    This is a trippy $60 Star Wars sweatshirt available for pre-order from Rage On (you know I will!). It looks like the kind of sweatshirt a droid might vomit after getting a virus. It's like R2-D2 was in charge of delivering the design to the factory, but got his memory banks s... / Continue →

    The title says it all. Whatever the title doesn't say is best kept a secret between you and I. You do know what I'm talking about, right? That thing I told you the other day that I made you promise you wouldn't tell anybody else? You still haven't told anybody, right? Good... / Continue →

    This is the Darth Vader beer fridge and vodka pump built by artist Tom Sachs. With his cape drawn he just looks like Darth Vader, but with his cape pulled back he looks like a ton of Budweiser cans and some vodka. I'm not 100% sure what kind of pump system Tom hooked up to th... / Continue →

    Some people go all out with crazy Christmas decorations. Some go all out for Halloween. And then there's this crazy person who made a bunch of Star Wars character scarecrows and put them on display in their front yard, hopefully year round. And even if they don't leave them ... / Continue →

    This is a 500-pound, six-foot seven-inch Darth Vader cake created by Amanda Oakleaf Cakes, the same folks that made the 300-pound Stormtrooper one earlier this year. Not gonna lie, I probably would have jump-kicked his head off the same way I do my snowmen after they don't com... / Continue →

    This is a picture of some dude who decided to get a classic "Darth Vader with flowers" tattoo on the side of his face. Hopefully it's a cover-up. I'm kidding, hopefully it's a stick-on. And whether you agree with brobro's taste in facial tattoos or not, one thing's for certa... / Continue →
