WalMart: The Evil Empire

January 4, 2013 Leave a comment

People—myself included—refer to WalMart as the “evil Empire” for a variety of reasons, but it never occurred to me that WalMart might actually recognize itself as such. For years it used a star as its logo, but that star was replaced on June 30, 2008. It’s taken me until now, however, to see the connection.

Freaky, Fleshy Yoda Sculpt

October 13, 2012 Leave a comment

From TheForce.net: Here’s a look at what Yoda would look like if he were flesh tone and more human looking. He looks like something out of the Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings franchises. Done by Italian artist Andrea Eusebi, you can see more of his work here.

Kinda creepy how he looks simultaneously human and nonhuman, isn’t it?
