Jedimeister

The t-shirt deal of the day over at RIPT Apparel is the Star Wars-inspired shirt called “Jedimeister.”

The tee, by artist bnel, went on sale at RIPT today, Friday, February 18, 2011, at midnight CST, and will continue for 24 hours from then, and once it’s over, it will not be sold on the site anymore.

The design mashes up Star Wars with the alcohol Jägermeister, placing Jedi Master Yoda in the center of the liquor bottle logo.

Star Wars Christmas song

Oh no! The Empire has set up a blockade around the North Pole, impeding Santa from delivering gifts to all the good younglings! Looks like it’s up to the Jedi to save Christmas.

Check out the video below of “Star Wars Christmas,” a music video by Sci-Fried, the self-proclaimed “premiere geek rock experience.”

Not only is the song catchy, but it tells a great tale of Star Wars heroicism. And worth watching for the insane amount of Star Wars memorabilia present, as well as the puppet opening with Yoda.

Week of Geek: The Empire Strikes Back 30th Anniversary

Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back soundtrackThe Empire Strikes Back: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Special Edition)
Composer: John Williams
London Symphony Orchestra
1997 Release

WARNING! THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS MASSIVE SPOILERS!

It’s been thirty years since The Empire Strikes Back, the much-anticipated sequel to George Lucas’ 1977 mega-hit cultural touchstone Star Wars, opened in theaters around the world and the impact it made upon audiences and critics has not dulled a bit, and for good reason. The movie proved that the success of the first Star Wars film was no well-timed fluke and even a movie that essentially paid homage to space operas, samurai films, and westerns could evolve beyond its influences and become its own beast. Best of all it was better than Star Wars in every possible way: the script by Leigh Brackett (screenwriter of such classic films as The Big Sleep, Rio Bravo, and The Long Goodbye) and Lawrence Kasdan (who later went on to co-write Raiders of Lost Ark and enter his own directing career) opened up the universe Lucas had created and expanded the scope with an epic, serpentine tale that was more darker, richer, and emotional than the original and overflowing with memorable characters, and quotable dialogue; the direction by Irvin Kershner was professional and assured; and the cast, free of George Lucas’ stilted writing and relative inexperience with actors (despite the fact that he had directed the actor-heavy American Graffiti to great success), were able to give deeper and more nuanced performances under the direction of the deferential Kershner.

Star Wars

These days, most people with newer vehicles have some sort of navigational system to help them get to their destinations without getting lost. One of the popular GPS devices comes from TomTom, a company who might just be about to become a whole lot more popular to geeks and fanboys worldwide.

I many cases, people can choose the voice that is the most appealing to them who will dictate directions to them as they drive. Over the next few months, TomTom will be releasing a line of Star Wars character voices for just this purpose. The first voice released was that of the Sith Lord, Darth Vader, and in the coming months the assistance of C-3PO, Master Yoda, and Han Solo will also become available to users of the service.

Click on over to the other side for more and to check out a video of Darth Vader recording his lines for his TomTom debut!

Is Luke Skywalker Your Jesus? A Look At Some ‘Star Wars’ Religious Artwork

Star Wars1

For many, Star Wars and its entire mythology may be considered a religion in itself. But what if Star Wars WAS actually a religion all this time, and many classic works of art had been created in celebration of it? As we all know, there are many easily recognizable works of religious art — most notably of them, of course, is The Last Supper. So who of us in the world of geekdom could resist the image of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan, R2-D2, George Lucas, and many others sitting at that legendary one-sided table for a little womp rat feast?

In all, there are twenty images of parody. Along with the Last Supper images, you can also see things like Yoda as the Pope, Storm Trooper stained glass art, and Princess Leia as Mary, holding an infant Yoda. There’s a couple using newer characters from the movies we do not speak of, but they’re pretty cool as well.

Click on over to check out a few of the ones I enjoyed, and head to io9, who put together the gallery, to see all of the rest!
