The Round Up 080 – The Empire Strikes Back and Party Ben

The Round Up

Andy Sorcini aka Mr. Baby Man from The Drill Down and Greg Davies aka cGt2099 from Social Blend join forces for The Round Up – a short mini podcast focusing on some entertainment news, with a preview of what’s coming up in Social Blend and The Drill Down.

Episode 80 of The Round Up finds Andy and Greg remembering 1980 as they celebrate Universal Day of the Jedi (which is on May 25) and mark the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. We have a flashback and take a look at the original theatrical trailer for Episode V, and take a look at an older, but relevant, April Fool’s Joke played by the LucasOnline team back in 2001. We also take a listen to a mashup by PartyBen called Galvanize The Empire, which merges John Williams’ Imperial March and The Chemical Brothers’ Galvanize; and discuss all things Star Wars and George Lucas before jumping into our previews of Social Blend and The Drill Down.
