My very first Star Wars Blog

Featured

Happy Saturday to my fellow bloggers!!

Whoa, I am so excited and yet intimidated to be doing this. I know that I will receive some positive feed back but also some very harsh feed back. Well, what ever your M.O. is, you are more than welcomed to share thoughts with me.

So, a little bit about myself then eh? My name is Rene P. Vinet Sr. I was born in the city of Marrero, Louisiana but, now I reside in the great state of Texas. I am 38 years old, I have 3 beautiful sons who love Star Wars as much as I do! I have a very wonderful and beautiful wife who would be the envy of Padme and Leia alike. We have been together pushing 19 years and married 18 of those wonderful years.

My love of Star Wars is what I want to share with you all. Like many of my fellow fans, it begin as a child. Return of the Jedi was the first of the saga that I remember seeing. After that, it was The Ewoks, The caravan of Courage. As a child these were the perfect two movies to start a “healthy” life long obsession with.

My love for Star Wars was brought on by a sense of abandonment. Star Wars was the only thing I actually felt loved me as a child.To understand this, I may have to fill you in on my childhood. Wait a moment, I just have to say WOW! This is such good therapy. My wife was right. She is the one who encouraged me to do this. Okay, I am back on track. So, like so many out there, daddy left before I was born. Due to my moms infidelity, he denied me as his offspring. She also had and still to this day has an addiction problem. She was very angry and manipulative. So when she would be in her bed for days, sick from withdrawal and raging, I would be in my room. My room was like my own Fortress of Solitude. I had a TV and VCR and all 3 of the original movies. I had a nice size collection of original Star Wars action figures and even the Micro Machine playsets too. Though, I sadly lost them thanks to Hurricane Katrina.

When I was being blamed for her life or just feeling sad because my father did not try to yet again reach out to me. Star Wars became my security blanket and source of my happiness. This happiness was greatly increased in 1991. I saved up all I could and purchased my first Star Wars novel. I was so proud of myself. I actually did all this work for my beloved Star Wars. That book title was Heir To The Empire by Timothy Zahn. I read this book 5 times before the next book in the trilogy was released. My love for Star Wars just went from there. I even convinced my sons to watch Star wars with me oneday and guess what? The love for Star Wars runs strong in my family. My sons have it, I have it, and, my wife has it. Oh man that was adorable! lol!

Well I want to thank each and every fan out there for helping keep Star Wars alive for me. To this day it is still my security blanket. I also want to thank any and all who take time to read my very first blog and share this moment with me. I look forward to sharing my thoughts on Star Wars and also REALLY look forward to reading your own……….

The Imperial Stormtrooper

Happy Sunday to you all! Thought I would pop in and start yet another fun-loving Star Wars conversation. Today I want to share my thoughts, as well as hearing your own thoughts on The Imperial Stormtroopers.

 

 

I remember as a kid always being kind of confused at all the dread and fear that the presence of one of these menaces would strike into the heart of the galaxy’s people.downloadfile-6 I mean come on, Luke faced down the barrel of a squad of them and came out unharmed loads of times.j29AW So what is the big deal over here? Were they truly that fearsome? Or was it all a propaganda tactic by the empire?

I found the answers to my questions in the movie Rogue One. As we all know, the Stormtrooper originated from the Mandalorian Bounty Hunter known as Jango Fett. He would be the template for the Republic Grand Army of clones.downloadfile-4 After The Chancellor announced himself the Emperor of the New Galactic Empire, The Clone Army would be renamed The Imperial Stormtroopers. Lets face it. If you have seen Attack Of The Clones or Revenge Of The Sith, than you know that the clones were the best of the best of the best. So how did this superior Corp go from wiping out the Jedi, to missing their mark 3 feet in front of them? The answer is, it was the will of the force through the prophecy of Balance.

I noticed it in Rogue One, with the introduction of Chirrut Îmwe. downloadfile-3 This blind, former Jedi(Him being Jedi is my opinion and not fact) on countless times has dispatched a number of Stormtroopers at the same time. At the climatic conclusion of the film, he walked across the battle field, blaster fire raining down all around him,downloadfile-2 and completed his task un harmed. It wasnt’ untill the will of the force was done, that he was made vulnerable again. Now, fast forward one month or so. We have Luke, Ben Kenobi, Han, Chewie, and Leia on board the Death Star moon. No wait, thats no moon. It’s a space station!(I couldn’t help myself.) So we have the very small fellowship of the force,

sneaking around the very belly of the beast. The galaxys most elite fighting force surrounding them by the thousands, and yet these few survive? tumblr_o0g0ynlHaj1sa11jco1_500

It was not luck, no way. “In my experience, there is no such thing as luck.” – Obi Wan Kenobi. It darn sure wasn’t the skill of a pair of vetern smugglers, an old jedi and his farm boy pupil, and a very hot princess.

 

It was just a very simple case of the will of the force. If you look at it as a great big game of cosmic chess, it will be easier. The force put all these pieces in place. From the birth of The Chosen one, to Luke and Leia being born, to Chirrut establishing the communication connection, to the rebel that survived long enough to ensure the plans made it safely aboard Leia’s ship, to the star destroyer not shooting down the escape pod where R2D2 and C3PO were hiding, to the Jawas selling them to The Lars homestead, to Obi Wan being right were Luke was attacked by the Tuscan Raiders, to Han shooting first, to he legion of death troopers missing their every mark, and just jumping all the way to the moment Luke denys the Emperor his will in him kiilings his own father and taking his place, to Vader killing the Emperor, to Vader dying and to Luke becoming the Grand Jedi Master. I believe Luke was the true embodiment of the force but that is for another post.

So how did I do on my second post? If it was good, or if it was bad isn’t as important as the fact that I had major fun! Hope to be reading some of your own thoughts in our Star Wars universe. Have a good day folks!
