Hi again guys.

thanks for all the well wishes. it is greatly appreciated.

Well it turned out that they cancelled my op when i turned up for the appointment. they made some excuse that they had some emergencies that took priority ( there were a couple of illegal immigrants in handcuffs that were going to get my slot for treatment, but don't get me started on that one) so i tried to rebook my appointment but was told that they could only send out the appointment by letter. well today i received the letter and no appointment. they have refused to treat me because i smoke and i am overweight, which the weight issue is actually caused by my illness that i was having the operation for and the reason i can no longer work. Only when i can prove to them that i haven't smoked for at least a month & have lost about 1 stone ( i'm not grossly overweight in today's society as i am only 15 stone) then they would reassess my op. What a great country i live in. you can get treatment if you abuse alcohol, are a class A drug user, paedophile, rapist, or any other type of criminal, but if you smoke and are overweight then they will now refuse to treat you but not have the guts to say it to your face. i worked most of my adult life and paid into the NHS with my contributions, have no criminal record, but i now have to suffer with pain because i smoke & cannot exercise to lose the weight. They have also cancelled an appointment i had to remove a wisdom tooth too.

So i have just concentrated on the edit. Luckily it keeps me from thinking too much about what a piece of shit country i live in nowadays.

I've just finished the new graphics for the Death Star countdown. Even though they are all new i have kept them very similar to the original design. So things are still on schedule for a November release

Damn, really sorry to hear all that (well, not the stuff about the death star graphics). But damn. I know you probably don't want to hear anything about it, but that's just terrible. I just hope things will work out.

That'd be about what 95 Kg [210 pound]? I'd hardly consider that overweight, Unless you are quite short in stature....Doesn't seem fair - or is it moe the fact that you're a smoker? oh well, Good to hear about the death star...

I know it isn't that overweight, and i'm 5ft 10inch, but before i had all the problem with my back & leg joints 6 years ago then i was only 10.5 stone and had been since i was a teenager. The funny thing was that up until she asked me if i smoked she was really nice then suddenly changed her attitude. She was giving me a lecture about how much damage i will have done to my body through smoking and she said that i will soon see when she does the medical. Well she tested my blood pressure first - perfect, so no problems there. Next was my cholesterol level - perfect too. She wasn't too happy at this point because so far there was nothing that she could blame on smoking but then she tested my lung capacity . Now this really pissed her off when she consulted her chart and had to tell me that i had the lung capacity of a 19year old NON smoker. So out the window went the theory about the smoking part of things and i have been smoking for 23 years. So to be told that i won't be able to have the op because i smoke was a joke. i have been to a solicitor to see what can be done but he has said that its doubtful that i will be able to pursue things because its happening up and down the country now and getting more widespread as hospital policy.

Stop eating the breads and pastries. Don't eat anything within 3-4 hours from when you go to sleep. Drink plenty of water. NO SOFT DRINKS. ( That includes the diet variety as well. The carbonated water isn't good for you. Your body needs oxygen to burn fat, not c02.)

Now, if you can do those things you can lose weight.... At least that's what my doctor tells me.

You can do it Adywan. Anybody who can edit/create video as well as you can, can do anything they set their mind too. You can do it mate.




I love everybody. Lets all smoke some reefer and chill. Hug and kisses for everybody.

I symphathize with you, Ady. I'm starting a weight loss regimen... well, about five minutes ago actually. I've got my bowl of oatmeal and my coffee with Splenda, and my lunch salad is sitting in the fridge. Should be fun. Of course I've got a few on you -- Google says my weight translates to 19 stone. I'm also 6'4" but still that's way too heavy. Anyway, here's to both of us shedding those pounds, eh?

Been following this thread, read every single page... love it. Keep up the excellent work.

But, uh, if you ever do get far enough to do Return of the Jedi... I have one request! I'm a big Imperial military buff, I love everything about it - so every time I see the costume error in RotJ, I get very sad I'm talking about all the Imperial officers having the same exact rank badges throughout the entire film... every officer wears a "Commander"'s rank. Even Admiral Piett. Compare his rank badge in Return of the Jedi to his rank badge at the end of Empire Strikes Back... he got a demotion! Anyway, I'd love to see that costume error fixed.

Yeah, don't worry about your health or finishing this gigantic project, focus your attention on the f***ing badges in ROTJ.

^^ That was a bit harsh man!!


Ady, I sympathizes with ya man. The NHS is truly a bag of shit.
You should try and give up the fags though man. Especially now you can't smoke in the bloody pub...I mean, what's the point of having a lovely beer if you can't have a bloody cigarette to go with it!

Smoking is bad,,,unless it's weed...then it's very good!!

Yes...I'm a twat!

Wow, no somking in pubs? I think the US still lets you do that in some states, not entirely sure.

Sorry to hear about the BS you've went through lately, ady. Our health care system is a blatant joke over here in the states as well. I'm a 15 year smoker myself, been trying to quit for a couple months but it's hard, so I know how you feel. Hang in there man.

bkev, 21 out of 50 states here have full non-smoking bans in bars, restaurants, and other workplaces. 10 states have partial non-smoking bans, and the remaining 19 don't have any bans. But that doesn't matter because many of those states have local city and county non-smoking bans. I know smoking is a bad habbit and those of us who do smoke should quit but I don't think people should be treated like s**t because they do smoke.

Well I have to admit it's kinda refreshing coming out of a pub not stinking like an ashtray. That really used to piss the missus off.
It's really a new thing over here in England. The no smoking ban only took effect in July. A total ban. From workplaces to bars. It's a good at the minute while it's warm and sunny. But come winter, who the f*** wants to stand outside a pub in the freezing cold & rain having a smoke. Bollox to that. Good reason to give up I suppose!

Anyhow....Good edit man...can't wait

Hey Ady Sorry to hear about all your troubles, but you seem to be handling everything pretty well which is really good. Just dont let all this get to you too much, everything will be fine eventually.

I know you werent looking for advice on health or anything but Ive received a lot of instruction lately about good health regiments due to my position and would be more than happy to give you any help if you needed it. Take care and get yourself healthy... For if you aren't healthy enough you wont be able to work on this project and cause some members to become annoyed.

Well i've quit smoking. I'm using the nicotine patches but it been hell so far. 24 hours without a ciggy. problem now is that giving up smoking has made doing this edit 1000 times more stressful. lol. i usually have a cig when i'm waiting for a hot to render or while previewing the finished shot and while i have a break. thats been the hardest part so far. Thing is now though i will be spending more money on the patches than i would on my tobacco. My local health authority won't supply me with anything to help me quit smoking apart from a bloody leaflet & support website which are a total waste of time.

so back to the edit.....

i'm having a couple of days break from the video side of things and i have decided to get more work done on the audio now that i have most of the movie finished. I've replaced the line " damn it Biggs where are you?" with the line " damn it Wedge, where are you?" from the monomix. This line always seemed more fitting to me because its Wedge thats coming to help him and not Biggs. Also all of Berus lines have been replaced with the monomix lines. the original actress just sounds more natural to me. The line that Luke says in the Death Star battle, "I'm on it" seems very high pitched and almost pre-pubescent and not like Mark at all. i've lowered the pitch slightly and now his voice sounds like Mark. I have to say a big thanks to Belbucus & Moth3r for the great work on the restored monomix.

a while ago someone offered to post the 5.1 SE laserdisc audio track for me but at the time i didn't think i needed it, but now i realise that it would be of great help to my new mix ( very handy to have as many sources as possible). I can't remember who it was because i deleted my PM's but if anyone can help me out with this audio track then i would be very grateful.

My take on that line "damn it Biggs, where are you?" was that Biggs was supposed to be coming to help Luke out, but it's actually Wedge that does, introducing him as a character. Luke's later line "thanks Wedge" is given with a note of surprise, as if it shouldn't have been Wedge helping him out.

Beru finally undubbed! WOO HOO! I've never heard her real voice and always wanted to! Another small dream realized in the Adywan edit! Why am I not surprised.

Oh, and as for Biggs...I've always been of the opinion that entire SE hangar should be removed too because there's no context when you meet him aside from the one aside mention by Luke to his aunt and uncle and his whining to C-3PO which most people don't catch or remember by the time they get to Yavin. Granted though, I understand why it would be a cool scene if the original desert footage was there, but there the catch is that the desert scenes are boring and slow the movie down...What a dilemma.

Biggs you are a royal pain in the butt for the flow of the Star Wars narrative.

Actually she's still dubbed, just with a different voice.
