So for all you SK nuts out there who are living in Melbourne tune into Channel 31 on Thursday August 30 at 10pm.

And a big thanks to the guys at Planet Nerd for supporting the Knights. You KNOW we Rock!

UPDATE! Craig’s interview is now up at the Planet Nerd site. Check it out for an insight to one of this Century’s great fonts of creativity.

Knights: Slack F*ckers

Hi, it’s the SK Blogmaster here. Or as I’m known around the Citadel: Jar Jar Arse-Clown.

Anyway, I just looked at the calendar and realised we haven’t posted anything for 2 weeks. Sorry, acolytes.

So here’s some news:

Last week SUBURBAN KNIGHTS Writer-Director Craig ‘I still write with a crayon’ Tonkin did an interview for the crack, cutting-edge, uber-geek show Planet Nerd. The on-air date will be posted next week. So be sure to tune into Melbourne’s Channel 31 to check out our home-grown creative freak-boy.

Meanwhile, writing continues on SUBURBAN KNIGHTS: Episode 2. It’s becoming apparent that Episode 2 promises to be bigger, better and more expensive than Episode 1. We’ve decided to increase the budget to in excess of $50 to satisfy the mind-bending vision of our creative powerhouse Director. As a result we are making an open request for you fans of SUBURBAN KNIGHTS to express your interest in being an Extra. The cast promises to be huge! (Well at least more than 3 people). So we need nerds…erm, we mean people, who are commited, keen and hungry to join the SK family. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity so get on it! Leave a comment below or send an email via the SUBURBAN KNIGHTS website.

The Nerds Dig The Knights

Posted in News from the SK Citadel on August 7, 2007 by Tonk

Those wacky guys over at Planet Nerd have just given us a plug on their website. So being the freaking nice guys we are, we thought we’d reciprocate. So there, we just did.

To be honest, the world would be a much nicer place if more ‘Critics’ adopted this kind of outlook:

Once in a generation a film arrives which redefines what it means to be a series of images rapidly shown one-after-the-other on some kind of display surface.

This is that film.

It’s Aussie. It’s Star Wars. It’s… well, just go watch it. It’s worth it just to hear one Jedi shout to another “You SON of a BITCH!”. And it’s made right here in Melbourne!

Cheers, Planet Nerd.
