Happy Teacher Appreciation Week

Not only is this week a major holiday to many Star Wars fans, but it is also Teacher Appreciation Week! In a year where teachers have had to relearn their entire jobs while keeping kids engaged online at home and safe when coming to schools, it is important to not forget them this May. My amazing wife who is the Executive Director of a small non-profit which works to improve and strengthen the teaching profession tasked me with creating an image for her newsletter. As a public middle school teacher myself, I have seen the sacrifice, frustration, triumphs, and tears this past year has caused for teachers and students alike and so to all my fellow educators out there, while I know so many of [...]

May the 4th Day 2021 [Update]

It is that time again, when the calendar switches out of April, to begin our month of Star Wars love! We like to proclaim the whole month of May is a time to celebrate Star Wars, as it holds not only the May the 4th holiday, but anniversaries for most of the films as well. This year we are starting our holiday celebrations on Monday and will continue to celebrate the Saga through Wednesday! There are those who turn up their nose at the fan-originated holiday which has now become a staple for retailers and Disney/Lucasfilm but we love any chance to pay love and respect to the franchise that has brought us some much joy over the past four decades. Although we will still [...]

All the Best in the New Year!

As the year 2020 comes to an end, just like Grogu's journey, for many it has been full of ups and downs. May 2021 bring you peace, knowledge, serenity, and harmony. We were thankful for The Mandalorian Season 2 as this year was pretty sparse in terms of the normal blockbuster, superhero and sci-fi fare we enjoy. Plus, this was the first year since 2015 which hasn't produced a new Star Wars film. We are thankful for the announcement of the vast amount of Star Wars content coming in the next five years and can't wait to explore it all with you in our collections. And our expectations are high for the next adventure to drop in 2021, The Book of Boba Fett. But that [...]

Happy May the 4th 2020

Happy Star Wars Day! This year for all of us, celebrating May the 4th will be a little different from year's past. We typically host an event at our middle school and attend a Mariners or Rainers Star Wars Night but with most of the country staying home we will be celebrating distantly. But the great thing about Star Wars is the magic happens no matter the number of fans around. We plan on celebrating today in the following ways: Watching the series finale of The Clone Wars on Disney+ Watching Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian also on Disney+ Joining a Microsoft Team Meeting with Anthony Daniels Checking in on the numerous live-tweeting Star Wars events courtesy of Emerald City Comic Con Opening some Star Wars [...]
