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.

 

 

 

Annnnnnnd…LucasArts is gone

Disney Shuts Down LucasArts, Cancels Star Wars 1313 And Star Wars: First Assault

I found out about this last night through my BF (he normally is coming to ME for Star Wars updates as he’s more of a Trekkie, but as he’s studying to become a video game designer he always beats me to anything video-game related). I’m pretty surprised and not sure I’m happy with this turn of events. While I haven’t played any LucasArts games in a while (I don’t play a lot of Star Wars games actually…) I have played and enjoyed their games in the past. I don’t really see why Disney chose to close LucasArts down – though I suppose it was being phased out in recent years anyway with other publishers working on the Star Wars games. Still, firing 150 people and shutting the whole company down? Couldn’t they have assimilated LucasArts into some other company?

I don’t know much about the technical goings on of running the company or making the games so I can’t say much, just that I’m going to miss that logo.

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.

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

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!

Happy New Year and OMG LOOK WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS!!

R2-D2 For Girls

Like usual, the links in the pictures will take you to the sources.  Found this stuff while looking up images of R2-D2 – I’m designing a R2 themed crochet project (though it probably won’t see the light of day for months…)
