Rose Bowl Highlights from Starwars.com, with a lot of footage you won’t see elsewhere, including Mary’s serenade. Also from Pasadena, The Troopers on the Bus and Disco Steve, (not Sansweet) who appears to be… I don’t know.
All the stuff I didn’t link last week
More behind the scenes coverage of the Rose Parade: This time, the trials and tribulations of decorating the floats. Or, for the kids, make your own on a much smaller scale.
Finally, the story of Rose Parade spare Vader Andrew Page can be revealed. And apparently there were folks from E! filming a reality show? Or perhaps E! and a reality show? Huh.
It’s a rare thing for us to see Mary Franklin flustered.
It only lasts a few minutes, but you can see her just a wee bit flumoxed as she is serenaded by some very talented members of the Grambling State Band, as seen in this video.
She, of course, gets over it quickly and appears to be quite enjoying it. Lucky Mary!
Thanks to Jimmy from GA501st for the tip that this was finally posted.
Tonight, on Baltar’s Basestar… the Battlestar Galactica Season 3 Gag Reel. Waaaatttccch iiitttt. (Warning: Language above and beyond ‘frak’.)
Two more Star Wars PSAs: Candy Wagon and Podracers.
Rose Parade humor: Stormtrooper gets dressed down by drill instructor, Jimmy Kimmel mocks.
Yoda Spears. I… I… I don’t know. But it’s brilliant anyway.
Dancing stormtrooper action
DJ Maul wrote to Bob Eubanks about the Rose Parade annoucer’s discourteous comments regarding the 501st (“They need to get jobs.”) and received an apology. There’s also word that Eubanks made a public apology, but the main source seems to be a now-deleted entry on a Livejournal community. I’ll be keeping an eye on 501st.com for further news.
ETA: L.A. TFNers are saying that Eubanks was taking calls on Mike & Brian, a local radio show.
It’s the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, so expect… stuff. Yeah! Also, Rose Parade rehearsal pics.
More Rose Parade coverage:
Several fans on TFN report that LFL people were taping the parade for a DVD release (or Hyperspace, maybe?) Just the sort of thing one would expect on the inevitable Saga box set…
How was the parade? L.A.’s KTLA has video clips, the Spectacular being about 5 minutes into part 5. You can also vote for your favorite float.
Bob Eubanks is kind of a jerk, but the Spectacular won a Tournament Special Trophy, so who needs him?
One fan, ValedaKor of Los Angeles FanForce, has posted her pictures from the crowd.
