Hello Everybody, I’ll say straight away if there are any typing errors I apologise but my fingers are a bit sore from having an epic practice session on my electronic keyboard. My hands now look like bunches of bananas but the effort was worth it…I learnt three classic rock guitar(?) pieces! I am feeling so much better I will now present the lightside version of D.P. Pair CLAWED…

I am amazed at how much difference changing the blade colour and type of finish on the parts can make to a design. This design now looks like a weapon a Jedi might use if he/she were disillusioned with the beliefs and traditions of the Jedi Code. These type of individuals are usually referred to as Grey Jedi. This saber was designed however for one half of Daft Punk yet translates to both ideas. And regarding ideas I have a few more sabers coming up soon, including a Father and Son edition, a saber for a person with no family and the six Multi-Coloured movie hilts…oh Zord that’s a lot of designs!
I am nearing the end of this post, yet again time is against me and now I have to find time to practice my music. But before I go I’d like to thank all the visitors to my site, including folks from South Korea, Canada and even a mysterious person from Australia who uses the Gravatar logo as their profile picture. I wonder if this is my “friend” from the forum I frequent now and then? Hmm! Well, you are all welcome and if you enjoyed what you have seen here please tell your friends about FTSabersite. Till next time.
Hello Everybody, these past few months have been tough with all the sad news we have received of people we have lost. To be honest I have been wondering all the questions of “why we are here?”, “what am I doing?” etc, and I realised I needed to do something to cheer myself up. I decided to return to an old hobby of mine….MUSIC! Some of you may know I am Piano/Keyboard player, well I had to pack all my equipment into storage 3 years ago. All except for a keyboard with no sounds in! But today I discovered a major instrument manufacturer was giving away free computer software that emulated some very expensive keyboards. I installed this software and connected my keyboard…and SUCCESS! I had a fully playable instrument again. And one of the first tracks I tried to play was “Around the World” by Daft Punk. So I thought if I updated my equipment, I could update my Daft Punk sabers! And here is the first D.P Pair CLAWED…

The saber now has a clawed emitter to make it look more aggressive and advanced. As I mentioned in my previous D.P. Pair Lightsabers post Daft Punk pushed the limits of technology and music and now I can maybe attempt the same with my new equipment! I will bring to you all the silver version of this pair of sabers tomorrow and hope you will join me to see it. I also have the much teased set of six sabers for an upcoming Blockbuster movie (I’m not being horrible making you all wait I just thought I should reveal them nearer the film’s release date! 😀 ). So for now I would like to thank you all for visiting today and all the continued support of the site. Till next time.
Hello Everyone, I am turning to my musical roots today for my inspiration. I was brought up on the music of the 80’s and 90’s era, while at the same time teaching myself to play piano and keyboards. I have an ear for music and was able to listen to a track then play it after a few minutes’ practice. This was great as I had a Jukebox like repertoire. In the nineties music started to become Technology driven with Sequencers and Samples being used to create a Harder, Faster, Better, Stronger musical style. You may have guessed by that last passage who inspired me and the design for these next TWO sabers. Yes, I am talking about the Electronic Duo of Daft Punk. I was first made aware of this duo on a Saturday morning music video show, the song was called Da Funk and featured a video with a poor unfortunate Bassett Hound dog with a broken leg. But from this unusual beginning a raft of great music followed and a film score too. So here is my tribute to Daft Punk, this is D.P. Pair Amber…
And D.P. Pair Cyan…
The duo are a powerhouse of music, who after starting out playing rooftop parties and dance music competitions went on to perform with the likes of Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams and Niles Rodgers of Chic. On top of all that they performed a spectacular stage show of totally unheard material with an unbelievable interactive lighting show built on a pyramid! I felt these two designs looked industrial, technological and have the colours of the famous duo. Not only that but they wouldn’t look out of place in a scene from TRON LEGACY, oh yes that was the film score they wrote! I hope Daft Punk would approve of these, knowing their love of tech and helmets!
This brings to an end this offering and I want to thank all of you for looking in, the site even received a visitor from New Zealand so hello to them! I have more designs to bring to you in upcoming posts and I hope you will join me again. I will leave you with a double-double act in the form of two final pictures. Till next time.
