Rogue One and the Cuban Rebels

Due to a series of illnesses, I only just recently saw Star Wars Rogue One. It was long enough that I had some major spoilers about the ending which ultimately I’m glad about. This is me warning you that this post is full of spoilers. But if you don’t mind or have already seen it, perhaps you’d like to read how I sat in a theater crying over Cuba as I was watching a science fiction movie about space politics.

Oh, I’m Cuban by the way.

It is a dark time for the rebellion…

Star Wars : The Force of JJ

This is a spoiler filled blog post, but I’ll put everything under the link located under this picture:

Ok, now here be my Star Wars review, observations, and minor J.J. Abrams rant. this is the link you are looking for


these are Not the Nerds you are looking for

Florida SuperCon. My daughter in her Poison Ivy costume wearing the Hellboy mask she got from Duncan Fegredo when he signed her Hellboy graphic novel.

I was sitting at the front desk with my coworker who happens to be a fellow nerd and parent. His daughter is going to be Abby from NCIS for Halloween, mine is going to be Doctor Horrible.  So we’re gushing about our daughters when he brings up this story from a few years ago about a girl being bullied for liking Star Wars.  That’s awful, needless to say.  My daughter has an Avengers lunch box this year and sometimes she’ll mention how some kid at school will comment that she likes “boy things”, but she brushes it off and pities their small mindedness. She’s so much like me I could cry.

I’m left wondering though, what is the difference? How is it that this poor girl with the Star Wars bottle is teased horribly, while my daughter with the Avengers lunch box isn’t? Is it location? Size of school?

If you try to bully me I won’t stop until you cry
