'Star Wars: Ahsoka' is finally here

22 October[ —]


The long awaited Star Wars: Ahsoka offers a glimpse into the time between the fall of the Republic and the beginning of the rebellion against the Empire.

Ashoka Tano, dedicated padawan Jedi and apprentice to Anakin Skywalker, was tossed from the Jedi order on trumped up charges. After clearing herself, the Togrutan force user declined to rejoin the order and disappeared, conveniently allowing her to survive 'Order 66.' We know that in time Ahsoka will aid the budding rebellion and face off against her dreaded former master, but what happened in between?

Star Wars: Ahsoka not only picks up with the story of WHAT HAPPENED??!? after the Jedi fell, it shares a few excellent tidbits about her past well, like where those white lightsabers come from! Ashoka is aided by old friends, and new, as well as enemies. See the Inquisitors begin to rise, and the Jedi light fades from the galaxy.

I'm a huge Ahsoka fan, and this one of the best pieces of Star Wars fiction I've read in a long while!

Under-educated white guys against Trump

A bunch of dudes who lack college degrees figured out how to make a video, and they hate Donald.

I also left school early, and can't stand Donald.

Trump hotels, faced with massive declines in bookings, rebrand as "Scion Hotels"

22 October[ —]


When estimating his net worth, Pepe the Cheeto is apt to include a multibillion dollar valuation for the "Trump" brand-name; but new Trump Hotels will be called "Scion" hotels, "a nod to the Trump family and to the tremendous success it has had with its businesses, including Trump Hotels, while allowing for a clear distinction between our luxury and lifestyle brands."
