August 30, 2013

Bored this long weekend? Take a gander at the SWPAS Tumblr, where I reblog many of the cool things I find on Tumblr as well as posting stuff stored on my own hard-drive.

PT Reference On “Heroes Of Cosplay”

August 28, 2013

It was actually in last week’s episode of SyFy’s “Heroes Of Cosplay,” not the one that aired 8/27, but there were some clips from the recap of the 8/21 episode.

The show follows a group of BNFs, er, cosplayers who compete in contests on the convention circuit. One competitor–not a featured member of the “cast”–got on the stage at Seattle’s Emerald City Comic Con in a rather splendid Queen Amidala getup from TPM. You can see a pic of it here.

Final Clone Wars Episodes On Apple TV?

August 28, 2013

That’s what Jedi News is saying: Disney plans on creating an app/channel on Apple TV that will have all kinds of exclusive Star Wars content, including the Clone Wars last episodes, Rebels bonus stuff, and behind-the-scenes peeks at Episode VII.

The good news is I have Apple TV. The bad news, it’s the ancient version. Gee, time for an upgrade :/.

TFN posits that the content might be available on a variety of venues, making the content more widely available. I sure hope so. I’ve been an Apple girl since 1984 but it would be crazy to keep Star Wars stuff from those who use don’t have Apple products. Or the latest versions of those products.

By the way, guess who’s Disney’s biggest shareholder? The estate of Steve Jobs.

Jimmy Smits On “Miami Vice”

August 25, 2013

Another future prequel star had an early role on “Miami Vice.” Just before he got cast on “L.A. Law,” Jimmy Smits appeared in the first season episode “Brother’s Keeper” that aired back in 1984.

I apologize for the obvious camera aimed at the television video but it was the best I could find that featured Smits:

Poor Smits, always doomed to be blown up.

Cute Kids’ Shirt

August 22, 2013

Snappykid has a cute if not slightly morbid t-shirt available in onesies up through a kids’ large, depicting all of the major lightsabers in the saga along with a count of er, limbs lost. Looks like Obi-Wan wins that contest!

It’s too bad it’s not available for grownups!
