Independence Day speech clip and text!


My traditional posting of one of film’s great speeches with text so you can recite it.

President Whitmore’s Speech From Independence Day

“Good morning. Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world, and you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. Mankind, that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences any more. We will be united in our common interest. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We’re fighting for our right to live, to exist. and should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice, ‘We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on, we’re going to survive.’ Today we celebrate our independence day!”

Support Brick Journal


TwoMorrows publishes BrickJournal, a LEGO focused magazine. They also publish LEGO books and comic related magazines. They have been hit hard by the shutdown. Barnes & Noble stores and comics shops where they sell their products are all shut down. Like the much of the publishing industry, their distributors are shut down. See my previous post about Dynamite books Indiegogo.

They have had to destroy printed copies of their newest issue of BrickJournal. The issues were stuck in shipping, They were sitting in a warehouse and could not be delivered. The publisher would have to pay rent on the issues while the sat there or pay for special delivery. So to save money, those issues were destroyed.

R2-KT and The Child challenge coin


There’s a new R2-KT challenge coin on the way. This one uses a redesign of a patch. The coin displays  R@-KT on onside and the child on the other. Sales of the coin benefit the United Way Covid-19 World Relief Fund. 

The patch was designed to show separation by how we positioned the characters, but the coin makes it even more clear: R2-KT on one side, the Child (aka Baby Yoda) on the other. Separated, but never far apart.

R@_KT and The Child with hearts in between them. Text sasy "hug you I can with the force."
