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?

MarvinDog Media Star Wars logo(plain)

Apparently I have a problem. As I wrote last month, I’ve recently begun collecting vinyl, including Star Wars vinyl (which allowed me to work my vinyl collection into THIS blog, thanks Star Wars!). Several of my friends have said the same thing to me when they find out about my new collecting venture: “Yeah, as if you needed something ELSE to collect.” I’m not sure how I feel about that…

The Caffeinated Collector: Episode 27 – …Because I Don’t Already Collect Enough Stuff…

MarvinDog Media Star Wars logo(plain)

My blog is ostensibly about collecting and Star Wars. Not always, of course, but mostly, that’s my focus. I recently wandered down the dark, deep hole of collecting albums on vinyl. I know, as if I have space or the means to take on ANOTHER collection. I have a problem, I know, I’m dealing, thank you. ANYWHO, this brings up a new area of Star Wars collecting that I haven’t given much attention to: Star Wars records!!!! I want them all, the music, the story discs, all of it! And I actually already have quite a bit!
