Detective Pikachu, I Choose You!

So guess what I saw last Friday?

The world’s first live-action Pokémon has been out for three days and has proven to be a success with audiences, rolling towards a fifty-five million dollar opening. Which is pretty good, seeing as Soulless Cash Grab: Endgame is still out there raking in millions.

But what is it about Detective Pikachu that makes it so good? That allows it to resonate with audiences? And why do crusty old critics hate it so much?

In Like Finn: A Speculative Analysis of the Sequel Trilogy’s Most Misunderstood Hero

Greetings folks! The results of last week’s Tumblr poll are in, and the votes tallied. Finn won by a landslide!

So today, that’s who we’re going to talk about. Who Finn is, why he’s with the Resistance, and most importantly, what lies ahead for him in The Rise of Skywalker.

The One True Dark Lord of the Sith: A Speculative Analysis on Emperor Palpatine and His Role In The Rise of Skywalker

Obviously, we know very little about The Rise of Skywalker and what it entails for our heroes and villains. There have been some leaks and some guesses, but let’s face it: nobody managed to predict the title and nobody managed to predict the return of Sheev Palpatine.

The fandom, even the casual audience, is brimming with questions. Isn’t Palpatine dead? Where has he been for the last thirty years? Is he alive? A ghost? Something else? And most importantly, what is his connection to Snoke and Kylo Ren?

We have no answers yet, and I am not going to pretend that I’m any more enlightened than you are.

But I’m just as curious, and what does a writer do when they’re curious about something? Why, they write about it!

This is the first in my speculative analysis series on The Rise of Skywalker. The series will cover everything from the fate of the Jedi, to the Resistance, the First Order, the nature of the Force and of course all major characters. I chose to start with Palpatine because he is both the biggest surprise so far, and because he’s a fascinating character in his own right.

Short Film Festivals

EWIAN

In the last two weeks my music video for the song ‘Drown to Live’ was shown on several film festivals in Germany.
I’m happy about that and want to share some impressions of the events.

My favored film was ‘The Nine Billion Names of God’, based on the eponymous science fiction short story by British writer Arthur C. Clarke (1953).

The Rise of Skywalker Trailer Analysis

Let me be straight here: I left the Star Wars fandom. I cancelled my subscription to Star Wars: The Old Republic. I uninstalled both Knights of the Old Republic games from my computer. I haven’t watched a Star Wars film since The Last Jedi.

Jeffery Jacob Abrams, however, is an emotionally manipulative bastard who’s out to get me personally, and so he cooked up this little trailer. And guess what? I’m back. Yay me.

Join me under the cut as I analyze this newest bit of emotional trauma.

Testuya Nomura and Brian Mitsoda, You’ve Stolen My Productivity!

Yeah, so guess what I’ve been doing for the past three weeks or so?

Between That Announcement and buying the total Kingdom Hearts package (don’t judge me), I haven’t gotten any work done.

On the other hand, I got a lot done beforehand, so when I resume working in April I should zip right along.

See you next week!

A Wild Generation Has Appeared!

Goooooood morning internet!

Over this cold yet? I sure am. And it’s not quite done with us yet. Another week to go.

Speaking of cold, I’m going to be frank: I didn’t get much done in February due to the cold. I was shut down, so to speak.

So everything on my to-do list from the last time I spoke to you? Yeah, that’s been pushed back a month. I’m still writing, though, and I will have new chapters up and ready soon! Promise.

In the meantime, though, I want to talk about Pokémon: Sword and Shield.

Needed a Break

The Twelve Caesars

After the holidays and the tumblr platform blew up, I needed to take a long break from my blog. However, I am back and I am thinking about starting an interior design business for those with novels. More on that soon. But I also am trying to cut some internet time out of my life. So, I won’t be stalking my WordPress to see who re-posted what.

I hope to write more about Rome soon-ish once I sort out my life. 😀

Anyways, I’m alive and doing well. I hope you all had good New Year!
