Awaken Romance this Valentines Day with Star Wars Cards on Etsy

At this time of year, I can generally be found scrambling to locate a Valentines Day card for my husband that fulfils my near-impossible desires of being not-too-smutty, not-too-smushy, and not costing approximately half my next mortgage payment.

As much as I love him, my husband and I are more likely to quote lines from Galavant‘s “Maybe You’re Not the Worst Thing Ever” to one another than Hallmark’s sickeningly sweet endearments.

Nor do I wish to have “hilarious” cards describing how much we’d like to “bonk” one another on display where our six-year-old, or my mother-in-law, can easily read them. As a result, I’ve taken to Etsy for my Valentines Day card shopping over recent years where I’m spoilt for choice when it comes to nerdy, adorable cards that really speak to us and our relationship. This year I have, unsurprisingly, noticed a vast array of Star Wars cards in my searches and I wanted to share some of my favourites with you, many of which are perfect for handing out at school.

Disney, You Lost Money On My-Four-Year Old Daughter

Disney has decided to withhold Rey toys, because, you know, no boy would want to play with a girl doll, and girls don’t want to play Star Wars. The magic marketers know it all.

Left unchecked, you will crush my daughter, who plays house with boys and superheroes with girls, loves her ballet, and has a huge stack of unused princess toys because many of her relatives and friends won’t shop for her outside of the girl section.

Don’t worry, I will not let you pull the joy from my four-year-old’s play, no matter how she doesn’t fit the segmentation you believe she is in. I will help her find the toys she likes best.

You will, however, lose any revenue you might get by properly conducting your market research and your segmentation, and actually create toys my daughter would like, then market them to her. That choice and loss is yours.

Trying Not to Raise Kylo Ren

I can’t stop thinking about Kylo Ren.

There’s no way to explain this without the nitty-gritty details, so if you’re still avoiding The Force Awakens spoilers (I know, you’re a parent, getting out of the house is hard!), you might want to stop here. But even if you never intend to see it and you hate Star Wars and you just wish the hype would die already—you, on the other hand, can keep reading. You should keep reading. Because this post (like my last Star Wars post) isn’t actually about Star Wars. Not really. It’s about what it means to be bad, and what it’s like to wonder if your child could ever fall to the Dark Side. Star Wars, like all good stories, is a metaphor for real life.

Here’s to the Old School: A Thank You

I’m pretty sure she didn’t consider herself a geek.

In fact, if I had used the term to describe her in her presence, I probably would have gotten The Glare. Maybe not. Maybe I would just have earned a smile.

Because it was true. My mother-in-law was a geek, in the best sense of the word, and I offer that up as a compliment. I just wish she could here me say it. We lost her recently, a loss we’re all still coming to grips with.

I called her a force of nature more than once, and it was true. Continue reading Here’s to the Old School: A Thank You

The Force Awakens: Intertextual =/= Winkingly Referential

WARNING: This post was written keeping in mind that not everyone has seen the movie. However, the discussion does include references to information that is contained in the IMDB synopsis. It also includes comparisons between generalized character descriptions for the main characters in both A New Hope and The Force Awakens. Nothing specific to the plot is discussed in this post itself. 

Since the release of The Force Awakens, haters have been hating. A generalized series of different posts include more or less the same arguments. These arguments state, in varying ways, that The Force Awakens is nothing more than another remake taking everything from A New Hope and just tweaking it a little bit. There’s nothing original. In fact, the reliance on the source material is so huge as to be distracting. In addition, this is just another cop out in a long series of Hollywood cop outs running from originality and therefore leading to meaningless, derivative movies.**

If you subscribe to this approach to TFA, I give you warning. The following will be the Festivus of Posts, in which I air my grievances regarding the Derivative Argument. There is a difference between being derivative and being intertextual. I argue that TFA is a study in intertextuality.

Holiday Peace, Thanks to the Lego Advent Calendar

Today I give thanks for one of the few things that kept me sane over the last month and the never-ending sense of impending holiday madness.

Thank you, Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar, for giving my child a reason to get up on the cold December mornings, where it was still dark outside and all he wanted to do was stay in bed. The struggle was real, but you gave him motivation, the motivation I happily exploited to get him to school.

Thank you, Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar, for giving my son and my spouse something to bond over when both were stressed and cranky. The discussions about which planet each little figure was from put smiles on both their faces.

Thank you, Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar, for giving me five minutes of peace and quiet every day while my son was busy building and playing with each new guy, ship, or weapon. A chance to drink coffee and just be was quite possibly the greatest holiday gift given to me.

Today, we say goodbye to the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar for another year. The box will disappear, but the characters will live on, particularly because my son is creating a giant Star Wars display with everything he received over the last twenty-four days. I only hope that I will remember the joy you gave me over the month of December when in February I step on one of your adorable figures in the middle of the night.

The Force Awakens the Feminist Hero We’ve Always Wanted

As I’ve said before, my daughter loves Star Wars. I’m sure it comes as no surprise to anyone that there is a small number of female characters in the Star Wars galaxy. And at her young age, even my fledgling padawan has noticed the lack of women in the galaxy. She would rather pretend to be Luke or Anakin because they get more involved in the action of the story. (“Leia needs to be rescued and Padme dies, Mom.”) Yes, Princess, now General, Leia and Padme do get in on the action, but if we are all honest with ourselves, the boys are the ones who get to play the role of hero and save the day.

And then came Rey. Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, I am here to tell you that Rey is the feminist hero we have been waiting for all this time.

And friends, she’s not even trying.

Now, on the off chance that you have not seen The Force Awakens yet, what the heck are you waiting for?? GO. Now! Then come back and read the spoilers below!

GeekMom Holiday Gift Guide #8: Movies, TV, and Music

Holiday break is a popular time to binge watch movies and television shows, and to play music while people are off school or work. What are some of the GeekMoms’ favorite media?

Image: Arista Records

Free to Be… You and Me
Prices vary
If you were a kid in the ’70s, you may have watched or listened to Free to Be… You and Me. It was a fantastic movie, and also a record album. My mom even has the piano music book with original illustrations. The message of the project, spearheaded by Marlo Thomas, is that every child is fine, just the way they are. It’s fine to be different, it’s fine to cry, it’s fine to be a boy who likes dolls. It’s good to be nice to other people, and to be a responsible friend. These are messages that are just as important today as they were in the 1970s. Plenty of other famous people participated in the project. Kris Kristofferson, Michael Jackson, Mel Brooks, Harry Belafonte, Alan Alda, Roberta Flack, Carol Channing, Shel Silverstein, Tom Smothers, Dionne Warwick, Rosie Grier, and others all lent their skills and/or notoriety to it. Share this movie, CD, or book with your favorite children today, showing them that you love them, just as they are.

May the Fashion Be With You: My Star Wars Journey Through Clothes

Fashion and I have a tortured relationship. In fact, the closest analogy I can make is that fashion is the Kilgrave to my Jessica Jones. Fashion makes suggestions, compels me to act in ways generally against my nature, and I feel pretty miserable during and after. Whether it be Spanx or that strapless dress I was forced to wear in a wedding (look, size 32J tatas just don’t “do” strapless), I am the exact opposite of a fashionista. Thus, dressing fashionable is often my own personal nemesis.

Sometimes, choosing clothing is about more than how it looks. Clothing choices are often about feelings, how we feel about ourselves and how we feel about the way we portray ourselves. Sometimes, clothing is sentimental. I am one of the people who has memories and emotions attached to objects. My Star Wars clothes tell the journey of my introduction and adoption of the fandom. Unlike many Star Wars fans, I came to the fandom in the last few years. I also openly admit that my love of Star Wars really has more to do with the community and the ideology of Star Wars instead of the actual media.

‘The Force Awakens’: Star Wars Nail Art Tutorial

Manicures and Star Wars. Nope, this isn’t a “which one of these is not like the others” puzzle. When I randomly ran across the the Cover Girl Star Wars makeup collection of nail polish, I bought them all. OK, well, FIRST I bought the lipsticks because I also really love lipstick. Then I went back and bought all the matching polishes. Because LIMITED EDITION. I mean, that’s the nerd equivalent of a dog whistle.

The problem was that I had sort of become tangentially addicted to nail wraps because they were so much prettier! And there were designs! And it was EXCITING. However, my cheap self decided that if I had just dropped a ridiculously obscene amount of money on nail polish, I couldn’t just let it sit in a drawer. They needed to be used in a way that incorporated as many polishes as was humanly possible at one time.

This led me to my mortal crafting enemy, Pinterest.

Is ‘The Force Awakens’ Okay for Younglings?

As the first of my Facebook friends to have seen The Force Awakens, I have gotten a lot of questions about whether it is little kid appropriate. My own L is 6-years-old, precocious cognitively, but very 6 emotionally. So, my answer is:

It is kid dependent. Multiple factors have to be considered before taking your youngling to go see this movie.

Gather ‘Round, Padawans (Part Six): The Kid, The Cowboy, The Devil, and Foggy Nelson

The crew of the Ghost has been through a lot in their two seasons of existence. There has been discovery and triumph, victories and the forging of a family. There has also been tragedy and loss, frustration and shattered hope.

This week’s episode, Legacy, was well and truly heartbreaking.

Coding at the Apple Store: Our Hour of Code Experience

When Ariane pointed out that Apple was sponsoring in-store Hour of Code events this week, I hopped on the free stuff in a store bandwagon. First, let me be totally honest: $Free. is my favorite price. I will do almost anything if you tell me I’m getting a free service. When I heard that the Apple store ten minutes from my house would be providing an in-store class for kids, I couldn’t get my kid signed up fast enough.

When I heard that the Apple store ten minutes from my house would be providing an in-store class for kids, I couldn’t get my kid signed up fast enough.

Up to this point, the nearest I’d come to an in-store training at the Apple store was asking questions about my own Mac because I am committed to my fully integrated Mac environment at this point. Not knowing what to expect, I went in with low expectations because that’s pretty much how I roll. However just like with my first iPod, Apple blew me away.

Is Donald Trump Leading the U.S. Down the Path to the Dark Side?

My favorite line in the entire Star Wars prequel trilogy comes from Padmé toward the end of Revenge of The Sith. She stands in the Galactic Senate and watches Supreme Chancellor Palpatine proclaim himself Emperor of a newly founded Empire.

“This is how liberty dies,” she comments to her companions, “with thunderous applause.”

It’s a chilling line simply because we know from our own history how true it can be. Even the briefest look at the story of Hitler’s rise to power mirrors Palpatine’s own journey in many ways. Rising to power on a tidal wave of support, first elected as Chancellor before using fear to manipulate other politicians and transform the country/Republic into a dictatorship under his control alone.

The Star Wars prequels reflect our own history back at us through the lens of a galaxy far, far away and remind us of things we ought not to forget. In our post 9/11 era where we as “good citizens” are expected to throw away more and more of our personal liberties in the never-ending pursuit of the spectre of terrorism, and where increasingly oppressive politicians are growing in popularity with an increasingly scared population – perhaps the story we see across the three prequels has never been more important.

This is what I love about the Star Wars prequel trilogy. While the Original Trilogy throws us straight into the heart of an ongoing war where heroes and villains are already established, the prequels show us both how those things came to be, and how easily the road to war can be walked. In fact, if we take a look at recent news, it’s a path we can see being trodden once again – only this time it’s happening in the United States with the rise of Donald Trump.

Help Me, Obi-Wan Kenobi: Death, Survivor’s Guilt, and the Power of a Well-Timed Story

A long time ago in a neighborhood two counties away, I found two small action figures in our new house, left behind by the kids who’d lived there before.

I was five and a half—I’d been to preschool, I had older cousins, I’d seen enough to recognize the military type and the hairy brown creature as Star Wars characters. But ugh, that wasn’t my thing. I didn’t like robots and blasters, and I was frankly terrified of outer space. I much preferred my stories set in magical kingdoms with knights and princesses (nobody’d told me Star Wars actually was about knights and princesses).

I kept the two figures anyway, and incorporated them into my own playtime, and you’ll have to forgive me if I may have thought the brown hairy one was an evil monster. (The military one, it turned out, was an Imperial Officer, but I thought he was dumb-looking, and tended to make him the butt of jokes).

We’d moved here just before I had to start kindergarten, the best possible time to move since I wouldn’t have to switch schools. Ostensibly, though, we moved because my dad had gotten transferred to a new office. It just so happened to be right before I started school. It just so happened to be nearer my grandmother, who babysat more and more frequently. It just so happened to be nearer the world-renowned Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, where my toddler sister, Annie, was spending more and more time.

GeekMom Fail: My Kids Don’t Like the ‘Star Wars’ Movies

Today, just like most every geek on the planet, I am counting down the days until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters. We have tickets for the whole family and, here it comes: my kids couldn’t care less.

They’re not looking forward to it and they’d rather hang out at home. They don’t like the Star Wars movies.

I’m Doing it Wrong?: Star Wars & the Next Generation

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I was introduced to the Star Wars Universe. My introduction was at the movie theater, during the original theatrical release of Empire Strikes Back.

The year was 1980 and, in retrospect, I was probably too young. As it was, my poor father had to watch the majority of the movie through a hole in the door. I was so terrified by the removal of Darth Vader’s helmet, I made him leave the theater and refused to go back inside.

That makes me feel somewhat less guilty about the odd way I’ve introduced my daughter to Star Wars.

I was a Teenage Girl Star Wars Fan

The year was 1977. I was so close to my thirteenth birthday I could taste it.

I remember reading a preview for an upcoming movie in a teen magazine. The movie was called Star Wars. The preview breathlessly promised there was a Princess who was as much a hero as the (cute) guys.

Sign me up! My parents didn’t want to go. Since it was rated PG they forced my brother, who is five years older than me, to go along. He had just turned eighteen and was not amused. For some odd reason, he didn’t want to deal with a bunch of newly minted and *days away* teenagers. He brought along some of his friends. They sat as far away from us as was humanly possible. I can’t imagine why.

It’s easy to forget now, but the movie was not targeted at little kids. It had the aforementioned PG rating. Nor was it targeted to boys alone. No matter what JJ Abrams believes. It was positioned for broad mass appeal.

Marketing was very different back then. This was the mid 1970s after all. Smack dab in the middle of the Womens Liberation movement. Well before the 1980s FCC deregulation. Continue reading I was a Teenage Girl Star Wars Fan

Geeky Coffee Cozies to Knit and Crochet

Even though paper coffee cup sleeves are biodegradable, they still create unnecessary waste and use needed resources. Most of the time these sleeves end up in the trash instead of recycled. Why use a boring paper sleeve when you can rock a piece of geeky art work instead?

These projects are very quick to finish and require only a small amount of yarn. They make good stocking stuffers or birthday gifts. They are practical, unique, and sure to please. I use mine on both disposable and reusable cups. Here are six free patterns for coffee cozy sleeves you can knit and crochet:

Go Navy! Beat Army! Star Wars Style

As an Air Force officer, it’s really tough to take sides in the Army/Navy football battle our country participates in at this time each year. Being that I’m a huge Star Wars geek, though, I’m afraid I’ll have to root for Navy as gratitude for coming up with such a brilliant “spirit video” as the one that was uploaded this week in advance of the Army/Navy football game on December 12.

Spirit videos are a tradition at America’s service academies. Cadets and midshipmen let their creative juices flow on YouTube, showing off what’s great about their own service academies while (respectfully) ribbing their competition.

Midshipman First Class Rylan Tuohy is the creative force behind the Star Wars parody video, as well as numerous other professional-quality videos issued on behalf of the U.S. Naval Academy over the past several years

including this recent parody of the Air Force Academy, but I’ll forgive him.

Titled “STAR WARS at Navy”, this latest video takes the cake, bringing in the 3-star admiral superintendent of the Naval Academy as “Supe Solo” and the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral John Richardson, as “CNO Kenobi”. The midshipmen who took on the rules of Luke, Leia, and especially R2D2 and C3PO did a great job taking on their respective roles. The middie portraying C3PO did the walk perfectly!

Viewers will see and hear references to “the 14” in this video, which is referring to Navy trying to beat Army in football for the 14th year in a row. Viewers may also recognize a few other inside jokes, such as a reference to Army West Point’s pillow fight scandal.

May the 14 be with you!

P.S.: In the interest of full disclosure, I just discovered the Army response to the video, in which you will hear a sound byte from the above Navy video (pretty sneaky, sis!). Check it out here.

8 Ways to Celebrate ‘Star Wars’ With Your Youngest Fans

December 18th will be like a national holiday for Star Wars fans. We’ve been waiting years for The Force Awakens to arrive, and it’s hard not to get swept up in all the excitement ahead of its release.

But what about your youngest Star Wars fans, who may be too young to actually see The Force Awakens in theaters? This is so variable from family to family, as you and your kids might feel ready at different ages to head to the theater for this one.

But for those with kids who are sitting it out, how can they participate in all the fun when they can’t see the movie? Here are some ideas to celebrate Star Wars fever with them:

1.Head to a Lego store
Or Target. Or Toys ‘R Us. Anywhere they can see the awesome The Force Awakens Lego sets and maybe pick one out to ease the pain of missing out on the Big Event. Continue reading 8 Ways to Celebrate ‘Star Wars’ With Your Youngest Fans

Gather ‘Round Padawans (Part 4): Star Wars: Princess Leia Gets the Shaft

There is no question of Leia Organa’s importance to the Star Wars saga.  She’s the heart of the rebellion, uniter of farm boys and scoundrels, a brilliant tactician, a brave soldier, and a survivor.

She is, at age nineteen, when her brother is still moisture farming and whining incessantly on Tatooine, already a senator and spy.  She faces Darth Vader down when the majority of others (mostly grown men) are quaking and mewling and scraping.  She retains the ability to quip under torture.

And somehow, she still ends up with the most boring comic of the bunch, and that’s a cautionary tale for women in comics, and for all of us.

The Force Awakens…A New Set of ‘Star Wars’ Snowflakes

Graphic designer Anthony Herrera has been creating snowflake patterns for Star Wars fans since 2011, delivering a fresh batch of designs each year.

For his 2015 set, Herrera celebrates the release of the seventh film in the Star Wars saga, The Force Awakens, with seven new character designs featuring Rey, BB-8, Finn, First Order Stormtrooper, Kylo Ren, Kylo Ren Lightsaber, and Poe Dameron.

This latest bunch brings the total to 57 different Star Wars patterns from which crafty fanfolk can get cramped fingers, crossed eyes, and a big smile making.

Another recent addition is Herrera’s Guardians of the Galaxy snowflake patterns set, with all five members of the team, as well as Baby Groot and Ronan. These join his already popular set based on the animated Disney hit, Frozen. Continue reading The Force Awakens…A New Set of ‘Star Wars’ Snowflakes

Comikaze Expo Panel: Pop Culture and Parenting 2015

Comikaze Expo took place over Halloween weekend. Partnering with comic legend Stan Lee himself and Elvira Mistress of the Dark, Comikaze is the only pop-culture convention owned and operated by true pop-culture icons.

After spending time researching both local and national conventions in the United States, Regina Carpinelli, the co-founder and CCO of Comikaze Entertainment Inc., and the rest of the Comikaze team have crafted an event that will thrill and excite even the most casual comic fan.

It is the fourth year that we attending as a family. This is also the second year of being a part of the Pop Culture and Parenting panel hosted by the Geekling and Parental Units. Kendra Moras, who submitted and championed our group took on the nuts and bolts of creating this year’s experience and led with enthusiasm and charm. I, too, had the pleasure of being involved with the behind the scenes selections of the parenting panel. Helping chose the members and questions. Gathering giveaways and even recruiting my husband, Mark Cronan, to step in as the moderator.

‘Star Wars’ Lessons Part 2: ‘Kanan: The Last Padawan’

All I need to know in life I learned from Star Wars.

Well, okay, not everything, but a lot of stuff, most of which I didn’t consciously realize had penetrated my cortex until the hubs and I launched Operation: Engeekify Spawn

Now at the ages of nearly six and three, they’re experiencing a great many things for the first time, some geeky, some just life-related. Many of them good, some of them less positive, and all parts of the human experience: friendship, independence, moral ambiguity, conscious motivation, exclusion, uncertainty, and even death. Hubs’ grandmother, with whom the boy was very close, passed a couple years ago. And the son really did love (absolutely no sarcasm intended) his first fish, George Bluefin.

I wish I could protect both of them from the difficult bits, but I can’t. That breaks my heart but it doesn’t change the reality of the thing and, reaching the ripe old age of thirty-seven, I can see how those bits, both the positive and painful (you’ll note I’m not using the terms negative or bad, though it certainly does feel that way sometimes) shaped me. Though it took thirty-six of those thirty-seven years, I’m generally pretty happy with who I am.

I’d like that to happen for both of my children a little earlier in their lifespan. But these are huge, complicated topics and are difficult for many adults to verbalize to themselves and one another.

How do I explain them to beings who have, in the grand scheme, barely been evicted from the womb?

Star Wars helps.
