A thought to my friends




Lately, I´ve been thinking about a very nice thing. As I run this blog, just for pure joy and for being a true fan of the Star Wars universe, every week I receive some new stuff about Star Wars from my friends. The line of thought is simple, if I wanted to I didn´t need to search for anything else about the saga, because my friends send me lots of info regularly.
So, this post is for them, for always sharing with me this passion I have, keeping it going and making me happy. Love to all of you guys :)

::::::::

Ultimamente tenho matutado em algo bastante porreiro. Enquanto mantenho este blogue, apenas por puro divertimento e por ser um verdadeiro fã do universo Star Wars, recebo todas as semanas dos meus amigos informação nova, relativa a Star Wars. A minha linha de raciocínio é simples, hoje, se quisesse, já não precisava de procurar mais nada sobre a saga, porque os meus amigos o fazem por mim. Enviam-me montes de coisas com regularidade. Por isso, este post é para eles, por partilharem sempre comigo esta paixão que tenho, mantendo-a e deixando-me feliz. Um bem haja para todos vocês :)

Empire Hotline



"Enter Craig Miller, Lucasfilm's first director of fan relations, who recently uncovered his cassette copy of the phone messages (likely the only copy in existence) and generously shared them with us. To our surprise, the recording revealed five -- not four -- voice performances, including a previously unknown Princess Leia message recorded by Carrie Fisher!"

Keep on reading here. You can also hear the 5 samples from C3PO, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker and of course, Darth Vader. Enjoy!

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 (trailer)

No need for words... :)




Mauro Bex : maurobindo

What if?


What if The Empire Strikes Back has had a different casting? Like, Kurt Russell was Han Solo, Cindy Williams played Princess Leia and Robby Benson was the hero Luke Skywalker? They all screen tested and nearly got parts in the movie. The great Toshiro Mifune was considered as Obi-Wan. It could've been a very, very different Star Wars...

::::::::

E se O Império Contra-Ataca tivesse tido um casting diferente? Tipo, se Kurt Russell fosse o Han Solo, a Cindy Williams fizesse de Princesa Leia e o Robby Benson tivesse o papel do herói Luke Skywalker? Todos eles fizeram testes e quase conseguiram papéis para o filme. O grande Toshiro Mifune foi uma hipótese para representar o papel de Obi-Wan. Podia ter sido um Star Wars muito, muito diferente...

Adidas Originals World Cup Party

Once again, Adidas has made an excelent job.
"The new cut seamlessly combines the original footage with new shots of our favorite electro-house droids, Snoop Dogg, Noel Gallagher, Ciara, David Beckham, Ian Brown and more. As far as we can tell, Daft Punk did not remix the original cantina music, though."

Enjoy!

Dawn of Maul



Like Darth Maul once came to this world (or another), another red thing was born 29 years ago.
I just hope I can keep myself red everyday, everytime :)

Tal como Darth Maul veio um dia a este mundo (ou a outro), outra coisinha vermelha nascia há 29 anos atrás.
Só espero que me mantenha vermelho todos os dias, a toda a hora :)

Vader´s true voice




Well, I never heard the voice of David Prowse as Darth Vader, although I knew since long that he was the "true" Vader, not James Earl Jones. It was a pleasant suprise.
Thanks Saki ;)

Bem, nunca tinha ouvido a voz de David Prowse como Darth Vader, apesar de saber há muito que ele era o "verdadeiro" Vader e não o James Earl Jones. Foi uma surpresa agradável.

Obama "pops up"


Looks like President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, was caught buying a Star Wars pop-up book. Was it for him, or his daughters?
I wonder...

Parece que o Presidente dos Estados Unidos, Barack Obama, foi apanhado a comprar um livro pop-up Star Wars. Será que era para ele, ou para as filhas?

Weather forecast


If you need to know how´s the weather outside, just try Tom Scott´s page.
This guy created a Star Wars weather forecast according to the planets of the saga. If it´s freezing, it´s as cold as Hoth! If it´s nice, probably you´re at Naboo. If it´s hot, Tattoine is your place.
They say that in Lisbon: "Está que nem Naboo lá fora. Temperado, seco e agradável."
Have fun :)

::::::::

Se precisarem de saber como está o tempo lá fora, experimentem a página criada por Tom Scott.
Este tipo criou um boletim meteorológico Star Wars de acordo com os planetas da saga. Se está frescote, está gelado como em Hoth! Se está agradável, provavelmente estão em Naboo. Se estiver calor, a vossa localização deve ser Tatooine.
Eles dizem que em Lisboa: "Está que nem Naboo lá fora. Temperado, seco e agradável."
Divirtam-se :)

Oh yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!



Well, I could say I´m pretty happy :)
I feel that I´m ready to fly an X-Wing. At least, I´ve got the shoes. Now I need the rest.
The Adidas collection conceived for the Star Wars saga it´s awesome. In Portugal, several stores have the tennis shoes available, as well as jackets and t-shirts. Some official Adidas stores have the collection, like many sneakers stores in Lisbon. For you to know, there is Prof (where I purchased mine), Na Maior, Waves & Woods, Big Punch and probably some others. But these ones, I know they have it. For the interested ones, you better rush, cause I´ve got lucky. The stock is flowing good...

::::::::

Bem, estou feliz da vida :)
Já estou preparado para pilotar um X-Wing. Pelos menos, o calçado já tenho. Agora falta o resto.
A colecção que a Adidas concebeu para a saga Star Wars está soberba. Em Portugal, várias lojas têm disponíveis vários ténis, casacos e t-shirts. Algumas das lojas oficiais da Adidas têm a colecção, bem como outras lojas que vendem ténis em Lisboa. A saber, Prof (onde comprei os meus), Na Maior, Waves & Woods, Big Punch e provavelmente outras. Mas estas sei que têm. Para os interessados, apressem-se, eu tive sorte. O stock já começou a escoar e bem...
