Nice one 😃
 

This may be of interest for fans of some of the old school vinyl and cassette music releases:-

I haven’t had a chance to go through the rest of the Restraining Bolt website yet - though seems there may be some intriguing stuff on there, especially in the Music, Collection, Prop tutorials and Photo Gallery sections…

Rian Johnson to Head New Star Wars Trilogy
Time

Not really significant news, though likely a welcome one if you’re looking forward to the new Trilogy…
 

‘Something else for #StarWars fans, @rianjohnson said on the #CinemaCon stage he was going back to a galaxy far far away after ‘Knives Out’.’…

^ from https://twitter.com/colliderfrosty/status/1113929484934062081?s=19 - from Steven Weintraub, editor at Collider

 


 

‘.@rianjohnson is just as excited for J.J. Abram’s #StarWars Episode IX as we are, and he tells us at #CinemaCon he hopes that the directors keep taking the universe to new heights: “I want him to do stuff that I wasn’t expecting him to do”’…

The Star Wars <strong>Fan Films</strong> / Shorts thread

Would brickfilms be considered for this thread? Brickfilms, if anyone doesn’t know, are stop-motion Lego videos. There are millions of brickfilms found on YouTube.

If they are Star Wars themed or based go for it, mate 😃

If not, I think there is are couple of good Lego threads in the Media section of the site; this one amongst them The Official LEGO Discussion & Review Thread

Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *
Time

Dre - Not to speak for Biggs Audio Dynamite here, though I think she was stating you may get a wider, indepth and more meaningful (and maybe higher quality?) discussion on the issues like ‘Disney remake strategy’, either ‘in general, or for the ST?’, and other subjects mentioned in their own respective threads?

There’s a good chance of more people would likely know where to find them on the site, at least.
 

(bloody hell, Dre - you edit your posts quicker than me - impressive… 😉)
 

Edit: It doesn’t seem it is so much about positive or negative reviews or statements - or not liking to read critical posts, or be in an echo chamber - it’s the repetitiveness of them she was referring to? (ie, She ‘see start of posts saying like ‘for all the good things’ but people don’t then say what those things are. The same for those who post ‘for all the bad things’, and then mention focus or mention on the good. It comes across as empty lip service, to me anyway’.
 

Though you may be better asking that of BAD.

Proof of Lucas’ revisionism in Rinzler’s making-of book?

From the Desk of Charles Lippincott…

“The ‘secret weapon’ behind Star Wars”

^ I think this has been posted on here before - though I can’t find it right now. And besides, it’s an article worthy repeating.

It’s also a great insightful blog too - from one of the unsung contributors (now almost erased from the official history) who helped the make the Star Wars universe what it was.

With a lot more Star Wars content too - http://therealcharleslippincott.blogspot.com/search/label/STAR WARS 😃

What about yourself, paja?

I’ve been drinking Diplomat: lemon & ginger and Japanese jasmine tea ![]

The missus loves lemon and ginger tea as well - you people with acquired tastes 😃

 

I do drink the occasional ‘yerba mate’ - a bit like bitter green tea (so I’m told) - and meant to be quite a bit healthier than the usual tea or coffee; fair few nutrients in there and tastes pretty good (if you like bitter drinks).

Seems to be quite popular with athletes and people wishing to lose a bit of weight too, along with those wishing to boost immune systems (though I’ve no idea if it works - or how well it does work).

Happened across this by accident, don’t think I’ve seen it before

Beautiful artwork that by Matthew Spurlock.

It’s featured in here too, mate - along with some more quality TLJ art:-
