Link’n’Blogs – 6.23.17 – Solo Change


Related Content from And There Came A Day


I loved Lincoln Logs when I was a kid. Though I never entertained the idea that I would be a designer, engineer or architect, something about putting together these wooden and plastic pieces was simply simple fun. Connecting to ideas through the blogosphere seems similar to this pursuit, hence the title of this weekly post. Each Friday, I intend to post something interesting I’ve read out there on the internets. Hopefully others will find these posts as thought provoking as I have.

Did you hear the one about the young movie directors who were given the assignment of directing a movie about one of the most beloved characters in science fiction film history only to be FIRED with 3/4 of principal photography completed and to be replaced by one of the biggest directors in the business? Click the photo!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is released on digital home video today. One of the great thrills of a very thrilling movie was how nicely it tied into A New Hope, the movie many people simply know as Star Wars. How nicely did it dovetail? Take ten minutes for the video below and you’ll see just how seamlessly it all fits together. The Force was at work…

If you’re a Star Wars fan, you’ve seen Rogue One: A Star Wars Story by now. Did you know it’s the highest grossing film of 2016? That’s pretty impressive when one considers it only opened on December 16th. I loved the movie and this article is an interview with the director and an exciting “deep dive” into the backstory some of which was filmed but didn’t make the final cut. And, are you wondering whether Chirrut and Baze were, in fact, gay? Interesting answer here…

Carrie Fisher – Another Causality of 2016


Related Content from And There Came A Day


fisherCarrie Fisher was, clearly, someone special. Young, vibrant and wise beyond her years when she starred in the original Star Wars trilogy, she obviously found herself at odds with the demands of fame, the requirements of celebrity and the expectations placed upon her. So, to apply a cliched term, she rebelled. Uncomfortable in that skin, one which was false, she chose to inhabit another, one which was real. Her real identify was a writer, a wit, an unabashed critic. What is most powerful to me about Fisher is that she critiqued her own life in the harshest of manners – in the spotlight. Her autobiographical novel POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE and her first memoir WISHFUL DRINKING paint a picture of a woman who learned who she was, how to be at peace with who she was and that she didn’t give a damn about what anyone else thought about who she was. She opened doors for people to talk about mental illness and to discuss addiction. She seemed, in recent years, to be amused by her life, not at odds with it. She seemed at peace.

And, to be sure, she was the first princess this guy ever cared about.
