K-2SO would be my favorite Star Wars newcomer...well, I wasn't exactly wrong, per se, I think it's fair to say that, as of this moment, K-2SO is now my favorite droid in Star Wars, but he didn't end up being my favorite newcomer after all...that title goes to one Baze Malbus, the realistic, modern brawn to Chirrut Îmwe's more antiquated, spiritual brains (though Chirrut certainly brought a good bit of brawn to the party as well). Though not featured as prominently as, if you ask me, any of the other members of the main group, Baze makes his screen-time count by delivering some great lines and by flawlessly executing the best scene in the movie: avenging Chirrut's death by decimating the Death Troopers before joining his dear friend in the Force...that's my favorite scene from Rogue One, and that's all I have to say about it, so, thanks for reading, hope you come back for more! No, I'm just kidding, I didn't leave you hanging, there's more, c'mon!

Have no fear, though, friends, as I intend to carry on writing my insightful and witty (I think they're insightful and witty, anyway) Star Wars posts here, and my Star Wars comic discussions on a new blog I'm going to start for The Weekly Scoundrel. Hopefully I'll be able to get all the old posts exported over, but, worst case scenario, I'll just copy and paste them, so they'll all be available eventually, and I'll be making a group post soon for the comics I've missed recently (since I'm sure you've been patiently waiting to know what I think about them).
In addition, I'll be adding a podcast to my Star Wars repertoire early this year: the Hyperspace PodBlast! It's going to be a 30-minute, weekly show that'll focus on characters and story, as well as tons of speculation and theories about the future of the Star Wars universe. Initially, it'll be myself, a life-long Star Wars über-nerd, and a female co-host that's only recently become a fan of the galaxy far, far away, so there will definitely be two distinct points of view, but I'm also going to be inviting other Star Wars fans to come on and pose questions or topics so we can talk about them together; I want the podcast to be interactive and more about what other people want to talk about since my blog is, as the name implies, all about what I want to talk about. So, if you'd be interested in joining in with a question, topic, or being on, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get the ball rolling.
So, while last year was a tough one in many respects, I enjoyed my blogging portion of it and am looking forward to carrying that on this year, as well as adding the new podcasting element. I hope at least one person reading this is keen on keeping up with me, and I hope to be talking to that person (and several more 'cause, I mean, c'mon, let's be honest, I'm great...okay, I know, I'm average...I was trying self-confidence...it didn't fit) on the Hyperspace PodBlast! sometime soon! Huzzah exclamation points! Anyway, all the best this year, and may the Force be with you (even if you don't keep up with me...see, I'm nice, you should totally check out my other Star Wars offerings)...
