Book 18: Mandatory Failure — Part I

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

There has been quite a bit of noise on social media regarding the spoiler content in reviews of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, so I’ll be even less specific than I usually am when reviewing things that might easily be spoiled.

I saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Yay! Good Star Wars movie. Better than the previous two (which is a reasonably high bar to clear) and much better than the three that came before those (but that’s a very low bar.) Comparisons with the original trilogy are probably not useful, but if I had to sit down in front of a Star Wars movie again, right now, it would be this one.

That’s it for now.


Do You Design T-Shirts?

UPDATE: We have the applications we need! Thank you for your interest.

Sandra and I are looking to engage the services of a designer for a new round of Schlock Mercenary t-shirts. This will be a work-for-hire project that pays a flat fee for each design, plus a slice of the purchase price for each shirt sold.

We want awesome designs that will work well with silk-screening, discharge printing, and other fabric-related technologies. Familiarity with Schlock Mercenary is not required, but is always kind of nice. For scheduling purposes, the bulk of the work will be done during January of 2018.

Applicants should email with samples of their work and a short resume that highlights experience in this space. A link to an online art portfolio is a plus. We’ll be accepting applications through December 30th, or until the position has been filled.
