  1. The 2017 Thrawn book is basically the story of when Thrawn first joined the Empire right up until he was promoted to Grand Admiral. The whole book takes place during the Galactic Civil War and you definitely get a unique inside look at a lot of Empire stuff. The newer Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy is before he joined the empire and is all about the Chiss and takes place almost completely in the unknown regions. I didn't like those ones as much. Great worldbuilding but not very interesting stories imo.
  2. Not to be boring but Mr Brightside is the only Killers song I like lol I don’t really like Flowers’ singing voice, but it’s fine in that song.
  3. I liked it! I don’t like all of the new Thrawn novels that much, but that first one was a pretty cool Thrawn “origin” story. I really liked the second one too. After that, they’re just okay imo. Not bad, but not great either. Catalyst was a great tie-in to Rogue One. It came out before the movie, so I went into that movie with all this extra background information on the characters that made it really fun for me.
  4. I’ve been wondering for a while since I reread those books a few years ago, but I guess I never thought to ask until now! Haha. That’s a Star Wars deep cut.
  5. how far back is this show going to take place? could we potentially see characters like Smeagol or is it farther back than that? or do we even know yet?
  6. I love the lineup but so many people are going to be at this, especially after a period of everyone being starved for concerts. I feel like you’d have to stand a mile away from the stage haha. But I’m guessing it’s like a one day Warped Tour kind of setup. For ten times the price. Yeah no thanks.
  7. @Ghent where is your screen name from? Because I know there are some cities named Ghent but I also know that Ghent is a character in the original Thrawn books which I know you’ve read lol
  8. Mark sending davey a toy of himself is somehow hilarious to me. I want to send toys of me to my friends.
  9. At least Mark and Tom seem like real people. Travis is a prime example of crazy celebrity life, so divorced from reality. I love the guy and his music but I couldn’t imagine doing anything with him.
  10. I read his book. We have nothing in common lol
  11. I’d love to hang out with Mark or Tom sometime just because they were my heroes for so long. But I honestly get the impression that Matt might actually be the most fun to hang out with.
  12. The best tweet I saw about them was someone saying they hope she changes her name to Megan Gun Kelly
  13. One of the few tiktoks I’ve actually lol’d at 😂
  14. Remember when blink-182 had an official message board after the reunion announcement? I registered there, maybe posted once, but I was already a member here and this board was way better. That message board certainly didn't last long.
  15. If Mark’s Discord would have been around when I was a teenager I would have been all over it. I’m just tired now and Discord is a little overwhelming for me haha. I liked when he used to pop in on the blink-182 collectors Facebook group. Again, it’s mostly just that chatroom-style isn’t my preference. If I could be a part of a community with mark in a message board style I’d definitely enjoy that. Yellowcard used to have an official message board that the band members would actually post on and that was great fun for me, but it went offline.
  16. Oh yeah I know Discord is used by all ages, I just meant that teens and 20-somethings are more drawn to staying up to date with the currently trending social media platforms than someone like me, an extremely old man who hasn't been in my 20s for two whole months now!
  17. I think this is why I don't like it. I like that I can post here casually and it will be understood that I won't respond immediately to whatever replies or quotes I get. The fact that it isn't real time makes it better for me. I can read at my own pace, reply at my own pace, and take my time to write up a proper response to things when I feel like I need extra time to properly get my thoughts out, without a stream of messages zooming by in the meantime. As I've gotten older I've increasingly disliked being able to be contacted 24/7 and I've started letting text messages build up in my inbox and letting calls go unanswered because I don't want to be on all the time. It was so much fun to be connected with my friends 24/7 as a teenager but now I just want time to breathe and I wish people couldn't contact me whenever they wanted. A message board fits the way I prefer to communicate much better than a constantly updating mass chatroom ever will. Though even when I was younger I never liked chatrooms. It just feels like the most chaotic way to have discussions.
  18. I wonder if it really will stay on Tatooine the entire time. It seems like it will. And we’re getting the Obi-Wan show later this year that will also be mostly Tatooine. fuck Jakku and Pasaana they should have just been Tatooine lol
  19. I think it's also because younger people are more likely to accept the current popular social media platforms while us olds just want to chat casually on a message board. As a teenager I excitedly signed up for every new big social media platform. Now I just stick with what I'm familiar with, which isn't Discord. I don't care anymore lol
  20. the irony is that Modlife was actually a pretty great deal for when it started, and they've never had anything good like that since. The fact that being a Modlife member got you into AVA Meet & Greets made it an extremely good deal for that alone, considering they cost hundreds to get into now. But the band was super active on Modlife for a time and it was really fun to interact with them on their video chats. I mean it was basically Twitch before Twitch became big. Of course, it didn't last, and the band stopped using it, and in the end people were left paying for nothing, like always lol.
  21. Mando season 2 was just non-stop amazing episodes for me so it’s probably going to be hard for most shows to top that, but I’m really liking Boba Fett so far!
  22. Lol wow I don’t even remember that. I do remember the orcs being CGI though and thought they looked terrible compared to the LOTR orcs. And I’m not even someone who hates on CGI usually. It was more the inconsistency with the previous trilogy that bothered me. Also for some reason they made Legolas’ eyes extremely unrealistically bright blue despite him having normal eyes in LOTR. I don’t get it. I’m reading The Hobbit right now so I’ll probably give these movies another go after I finish reading it. My expectations are not great haha
  23. who’s gonna buy the Travis Barker monkey NFT 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
  24. Hasn’t heard of it until now but I also love Danny McBride. Might have to check it out because of him!
  25. They should have stuck with the original plan to only do two movies. It could have been so good without all the pointless extra content. Pretty funny that LOTR fans love having longer versions of LOTR but pretty much universally wish The Hobbit was shorter lol
