Iggy Days

By Mick Rock -A Real Street Walkin' Cheetah !...last week I had a Star Wars weekend -this Weekend a Stooges marathon ..guess it's the cool typeface where the S hits the T !Just saw the two Jim's Gimme Me Danger ..very good..(even saw a Hell in the Pacific Billboard a most  excellent  Lee Marvin movie that)The John Wayne stories great too.. so this playlist isn't a repeat of that but rather various snippets in random time in the life of the Ig -interviews as well as performances even manage to squeeze in a episode of Taxi lol  so a bit of Bowie, Ivan. Fred ,Josh , Ron, James Carlos ,Steve, James ...the list can go on .. Igs worked with the best- trying to remember first time I heard the Stooges -guess it would be 86 or 87 -but it wasn't the Stooges -I think it was around Blah Blah Blah  so I was  about 13 or 14 on Dutch Radio I  could pick up those stations .and they always played cooler stuff than English stations apart from Peel .taped it naturally as it was the best thing I'd ever heard ..Raw Power...then  Sixteen -life changing stuff- guess it was this performance (I think it was in Belgium )

I was aware of Iggy through Bowie  but not so much The Stooges -then I heard Penetration on Radio Caroline (it came back for a short while in the 80's they also played Tonite by MC5 so it was a good introduction to that Detroit sound)-then bought Raw Power at Tribes record shop and it grew from there ...bootlegs , rehearsal tapes , skydog records -as rough as these recordings were they sounded modern in the way sub pop and hardcore records did at that time so it was all the same thing to me ..the honesty and the guts of it that's what counted.

Saturday Club Playlist

Sad to hear about Brian of my fave DJs although I didn't live in those times .. he's proof that rationed rock n roll is best....some real rare gems here...all legends

Sounds of the 60's is what I would get to hear though  I used used to catch that show at work dish-washing pot-bashing and what not kept-but it kept  you going usually it would be average ass commercial stations in work places so his shows were all from heaven above on a Saturday morning ... R.I.P

Star Ryder

 Looks like Captain  Phasma here .. but I could be wrong..
Been a very Star Warsy week what with Celebration going on in Florida -lots of highlights including Marks tribute to Carrie where he mentioned this Kinks song (He's going to be so good in this new movie looking forward to December) I've finally sorted out problem with embedding and mouse (settings doh!) still a struggle to embed vids though in some cases ... another highlight is of course was the actual trailer for The Last Jedi silly Yorkie Bar chomping voice over with but a narration and it's not quite clear who is saying those lines -could be Luke,Maz at the start or could be Ben Solo (Han Ren? -perhaps Ren is the Smith or Patel of the Star Wars galaxy lol)so Han changed it to be different . so still kind of mysterious as it should be that space battle looks epic and it looks like we get to see another Desert Planet or perhaps return to Jakku or Tatooine -I wonder about this reported Casino Planet -you'd think Lando would be there but I watched interview with Billy last night doesn't seem like he's going to be in these movies which is a pity I'd of liked to of seen what he's been doing over these last 30 years..The  other highlights included Boba Vs Bane although I hope this isn't canon or if it is it appears later but I always thought Vader created that dent in "Enemy of the Empire" besides don't want Bane to die I think he should still be around at least up till Episode 4 era so I see this as vid as a what might of been if there was a seventh season of The Clone Wars (so it's a bit early for the Bobster to have his iconic gear anyhow) Enemy of the Empires so cool it deserves to be canon ..but this is cool too so In my mind he has two helmets and they get dented in exactly the same place lol..roll on Bounty Hunter movie perhaps they explore Banes fate in that film... or perhaps thee Cad will appear in the upcoming Han Solo movie.
Another trailer  this time for Battlefront 2  good to see a story based campaign I got a bit bored with multiplayer and seeing as my ps4 packed in the other week I have to go way to the start so I can't be bothered now .. but this looks like an more expansive experience -kinda Kir Kanos (see Crimson Empire) storyline as we'll get to see from an Imperial perspective from the looks of things...but they'll never be the good guys -they have the wrong end of the stick -+ 30 years is a long time to I hope story isn't just zap zap bang bang -there's a novel that will proceed the game I'm sure that will be a great insight into the main heroine of the story.

The second Panademic Battlefront was great I still play it with the mods from time to time so I expect the same kind of leap in gameplay and innovation ..hope they don't muck it up. Then there's the final season of Rebels trailer -should be Mando City!!! ...will they carry on with another title through Galactic Civil War or will it be a Old Republic cartoon? perhaps they could do a Pirate Bounty Hunter themed show to tie in with The New Solo movie that would be a good way to feature Bane and Boba again - (will Rex get hair transplant by the time Jedi comes out seeing as he's meant to be that old Rebel Commando with a Willy Nelsonesque ponytail -thing is that dude aint a maori so how could he be Rex?)although it's nice to think he's still live and kicking in that time period.I think he disguises himself as a Biker Scout durring the Battle outside the bunker (I'm kinda eagle eyed when it comes to stuff like that seeing I've been around as long as these movies) goosebumps as Piper would say. Been busy Mass Effect Andromeda in-between buying new computer -finished main story (as they rolled credits but really halfway through as theres still tonnes to do loyalty missions , film nights making planets livable again-when game out seemed to get a grilling which it didn't deserve -my Sara's fine nowt wrong with her she's kinda like Natasha Kinski ..hopefully the initial problems will be ironed out, and that they'll be DLC on the way (they do a fine job on that usually Bioware)like the Fallout playlist this will grow and grow into a cutscene movie that'll last days. I did first video before ps4 and video crashed hence auburn hair so she had a major makeover before she went to Habitat 7  lol I was hoping to see this guy in game or that The Happy Mondays did soundtrack lol .. but here's the original Ezy Ryder

Technical Difficulties

Yet again computer snuffed it -almost immediately  after ps4  conked out (and no I didn't smash it up or lose my cool with  it decided to  flake out on me too...machines huh!  if you ask me 21st Century so far is built in obsolescence by it's very artificial nature ..just  all the mad shit that's happening right now in the news it's like they want to break the world-I'm seriously bummed --feel like  Unlucky Alf from Fast Show -can't even embed they fuck up how you embed videos using a mouse and that stupid square thing at the front of the computer that seems to have replaced using a mouse -prefer mouse -that's how I'd paint with photoshop but oh no can't use that have to use something i'm not used to and it ruins things utterly -I rely on embed codes for all the blogs I've created -wanted to feature Mass Effect playlist ..but due to even more technical difficulties can't even do that just yet
I'll try and post again when modern life isn't so rubbish -"oh bugger!" as old Unlucky Alf would say...hopefully this computer will last a bit longer although I can't  guarantee it.

The Mandalorian 7-Part 2-The Big Freeze preview

 Todays been a shite sandwich to say the least -I'm almost convinced since I bought the new Mass Effect game that the actual disc has a hex on it -firstly it didn't load game completly so I went back to start and tried to reload it -which it refused to do then my controller conked out so I went off and bought a recharging station -then  the icing on the cake my  screen froze pressed every button to eventually unplugged the damn thing after which it refused to do anything expecting me to have a usb stick with backup or something... fucking modern crap so it's dead now and it deserves to be bastard! shite machine! dealing with tech turns me Basil Fawlty with a  worse grasp of bad language -guess I'll have to fork out again and buy another but I'm totally browned off -and I need to fill in my Tuseday void with something-I have no tv I relied on PS4 for that and all   hence this post
 I recieved opening crawl for story I'm writing  so that cheered me up a little I guess -not sure  musics on there in certain countries (copyright issues? everyone knows it's John Williams  ffs -had same issue with Battlefront videos so I  don't bother with that either now) .. but this is much better than the one I originally filmed with my camera (its gone now as I've replaced it with this one)

Page 1:
 The Mandalorian Seven-Part 2 -The Big Freeze.
Frame 1:
The burning wreck of shuttle ST107 upside down in a Death Star hanger - A officer points towards the craft to a Firefighter Trooper as chaos erupts around the battle station

Officer:"This isn't a drill -extinguish that shuttle before it blows on the double!"

 Frame 2: Opun McGrrr awakens it's been a rough landing (again )-his hands still bound by cuffs -he is lucky to survive -smoke fills the the ships cells.

 McGrrrr: "Whuh? Whurr am I?"

 Fenn Shysha:" Unlock these binds or I'll snap your generals neck"

 Frame 3

:Fenn has General Basts head locked behind the energy binds and is close to throttling the life out of the Imperial General A Navy Trooper motions towards them weapon down cast.Opun still slumped on the ground is witness to all this as Bast begs for his life.

 General Bast :"Do as he ..ruurrr says....that's an order gasp*

 Frame 4 :Hands unfetted , Shysha bashes the guard square in the skull with is elbow -Bast wheezes down on the ground holding his neck .McGrrr attempts to raise himself up as this transpires.

Fenn Shysha:"Attaboy!.. I'll take ya blaster too gonna need that too "

Opun McGrrr:"Wha about me?

"Frame 5 : Fenn is already on the move-he's grabbed Bast too as he knows he's a valuable prisioner as he runs he's blasting with the stunned Navy Troopers weapon -as smoke and flames fill the shuttles interior .

 Fenn Shysha :"try and keep up- you're coming with us too General!"

Frame 6:

 Leaping from the shuttles upside down exit Fenn mows down two firefighter troopers who are trying to calm the shuttles flames - with Bast in tow

Fenn Shysha:"Wherever we are it's time to leave!"

 Page 2:

 Frame 7:
Big double page splash -huge battle scene as Tie Fighters & Interceptors locked in combat with the Mandalorian Cruiser -Gauntlet Fighters and various other Mando Craft dogfighting whilst the Death Star in its completed form watches on unaffected by the firefight going on in its orbit -we get a extreme close up of the cockpit of Tobbi Dala as he communicates to his fellow Commandos

Tobbi Dala: "Keep them busy ... I'm going in "

 Page 4:

Frame 8

:Tobbi's Gauntlet fighter sideswipes two exploding Tie Fighters destroyed by two of his fellow wingmen .
 Wingman:"Roger that Tobbi. "

"Frame 9:
As Fenn hits the ground gun pulled to General Basts head he is stopped in tracks by a deck officer who standing directly behind him with a large DLT-19 blaster aimed directly at the Mandalorian .

 Fenn Shysha:"One False Move...

"Frame 10:
McGrrr belly flops directly on top of the deck officer his body mass totally flattens the imperial as he drops from the shuttle doorway -Fenn twists around alerted to the danger .
 Deck Officer: "unnnkkk!"

McGrrr:" ooooffff!"

Frame 11:

McGrrr looks up to Fenn gesturing with his cuffed hands, eyes almost like a puppy -beneath him the deck officers lifeless hand protuding beneath crushed by Opuns weight .

McGrrrr:"Ahh cmon?"

Fenn Shysha:" guess I could do with another gun i'll see if I can free ya"

 Frame 12:
Tobbi skillfully evades the imperial gunners entering the hanger ,Imperial troops mobilize to prevent the Gauntlet from landing

 Frame 13:

 Fenn, McGrrr now carrying the deck officers rifle and Bast run from the crashed shuttle ...blasting troopers as they flee under heavy fire but with Bast as prisoner , the Imperials are hesitant in their choice of shots -
 Fenn Shysha:" I knew you'd come through Tobbi "

 Page 5:

 Frame 14:

 The Shuttle explodes as Tobbi swerves his ship into landing position troopers, walkers robots are all thrown backwards by the eruption. Fenn and Opun rush towards Tobbi's craft.

 Frame 15:
 From the rear door a astromech droid rolls down the ramp -a R2 unit but coloured much like Boba Fetts helmet greens oranges and reds. Imperial energy bolts zip past the little droid .

 Frame 16:
 The robot wheels it across the Death Stars shiny floors a blue light beaming from it's eye behind him .
Tobbi has left the pilot seat and is now covering both the droid but also Fenn who still has his gun to General Basts head and McGrrr who are rushing towards the Mandalorian ship.

 Tobbi:"Standard evac procedure ... you know the drill"

 Frame 17 :

 From the Imperials point of view -who are opening fire wildly through a platoon of blue-ish Mandalorian shocktroopers -some of Tobbi and Fenns shots hit some stormtroopers but this adds to the illusion as the R2 unit is projecting a big hologram .

 Imperial Officer:" Mando Squad gun them down!"

 Frame 18:

 Tobbi uses his wrist flamethrower to provide cover , Fenn releases Bast who crawls along the Death Stars deck McGrrrr has made it inside the ship and dashes towards the cockpit laser bolts shreek by crashing all around the ship
. .
Mcgrrrr:"Nice meeting you lads...!"

Frame 19:

The Gauntlet  raises of the Death Stars deck  in vertical take off mode , Tobbi and Fenn valantly  fight there corner but are increasingly out numbered by Troopers and now  Scout Walkers  begin to approach the two warriors .-Fenn turns to see that Mcgrrrr has stolen Tobbi's ship.

McGrrrr:"But I have business to attend to"

Fenn  Shysha:"Hey?"

Page 6:

Frame 20:

The two Mandolorians are surrounded by Stormtroopers as well as Death Troopers -their  is no other option  but to lower there weapons -if they have any chance to breath another day.,, The Gauntlet clears the hanger into the battle amongst the stars.

Tobbi:" That womp rat you picked up -is a dead man-better to get even than die here"

Fenn" I hear you - okay white hats we surrender!"

Frame 21:

Director Orson Krenix  is at the scene , in white uniform and cloak much like we see him in Rogue One (this story takes place a year prior) beside him to his left and right  weapons pointed at Fenn & Tobbi  are two Deathtroopers... Krennic grins.

Director Krennix:"We have the two intruders Lord Vader ...shall I...?"

Frame 22:

Darth Vader  elsewhere on The Death Star  rear view gazes out of a large window  into the battle  between the Tie Fighters and Gauntlets the Mandolorian Cruiser is also visable  and streaks of colours from laser blasts and explosions .

Darth Vader:"I will deal with them personally Director Krennic - commander direct your fire towards the cruiser"

Frame 23:

The Death Star Gunner commander recieves Vaders message  and obeys his order.

Death Star Gunner Commander:" Very Good my Lord -commence primary ignition "

Frame 24:
The Eight  green beams of the Death Stars Concave Dish merge into one  powerful beam  ...

Frame 25:
View of the Mandolorian Cruiser been absolutely  annihilated by the Death Stars superlaser  the impact is totally devasting  smaller ships are also caught up in the blast .

Frame 26:

Vader stands emotionless as ever  front view as he walks away from window ..what was once a superclass cruiser has been reduced to fiery embers and  then to nothing ... the space battle is all but over with one shot from the space station .

Darth Vader:"Bring the prisoners to me -unharmed we have much to discuss Director Krennic "/

 So there you go first 6 pages of second part  of The Mandalorian Seven(script will be around 26 pages per chapter)   I  suspect they'll be four parts to the complete story  as it's all planned out in my head as are the two follow ups If I ever get to write them  .. above Ben in Rako disguise with Boba .. based on Dredd/Strontium Dog 2000ad cover-That Carlos Ezquerra did back in early 90's I havent got around to completing it the above script but this is what I was getting up to b4 I became obbessed  with doing a Fallout4 movie (that would last god knows how many hours) it'll be much more jazzy than this once I feel in the mood to resume  working on it. Artwork at top of post is a preview of whats to follow in season 4 of Rebels -season 3 ended over the weekend - it's been a memorable journey especially Sabine and Bens episodes which I have to take into special consideration , If I am to write this story I have to be able to connect it to the real events of the time shown both in Rebels and Rogue One-I don't want to stray from that -this chapter explores Dantoinne as well and why it was evacuated (my ideas pretty neat-and connects way back to the original animated Clone Wars series with Mace but I won't reveal too much but it  here's the clip where Jules ,,, I mean Mace is kicking droid ass on Dantoinne )
I'll try and force myself to get back on the script and illustration -got so many ideas how this story is going progress but I must be careful if Ifind out what actually transpires is totally different in canon.

Mess Effect

Mr Messy -slightly before he sold out and became a conformist -nobody remembers him when he's all tidied up though...same goes for Mr Greedy after diet. My console seems kaput or at least the controller -I'm going livid -whats more can't progress off Nexus onto The Tempest says game loading isn't complete never seen anything like it b4 and hugely frustrating -so I can't really comment on a game that won't let me play it .Heres opening scenes wanted to do a playlist similar to Fallout4 -which is progressing very well as you'll see .. but it may be sometime before I can resume with Mass Effect playlist.
I think my Ryder needs a brace-I'll  have to reload everything all over again once I get new controller or re-install disc whatever the problem is... so may re-record these vids depending on how  next Sara or Scott look like.
My Fallout 4 vid playlist is growing by the day -not sure how many vids it'll be by the conclussion -but theres no end in sight could be about 600 to 800 at a guess -I'm including ps4 mods (yeah I  know seems like there are far more mods out there for xbox and pc )but least there are a few quest mods floating out there hope more will follow (these mods could do with audio though only realized halfway through that I needed subtitles )and if mods go too nutty doesn't fit in with story or world  so I keep that in mind -so far 223 videos and I haven't even got to the Institute yet .

Putting stuff out on youtube is sort of new to me-not really doing this to get tonnes of views but really for reference some cracking stills of my soul surviour in action point moments would make a good starter point for a pose in my comics especially The Deadly Sins which is visually similar to the characters i've created and the settlers too who also get the greaser makeover.
Seem to get views that don't show up youtube think many of the comments are spam sometimes I can't respond as youtube don't give the option to post some comments -so I'm not been rude .. but if it is spam fair dos,
Update-PS4 just died .. I'm in two minds to buy a new one or to get a xbox1 trouble with that is you can't record beyond 5 mins like I've been doing here-damn crummy machines they make me go all Abslom Darkk  Dalek Killer - maybe I' wont bother making any more videos -very depressed.
