Podcasters Spotlight: Mike Pilot from Full of Sith

While I was away this month, friend  of the show Ryan Dassing stepped in to record interviews with some of the “Titans of Star Wars Podcasting”.  I apologize to you the listener, and to Ryan, that it has taken me so long to get these episodes posted. I suck, I know, you don’t need to remind me. 😖

Anyway, thanks for your patience. Please stay tuned!

My Sequel Trilogy

Ive been thinking about Episode IX quite a bit this week. And while looking ahead, I’ve also been looking behind, and contemplating the sequel trilogy as a whole.  And I was wondering  how I would have made the sequel trilogy.  Well, here’s what I came up with!

And ps, the episode is scripted! So, it’s not as bad as some of my more recent shows. So there’s that! 😛

Sunday Confessional: What I’ve Been Up To

I had nothing planned for today, so I just turned on the microphone and started talking. What came out of my mouth is just some stuff I’ve been thinking about this week.  Nothing exciting, nothing new really, but none the less, here ya go. This episode is what some reviewers might call “skippable”.  You’ve been warned! 😉

EDIT: I tried to post this last night, on Sunday, but I faced technical difficulties that I could not over come until today, thus the delay.

LT12P Conversations #0005

I recently sat down with The Brothers Dassing; friends, buddies, patrons of the show.  We had a fun conversation about their family's Star Wars traditions, what it was like growing up as Star Wars fans in the Dassing household, the next generation of Dassing Star Wars fanboys, and a lot of other fun stuff.

Also, in this episode, Ryan Dassing is knighted as a Knight of the Commonwealth, the not-so secret society of Star Wars Commonwealth super fans!  Congratulations Sir Ryan!

This is an episode of LT12P Conversations, so it is far from our normal 5 to 7 minute episode.  Today's show is over 30 minutes long, so get comfortable and enjoy!

If you want to become a Less Than 12 Parsecs like Ryan and Phil Dassing, then please check out our Patreson page...

The Star Wars Guy

After some time away on medical leave, I am back to share with you a story from my life about being “The Star Wars Guy”.  If you are known to be the Star Wars aficionado where you work, then you’ll probably relate!

The news of the day is that The Clone Wars will be returning!  And today I use this news as an excuse to share with you one of my own Clone Wars memories.  Have a listen and then tell me if I am a monster or just a fool.  Thanks!

I Cant Come Up With A Good Title Today

Toxic Star Wars fans, the vocal minority, has been in the news a lot lately, and for the most part, I've ignored this and stayed out of it.  But today, today it really bothered me.  So, I had to share these few words.  It's nothing deep, my thoughts wont solve any problems, but I just had to get them out, to maybe make myself feel a little better.  Thanks for listening.  Sorry to be so down.  I promise to be back to normal next time!

A Top Five By Dave Marrs

After I got back from vacation, I received an email from Dave Marrs, former host of the Hot Wampa podcast.  He sent me an idea for a top five episode.  I love when people send me show topics, but Dave had mapped out the whole thing.  He had done all the hard work!

I would have felt guilty for using his idea in such detail.  So, I turned the tables on Dave and said "Hey, why don't you make this episode of LT12P?"  And ya know what, he did!

So today, here you go, Dave Marrs' Top Five Star Wars Easter Eggs.  Enjoy!

Friday, July 6, 2018

Kerri Russell & Other Television Actors

Today's episode is kinda all over the place... I talk about Patreon, I talk about rumor vs news, I talk about Kerri Russell and then I end it all on a brand new Top Five list on a topic that, honestly, I think I've done on the show before, BUT, right now, I'm too lazy to double check.  Oh well, whatever, never mind.  Instead, listen, enjoy and let me know what you think.  Thanks!

Top Five Week: The Final Day

I'm drawing Top Five Week to an end a little early, due to laziness, busyness and vacation time.  But I make up for my lack of Top Five lists by giving you FIVE Top Five lists!  Seriously!

Also, I will be out camping with the family next week, and without the internet.  I have set up three episodes to drop in my absence, hosted by members of the Star Wars Commonwealth Network, so please look for those.  I wont be around on social media to plug the shows, so make sure to subscribe to the LT12P feed in your favorite pod catcher app!  See ya next week (if I don't get eaten by a bear, that is!)

The George Lucas Sequel Trilogy (part 2)

Today's episode is a follow up to the last episode of LT12P.  More of the discussion George Lucas had with James Cameron, where George spoke about what he would have done with a sequel trilogy, has been released.  And like in the last episode, I share my thoughts about it, line by line.  But, to be honest, all I can some up with is easily summed up as "whaaaaaaaaaat?".

Here is the article from IO9 I mentioned...

The George Lucas Sequel Trilogy

Bonus Episode #0013 - Talking with JD

Sorry, but this is yet another long episode.  And I didn't meant for it to be one!  I was chatting with JD from the Nerf Herder Council, and well, before you know it, an hour had passed!  It started as a Podcasters Spotlight episode, turned into a LT12P Conversations episode, became a Solo review, a Celebration planning session, and it kept going from there!  None the less, I hope you will give it a listen.  Stick around to the end... I promise you there is some good stuff at the end.

I also promise that I will get back to the short shows tomorrow, and the days following.  Thank you for your patience!

PS - We recorded this episode on May 28th.

Bonus Episode #0012 - Full Length SOLO Review

If you haven't grown tired of online nerds yammering on and on about Solo yet, then we have the show for you!  It's an hour long discussion and review, full of spoilers, insights and fun!  Have a listen as I am joined by my old pal from The Expanded Fandomverse, Jason Collier, AND, show Patron and all around cool guy, Ryan Dassing.  We all come to the table with different takes and opinions, and that leads to a great conversation.

Warning!  This episode is an hour long.  Not your normal episode of LT12P, by a long shot!  So, pace yourself, take your time, and enjoy!

Podcasters Spotlight: David Frishkorn from The Cocky Cockpit

Today's episode is with a great guy and a great friend of the show, Mr. David Frishkorn.  David is from one of my favorite podcasts, The Cocky Cockpit.

We were going to sit down and record one of my normal "Podcaster Spotlight", but with SOLO so fresh in our fan boy minds, we started chatting about that, and well, we went a little long.  Technically, this SHOULD be a LT12P Bonus Episode, but I'm not calling it that.  Why?  Because I said so, that's why!  :-p

And speaking of LT12P rules... David WILL be back tomorrow, to sit through my 10 Stoopid Questions, so please, check back for that soon!
