TEP’s “The Last Jedi” episode: We Need Your Help!!

We are getting so close to Star Wars: The Last Jedi right now, and I am so excited!! Sadly, I won’t be getting to see this newest installment until after Christmas, but that won’t stop me from ramping up the excitement for the film with The Elven Padawan! Since you probably won’t be hearing a whole lot concerning The Last Jedi from me after the release, I’d like to try something new and fun before it, and I need all your help!

Some of you may have already seen this on my Twitter feed, but for those of you who haven’t, I still want your help. I’m trying to put together a “community input” episode for The Last Jedi. You know how many news channels often go out on the streets and ask random people they see questions concerning different things, then clip all these bits together into one presentation? I’ve always loved to watch those, so I’ve decided to try it out with The Elven Padawan podcast!

Here’s how it all works, as I posted about it on Twitter:

 

Does all that make sense? In short, I’m trying to collect as many people’s input on these questions as possible, then edit them all together and release the podcast in time for the premier of The Last Jedi.

Like I said in the tweets, you don’t have to do anything fancy. Just let me know if you’re interested (you can email me at: shay@elvenpadawan.com), and I’ll send you the all the info, including the questions and instructions for how to get them back to me, and you can be part! And like I said, all you have to have is a smartphone, tablet, or computer with an audio recorder (which almost all devices have reloaded onto them when purchased), and some excitement for The Last Jedi.

As of right now I have a few people interested, but I’d like to get this out as much as possible and get as many people as I can involved. It’s a fun project that I’m really excited to see turn out, and I think it might help gather some more attention for The Elven Padawan. So if you have friends or family members who might be interested as well, pass this on to them, or get together in a group and record all your answers at once!

I know this is a bit of a short notice, as The Last Jedi releases at midnight Friday morning for most people, and many are getting in to see it even earlier than that on Thursday, and I’m hoping to get it out Thursday night at the latest. But I still think we can do this and make it awesome with your help. 🙂

So who’s up for it?? Cummon, Star Wars fans, let’s do this thing!! 😀

An update from Shay…

Hey guys, I just wanted to let all my readers here on The Elven Padawan blog know what’s going on right now….

Some of you may have already seen my tweets on this subject, but for those who haven’t, here’s the deal:

I’ll still be hanging around to chat with you guys in the comments as much as possible, and I’ll still probably be keeping up with the happenings on Twitter a small bit, but at least until the end of this week, my work with TEP will be very minimal. I just wanted to let you all know so you don’t give up on my return, or think I’ve given up on this craziness we call a fandom. 😉

Also, there have been some rather unexpected recent happenings in the Middle-earth realm, and I’ll probably be adding some new sections to this site soon to accommodate for that.

And also be looking for some overall changes in general, as I’m trying to update a couple other aspects of all this to go alongside my brand-new podcast intro! Nothing too major, but I’m looking to try out some new ideas as I’ve gotten a better feel for what I’m aiming at here, and am finally beginning to find my place in this community.

Until my galaxy is free again!

The Elven Padawan: From Erebor to Echo Base – #8 – Tolkien Week 2017

 

 

 

 

In this episode recorded during Tolkien Week 2017, Shay and guest Max talk about – try to guess – that’s right, Tolkien! Finally getting to the “Erebor” part of “From Erebor to Echo Base”, Shay gives the history on Tolkien Week and Hobbit Day, then jumps into a discussion of Middle-earth, including The Silmarillion, books vs. movies, connections between Tolkien’s world and Christian theology, and more! (She even manages to sneak a Star Wars Rebels connection in there.)
Also, Shay has some updates for listeners on what’s going on with The Elven Padawan, as well as a brand-new intro for the podcast!
Quick note: please excuse the audio quality in Shay’s portions of this episode. Once again, ‘that glitch’ returned to plague her, but this should be the very last occurrence of that evil nasty.
