I’ve got to get to work on the annual Christmas review. But here are some Christmas songs and skits to see you through the holiday.
Hello, everyone. Yes, I finally got out of the hospital on Friday and needed two days to recover enough to post anything. This will be my last post for the next week or so as I continue to recover from my stay. I want to be able to give you the best content I can.
So what happened? Apparently I was dealing with something called diculitus. I don’t know if that’s the right spelling because the internet gives me little on that name but will flood my search with diverticulitus which isn’t what I asked for! Stupid internet. While I still need to take antibiotic to flush it out that means I’m not completely cured yet. I also have to get use to being awake and getting my strength back. Still, I’m happy to be home.
As I stated, BW Media Spotlight and The Clutter Reports will remain on hiatus until I’m ready to give my full attention to articles, comics, and video creations. I may write a few things if I’m bored, which Patreon supporters will get to see when they’re done, while BW readers will have to wait until I have a full week of stuff to ease me back into operation.
Meanwhile, The Clutter Reports will have to wait until I’m strong enough to work on projects. I still have those two big ones I need to get done but I’m already losing optical focus as I get to this paragraph. My hope on both sites is to only be gone another week, but this is my first hospital stay since joining the blogosphere and almost a week longer than my longest hospital visits so I can’t say for certain. Hope to review again soon.

The short version: the hospital. Remember all those medical issues I’ve been having? Well, I’m in the hospital getting treated’ It will be at least next week before I report again. Hope to see you then.
In a recent Article Link, Reddit used Lumpywaroo posted the theory that Jar Jar Binks was a Sith Lord, and may have even been intended to be revealed as such by Revenge Of The Sith until the negative backlash hit. Sure it was amusing but as you read through it, it made a form of sense. Well, if that made you question the original intention of Jar Jar as the Sith equivalent of a drunken wushu master, Lockstin from web series Gnoggin expands on the original post, finding even more evidence that Lumpywaroo may have been right all along.
As in George Lucas. Courtesy of Spinoff Online the creator of that franchise you demanded he stop working on discusses what it’s like to give up his creation and the direction Abrams went in an interview with Charlie Rose. Plus other things, but I didn’t have time to watch the interview.
Chapter by Chapter features me reading one chapter of the selected book at the time and reviewing it as if I were reviewing an episode of a TV show or an issue of a comic. There will be spoilers if you haven’t read to the point I have, and if you’ve read further I ask that you don’t spoil anything further into the book. Think of it as read-along book club.
Just before the Christmas break our heroes failed to rescue Han (thus Return Of The Jedi can still start with the rescue) and a droid took over an X-Wing just to shoot Luke. When we left the burgeoning Jedi he had a blaster pointed at him by the person responsible. Will our daring hero survive this? Chapter 10 awaits.
Right now nerd culture appears to be at an all-time high. Look at the trouble Disney went to in order to get more of nerd dollars, buying both Marvel and Lucasfilm. And yet, as we go into the new year, maybe we need to check ourselves before we wreck ourselves. Cracked contributor JF Sargent looks into 6 things the nerds of 2015 need to do in order to make it through 2016. I would especially point to the second to last. It’s a pet peeve of mine as of late.
You remember my talking about how those tests were causing me grief? Well it’s still going on and my digestive system still isn’t regular. Instead it’s wiping me out. I’ll spare you the grosser details. I hope to be back in action in a few days. If you see new posts I’m back to normal. The next article will be the next installment of Chapter By Chapter. Now I’m going to see how long it takes before I have to go back to bed. I’m really sorry to keep doing this, folks.
