Apple founder Steve Jobs has been busy defending the iPhone 4, which has been mired in problems since before its launch. The latest scandal to crop up, dubbed “Antennagate,” is so-named because the phone’s antenna gets poor reception if the phone is held the wrong way. Check out this awesome animation from NMANews explain Antennagate, while showing an epic lightsaber battle between Steve Jobs and Microsoft’s Bill Gates. Jobs also has some rather impressive Force lightning skills. Translated: Apple’s founder Jobs helped the company reach billions in revenue – thanks to the iPod & the iPhone’s success. (lightsabre scene) Apple seems to be even bigger than Microsoft right now, and Jobs is becoming a leader in cutting edge technology. But some say, the bigger Jobs gets, the more evil he becomes. (Force field appears) When Gizmondo got a hold of the iPhone 4 model, Jobs ordered the police to search…
Luke snatches defeat from the jaws of victory in this re-edit of “A New Hope” After boasting to the more experienced pilots of Red Squadron, he arrives late for the attack, disobeys orders and ignores Obi-Wan’s repeated pleas to use the force. Han Solo is not impressed with Luke and must now deal with a vengeful Darth Vader and all Red Five can do is watch from above as the veteran Red Leader calmly demonstrates the correct way to fire a proton torpedo down a thermal exhaust port. Mark Dury mixed dialogue from the original trilogy with the Death Star scene in A New Hope, turning Luke into a worthless moron who can do nothing but watch as someone else picks up his slack.
Earlier this month, we posted Entire Star Wars “A New Hope” in MS Paint. After a hefty debate on DIGG, it came to our attention that the creator of this little jewel was a guy name foldsfive. Foldsfive, with the civil name David Court ultimately joined the discussion on DIGG and shared that there were more treasures to be found around on the internet. Sometimes I find myself amazed by the internet. How something I made an age ago can suddenly pick up interest again. It was something I made for fun (as an experiment to see whether I could do it, more than anything) for a site (www.b3ta.com) that wouldn’t post anything bigger than 250k. I did it all from memory, so the stuff about my incorrect lightsabre colours couldn’t interest me less. (and jesus wept, people accuse ME of not having a life for making it). At the end of the day doing that stuff donkeys…
“You’re gonna kill people if you give directions like that,” the frustrated sound engineer tries to tell Yoda as the Jedi master continues to grammatically invert directions in this latest adpromoting TomTom’s new Star Wars-themed voice series. Frankly, we’re almost excited enough to go buy a TomTom GPS unit JUST to get this voice pack.
Beautiful women in bikinis reading dialog from Star Wars may end up being a fantasy-come-true for quite a few of you. But where’s the video for us fangirls? May I suggest cute British rocker boys reciting dialog from The Empire Strikes Back, please?
Patrick Boivin posted this great new animated film on YouTube.com recently titled “AT-AT Day Afternoon” which is a blast to watch, here’s a quick blurb about the film. “When I was a kid, there are two things I wanted badly and never got… A real dog and a Kenner AT-AT Walker.” – Patrick Boivin
From a country that loves its mimes and Jerry Lewis, it shouldn’t be surprising that this vintage video from 1977 features a gaggle of dancing Darth Vaders and C-3POs. If droids dream, this is probably it.
Beware mouse droids and feline-hating Sith — there’s a new Jedi master in town and he’s not interested in joining the dark side. Here’s a Force-tastic fan-made video of a cat who has some rather impressive lightsaber skills. We’re especially delighted with the adorkable roll over lightsaber throw at the end.
Now THAT’S the droid we’re looking for! Granted, it is hard to miss. Carleton’s Goodsell Observatory gets turned into R2-D2 by an unknown group of enterprising students — complete with sound effects. All the “decorations” appear to have been draped or taped onto the dome; there was no defacing with spray paint, etc.
Forget singing hits from Journey, Madonna and Lady Gaga. What fans really want is to sing the Ewok celebration song! Here is an excerpt from the newly remastered “Return of the Jedi.” Side note: Wookies aren’t that good at karaoke. They tend to drive everyone else out of the bar.
(501st Great Lakes Garrison troopers – Jon Leopold and Craig Provine guard the Tauntaun cake!) Look at that detail! This is so gross, yet so damn cool. If I ever get married again, I would only do it to get a frikkin’ freakierer cake than this. Like, instead of a tauntaun, it would be a giant hairless albino monkey with Ringo Starr’s face, and… and his guts would be snakes with the faces of Yoko Ono and Margaret Thatcher and Sarah Palin and Madonna, and instead of Luke it would be David Bowie wearing Princess Leia’s metal bikini. Julie and I had Courtney Clark from Cake Nouveau of Food Network Challenge (and TLC Ultimate Cake-Off) fame do our wedding cakes including a special cake request from me — Luke Skywalker stuffed inside a dead Tauntaun! It was certainly one of the talks of the wedding evening. Older relatives were a…
Sweden-based artist Mattias Adolfsson creates Baroque–style portraits (think wigs and Steampunk gears with a cartoony twist) of Darth Vader, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Luke Sylkwalker, C-3PO and R2-D2, a stormtrooper, and even the Death Star and the AT-AT! The Death Star Also known as the deadly croissant Han Solo being harassed by the puritan police Darth Vader A timeless fashion statement (you just can’t go wrong with black) Stormtrooper Fighting in style Imperial walker Bobba Fett Chewbacca Contrary to beliefs Chewbacca uses his own hair not a wig Princess Leia C-3PO and R2 D2 R2 D2 is not as sophisticated as to warrant a wig the Emperor Jabba the powdered Yoda and Introducing as Luke Skywalker: Linnaeus the botanist supreme
Lucyravenscar managed to create a crochet pattern to sell on Etsy, the Star Wars amigurumi, a by-all-rights useless crocheted figurine with enough adorableness to destroy an entire franchise. You can find her shop here Via bizarrebytes.com
Now here’s a trend that needs to catch on – and quickly. G4 hosted a car wash staffed by cute girls in Star Wars costumes, mostly Slave Leia. For a small price, a harem of Slave Leias acted extra slutty with each other, and may have even washed your car, if the below video is to be believed. The event benefited the Make-a-Wish Foundation and men throughout the world. I feel very dirty right now. Oops, I mean my car is very dirty right now. behind the scenes:
Thanks to io9, we just discovered artist Justin van Genderen’s minimalist takes on planets and places of the original Star Wars Galaxy. While the vintage graphic design trend is nothing new, and in fact, Zazzle created a series of Star Wars WPA-inspired travel posters last spring, it’s also something that we never tire of. Our inner Stars Wars geek wishes that van Genderen had included Coruscant and Naboo in his series, but he had over 450 fictional planets to choose from. We’ll forgive him this time.
Artist Steve Bialik represents legendary Star Wars characters as samurai from traditional Japanese art. Darth Vader and Jabba The Hutt are a lot less scary when they are illustrated as a bald dude in a mask and a giant bullfrog.
