Think about a thing that you hate the most. Find ONE thing, no matter how trivial, that you like about it. It could be the background music, a color pallet, panel layout, choreography, etc. Enjoy that one thing for what it is. You may be surprised at how many more pleasant things come to your attention.
There was a time when I would complain about every little thing that a movie or TV show got wrong. I would discuss this for hours with others of like minded, unhappy, fanatics. Railing against Lucas, or something as equally inconsequential. Then one day I began to see things from a “certain point of view”, and I looked for little gems in what I had deemed to be a pile of Bantha Poodoo.
Are there still things that I don’t like? Sure, but I endeavor to look beyond them. I may even skip a few panels, chapters, tracks, or minutes of a film. I choose to enjoy things for what they are. It’s nice to be able to enjoy most of the special editions, and the prequels, among other things now.
Try it. It’s better to have a great time than it is to troll about it. Heck, the only thing I will be brutally critical about is my own work.
The cool patch offer aside… the fact that they have an incredible bust of Grand Moff Tarkin is a huge teaser! What can this mean for Rogue One or even Episode 8? Time will tell.
My wife and I really enjoyed the evolution of the characters, except Hondo… that guy never changes 😂 Some time has passed since they lost Asoka, and we are thrown right into action. No spoilers here. Click the link and watch it. If you’ve seen it already then watch it again 👍
Once upon a time, this was Star-Lord. In 1976, Star-Lord made his first appearance in the pages of Marvel-Preview Presents magazine. Different times, different kinds of heroes, same characters. While the designs have evolved since these days, the stories, well… have pretty much been told over and over. I dig the technique on the background of this classic cover.
… is a thing of beauty!
It reminds me of this Alex Ross piece. ↓ Both are an absolute win in my book 🙂
Kanan discovers that things are not always black and white. It’s time to hear from the middle, the Grey. This excites me for more than we will be delving into the philosophy of the many facets of the Force, we will also get to hear from the fourth Doctor… MY Doctor. Tom Baker crosses the genre streams and becomes, what could possibly be, an integral part of Luke Skywalker’s inevitable journey.
May the Fourth be with us all.
