They really need to turn over one-sheet design to people outside the studio. That may be the best Star Wars one-sheet since the original Tom Jung. I love that it’s a take on McQuarrie’s 1976 The Star Wars.

Fully agree mate - sometimes simplicity is still best 😃

A shame there aren’t a few more retro style/based posters for the new films - a welcome nod for us… erm, older… fans… 😉

There is a studio here in Austin that does just that.

Impossible to go through them all in a post, but they’ve commissioned some spectacular pieces through the years. I’ll try to find some of the Star Wars pieces and update this post.

Don’t know what to say. I guess we had know it wasn’t exactly going look like a traditional Doctor costume…

Traditional? The Doctor’s outfits through the 54 years have been one of the least consistent aspects (which is, I think, a great thing). Cartoonish, leather jacket, understated, fur coat, Victorian, hip - they’ve been all over the spectrum.

To me, Jodie’s outfit looks fantastic. She’s a very beautiful woman and they’ve struck a great balance between mysterious time traveler and feminine style. Those high-waisted pants with a peek of shin, the partially tied boots, the long coat, all of it looks perfect to me.

For me, that’s one of the best Rogue One fan-made pieces I’ve seen yet. I don’t mean fan-made as a knock, by the way. I just don’t know how else to quantify the artwork of someone who doesn’t work for Disney directly or who’s work isn’t an official one-sheet. There are some craaazy talented artists out there.

I’m partial to Dan Mumford’s style. I’ll try to find his Rogue One piece.

Well in the Astros.

Hell yeah!!!
It’s been a craaaazy stressful post season, but we dispatched the Red Sox, the Yankees, and now the Dodgers - a rival of ours since I was a little kid. What a game. Still hasn’t sunk in yet.

Just finished it. Really dug it. For me, Jim Lee illustrating a Frank Miller story equals awesome. No spoilers, but it’s Miller’s take on the origin of Bruce and Dick becoming the team we know. Typical of Miller, it’s darker and more adult. There are a handful graphic novels I reread every year or more. This one just joined the list.

Pretty damn cool. I had no idea high end pinball machines were so expensive.

Yes, it totally has a Space Invaders vibe. I’m digging it also. Our company has a Christmas sweater competition day every December, with prizes to the best and/or most garish sweater for each floor. I feel like I’ll be in the running. We have a few nerds in the office. One fellow has a Chewie figure that must be 12 to 18 inches high on his desk. Another guy in Engineering has a one-sheet on his wall. I figure I’ll get their votes for sure.

Thanks! I figured it was well known. Yeah, the shirt is pretty much a given. It will be my first Star Wars shirt ever. I know - late to the party. 😉

I’ve been looking at shirts and sweaters lately and found two I really dig. One is a Christmas sweater (not shown) and the other is this T-shirt. Both have a ship I don’t recognize, at least not as a silhouette. I’m assuming this is due to not having seen Empire or Return in a long time. No doubt, as prominent as it is on both shirts, the board will know right away.

What ship is this?

This is a very interesting podcast taking a deep dive into the score. I thought I’d posted it already, but damn if I can find it. Anyway, very interesting stuff. I suspect I wasn’t the only one who felt\heard the cues back to the 1977 masterpiece of Williams, which I wore out the summer of 77 (and for all the years since). We’ve all heard the 77 score thousands of times probably, so I enjoy hearing analysis of the score. It’s an hour long, with the music examples starting around 15 minutes in.

There are a few rare (and claimed ‘never seen before’) pictures of Carrie Fisher from behind the scenes of Empire Strikes Back here (and a few items for sale at an upcoming auction):-

From the I haven’t watched Empire in 20 years file; I don’t even remember Treat Williams being in the movie. Some nice pictures of Carrie for sure. It’s always nice to be reminded of how beautiful she was. It will be strange watching her last film two months from now.

Awesome. I’m going to see if I can find the show on a stream somewhere. I have a vague memory of it as a little kid, but don’t know anything about it other than it was the guy from Rear Window (which I am a HUGE fan).

Are there bands for who you have all they've ever done?
Time

Man, I thought I had tons of stuff with complete catalogs. I don’t hold a candle to some folks around here. There are some who’ve never let me down, no matter what (my list) and there are some where I had to say goodbye after decades when they just didn’t speak to me anymore.

Yes is a perfect example. Ive been on board since the 1970s and have seen them probably as many times as I’ve seen Genesis and Dave Matthews. However, their last two albums (2011 and 2014) seemed to be a weird shell of their former selves. I don’t own either of them. King Crimson is another. I have nearly everything and listen often, as I do with Yes, but I just drifted to the point not wanting more about ten years ago.
