Star Wars Detours animated series clips

After being under strict wraps for a long time, the formerly known as "Untitled Star Wars animated tv series" - now known as Star Wars Detours - was recently revealed to the world through a trailer and series of promo clips (watch the 6 clip playlist below).  The notable thing about it is that Star Wars uber-geeks and Robot Chicken masterminds Seth Green and friends are involved.  So what you get is an animated version of the Robot Chicken Star Wars specials sort of.  It's hard to knock as those specials are legend-ary.  Definitely some of the funniest, most rewatched and referenced humour around Yesterday's Cheese.  And on that note, it seems fitting that this post, our 500th, is on the Star Wars humour tip. Not only is it our most frequent post tag, but like I said, the Star Wars Robot Chicken episodes are easily some of our favorite stuff ever. Anyways, we'll see where Detours goes  - tagline for the show is "the other side of the stars, between the wars". It might end up pretty cheesy, but as far as Star Wars humour goes, should be pretty hard to screw up.

David Fincher Knows Film Titles

Accomplished/famous film director David Fincher (you might remember from such movie moments as Fight Club, Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) tends to really put creative work into the opening titles of his films.  This video is a brief montage of a bunch of the cool things he's done for opening titles.  Kinda neat when you think of the filmography behind it.  It's from a big interview with him about filmmaking and title design on Art of the Title.

LOTR x Hercules

Random retro video find of the day... an old mashup of Lord of the Rings and the old The Mighty Hercules cartoon from...the 60s? You know the one, with the cool (H) ring and Newt.

Windows 95 Guide from your Friends Rachel and Chandler

Just going to leave this here. If you haven't seen this ridiculous but oh so 90s promotional vid, worth it for the "Friends" (but not Friends at all) "cyber" sitcom intro. Oh, also for things like "cyber" and well, Windows 95.  Matthew Perry and Jennifer Aniston couldn't resist Bill Gate$ apparently.  It's bizarre, like the bizarro British Friends in 30 Rock "Chums"

Wesley Snipes: This was meant to be. We're like Russ and Rebecca on Chums!.... ♪ I'll be here always ♪ ♪ While the rains fall on whales ♪ CHUMS.
