It is with a heavy, sad heart that I am writing to announce that my webpage that I have used for the past 2.5 years for my Scene it on Friday’s is no longer active. I visited today to find out that the domain had expired and the website author has not renewed it.
I’m at a loss. Scene it on Fridays have been a staple at this blog for a long time and I enjoyed writing my observations on the scenes. The closest webpage I could find that could help me out was: http://department.monm.edu/classics/starwars.htm. I guess I could do a little more work and actually look up the script with these scenes…but I noticed these scenes were a little off.
For instance, on that webpage, every movie has exactly 50 scenes. What? I know that the PT had over 100 scenes for each of its movies because it was something I observed frequently. The PT had a lot of shorter, smaller scenes while the OT had longer scenes, but less of them per movie.
So what do I do? I’m really just completely bummed but I still want to keep a standing Friday series. I emailed the address they had listed, so we’ll see what happens but just in case he doesn’t respond…
My mom always told me that “When one door closes, another one opens,” and I do believe that so maybe this is a sign that it’s time to put my Scene It’s to rest now. I’m reluctant to let them go because of how much I loved doing them, but maybe all I need is another idea.
The only thought I really had was doing Friday Fives. Every week I pick the five best/most interesting topics to write about. (It’s also kind of a nod to Fives from TCW) So “5 Best Scenes from ESB” or “5 Best Ships Seen on Coruscant” or “5 Best Stormtrooper Lines” (lol that would be funny). The only thing that worries me about that, is how long until I run out? Could that go on indefinitely?
I’m really at a loss. Does anyone have any ideas for me and where you think I should go?
