Episode 93 – I Want My MTV Star Wars

Join Jason & Gabe as they go back to the wild world of Star Wars prequel hype and the bizarre marriage of Star Wars and MTV!  They’re talking everything from Duel of The Fates being a hot TRL chart topper to the huge Skywalker Ranch  mid 2000s star studded parties for AOTC & ROTS!  Most important of all, they go over the infamous Star Wars interviews with rapper and No Limit Records founder, Master P. Hear him ask Hayden about a lizard, his relationship with Natalie and the mind blowing George “John”  Lucas / Master P conversation.   In a world of awkward Lucas moments, this could be the all time champion.

As if that wasn’t enough, there’s Last Jedi talk, Han Solo movie chatter and excitement over the new series of Forces of Destiny shorts!!

So get on your lizard, believe in Star Wars and celebrate the love with BLAST POINTS!!

 

Episode 90 – Back to School with Star Wars Adventures in Colors and Shapes!

It’s the back to school special as Jason and Gabe join 3-PO, R2, Zilnor and a very grumpy Han Solo and learn all about colors and shapes with the weird and mostly forgotten 1984 Read Along Book, Star Wars Adventures in Colors and Shapes!  Han needs Fulstar plates to make the Falcon go on a supply run and 3-PO has the most frustrating day ever and he tries to help Han.  When does this book take place in the timeline?  Is it in Pablo’s book collection?  It’s possibly the greatest Star Wars adventure ever told and Blast Points is here to help you through it.  And it has special appearances from GREEDO! and a HOOJIB!?!

Plus there is Episode 9 director talk, who WE think will be behind the camera on that one, Rebels season 4 trailer stuff, inappropriate Chewbacca & so much more! ‬Look for it tomorrow!

Episode 78 – Star Wars on QVC!

Take a trip back to 1992 as Jason & Gabe take a look at the fascinating world of Star Wars QVC specials! In the early 1990s when Star Wars stuff was as rare as a carded Yak Face, the closest you could get to a Celebration like fan experience was sometimes tuning into Star Wars night on the home shopping channel QVC!

In between selling Star Wars 15th anniversary sweatshirts and Star Wars film reel suspenders, Mark talks about the prequels, calls from Star Wars fans and he gets a call from a guy named Chip he went to high school with AND says if he’d ever be interested in being in a NEW Star Wars movie!!!
