Cheers all, very much appreciate you all helping to stop this from carrying on.



It's not the discussion in Star Wars threads that is the garbage fire, its what the Star Wars threads are about that is concerning. From Kelly Marie Tran being driven off social media due to constant harassment, to 'fans' wanting to finance a complete remake of TLJ and thinking that threatening to not purchase any more merchandise would be suitable leverage, to this. The fandom has been suffering from these deplorables and they have been generating headlines and, consequentially, threads.

Also, it's great that in a thread about a group of professional podcasters manufacturing their own propaganda in order to incite harassment against a Lucasfilm employee, that is what you chose to be the most concerned about.

First all, don't. You don't know me and you don't know where my concern is. As far as I'm concerned it's a forgone conclusion that whoever the fuck these people are they are POS. My point as I stated was this place has been a bastion for the most part of civility. If I misunderstood what was being said in to OP so be it.

still plenty of news being released. New books, comics, toys, rumors etc
Yeah, there's enough new Star Wars shit to talk about. Maybe not every single week, maybe not even once every two weeks, but enough where you could put one out semi-regularly.

Sadly, any episodes recently would just be about another terrible thing the Star Wars community did. Might as well just have a 'What Bullshit Did They do This Week' section in the podcast.

I mean I don't understand why you wouldn't want to be completely anonymous with how fucking weird people are. Do you want to die via swatting? What job do you have where you'd ever need a bunch of strangers need to know your internet persona?

And then move into Kevin J. Anderson’s oeuvre. Treat it seriously. Devote an entire podcast run to each book.
Goddamn the first EU books I read was Anderson’s Jedi Academy and I was pissed about Star Wars for years. Well, maybe just Kevin Anderson.
... specifically just that story.

... and by pissed, I would just tell the story about how the EU had a story about this super amazing new Jedi character that was stronger than Luke, instant friends with Han, and pilots The Sun Crusher (bigger Death Star) BY HIMSELF. And then I’d say that’s why I don’t read the EU but the truth was I didn’t want more stuff on my backlog.

Why is Ethan Van Schiver in all those posts? He’s a comic artist. Please tell me he’s not in on this shit too.

I'm going to link directly to the audio in Mana's OP because it needs to be heard loud and clear: these men are pure trash. Sexist, ignorant, trash.
Mhmmmm, mhmmmmm, mhmmmmm...

So, about what you'd expect from a bunch of obsessive white male nerds. It's always the fault of women or minorities, if not both at once.

He's one of the primary instigators. He produces the "Soylo" T-Shirts.
Is every comic artist alt-right/MRA type at the moment? It seems that way.

Was this the story that had the valley of the Jedi or something that gave you instant force powers or was that just in the game?

EVS went from "a right wing artist" through "people trying to censor me over my believes" to "let's restart gamergate, this time in comics; oh wait I am fired from DC, well now I have a lot of free time to shitpost about culture wars on twitter, btw support my battletoads knock off kickstarter"

His support of Trump got him placed on a lot of people's shitlists, his anti-'SJW' rhetoric turned into anti-'Star Wars SJW' rhetoric, and he's managed to leverage the dark side of the Star Wars fanbase for massive financial gain (notably in the form of an otherwise unrelated crowd-funded comic book).

This is just fucking sad. I used to listen to these guys back in my college days when I was more into Star Wars than I am now and they seemed like the nicest, coolest nerds on the planet. They were the last ones I would have ever thought would join in with the "anti-SJW" bullshit going on within the Star Wars fanbase right now. Then again I haven't listened to them in a few years so maybe folks who'd been paying more attention saw this coming.

Goddamn I fucking hate Ethan Van Sciver. The dude is the answer to the question, "What if Frank Miller hated women instead of Muslims and he wouldn't shut the fuck up about it on Twitter?" He's the modern day poster child for the comics industry producing bitter, shitty dudes.

Star Wars fans just keep having a shitty summer - largely due to themselves though, so I can't really feel sad about it.
Don't worry, there's a hot new Star Wars podcast for y'all

Off-topic, but Chapo's the only podcast I've ever thought about subscribing to (in small part due to them locking some episodes behind a paywall).

What a fucking prick you are, anonymous asshole man.

"he said a lot of stuff"

And then you're gonna sit there and feign surprise that over the course of the last four years some ugly, insecure, anonymous maladjusted internet gamergate pissbabies might have thrown themselves headfirst over the line to do something awful to and/or at me. Like they haven't done this. Fuck, like it didn't happen HERE, back when here was all jug-eared and Orange colored.

I don't even post here and you're STILL fucking nursing your pencildick over the fact people paid attention to me.

It's a thread about a shitty presence in Star Wars fandom removing themselves from a shitty social media platform and all you wanna do is talk about ME and goof on total strangers sending candy dicks to my home address like that's a thing I should expect because "he said a lot of stuff."

Man, fuck you. Fuck Shintoki too. You cowardly, petty, anonymous fuck.

Enjoy your comfy purple circle jerk where nobody ever has to put their name and their face on anything and you never have to own your shit.
I miss your posts a lot tbh

I listened to them for ten years. Over that time I got hints now and then that they were conservative voters, but they usually kept Star Wars and politics separate. So I figured I could keep listening.

They even used to heavily promote Ashley Epstein's "Her Universe" clothing line for female Star Wars fans. But I guess they were only okay with it as long as women didn't try to get equal representation.

I'm really sad to see them go down this hole.

What the hell is with that line about all the men being replaced with women?

We get one female jedi and a lady hero in a spinoff and the world goes fucking insane.
