This is my weekly journal. This is where one will find a glimpse into the niceties of the Expanded Universe- the quirky, intriguing, yet easily missed twists and turns of my journey.
I will continue to update this particular blog post every week, sharing the progress of my exploits. Please check back regularly for updates.

2 years BBY
Had an interesting two weeks. Went to the Comicon last week. Quite the experience. Managed to have a conversation with one of the Del Rey staffers about the newClone Wars cartoon and the continuity hellhole it created. While there was no direct comment, it will suffice to say that Del Rey does not seem pleased.
Then I got an opportunity, during the Star Wars Day panels, to ask Dave Filoni himself (director of Clone Wars) the same question. Basically, he said he doesn't feel "beholden to the continuity" and blamed George Lucas for forcing in his ideas. Far be it from me to tell Lucas what to do with his own creation.
Once I got back, I finished reading Han Solo At Stars' End. Awesome book- check out the review:http://bravingsw.blogspot.com
Next up is the rest of The Force Unleashed. Then I'll back track for a bit and read the firts two installments of the new free e-book Lost Tribes of the Sith by John Jackson Miller. I'm excited about that because this e-book is technically the third oldest piece of EU material, timeline-wise (7000-5,000 years BBY).
