Grysks are not the Yuuzhan Vong

In the book, STAR WARS THRAWN ALLIANCES, Darth Vader and Grand Admiral Thrawn go to the planet, BATUU to search for the Emperor’s disturbance in the Force. BATUU is on the outskirts of the area of the galaxy called THE UNKNOWN REGIONS – an area of galactic space that has not been mapped for hyperspace routes, all the species are not known to the core governments (i.e. The Galactic Empire) and has little trade with the known galaxy. It is where THRAWN or Mitth’raw’nuruodo’s people, the Chiss live in their space. It suggests that Chiss have been space-fairing beings for a long time and they do not travel beyond their space borders (due to xenophobia) until THRAWN.

So, Vader and Thrawn visit BATUU to search for this disturbance and are attacked by some kind of swarm of bug-like creatures that leave some kind of stone metal on their person to digest whatever can be digestible (somewhat like THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL in 2008)

THRAWN had heard of the Grysks and what they could do, but his demeanor is his usual calm, which often means he is calculating ways he could defeat them. VADER somewhat freaked out, but regained his composure. He hates sand and these Grysk bug swarm were like fighting with his lightsaber in sand.

Because  of the type of combat that could disable Vader and Thrawn, some powerful fans who motivate millions have suggested that the Grysks are the YUUZHAN VONG.

The Yuuzhan Vong are an extra-galactic species that enter the Star Wars galaxy from the Unknown Regions and Invade and declare war on the Star Wars galaxy because the beings live side-by-side with droids that they religiously believe are abominations.

The Yuuzhan Vong are FORCE ABSENT so mind tricks and Force push do not work on their warriors. ALL of their technology are LIVING TECHNOLOGY called BIOTS. Their starships to their clothing are LIVING. They believe in a PANTHEON of gods and each god has a caste dedicated to them as they worship them. The caste of Yuuzhan Vong that is seen often in the fan pictures are of the WARRIOR CASTE because of their ferocity.  They carry large serpents that turn into staffs and fight in a martial art they created (probably like Akido with some mix).

There is much more to them than here, and please visit ONE of the SWAG77 sites to learn about the YUUZHAN VONG EMPIRE.

The STAR WARS ACTORS GUILD 77 has been roleplaying characters, created characters  and stories about the YUUZHAN VONG for over 10 years. WE KNOW ABOUT the YUUZHAN VONG and we have rallied for their reintroduction into the Disney Star Wars canon for years.

We feel that with GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE, RECYCLING, WASTE MANAGEMENT, DILAPIDATED INFRASTRUCTURES, DIRTY OCEANS, LOSS OF FRESH POTABLE WATER and LIFEFORM MASS EXTINCTIONS on the rise, the YUUZHAN VONG as fictional movie characters are uniquely positioned to examine such stories for relevancy and find solutions. The YUUZHAN VONG found a way to live thousands of years from their galaxy to the Star Wars galaxy with their BIOTS. Any fan can be inspired by science fiction movies, and one never knows who that is…

YuuzhanVongwarriors

Based on our stories, our conversations and our programs we have put forth, WE ARE SAYING:

THE GRYSKS ARE NOT THE YUUZHAN VONG

The Grysks are too unorganized to be an existential threat. The Yuuzhan Vong by definition are existential threats.

The Grysks have no formal organized military. The Yuuzhan Vong have an entire caste dedicated to worshiping a god to drive their military. Strange weapons does not minimize their military readiness and capabilities. Underestimating them will cause planets to be eaten.

The Grysks use too much metal and trade with unsavory people. The Yuuzhan Vong HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE any metal object crafted by some being’s hand to rule over them. Be it droid or weapon or ruling cane. The only metals that are seen as good to them are COORDINATED…

 

Must say this, the Grysks may have learned some tactics from the CONFEDERACY OF INDEPENDENT SYSTEMS or SEPARATISTS while they were active in THE UNKNOWN REGIONS. It explains why their military abilities are so shabby.

IF…. The Separatists got too far into THE UNKNOWN REGIONS and the YUUZHAN VONG saw them, it would make the YUUZHAN VONG go crazy to fight with a fervor that is drunk on the religiosity as a crusade. The YUUZHAN VONG do not play that droid mess.

It explains SOME aspects of STAR WARS THRAWN: ALLIANCE — Thrawn steals SEPARATIST technology for use by the CHISS. If the YUUZHAN VONG randomly associated that concept, no wonder the CHISS feel attacked from out of nowhere.

IF SNOKE is an UMBARAN and some of his Force abilities are what UMBARANS have, which is TECHNOPATHY — the ability to change electronic technology in one’s favor — or access to computers and change programs as a “Force Hacker” — and he got flipped by the SEPARATISTS (because the UMBARANS did join the CIS for a moment — Star Wars The Clone Wars Season 4 – Darkness on Umbara) — then he went into The Unknown Regions (separate from the Chiss) to set up “shop” and got in the way with the YUUZHAN VONG plans…OH YES…IT’S ON!

SHEEV PALPATINE or DARTH SIDIOUS did a clusterfuck. As a Sith, he chose the violent pathway. He wanted to fight the YUUZHAN VONG and saw it as something to be easily DEALT WITH in the Empire. Perhaps the FIRST ORDER was doing the same. But doing away with the JEDI was the mistake.

In the Legends Canon (SWEU) Luke Skywalker figured out the YUUZHAN VONG and defeated them.

IF Disney decides to bring the YUUZHAN VONG back, they are left with very little to fight back. Which means there will be some retcon and some watering down (namely the religiosity).  Because the Yuuzhan Vong would shape all the Force using characters to their whims and kill the rest. But, we don’t think that will ever happen. Hopefully, Disney does some kind of justice. But it is unlikely.

Just know the GRYSKS are NOT THE YUUZHAN VONG.

SNOKE is not a Yuuzhan Vong either. Listen to our PODCAST here:

How anyone, including nefarious pull a copyright notice on your content

We receive notices from Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Tumblr all the time that we have violated copyright from material that has been posted for YEARS on our tiny site.

Why now? Who are these people?

The last time it happened, Trump won the US Presidency with voter tampering.

So we question who these people REALLY ARE and if their pulling items from the bots used to search are REAL and why?

It is not fair to accuse United States citizens when all these companies were FOUNDED on United States soil and used LAND and LINES in the UNITED STATES to profit off their business.

There needs to be transparency.

Why is this on a Star Wars fan-based site? Because, oppression occurs to us nerds that do not “fit” these businesses paradigms. Otherwise, it’s terrorism tactics and we will protest.

Potential SWAG77 Storyline In 2014

When the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 roleplay performs, we plan our performances to reflect our fan made stories and headcanons.

This storyline was the strengthen and embolden the presence of MARA JADE as a character in STAR WARS REBELS. She would be ~13 years old. We were trying develop key personality traits of a 13 year old versus the adult version.

She was to infiltrate the REBELS and destroy them. That did not happen and in the Disney Lucasfilm version, it’s totally different. As SWAG77 we are FINE with that, but at least we attempted to write a story, than complained how bad we think Star Wars is and join toxic fandom.

Some toxic fans do not care about our vision because of Dunning-Kruger effects. They think they know ALL ABOUT STAR WARS and no one knows more than them. These fans also perform in GODMOD ways which KILLS roleplay and destroys public performances. It’s worse than a TROLLS treatment, because a TROLL just disagrees; whereas a GODMODDER is in on the performance game and sells out all the secrets to the public. You can trust a TROLL to be an asshole. You can NEVER TRUST A GODMODDER!

 

The point of this story arc was to get ships better than the Empire’s Star Destroyers and anything else they crafted together. Of course, the Rebels would never have that technology and that is kind of the point of the story as a lead in to A New Hope. The Rebel Alliance heard stories about a new ship under construction of immense power than no one had ever seen (of course that is the Death Star) and they felt if they had better starships to fight against this “unknown entity” they would be fine against this weapon. They were wrong.

The KUATIS built the hyperdrive engines for the Imperial Star Destroyers. The Emperor sensed some malfeasance by the KUATIS, he wanted a secret way in to their very private royal family. The Sultan’s grand-daughter to the SHESH family, VIQI SHESH was having her 6 (or age appropriate) year old birthday party and top galactic celebs were to be invited. Of course the Emperor could not make it. But he sent MARA JADE to go undercover with her REBEL friends and see what the SHESH’s were doing.

Of course there back-up plans to back-up plans. Of course there are other forces at stake here to show off to the Emperor who is a sadist and enjoys conflict. He gets off on conflict. But here’s a KID’S version of a back-up plan.

Come to find out, that the “hyperfuel” itself was being ORGANICALLY SYNTHESIZED AND FULLY PROCESSED by an unknown seller from the OUTER RIM off the TINGEL ARM…

The MARA JADE team managed to steal an entire slat of hyperfuel and put it on ALDERAAN — which feeds into another headcanon we have — another reason why the Emperor destroyed Alderaan was because it was infected by the YUUZHAN VONG BIOTS!

Here our touchpoints in the roleplay that we needed to perorm and prove.

1. The Rebels are fighting to get a ship in space. But aren’t able to do it. They have to retreat.

2. Then a surprise communique invites Mara to a special birthday party for the Shesh’s on Kuat.

3. If Mara doesn’t go to the “princess party” she will be ratted out. But if Mara goes to there, she has to take Ezra and Sabine definitely and possibly Hera as her “governess”.

4. But while they’re there, they discover there are plans for a new hyperdrive engine. So they can steal it and get it to Alderaan so they can retrofit it for their own starships.

As SWAG77 we never got around to do this roleplay due to a racist performer having Dunning-Kruger and hating aspects of Star Wars.

You cannot HATE and convincingly roleplay perform Star Wars unless you are trying to be a MARY SUE or GARY STU. We find most people LIVE through their roleplay characters rather than be themselves. Our research after 10 years is a roleplayer’s sociality suffers in real life. It hurts their education, their careers and their family life. It is an unsustainable personality. It is why SWAG77 auditions, perform test cases and re-writes in the draft performances. Why SWAG77 rehearses and restricts membership only to trained people to reflect our work. It is the standard we set and we think people can reach them if they want to.

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 MARA JADE campaign could not be performed after our failure to understand our primary mission.

We perform strong, accurate and authentic stories on social media to reflect the spirit and vision of all Star Wars.

Where Star Wars fans start.

Perhaps another roleplaying group can take our efforts and do better. SWAG77 doesn’t mind retcons or re-writes when we know. We just want attribution for our efforts.

The is a tiny snippet into what we really do in SWAG77.

Terms

The only terms we will accept in this debacle are:

Real life acts produce a frenzy of emotions where opinions can incite incorrect conclusions causing a mob mentality not based on facts. The readers of a published opinion misinterpreted the opinion and mobbed a small fan group, Star Wars Actors Guild 77, dedicated to reading the Star Wars literature, writing fan-fiction and performing on social media as a form of entertainment. We regret our words and wish our readers to use formal channels for political discussion. We also support Star Wars fans and fan groups to creatively express their fandom.

Movie Kisses History

Do you remember your first kiss? Was it filmed? Before 1926, no movie from a major Motion Picture Studio had a deepened kiss in its movies. At this time, movies were still silent. Though not the first kiss filmed, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s “Flesh and Blood” starring Greta Garbo and John Gilbert made history in filming the first kiss by a major motion picture studio in 1926. (source for story)

20141214-ESSAY-slide-X4KY-master1050 (1)

The movie story, “Flesh and Blood” is about two boyhood friends that became soldiers together for Germany. One of them as a young man, met a Countess (Greta Garbo) and they fell in love. The Countess did not share she was married to an old Count, and when he found out, both of the boyhood friend soldiers were sent to the frontlines to die. The friend returned and developed a relationship with the Countess, then the original soldier returned and that rekindled their relationship. The Count died at that time.

Watch the first filmed kiss by MGM in “Flesh and Blood”:

 

Watch the facial expressions and how they sneak off to light a cigarette which was forbidden at the time. Watch the flickering of the light and subtle body language indicating a romantic interlude. How they are tucked away, alone in the rose brambles off a veranda while there is dancing and music playing. See who follows whom. Who is younger? Who is older? At the intimate moment, they share a lifetime breathed away with a kiss. Notice the grays and how it is offset by the highlights and the shadows.

The scene works without a soundtrack in black and white filming and film, because of the small minute facial expressions and movements with small cuts and edits. Back then, shots could not be easily edited after cut, but somehow the production crew was able to do it.

In totality, SWAG77 builds their headcanons for fan-fiction in this manner. If we had the time and software to go frame-by-frame, we would. We want to watch the entire movie “Flesh and Blood”. If we had the chance, we would like to read the original script. Unfortunately, in this time of social media, we do not. However, it is remarkable to see this iconic still image and brief video are timeless in its portrayal.
