Darth Vader helps… a lot. Read the rest of this entry
Well, here’s the second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. As per tradition, there’s no information on the plot, but this time around, it’s even more sparse than usual. (See the first trailer here.) Based on this new information, I’ve got some thoughts and predictions. Read the rest of this entry
The first season of Star Wars Rebels is over and although it was a bit clunky after the “Spark of Rebellion” opening, the show rounded it into a universe with interesting characters, plots and subplots. Read the rest of this entry
“Ha, cause, ha, it’s like the Special Edition!”
“Yeah, that was almost twenty years ago. Let it go.”
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!

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.
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!

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