the book of boba fett december 2021

One of the common logistical questions coming of The Mandalorian‘s second season finale was an understandable asking of when its third season would arrive. You know, given that The Book of Boba Fett was announced for December 2021. And furthermore, was The Book of Boba Fett a stand-in for Mando’s third adventure? Well friends, we got our goddamn answer. The Book of Boba is dropping next December, and a third season of The Mandolorian will follow. Uh, sometime.

Weekend Open Bar: The Cold War Is Heating Up Again!

weekend open bar the cold war is heating up

The Cold War is heating up again, motherfuckers! Meanwhile the heat is colding up again, motherfuckers! Man, that was awkward-as-fuck. What I’m trying to say, and failing mind you, is that it’s getting a bit frigid here on the Northeastern Arm of the Empire. But, that ain’t all bad news! With the temperature dropping, and the sun setting, it’s the perfect excuse to stay inside this weekend. Boot-up the PlayStation 5, load-up the new Call of Duty (and Miles Morales) and just be a sack of comfy, cozy shit!

In-between gluttonous play sessions, I hope to spend some time with you fucks here at the Open Bar! I got the hearth going, the suds on tap, and the high-fives primed to be dispensed! Let’s hang the fuck out! Tell me, what are you dudes up to this weekend?

Watching The Mandalorian? Rocking some pre-expansion World of Warcraft? Eating an exorbitant amount of food, happily ensconced in sweatpants and a blanket?

Let’s hang the fuck out.

Monday Morning Commute: A Cascade of Comfort

Seven years ago today, I wrote a Monday Morning Commute where I was getting excited for the PlayStation 4. It was titled “A Cascade of Nonsense” and captured how stoked I was! Now, I’m writing an MMC getting excited for the PlayStation 5. Mamma mia, right? This place has been around for a long, long time. And I’m glad it is, to serve as a community and a chronicling of my adventures and excitements.

Small comforts in big times, my friend. They’re the only way I’m navigating this minefield of civic unrest, worldwide sickness, and Zoom classrooms. For if we can’t find them, then what? Doom! Gloom! Madness!

So, I’m about to tell you what I’m excited for this week. Then, I hope you’ll hop into the comments section and give me your own run down.

This is Monday Morning Commute. On a Wednesday. Live from the Space-Ship Omega.

Let’s do this.

Ain’t this a hardline to make me completely fucking torqued. The Mandalorian S2‘s action is going to be particularly glorious, as the show brought in Extraction director Sam Hargrave to help out with it. And if you’ve seen that flick, you know that dude can build a fucking action sequence.

‘The Mandalorian’ Season 3 is already happening at Disney. Like, no shit, right?

The Mandalorian Season 2 ain’t dropped yet! But, that hasn’t dropped Disney from beginning work on a season 3! It makes all the sense in the world, given the fact that The Mandalorian has managed to unify all the disparate parts of Star Wars fandom for the first time in a hot minute.
