The ‘Star Wars’ That I Used to Know

- 06-28-12Funny Videos Posted by Jason Tabrys

I need to only hear a bar or two of that infernal Gotye song to feel blood slowly trickling out of my ears (Other songs exist! Play them!, but the people over at TeddieFilms have made everything alright by parodying the video from “Somebody That I Used to Know” and the pain that exists in we original trilogy Star Wars fans who have ire — real, organic ire — for George Walton Lucas.

As an added bonus: all of those fanfic writers who can’t stop tap typing their lusty desires to see Lucas slathered in body paint in the absence of a shirt get to relish in the glory of their ship coming in.

Enough of my words. Watch the video, share this article, and let these people ride atop a fire breathing pegasus toward internet stardom!

By the way, I think George Lucas goona sue somebody!

Dream Star Wars Comic Book Mashups

Hey kids, wanna see something neat? Here’s a dose of some cool comic crossovers that could only live in a bizarro world where intellectual properties were allowed to co-mingle more freely.

Brian Cronin from the Comics Should Be Good section over at Comic Book Resources put out a challenge in honor of the now departed Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie and some brilliant artists answered the call. Check it out, share it, and let us know what you think. These are, of course, mere requests, but if you’ve come this far and don’t, it sorta makes you an epic tease.

ABOVE: Since the Deadpool movie keeps moving further and further away from the realm of possibility, I say Marvel trades Wade Wilson to Lucasfilm for Asajj Ventress and a Wookie to be named later, then, at least, this could happen. As for the drawing, I’m split on which is my favorite part, Bounty Hunter fist-bump or the Deapool “Shh, don’t speak” to carbonite Han. What do you think?

This one is by Marco D’Alfonso, here’s his website.
