    Father Tez Gelmir built this speeder bike rocker for his daughter's first birthday. He even posted an Instructable to follow if you want to build your own. It looks...difficult. At least for me, but I'm bad with tools. The finished product also looks kinda dangerous. Of co... / Continue →

    This is the $60 R2-D2 Dome Purse available from ThinkGeek (among other places -- shop around!). It looks like R2-D2 and holds things. Not very big things, mind you. Will it be this fall's must-have fashion accessory? I doubt it. Will slap-bracelets and toe rings make a com... / Continue →

    This is a video of a rice paddy in Japan that was grown with a Star Wars theme by planting four different kinds of rice to display 'STAR WARS' and pictures of R2-D2, C-3PO and BB-8. I cannot even imagine the planning that went into this because one time I tried planting a stra... / 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 →

    These are the $40 velvet Chewbacca leggings available from ThinkGeek (and possibly elsewhere but I'm not your personal shopper unless you let me ride in the cart in which case you've got yourself a deal but please don't push me too fast). The velvet gives them a little bit of ... / Continue →
