Star Wars is poetry

Darksider Blog BannerI realised something today after I spent some time looking at other people’s blogs and well, let’s just say that my blog has a long way to go before I’ll be happy with it. On a positive note, I think I’ve found a way to separate my blog content so I’ve created different banners depending on what the topic is. I’ve created a category for “personal” writing which will be the category I use to write articles like this one that is more personal and focused on writing and the writing process. My other two blog categories are mostly for SWTOR/Star Wars content specifically so anyone who is interested in those posts can search for them via tag/category.

TOR Character of the Week and Star Wars Quotes

SWTOR Blog Banner

I like to create things. Or more to the point, I like to edit things and turn them into something else or try to enhance something. I would never consider myself an artist because I can’t draw or paint. I think I’m a person that “reinvents” things. But if I do create something I always try to give credit if I am using another person’s image or artwork.

A while ago I posted a SWTOR Character Sheet on Darth Malgus. I found this quite fun to do so I am trying to get into the habit of creating more of them for my blogs/Instagram/Pinterest etc. Here’s my second attempt using Carth Onasi’s profile as the character:

CARTHONASI

I liked this one. The artist is on DeviantArt and it was the perfect image for what I wanted to do. I saw some of these images on Tumblr the other day and decided I really liked them so I am adopting this style into my own creations.

I was playing around with Instagram trying to find different ways to introduce text into static images (because that can be fun to do) and discovered android app Phonto. This app allows you to add all sorts of text-based effects to your images. So I created this one yesterday on Instagram:

Obi Wan Quote 1

It’s quite amazing how an image can be completely transformed just by adding text. This image of Obi-Wan Kenobi is awesome enough without the text, but when you add text, it becomes something else again.

The return of “ERPer” XESHI Reborn

SWTORREPORTED

I wrote a blog post recently about a certain “ERPer” (Erotic Role Player) that was causing all sorts of havoc in general chat on Dromund Kaas. I don’t mind ERPers as long as they keep their role-playing out of general chat. This particular person seems to think she can do whatever she wants when she plays including discussing sexual acts in intimate detail in a general chat channel.

SWTOR Holofile – Armour update!

SWTOR Blog BannerHello Star Wars friends! I created a new banner for my SWTOR posts so I can separate them from my Darksider Blog posts which are mostly focused on writing and personal stuff. So here’s an update on what I’ve been doing the last couple of days. My armour collection is coming along nicely as I managed to locate and buy an armour set I didn’t have in my collection: Continue reading → SWTOR Holofile – Armour update!

My personality “type” is getting the better of me… halp!

Darksider Blog Banner

Sometimes I wish I wasn’t so “A typical”. The two personality groups (A and B) are based on a popular psychological theory that we as individuals are classified as one or the other. This, of course, fails completely when you have people who share attributes from both groups, but for the sake of this blog post, we’ll just agree that they exist for now.

Do you want to know how good getting 18 likes feels?

Darksider Blog Banner 18 likes?! I have 18 likes on my last blog post and you know what? It feels … amazing! It feels like I have discovered something that’s truly my own, something that I can learn from and enjoy for as long as I continue to feed the writing demon within. It feels great. And I know it’s only 18 likes… but that’s the most likes I’ve had on this blog to date for one blog post. And after being in the writing doldrums for so long, this is a really nice change.

But I don’t wanna be just another “news” site…

Darksider Blog Banner

When I started this site, I had plans to make it into a Star Wars blog dedicated to Star Wars. That was before I decided to share this space with my SWTOR obsession and writing (fan fiction). For the most part, I think these three subjects blend well together as they integrate a lot of the things I enjoy doing. And I’ve been thinking about the direction of my blog lately and one thing is very clear – I do not want to become another Star Wars “news” blog. That is already covered and flogged to death by so many Star Wars fans. Continue reading → But I don’t wanna be just another “news” site…
