Book/Star Wars Nerd. When I was younger I loved video games but I slowed down on that. Decolonization Nerd as well.
They used to call me Obi Wan, but know everyone knows me as Ben.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
Star Wars books are number one, The Hobbit, Dracula, Frankenstein, and John Green naturally.
Die Ärzte sind die beste Band der Welt. Marvin Gaye, A Tribe Called Red, Die Toten Hosen, Foo Fighters, Hank Green, Johnny Cash, Michael Jackson, The Smiths, Wir sind Helden, Juli, anyone else with a nice voice/ coolio sounds.
For movies I would say anything not from today's Hollywood.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
The entire Star Wars universe.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
When did you start watching the Vlogbrothers?
Make up your own DFTBA initialism!
Darwin forgot to bring animals. Darth fugging Tyranus beat Anakin.

I'm going to read the books you recommended, (thought it will probably take a while before I actually finish them), and then I'm going to come back here and comment what I thought of them, at which point you should tell me if the Lando Calrissian trilogy was any good.
So I'm new to the ning, but I joined a SW group and you had asked (yes, over a year ago, I apologize) if anyone recommended any Star Wars books, games, ect and I had to reply just in case you hadn't played it yet. Knights of the Old Republic I and II (specifically one though, game two is glitchy because it was rushed for a Christmas deadline).
But yeah, I know that this is random and very late, but it's a brilliant story.
