388.19 // Benefit Concert cut short after controversial artist incites riot.

 

Everyone loves a good rags to riches story, and no one has had a more meteoric rise to fame in the last couple of years than musician Hela Amarggill. The Zeltron who grew up in the slums of Anthan Prime in the outer rim has taken the galaxy by storm. The out-spoken, unapologetic rockstar known best for his songs ‘Half the Galaxy Away’, ‘Love in a Hydrolift’ and ‘While my Vibrano Gently Weeps’ was the headline act at the ‘Victims of Vohai’ festival this weekend.

The benefit concert was created to raise money to support those killed and injured at the hands of the Revolutionary Council. However, after only 3 songs, Hela went on an expletive filled tirade attacking the Republic, Governor-General Ruun and Mother Mu’la accusing the war of being a mass conspiracy aimed to make the rich richer and the poor poorer.

His comments divided the crowd, and incited a riot. The remainder of his set was pulled, and Hela was taken into protective custody for his own safety immediately.

As of this point, there has been no further comment from concert organisers, Hela’s management or Hela himself.

Recently, Hela Amarggill sold out a cycle long string of dates at the Galactic Concert Hall on Coruscant for next year in a record time.

386.15 // G-TAF Results are finally here!

Last night, all eyes were firmly on the the Queen of the Core, Coruscant as it hosted the annual G-TAF (Galaxy – TV and Film) awards last night at the famous Sky Gallery Museum.

It was a who’s who of the Holo media industry, with faces from TV, Film and Radio all gathering to attempt to win a G-TAF, one of the most treasured prizes in the media and entertainment industry.

The final award and often most coveted ‘Unmissable TV Moment of the Year’ finally went to the Ono and Yuas show, previously nominated 11 times without a win, for their record breaking Jedi Special which aired only a couple of cycles ago.

Accepting their awards Ono and Yuas said

Finally! This is what it’s all been about. We love making the show and hope it continues for many more years. We’d like to thank in this moment, all the production crew, the producers, runners, make-up artists, without you guys it truly would not be possible.

We’d also like to thank the Jedi Order for their cooperation on this show, and Joran if you’re watching we’ll make sure we get a replica trophy to you!

It it believed that the episode which included a moment where a Jedi Knight was confronted by the mother of a missing child, improved remarkably public perception of the Order, as well as being directly attributed to preventing another attempted kidnapping.

384.22 // Rumours Surrounding the Nodal Prizes

You know what time of year it is, when prominent scientists throughout the galaxy go out to get a new haircut and buy a new set of clothes. It is time for the annual Nodal Prizes!

The prize is not only the pinnacle of achievement in science, it also comes with enough prize credits to buy a small moon. We know this because Reyus Dean, winner of last year’s prize in economics, did exactly that. The actual credits awarded is a closely guarded secret, but from Dean’s “moonastic” purchase we all know that it is ga-lactic!

This year, however, the chemists in academia may save themselves the haircut. Rumours has it that the Nodal Prize in Chemistry will not go to one of the major research institutions on the core planets. No, if the rumour is true, a young student at a Jedi temple may find themselves in an unusual situation and with a lot of credits. If this happens, it will be the first time that the chemistry prize is awarded outside of academia. Ever.

This rumour has obviously got a lot of mixed reactions from people throughout the galaxy. A lot of people feel that this signals a fresh initiative from the Nodal committee. But some of the scientists we spoke to feel that the Nodal Prizes should only be given to individuals who have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of true knowledge. If it is awarded to the Jedi, it would signal an endorsement of a particular set of religious views and ancient pseudoscience. Eric Waterhole from the Wideland Institute of Science and Technology said that “it would be a major disaster,” and “[he] cannot see how the committee could ever gain the trust of scientists again if they make this clearly politically motivated move. The Nodal Prize should not be a platform for political propaganda.”

The entrepreneur Alkur Nodal of Glee Anselm started several galactic companies throughout his career, including Artek Technologies, Omniware and Uplift Me. After his unfortunate early death during a visit to one of his mining companies in 322 ABY, his widowed wife, Eefie Nodal, established the Nodal Foundation and donated their entire fortune to it with the explicit purpose of funding a series of awards to living scientists throughout the galaxy who had made “an unusual and noteworthy breakthrough in their field”.

383.25 // A Threat to Tradition

Hosnian Prime, popular location and birthplace of the annual contest ‘Aptitude in the Galaxy’, closes its gates!

Upon demand of the people, worrying about the safety of their own children, the youth talent show is being cancelled effective 383.25.

This, of course, has stirred up the world of show business, as the popular contest was a means of discovery for many aspiring actors, actresses and singers around the Galaxy.

Host of the annual event, Giffy Connel had the following to say:

“It is unacceptable, outrageous and unthinkable! It falls down to authorities, of any given planet, to reinforce their own people. We should feel safe in our homes, our worlds! Not threatened about what may befall us! This is a sad day for the Galaxy. This is a sad day for Art and Culture.”

One cannot help but wonder about the developments that the future holds. For Hosnian Prime, and the Galaxy itself.
