Getting to Know You, June 2018

Pretty much everyone agrees that the prequels are subpar. I wouldn't so much scrap them as remake them and try to keep the essence of the movies intact.

I wasn't disappointed with Ep's 1 & 2 until Ep 3 came out.   After that, I felt that the essence of the first two movies sould have been condensed into about 30 minutes, and the third movie expanded to fill the rest of the trilogy.

June 6: If you were in charge of your favorite movie/tv franchise, what would do with it next?

 

Thanks, Crowley!

 

Easy. Rebuild the sets, get as many of the actors back as I could, beg Joss Whedon to come back and run the thing, and get at least three more seasons of Firefly out of it.

That being said? Revamp Wars. Enough of this mining the old scrap pile. Enough digging through the old stuff. There's TONS of Expanded Universe stuff out there that would make great canon. I have no objections to cameo appearances, sly references and easter eggs, or even taking an old guy and making him a major character in something new (the use of Thrawn in Star Wars Rebels was absolute genius), but I really have had it up to here with prequels and reshufflings of what has come before. 

That being said? Revamp Trek. Trek is not Wars. Quit trying to make it more like Wars and make it more like Trek. And this includes the part about going back and reshuffling the old stuff. Cameos, use of old settings and characters, easter eggs, those are great. The fans love it. But enough prequels, and enough Abrams. Oh, and settle on a Klingon design and STICK WITH IT, DAMMIT!

Misheard songs:  Old spiritual "The New Jerusalem"  heard as "The Nude Jerusalem" .  Funny in a spiritual.

 

Favorite Season: WinterSpringSummerFall.  What I like best: It changes.

 

Movie/TV:  I'll do three. 

1. Star Trek: Redo the reboots so that the continuity is right.  If you make one change that others flow from, don't have things different from before the change.

 

2. Alien series: Wipe out all after Aliens.  Have Newt and Ripley survive and then find out that the ship that crashed was not destroyed.  Someone has tried to restart the colony and the aliens are on a ship headed into Earth.

 

3. I lost the thought but I will go to Star Wars.  Han drew first.  Redo the first three. Total plot redo.

I would almost certainly make a bunch of changes to improve my own perception of world, plot, and character consistency, pleasing maaaaaybe 20% of the audience, and driving my beloved thing into the ground. Chances are, I would also massively overspend on all aspects of production, producing at least a little[/i] general awesomeness, but getting it axed all the faster.

I would take Star Wars and make the next movie feature ZERO white Caucasians.  I've always wondered if a loud enough scream from the US would make it all the way here to HK and I figure this is my best way of finding out.

Mooncake!?!?

:lol::lol::lol:

I actually had to google that image to find out what you were talking about!  That's awesome.

 

Also, I'm talking about mooncake, not Mooncake.

Spoiler

Some jokes just don't work when written down. :down:

@Jokemeister, I'd watch it. Why should I expect the folks in a galaxy far far away to all look like they could be my second cousins?

I'm sorry I've been a bit quiet the last couple weeks - I haven't even answered my own questions! And I had some good ones near the end of last month, too. ::P:

I run a weekly D&D session for my behavior kids who earn it. It's an incentive for "holding it together in class and adopting and using proactive coping strategies." It's also fun.

And I must have given away twenty Santa Mouslings over the past couple Christmases.

I've read a couple of your stories about that and absolutely loved them and how you've handled those situations haha!

I find things to enjoy about all seasons.  But it's probably just the romanticized versions of them as we really only have 1 season here.

Yes! I absolutely love the idea of fall and winter, but it's just cool summer in Texas anyways. Autumn is my favorite romanticized one, but spring is the one I enjoy the most down here. So much life to appreciate!

Also, we get to stuff our pie-holes with mooncake during the mid-Autumn festival.  Yum!

Oh man! Amazing timing. I was absolutely dying for mooncake yesterday so my lovely husband drove us over an hour round trip so I could go to my favorite bakery that has the best lotus ones. :wub: We're uh... actually going to be about 15 minutes away from it when we move next month.

 

Can you say dangerous, I'm going to stuff myself on rou song bao for a week straight....

I'd pass a Universal law forbidding Peter Jackson from ever again touching anything I love. No, seriously. Then I'd give control of decision making for the upcoming Tolkien series to someone who was carefully vetted so as not to make it an abomination. 

I knew we had a great friendship!

 

Environments? Fantastic. Music? I'll cry for days. Character design? Lovely! 

Actual storyline?

....

Bless you. I love Firefly so much.

And yikes, Star Trek. I'm of the mind that one can enjoy both Trek and Wars. You don't have to choose. But don't make it the same thing!

I hate that the Abrams movies feel like "Generic Space Adventures with Explosions. Oh and Fleet Communicators."

June 7: Will you cross anything off your bucket list this year?

 

Thanks, TGP!

I don't have that much on my bucket list, and most that I do have are long term goals that won't be realized quickly.

I honestly had to look it up, it had a different meaning than I thought.

I want to experience a really good day, the whole way through, and remember it. Really notice all the beautiful little moments.

And sleep soundly the whole night after.

Probably.

There a few goals I set each year, and sometimes I get them all and sometimes just a few.

I don't have a bucket list; maybe I'll get around to making one this year.

I've never really thought about what's on my bucket list.  Going to ReaperCon might not be on my bucket list but it is something I'm really looking forward to.

      Welcome to the last 2019 instalment of Getting to Know You, December 2019 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand ( ...should you chose to accept them... )
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, are likely chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions will typically be posted between  06:00 hours and 09:00 hours CET. (Central European Time UYC +1)***
      3.5 (...that is 23:00 to 02:00 hours RST Reaper Standard Time UTC -6)***
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me or one of the other quisitioners.
      (But my PM box is stuffed full gimme 2-3 days to clear it out...) 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play.
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to respond (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will often take the form of two day quests, running Saturday to Sunday.
       
      ***CLEARLY I WILL ON OCCASION BEND RULES 3. And 3.5.

      It's time again for a year-end roundup of the figures I managed to finish last year. These are the figures I finished during the calendar year of 2018, which was, let me tell you, another ... interesting year.
       
      January-March

      I was absent from here for much of 2018 (starting mid-August 2017), but that doesn't mean I wasn't painting. I hope to post a bunch of pics over the next week detailing all the minis I painted before August 2018. March featured a ton of stuff for convention GMing and I also painted a bunch for Tomb of Annihilation. And just whatever I felt like.
      I'm going through stuff elsewhere to see what's been done and soon I'll be posting the list of minis (and also linking to other show-off threads).
      Tablescapes Terrain WIP
      Terraincrate Terrain/dressing WIP 1- Wizard's Study general WIP
      Wizkids pre-primed minis and more minis terrain & dressing
      Bad Squiddo Freya's Wrath 
      Folklore the Affliction minis
      GW mini WIP
      Reaper Bones minis
      77434 Yeti Chieftain
      77460 Dwarf Butcher
      77624 Altar to Dagon 77343 Goroloth 77166 Balto Burrowell 77142 Bones Blacksmith WIP Show-off
      The missing minis are yet to come... I need to find where they were stashed out of the way.
      Total count 20 (actually, __)
    • By Glitterwolf
      So here is all I painted in 2018 ( finished minis only).
      All get one pic and a link to the original Show Off thread, Just click on the name!
      Check it out if you missed something you like.
