    So how is everyone celebrating May the 4th aka International Star Wars Day this year?
    I already watched the finale of The Clone Wars this morning, and later I plan on starting Star Wars: Adventures Vol. 1. I'm also wearing a green version of this shirt.

    I'm listening to the wonderful Star Wars music of John Williams.

    I bought more minis to add to the pile of shame I already have. It's a sickness.

    Not SW related, I know, but really... I'm SWed out.

    Oh, I forgot before that I also started a second playthrough of the story mode of Battlefront II.

    There has been a live stream from a Star Wars site and featuring voice actors from Clone Wars at 8 PM.

    I watched the Clone Wars conclusion before I went to bed last night. I watched the directors roundtable about The Mandalorian. Currently watching the Rise of Skywalker. From there, either a back-and-forth re-watch of the Revenge of the Sith and the Siege of Mandalore or continuing my Rebels rewatch, which I put on hold at the beginning of the second season until Clone Wars concluded.

    This is going to sound silly, but as soon as Clone Wars concluded, the ache in my heart made me jump to the very end of the fourth episode of the second season of Rebels just to see the reunion between Ahsoka and Rex.

    Rex: Commander. You got old.
    Ahsoka: Had to happen sometime, Rex.
    *Ahsoka hugs Rex*
    Rex: I'm glad you're still alive.
    Ahsoka: You too.

    I view that scene in whole new context and emotional level now that I have that missing piece of their past.

    I watched the Mandalorian Documentary first episode today and then I reflected on the whole Star Wars thing on my facebook page. I hope everyone who is celebrating enjoyed the day.

    I had saved the final four episodes of The Clone Wars to watch for the 4th. Then I had to follow them up with "Twilight of the Apprentice" from Rebels. Oh, and I spent way too much money on SW sales at various retailers.

    The holiday is coming up on us fast. For those interested in cosplay, I have a suggestion

    While you all know about Han's Blaster:
    https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Han's_heavy_blaster_pistol

    There is a little jewel out there that was cooler--The Stack Light Rifle:

    The Sega Meanacer and Marksmen also would make for great props

    I'll be watching the premiere of Bad Batch, and maybe some of the other Star Wars content on D+.

    The same way I always celebrate May the 4th: By explaining that Star Wars day is May 25th. But wearing a Star Wars shirt (or my Solo vest) anyway.

    Oh, and watching Bad Batch.

    I'll be watching Star Trek and Stargate, just to be needlessly contrarian.

    I'll pretend I'm in a long line of people in a parking lot outside a movie theater waiting to get in.

    I'll celebrate the same as always. Say "Oh, it's Star Wars day" and then carry on as normal...
