Parody king "Weird Al" Yankovic was honored this past weekend by The Jedi Assembly for his work promoting Jedi and "Star Wars" as a whole.
Yankovic, known for his songs "Yoda" (a parody on The Kinks tune "Lola") and "The Saga Begins" (from Don McLean's "American Pie"), incorporates Jedi costumes in his concerts during the above-mentioned songs.
Jedi Council Members of The Jedi Assembly planned for months as to how to to appropraitely show Yankovic their appreciation since TJA does not have Honorray Memberships as other clubs do.
This past Saturday, September 29, 2007, the deed was finally accomplished. Council member 'Schph Gochi' met Al in person and delivered to him items of our appreciation:
*The latest version of the official TJA T-shirt *TJA lanyard *Both versions of the official TJA patch *TJA pin * Special "limited edition" of the TJA brochure signed by most members of the Jedi Council
"I included a printed page that had the TJA logo on the top... our 'goofy' shot from Dragon*Con... and a note stating that he is our 'unofficial' mascot," Gochi said later.
"Weird Al" also has a link to The Jedi Assembly on his official web page.
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
