So there’s a new Discovery trailer. It looks like a thing that exists. I mean, i’ve seen a lot of things, and that… is one.

Can we please cut down on the Bible-bashing? I understand many of you don’t believe, but seriously.

I’ve been listening to plenty of unabridged audiobooks lately. I’m currently re-listening to the books in the Ender’s Game universe)–and am currently on book 2 of the Shadow series, Shadow of the Hegemon.

Before that, I was listening to Expeditionary Force, books 1 and 2.

I’ve read enders game and speaker for the dead and I loved them. I started to read xenocide a long time ago but, while the story was fascinating, reading it gave me a headache so I gave up on it. Perhaps I should try it again now that I’m an adult. I’ve re-read the first two as an adult and adored them, especially speaker, but I was daunted because of my previous encounter with xenocide. But I was like a freshmen in high school so I should give it another go.

Pretty much my exact experience (well, maybe I didn’t get a headache, but I didn’t finish). I too was a freshman in high school, and maybe I’ll give it another go sometime in the next few years.

Anyway, I’m finally starting Children of Dune, having bought it weeks ago.

It would open up new possibilities story-wise. How would other aliens treat her differently?

All episodes will be twice as long because male characters will keep interrupting her.

The problem of Owen Lars
Time

I don’t know what was going on in George’s head, but I can make something up real quick.

WARNING: COMPLICATED AND STUPID MENTAL GYMNASTICS AHEAD

(ignoring the PT entirely)

  1. Anakin’s last name was originally Lars, but being “the best star pilot in the galaxy,” he earned the nickname/title Skywalker.

  2. Luke, not appreciating his nickname of Wormie, took the nickname he heard associated with his father because it’s much cooler.

On the one hand, you don’t want to control children’s media diet so much that you’re basically deciding what they like. They should be their own person with their own interests.

On the other hand, you don’t want children to like crappy stuff. I can argue for both sides.

Disclaimer: I am not a parent.

Even if they saw and enjoyed it, they’d forget it fairly quickly. I’ve forgotten almost every non-Disney(/Pixar) movie I saw in theaters when I was little, and some of those I’m not even sure if I saw in theaters or if we waited for home releases.

I really liked the end credits in Homecoming. Not the credit scenes, which were just standard Marvel credit scenes, but the actual first segment of credits was pretty cool.

Star Wars Destiny (New Shorts by Disney)
Time

These are neat little shorts. The animation is fine, Daisy’s voice work is fine (the Leia actress, less so) and I liked the sandworm on Jakku — dune — desert planet.
