Post #100

Posted in The KNIGHTS on September 18, 2009 by Tonk

Yes! It only took about 2 and a half years of running this puerile blog, but we finally got the post count into triple figures. Of course, it means nothing. But it makes us feel better when we log into the blog dashboard.

This blog was originally set up to bring you all the news on the development of the SUBURBAN KNIGHTS production. But to be honest, that news is pretty much few and far between owing to the often drawn-out nature of self-funded filmmaking. So as a result, this blog has become more of a forum for us to rant about crap loosely related to Suburban Knights, Star Wars and just about anything that we think deserves to have something said about it.

We’ve said it before, but its worth stating again: making films is hard. Especially films that you’re paying for yourself. Everyone who has contributed towards the making of SUBURBAN KNIGHTS has done so either out of their own generosity or the fact that we nagged them to the point of near insanity. I’d just like to once again thank all those who’ve helped us make this rather self-indulgent, and lets face it, idiotic, little fan-film project happen. It’s near-impossible to make films on your own. You’re always going to need help. And we are very fortunate that help has always been available. Albeit on the promise of a free lunch and several slabs of beer!

So now SUBURBAN KNIGHTS Episode 2: DEATH CRUSH is complete and mere weeks away from debut. We can’t wait to unleash its raw artistic power on the poor, unsuspecting internet.

We hope you enjoy it. Sure, it’s stupid, pointless and says fuck all about the state of the World, Global Warming, Animal Cruelty or anything remotely relevant. But that’s the way we want it. For us, films are about escapism and having fun. And hopefully, if nothing else, that’s what you get from watching Suburban Knights. We know it’s not perfect, but then again, what is? ( maybe ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ ).

So be sure to check back here on October 22nd. That’s when SK2 will be online at the SUBURBAN KNIGHTS website. In the meantime, here’s a rare image of our elusive Producer wishing the SK Community all the best. He’s allowed out on weekends for good behaviour..



Knights: ‘Toon Stylings

Our crack squad of artists have been working on a ‘Toon Style version of your favourite suburban warriors. Sweet.



Knights: Coming of The Age

Death Strike

Well thanks to a favourable mention on The Age website this week, Suburban Knights viewership has gone through the roof! This past Friday our hits went up 8,000%. Yes you read that right, 8,000%. Pretty impressive, hey?

Anyway, The Knights just wanna say thanks to everyone for your positive feedback and words of encouragement. After busting our collective nuts to bring you Episode 1: The Reckoning it’s nice to know that people are actually out there watching it!

Now what would be really nice is if you could send in some cash to help us pay for all this additional bandwidth we’re having to purchase. I mean, the Citadel doesn’t pay for itself you know!

Keep a lid on it

We’ve been getting lots of fan mail. No really, stacks of the crap. We’ve had to knock through one of the walls of the Citadel to make room for it. And Obi Wan-Ker’s had to start sleeping in the kitchen. Anyway, the question often comes up: “So when’s ‘Suburban Knights Episode 2’ come out? Huh? When? WHEN!?”. So we thought we’d bring you up to speed. Because we’re like that. We care about our fanbase. We really do.

Bottom line is: Don’t sweat. It’s going through the writing stage now. Unfortunately our writer is such a fussy and particular creative savant that it could take anywhere between 5 minutes and 37 years before he’s finished. Talented bastard. Anyway, rest assured, its coming. We want to do the right thing by Death and Wan-Ker and that means putting together a script that is top notch. Top NOTCH. And not the Kindergarten standard rubbish we dished out for Episode 1.

Knights Own the Globe

Yeah, we know you think we’re brilliant, but in case you needed any further evidence, here are some quotes regarding SK: Episode One from around the World:

Hey, that is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever seen with my eyes. And that includes the low flying chinook helicopter I saw at the weekend! Lightsabers + copious swearing in Aussie accents = justice
Plus, I love the psy-trance soundtrack! It momentarily made me forget the bad news that Pepper’s burgers has closed down

That is utterly, utterly brilliant

Utterly awesome! Looks like you guys are having lots of fun back home in Aus…. and makes my day of waiting in for the plumber to fix my kitchen tap seem quite dull. Looking forward to the next episode!

I was looking for ‘Girls Gone Wild XII’ but came across this instead. You guys are some sick-ass Mothers. You rock!!!!

What’s the point, freaks?

Death here again. OK so many of you have already started to pose the inevitable question:

“Why the Hell do the Knights need a blog? I mean aren’t they too cool for that?”

Short answer is yes. We are too cool. Well at least I am. Obi Wan-Ker is a complete nerd. But the sad fact is that this is the best way that we can get our views out to you on a regular and simple basis.

This is where we will be doing all sorts of whacky and zany things like posting reviews, adding social commentary and engaging in cutting-edge, no holds barred, cerebral tug-of-wars with our globe-spanning fan base.

So be sure to check back here on a daily basis. Or I’ll cut each and everyone of you a new one.

Darth Death here……okay, so I’m kinda new to this whole blogging thing. So be patient. Patience, I said! Shut up! Anyway, I suppose I’d better welcome you geeks to the new SUBURBAN KNIGHTS blog. This whole blog thing was Obi Wan-Ker’s idea. The next time I see him I’m gonna kick his arse for lumbering me with having to post on this thing on a regular basis. Bastard.
I’ll be back soon. I’m going for a beer.
