Everyone loves a good blooper reel from time to time.  The real treat is when it’s from a movie you didn’t think still had a blooper reel, i.e., films made prior to the late 80’s.  Luckily for us, Lucas and his team kept the bloopers from the original, Star Wars trilogy.  Check it out:

Humpday Links

Alright.  We tried this last Thursday and I thought we could give it one more whir.  Be sure to comment at the bottom and let me know what you think of a weekly links post.

  • The Salon media news website posted an article today featuring Star Wars: the Musical in its entirety.  Nothing like mid-90’s instruments and mid-90’s style, all captured on mid-90’s camcorders.
  • Also on-topic with fan-made tributes, Vimeo has an entire channel devoted to Star Wars fan films.  I’ll be going through them in the future and posting some favorites, but be sure to check it out in the meantime!
  • AMOG’s just posted an article about the Chilean Jedi Academy.  It may be a little late, but it has a lot more information than any earlier articles.
  • Lego Star Wars can get tricky.  Here’s the walkthrough for the latest version, Lego Star Wars III.
  • Need a new set of wheels? The AT-AT is officially on-sale for all your Rebellion crushing galactic conquest.
  • Maybe this isn’t exactly Star Wars related, but the article does reference the Star Wars kid, and apparently it’s an amazingly addictive game.
