Sith and Spin Spin-along

Spin while watching/reading/listening to Sith stories, which, frankly, includes about 90% of Star Wars entertainment out there, so there’s plenty to choose from. Watch a Star Wars movie or TV show, listen to a Star Wars audiobook or podcast, or read a Star Wars book while spinning. Anything Sith-related goes, including Star Wars video games, video game Let’s Plays, fanfilms, and fanfiction if you can spin while enjoying those things.

This will be a casual 3-month-ish spin-along. A thread will be open in the Freakish Lemon Podcast group. Post a photo of what you’re working on and let us know what you’re watching/reading/listening to. This will also be a chatter thread. Spinning projects don’t have to be finished and your Sith entertainment does not have to be finished by the end of this spin-along; just spend some time with both over the next 3-months-ish, ending on October 1st. You can enter multiple times (photo and a blurb about your Sith story) to show your progress.

There will be prizes! Custom made batts and mini-batts from me!
