Art New

  • Dave Dorman had a nice update for his Star Wars fans, “Because I am not going to SW Celebration this year, I don’t want my fans, old and new, to miss out on any Dorman SW prints. So for one week prior to Celebration, I will have a sale on my SW artist proofs. This will probably run from April 4-12. Keep it tuned here on FB for more as we get closer. I am working on a new small oil painting of DARTH MAUL. I will have that to show and sell towards the end of the week.” You can watch Dave paint Darth Maul right here.

Book News

  • Author Jason Fry has posted part 1 and part 2 of his author notes for Imperial Justice.
  • Update from author Paul S. Kemp via Facebook, “In vague writing news, finished a novel outline and am now pondering a short story for a cool antho.” That novel outline may or may not be related to the tie-in novel he mentioned he was working on in his January reddit AMA.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 100 celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Legion. They reach back into their archives to play a little of the opening for their first podcast episode, recount that in 2003 they had 3,000 costumes and now they’re over 10,000. They go over the news of the Episode VIII title The Last Jedi, the latest news on the Lucas museum, and they go over mission reports with some excellent examples of the good they do. Plus Dr. Evazan promotes the 501st Bash for Star Wars Celebration Orlando. Good episode.

Blast Points: Episode 57 kicks off with some news discussion. They cover Woody Harrelson on his Garris Shrike comment, Episode VIII costumes, and some highlights on the Rogue One secrets on The Star Wars Show. Their main topic is the Whills. They talk about everything we’ve been told about them, and the speculate on the connections from convories to the first Jedi Temple. Plus they get into listener emails. Good episode.

Blast Points: Episode 58 celebrates the 20th anniversary of the special edition of A New Hope. But first Gabe talks about his recent trip to Universal Studios and talking to E.T. about his Jedi training. They share their thoughts on The Last Jedi, then they get into their main discussion.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Awards Chatter: Viggo Mortensen interview is a good one. Viggo talks about his parents, his childhood, being born in Manhattan but raised in Argentina, returning to America, the influence of his mother’s love in movies, how he eventually got into acting, his early roles and missed opportunities like Platoon, and of course filming Lord of the Rings. They also cover his latest film Captain Fantastic. Great interview and one you don’t want to miss.

Awards Chatter: Ryan Reynolds interview is pretty neat as it details the long journey that eventually led to the Deadpool movie. He talks about going from Canada and kid’s soap operas to Hollywood and films. I had no idea how deeply invested Ryan was in the idea of a Deadpool movie, nor did I realize that he wrote the script and had shopped it around for years in trying to get the film made. If you’re a Deadpool fan, you’ll definitely want to check this one out. And even if you’re not, Ryan talks about the various films he’s worked on, going from smaller films to big films, and what happened with Green Lantern.

Beltway Banthas: Episode 21 dives into politics with cabinet news, Mark Hamill reading Trump quotes in Joker voice, and they’re joined by guest Dennis Keithly from Starships Sabers and Scoundrels as they discuss the Separatists. The audio is a little tinny in this episode but the discussion on the Separatists is pretty good. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
