As I delve deeper back into the sublime grip of Star Wars fandom (I had escaped for a while), I've decided that I'd like to add a podcast or two to my podcast listening habits. I've seen "Star Wars Minute" referenced in previous answers, but I was curious if there were any other Star Wars podcasts of top quality to listen to which MeFites would recommend?
What would happen if Darth Vader parked his Death Star in our neighborhood? [more inside]
What is the appearance of Dathomiri blood? Color, viscosity, anything like that. [more inside]
There is a hilarious parody of the new Star Wars trailer done in the style of Wes Anderson. Does anyone know what music is being used? All I can tell is that the singing is in French. [more inside]
My kids rewatched A New Hope this week, and I ended up lost on Wookieepedia trying to find a broadly-definitive (by fans, not so much Lucas) take on droids like C3PO and R2D2. I understand slavery of sentients was eventually outlawed by the New Republic, but are droids emancipated? Can a droid be a Jedi (I saw the Skippy story)? Are droids AI or something else? How is Jar Jar Binks considered fully sentient in law, but not R2D2? Can a droid be murdered? What about copying a droid - is that like cloning a sentient being? Droids 101, please
I have this amazing Star Wars ships silicone moulded cake pan. I have no idea what kind of cake works best with it. What cake recipes work best with fancy moulds? Help me eat the Death Star!
Ok, I'm blowing my question on this because I can't find it and I need to watch it right now. There's a YouTube video of courier typewriter text and voice-over which talks about "A fucked up situation" that the author is recalling. If the title doesn't indicate enough of the video to you, spoilers below the fold to help you find it... because I can't find it. [more inside]
I heard a snippet of a song this morning on the radio. It was an awesome Star Wars theme mix and included a snippet of the Cantina Band song and later, R2D2 noises. I must have! [more inside]
What parts of the Star Wars Expanded Universe are worth exploring? [more inside]
I'm trying to identify what assets were acquired in Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm. Since Disney is a publicly traded company, would this information be located in any type of detailed document? One area I'm particularly wondering about is movie props from the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films - does Disney own them or did Lucas keep them?
I remember reading a passage in a Star Wars novel in which R2-D2 and C-3PO have a conversation about death - both their own deaths, and what it is like to be a mechanical thing who has flesh and blood friends who will eventually die. I am pretty sure it was somewhere in the New Jedi Order, because it was definitely in the context of "OMG everyone is dying and what will happen to us" (probably after Chewbacca's death?), but also it could've been somewhere else. Which book was it in?! Google is failing me.
At 37 I am discovering my inner sci-fi and TV series/movie fandom. And my nine year old is already there. I am thinking we would probably enjoy comic-cons and other -cons, but have no idea how to research this. [more inside]
I read the first six Young Jedi Academy books, but only a few of the adult expanded universe novels... and the ones I read I don't remember. What should I read before the new movie comes out in 2015? [more inside]
Are there any iPhone 4 cases that feature Han Solo frozen in carbonite that are sculpted/3d, and not printed? The only one I've managed to find is this, which seems a little dicey.
Which Star Wars novel features a scene where (I believe) Han Solo is using a telescope to look at a planet in another system, and can resolve it well enough to actually see what people on that planet are doing X years ago, where X is the number of light years that planet is away from the one he's on?
Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Blade Runner. Harrison Ford is in all three movies, and he has a recognizable/signature weapon or tool in each one. Are there any other similarities between the three? [more inside]
What's the best way to watch the non-special versions of the original Star Wars movies? Is it worth getting the laserdiscs? [more inside]
There are approximately one billion models of light saber toys out there. I'm looking at reviews, but it occurs to me maybe someone here has a great rec for a sturdy, non-lame light saber toy. [more inside]
What are your favorite fictional holidays? This winter, my partner and I want to celebrate as many Christmas-like made-up holidays as possible. Our list includes Hogswatch (Discworld), Winter Veil (World of Warcraft), Crimbo (from Kingdom of Loathing), Festivus (which is increasingly less fictional), Life Day (from the Star Wars Christmas Special), and the Ice Festival (from Maria V. Snyder's fantasy books). Are there any more that we can add to our calendar?
I'm looking for images, most likely illustrations but photos might do, that depict the most absurd, over-the-top awesomeness. Imagine someone sat down and said "I'm going to draw the silliest, most awesome thing ever." [more inside]
I'm crafting my first real substantial diorama (read: not made out of construction paper and a shoe box) and I need some construction assistance. Bonus! It's the ice planet of Hoth! [more inside]

What are the spoofs on the Star Wars Blu-rays? [more inside]
I'm aware that re-releases of old films (eg, from the 70s, Star Wars I'm looking at you) are common as and when new formats become available, but what is the logic in this other than commercial? [more inside]
[StarWarsFilter] For my friends' wedding, I am trying to get them a copy of the unremastered, original Star Wars Trilogy (Hope/Empire/Jedi.) Is there somewhere I can get it that isn't Amazon? [more inside]
Can you recommend any good/amusing/simple fan-made online games based on genre franchises such as Star Wars, Star Trek, Lost, '80s Transformers/GI Joe, etc? [more inside]

Star Wars:Clone wars cartoon series - Which episodes are appropriate for a 5 year old Star Wars enthusiast? [more inside]
Star Wars Nerdery: Once, an indeterminate time ago, I was reading something about the making of the original Star Wars models. They used a term (named for one of the model makers?) for a certain kind of detailing. More specifically, it was used to describe the horizontal trench running along the length of a Star Destroyer. What is this term?
Is this a good plan for selling on Craigslist? [more inside]

Bachelor party in Edmonton, help! [more inside]
For how long was Han Solo frozen in carbonite?
Star Wars Episodes I, II and III disappoint me. For me, the they're in love with scenery and expense and try to make up for it with plodding exposition. They need editing. I think I would enjoy something like The Phantom Edit. But how do I get ahold of it? Is it the best edit? Are there other fan edits of I, II and III that are worth seeking out? And how do I get and watch them?
I am working on getting rid of a lot of old possessions (baseball cards, electronics, clothes, etc.) that I've accumulated since childhood. I am not certain of the best way to dispose of some of these things. What's the best way to make sure most of it doesn't just end up in a landfill and/or might also bring me some profit? [more inside]

My wife bought me the Uncle Milton Star Wars Force Trainer. It's suposed to use brain waves to control a sphere. My rational self is convinced there is a scam on this. Does this thing work like they say it does or am I right? [more inside]
I watched a film called "Return Of The Jedi" recently. Perhaps some of you have seen it. In the first act, a motley band of heroes executes an ingenious plan to rescue a comrade from an obese crime lord. Wait, what exactly was their ingenious plan? [more inside]
My son wants to be the Death Star for Halloween. Awesome. I can do this. But I’m stuck as to how to make a sphere. Help! [more inside]
