The Council has called me, no, not that council…The SW Shadow Council!

Hello Everybody, this is just a quick shout-out and bit of fun post. Firstly, I’d like to point out my prediction about the lightsaber duel in The Last Jedi being epic looks as if it was correct. You will have seen the recent “Lightsaber Feature” going round the net showing the rehearsals for Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver. In it they discuss the brutal workload for the fight scenes and we get to see Daisy do some moves, and guess what? She’s taking on THREE opponents! Just as I predicted! (Whether that particular sequence is included in the film is yet to be seen, it might have been cut but probably unlikely being as it’s in the new video!) Here is the image I saw 3 months ago:

Now this isn’t the first time I have predicted an event in the Star Wars films, two years ago in the build up to The Force Awakens I created a Meme and posted it on the lightsaber forum I belong to. This was the image I posted two weeks before the film was released!Windshield Bugs

And here is the link to see the post on the forum: SaberforgeForum Post  (Rathtars anyone? 😀 !)

But now I need to draw your attention to a fairly new blog which has been brought to my attention. It is the blog called the SW Shadow Council which is run by a group of eight Star Wars enthusiasts. They discuss everything Star Wars related especially theories and philosophies. A few of their contributors also write for Wookiepedia and a Reddit page. Here is a brief outline of what the Council members say about themselves:

robotical712

Robotical712 is a 32 year old father of two. He was a big fan of Star Wars in the late 90’s, but left the fandom in 2000 and rejoined when TFA came out. He got his start in the speculation community on reddit, but has since branched out and created r/StarWarsReference, a subreddit backed wiki for curating and analyzing Canon. His favorite eras are the Rise of the Empire and Galactic Civil War.

marvelstarwars

Marvelstarwars has been a member of the r/StarWarsReference community since January, 2017. End statement.

DremoraChurl

Dremora is the group’s token foreigner, being from the Realm of Oblivion (a.k.a. New Zealand). She has been a member of the Reddit communities since early 2016. She loves Star Wars for its focus on family and friendship, its simple but effective themes and narratives, and on top of everything else being fun. Always looking for a good mystery to solve, her current favorite era is the ST era.

Pale

Pale is an 18 year old father of zero who first got into the Star Wars fandom in February of 2016 through the speculation community on Reddit. Soon, he branched out into being a wiki editor of /r/StarWarsReference in January of 2017, helping curate the continuing Star Wars meta. Pale enjoys the more rogue-ish side of Star Wars, rather than the mystical side. His favorite Star Wars movie is The Empire Strikes Back and his favorite era is the Galactic Empire era. Pale also reviews and rates music on rateyourmusic.com.

HypersonicHarpist

When she isn’t working on real space ships HypersonicHarpist enjoys stories about fictional ones. She first became a Star Wars fan in 1995. She enjoyed the old Expanded Universe novels (now Legends) back in the day and is now really enjoying the new Canon.

NeedsMoreSprinkles

Sprinkles is a freelance theater artist and graphic designer from Seattle, Washington. She became a Star Wars fan in her teenage years, after getting so grossed out by the tauntaun guts scene in The Empire Strikes Back when she was eight that she refused to watch the series for almost a decade. She is most interested in the myth and folklore roots of the series, particularly how it relates to the work of Joseph Campbell. She chose her username because she was making rainbow sprinkle Chex Mix the same day she started her reddit account, and the rest is history.

JoseyFish (F.T.  er, I think JoseyFish needs a bigger Bio!)

So if this sounds of interest to you then please go and check them out, I am sure they will appreciate your visit (beware though some content could be classed as “Spoiler” material as they do delve deep into their topics of discussion and I haven’t been able to read all of their posts yet!) Here is the link again  SW Shadow Council (or use the one conveniently placed in the sidebar! >>)

I am nearing the end of this impromptu post but as always I’d like to thank you all for looking in today. I think I have one more design to bring you before the new film releases, so I hope you will return to see that hilt then we can all enjoy The Last Jedi! Thanks again…Till next time.

    1. Hi Neil, as I mentioned I haven’t read all the material there yet but I hope there is plenty of non-spoilery (is that a word?) stuff for you all to read! Thanks for the comment.
