Happy May the 4th!

Happy Star Wars Day everyone!! While I’m not doing much to celebrate this year, I thought I’d share some ways to Star-Wars-ify your day.  Here’s some great stuff:

Celebration ideas, and more celebration ideas, straight from the official Star Wars Website.  Check out that severed wampa arm cake!

Speaking of the official Star Wars site, check out all the cool fun stuff they have – free online games, printables, recipes and more to add a little Star Wars to your day.

And before you do anything else, you need to make sure to send some Star Wars e-cards to all your friends to let them know you remember them on this momentous day.

And of course, Instructables.com has hundreds of recipes, crafts, costume ideas and more Star Wars themed how-tos sure to help you plan a perfect party or project.

Download a FREE episode of the animated show Star Wars: Clone Wars! Episode 16 of season 5 is free for download.

If you’re looking for some new reading material, Amazon is having a special on a lot of kindle editions of Star Wars books, many being marked down to $1.99 – including the The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force and The Thrawn Trilogy: Heir to the Empire, book 1 (this is the first real Star Wars novel series ever written, it’s very good and a classic!).

And when all else fails, just pop in A New Hope, grab a glass of blue milk and enjoy what the day is really all about.

Happy Star Wars Day everyone!

Random Star Wars fact…

Remember this guy from the original Star Wars movies?

Denis Lawson as Wedge Antilles in Return of the Jedi

Guess who his nephew is?

Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan-Kenobi

Mind = Blown.

Eventually I’ll post about something other than Star Wars I promise.

 

 

 

Every Star War’s fan’s thoughts on Disney owning Star Wars

I nearly choked on my drink from laughing.  This is gold.

Also, turning the Epcot ‘ball’ (which is actually called Spaceship Earth, FYI) into the Death Star is an epic idea.

Huge collection of Disney Clipart (including 90s TV favorites!!)

While searching around for graphics for a current project I found DisneyClips.com.  It’s stuffed to the brim of free-for-non-commercial-use Disney clipart, not only of Disney princesses and Mickey and the gang, but also of pretty much EVERY Disney movie ever made.  And the 90s TV shows, people! Stuff like:

Tailspin is probably one of the most looked-over old Disney shows, but it was pretty clever to turn the Jungle Book characters into their own show!

Sad that a lot of kids today have no idea who Uncle Scrooge is.

Anyone else remember the Darkwing Duck Stage show that was in the Magic Kingdom in the mid 90s??

This was a great show…looking back I realize how dark and serious it was, it wasn’t really a normal kids show but boy, it was good.

Chip is still one of my favorite cool guys!

 

 

Another reason why Wreck It Ralph is one of my favorite movies of all time

Apparently, the racer Minty Zaki is named for Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki

Also, what kind of name is Flugpucker??

So apparently Ford, Hamill and Fisher are all coming back for Star Wars VII

http://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-talk/star-wars-stars-reuniting-sequel-lucas-lets-slip-172815308.html

That movie is going to have the biggest opening week EVER.

Personally, I’m excited that they are all coming back to reprise their roles.  At the same time, I’m hesitant to see aged versions of their characters, especially as it could all go wrong, you know what I mean? It has to be handled just right or else.

Here’s hoping it will be as epic as it’s starting to sound!

Happy Valentines Day!

Merry Geeky Christmas!

20121223-121634.jpg

Annnnnnd that’s my geeky Christmas contribution :) Just a Christmas tree ball I painted up a bit to make R2D2. Didn’t come out great though as I didn’t use the right type of paint.

That’s it for me until after Christmas. May you all have a nice holiday :)
