puppeteer.

      So his name isn't really Han Solo...

      I didn't see a thread for the new Han Solo movie, and I couldn't find a post about this.

      Oh, yeah, it is acting squirrelly, I'll have it looked into.

      I liked the "Zero Hour" two part season finale. I'm glad that the show didn't get rid of Thrawn, who is such a strong character, the way that

      Timothy Zahn must've LOVED these two: Interdictor Cruisers, Thrawn in ground battle gear, his plans would've been flawless were it not for the (blatantly-obvious)

      How did you spend your Saturday?

      Mostly grading and TVing: saw the girls basketball team come up one game short of a STATE TITLE (still a great season, ladies) and other sports and cartoons

      I'm going to start spoiler discussion.

      I liked seeing Thrawn with Death Troopers.

      So much for Fulcrum 2.0. But I don't trust

      There's a lot to unpack in this 2-parter, "Zero Hour." I'll wait for others to see it... impatiently so. But I'll say, wow.

      How is the weather by you today?

      Today was supposed to have rain. Nope: the winds blew those clouds out and made it a bit "cool" (mid-60s IIRC). Tomorrow's NASCAR race should

      I'm so glad the basketball gods colluded to remove UCLA so that we no longer have to hear from THAT DAD...or at least hear less from him.
