Roundup: Video-centric

I didn't feel liking creating a post today, until I'd seen this. Originally, I wasn't very intrigued by the addition of Darth Maul's brother in The Clone Wars. The whole concept just seemed to be an example of how the team behind The Clone Wars was running out of story lines. In their defense, they're not, the whole thing just felt very Star Trekish. Technically speaking there's only so many new stories that can be created. [1] [2]

You may or may not have heard of Kinect, the new supplemental gaming system to the Xbox 360. For those of you who own one, I envy you all the more; Star Wars will be making it's way to the Kinect system next year.

What is Kinect you ask? To sum it up, it's basically a camera that tracks your movements without the assistance of anything that you hold or wear, and broadcasts the image of you and your movements onto the game that you're playing.

I think. Honestly, the technology is new to me too...

Lastly, and this is a must-watch, I've posted a new video in the upper right hand corner of my blog, (as if you hadn't seen that like a smack in the face when the page first loaded). The video features Brian Regan, a comedian I've discovered recently. Is it just me, or is he one of the funniest stand up comedians you've ever seen? And he's clean. I usually don't fixate on that, (I'll admit, Dane Cook can be funny. At times...) but it's a breath of fresh air to watch someone be funny, without being overly crude or obscene. Just watch, I promise you won't regret it!

And for additional viewing pleasure, check out these other Brian Regan videos; UPS, Serving Sizes, Stupid in School, Flying.


  1. I always like a good clean comedian, so thanks for sharing. Unfortunately I just spent the last hour and a half watching video after video. :p

    Oh, and a brother for Darth Maul seems like going too far.

  2. I've done the same as Zachary and spent ages watching the videos and I'm supposed to be working! Found you via the Hump Day Hop and was intrigued by the Kinect reference. It only hit our shops yesterday and there was a queue all around the block to buy son is desperate for one so looks like I'll have to go out and mug someone who has managed to purchase one. ;)

  3. Can you imagine Battlefront on the Kinect? Oh, glory. :D

    I agree with how the Clone Wars folks are running out of story. So far, pretty much all the episodes are continuations and prequels to the last seasons' episodes. There's one tag they haven't used yet-cloning the Zillo Beast.

    I'm afraid they'll ruin the Nightsisters though.

  4. @Zachary-I know what you mean! I spent forever watching him and then just as much time if not more showing it to all my family and friends.

    @Amaranthine-Battlefront on the Kinect? OH MY GOODNESS... That would be awesome!

    And you're right about both the Zillo Beast and the Nightsisters. If memory serves, I read somewhere that they're retconning Ventress as a Dathomirian! I won't/can't believe it!!!

  5. I thought Savage was a female, hahaha.
