Why this Should NOT be made into a Series

The interwebz are abuzz with Disney’s announcement that the ‘Star Wars’ is branching out into the world of spin-offs. Every character from Boba Fett to Yoda has been hinted at, and yesterday they made official that a Boba Fett and Han Solo would be getting their shot at it. If successful, there would be more spin-offs, and you know what that means! How about: 1. Jar-Jar Bink’s place 2. The Misadventures of Sheriff Calrissian 3. The Ewok Variety Show 4. Padme’s Palace 5. The New Adventures of R5-D4 6. CSI: Coruscant 7. The Mace Windu Mysteries 8. Jabba and Co. 9....

Episode 2: The Empire Struzan Disney

Yesterday was the big news day, when it was announced that J.J. Abrams will direct Star Wars Episode VII. Now the fans and bloggers and everyone in between is picking this news apart, trying to figure out how Abrams style will look in a galaxy far, far away. Except for more lights blinding the audience in each shot, and some shaky camera work, no one will come close to guessing anything, and it will be two to five years before the wait is over, and we find out if the episode x11 is a confusing plot on an island, or just...

Cello Wars Fights the Force Using Cellos

What do you get with two cellos, a wookie and Darth Vader? Cello Wars! It’s a battle of the musicians using one of the greatest instruments out there. Add in some cymbals, drums and even an accordian (I didn’t know he could play that)… A well-created piece of video, the Piano Guys have several videos covering popular songs. But none of them used light sabers. The crew consists of Paul Anderson, Tel Stewart, Shane Scott, Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, and Al Van Der Beek. Their vision is to inspire music. They are looking for founders right now.

THE Original Star Wars Lightsaber Simulator!!!

What can I say about this amazing site? Have you ever wanted to have a lightsaber duel with yourself? Select from several sabers, from Padawan Anakin to Darth Vader to Count Dukoo! Click, drag, click to ignite and you are now using the Jedi’s legendary weapon of choice! Not as clumsy as the Blaster simulator, but not quite as endearing as a Laser Whip to the arse! Definetly one of the webs most incredibly weird sites!

You will succomb to the Dark side of the… wait…. put down that paint can…. NO…. NO!!!!! Well this one is pretty awesome. I first saw it on Geekologie: The Vader Project is a re-imaging project of the famous iconic Star Wars figure. They basically take the shiny black helmet and paint weld and do a lot of other cool and unique things to it. Maybe the guys at Orange County Choppers can make a Vader Chopper?
