Jordan Peterson.

Jordan Peterson is a lot to take in.  He appears to ramble, but that is because he has much to say.  He looks at humanity on a kind of systems level, which is how do people function together and what values do they have?  He ties this to how mythology reflects the values that make society work.

It takes effort to understand Jordan Peterson, but he is fascinating to listen to.

Star Wars The Clone Wars NEW Official Trailer

Loved this animated series, but they never finished it, instead choosing to make Star Wars Rebels, which started out good and finished astonishing well.

Based on this, it looks like they are finishing The Clone Wars. About damn time.

The Sound of Silence

Heard this young artist in another video, so I made an attempt to find the original. She has a fantastic voice, and this is a pretty interesting interpretation of "The Sound of Silence."

Star Wars Old Wounds Adapted from Aaron McBride's 'Star Wars: Old Wounds' (Dark Horse Comics, 2005)

The Star Wars Rebels TV series did something similar to this, but actually much better.  It follows a plot line from the previous Star Wars Clone Wars TV series where Darth Maul had survived after being cut in half in The Phantom Menace.

However, this video is based on 2005 comics that are no longer considered canon.  After Disney bought Lucasfilm they discarded the "Expanded Universe" of comics and books and declared them to no longer be canon.  Instead they declared them "legends" so as to develop a new set of canon books and comics.

Webpage of Youtube shooter

For about a year there has been an issue over Youtube "demonetizing" content providers, which is taking away advertising revenue from anyone on youtube who may be in the slightest way controversial.  This demonetization has mostly hit conservative presenters, because apparently Youtube has been attacking "alt-right" content, or anyone who remotely resembles the "alt-right."  (BTW, the term "alt-right" only initially meant alternative media sources that are ultra conservative, like Breitbart which invented the term, but this term got co-opted by racist groups.  As a result, now the term is only used pejoratively to imply racism, with people on the left using the term to attack conservatives.)

Why the new Star Wars trilogy is dead, and how it could have been better.

I didn't want to watch the entire 36 minute video, but his comments up to 9 minutes are dead on. 

Maybe this is beating a dead horse, since all the flaws of The Last Jedi have been pointed out ad nauseam by youtube posters.

I have commented on several videos that I think that it is possible for a movie to have many obvious flaws and still be entertaining.
