The Most Offensive Painting Ever Created?

the prophet painting

As unforgettable yet controversial images go, it’s hard to top the one made by artist Cedric Chambers. His painting, “The Prophet,” shows Darth Vader carrying Jesus Christ with the smoldering images of the Twin Towers in the background. Looking at it, you might think the 23-year-old Denver artist had managed to offend three separate but equally passionate groups: Christians, New Yorkers and Star Wars fanatics. See the full painting and read Christian responses on Huffington Post…

The Force Is Strong With This “Star Wars” Wedding Photo

The Photoshopped wedding picture trend is showing no signs of slowing, and I, for one, am pretty happy about that. After seeing a wedding party being chased by a fearsome T-Rex and an engaged couple doing battle with a rogue zombie, it was only a matter of time before “Star Wars” entered the mix. Here we have newlyweds Mindy and John (along with their maid of honor and best man) facing down a group of AT-ATs making their way across Lake Michigan, courtesy of ridiculously talented photo editor Steven Kowalski. As I’ve always suspected, a lightsaber is the perfect wedding day accessory. [When Geeks Wed via Neatorama]

President Obama Confuses “Star Trek” And “Star Wars”

We’ve previously confirmed the United States has the geekiest administration in history but earlier today we found out we might have been duped! President Barack Obama is not a “real” geek as we assumed but a horrifying Fake Geek Girl!! While speaking on his sequester plan, the President was asked why he can’t force Republicans and Democrats to cooperate by locking them all in a room together. He replied, “The fact that they don’t take it means that I should somehow do a Jedi Mind Meld with these folks and convince them to do what’s right.” Big mistake, Mr. President. Read more…

Life Dream Status: A Lightsaber Class For Beginning Jedis

If you’ve always wanted to learn the art of lightsaber combat (and if you haven’t, please don’t talk to me anymore), you need to get your ass to San Francisco and join the Golden Gate Knights, a group of “Star Wars” fans who have created a lightsaber training class. Self-proclaimed Jedi Master/Total Dreamboat Alain Bloch uses his background in martial arts and stage combat to guide his budding Jedi Knights in basic lightsaber dueling skills while “Star Wars” music blasts in the background (my brain is literally about to explode just from typing that amazing sentence). One of the students dresses up as Darth Vader for each class, which I find in poor taste, but hey, whatever floats your boat. Check out a couple more pics of the Jedis-in-training after the jump!

J.J. Abramspalooza: He’s Producing A Third “Star Trek,” Doing 2 TV Pilots And, Oh Yeah, “Star Wars: Episode VII” Is Confirmed

Sorry if you don’t like J.J. Abrams. You must be having a rough time of it right now.

First things first, the rumor that he’s directing “Star Wars: Episode VII” is no longer a rumor: Disney has confirmed it.

In a press release sent out by the Mouse House, LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy sung her praises of Abrams, saying:

“It’s very exciting to have J.J. aboard leading the charge as we set off to make a new Star Wars movie. J.J. is the perfect director to helm this. Beyond having such great instincts as a filmmaker, he has an intuitive understanding of this franchise. He understands the essence of the Star Wars experience, and will bring that talent to create an unforgettable motion picture.”

I have to confess, I’m not a huge “Star Wars” fan. In fact the last time I watched a “Star Wars” movie was when I was 16 and hanging out with a skater dude named Janic. Basically, I watched the movie just so we could make out (this is a recurring theme in my life). What? He was cute and French Canadian!

Anyway, not a “Star Wars” fan, but I do love these “Star Wars” engagement rings, mostly because I love the total bitchiness of responding to someone’s “I love you” with a snarky “I know.” Thank God for Harrison Ford’s Han Solo’s bitchy response to Princess Leia’s declaration of love, right?
