William Shakespeare’s Star Wars Saga


I’m a sucker for pretty much anything Star Wars and I have a fondness for William Shakespeare. However, never in my wildest dreams did I think someone would combine the two! Ian Doesher has and the result is pretty humorous. I’m not sure if these will last past an initial read-through, but I’m happy they exist and have added them to this years Christmas List.

May the Fourth Be With You!

Let’s all remember, and light a candle for the Original Trilogy. In our minds it remains unaltered by shitty CGI, Han shoots first, and we can sing with the Ewoks.

Yub Nub and May the Force Be With You All.

Star Wars Blu Ray Announcement Greeted With “Meh.” and Shrugs

Star Wars if finally coming to Blu Ray.  That announcement was met with a collective nerd shrug as there was no announcement regarding the un-enhanced Original Trilogy appearing on the Blu Ray set.  Do we really want to see bad CGI “enhancements” continuing to plague the Star Wars Trilogy? And does anyone care to see the Prequels and all their wooden acting and bad CGI in High Def? George Lucas thinks so!

Kid Attempts to Behead Brother with Dual Lightsabers!


This made me laugh.  Figured I should share it.  This isn’t far off from me and my brother when we used to play “Star Wars” back in the day.

Here’s the original link to the pic.  Looks like someone had fun with Photoshop.

Death Star Vs. Enterprise

Unfortunately, The Enterprise is no match for the Death Star.  The video is hosted at  Current and the description states that The Enterprise had to be stopped because they were whale poaching in the waters surrounding San Francisco.

Star Wars Legos: Prequels vs Original


In honor of Unofficial Star Wars Day, I think it’s relevant to get on a little Prequels Vs. Original Trilogy topic.  The topic at hand are Star Wars Legos.  I love legos, today Gizmodo released a huge gallery of the history of Star Wars Legos since they started being created in 1999.  These pictures came from a 10 year annivesary poster that is no longer available, but a book is on the way!

See the great article, along with some fun other posts at Gizmodo.  Below I present the gallery sorted by Original Trilogy characters and Prequel/Clone Wars characters.  I think the Original Trilogy Characters are the most inspired, but that’s just me! What do you think?

geekTastic! Star Wars as Fine Art by Christian Waggoner

Atlanta artist Christian Waggoner has created some of the most interesting (and worthy of purchasing) Star Wars Fine Art I’ve ever seen.  These 3 pieces show classic Star Wars scenes as reflected by other characters in the scene.  They all are very interesting perspectives, and the detail is quite striking.

If you want to purchase a print, you have 3 options:

  • Giclee Print (Paper): starting at $125
  • Giclee Print (Sm Canvas): starting at $325
  • Giclee Print (Lg Canvas): starting at $1,125.00

You can see these 3 pieces of art at Acme Archives Direct, as well as other quality art pieces from many other artists.  These 3 however, are a significant stand out among the Star Wars art featured.  If I had the cash, I’d totally be buying the Large Canvas prints for my future mini-theater lounge (when I strike it rich, of course!).
