My life is a nonstop, day-in and day-out stamina challenge and every day is full to the brim. I’ve got a lot on my plate and I’m exhausted across the board. And it’s not gonna change anytime soon.

I would find it personally liberating to sort of dis-commit to this project for now. I will get the disc ripped when it comes out and might be able to mess around here and there, but the project management and time involved in the whole thing would be overwhelming to me the way things are now. There would be weeks at times between opportunities to sit down and do any kind of meaningful editing work.

It would be much better for me to act more in a contributor role for this sort of thing, and I’d be happy especially to make particular changes and ensure the audio is done as well as I can get it. But it would be a big ask, I’m finding, to get me to see this through the way I have in the past.

I know morale is rightfully low about this movie, but unless anyone else wants to helm this I am going to do myself the favor of not promising anything in advance and seeing how it goes. I’m not already attached to a particular view for this movie or have any earworms for specific changes, so that’ll make this easier to set down or to accept a version from someone else.

I’ll finish up ROTJ since I’ve got it virtually complete beyond sprucing up the new video source with some help from Sir Ridley and/or DrDre and plugging it in. (And TFA:R v4 since it’s almost done, of course.)

I’m usually someone who gets possessed of an idea and follows through, but life’s circumstances are hell-bent against it, it seems like. It might actually be healthy for me in particular to support someone else’s project and set it down in my collection without having it be under my microscope. I can obviously still be counted on as a contributor, especially making a second attempt at editing audio together as an alternate ‘take’ to draw from.
