Microcast: First impressions of ”Rogue One”

Listen to my first impressions of ”Rogue One”.

This is very much not a cohesive review. It’s me saying ”random” thoughts about the movie less than ten minutes after I watched it for the first time.

Lightsaber battles are as fun and fantastic in real life


Star Wars Rebels is bringing back one of the Expanded Universe’s greatest villains

“One of the most famous villains of the Star Wars universe is coming back: Grand Admiral Thrawn.”


More Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales

As I’ve mentioned earlier, Iris and me have been watching Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales. I was really entertained by the first episode and found it hilarious at times. Unfortunately the rest of the episodes where not as great. The plot of the show is just an excuse to let Threepio retell episodes I – […]

I saw The Force Awakens a second time, this time in IMAX 3D

Once again there will be spoilers for Star Wars, The Force Awakens. A few weekends ago my brother, his girlfriend and me went to see The Force Awakens in the IMAX theater at ”Mall of Scandinavia” in Stockholm. It was an interesting experience since it’s the first feature film that I ever saw in iMax […]

Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales is great

In a way the headline says it all, but allow me to elaborate. For the past week, and for the coming months, I’m on paternity leave with Iris. So far we’ve had a good week and I think things will only get better as I tie up a few loose ends from work and can […]

Celebrating my 30th birthday with Star Wars – Episode VII: The Force Awakens

I’ve loved Star Wars for twenty one years. That’s a lot shorter time than some other fans have but also a lot longer time that other fans. It is not meant as a metric of how much more or less a fan I am than other people, just a way of saying Star Wars and […]

Some awesome things

This is just at quick post to share some awesome robotics stuff on YouTube. Yesterday I took a long walk with Iris and while she slept I listened to a whole bunch of episodes of the silly podcast Robot or Not?. It’s really silly, and funny, and great, and if you have any interest in […]

I once thought that ”Revenge of the Sith” was almost as good as the original Star Wars movies. Boy, was I wrong!

För övrigt oerhört häftigt att en ny Star Wars film har premiär på min trettioårsdag!!!

Jag hade helt missat att biljetterna till ”The Force Awakens” släpptes häromdagen men nu är det bokat till 15:00-föreställningen.

Det blir allt svårare att hålla sig spoiler-fri för The Force Awakens. 

My initial impressions of Teaser #2 for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

When I’m writing this I’ve seen Teaser #2 for Star Wars: The Force Awakens just three times, slowly play-pausing my way through a forth viewing. I write this before listening to The Incomparable #243: Find My Lightsaber. I’m really looking forward to hearing what Jason, John, Serenity and Dan thinks about it and I’m sure […]

Oh. Fuck. Yeah!!!!

Teaser #2 for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out and Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God!!!

I promised myself that I should not get my hopes up too high, last time I had high hopes for a new Star Wars movie it didn’t turn out well, but I don’t think it’s possible for me to hold myself back. Once I’m seated in the theater and hear the music begin and the logo fade away I’ll be like a child on christmas.
