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.

Core Worlds Couture: Squadron Goals Products Review and Jewelry Tutorial

Core Worlds Couture With Jay Krebs

Welcome back to another edition of Core Worlds Couture! This week, its a two-for-one-deal: a review and a jewelry tutorial!

A few weeks ago, I was searching for some simple porg merch – namely a badge-pin to add to my ever-growing collection – and I ran across a re-tweeted post in Twitter from @My Squadron Goals. So, I clicked on over to the Etsy store (named Squadron Goals) to purchase the pin, and was greeted by an adorable arrangement of Star Wars goodies: enamel pins, phone charms, stickers, and bumper stickers. The shop owner, Courtney Morelock, was kind enough to agree to send me a few phone charms and pins, in addition to the porg badge-style pin I had purchased. As it turns out, Courtney is also one half of  “Who Talks First,” a podcast she co-hosts with her friend, Solo.
