    This is a short video of Jonathan Liu's 2.5-year old daughter singing the Star Wars Imperial March to herself in her crib at night. Apparently they had just watched the original trilogy over the past few nights and it stuck with her, and they didn't just put her up to it like ... / Continue →

    This is a series of faux-marble sculptures created by artist Travis Durden (not his real name) featuring Star Wars character heads on classic Greek sculpture bodies. Do they all have penises? I sure hope so. I've always wanted to see how I size up next to Darth Vader and Bob... / Continue →

    This is a video of Darth Vader running around and Force-choking anyone and everyone at Comic-Con over the weekend. Obviously, some people are better at being pretend Force-choked than others. Me? I would have just stood there with a confused look on my face. Is this guy try... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Buddy Crotty lulling his crying baby daughter back to sleep with the sound of Darth Vader's breathing. It's pretty effective. When I was a baby my parents used to lull me to sleep with the sound of heavy metal and now I can't go to a concert withou... / Continue →
