From TV to SW

There is a rumor going around this week that Sam Esmail, the creator and write of Mr. Robot is in talks with Lucasfilm to write and or direct an up coming Star Wars stand alone film. (http://screenrant.com/star-wars-anthology-writer-mr-robot-sam-esmail/). Well, this got me to wondering... who else could make the jump from television to Star Wars.  Well, here are five people I would like to see make that leap!

My Non-Recap Recap of Star Wars Celebration

 I have been off-line for the past four days, which also happened to be the same for days at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando! I don't have time to recap everything that happened this weekend in only five minutes, but here are just a very few brief thoughts I want to share about all that went on at the greatest Star Wars fan fest of all time!   See ya in 2019!

Celebration Predictions Part Two

 On yesterday's episode, I shared with you my predictions for the news and surprises we would get out of Star Wars Celebration. However, after I record the episode, I went back and listen to it, and found  that my predictions were a little... mundane. A little too easy. My predictions were a bit predictable.

Well,  on today's episode I try to think bigger, think outside the box, and try to come up with some predictions that a bit less predictable!

PS -  hey, if you're at Star Wars celebration and listening episode, let me know! Send me a selfie!   And if you really like the episode, please, share it with another con goer who has yet to hear Less Than 12 Parsecs.   I'd greatly appreciate it! Thank you!

Bonus Episode #0005 - The Why Behind LT12P

Today's episode is nearly 10 minutes long, thus it's a bonus episode.  That's the LT12P way; any episode over 7 minutes is labeled a bonus episode!

Today I get more personal than I ever have before, and answer a question that multiple have asked me.  I'm not that great at "sharing", so please forgive me as I bumble through the story I have to tell.

Darth Taxus

Today, unexpected, Darth Taxus from "Starships, Sabers and Scoundrels" showed up on the show!

I had nothing planned for today, so I was going to just go to bed early, but then I got to chatting with D.T. (as he's known to his friends)(no, not really) and I decided to say "Hey, wanna do an episode?".  So, here's 5 quick mins with Taxus about what he's been up to lately in regards to his Star Wars fandom!

Fantasy Star Wars Encounters

I am titling today's episode "Fantasy Star Wars Encounters". No, it's not about some hook-up app for Star Wars cosplayers looking for love, but rather, it is an idea I stole from Dennis Keithly, from the great podcast "Starships, Sabers and Scoundrels". You'll have to give it a listen to learn more!

After you take six minutes to listen to me (yes, I'm a little long winded today), please be sure to check out the great work Dennis does. You can find all of his links below!

Gut Reaction: Lego Star Wars The Freemaker Adventures Season Two

The trailer for Season Two of the Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures was released today.  To say I'm excited is an understatement!  Here is my "Gut Reaction" to the trailer.  (In my excitement, I forgot to say "Gut Reaction" in the show, but trust me, this is a LT12P "Gut Reaction" episode, for those of you keeping track at home!)

The New Era of LT12P Begins!

That's it, I'm done. I hit 100 episodes and that's good enough for me. I'm hanging up the microphone and calling it quits.

Don't worry, Less Than 12 Parsecs will continue on without me. Starting today, my son Declan will be taking over the show.   I'm not really sure what he's going to do with it, but I trust it will be interesting.

So please enjoy this new era, this new generation, this is new... something?
