No Work is  Ever a Solo Venture

  By G. P. Avants   Here is something fun I wanted to share with you. Since we know how a blog, God Among Geeks and podcast, Neekology 101, I watch movies and TV shows a little bit differently.  I wanted to share how I get first impressions and ideas for posts. Maybe for those…

Do You Speak Wookie?

  By G.P. Avants   “My name is Han.” “Last name” He shrugs. “Han…Solo, welcome to service in the Empire.” That is how our beloved rascal of a pilot Han Solo came into the service of the Empire. He attempted an escape with his love Qi’ra, but they became separated. Han attempted to hide in…

EnFORCEing Destiny

By G. P. Avants Okay, this is a piece in a short series for my fellow Star Wars fans who were warm, indifferent, or downright “Sithfully” seething about the direction the Last Jedi took. So, I am surprised, but not really shocked that not everyone agreed with Disney’s director, Rian Johnson did with the Star…

Porg: The Inedible White Meat

How to Run an Empire

  By G.P. Avants   I probably should have done this a long time ago, but it’s better late than never. I wanted to time and say thank you to a director who really does a great job at what he brings to the cinematic galaxy. This gentleman has built an empire that is extensive and…
