Obi-Wan Kenobi in the News

And a follow up “Revenge of the 5th” post, though like most good Star Wars fans, I don’t recognise the prequels. Sean O’Neal writes the news reports for the AVClub, and he does it very, very well.  I find myself reading items for topics that have no interest to me, just to see what kind […]

The Tauntaun Song

May the fourth, etc. Last month I participated in A Musical Emergency, which is a loose collective of theater and music folks in SF that turns popular stories or movies into full length musicals. They divide the story up into bite sized chunks and everyone’s responsible for telling their part of the story however they […]

David Bowie Is Very Disappointed in You

http://www.davidbowieisverydisappointedinyou.com/ Oh, to have President Dubya on SU, so I could Stumble this to him! (Of course, that’s assuming he’d be on my friends list, which ain’t ever gonna happen…)

Google Romance

http://www.google.com/romance/index.html I love that Google seems to be staffed entirely by bored nerds who come up with stuff like this (and the pigeon thing, and the moon thing, etc., etc., etc…) I also love that I don’t own any Google stock, so as far as I’m concerned these guys are here purely for my entertainment, […]

Review: Juvenile felis catus

http://www.dansdata.com/kitten.htm I love it when nerds try to tackle “off-line” decisions; in this case, whether or not to get a kitten. I also love that babies rank below new video cards in desirability – I knew I couldn’t be the only one out there… Clearly, and despite competing opinions, a kitten is substantially preferable to […]

):–Crazy Pictures–:(

http://www.supyo.com/home/crazypics/crazypics_8.htm Most of these are criminally unfunny, but the thumbs-up is for the upper-crust penguin and the Last Supper party trick. I can’t decide which one I like more so I’m posting neither.

UUUHHHGGG-rrrrRRR!

http://huuuuuurrnnnnnnnnnnn.blogspot.com/ Like everyone else in the world, Chewbacca now keeps a blog… This is quite a smart satire – Chewy (sic… yes, I am a Star Wars nerd) posts the usual blogged crap like cute puppies and ironic Gary Coleman references amidst entries that lack any intelligible thoughts.

My World and Welcome… Funny Pages: Handy Latin Phrases

http://web.mit.edu/afs/athena.mit.edu/user/d/r/dryfoo/www/Funny-pages/handy-latin.html I get a tremendous amount of nerdy joy in being able to put my basic Latin skills to use, so these made me laugh: Sona si Latine loqueris. Honk if you speak Latin. Must find a bumper sticker of this for my car… Si hoc signum legere potes, operis boni in rebus Latinus alacribus […]

WrekOnes favorite websites – StumbleUpon

http://wrekone.stumbleupon.com/ Stolen from both Wrekone AND Eddietg. Clearly my thieving skills are improving by the minute. Aside: I’m pretty sure this is the same cartoonist who did the wonderful “map of a cat’s brain” comic – must find more of her stuff!
