Take a look at these incredibly inventive Star Wars inspired Manuscripts from Chey Chao.

Disney announced Tuesday that it is acquiring Lucasfilm LTD, including the Star Wars franchise, for $4.05 billion in stock and cash. In a press release announcing the acquisition, Disney announced that Star Wars Episode 7 is targeted for a release date in 2015 and that “more feature films expected to continue the Star Wars saga and grow the franchise well into the future.” On a conference call, Disney CEO Bob Iger said that in addition to Episode 7, episodes 8 and 9 are also in the works. The goal, Iger said, was to “release a new Star Wars feature film every two to three years.” This is Disney’s third major brand and studio acquisition in the last ten years. In 2006, the company acquired Pixar for $7.4 billion. In 2009, Disney acquired Marvel for $4 billion. Lucasfilm co-chairman Kathleen Kennedy will become president of Lucasfilm under Disney and serve as Star Wars brand manager. George Lucas will serve as a creative consultant. The other subsdiaries of Lucasfilm, LucasArts, Industrial Light & Magic and SKywalker Sound are also moving to Disney. The plan is to keep all Lucasfilm employees at its current San Francisco headquarters. What do you think of this merger between two of the biggest entertainment brands in the world?
Now, before all the sneaker heads jump on my face about this, I know this collection is from 2010. However, having already written a post about about an earlier collection, and seeing as how my sneaker knowledge is relatively limited, I’m putting this post up now because the all the clothes that the collection produced are super ill, regardless of when they dropped. Check the method.
I have to say that the nerd in me for sure came out when I saw these for the first time. The Han Solo in carbonite table would be a perfect fit into my spot for a one of a kind nerded-out centerpiece. The millennium Falcon coffee table comes a close second, but is still pretty dope. Designed by UK based R9 Studios, the cold cast aluminum, machined hardware and toughened glass geeky Star Wars Tables go for about $2,050 (£1,250)
Star Wars and Adidas Originals teamed up back at the end of 2009 to provide a fleet of heat for your feet in the year of 2010. (Now before I explain more, my sneak-head homegirl Gabby is going to chew me out all the way from D.C. because I’m 2 years behind schedule with these. But Gabs, you want me to post up the new sh*t, you gotta send it over first.) The extensive Star Wars x adidas Originals Collection is categorized into three different packs: the Characters Pack, the Vehicles Pack, and the Direct Pack. Both parties draw upon their renowned imagery-characters and starships for Star Wars and grizzled silhouettes for adidas Originals-to create pairs with flair. A few of the aforementioned characters and vehicles include the TIE Fighter, Darth Vader, and the X-Wing. The adidas Originals silhouettes that serve as the respective canvases are the Nizza Hi, the ZX Runner, and the Samba. And regardless of when they dropped, I still think their bomb. Check the method.
I recently helped my assistant move into a new place in the city, and half the time, all I could think about was NOT wanting to set up some bookshelf from Ikea with its notoriously overly complicated directions. After a while of thinking to myself, I wondered what are the most complex set of instructions one could find from Ikea…
Probably one of the posts that’ll have all the geeks going gaga. (It’s not really new, but I still had to feature it.) So if you ever wondered if the Princess Leia Gold bikini was the only sexy piece in Star Wars, here’s how you can change your mind. BlackMilkClothing created two amazing Swimsuits that features the designs of R2D2 and C3PO. Sold for 85$ each, these are probably going to be worn by every star wars fan’s girlfriend.
Yes, not only is this true, it’s actually pretty old. I got into a heated debate on the phone with my working colleague Neil about Snoop Dogg, and I mentioned his participation in the Adidas/Star Wars collab. Neil instantly called me a liar and told me I was making things up, so I decided to write this post just in case anyone else was unaware of the summer 2010 Adidas ad featuring Snoop Dogg, David Beckham, Daft Punk, and a few other big entertainers.
Further than that, there was a second ad put out by Adidas featuring the same stars shortly after. I know there are probably sneaker heads (like Gabby) cussing under their breath about how old this is, but I’m just trying to prove a point.
Typography is something that fascinates me to no end, and when Reginald Sylvester is your younger brother, and you have a graphic designer for a personal assistant, you see it all the time. Essentially Typography the art of arranging, designing and modifying type. Creating a well designed typography poster is no easy task, and takes time and patience. When a poster focuses only on typography as its main element, the designer has to carefully craft his design to make sure that the type is both legible and artistic at the same time. In his 16 Posters series, graphic designer Jerod Gibson creates typographic movie posters and enhances them by adding the famous quotes from the movies to the silhouetted designs.

If you happen to follow me on twitter, you know I just copped an Xbox 360, (Its only significant, because I haven’t play videogames in 4 years, and all my boys think its funny to try and destroy my free time.) But right now I’m trying to figure out which games to get a hold of, and which ones can wait, and when I saw the 4-minute-long trailer for “Force Unleashed 2″ I knew I had to get it. I know this footage is a bit dated, but it’s still quite impressive… check the method below.
