Video: Yet another Game of Thrones trailer

This one is fantastic (I can’t help it, I love Florence and the Machine) with a lot of new scenes (Tyrion in armor! The ‘ashes’ line!) I have to say I really appreciate that the TV series is rounding out Cersei.

Also noteworthy: The Simpsons’ couch gag last night spoofed the Game of Thrones opening titles.

The fourth is with Spike TV this week

“Contrary to what you’ve just seen, war is neither glamorous nor fun. There are no winners; only losers. There are no good wars, with the following exceptions: the American Revolution, World War II, and the Star Wars Trilogy. If you’d like to learn more about war, there’s lots of books in your local library, many of them with cool gory pictures.”

I doubt this Bart Simpson quote is what they had in mind, but Spike TV is celebrating the ultimate result of the first with an airing of the third next weekend. Which is to say, look for a Star Wars movie to air each night leading up to July 4 – beginning tonight at 6pm with The Phantom Menace.

Video: Top Star Wars/Simpson’s moments, plus classic video archive shake down

Sci-Fi Wire counts down the ten greatest Star Wars moments from The Simpson’s. Nothing you probably don’t already remember, but what the hell.

In other videoish news, io9’s Graeme McMillan is way too enamored of this Japanese Disco Star Wars thing. Don’t get me wrong, it’s kind of adorable, but five minutes in the our archives and I can dig up way better than that.

…Maybe I need to make a top ten list of my own.

You know things are slow when io9 is searching for meaning in an Adam Sandler movie

Has Star Wars become too ridiculous to satirize, or are Adam Sandler movies just crap? Pretty sure I know where I stand. On the plus side, Hardware Wars!

(At the risk of sounding like a South Park episode, second-rate The Simpsons mocked this exact issue with slightly more finesse a few years back. And bonus, it’s shorter.)

The fandom minute: Google, Simpsons and many lists

There’s a lot of io9 in this one… I probably ought to stop saving them up. Anyway, one of their readers spotted some Star Wars folks on Google Street View. Which isn’t that much of a surprise given that they’re hanging out on Hollywood Blvd., but whatever.
