TumblingSaber Podcast – Episode 29



Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there who do such a great job day in, day out! We hope you had an awesome day and were spoiled rotten by the most important people in your life!

We’re back with another fun episode of the podcast where everything related to our beloved galaxy far, far away gets talked about, including:

  • A recap of the OVMF’s stunning performance of the music of The Force Awakens,
  • A 6-month retrospective on The Force Awakens – have your thoughts changed since the first couple times you saw it in theater? How will it hold up over time?
  • Star Wars video games coming out of E3. I thought I was done with video games, but they’re going to rope me back in, aren’t they? What about you?
  • Will Han’s death impact episode 8? Would there be a giant funeral for a scoundrel?
  • Why Snoke can’t be Darth Plagueis, or more specifically, why he shouldn’t be Plagueis,
  • Random thoughts about Luke and Rey’s initial conversation, the nature of Snoke and Kylo Ren’s evil organization, which space battle would you like to fly in, and in what ship, who would be your getaway pilot, what Gungans taste like, and wishing our co-pilot James all the luck in the world as he and his family welcome a new addition as you read this!
  • If you listen to the show, you’ll hear the promo from our friends over at Talk Star Wars. Be sure to check them out for another tremendous Star Wars podcast that I highly, highly recommend! You won’t regret it!
  • And of course, it wouldn’t be an episode of the TumblingSaber podcast if we didn’t touch on sports. Both the Cleveland Cavaliers and Dustin Johnson silenced their doubters and haters yesterday and we’ll give our brief thoughts about those events, too.

TumblingSaber Podcast #21 – Meet Jocelyn Leblanc of the OVMF!



Hello there! Nice to see you again! It’s Monday morning and that means it’s time for another episode of the podcast! In a week with very little Star Wars news, we’re happy to bring you an interview with Jocelyn Leblanc, conductor of the OVMF. You’ve heard about the contest we’re running, and now we’ve got the man in charge on the show to talk about the music behind the movies that we all love so well. If you want to see Jocelyn and his orchestra in action FOR FREE, performing the music from The Force Awakens, then leave us a review on iTunes and then send a copy of the review to kyle@tumblingsaber.com! Winner is announced on the May 30th episode of the show!

OVMF The Force Awakens contest

Cory and I also ramble about a bunch of other things, and what becomes very clear is how far behind Cory is as far as old news and old memes go. We’ve got to get him caught up! Wrapping things up, we close out the show with the age-old debate: tacos or pizza?

Music of The Force Awakens – LIVE!

Do you love the music of Star Wars as much as I do? To the point where it plays almost non-stop on your commute to work, or at home, or at work…to the point where your two-year old son and five-year old daughter both hear it so often that they can identify specific themes at so early an age? But I digress. The music of Star Wars is as much a part of the experience as lightsabers, X-wings and cinnamon bun hairdos. What John Williams has provided to Star Wars fans is nothing short of fundamental to Star Wars. Try to envision Darth Vader without the Imperial March? The Ewoks without their Parade? It just doesn’t compute!

OVMF The Music of The Force Awakens contest

We’re super excited to announce that we’re now running a contest to grab a pair of tickets to see the OVMF perform the music of The Force Awakens LIVE! For those living in and around Montreal, The OVMF (Orchestre à Vents de Musique de Films) is performing the music from The Force Awakens LIVE on June 12, 16, and 19 this coming June. The event is nearly sold out across the board (the June 12 and 19th shows are sold out, and the June 16th event soon will be), but we’ve got a pair of tickets to the June 19th show to give away to a lucky listener of the TumblingSaber podcast!  To enter for your chance to win, check out the TumblingSaber podcast on iTunes, and leave us a 5-star review. Then, send the text of that review to kyle@tumblingsaber.com. Simple as that! We will pull a winner at random on the May 30th episode of the show, just be sure that you can get to Montreal if you enter!

We’re also doubly excited to announce that we’ve got Jocelyn Leblanc, Conductor of the OVMF on the next episode of the TumblingSaber podcast! We’re going to get deep on the music of Star Wars, so be sure not to miss this episode!

The OVMF puts on an excellent show, and you do not want to miss the chance to see this music performed live and in person! Here’s one example of how awesome this show will be:
