Executive decision: Since I don’t tend to do the tweet roundups on Monday (or I forget, because I am a ding-a-ling sometimes) we’ve gone to a more casual schedule, which is basically: Whenever to whenever. I don’t plan to start skipping weeks unless I need to, for holidays or other low-tweet periods; I’m guessing it’s probably going to shake out to be Wednesday to Wednesday. WE’LL SEE. The important thing is: Tweet roundups! And go.
(But first, ballpit context: Dashcon, the internet’s favorite disaster this week.)
The latest episode of Full of Sith delves into Shadows of the Empire. I haven’t read the book since it came out, but I do remember one thing very clearly: Most, if not all, of Club Jade hated it due to the icky gender issues (‘skeevy’ is gentlest way to put it) re: Xizor. Bryan reads some of the worst of it out loud. Thanks, Bryan.
Our own @SWStylebook has been featured on the Daily Dot! And that’s not the only thing brewing for that account… Stay tuned.
Last week, we were weirdly facinated with Threepio’s crotch. What? It’s not like it comes up that often…
Last week, Darth Maui celebrated avoiding bifurcation for yet another party, we all hope the soccer fans won’t hurt us when Episode VII comes out, pondered Harrison Ford’s ankle, and preteens consider policy. Onward!
Remember our unofficial Star Wars style guide from a few years back? Well, now there’s a Twitter account, @SWStylebook, because apparently I am insane. Apparently a lot of other people are, too, because it took off like gangbusters last night and I am still a little freaked out. Please follow it and also feel free to ask/suggest stuff!
Last week, we (probably) got a new director for Episode VIII. The week before that, Harrison Ford broke… something on set. All that and the usual shameful spectacle…
James joins the latest Full of Sith. Bryan Young, Amy Ratcliffe and Anakin Young recorded the podcast at Origins, where they chat about the Aaron Allston memorial. Also includes Bryan’s interview with Nick Gillard at Salt Lake City Comic-Con’s FanX.
You may spot a few familiar faces in this video promoting A Force For Change.
Wrapped up in JadeCon preparations, I considered putting this off for about two seconds, before I realized just how much actually happened last week: Mark Hamill made his Star Wars weekends debut, two new actresses cast, leaked photos, you name it. In any case: Onward!
