What Rey Means to Me

rey

The Force Awakens introduced us to the all new generation of Star Wars heroes. The former stormtrooper turned rebel, Finn, the best damn pilot in the galaxy and everyone’s best friend, Poe Dameron, and of course the Jakku scavenger and possible new Jedi Knight, Rey. While I am a huge fan of all of them (Team StormPilot), Rey is undoubtedly the one that has resonated with me the most.

Check Out this Rogue One-Inspired Remix “This is a Rebellion!”

a0273469992_16

“This is a Rebellion isn’t it? I rebel.” So says Jyn Erso in the teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Do you wonder what sort of music she might listen to? Probably something with a bit of an edge, a great beat, but wholly inspired by the genius of John Williams.

Perhaps something like the latest remix from Fatboy Roberts’ Geek: Remixed?

The Caffeinated Collector: Episode 25 – It’s not JUST the mileage. It’s also the years.

MarvinDog Media Star Wars logo(plain)

So….it took 24 months, but I missed my first blog. Not a bad track record. Then, I missed the next one. It happens, sure. But not to me. I’m nothing if not reliable, and circumstances beyond my control conspired to cause me to miss my deadline twice in a row. So I’m writing this two days AFTER my last blog was due, so I will be sure not to miss it next time. No, it’s really not a HUGE deal, but I despise missing deadlines, mostly because I never do it. Luckily, my topic will STILL be semi-timely when this DOES post, so here we go. Now that The Force Awakens has come out on home video, we can all bask in the Star Wars Goodness anytime we want, and we only had to wait 4 months to do it! I remember back when I was a kid….

Yep, it’s gonna be one of THOSE blogs, kids!
