The ultimate crafting project for your car for Star Wars fans… a Darth Vader Hula Girl for your dash! Build your own and see Vader shaken’ his groove thing in your own car.
He gives step by step simple instructions and includes pictures with each step. The best part is the short video after the instructions showing Hula Vader in action with the driver playing the imperial march in the background… brilliant! Check out the instructions here. I’ve got to make one of these and then alternate it with my Buddy Christ and Homer Simpson.

The Star Wars Trilogy Video In 2 Minutes
This video retells The Star Wars Trilogy in 2 minutes using Legos and stop animation. The video is great fan fun. Watch the video above.
I love the scenes picked to highlight all of the events from the three movies. There are many ships, settings, characters, and events featured. One of my favorite is Yoda chilling in a recliner under an umbrella on Dagobah. In context it's hilarious.
The language used is very casual and without names which works since the voice narrating it is a child. This lends to the fun relaxed nature of the video. For instance the scene where Darth Vader reveals his identity to Luke is phrased as "That was when the Boy got very surprising news about his dad... Wud up son."
I want that Lego collection, Wow!
Weekend Crafts: Fathers Day Fun
In honor of fathers day I had to feature this Star Wars art project. bcampbell_to's (shown above) took Gabby Moore's (shown below) original black and white design and collored it. I love the geeky symbolism in the art and wondered to myself why not do one for fathers day.
This project could be a simple print and color project for the less drawing talented like myself. I would recommend printing on card stock this way if you decide to use paints or inks it will absorb it better.
For the more artfully inclined like bcampbell to's out there try drawing it on white cotton and coloring it.
Enjoy and happy fathers day!

Darth Jackson on Britain’s Got Talent
This clip of Darth Jackson on Britain's Got Talent is hilarious. The mashup of Michael Jackson and Darth Vader is great. I laughed so hard, though I have a weakness for dancing Storm Troopers. The only thing I think he should have done differently is when they asked him to take off his helmet he should have had a Michael Jackson mask on underneath. If he had done that I think he would have won... he still had my vote but what can I say Dancing Stormtroopers!!! Watch the clip below

Kiss Thinks Star Wars is Hotter than Hell
So who's scarier under the mask, Darth Vader or Gene Simmons?
Good question! Gene can be very scary, but I'd have to say he's still one up on Darth Vader.
In that case... lightsaber to your head: Star Wars or Star Trek?
Oh, no! Well, I have been a fan of Star Trek longer so I'm going to have to choose that over Star Wars.
You have chosen... poorly.
Now, I have to ask Bruce a bunch of Star Trek questions.
