stage stars

I’ve talked about this before in regards to Rogue One, but in general now; with the lack of a huge number of aliens as background soldiers (and I don’t just mean one or two here or there), and basically no aliens in the rebel leadership, across basically all Star Wars media so far, implies very shitty things about the Alliance’s attitude.

Because, given the humanocentric and xenophobic bent of the Empire, the aliens have even more of a reason to fight compared to any given human - but even taking that away, they have at least as much reason to fight, and… we’re not seeing them.

Why?

In terms of our universe it’s of course about budget and design and etc etc etc, but, seriously, not even in comics (Vader Down, for example, had a lot of rebel soldiers around, but all/most of those we see are human - and MALE, and in the cut scenes from RotS where the Alliance is being vaguely planned, no aliens. No aliens in the OT, not really any aliens in Rebels beyond the two in the protagonist main cast), and yet again; that implies very shitty things concerning the apparently human-centric “Alliance to Restore the Republic”. The problem is, these aren’t even things we’re really supposed to implicitly assume all things given, and yet they’re there.

If you do not put aliens (especially when you start to have the budget and the space, as Rogue One definitely should have, heck even TFA, as much as I don’t want to touch that) in your goddam rebellion to overthrow a corrupt government and they have at least as much reason, but probably far far more reason than any given human to fight…

We’re going to have to start to assume they’re being excluded, aside from these token bits and bobs of them.

And, well.

That implies nothing nice.

70s space capitalism: I have ennui because I want to go to school and have an exciting career but I’ll probably have to inherit my parent’s farm.  Unless I get drafted.  Throwback technology, vintage fashion, space donkeys.

90s space capitalism: I am a highly skilled laborer with unlivable wages and no social mobility.  I live with family.  CGI frog-man, wealth disparity, urbanization, cults :(

2016 space capitalism: I am a garbage-picker with a graduate degree in engineering.  I speak seven languages and live alone in dirt. Please give me food.  Cults? :)

[DOWNLOAD] Ensemble stars on stage english sub file

I have finally finished the ensemble stars on stage subtitles!!!!!!

Woah so it was a long path but I got there in the end haha

I didn’t sub the songs as it is a stage play not a musical so they weren’t needed for the story plus (apprently I don’t play the game) they are all songs from the game so when I’ve looked on the wikia for names the songs were already translated so I didn’t see there a need for me to translate.

Again like I’ve mentioned I don’t play the game so some names might be wrong if that’s the case please kindly tell me so I can correct them. Same with any translations or timings too.

This time I had the help of Paocchi_ on twitter who was a great help with the timings so thank you so much there! You were an amazing help!

So without further ado:

Please tell me of any problems and no reuploading. Enjoy ^.^

(Oh and btw I don’t own the raw file SO PLEASE DO NOT MESSAGE ME FOR THE RAW PLAY AS I DO NOT HAVE IT. It can be found on tumblr and on the livejournal tenimyutopia community)

The Helix Nebula in Infrared : What makes this cosmic eye look so red? Dust. The featured image from the robotic Spitzer Space Telescope shows infrared light from the well-studied Helix Nebula a mere 700 light-years away in the constellation of the Water Carrier Aquarius. The two light-year diameter shroud of dust and gas around a central white dwarf has long been considered an excellent example of a planetary nebula, representing the final stages in the evolution of a Sun-like star. But the Spitzer data show the nebulas central star itself is immersed in a surprisingly bright infrared glow. Models suggest the glow is produced by a dust debris disk. Even though the nebular material was ejected from the star many thousands of years ago, the close-in dust could have been generated by collisions in a reservoir of objects analogous to our own solar systems Kuiper Belt or cometary Oort cloud. Had the comet-like bodies formed in the distant planetary system, they would have survived even the dramatic late stages of the stars evolution. via NASA
