Yatay Yatay Yotoh – Deconstructing Ubese Part II

You are going to want to make sure you read the first part of this post, here, but we are reverse-engineering Boushh’s language from Return of the Jedi. There are a few steps we have to take before we can begin translating phrases into our own version of Ubese. First step, phonology (the sounds of ...   Source

Bela Rides the Wheel of Time

As we continue with Magical Mount Month, I’d like to take some time to talk about the most ‘mundane’ of horses in my favorite book series, the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan (and completed by Brandon Sanderson). I’m talking about none other than Bela. (Note: there are spoilers for the series in this post.) ...   Source

Jormundgandr Jormundgandr is so large that he encircles the earth with his tail in his mouth. Jormundgandr ...   Source

Midichlorian Mounts

Midichlorians ride humans. Anakin is mostly midichlorians. Yoda has the highest midichlorian count known … until Anakin. Yoda rides his Luke Skywalker steed. Luke must be ridden by a high amount of his Dad’s midichlorians plus Yoda’s. Luke might be carrying more midichlorians than anybody ever?   Source

Yatay yatay yotoh – Deconstructing Ubese Part I

I used to write a conlanging blog called “Makealang.” For those that don’t know, “conlang” is short for “constructed language.” I got into it after the Fellowship of the Ring movie came out and I read that the Elvish language in the books was not merely clever gibberish, but an actual language Tolkien had created. ...   Source

Film Poster Wars Episode 1: Attack of the Counterfeiters

Ever since I was child my parents seemed to take me to theaters on almost a weekly basis. The theaters were a form of escape to be able to journey into another world and experience another person’s life. One week I could be flying a bike with an alien, the next week I ...   Source

Opinion Minion Top 5 Pegasus games

Defending Bronies

I shouldn’t have to write this post, but let me explain where this comes from. Recently, after leaving Phoenix Comicon, I heard the following argument (paraphrased) “Because it’s disgusting. Men shouldn’t be into My Little Pony. It’s a cartoon for little Girls!” The person speaking was a large, angry man bullying five teenaged girls, who ...   Source

Nerducation: The Anti-hero: The Firefly and the Falcon.

Dr. Horrible. Batman. Iron Man. Darryl Dixon & Rick Grimes. Bo (Jangles?). Lisbeth Salander from the Dragon Tattoo Trilogy. Daria Morgendorffer. These names are but a few nontraditional heroes. Are antiheroes going to be the new traditional heroes? Let’s talk! Modern pop culture loves an anti-hero. A hero that, unlike Superman or Robin Hood, is ...   Source

Star Wars Battlepods

For 10,000, you can have a battle pod, and pick C3PO or Vader and your name in the credits. I remember seeing the pods for Battlemech at OwlCon and other cons around the Houston TX area. Something tells me this might be more fun. Even if you just get the 35K model, I imagine the ...   Source

StarWars, Thanksgiving and Christmas

It wasn’t a movie, it wasn’t a variety show. It was… The Star Wars Holiday Special. “I said: ‘You’ve chosen to build a story around these characters who don’t speak. The only sound they make is like fat people having an orgasm,’” the 250-plus-pound Vilanch recalls. “In fact, I told Lucas he could just leave ...   Source

Samurai Sabers

We don’t often read the New York Post, but if there are Samurai battling with lightsabers to remind us of the kendo beginnings of Lightsaber battles, we are not going to turn the page. To be honest, the kendo battle seems appropriate. Lucas based his first lightsaber battle on samurai kendo. And Darth Vader is wearing ...   Source
