Somebody’s Making A PT Documentary

May 6, 2015

Something called the Ministry of Cinema is putting together a fundraiser to make a documentary called “The Prequels Strike Back.” It promises to include Mike Klimo and his Ring Theory as part of the flick.

The goal is $3500 and so far about $450 is in the pot. I don’t know much about the project, so trust your own judgment.

My Quick & Dirty Custom Tee DIY

May 5, 2015

I posted this picture on Twitter and Facebook last night of a t-shirt I had made with the pinup Padmé nose art used in the Bad Batch arc of Clone Wars episodes. I got such a positive reaction from it, I thought I’d share what I did to make it.

Ever since I saw the art at Celebration, I thought of how awesome it would look on a t-shirt. When I got home, I found a .jpeg of the art, downloaded it, and used Ribbet to crop it to take out the Clone Wars sticker thingie at the edge of the original artwork, and play around with the resolution so the whole image will fit on the shirt without pixelating or blurring it too much. Photoshop and I aren’t friends; I’m sure someone way more skilled with it could’ve come up with an image with even better resolution.

Then I went to Vistaprint and selected a women’s white t-shirt. I uploaded the image and voila, my shirt was done. By the way I used Vistaprint a few years ago to make a polo shirt with the Naboo/royal symbol on it. Shipping takes about 10 days.

What Can You Learn From A Gungan?

May 1, 2015

Adam’s new essay on Jedi News explores how the Gungans shown in the prequels don’t all share the same characteristics. It’s pretty interesting and makes a good point about how in Star Wars there are still distinctions among “alien” characters.

AMC To Run A Star Wars Marathon?

April 30, 2015

Reported across the internets is the (as of yet unconfirmed) news that the AMC multiplex chain will run a marathon of the Star Wars films in December, leading up to the release of TFA. Some guy who writes for Star Wars Action Figure News found this out from an AMC manager.

It would be interesting to see if the prequel films will be in 3D since those 3D versions exist.

It remains to be seen if other chains will do something similar. (Come on, Arclight and Cinépolis!)
