Fans have been hearing about the possibility of live action Star Wars television shows for decades. In November of 2019, as part of the launch of Disney’s new streaming service, we finally got one. While not on a network or even cable, The Mandalorian, is a weekly episodic series that eschews the saga of the Skywalkers and examines life in a galaxy far, far away from a different perspective.

Listen in as Dave and the Execute Chapter 66 crew (minus Beth, who was recovering from a fight with a mudhorn) discuss the premiere season of The Mandalorian on the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!

I Ya Toyah is a Chicago-based DIY one woman army of Polish descent that blends chaos and balance with the familiar vibe of industrial electronica sound. Her music melds smooth, cutting edge vocals, surreal guitars, hypnotizing beats, and multiple electronic synth elements into dark arrangements that, combined with storytelling lyrics, respond to the paranoia of everyday reality.

Listen in as Dave and I Ya Toyah talk about life, music, and hard work on the newest episode of the Needless Things Podcast!

Star Wars: The Rise of Beth’s Opinions

While those in the 9 to 5 workplace have been off enjoying holidays, and parties, and fun I just got released from two months of retail hell. Consider that the person you’re being rude to is a real human being the next time you’re shopping on Thanksgiving or Christmas Eve. By the time I got New Year’s Eve and Day off I was so tired I thought I was going to keel over before I even got to the party I was going to. I basically slept, worked, and had a drink (or three) alone before going back to sleep from mid-November through this week. I’m pretty proud of myself for getting even two posts up in December honestly. I haven’t gotten to see the last three Star Wars movies of the Skywalker saga on opening weekend. Not because I don’t love Star Wars, but because I am so sick of people by the time I get off work that I want to be as alone as possible for as long as possible. I can’t stand the idea of going to a crowded movie theater surrounded by the same jerks who just made my day hell. So since I couldn’t see The Rise of Skywalker on opening weekend I also couldn’t do the podcast Dave and the guys did the Sunday after Christmas. Even if I had I was working at 5am the next day so it would have been impossible either way.

The 5 Best Star Wars Video Games

We’ve all got Star Wars fever right now. I kind of have it all the time if I’m honest. Despite the initial bad reviews of The Rise of Skywalker I’m all in. It’s just that my life in retail hell won’t allow me to see the movie this weekend. I hope to see it sometime next week, but who knows. Until after New Year’s Day my schedule sucks. So I won’t be on the podcast Dave, Chad, Arian, and Schweck are recording this weekend. I take comfort in the fact that we will be able to start recording our podcast about Star Wars books shortly after the new year starts though. In the meantime, to help you all get even more hyped for the new movie I’ve complied a list of the best Star Wars games I’ve played. Not the best of all time, but the best I’ve played. Some of these were arcade only, some are from rather old consoles, but don’t let that stop you from picking up any Star Wars game that makes you happy to kill some time.
