I just got around to seeing the pilot for Inhumans. It really is as bad as they say it is. I don’t know how I got through it. Part of me was ‘marvelling’ at the sheer awfulness. The dog is the only thing that made me sort of want to look at the screen. In a Facebook gif sort of way. Moon city that looks like a shopping centre and a Royal Family more loathsome than British one. Are they really meant to be worthy of our sympathy? Arrrrrrrgggggghhhh!

The Place to Go for Emotional Support

I’ve found myself feeling generally worried without any particular point of focus. I can’t sleep. My epileptic auras and ticks are becoming more noticeable. My stammering is beginning to return. I think out loud way too much and sometimes more loudly than I am comfortable with. I frequently start sentences and … <THAT

I think it could be that lots of my friends and family have more tangible problems and I am becoming aware that as time rolls forward and the canvas and frame of my face is becoming a bit more antique I might lose them.

My partner is particularly someone I worry about. His night terror attacks, heavy drinking and smoking are wearing me a bit thin. Especially now that I work quite a bit from home and while typing up reports in the night I hear these terrifying screams from his room. I want to help but I can’t force him to seek it and as much as I care I don’t know how much more of it I can take. If I left, which is something I constantly have considered for 15 years and something were to happen to him I would be utterly demolished. Then I feel guilty for turning his poor health into an issue of my own preservation.

It’s never been an easy relationship, when drunk he can be a very challenging presence and we haven’t been anything other than people who try to like each other and share a house for about ten years. We have separate rooms etc

I also worry that I have invested so much time with my life in it’s current mode that the bloom is somewhat of this particular rose. I am only 47 but with my own health problems and the low percentage of gay people in this neck of the woods my chances of building a new life may have already sneaked off down the pub and not come home.
Another vector in us staying together so long is that it makes financial sense. The mortgage is paid. The bills are easy to manage. If we broke up it would be very expensive and I would have to work much longer hours to keep a roof over my head. My partner is finding it impossible to find work at the moment. He feels that ageism is a factor, he is also very over-qualified in a market that likes to dangle skills incentives at younger, less expensive employees. He is angry all the time and much more so when drunk. He shouts and yells at the radio for hours at a go and while I sympathise it does set me on edge. Other times he be pretty supportive. Helping out with proof reading and that sort of thing. He looks amazing, he is 11 years older than me but looks younger than me.
I keep checking to see if he casts a reflection 😃

I don’t feel depressed. It’s just a sort of low hum of doom around my life at the moment. The whole political thing doesn’t help either. Maybe my mood will lift on its own. I have built up some savings on the off chance that if doesn’t. It’s good to vent though, it’s important to get some perspective.

Politics 2: Electric Boogaloo

Unfortunately people do get murdered all the time, but an attack like this does not happen all the time(I certainly hope it do not become routine). I wasn’t trying to distract from my country’s political problems and corruptions. I was just talking about an attack that happened today who that quote indicates who was behind it. How this invites copy cat violence, I do not know.

Its a sad factor of mass shootings and crimes like this one that the perpetrators are seeking infamy to conclude their unregarded life. By publicising the supposed religious angle to these murders it does give people a hook to build their murder/suicide delusions on. “I’ll make them remember me”, “I’m a soldier killing for an honourable greater good” It’s all bunk. If you are duped into killing a passer by in the street or in a trench on a muddy battlefield humanity is lessened. We fail these people and in failing lose more to violence. Meanwhile Mr Orange can carry on pretending to be in charge of events.

It’s a trap!

This is not funny. In case you didn’t know, an attack has occurred in NYC. 8 people are dead.

Satire isn’t always tasteful. People get murdered all the time, drawing to attention the supposed Jihadi intentions behind this one is a timely distraction from your corrupt politics and an invitation for copy cat violence… Literally a trap!

I have an idea for revenge of the sith and attack of the clones I was going to do it for my edit.You can go right away you should add darth mual into attack of the clones and revenge of the sith use after effects and take out count dooku and then replace with darth mual use a green screen and add him in I thought it was good idea to give Obi-Wan and arc during the prequels.

I thought I would post this idea here because adywan is not doing the prequels

Look, we all that Maul should have been kept as the villain of the whole trilogy, but it’s to late now. What you’re asking for is just not even remotely feasible.

I feel like this is kinda the point of the thread.

The point of the thread is to post ideas that really shake up the prequels rather than nibbling off the easier to get to urksome aspects.

It’s then up to an editor to think of how they would do this.

Now it would be very time consuming and labour intensive to recast Maul, film a new actor in costume and composite them over the existing footage.

But one way Maul could be the villain of the whole piece is if his body (as per existing canon) was salvaged from Naboo. He existed as a cowled figure in the second film and is revealed to be a cyborg in the last film. that way the only new footage would be an adjustment to the Sidious footage in the second film. This is doable and not too time consuming and shakes up the story (or lack of) in the PT.
