  4. 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
  5. 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. ...

  9. OK, today we are talking about Pegasus. Yes, the Greek god Pegasus, the one that you hear less about, but everybody likes. now I like Pegasus cause he is a horse with wings. He doesn’t need magic or a horn to fly. He is a normal flying horse (Horses Flying is normal?)that has wings. This ... Source
  10. 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.

  14. 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
  15. These are my notes from the events of Friday May 29, 2015 at Phoenix Comicon. 9:45 Day two of the annual Convention has commenced, and Darth Anexandros and I have arrived early, so we can get good parking and he can find his way to the morning panel he wants to attend.

  20. 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
