Binary System Podcast #21 – New year, out of control already

Without a Night Vale episode this week, we set off to do a short podcast about what we’ve got coming up for January. It quickly spiraled into a discussion about X-Files, book authors, spoiler warnings, fan fiction, Warehouse 13, Mission Impossible, Doctor Who, and Star Wars. Of course. (Kathryn hasn’t seen Force Awakens yet so we’re still SPOILER FREE.)

Binary System Podcast #20 – WTNV Episode 80: A New Sheriff In Town

Happy Christmas Eve, y’all! Don’t forget to say Merry Christmas to the government agents running 24-hour surveillance on your business and home. (But avoid saying their name out loud when you’re on the radio. That’s just rude. Jeez, Cecil, were you raised in a barn?)

Join the twins for the last podcast of the year as we recap Welcome To Night Vale Episode #80, where we get to know the new sheriff (he likes interpretive dance), find out more about the trial of the century (Hiram McDaniel’s Violet head will be the key witness against the other four), and hear the proposal to tag all Desert Bluffs visitors so we’ll know who in our community are the unwelcome ones. That’s…not good.

There’s also a little more discussion about Star Wars. Which comes as a surprise to no one.

Review: Star Wars – Darth Plagueis

Review: Star Wars – Darth Plagueis

“Evil?” Plagueis repeated. “What is that? Moments ago you defined yourself as a storm. You said you were death itself. Are you evil, then, or are you simply stronger and more awake than others?”

The question that Darth Sidious’s Master asks his new apprentice is probably the simplest demonstration of the difference between the Light side of the Force and the Dark. Or at least the way that the Sith see their role in the Force. And no one typifies this outlook more than the wealthy banker and secret Sith Lord from the planet Muunilinst, Hugo Damask.

Darth Plagueis is an in-depth exploration of the Star Wars Sith Lord first mentioned in Revenge of the Sith. The novel begins and ends with the death of the title character, and covers several decades of his life as he manipulates history to bring about the eventual downfall of the Jedi while searching for the secret of immortal life. The story is filled with plots and political maneuverings which are, in a lot of cases, way over my head.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Spoiler Free Review)

Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Spoiler Free Review)

On May 25, 1977 the realm of film, science fiction and the real world itself changed: the first Star Wars film was unleashed on an unsuspecting public, and nothing has even been the same since. It changed the entire medium for the better and became the film anthem for entire generation. On May 19th, 1999 filmmakers took us back to the universe of Star Wars: also changing the world as we know it, just not in the way any fan could ever imagine. Hate them or love them, the prequels are an endless conversation for the old and new generations.

The third times the charm; as of December 18, 2015 I can safely say the world has changed yet again. As the wind blows back toward something amazing, an era of greatness begins once more for fans from any generation.
