May the Fourth Be With You!

Hello folks! It’s almost that time of year again- the 4th of May. The day that we celebrate our love of Star Wars on National Star Wars Day. Some people will celebrate at home alone with a big tub of popcorn watching the films. Others will celebrate with good friends and good food. Some may have a costume party host a costume party. No matter how you choose to celebrate, one thing is certain: this is a day for Star Wars fun. Wookiepedia gives us some tips on how some fans celebrate this special day: Typical festivities consist of inviting fellow Star Wars-obsessed friends to stay over, and then watching the series in succession. Lots of snacks, bring lightsabers and Star Wars-themed toys. Lightsaber fights in the early morning hours optional.   Star Wars Day Attack Ad: Say No to May the 4th A special message that reveals the ugly truth about May…

MTSBWY: Bohemian Rhapsody: Star Wars Edition


Based on Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen and Star Wars created by George Lucas. The students and faculty of the Digital Video Program at the University of Advancing Technology in Tempe, Arizona released a great new Star Wars themed parody. They aren’t the best singers in the world, but they’ve put together a great video, filled with some pretty impressive cosplay. There is also some decent wordplay in this, though I’ve no idea why Satanic Spock is part of it. Not complaining about the Samurai Mandalorians, or random bikini women in masks. Remember to turn on the captions.

Goodbye Moon — By Darth Vader

Goodbye Moon -- By Darth Vader

A bedtime story, Star Wars style… Darth Vader puts baby Leia to bed with a little help from every Sith Lord’s favorite soothing nighty-night tale of conquest and destruction: “Goodbye Moon!” I stumbled upon this little funny the other day and my kids love it. It’s a spoof on the famous “Goodnight Moon” story that most American children know well. But no one has ever told the story as well as Vader does in this version. “Goodnight Moon is an American children’s book written by Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by Clement Hurd. It was first published in 1947, and is a highly acclaimed example of a bedtime story.” – Wikipedia (idea, text, and video by Andy Clinton) (most screen caps from (music by Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star) Check it out!

15 Reasons Why Jedi Knights Are Better than Pirates and Ninjas

There are too many pirates and ninjas roaming the Interwebs for my liking, so  it makes sense to examine specifically why Jedi Knights pwn both Ninjas and Pirates. 1. Ninjas and Pirates have to at least break a sweat to disarm each other.  A Jedi Knight just has to think it and you’re screwed. 2. Ninjas may use stealth, but Jedi Knights can use the Force to make you freakin’ forget they were even there.  In fact, with just a wave of a Jedi’s hand, you might end up finding yourself rocking back and forth outside a 7-11 while drooling profusely. 3. Seriously, can you name a ninja or pirate that is able to take out Sith Lord like Darth Maul, or a giant beast like the Rancor?  I didn’t think so… 4. A sword used by a Pirate or a Ninja can be broken.  Try and break a lightsaber. …

Seven Songs Inspired By Star Wars You Should Check Out

Star Wars has had a massive impact on pop culture around the world, inspiring fans to create their own works of art, fan films, fan fiction, and crafts.  But it is in music that we can also see the influence that George Lucas and Star Wars has had over the years.  Take a look at these 8 tunes inspired by the Star Wars saga: Weird Al Yankovic: The Saga Begins Amusing to many, iconic to geeks, and known to many as a Star Wars nerd at heart, The Saga Begins is not Weird Al’s first tribute to the films.  He’s done a few songs, but what makes this one stand out is it came out just before The Phantom Menace – which proved one thing: just like most of us hardcore fans, Al was scouring the web for spoilers about the prequels.  He did it so well; he used the…

Star Wars vs Game of Thrones- Meme Throwdown


Star Wars and Game of Thrones face off in this epic series of memes that Mashable has combined for us. Mashable says: Westeros and the Death Star may seem light years apart in the sci-fi universe, but Game of Thrones and Star Wars actually share a lot of scenarios. And thanks to this awesome subreddit, we can prove it. Ok, so we knew Redditors had to be behind this all along! So what the heck do these two things even have in common? Well Mashable lays out a few examples of the symmetry: Sure, outer space doesn’t have any dragons and the Seven Kingdoms won’t be fighting off Darth Vader and his Stormtrooper army anytime soon. But long before Cersei Lannister macked it with her brother, Princess Leia made familial flirting look totally normal. And Lord Walder Frey probably learned a few things about betrayal from Lando Calrissian himself. If you’re a fan of Star…

MTSBWY: Billy Dee and Patton Oswalt do ‘Star Wars’ karaoke

I’ve seen some ludicrously funny things in my day, but this is really a piece of work. This is just one of those things you have to experience to believe. I guess the video is an ad for Samsung’s Galaxy S4, and it features Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) hitting up Karaoke Night at the Cantina on Tatooine. Lando performs a embarrassingly bad rendition of Jason Schwartzman‘s song, “West Coast.” The video also features appearances by Schwartzman, Patton Oswalt, Carrie Keagan, Chris Hardwick, and Mike Phirman. Check the weirdness out.
