Welcome to Rogue Ramblings
For some time I have wanted to start to share and interact more with the Star Wars community at large but found the right means to do so a bit elusive. Interacting with people at Star Wars Celebration and other conventions have always been fantastic experiences but I feel like a bit of an outsider at times. In the past I have tried to blog a couple of times but it never felt like I struck the right tone or I was “always on the move” and never got myself settled into a routine. I’ve also been asked to write articles on occasion but didn’t have the time to devote to that until recently. So I’ve decided to “redouble my efforts” and give blogging another go.
This will not be a news site, while I may post some of the latest comings and goings, don’t plan on up to the minute details of every rumor, also unless it is officially released by Lucasfilm or The Walt Disney Company don’t expect to see it here.
The main focus of Rogue Ramblings is of course Star Wars (films, animation, literature, gaming) but don’t mind me if I wander off course like a “Crazy Old Wizard” from time to time, on some “damned fool idealistic crusade.”
The first of the secondary topics will be my Running Rogue posts. These are designed to detail my journey through fitness and my goals of running in the runDisney Rebel Challenge and Dark Side Challenge next year at Disneyland and at Walt Disney World respectively. This will be a fitness log of sorts detailing what I do each day and what successes and hurdles I find along my path. Also since I’m still a foodie at heart you might see a few recipes pop up and maybe a couple cocktails more suitable/tasty than what you might find at the Cantina in Mos Eisley.
Second I’ve wanted to try something new and Rogue Revisions will follow the customization process of Star Wars action figures from start to finish. I started this last year after Star Wars Celebration Anaheim when we were first introduced to Ahsoka’s 501st troopers by Dave Filoni. This was my first pass at customization and I am very proud of the effort, the first of Ahsoka’s Troopers went to Ashley Eckstein last year at Star Wars Weekends as a thank you for everything she has done for the Star Wars community.
Going forward my next customization will be an Obi-Wan Kenobi in Mandalorian armor from season 5 of the Clone Wars, which I had already started on but need to finish up the final stages of paint application. If all goes as planned I will continue to do a few more as I’m interested in doing a few more custom figures that we saw, most particularly from the Clone Wars era.
So follow me if you wish along this long and winding path to health and wellness and maybe some new insights into the saga that I love.
