Star Wars: Episode III, Backstroke of the West

a couple of years ago when i was living in shanghai i bought a revenge of the sith dvd off the street. it came with hilariously mangled subtitles that ranged from somewhat close to what the actors were saying to far, far away….

caption explanation

a quick pause in the caption commentary. for a while i couldn’t figure out how the captions got so mangled- i thought maybe it was done by computer, but in some cases like this one the captions make sense but have no relation to what is going on. general grevious is actually saying, “just as count dooku predicted”…

But wait, there’s more!

LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Steam

Kick Some Brick in I through IV

Play through all six Star Wars movies in one videogame! Adding new characters, new levels, new features and for the first time ever, the chance to build and battle your way through a fun Star Wars galaxy on your PC!

via LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga on Steam.

Er… That’d be VI for six, Steam.

Roman numerals FAIL! πŸ˜€

That being said, US $20 for all six isn’t bad. I already own boxed copies (at roughly double that), but having the physical media is always fun. Right?

Jawa Cake

jawa cake

A cake for a huge Star Wars geek’s 40th. Rum and Raisin Chocolate cake, 3×6 inch cakes and 1×5 inch carved. All accents are gumpaste or fondant.

“utini!” is the only legible word said by the Jawa in Star Wars and everybody at the party knew exactly what it was.

Geeks and Nerds Rule πŸ˜‰

Jawa, folks.

Not Java. πŸ˜‰

Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO Trailer

Bioware released the first cinematic trailer for their Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO, and it’s so awesome you might just forget that Jar-Jar Binks ever existed. Bounty hunters, Jedis, lightsabers, blasters, dramatic orchestral soundtracks, and gravelly Sith voices making threatening statements — if it’s from a long time ago and a galaxy far away (and incredibly awesome), you’ll find it in this trailer.

via This is the Star Wars: The Old Republic trailer you’re looking for.

I’m not into MMOs as a general rule, but gee – this looks mighty tempting.

Be patient while the video loads – it’s so worth it. πŸ™‚
