E Society Podcast, Rogue Friday, SneakerHeadz, Nike Mags, Atlanta, Westworld, Luke Cage, and Fall Movies. Preview of Podcasts to come.

Just a little supplement for the podcast. Seems like i always get away from this blog. Especially since I started doing the at least 1 post a day thing on Instagram. Definitely my social of choice the past few years. If you don't already follow check it out. always posting about collecting, Star Wars, The Golden State Warriors, SF Giants, Denver Broncos, Movies and TV.

So The Nez is off to NYCC, The New York Comic Con so we won't be recording a pod this week. I might record a solo one, but this gives me the chance to write about the pod here right quick. Been meaning to since The Nez invited me to join the cast.

You can find it on itunes at  itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-mac-nez-podcast/id1118732523?mt=2

or search for SK8ER NEZ Podcast Network

You can also listen at  http://macnezpodcast.podbean.com/ If you access the pod on this page you can listen to both the Mac Nez podcast as well as our E Society pods right on the page.

We've recorded pods on The Rogue One trailer, The Get Down, Fall TV. The Nez often records on his favorite horror movies and recently recorded a pod on Judge Dredd. Check em out.

Since we aren't recording this week i thought i'd drop a little here on a few topics that we'll get into next time we record.

This last Friday, September 30th, was Rogue Friday. The first collectibles and merch from Rogue One hit. Picked up items from the Black Series, Basic figure line, and Funko Pop.

 Baze and Chirrut teamup. 2 of the new Rogue One Pops. One of the many posts you'll see over on my instagram. We'll get into our Force Friday experiences as well next pod.

Recently checked out a doc on netflix. Sneakerheadz. I've dabbled in sneaker collecting, but with the Star Wars colection my main focus, I usually just keep up with posts and not really a ton of sneaker buying. My 2 most recent pairs, from a couple years ago some custom KD's with Warriors colors(It's like I could see it coming:) Anyways it was kind of cool to watch this doc and see some of the things i've seen on the net as far as collectors and these limited releases. Always interesting explaining it to friends and family who can't wrap their heads around it.

So yeah while I don't partake as much as i maybe would if funds weren't an issue, this is something i could totally relate to. If not with shoes, on a collecting level. It was at the top of the list of trending or popular films on netflix so it should be pretty easy to find. I know Nez follows skateboarding and they get into a little bit of it's influence. Check it out it your intrigued. :)

Oh and speaking of sneakers. Nike is releasing another 89 pairs of Nike Mags. The back to the future shoe. "In partnership with the Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), Nike will provide everyone an opportunity to win one of the only pairs of the adaptive-lacing Nike Mag. In total, there are fewer than 100 pairs available globally through The Draw, which begins today, October 4, and ends October 11, 2016. The winners will be notified on October 17, 2016." https://www.nike.com/snkrs/thread/6b50313850e6afcf3e587b474265acb9588efc55

Yeah it's a long shot to win, but hey $10 and 100% of the proceeds will go to the MJFF to help find a cure for Parkinson’s. So that's cool, worth a shot. If you did win they would be awesome to have, but at the same time you could probably get a pretty insane price for em so they might be hard to hold on to. Take some pics with em first. :)

We recently recorded a fall tv preview where I talked about loving the new tv show Atlanta. So good. If you haven't checked it out i highly recommend it.

A clip from not only my favorite episode, but probably my favorite episode of tv this year. Ep 4. The Streisand Effect. Check it out :)

Westworld premiered this last Sunday night.

We'll definitely get into this show on the pod. Some interesting things going on. I know Hbo wants this to be their new Thrones. It may not be that, but a lot to figure out.

Luke Cage went up on netflix on Rogue Friday also. After 2 seasons of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, the 3rd Defender is here.

The Nez rolled through the season quick. I'm 5 episodes in. I really like what I've seen so far. The Gang starr titled episodes. Use of Hip Hop. Cage's take on what Daredevil did with a hallway fight. I'm sure i'll finish the season before next week when we record, so i'm sure we'll talk about Cage as well. :)

We'll also get into a fall movie preview. We don't plan to talk about every movie. Just a handful. We've already past September so some of them are out like Magnificent Seven which is only film I went to see in theaters during September. Going to see The Girl on the Train this weekend.

Definitely gonna be talking more about Rogue One. And more Fall movies.

So yeah not sure how many of these writes up i'll do but definitely check out the pod. We'll be talking about all this stuff.

The Nez will be checking in with a few mini casts on what he's sees at NYCC so check that out too.

Zissou's Outfit lineup. First 7 outfits Swtor 3.2 OutFit Designer.

Couldn't wait for this feature. The Outfit Designer! I always enjoyed outfitting characters in this game. As seen when i did the big post last summer on how i outfitted all my characters and their companions. I spent a few hours yesterday jumping around characters and outfitting. Seemed only fitting i make a post. Starting with Zissou's outfits. Most of these are outfits from his past. A few spiced up. I wanted to make sure i left a good amount of sots oen for future outfits and ideas. And i have all the other characters to outfit as well. 

Starting with one of my favorite outfits Zissou wore during 2013. Actually just the chest piece, all the other parts of this are from newer sets. So an updated look on a classic :P Kind of like a Sith Bounty Hunter. The chest-piece CZ-5 Armored Assault. Mandalorian Clansman Helmet(Hidden atm) and Bracers. Unbreakable Veteran Gloves, Belt, Legs, and Boots.

Outfit for at least the last months. Naga Sadow Chestplate, Gloves, and Bracers. Marka Ragnos Helmet, and Belt. KDY Shipwright legs. Dreadseed Boots.

Pvp armor from years ago. The Elite War Hero Weaponmaster full set.

The first pvp set. Centurion Weaponmaster set. And it's close to the Marr Look with more Black and Grey.

The Winter Look. Thermal Retention Goggles, Belt, and Bracers. Polar Exploration Jacket dyed Blue and Brown. Dread Forged Weaponmaster Gloves. Mandalorian Clansman Legs. Obroan Weaponmaster Boots.

Tulak Hord set.

The Original Revan Set.

Tough choices. And want to make sure to have room for future ideas, sets, and other characters. More to come.

Day 5 Zissou's Tatooine Marketplace Cantina Stronghold in Star Wars The Old Republic - Post 5 of 5

The posting is now complete with today's 5 of 5 post of Zissou's Tatooine Marketplace Cantina Stronghold. I'm sure I will continue to have posts about design and photos of my strongholds, but this was one of my first goals. Photos of the Tat stronghold once it was 100%ed.

Finishing big with The Hanger. This was the first expansion I opened when first getting the stronghold. Have the vehicles lined up around the starship in the middle. Also I have the ops boss posters surrounding on the walls.

-The Hanger

Entrance way with pvp posters and Cage of the Tormented.

Fury-Class Imperial Interceptor and the start of the Animal rides.

KDY Lifter and vehicle lineup.

Better shot of the Animal rides. Start of the ops posters. Put them in order.

This side has most of the larger size vehicles.

The other side of the larger vehicles.

The last of the ops posters until the expansion.

Couple of Pod Racers in the mix.

A couple of the Gree Sphere vehicles.

Most of the slimmer vehicles.

Slimmer vehicles.. One especially of note in the middle from the chevin event the busted speeder that leaves a smoke trail.

Fury-Class Imperial Interceptor from the front with a view of the balcony.

So that's that. Only about a week and a half until the expansion. Glad I got to post these, I was always looking forward to the houses in the game. They've been pretty good. Could of been better, but i'm glad we have them.

I'll probably make another post soon with more of the weekly pictures I've been taking for conquests. I've leveled a few characters  during 12x xp. I already had the 8 55's but added a merc, jugg, and close to adding a sent to the mix. The sent will be good so i can send zissou's old gear over. Anyways thanks for checking out the stronghold. I post Swtor pics even more consistently over on instagram if you wanna follow over there   or search by the tag #SwtorFamily and see a good amount of my posts.

And one more time the previous days.

Day 4 Zissou's Tatooine Marketplace Cantina Stronghold in Star Wars The Old Republic - Post 4 of 5

Day 4. Almost there. Pent tent day. Always had a plan to have these pets set up. Only recently when they lifted the limt on them was I able to place all these. This is my first set up for these guys but I may eventually theme them with other items.

-Pet Tent

Orobird on the front line in the middle. The first pet I can remember in the game.

Side view.

Behind the pets with a slight view of the krayt skeleton.

Day 3 Zissou's Tatooine Marketplace Cantina Stronghold in Star Wars The Old Republic - Post 3 of 5

Day 3 brings the marketplace in Zissou's Tatooine Marketplace Cantina Stronghold. For awhile I didn't have too many ideas for this part of the stronghold. When the tents arrived it all kind of fell into place. Made sense to move the Jawa's down and surround them with items. Pretty happy with the end result.


 The view as you enter the marketplace. Just happened to catch the balloon as it passed. The krayt Dragon Skeleton looming over marketplace is the newest addition.

The Jawa vendors and their goods.

More goods under another tent and another vendor booth.

Tuk’ata Research Table and egg clusters.

Glimpse into the hanger. Ancient Burial Urn from Athiss and Statue of a Noble Beast.

Wall of Banners. And a good shot of the Tribal Blade Totem.

Kingpin's Rancor from this last summer's casino event. Tribal Campfire and Tribal Camp Arrangement.

Not too much in the Mid court area. Sculptural fountain, Fusion Generator.

Rakata Energy Pylon, Fusion Generator, and a glimpse of the Krayt Dragon Skelton in the back.

KDY Bomber.


Pet Tent tomorrow.
