you were wondering. I have recently managed to pull myself out of my spiraling “I-feel-sorry-for-myself” vortex of doom. In all seriousness though, great writing only comes when one is truely inspired. If despired is actually a word, I’m pretty sure I was that. I digress, no one cares.
Onto my point. So my inspiration for this article actually comes from how I was able to climb out of my spirally vortex of doom. How did I do that you ask? Yoga and meditation. Shut the fuck up, I know at least half of you are groaning and or facepalming. Let me explain myself.
As I was in the shower a bit ago after mostly successful yoga workout (unsuccessful in that I tried to headstand and got to eager and crashed into my desk), I was thinking to myself about yoga and in my mind, I replaced yoga, with Yoda. I called my practice Yoda.
If lightbulbs actually appeared above people’s heads when they had great ideas, this was one of those moments. Is it really just a coincidence that Yoda is only one letter off from spelling Yoga? Or am I just the last star wars fan ever to figure this one out? Either way, I thought about it more, as I started loving Star Wars even more.
As the informed know, Yoga is about complete control of mind, body, and spirit- to simplify it. It is about controlling negativity and bring positive energy to one’s being. You see where I am going with this, don’t ya? I realized I basically am practicing to become a Jedi! Both Jedi and Yogi’s (the colloquial term for one who practice’s yoga) practice control of what I have already mentioned. It’s about the ability to drown out negativity which is something I am well on my way towards. When I practice yoga, I feel in tune with everything around me and everything feels harmonious, much like a Jedi and the Force. I could also go on a linguistic rant about how I don’t think this is just a coincidence but I’ll spare you tears of boredom.
Well my list for things I must own before I die just expanded. Check out this active R2-D2 that doubles as a keg. Just make sure I can move it by remote and this little guy and myself can have some good ol’ times.
Yea so it’s pretty much a tamer Robot Chicken. Totally fine with that, not everything needs to be shock factor funny. Just feels like a feel good Star Wars parody and let’s hurry this up and air it. I literally know no details about this other than what you’re looking at because I had to post it as soon as friend of the show Marc passed it along. Enjoy.
Yea so maybe I have a secret crush on Bieber and whenever his songs come on in my car I rock out. You know damn well this is just gonna end up like the Backstreet Boys and N’Sync. We had to hate them forever, but in the long run their songs are just too fun in Karaoke settings and we start loving them. Might as well embrace it now and start with this Star Wars ‘If I Was Your Droid’ parody. That wasn’t easy to admit by the way, so come on show me your Bieber love.
It is a well known fact that Disney has gone in the shitter since the 90’s for the most part. Now since they own both Star Wars and Marvel, they’re just pissing me off now. It’s not enough that they turn the Empire into a joke by having them dance around on stage at Disney World. Yes, it’s hilarious but I will never again be intimidated by Boba Fett. Now, they’re making an animated series about the Hulk and Iron Man. A quote by the President of Disney Channel, Gary Marsh:
“Two months ago, we launched Marvel Universe on Disney XD, which became the exclusive home for new Marvel television content. We’ve developed Ultimate Spider-Man. Subsequent to the success of the Avengers movie, we’ve been developing a new Avengers Assemble. We’re talking about a Hulk series and an Iron Man series, too. They’re going to spend $150 million to $200 million to make these [movie] properties and then half of that to market them; I’m sitting here thinking, ‘Thank you, Lord, you’ve made me look good.”
I am speculating that the reaction to Ruffalo and RDJ’s awesomeness together in the film sparked this idea. Yes, I “ship” them as the tumblr community would say. Anyway, I just can’t help but be THAT cynical asshole. They’re trying to ride on the success of the Avengers as long as they can. If it’s good, then fine, but I still think they’re trying too hard to ride on the Avengers coat tails. This smells very George Lucas-y. You will never be as good as the 90′s Disney! Just Stop.
I was never one of those little girls who dreamed about their wedding day and planned it out down to the very last detail..until now. I had a vision, a burst of inspiration, so nerdy that I just had to share with you all. In my vision, I saw a Star Wars Wedding which got me to planning on Pinterest. Incredibly convenient way to plan a wedding, by the way.
I will show you a glimpse of my ideas because I need to share this with people who will appreciate it, not think I’m a freak.
Endor Is Quite Beautiful This Time Of Year
First of all, it’s pretty much set in stone that whoever I may marry will be a nerd, or at least someone that will tolerate all my unique and quirky qualities. If they can’t handle this, they’re not worth marrying. Second of all, I like simplicity so this won’t be something where everyone is running around blindly in masks, drunk as f*^% and hurting themselves trying to dance. Being incredibly drunk? Perfectly fine. I’m just picturing a nose dive into the cake or something.
If there is anything about my wedding that I’ve always known, it’s that it will be in the mountains, among the redwoods. Perfect wedding destination? Endor, of course. Well, something like it, anyway. Behold:
Star Wars fans were all over the 2pac hologram from Coachella 2012 and fitting in into the movies wherever possible. This is probably my favorite so far. Someone get Luke a bandanna cause he’s about to show his true colors after this. Thanks to Nick Allen for the tip.
