Droids are People Too!

The relationship between droid and organic in the Star Wars galaxy has been one of servitude, with the droids typically giving and the organic taking. In most instances, this is the case, and it’s met with contempt in return. Droids were built to serve the need of their masters. But with some droids developing a personality of their own, and creating long-lasting relationships with their masters, one has to wonder is it appropriate to treat a droid based on their programming? Or maybe we should ask ourselves, do we treat our cars like we treat our washing machines? No, but why?

Melinda’s Brew: I Give You The One & Only, The Enchanting BB-8

Melinda's Brew

What is white and orange with a touch of silver and black, rather roly-poly, and resembles a figure 8? [Like you need me to answer that question for you. 😉 ] That just happens to be the character who stole the show when The Force Awakens hit movie screens a couple of years ago – BB-8, who happens to be my favorite character from the new trilogy of Star Wars films. Off and on over the past year and a half, I’ve been naming my favorite characters from TFA and explaining why they have struck a chord with me, and now that the next installment is set to hit theaters in a mere two weeks [can you feel the electric excitement coursing through the air? I can!], it is only fitting that I reveal who caught my eye and touched my heart most of all.

Marvel Star Wars Comics Review: Poe Dameron #20

This review of Star Wars: Poe Dameron #20 contains minor spoilers.

Forgive Black Squadron its foibles and internal relationships, rocky and romantic.

This is a cohesive unit with its collective eyes on the prize of smiting the First Order and, at the very least, ensuring the survival of what has quickly become a very unstable and uncertain Resistance.

Writer Charles Dameron and artist Angel Unzueta, along with colorist Arif Prianto and letter VC’s Joe Caramagna, propel readers along a new story arc, “Legend Found,” that guides the series closer to the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and gives us a look at Lor San Tekka in action.

Porg Psychology 101

Jay’s Galactic Espressions

Whether you love them or hate them, porgs have become a very popular – albeit peculiar – new character in the Star Wars saga. We were introduced to these little penguin-puffin-birdlike creatures in the behind-the-scenes footage reel for The Last Jedi, revealed at the D23 Expo in July of 2017. Avid fans of the saga have had porgs on the brain since this initial introduction, but the debut of the official trailer for The Last Jedi, which aired during halftime of Monday Night Football on October 9, caused the general public to catch porg fever in a big way! Instantly, the Internet was packed with porgs, including this Photoshop challenge, posted by gizmodo.com.

But, why are these little feather bags such a draw for fans, myself included? I’m not usually one to fall prey to overwhelming feelings of “gotta have that,” but these porgs have certainly won me over! So, I decided to take a look at the psychology of porgs – what underlying reasons could there be for this fanatic attraction? What is the possible connection between avian mythology, bird/human personality traits, and the design choices of the porg character itself?
