Monday Funny: Kylo Cameo

September 12, 2016 at 4:31 am | Posted in Humor, Monday Funny, Star Wars | Leave a comment

So apparently the Atlanta Braves do some kind of tool race as a sponsorship for Home Depot. Well, for Star Wars night they had a special guest.

As funny as Kylo’s cameo may be, that stupid paint can is the thing that really made me laugh. Enjoy!

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 37 talks about the podcast Daisy Ridley did, the Ep. VIII title, Rogue One news, magazine pics, listener feedback and their main discussion focuses on Lobot. Fun episode.

Blast Points: Episode 38 starts with some discussion of Ep. VIII news, a Yoda puppet rumor, the newly revealed Rogue One toys, the synopsis for Catalyst, and a tidbit on Mon Calamari. Then they head into their main discussion dealing with Genndy Tartakovsky’s 2003 Clone Wars micro series. They talk about the characters, the episodes, and the similarities and differences with TCW. Fun stuff with great observations. Definitely worth a listen.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 86 begins with some drinking tales which leads to whales and whiskey. For long time listeners, it’s no surprise, as this is the kind of thing that makes Brews and Blasters stand apart and so appealing. Joe and Chris have fun no matter what way the discussion is going, and it always comes back to Star Wars. In this one, they bring it around for a look at all the cool new Rogue One toys that have been revealed. Great episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
