2015- Go Away!

Kinda a tradition to link Screenwipes end of year show- has been a bit of a git if years were people -already heard that radio stations ending as well  at the end of January so 2016  aint a groovy prospect either, but just had some nice fish n chips  and supping onmy Guinness so I'm happy for now-won't make plans usually go astray and a quitter never  wins.- had a tough time lately lost friends-had to look after nephew and mum both were ill but glad I helped and made a difference - there are times were I don't feel I matter very much-but not last few monthes as we survived the best we could- learnt that I had some kind of value at least.. It is better to help others than help yourself I think that's the crux of what I'm trying to say.. anyway heres Screenwipe - hoping 2016's a more sane year -

The Grim Reaper's been a right dick this year -Brett, BB,Coop,Philthy,Allen,Steve,Stevey,Patrick,Leonard, Sir Christopher,Rose,Lady Bo now Lemmy - I'd like to put Death in intensive care to see how he likes it -So tonight is dedicated to Lem -first single I owned was The Motorhead team up with Girlschool Saint Valentines Day Massacre E.P..first up a documentary- I was going to feature Classic Albums Ace of Spades but copyright is been uptight so instead "The Guts and the Glory" I  think I saw a bit of this before  Glastonbury appearence earlier this year. (they played my hometown many a time -wonder if that's coz of Noel Redding a Flintstonian too seeing as Lemmy was a roadie for the Jimi' Hendrix Experience It aint "out of the question"-you kept it real . Last up gig from mid-eighties -lots of special guests -Lem was well loved by so many.

Christmas on Hoth

I wont go into great detail about The Force Awakens -but I can see why it is called that- looking forward to the follow up- perhaps we'll see Lando in that one? (like to think Lobots still doing his thang too)Nien Nunb (more of him later ) popped up as a resitance fighter as did the good Admiral. It is all very mysterious and I like that-didn't like one aspect of the story does make me hate Kylo but at same time you know the kids sick (not in cool way)-it'll drive the story on I hope It's a very different style Star Wars film -but Rogue One will have it's on style too -I imagine it's a heist movie on the Death Star -"The Galactic Job" has a fascinating cast -that'll be the next SW film to look forward to.. The leads Rey played by Private Godfreys grandniece was excellent as was Finn the Stormtrooper with a good heart the world they inhabit also fascinates me -the First Order seem to be Nazis who escaped to South America and got there act together -but they seem even more inept than the original Imperials this Snoke creature better get his act together for Episode 8 what was the Battle of Jakku like? .. I noticed Rey picked up a helmet a little like Lukes .. hope she aint his daughter too obvious and done before .. although she is a little bit like Shimi (Anakins Mum)they're are other Skywalkers apart from Luke .. perhaps we will find out why Anakin didn't have a Dad ..that has always bothered me
The battle may of been a little bit like his except a different outcome-I`get killed alot but I go for the objective unlike those homing rifle woofters.( It's seriously un-sporting)don't save them from defeat though. I've been living this game for last month or so.. looking forward to the new content although I think it should of been on disc in the first place! (like the old Battlefronts)but it's bound to be additcive and fun -just hope I'll have money when it comes out. Bit of Nien and Boba on Hoth(fave map especially on Multiplayer)when played right .. bit of Leia on Niens homeplanet -Sullust -who's better off without AI team mates -lightweights . I'm writing a script entitled "The Mandolorian Seven"- "A Old Threat" it's sequel may feature Boba on Hoth (prior to Empire Strikes Back) he would of tracked Han down within three years I'm sure.. talking of Han thee Man.. You win some you lose some ...
Updated- getting addicted to uploading these vids(only really discovered I could do this the other day) -apparently Battle of Jakku occured a year after Return of the Jedi-guess you could say it was The Empires Waterloo -this time around the proper outcome of he battle featuringthe blue Tweek chick-Leia and Han Solo -notsure how Vader, Fett and The Emperor could appear in these post Jedi battles -but it's just a bit of fun I guess.. I did have a better one than this-where I got top score for a change (usually laser fodder) but the bloody thing didn't record though -maybe another time -new maps aren't going to be from new movies -but I hope to see Tantive 4 , Death Star, Yavin 4, Bespin, Jabba's Palace or Coruscant - wonder who new heroes and villians are too(Lando, Chewie, Wedge, Nien perhaps?-I would like to see more Bounty Hunters too but they didn't get many lines unless it's Greedo for the emotes so not sure who'll they'll pick for that)

The Playlist Strikes Back

Boba and Iggy 88 -I must of been ten when I drew this
The Star Wars playlist I made a year or two ago for old blog -did add a little more towards the end but lots of interviews behind the scences footage and fan films(The Aussie Star Wars fan flick been one of my faves) some stuffs been deleted or private videos (whats the point?)so I've removed them but there's more than enough here
Another from 83 - Boba's got a headache...which reminds that I've finally got hold of theblack and white version of "Death in the City of Bones" so I'll get to work colourng that story through the winter monthes
