Every Single Scene From Order 66 In 'Star Wars'
Order 66 was Palpatine’s coup de gras in his, and the Sith’s, plan to defeat the Jedi Order and take over the Republic. The scenes following Palpatine’s order were some of the saddest for the Jedi and Star Wars fans alike.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Review
This review comes from my Letterboxd profile, where I review every movie I see. This is a really weird movie for me to review. While I personally really enjoyed The Rise of Skywalker, I also have to acknowledge there are a LOT of structural flaws throughout the course of the movie. It's another one of those instances where I want to give it a four subjectively and a three objectively, but unlike Timeless, where I ultimately decided my objectivity outweighed my subjectivity for that movie, this time, it's smack-dab in the middle and doesn't lean one way or the other. While I wouldn't say this is a better film than The Force Awakens, I might have personally preferred it. But, okay, I've talked about my general opinion on this movie, what are my specific opinions?
Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review
This review talks about events that happen throughout the film, but doesn't go into specific detail about how it all goes down. Because of this, this review will be given a minor/borderline major spoiler warning. It comes from my Letterboxd profile.
The Locket for Power
Trevor Geddis sprinted through the woods, his heart pounding in his chest, his breathing was heavy, but he knew he could not stop running or they would find him. Beads of sweat trickled down his red face as he gasped for air. He only had to keep going a little bit more...just over the fence and he would be safe. Trevor looked at his cracked watch, he had ten minutes before the shields went up. He picked up the pace as he darted through the dark, foreboding forest. Footsteps were not far from him, he took a deep breath in and continued to run. The fence was not too far from him now, he could see it in the distance. He pushed himself even harder, his shirt was soaked with his own sweat. Trevor reached the fence, this would be the hard part, he lunged himself off the ground and grabbed onto the fence, he still had three minutes, he quickly scrambled a shot was fired at him he lost his footing, but found it again and he continued up the wall faster this time. His legs were starting to ache from running so much. Another shot was fired this time it grazed his side. Trevor let out a small noise that was barely audible, he gritted his teeth and he finally jumped down as a third shot was fired. He landed in the heap of hay that the base had laid out.
A Cut from the Past
I used to say flying cars was the answer to everything. What would make me happiest, when leaving this earth, is knowing that living being that requires clean oxogen to survive has that and more. Also having the ability to travel to anywhere in the universe without a single molecule of pollution would be cool too. The ingredients to do just that have been sitting right under everyone’s feet since the very first fire smoldered out. Ceramics, aka heated dirt, can bind carbon molecules together in such a way to build crafts of any size or shape. Carbon molecules can store electrons, aka electricity. What if removing the need for electric lines and redefining the past is exactly what we need to help propel a sustainable future for all? My Fiskers helped me figure this out, and for that, I am eternally grateful.
Weekly (06/06 – 06/12/2021)
06/06/2021 You're holding out for more. Why? Well, because you know you deserve better. Furthermore, you'd like someone to fix the mess that they made. However, even though someone keeps an eye on you, they're too proud to make a move. Plus, they feel like they have some healing to do. Still, I see someone's impatience growing. Thus, someone is planning on making an entrance. So, pay attention to the signs. The universe is hinting at us that it's time.
Sun effects in astrology
In Vedic astrology, the Sun is known as RAVI or SURYA. Because of his heated, dry character, he is said to be mildly maleficent. The Sun dominates the Sign of Leo, just as it does in western tropical astrology (Simha). In the sign of Aries (Mesh), he is exalted (Uccha), while in the sign of Libra, he is in his decline (Neecha). The ATMAKARAKA is the name given to the Sun. This is derived from the Sanskrit words ATMA, which means soul, and KARAKA, which means indication. The Sun is the source of life as an "indicator of the soul." The parent, our ego, honors, prestige, renown, the heart, the eyes, general vigor, respect, and power are all represented by the Sun. The Sun is directly overhead in the 10th House, where he is at his most powerful. He's also adept at the other Kendras, or Angles.
Cryssarina’s First Visit - Part 2
This is the second part of a longish story. The first part (also linked at the bottom) needs to be read first to better understand this second part. Anthi Psomiadou has graciously agreed to be included as a fictional character in this unusual visit by Cryssarina to Greece where she hopes to speak to Goddess Athena and find Patrick who may still be alive somewhere wandering around her but possibly somewhere else.
