Video Monday

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

Starwars.com roundup

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.

Mary Gets Serenaded

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.

Bob Eubanks apology

DJ Maul wrote to Bob Eubanks about the Rose Parade annoucer’s discourteous comments regarding the 501st (“They need to get jobs.”) and recieved 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.

Y HALO THAR 2007

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…
