Star Wars Is Everywhere: Ep. LXXXI

Posted By Mike on June 4, 2012

Good morning. That's a nice short introduction. Let's dive in...






While promoting Men in Black 3, Will Smith mentioned Star Wars in an interview at MovieLine.com. Here's the excerpt:

"This brings Smith full circle, in a way, with the roots of his own success, which he credits to soaking up the pop cultural trifecta of Star Wars, hip-hop, and TV’s Dallas as a child.

“It just felt like somehow the limits got knocked off after I saw [Star Wars],” Smith recalled. He was 10 years-old when he first saw the sci-fi classic. “It coincided right with the time that ‘Rapper’s Delight’ came out, so it was the introduction to rap music and Star Wars in the same year. Rap music was something that only people in New York did, and it was separate and you couldn’t get it, but part of the experience of Star Wars made me think, ‘Oh, I can rap.’ My mind got expanded in a way that’s really hard to explain.”'





New York Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey explains how he plans on passing his love of Star Wars down to his 5 year old son in an article at Salon.com.




EOnline.com displays their choices for the best-ever Star Wars moments.




Check out some cool DIY Star Wars office supply creations (with links to more) at Craftzine.com.




Wired.com presents lists that include their top 7 favorite Star Wars video games along with the 35 best Star Wars tributes.




Mania.com examines the connections between Star Wars and Superman.




Continuing with another list, PCAuthority.com.au has revealed their 5 favorite Star Wars gadgets.




MTV.com examines what might have been if the MTV Movie Awards existed when Star Wars was originally released.




Hollywood luminaries (Jon Favreau, Damon Lindelof, Diablo Cody, Eli Roth, Simon Pegg...) share their Star Wars love in a 35th anniversary post at HuffingtonPost.com.




Judaism and the Jedi faith get compared in an article at ShalomLife.com.
(Thanks Stephen!)




Congrats to Belgian fan site TeeKay-421.be for celebrating their 15th anniversary! In celebration, click here to check out a nice interview with the site's founder Tim Veekhoven.




We head back to Wired.com for a list of "Star Wars’ Coolest Gadgets — And Their Real-World Analogs"




Our friend "Harsh Realities" sent over the following SWIE submission:

"For your next installment of "Star Wars Is Everywhere," I would like to suggest The Complete Bubby Anthology.

The book was written by a high schooler (and self-proclaimed nerd) in the late 90's. The book is very funny and the careful reader will
readily identify the occasional Star Wars references throughout, including a 1138 and a mention of Darth Vader, among others."




Taking you back to the 70s and Fisher Price...





And finally, Darth Vader thinks it would be swell if you were to attend ComiCONN 2012 on 8-18-12 at the Trumbull Marriott in Trumbull, CT.


(Thanks Mitchell!)
