Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager web series (Attention Must Be Paid)

I haven’t done one of these Attention Must Be Paid posts in a zillion years and for whatever reason, I suddenly had the desire to tackle a web series that isn’t in production anymore and hasn’t been for several years. So, without further ado, I give you Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager!

Star Wars Lightsaber Pen

Dr. Girlfriend is a lady that knows what I like – in this case, it’s a freaking Star Wars Lightsaber Pen that lights up both at the touch of a button and when you write with it! What more could you ask for? (A full sized working lightsaber is not a reasonable request, but I hear ya.) Well, the pen has decent detailing, too. Without checking a Star Wars encyclopedia (trust me, such things exist), this appears to be modeled after Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber as seen in Return of the Jedi, except it doesn’t have that giant cumbersome rectangular activation switch that Luke’s has. Honestly, how are you supposed to protect the galaxy from evil with that freaking thing in your way? Anyway, you gotta love that attention to detail! I’m still getting used to it, but so far, I’m having a great time playing around.

Playing with the StarWars.com Soundboard

StarWars.com has set up an official Soundboard, which is a great idea. People love Star Wars, people love soundboards, so kaboom – it’s like peanut butter and jelly… or a ration bar and some blue milk, I guess. Anyway, let’s play!

Star Wars Rebels LOOKS Disney-riffic, FEELS like Clone Wars

Now that Star Wars: The Clone Wars is over on Cartoon Network, we’re getting Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD. The trailer isn’t giving us much, but Disney/Star Wars has dropped a bunch of "meet the characters" styled shorts, and they’re much more revealing. Read the rest of this entry

Unnecessarily Awesome: Star Wars Tow Hitch

We don’t have the need for a tow hitch, but if I was towing something, I would certainly have to rock a Darth Vader tow hitch. If I was towing something super heavy, I’d have to tell the tow hitch, "Impressive – most impressive." As far as I can tell, there’s no way to make them light up… which would probably be distracting to other drivers and is a completely unnecessary feature as well as totally useless, but would still be cool. Oh well… I don’t need this product anyway.

Disney World vs Disneyland: Star Tours

The biggest difference between Star Tours at Disneyland and Star Tours at Walt Disney World is where the attraction is located.

That’s it.

You see, if you’re at Disneyland, you’ll need to head over to Tomorrowland (at light speed, I presume), where as if you’re at Walt Disney World, you’ll need to bypass the Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and wander over to Star Tours. I should mention that the outside of the ride at DHS is superior – it looks like Endor out there – but that’s about it. Once you get inside, it’s the exact same thing. The waiting areas are identical. The scratched up 3D glasses are identical. (Maybe make these not so crappy and have them look like the podracer goggles, because, you know… you’re Disney.) The ride is identical. Read the rest of this entry

Vampire Diaries – surely it’s a sign of End Times

This… this… Vampire Academy…  what?  The only thing more unbelievable than the fact that this show exists is the fact that it’s called Vampire Academy.  Talk about not burying the lead, huh?  Why not just call it, Harry Potter, But With Vampires!  This is the stupidest, most ridiculous, laziest flaming pile of feces that I’ve ever heard of.  This idea makes Percy Jackson look original and classy.  This is the very worst the vampire craze could ever get and surely a sign that nearly every vampire possibility can be exploited.  I assume they’ll get even more lazy the next time and just go straight up Vampires in Space, Like, You Know, Star Wars – But With Vampires.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Christmas Ornaments


This section of our Christmas tree is particularly safe thanks to these Star Wars: The Clone Wars Christmas Ornaments because light sabers and shiz. Ah, the magic of the Holidays and the power to dismember your enemies – it’s my kind of Christmas!

Star Wars and Marvel Outdoor Christmas Decorations make my brain go KABOOM!

Last year, I saw this Yoda outdoor Christmas decoration at the store and my mind was, to some degree, blown. This year, by brain is getting the Maxell treatment.

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones – The ‘Eyes’ have it!


Get it?  Get it?!?  You get it.  Pun-tastic!

Darth Vader Alarm Clock is NOT Strong with the Force

Some items don’t need to be made.  As I touched on in the Spider-Man pogo stick post, I understand why a brand is paired with a product (to make money), but it doesn’t have to be done badly.   Like this Darth Vader Alarm Clock.  This is crap.

Even if it’s the most awkwardly shaped.  Still, as always, good advice from Master Yoda.

Star Wars, Episode VI: Return of the Jedi – Special Edition (quick movie review)

star-wars-episode-vi-return-of-the-jediI find that the special edition of Episode VI goes back and forth – some changes I like, some changes I don’t.  I don’t like that they changed the song in Jabba’s Palace and brought it to the forefront of the scene – in the original, the song seemed like something that was happening in the background.  On the other hand, I did like the edition of the monster in the Sarlac pit – I prefer something there instead of nothing, or rather, a big hole in the ground that burps.  Of course, after this Special Edition, we got yet another change where Sebastian Shaw is replaced with Hayden Christensen in the finale ghost scene, which makes sense because… no, I don’t know why that makes sense.  But I did like seeing victory over the Empire all over galaxy, particularly when they pull down the statue.  Anyway, I can go either way on Jedi, so I leave it up to ya’ll.

Star Wars, Episode V: Empire Strikes Back – Special Edition (quick movie review)

star-wars-episode-v-empire-strikes-back-special-editionI find this one to be the least offensive of the special editions.  Hell, I think I’d go so far as to say that I like the I like that we get to see the monster in the cave on Hoth, and I like that they made Cloud City look like a city instead of some place where nobody lives or works.  They didn’t change much – I think this (like the entire series) is where they got the special edition right.  On the other hand, that part where they show Darth Vader going back to his Super Star Destroyer seems awkward – that line, “Tell them to prepare for my arrive” or whatever the hell he says doesn’t really sound like James Earl Jones.  I also think that in every single version of the Empire Strikes Back, you hear Luke’s lightsaber close down in the cave on Hoth before you actually see it, but maybe I’m just imagining things.

Anyway, Empire rocks, and for the most part, I think the Special Edition modifications are helpful rather than hurtful.

Star Wars, Episode IV: A New Hope – Special Edition (quick movie review)

star-wars-special-editionOf the three Special Editions, I’d say Episode IV is the one where they went the most amok.  The new stuff just feels like filler, especially the Mos Eisley bumps.  I’m fine with the added Jabba the Hutt scene, even if it looks like crap – although admittedly the DVD version looks way better than it did in its theatrical release (I haven’t seen the Blu Ray version yet).  I’ve already talked about the  Han Shot First thing (as has everyone on earth), so I’ll let that lie.  The only welcome changes were the extra ships in the climactic battle scene, and they didn’t exactly thrill me, but they certainly didn’t bother me.  I say stick to the original.

It’s so cold that…

The Brian Lehrer Show has come up with a way to make a game out of how cold it is here in the greater New York City area with the hash tag #ItsSoColdThat.  Here is my contribution:


9 Nerdy Christmas Gifts I Received

Yoda Outdoor Christmas Decorations


Yoda is rocking the Christmas spirit – too bad his light saber doesn’t have a handle.  Oh and the tip of the light saber is kinda…  Yeah.

I guess Yoda’s design is based off The Clone Wars…  I guess that’s what kids would most easily recognize…  What a strange, modern world we live in!
