You better watch out
You better run
Better hide
I’m telling you why
Triple Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list
And checking it twice
Doesn’t matter if naughty or nice
Triple Claus is coming to town

He’ll kill you when you’re sleeping
He’ll kill you when you’re awake
Doesn’t matter if you’ve been bad or good
So run for goodness sake!

O! You better watch out!
You better run Better hide
I’m telling you why
Triple Claus is coming to town
Triple Claus is coming to town

January Claim About the End of The Force Awakens Given Credence by Empire Article

Back in January, I came across a claim that JJ Abrams originally shot a different ending between Rey and Luke. The claim was Luke originally took the lightsaber from Rey and possibly hugged her from a user by the name of Dent on the awardswatch forums:

The Statistics of Force Sensitivity: Or Why Members of Inferno Squad Should Have a High Midi-chlorian Count

Something that greatly intrigues me about the Star Wars setting and the Force is the statistics of and mechanics Force sensitivity. We know a tiny number have the potential to become Jedi and the most will live their lives without ever seeing any overt evidence of its existence. However, there’s a relatively sizable number of people who are above average and below Jedi potential with consequences for all sorts of professions and statistics in large populations.

Author’s Note: In this article I am simply qualitatively applying population statistics to what we’ve been told and shown about Force sensitivity in the GFFA setting and make no judgement on whether the conclusions are thematically appropriate.

Introducing A New Member of the Council

On behalf of the Shadow Council, I’m pleased to introduce a new member of the blogging team who’s making her debut post today: needsmoresprinkles! (She also goes by needs_more_sprinkles or sprinkles.)

Sprinkles is a freelance theater artist and graphic designer from Seattle, Washington. She became a Star Wars fan in her teenage years, after getting so grossed out by the tauntaun guts scene in The Empire Strikes Back when she was eight that she refused to watch the series for almost a decade. She is most interested in the myth and folklore roots of the series, particularly how it relates to the work of Joseph Campbell. She chose her username because she was making rainbow sprinkle Chex Mix the same day she started her reddit account, and the rest is history.

Let’s give her a warm welcome!

What’s In A Name? Cases For And Against “Rey” Skywalker

DAi9yLQXsAAiEb1

It’s no secret that Rey’s name has been the subject of fierce debate over the past few years—is she Rey Skywalker? Rey Kenobi? Rey Palpatine-Calrissian-Sleazebaggano? Instead of wading into that particular topic, however, I’d like to address a different part of the mystery surrounding Rey’s moniker. Namely, is her name really Rey after all?

Star Wars Battlefront II Multiplayer Review and Analysis: EA’s Sinister Plan

With the recent outrage over the microtransactions in Battlefront II coming off its peak, I felt it necessary that I analyze what EA was attempting to do and what their plan is going forward.

And why this game will never be worth your money.
