    Magical Mindset Moments

    Remember that time that a rebel blew up the Death Star? No, not the second time. Or the third time.  The first time when the OG not-yet-Jedi, Luke Skywalker, delivered the mother of all Hail Marys with only the Force and an assist from Han and Chewie to help him? It's all fanfare (big love to John Williams) and destiny and how brave, how lucky, one in a million shot, kid. But - wait - was it actually any of those things? Or was Luke just incredibly prepared because he had been bored out of his skull on Tatooine for 19 years? (That's a lot of time for target practice. Just ask the Womprats.) In this episode of the Magical Mindset Moments Podcast, we're going to explore what this moment holds for us down on Earth really, really right now in a galaxy that is very, very here-ish.

    [School of Everything Else 2022] There are two things about Star Wars that seem endemic, inextricable from the process of engaging with the multitude of stories that have emerged over the many years since 1977. One is that we always seem to return to Tatooine. It ties in with the fact that Star Wars plays on nostalgia. Even as early as 1983's Return of the Jedi they were bringing us back to that sand planet only actually named out loud at the tail end of The Empire Strikes Back. That movie also continued the long procession of Death Stars. But if we accept that these touchstones will mean that many people's first Star Wars will feature Tatooine, we can accept that this nostalgia and going back to that feeling when you were a kid, and could get excited about all sorts of things, that's the source of its power. George's movie was itself based on his own nostalgia for spacefaring adventure, cowboys and samurai.  The other element that one must accept if one is to be at peace with Star Wars is that as that multitude of stories emerge over the years of our lives we are going to encounter not just one but a cluster over a period of time that disappoint us and make us feel like this saga has lost its way and isn't for us any more. But inevitably if that love was there to begin with, something will come along and surprise us in a good way.  And for us that was Obi Wan.  Guests: Chris Finik @finmonster09 who assembles New Century's TV Tropes Pages and who writes fanfic (including a Dark Tower / Tiger's Eye crossover) Austin Wilden @WC_WIT of Wits-Writing

Well, you're probably thinking of it right now, but do you ever think about prana during an average day? As Eric reveals this session, prana is only drawn to you when you think about it. Think of yourself as the Death Star (minus the Darkside, of course). Prana is the Millennium Falcon and your awareness is the tractor beam. When you become aware of the prana, it is drawn to you. There are endless oceans of prana surrounding us. The understanding you'll gain in this session will allow you to effortlessly tap into these vast oceans of spiritual energy.Like this episode?

    Resoundcast - the branding podcast from Resound, a creative agency

    How do you truly connect with your brand's audience? Through story. Great stories stick with us...and the reason why is no great mystery. They resonate. From Star Wars and The Godfather to the plays of William Shakespeare, a great story survives time and change because for audience after audience, something true and potent sunk in. Star Wars and Brand Story That is, if we break apart the plot of the first Star Wars film, we see a template of events that are millennia old — a young hero who yearns for adventure is pried from home after a trusting guide, and a chaotic chain of events thrusts him into the innards of the Death Star itself. The events are both deeply familiar and yet invigorating...because, on some level, we see our own life parallel the hero's quest. So we watch. Story Involves and Motivates Your Brand's Audience In other words, stories like Star Wars don't exist in a vacuum. They land, and land well, with their brand's audience...and with subsequent generations of audiences who love the story so much they consume fan fiction, dress up for conventions, and in some countries, lobby to make Star Wars an official religion. If you're just joining us, don't worry. This article isn't part of a Star Wars series and we won't be talking about the new Obi-Wan show. Rather, it's a series on authentic B2B branding...and my point is that potent brands reach people with the posture and messaging of a timeless classic story. If you're just joining by the way, you can read more about how the elements of a brand that guides its customer (the hero), mesh with the elements of story here. https://youtu.be/jgXdwIebNHA The Final Piece of Your Branding Effort Riffin' on story brings me right to the heart of it. On the top of the branding pyramid, way above the foundation of a true, authentic purpose —  and above the narrowing, rising layers of personality, metaphor, archetype, history, location, and brand story — we find a sharpened, or…if we're still talking pyramids, a crudely sharpened capstone. As magnificent as it may look, the whole structure is pointing at something: Your brand's audience. Every author knows that when you're telling a story, you need to pay attention to your brand's audience. The same applies for a large corporation, a regional B2B branding agency like Resound, and your own company. Who's your brand's audience? Which hero are you aiming to guide to the finish line? While most companies have a good, or even a statistically sharpened understanding of who they're trying to reach, the question is worth asking again, and as simply as possible, from a brand and brand story perspective. Your Brand's Audience Squared You might respond that I'm forgetting one thing — your brand or company has more than one audience. Take it easy. If you've got more than one audience, (or more than one product), you're in good company. In fact, even if you create one product or offer one service, you've probably got a few audiences already in the bag. When we think of any given brand story, four distinct audiences come to mind: Your customers (or clients, or whomever you serve) Your employees (or volunteers, or members, or whoever is on your ‘team') Your investors (or partners, or shareholders, or whoever your biggest stakeholders are) Your community (the people who share your location, geographically or otherwise) Depending on your type of organization, the specifics of each of your brand's audience will vary, but the categories will remain roughly the same. For instance, a non-profit doesn't have shareholders, but it does have donors who make a financial investment. An ethnic grocery chain's “community” may not only be its neighborhood, but also the ethnic community in the city in which it plays a role...and that “community” probably includes other competing businesses in the grocery industry. Who You're Pitching To For each audience,

    On the June 22, 2022 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editorial director Peter Sciretta is joined by /Film editor Brad Oman and /Film writer and Star Wars expert Bryan Young to have a spoiler-filled discussion about Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 6. Opening Banter:    In The Spoiler Room: Obi-Wan Kenobi Episode 6 FeedbackChad from New Orleans writes in “the new cone-shaped droid from Kenobi episode 5 appears to be the winner of the "Build My Droid" contest that ran in 2019. Fans were able to submit their droid designs, and the winner would be used in a future project. Here is the official Star Wars website article with pictures of the winner. Just thought it was a cool bit of trivia that you guys might appreciate.” Greg, New Orleans: “During the climax of episode 5 when Reva is crawling on the ground and finds the communicator, she first finds her lightsaber. During the fight Vader broke her lightsaber in half, but now it appears to be whole. Did anyone else notice this mistake, or am I missing something?” Patrick D: “ So I just finished listening to your episode discussing this week's episode of Kenobi. My question for you is about Vader and him finding out about Luke and Leia. I haven't read any of the Doctor Aphra comics yet, but I did recently listen to the Doctor Aphra audiobook and thought it was fantastic. In this story, Aphra meets Vader for the first time after the destruction of the first Death Star. Vader uses Aphra to help him with different missions and investigations. The thing Vader becomes fixated on and asks Aphra to help with is finding out more info on Luke Skywalker. Vader, as well as Aphra, eventually figures out that Padme gave birth to a son before her death and that Luke is Vader's son. If Vader doesn't find out about Luke until after episode IV, then he can't find out about the kids in next week's episode.

    Star Wars (retroactively titled Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope) is a 1977 American epic space opera film written and directed by George Lucas, produced by Lucasfilm and distributed by 20th Century Fox. It stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Cushing, Alec Guinness, David Prowse, James Earl Jones, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew. It is the first film in the Star Wars film series and fourth chronological chapter of the "Skywalker Saga". Lucas had the idea for a science-fiction film in the vein of Flash Gordon around the time he completed his first film, THX 1138 (1971), and began working on a treatment after the release of American Graffiti (1973). Star Wars takes place "a long time ago", in a fictional universe inhabited by both humans and various alien species; most of the known galaxy is ruled by the tyrannical Galactic Empire, which is only opposed by the Rebel Alliance, a group of freedom fighters. The narrative of the film focuses on the hero journey of Luke Skywalker (Hamill), an everyman who becomes caught in the galactic conflict between the Empire and the Rebellion after coming into possession of two droids, R2-D2 (Baker) and C-3PO (Daniels), the first of whom is carrying the schematics of the Empire's ultimate weapon, the Death Star. While attempting to deliver the droids to the Rebellion, Luke is joined by wizened Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi (Guinness), who teaches him about the metaphysical power known as "the Force", cynical smuggler Han Solo (Ford), his Wookiee companion Chewbacca (Mayhew), and Rebellion leader Princess Leia (Fisher). Meanwhile, Imperial officers Darth Vader (Prowse, voiced by Jones), a Sith Lord, and Grand Moff Tarkin (Cushing), the commander of the Death Star, seek to retrieve the stolen schematics and locate the Rebellion's secret base. After a turbulent production, Star Wars was released in a limited number of theaters in the United States on May 25, 1977, and quickly became a blockbuster hit, leading to it being expanded to a much wider release. The film opened to critical acclaim, most notably for its groundbreaking visual effects. It grossed a total of $775 million (over $550 million during its initial run), surpassing Jaws (1975) to become the highest-grossing film at the time until the release of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982). When adjusted for inflation, Star Wars is the second-highest-grossing film in North America (behind Gone with the Wind) and the fourth-highest-grossing film in the world. It received ten Oscar nominations (including Best Picture), winning seven. In 1989, it became one of the first 25 films that was selected by the U.S. Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".[5][6] At the time, it was the most recent film in the registry and the only one chosen from the 1970s. In 2004, its soundtrack was added to the U.S. National Recording Registry, and was additionally listed by the American Film Institute as the best movie score of all time a year later. Today, it is widely regarded by many in the motion picture industry as one of the greatest and most important films in cinema history. The film has been reissued multiple times with Lucas's support—most significantly with its 20th-anniversary theatrical "Special Edition"—incorporating many changes including modified computer-generated effects, altered dialogue, re-edited shots, remixed soundtracks and added scenes. The film became a pop-cultural phenomenon and launched an industry of tie-in products, including novels, comics, video games, amusement park attractions, and merchandise including toys, games, clothing, and many other spin-off works, including two anthology films and various television series. The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983) followed Star Wars, rounding out the original Star Wars trilogy. Prequel and sequel trilogies that round out the "Skywalker saga" have since been released.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wars

Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars universe. He is a Jedi Master and a General in the Rebel Alliance. He is also one of the few characters to appear in all three of the Star Wars trilogies. Born on the planet Stewjon, Obi-Wan was taken to Coruscant to be trained as a Jedi by Master Yoda. He became a Padawan under the tutelage of Qui Gon Jinn and served with him for many years. When Qui Gon was killed by Darth Maul, Obi-Wan defeated Maul and took on his former master's apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, as his own. Obi-Wan served the Republic for many years until Anakin turned to the dark side and became Darth Vader. Obi-Wan fought Vader in a duel on Mustafar and was left for dead. He went into exile on Tatooine, where he watched over Luke Skywalker, Anakin's son. When the Empire began a massive attack on the Rebel Alliance, Obi-Wan came out of retirement to help Luke get the Death Star Plans to Leia's Father Bail Organa on Alderaan, but was killed aboard the Death Star by Darth Vader. Obi-wan helped Luke from beyond the grave, and in doing so, helped the cause of The Rebel Alliance to overthrow the Empire. We want to hear from you!

    “HOKEY RELIGIONS AND ANCIENT WEAPONS…"“On this week's episode, we finally get to talk the about the one that started it all: Star Wars (1977). Or rather: Star Wars: A New Hope. In 2022, the film is celebrating its 45th anniversary and we thought now would be the best time to revisit the film and see how it holds up. We begin by talking about our earliest memories with the film, from how we first watched and loved it as children to how we remember it today. We go into the box office success, and how this is still one of the highest grossing films of all time after adjusted for inflation.From there, we cover the entire story, beginning with the iconic introduction with John William's score with the yellow text scrolling by, leading into an action-packed shootout and the introduction of one of the greatest villain in cinema history: Darth Vader.We talk about the extended sequence in Tatooine, where we are introduced to Luke Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi. What's surprising about this is how long this section truly is, and how it focuses on developing each of our characters and developing this universe, showing us how this universe's underbelly or villainy and scum, to the outsiders like the Tusken Raiders and Jawas. And we cover the introduction another set of legendary characters, Han Solo and Chewbacca. We talk about how these scenes from the film on Disney+, actually differ from when we originally saw them on our home video VHS tapes. During the Death Star, we focus the relationships between out three main leads, Han, Luke, and Leia, and how future installments don't quite reach the same level with their characters. And all this leads us to the finale, with an epic space battle that combines groundbreaking computer graphics and practical camera work to deliver one of the greatest climaxes in cinema history.On the next episode, we will talk about how George Lucas wrote and re-wrote and re-wrote Star Wars. We will get into how over the years the versions of the films have changed (and address an error made in the episode.) We will get into the troubled production and how the film we love was created in the editing room. We will talk about the impact Star Wars has had not just on us but on movies in general, and of course, we will get into our trademark quote section where we summarize how we feel about the film using one of its quotes.This is where the fun begins!Music is from Triune Digital and audio clips pulled from movies we will be reviewing in other episodes.Artwork by @jannelle_o

(Revelation 21:1)Countless sermons and songs have convinced us of this half-truth about heaven:Half-Truth #2: Earth is our temporary homeIt is true that when we die, our “spirit returns to God” (Ecclesiastes 12:7), departing earth to be with Jesus in what theologians call the “present heaven.” The lie is that we stay there.One of Jesus's most famous references to heaven is in John 14:2 where he says, “In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.” Get this: The Greek word for “dwelling places” is monē, which denotes temporary lodging.Why temporary? Because God's plan all along was to bring heaven to earth and live with us here! Not ultimately to “fit us for heaven to live with thee there.” This is what we see in Revelation 21:1-5 as John “saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven” to earth where God “will dwell among [us].”But wait, Jordan, I thought the earth was going to be destroyed in the end? This idea is rooted in a misinterpretation of 2 Peter 3 which I discussed at length a few weeks ago. In case you missed that, here's the gist: The earth will not be obliterated like the Death Star in Star Wars. It will be renewed like Te Kā turning back into Te Fiti in Moana. Haven't seen these great films? No worries. John Mark Comer explains this concept well without cinematic metaphor: “Heaven is not our home. Earth is. Not Earth as it is now, but Earth as it will be in the future. Our hope isn't for another place, but another time. Yes, as followers of Jesus, we go to heaven when we die, but we don't stay there. If Jesus is a “ticket to heaven,” as the preacher says, then he's a round-trip ticket, not a one-way. Because at the resurrection, we come back.” All of this brings us to the next whole-truth:Whole-Truth #2: Earth is our temporary home until it is our permanent oneWhat does this mean for our work? Randy Alcorn, in his terrific book, Heaven, explains that “When we think of Heaven as unearthly, our present lives seem unspiritual, like they don't matter. When we grasp the reality of the New Earth, our present, earthly lives suddenly matter. Conversations with loved ones matter. The taste of food matters. Work [matters]....Why? Because [these things] are eternal.”Believer, lean into the work you do today, knowing that just like this earth, it has eternal consequence.

    Derrick and Harry talk about Obi-Wan Kenobi and how excited they are about the new show coming out soon on May 27th on Disney+ Obi Wan Kenobi is one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars universe. He is a Jedi Master and a General in the Rebel Alliance. He is also one of the few characters to appear in all three of the Star Wars trilogies. Born on the planet Stewjon (I remembered it!), Obi Wan was taken to Coruscant to be trained as a Jedi by Master Yoda. He became a Padawan under the tutelage of Qui Gon Jinn and served with him for many years. When Qui Gon was killed by Darth Maul, Obi Wan defeated Maul and took on his former master's apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, as his own. Obi Wan served the Republic for many years, until Anakin turned to the dark side and became Darth Vader. Obi Wan fought Vader in a duel on Mustafar and was left for dead. He went into exile on Tatooine, where he watched over Luke Skywalker, Anakin's son. When the Empire began a massive attack on the Rebel Alliance, Obi Wan came out of retirement to help Luke destroy the Death Star. He then continued to fight against the Empire, until he was killed by Darth Vader on the planet Endor. We want to hear from you!

    What do earthquakes, tsunamis, the Cuban US embassy attack, and mind control all have in common? They were all caused by a nefarious military machine called HAARP. Allegedly. There is no end to the list of global conspiracies supposedly caused by HAARP, but is there any truth behind the stories? Or are they just a product of the internet's imagination? More importantly, is any of this actually paranormal?
