Just looking for a quick burn here. Now reading, Omen (Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi book 2) by Christie Golden. 



The Jedi Order is in crisis. The late Jacen Solo’s shocking transformation into murderous Sith Lord Darth Caedus has cast a damning pall over those who wield the Force for good: Two Jedi Knights have succumbed to an inexplicable and dangerous psychosis, criminal charges have driven Luke Skywalker into self-imposed exile, and power-hungry Chief of State Natasi Daala is exploiting anti-Jedi sentiment to undermine the Order’s influence within the Galactic Alliance.

Forbidden to intervene in Jedi affairs, Luke is on a desperate mission to uncover the truth behind Jacen’s fall to the dark side–and to learn what’s turning peaceful Jedi into raving lunatics. But finding answers will mean venturing into the mind-bending space of the Kathol Rift and bargaining with an alien species as likely to destroy outsiders as deal with them. Still, there is no other choice and no time to lose, as the catastrophic events on Coruscant continue to escalate. Stricken by the same violent dementia that infected her brother, Valin, Jedi Knight Jysella Horn faces an equally grim fate after her capture by Natasi Daala’s police. And when Han and Leia Solo narrowly foil another deranged Jedi bent on deadly destruction, even acting Jedi Grand Master Kenth Hamner appears willing to bow to Daala’s iron will–at the expense of the Jedi Order.

But an even greater threat is looming. Millennia in the past, a Sith starship crashed on an unknown low-tech planet, leaving the survivors stranded. Over the generations, their numbers have grown, the ways of the dark side have been nurtured, and the time is fast approaching when this lost tribe of Sith will once more take to the stars to reclaim their legendary destiny as rulers of the galaxy. Only one thing stands in their way, a name whispered to them through the Force: Skywalker.

Wow! That is quite a hall of stuff you picked up. I'm glad you had a great time there. What did you buy at Universal?

General Rieekan may have abandoned his peg but Clegg Holdfast is still there. Anyone need this guy?

Saga Collection '06 / Re: General Rieekan watch at RiteAid

Forgot to write about this  but someone actually bought old General Rieekan for $13.99 at RiteAid. Seven years is a long time to warm a peg. Just ask Stinky Pete.

I've been thinking. Do I really need to attend Comic Con this year? I know if I don't go, it becomes impossible to get tickets again next year. My 7 year old really enjoys taking pictures with the cosplay people and he likes the Lego and Hasbro booths. We could care less about the presentations but the seller booths are kind of fun to poke thru. On the other hand, it crowed and parking is a nightmare. It's also impossible to get exclusives since Hasbro likes to give away tickets at 2 in the morning on preview night so there is no way to actually get anything.

What do you think? Maybe I should just stick with WonderCon?

Finishing up the Ender books with "Children of the Mind" by Orson Scott Card.



The planet Lusitania is home to three sentient species: the Pequeninos; a large colony of humans; and the Hive Queen, brought there by Ender. But once against the human race has grown fearful; the Starways Congress has gathered a fleet to destroy Lusitania.

Jane, the evolved computer intelligence, can save the three sentient races of Lusitania. She has learned how to move ships outside the universe, and then instantly back to a different world, abolishing the light-speed limit. But it takes all the processing power available to her, and the Starways Congress is shutting down the Net, world by world.

Soon Jane will not be able to move the ships. Ender's children must save her if they are to save themselves.

Don't you love how these monkeys keep pushing off the date of pre-registration? It was suppose to be back between Nov 1st and Dec 31st, now its sometime in the next "few" months. I can just see them sending an email says, "Register NOW!!! with 10 minutes before their deadline. Most of them will go to some spam filter. I guess that is a way to cut the crowds.

I always thought Lara Croft was based on Angelina Jolie except for the current game were they just beat the crap out of her.

Russell Johnson, 'the Professor' from Gilligan's Island, dies at 89

I guess that really does leave Mary Ann and Ginger that still haven't gotten off this island Earth.
