Rogue One: Bail Organa – A Moment of Reflection

By now, there has been so much coverage in ways of analysis on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Honestly, what’s left to talk about? The media, from news-sites to fan-sites, and every corner of the internet has turned this first Star Wars standalone film inside-out, and dissected it from every angle possible. But here, at Coffee with Kenobi, we do our best (by tradition) to take a closer look at even the tiniest of details, through what’s been noted as a critical lens. We do this in hopes to shine some light on possible new perspectives and ideas. Hopefully, I’ll be somewhat successful with what I’m bringing to the table today.

Philip Glass and Star Wars: The Spiritual Link

Philip Glass. A name I was not familiar with until about this time last year when his music became an inspiration for the music in an episode of Star Wars Rebels called “Legends of the Lasat.” If you’re a watcher of Star Wars Rebels then you’ve probably noticed more Philip Glass inspired music this season—check out any episodes with Grand Admiral Thrawn. This was the spark that caused me to watch a documentary called Glass: A Portrait of Philip in Twelve Parts. Born in 1937, Philip was a product of the 60s—meaning that any artistic expression was welcome—no one was excluded. Maybe not every one was accepted as being good, but it was a time when artistic freedom was at its peak. This was the case for 30-year-old Philip who didn’t care if his music was enjoyed or not, he just want to write what he liked; What he thought was good:

The Caffeinated Collector: Episode 31 – “Hope”

Ok, it’s been a month since I saw the Rogue One. As if a new Star Wars movie wasn’t enough news, we also have the passing of Carrie Fisher to contend with. My second viewing of the film just happened to be on the day her death was announced, so the final shot of the film took on even more significance than it ordinarily would have. “Hope,” she said. The Tantive IV took off, the familiar John Williams music started, and the credits rolled. Upon my first viewing, I was smiling. Upon my second, I was still smiling, but it was a bittersweet grin, since it was achieved with the knowledge of Ms. Fisher’s demise. Where would things go from here?

Star Wars Moms: The Strongest Stars have Hearts of Kyber

“The strongest stars have hearts of Kyber.” — Chirrut Imwe

There’s something to be said about this quote or dialogue spoken by the Guardian of the Whills, Chirrut Imwe. It’s amazing what one line can do and how it can trigger a plethora of thoughts; not much different from saying a picture is worth a thousand words. These words unleashed a multitude of emotions on me, and I can’t help myself from going back to it.

Melinda’s Brew: Family Affair

Melinda's Brew

Two weeks to the day after seeing it ourselves, my husband, Tom, and I finally got to see “Rogue One” with our two daughters who came home for the holidays. Neither one of them had seen the newest chapter in Star Wars lore as of yet, and Tom and I were waiting with bated breath for them to see it – especially this past week since the two of us could not talk about the movie at all if there was even the smidgeon of a possibility that either of the girls were within ear shot [our ‘eagle-eared’ daughters can hear just about anything from any corner of the house, we learned long, long ago]. Best to err on the side of caution, and not say one word. In all fairness to the girls, Tom and I each were ‘allowed’ to utter one word in regard to “Rogue One” – we could answer “yes” or “no” to the query, “Did you like it?” after seeing it opening night [December 15]. We embellished our answers by giving a thumb’s up signal. They allowed that. 😉

The Caffeinated Collector: Episode 30 – That’s What Star Wars Means To Me, My Love!!

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, so I’m still in “give thanks” mode. And that’s what I’m gonna do RIGHT NOW!!

I did the daily Thankfulness post on Facebook this year for the first time (at least I think it’s the first time, the mind plays tricks at my age). One day it was about Star Wars, and how it’s brought so much to my life, so I wanted to take a moment to focus on that with you, my favorite reader.

In light of the Holiday Season, namely Thanksgiving, I thought it would only be befitting if I found a way to give “thanks” and what better way than to highlight some Star Wars characters that are lacking in the “thank you” department. And trust me I could think of more, way more characters to thank than just the ones I am about to list on this blog. So what I am waiting for? Let’s get started!
