Master Vos hasn’t quite moved his troops to Boz Pity yet.

If you’re a Star Wars fan then May the 4th should be a circled day in your calendar. Whether you celebrate it by Watching the Saga straight through, playing some LEGO Star Wars, reading some graphic novels, watching some Robot Chicken specials, bringing your action figure collection to a friends house to make bigger scenes, making Yoda pancakes, catching up on your X-Wing books, or listening to some Fan Fiction audio books, this is a day for all of us. This year however we got a double whammy because May the 4th was also Free Comic Book Day!! So not only could we do all the aforementioned activities but we could journey to our local comic shop and pick up some books on the house!!

Well this year was a hat trick for me. My wife and I recently joined up with the Saber Guild, a charity organization that raises money by dressing up as Lightsaber wielders and performing fights!! We were invited to Phat Collectibles by our sister organization The Dark Empire to troop for Free Comic Book Day and troop we did!

FREE!!!!

FREE!!!!

As my first event with this organization I had a great time. Taking pictures with kids and hanging with fellow Jedi is a great way for my May the 4th to go! Darth Vader made an appearance and Liz’s Aayla was very popular with the fans. I can’t wait for the next event where we’ll actually be doing a show! In the meantime check out the gallery and don’t forget to visit the links at the bottom! Joining up is a great way to becoming part of a larger world and becoming a real hero.

What the hell is a Harlem Shake?

So if you’ve been YouTube surfing lately you might have come across those “Harlem Shake” vids that are floating around. Apparently a person in an ordinary setting will start dancing and then the world erupts in craziness of Jacob’s Ladder proportions… uh….. Never mind the explanation here’s what we did:

So…. um….

I don’t get it.

Even Jar Jar showed up.

Mario vs Luigi: Sibling Rivalry!!!

Years ago two brothers became heroes. As time went on one began soar in popularity to become one of the most iconic characters in video games ever. The other brother watched and waited as the shadow he stood in grew and grew….

Then this happened.

Hey ma look it’s me!

It was AWESOME! I showed up with the EMC Monkeys to do a little halftime show for their cosplay contest. We had a great time!!  I got to see Joe Romersa perform some Silent Hill songs, a well deserved Link win the cosplay contest, and hang with the Saber Guild!!

Our show was the usual EMC beatdown and the audience LOVED IT!! I hope we get invited next year to return because we had a blast! Here’s a few little snaps!

Anyway this happened…

OH YEEEEAAAAAHHH!!!

Recently some friends of mine unearthed a rare never before seen Kool-Aid commercial from the early 90’s. Apparently I was in this one with Tony Sre and Sam-oan.

I’m pretty sure this aired somewhere between Ninja Turtles and Tiny Toons.

What’s your favorite 90’s cartoon?

What’s your favorite colorful refreshment?

Watermelon is delicious.

Bourne Movies are Confusing

Alright. I confess I haven’t seen the latest Jeremy Renner version but I have seen the Damon trilogy. American fight choreo seems to go something like this:

 
Fight Coordinator: Ok, I’m going to have you do do some really close quarters combat fighting. Very fast and direct.

Director: Great, I’ll tell the Camera Operator to prepare for his seizure.

Damon: So what do you want me to do?

Fight Coordinator: Oh it’s really easy, just stay close to these stunt men, flail around aimlessly, make some fighting grunts and they’ll take care of the rest.

Director: Ok are we ready to roll on this?

(The Camera Operator is spining in circles with his forehead on a bat.)

Camera Operator: 49… 50. Ok. Uh…. whoa…. Rolling!

Director: ACTION!

Everyone: ….

Well, instead of the usual EMC fighting prowess this week the monkeys decided to take a page from Hollywood and try their hand at an American (chuckle) fight scene. There’s no way not to enjoy this because whether the fight works or doesn’t work, it still works.

So tell me,

Is this Hollywood enough for you?

They do it monkey style.
