Your Weekend Creature Comforts: The Dianoga

Welcome back creature lovers. Being a fan of Star Wars marathons it is rare that I make it more than a year without rewatching these wonderful movies. And lucky for you all the movies are chuck full of incredible creatures, giving me more and more ideas of aliens to write about for Your Weekend Creature Comforts. This weekend I want to spotlight The Dianoga, a creature that scares the hell out of everyone watching A New Hope for the first time but also one that most people do not know what it really looks like… DianogaEye-ANH

Your Weekend Creature Comforts: The Geonosians

Another weekend of recovery for Lilith here, still another 3 weeks before I can return to work while my knee heals from surgery, so what did I delve in to this past weekend? Why a Star Wars Marathon of course! Sounds like the appropriate thing to do. The difference this time is I started with the prequels, which is a rarity for me. Yes, I obviously am a purist and prefer the original series, but I thought it might be time to re-watch the prequels being that I have an insane amount of free time on my hands. So today I want to talk about one of my favorite species from the prequels: the Geonosians.9-4jpzmg Read the rest of this entry

Your Weekend Creature Comforts: The Chitauri

I was watching The Avengers for probably the 12th time this week when I realized I needed to write a post on those crazy aliens that come through the Tesseract portal at the end of the film. There are many shapes and forms, and like in most superhero movies they successfully destroy over half of Manhattan. So today I am going to bring you more details than you could ever desire about this alien species known as the Chitauri.
