Thrawn on Batuu about Din’kartay

Thrawn needed provisions from a developed, first world planet different from the isolated planet lost in the Unknown Regions for any sentient society. But not one directly affiliated with the Empire or the rumors he’s heard, First Order. He could procure weaponry, ships and component parts.

But what he could do is reconnect on Batuu with any Mandalorians. He found…

Dear Tumblr,

All those posts you see of young artists charging $3, $6, $10 for a drawing because they need help? That’s fucking exploitation, and fuck you if you think it’s reasonable or a “good deal" to pay nickels and dimes to squeeze a full-color original drawing out of some talented, hardworking kid because things are tight, and they can’t afford their textbooks. Or food. They sure as hell can’t afford to make you art for $6.

Instead, stop. And ask them where you can donate. If you can afford a $6 drawing, then you can afford to spend $6 simply to help someone. You don’t need internal organs as payment.

Don’t allow young artists to be exploited.

this and this some more.

I’d go one step further and say: Offer to pay them decent Illustration wages instead if you still want a drawing, say around $20/hour. That way not only will you blow their socks off with your kindness and respect for their abilities, but you will also endow them with a sense of worth that they’re probably hurting for after being surrounded by the sort that makes them feel like their services are so worthless.

Illustration is a professional skill requiring years of training and dedication, regardless if there’s a school involved. If you enjoy that artist’s work and want to help them out, either donate like suggested above or else pay them what their work is worth and pass on the word.

Basically!

And if someone claims something that took you an hour to draw isn’t worth at least around $10 per hour of work, dont listen to their bullying. To the non-artist, its hard to see the worth in art especially if they didn’t put 10, 5, 2 or even 1 years of solid effort to get to the level of artistic ability there are today.

If the person complaining is still unhappy with the price despite that reasoning? Well let THEM make their own drawing themselves and spend the $10 elsewhere. GL to them getting the level of artistry you have without those years of experience they put behind them!

Honestly, I make designs for people for free, but someone offered me $20 for one once and I nearly cried.

PLEASE TIP ARTISTS. 

ESPECIALLY IF YOU THINK THEY ARE UNDERCHARGING.

We pay our artists. We’ll do exchanges for Amazon items requested if we can afford it. It won’t be all the time, but we’ve been paying fair and commensurate. There are at least 2-3 artists we make requests. One artist we must save for, but worth it. Ideas need concept art. And we promote on all our sites.

DUNE remake is going to be really good.

Some #StarWars fans will easily move over to the Dune Lore. Some will be conflicted.

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:

Went through ISB checkpoint with my #MEGA cap on to remind stormtroopers that their jobs are disposable and they’re non-essential. Their credits come from the Emperor. What a galaxy we live in where we accept that.

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.
