STAR WARS REBELS and the Snaggletooth Quest

4th alwaysMay The 25th be with you! Belatedly of course. Seems the 40th Anniversary of the release of Episode 4 a New Hope slipped through my fingers like Star Systems through Governor Tarkin’s, as Leia said it would!

 

Anyway, Rebels series 3 has just finished, following Ezra Bridger and the rag-tag crew of the Ghost, a Millennium Falcon-type ship that seems to be part setting up ANH and the New Trilogy and part product-placement for Disney toys.

So after the climatic finale Zero Hour I watched Rogue One and A New Hope back-to-back, which was a great watch, though the ending of R1 was a bit abrupt, but tied in well to the start of ANH.

I’m playing the first Star Wars Battlefront game on the ps2 again, so I may have to blog that at some point!

I also went to Warrington Market Comic Con at the weekend, which was okay, but saw more toys for sale. I bought an AST-5 for five pounds at For the love of Sci-Fi in December, so have been looking at other stuff. The price of original Kenner-edition toys are bloody ridiculous though, you would think Lucasfilm would just remake them, but a bit better, especially Darth Vader. I must have had about half a dozen headless Vaders- looked like some kind-of Robot without a head!

Anyway, I’ve since come to the conclusion that all this ‘collectability’ nonsense is just that. Looking out for a red or blue Snaggletooth that costs at least £80 is a bit of a ripoff. So I’m giving that quest up and just going to enjoy whatever happens with Rebels and The Last Jedi, though it will probably be about Luke giving up the Light and the dark and being like the Bendu, be the one in the middle.

One thing I did like was watching Boogie Storm- the dancing Stormtroopers, complete with Meco’s 70’s Disco theme!

 

Time to get groovy and Feel the funkyside of the Force!!

Just when you thought Christmas was over and done with, there’s a double-helping of Dr. Rrr in The Xmasverse, just like that Christmas Pudding you have to have because it smells so good!

It’s another zany adventure as the Quest for the Power Core begins!

Time Travelling has never been so much FUN!!!

699th Post- Tiglet’s Time Wars- The Next big thing of 2017??

ttw-poster-1It’s reached that point again, thinking, well, what haven’t I done this year that could be doable next year? Can I achieve it, is it a realistic goal?

Maybe, maybe not, I haven’t the foggiest (as Michael Caine’s version of Sherlock Holmes said in ‘Without a Clue’)

One thing I have held back from is getting round to the sequel to Tiglet’s Time Travels from 2012-2014. I have planned a trailer for a follow-up, but it’s not been a priority. I do want to make more live-action videos, get away from just hikes and puppetry, but this could make a nice mix.

So, Tiglet’s Time Wars- coming soon!

 

 

 

 

As for my 700th Blogpost- well, as Monty Python used to say, it’s time for something completely different!!

 

Dance like a Gummy Bear!

After all the ups and downs of the week, it’s nice to let go and be a bit crazy!  So instead of going off on a political tangent- here’s something fun I did at school today- Dance like a Gummy Bear!

 

 

 

 

Go on, Just do it!!

 

 

Anything can happen Tuesday!

disneymp_letter_bottom

Well, I went walking anyway! I did start by working on a superhero short story for an anthology submission, but my family were driving me crazy, so got out of the house and headed west into Liverpool. I thought why stop there and then thought-let’s get out further, see how far I could go. So got to the far side of the Wirral and thought- why isn’t there a ferry over or a tunnel under the Dee so I could get to Wales? Damn, so went on a circular amble from West Kirby up to Hoylake then along the beach and back down to the Marine Lake.

Might not sound that exciting, but it helped me complete a section of the Wirral Circular Trail I had not done before (just leaving a section between Hooton and Eastham to do- huzzah!) and giving me space to clear my head and get a bit of inspiration. I have to say I am chuffed with the results, four new vids in a day and an interesting NEW Series- I have had a few ideas of what to do next, though I’m back in work so there’s a time and locale limit- basically having to get to Chester every day, no matter where I go.

So, there we are, Anything Can Happen Tuesdays have begun!!!

What to do on my last day off???

keep-calm-because-anything-can-happen-1So, I went into school today, as I knew that it’s my sixth year working there, thinking, oh great, sit through another lecture another ‘Staff training day’ as I had made a note in my dairy at the end of term, way, way back in July. Anyway, turns out it was just for Managers and I didn’t have to go in! DOH!!

So today, been doodling, looking at videos I’ve edited and thinking- what on Earth am I going to do on my last day off on Tuesday??? It’s a mystery- It’s Anything Can Happen Tuesday!!

I could stay in, watch a bit more Anime (after binging on Titan/Kabaneri/Ladybug/blue exorcist/naruto/Seraph and bits of others all summer??) Or watch the whole of series 3 of Game of Thrones again? (Because the IW Xmas special is a Who/Thrones crossover and I really, really need to light a fire underneath it!) Even scribble a bit more on each of the four short stories with upcoming deadlines in the next few weeks?

I could even finish the so-called Summer Special Timedalek Invasion of Liverpool, because I wrote the Regeneration scene on the bus home from New Brighton last week. The Pandoriatrix speech I recorded on the beach forms the middle and I’ve started the, er, start, so it’s just linking them all together!

I have lots of editing to do too. The next episode of Dr. Rrr I’ve filmed bits of in various locations over the summer.(Mainly St. Johns Gardens because of the number of times I’ve passed through that place!)

Or, just to get it out the way, I could light a fire underneath my reviews of Harry Potter or Attack on Titan, or Ladybug, or Kabaneri or even a film maybe?

Hey, here’s a revolutionary thought- Go out! Yay! Weather’s looking good- Go Rhyl, Southport, West Kirby- go out to Hilbre Island? Llangollen, Moel Famau, or even out to Delamere, do a bit more of the Sandstone Trail, oooo, so many possibilities!

What I should do is go through the pros and cons of each activity, or just write on bits of paper, shuffle and pick out at random. Maybe even just step out the door, pick a direction and just see where the wind will take me!

WHATEVER I end up doing, I’m sure it’ll be FUN!

Look out it’s Anything can happen Tuesday- coming soon!!
