Okay, this hovering StarWars Death Star Bluetooth speaker is pretty fantastic, providing you with about six hours of streaming along with the novelty of Star Wars, levitation and glow-in-the-dark effects.

But that’s not the whole story. Oh no, not in the least. Some of these Photoshopped product photos are pretty bloody spectacular. Check them out below.

OK Go is known for their amazing music videos, but this…THIS! They’ve really outdone themselves.

The video for “Upside Down & Inside Out” was shot entirely in zero gravity over the course of 21 flights thanks to Russia’s S7 Airlines. They used a total of 2 hours and 15 minutes of weightlessness to pull off some amazing shots.

life after death star

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far, away, Notorious B.I.G. wandered into a little cantina and a Star Wars/Biggie mashup was born.

Well, sort of. In this case, it’s Solar Slim and Richie Branson who’ve mashed up music by Notorious B.I.G. and the music of Star Wars to create an album called Life After Death Star.

The Big Poppa/Duel of the Fates mashup is fan-frickin’tastic. Take a listen to a few tracks below.

The Doctor Who anniversary news just keeps coming with the announcement of The Light at the End, an all new 100-minute story featuring Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy and Paul McGann. They’ll be reprising their roles as the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Doctors who team up to fight the Master (Geoffrey Beevers). The Doctors will also be joined by some of their companions and additional not yet announced characters from the television series.

“We wanted to do a proper, fully-fledged multi-Doctor story for this very special occasion,” says writer, director and executive producer Nicholas Briggs, “and it’s wonderful that all the surviving Doctors threw themselves behind the project so enthusiastically. That’s not to say the first three Doctors don’t appear – we wanted to pay homage to the whole history of the classic series.”

The production will be available as a 5-disc limited edition that includes two hour-long documentaries and a Companion Chronicles tale called The Revenants or as a standard 2-disc edition. You can preorder now with a release date sometime in November.

You can never do all the things you want to do at conventions; it’s impossible. You have to pick and choose, and the cool stuff always happens at the same time. Smuggler’s Gambit, an original Star Wars radio drama, was performed live at Celebration VI, and I couldn’t attend. I was bummed. Luckily for all of us though, the 35 minute tale has been made available for everyone to enjoy.

The story penned by Kyle Newman and F.J. DeSanto revisits the period right after the Battle of Yavin; Han Solo questions whether he really belongs with the Rebel Alliance and he and Chewbacca wander off on their own and stumble into adventure. It’s action-packed, fun, and brought to life by crazy talented voice actors like Dave Collins, Ashley Eckstein, Sam Witwer, Matt Lanter, Dee Bradley Baker, Daniel Logan, and more!

Newman directed, and Jimmy “Mac” McInerney of the popular Forcecast podcast added over 100 sound effects and music cues. The tale definitely captures the spirit of Star Wars, and Collins’ performance as Han Solo will blow you away. He nails the voice and tone.

Though I wish I would have been able to see it performed live – which by the way, the recording is of the live event that they did without multiple takes or a full cast rehearsal – getting to listen to it is good enough. I would love to see more audio plays like this produced.

No one wants to listen to a baby cry, and most parents will try anything, and I mean anything, to get them to quiet down. These lucky parents don’t have to sing off key lullabies or resort to rocking their baby in their arms for hours like most of us. Instead, all they have to do is blast the Star Wars theme and he goes from freak-out to zen in about three seconds. Talk about growing your geek.
