The Place to Go for Emotional Support
Time

Jetrell asked me to relay a message.


Darth Solo, I too have a 12yr old daughter, and for me this hits home closer than you know. Sincerest condolences from my family to yours during this most troubling time. You and your family are in our thoughts and we send our hearts and thoughts of strength and comfort, as well. Maddy is safe and sound awaiting your arrival for the next part of life’s endless journey.

Take care my friend. Peace be with you and yours.

I can scan 126 😃

Okay, but can you extract detail from really murky negatives? IIRC, the flash cube on my camera actually misfired a lot. I would imagine digital scanning could pull stuff out of them the local Kmart photo dept. couldn’t in 1987.

We’re still going to be the fly in their ointment.

Would they have really gone back and redone the 2011 changes in 4K?

And?

An unemployed game writer with no prospect of future employment who posts Star Wars memes on twitter all day, might just be a poster or lurker on a Star Wars-centric forum.

We’re not the only SW forum out there, and we’re kind of a niche forum at that.

Great idea for a topic!

I was there, but only for a few hours sadly. (I did sign the card.) Was that hotel laid out like a labyrinth or what? 😉

Instead of one huge dealer’s room, it was a lot of small dealer’s rooms. I’m still not sure I found them all. One memory I have is examining a beautiful light saber replica as someone else was looking over my shoulder at it as well. (This dealer had some impressive Trek prop replicas too, back before Paramount got ugly about such things.) I pressed the power button on the saber, and they jumped out of the way. Silly guy thought it was going to work. 😛

Not sure where my photos are. They’re on the long dead Kodak 126 film format, which might be problematic to get scanned today. I mostly took pics of the prop room display. There were Raiders props on display too. It’s amazing to me you could just walk up and touch the Ark of The Covenant. (And an Artoo Detoo.) And of course, every wise guy was opening the lid. AFAIK, nobody had their face melted off.

The only items I still have for sure are the 10th anniversary poster, and the official T-shirt, which amazingly still fits this old Wookiee. I mostly kept that shirt stashed away. I’ve worn it to my first screening of TFA and again when I saw the 70mm IMAX version.

Requesting invites to private torrent sites (i.e. Myspleen)

Hello there! I am looking for a version of The Phantom Menace with the voices on a separate audio track (or with just no voices at all) for a fan project for the film. What we are doing is dubbing the film and emulating “backstroke of the west” - if you haven’t seen it already, watch it on youtube now! Our trailer is almost complete, but now we need this version of the film and have had no luck with the various other torrent websites. If you have a version as specified earlier we would appreciate it a lot if we could be invited to whatever torrent site has this version of the film.

Thanks,
The r/prequelmemes discord

You might have better luck posting this in the fan edit section.

Some elements are in the video and others generated by the game itself. I only ever played it in Las Vegas back in the 80’s. I could have sworn the one I played had Clint’s actual voice throughout.

I feel like watching that too long could give me a seizure! I guess the way the disc is formatted helped avoid the blank screen issue other LD games had sometimes when accessing the next required video sequence.

Too bad the Battlestar Galactica LD game they were working on never made it past a prototype.

If they can blow off George’s sequel ideas, and bury the release of his last project, it doesn’t seem that the mouse is under any obligations to him at all.

Except maybe skipping the lines at Disneyland. 😉

The space 1999 footage would definitely qualify as they are unused or longer shots it would seem I will add it on now.

Ok let’s keep not of Battle Star Galactica for now.

One title I am highly suspicious of is Death Race and it’s sequel Death Race 2. I am almost certain the sequel uses loads of unused footage from the original films car chases and the splicing is so quick in the sequel it feels strung together with a bunch of deleted material somewhat.

You mean Death Race 2000?
