Meta Music: What The Force Theme

Join Marie-Claire Gould (@mariecgould) as we explore the Music of Star Wars in our new segment Meta Music with Christy Carew (@Christy_Carew). We will explore everything from how it’s done to perhaps what it means.

Christy is a composer working in Hollywood and is a huge John Williams fan. She has been chosen as a composer fellow for the 2018 Sundance Institute Film Music Lab taking place this summer up at Skywalker Sound. She is also composing the music for the upcoming six-part documentary series about women in the Star Wars fandom, Looking for Leia. She is also an amazing Keyboard warrior on Tumblr. Check out her music and Meta’s at http://www.christycarew.com

In this episode we talk through the Force Theme and it’s meaning, generally gush about music, and talk about Christy’s first memories of Star Wars.

What the Fandom: Darths & Droids (Webcomic)

Join our host Marie-Claire Gould (@mariecgould) and our guests David Morgan-Mar (@dmmaus) and Andrew Shellshear (@shellshear) and in our segment ‘What the Fandom’ as we discuss the unparalleled Webcomic Darths and Droids which has been running for the last 11 years. This amazing comic is the parent venn diagram between Star Wars, Roleplaying games and headcanon. Come in, get your pre-rolled dice ready! Come listen to Marie-Claire Fangirl!

What is Darths & Droids?
Darths & Droids is an “RPG screencap comic”.

RPG – The characters in our comic are roleplaying game (RPG) players. The Game-Master (GM) guides the players as they take the roles of characters on a quest in a science-fiction universe.
Screencap – Our visuals come from screencaps (still frames) of Star Wars movies.
Comic – This means it’s funny. We hope.
