    Not necessarily a "funny", but a well-done vid from a jedi's perspective. Enjoy!




    Also, the currently viral Shia Labeouf motivational speech is available with a Star Wars theme, which is kind of funny. Not posting here due to the fact there is profanity so search and view at your own risk. Peace :)

    Not sure if this is funny. Guess it depends on your point of view.

    Fairly NSFW, by the way.

    So...yeah. SW isn't a totally sacred cow for me as I try to have a sense of humor about the Wars. However, this one didn't seem that funny to me. Maybe I'm just not a fan of what they were going for here with their parody. I don't think it's offensive...but pretty dang inappropriate. Although I'm a big proponent of free and protected speech of which this counts as.

    And, for those who ask, Lucasfilm/Disney said via Twitter "Lucasfilm & Disney didn't approve, participate in or condone the inappropriate use of our characters in this manner." I couldn't imagine the mouse doing so.

    So, not really funny to me, but I defend their right to publish it. It's Star Wars publicity, which is good, right??

    Yeah, not really a fan of the pics. Haven't paid for an issue of this magazine in a long time, and this spread isn't changing my mind.

    None Of Us Will Ever Find Out How ‘Star Wars’ Ends

    That's a good headline. Yep, I clicked on it. Here's it's basic premise:

    "Disney didn’t acquire Lucasfilm for $4 billion to just make the, right now, five announced Star Wars films. They will keep making them. There will be an Episode X. There will be an Episode XX. There will probably be an Episode XL. I’m now resigned to the fact that I will never know how this story ends. You will never know how it ends. J.J. Abrams will not know how it ends. George Lucas will not know how it ends. As Weird Al once sang, “they’ll be making these movies ‘till the end of time.”


    I'm okay not knowing the "end of the story." I almost prefer it since this means that my kid, and my child's child, etc., will be enjoying Star Wars movies, TV, merchandise, and other tie-ins for not only years, but for *generations* to come. This thought truly gives weight to the phrase "Star Wars is Forever."

    The AV Club is hosting Star Wars week on their site:

    http://www.avclub.com/article/its-star-wars-week-v-club-228424

    Here's their summary:

    The Force Awakens may or may not be as great as the trailers make it look, but the upcoming addition to the Star Wars franchise reminds both die-hard and casual fans how great the 38-year-old space opera is. So while we eagerly await the 2015 addendum to the galaxy introduced in 1977, The A.V. Club presents a week of content dedicated to the films and the outsize influence they have on pop culture. Today we present an Inventory of the spin-offs we’d like to see, from a brave little space slug to Lando Calrissian’s backstory; contributor Jesse Hassenger writes a convincing defense of the prequels; and we read the kid-lit versions of the original trilogy so you don’t have to. This week’s Watch This posts are dedicated to films inspired or influenced by Star Wars, while our Hear This feature shares an eclectic bunch of songs with references to the space saga. Stay tuned for an examination of the George Lucas-produced Red Tails, a Star Wars Run The Series, and our picks for the most regrettable losses from the Star Wars canon.

    Finally, practice voting for the 2016 presidential election with our far more important ballot: Star Wars Wars. Pitting the best Star Wars vehicles against one another in a suburban setting, we start out the daily poll by asking readers to decide the superior vehicle for the restless suburban teenager: podracer or landspeeder?
