MTSBWY: Bohemian Rhapsody: Star Wars Edition

Posted by on Dec 6, 2013 in May the schwartz be with you | 0 comments

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...

Goodbye Moon — By Darth Vader

Posted by on Nov 24, 2013 in May the schwartz be with you | 0 comments

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...

15 Reasons Why Jedi Knights Are Better than Pirates and Ninjas

Posted by on Oct 7, 2013 in May the schwartz be with you | 0 comments

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.  Go on, bitch, try it. 5. Dress someone in a pirate or ninja suit and they look like they’re in costume.  Hand someone a lightsaber, and a cloak, and they look bad-ass. 6. Janitors prefer Jedi Knights because the...

Seven Songs Inspired By Star Wars You Should Check Out

Posted by on Sep 24, 2013 in May the schwartz be with you, music | 0 comments

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 plot synopsis as the basis for his song, written to the tune of American Pie: Richard Cheese: Star Wars Cantina For those who aren’t familiar with the name Richard Cheese, think of the swing version of Disturbed‘s The Sickness you heard...
