Ranking the Star Wars films
Time

I found this video to be of merit when talking about the supposedly ‘Mary Sue’ / overpowered / SuperRey claims about Rey (amongst other criticism of characters) in The Force Awakens…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4iqN68PejEc

(^ It is a ‘response video’ to someone claiming the usual ‘Ray is a Mary Sue’ opinion - along with that TFA was anti-male and anti-family. Some interesting and well made points in there from Shaun 😃)

They are back at again https://www.ebay.com/itm/Star-Wars-Original-Trilogy-Despecialized-Edition-3-Blu-Ray-Set-SEALED-BRAND-NEW/162760838011?hash=item25e54d4b7b:g:FvoAAOSwIFtZ~TN1

No longer available - seems someone must have reported them.

Should be interesting to see how long it is before it re-appears back on ebay for sale again…

When I go to that link it’s still there but listed as “Sold”? 😕

.Val

Ah, gotcha. I thought it may may have been taken down as it the original link was a ‘relisting’ and there was no option to buy one at the time - and when I clicked on the ‘other sellers’ items’ there was no Despecialized Editions on sale (though sadly there is of as now)…

A Star Wars USB Drive Box, Case, Tape, Tin, Frame, Figure & Cover Thread...
Time

^ Sweet they are mate, nice one 😃

Top idea in re-using your old Star Wars watch box as a usb drive holder too!
 

If you have a spare ikea-style pic frame those ‘Complete Saga’ pics may also be a good fit for that? (always good to have options 😃)

(I just rest the small usb drive on the bottom ledge)

 

 

My next ‘project’…

Saw the idea on https://www.geeky-gadgets.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/VHS-Tape-External-Hard-Drives_1.jpg

^ these are seemingly no longer for sale. Yet the premise seems cool…
 

Got a spare blank vhs tape and a spare (or reprinted or bought from ebay etc) Star Wars cover?

Want to gut the blank vhs tape to house a portable USB external hard drive in it - with a load of Star Wars content on?

I’ve no idea on how to do it (without likely visiting A&E or cutting myself) - but will soon hopefully work it out… 😃

Will likely take some ideas from this ‘vhs to folding pencil case’ video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lHzwhPxvBY
 

(You could just slap a Star Wars sticker onto a portable USB hard drive too - though that seems far too easy and maybe not quite as much fun… 😉)

 

 

There is also the making an old vhs tape into a nightlight / lamp too:-

^ from https://www.etsy.com/shop/NancysJars

or how to make one yourself - http://www.instructables.com/id/VHS-DECORATION-LAMP/

… but one thing at a time 😉

Are The Prequels That Bad?
Time

Possessed said:

I mean yeah if I’m using some sort of beach/campground shower I’ll wear sandals…

I find if wearing sandals when the Prequels are on tv… the sandals slow my approach to the remote control to turn the channel over 😉

I don’t like sandals.

(which is incidentally the actual line in AOTC that Hayden was meant to deliver - though no one on set noticed - or cared, so he went on a monologue about granules of sand getting in his sandals…)

someone’s shin being seen is somehow un-TimeLordish

Coming from someone who has never seen or knows anything about doctor who, taken out of context this comment was hilarious and I don’t mean that in a malicious way.

No worries mate - I’m struggling to believe that someone’s shin being on show in a promo pic is being considered un-TimeLordish at all - or for that matter being talked about at all 😃

Did the Doctor ever show shin in any of his clothes in any of his incarnations?

I think I’ll give a whole episode a watch, maybe even a few additional episodes, before commenting that someone’s shin being seen is somehow un-TimeLordish - taken from a promo picture 😃

Why do I have to wait? I know what the costume looks like from the promo pic. I’ve been watching Doctor Who since the early 80s. I think know what is and is not TimeLordish.

Did I say you have to wait? No.

not exactly, but it seemed like to me that you sort of implied that it would a be a good idea to wait.

No. I simply said that ‘I think I’ll give a whole episode a watch, maybe even a few additional episodes, before commenting that someone’s shin being seen is somehow un-TimeLordish - taken from a promo picture 😃

How you got ‘Why do I have to wait?’ and your follow-up statements from that is beyond me. Nothing implied at all.

Seems you are searching for something that just isn’t there. I’ll leave it there, for this reason.

You want to comment on her shin being ‘un-TimeLordish/un-Doctorish’^? Go right ahead.

Me? I’ll wait and watch a few episodes before passing comment or judging anything at all re the new Doctor - if that is okay with you, Warbler? (that’s a rhetorical question - so you don’t have to answer it).

 

^ - I can’t believe I’m responding about a shin being on show.

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.
https://mondotees.com/blogs/news

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.

Nice one - found some in their search bar (12 pages of related stuff) - some cracking posters and art 😃

 

It also reminded me of this cracking Heritage Auctions site that doubleKO found a while back - some superb old Star Wars posters in here.

Like Anchorhead, I kind of like the varied, unpredictable and wide-ranging looks that the various Doctors have adorned over the years - aye, even that stick of celery 😉

It’s my thing. I’ve been doing it for years. When I did the previous sigh, I didn’t think it would be taken so seriously.

and I explained what it meant in this post:

moviefreakedmind said:

I think it’s out of disappointment maybe.

slightly, and was also meant in somewhat tongue in cheek

May I suggest an option of you still doing your signature ‘sigh’ - yet with an explanation / reason / opinion etc as to why underneath?

It’d likely help fellow members understand as to what you are pertaining to - without having to ask what you mean and then wait for a later explanation - or help avoid any potential misunderstandings in between.

Also, as Possessed stated earlier - it ‘may help the quality and flow of discussion’ (nice one, Possessed 😉)

Enjoyed that - nice one 😃

I did struggle to hear the end few words of the project, and was taken a little by surprise with the inclusion of Kenobi vs Fett’s battle - though loved the choice of music, the voice overlays, and feel of the trailer overall.

A figure of 8 and a climb & dive isn’t a waste of tax payer money. The aircraft is going to fly anyway - and do the various drills and maneuvers as it / the pilot should.

Kids too young to understand won’t get it, kids that get it may likely think it’s funny.

It would’ve likely dissipated soon afterwards anyway.
