I've received several emails complaining about the gallery of Star Wars: The Force Awakens props and concept art I posted last week. I don't understand why people are complaining since I explained in the post there'd be spoilers. Nevertheless, I do feel a little bad so this week I'm posting this spoiler free trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakes created by fellow Mac geek, Taz Goldstien. Enjoy.
Today I'm declaring a day of rest and taking my daughter and wife to the Star Wars Celebration. If you're there and see me, say hello! Also, for those of you not in Anaheim, I'll be uploading pictures to Twitter and and probably do a Periscope streaming video or two. Stay tuned and follow me on Twitter.
Recently I joined Scott McNulty on the Random Trek podcast to talk about the DS9 episode, "A Time to Stand". In it we talked Star Trek, Star Wars, my Julian Bashir man-crush, and how Captain Picard got me through law school.
Obi-Wan has always been my favorite Star Wars character. I love that he always tries to do what's right and to this day, as a 45-year-old nerd, I still ask myself on occasion, "What would Obi-Wan do?"
One problem that has never sat right with me though was the way he lied to Luke about his father. It turns out, he really didn't want to do that but instead did it at Yoda's request. There is some cutting room floor footage from Episode VI where Yoda states, on his death bed, "Obi-Wan would have told you [about the true fate of Anakin Skywalker] long ago, had I let him." This didn't make the film but gives my beloved Obi-Wan some (but not all) redemption on this point.
I just spent way too much time looking at paper based spacecraft. You can too.
