Never, ever, in my Star Wars fandom did I think i would root this hard for the Empire to succeed. Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of Vader and his crew, but this is the first time I was actively pushing for the TIE Fighters to destroy the Rebel scum, and here’s why. First off, This is BEAUTIFULLY drawn and animated. I really can’t say enough good things about it. Reminds me of my favorite animated TV of all time, Gundam Wing. So hats off to Paul Johnson for making a stunning Star Wars fan-film. Now onto why I was rooting for R2-D2 to get his head blown off. The score was a perfect blend of evil and badass. The type of score that makes me want to so donuts in an empty parking lot while smoking a cigar. It was THAT good. It carried a certain emotional that had me relate to these badass Tie pilots as they swarmed out of their mothership. Which brings me to my favorite part of this short, The pilots themselves. Never in a Star Wars film do you get to see the faces of the enemy as they fly their fighters. This was so you could’t relate to them; it didn’t matter hat they looked liked, all that mattered was that they were the enemy and they needed to die! In that light this short turned that notion on its head! I was pleasantly surprised to see the blending of helmets and faces throughout this film. It made for a very unique aspect of the classic “dogfight” and I loved it. Kudos to all who were involved with this animated short, there are a lot of people in film industry that could learn from this. Let’s pray someone takes notice and gives this a full run of episodes.
Do I really need to justify the title of this post or do you just get it? I just get it. The legend of Tom Hanks grows exponentially larger everyday he walks this Earth. A man equal in his fame cannot match his humbleness. Humble pie for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I’m not sure what would happen if Tommy Hanks and William Murray started hanging out, probably would form a black hole. A black hole filled with the awesomeness of 1 billion suns.
The Nobodies had an INCREDIBLE time at SXSW 2014. Keep a lookout for some posts highlighting our journey, but until then here is a very special TNW shot from outside the Austin Convention Center.
What is the level that is 1,000 times above “heart warming”? Whatever it is, this story has gotten me to that point. I like to call myself an entrepreneur, but after seeing this I need to seriously consider what it means to be an entrepreneur. This kids wakes up every morning and lives his dream. Lives it!

I wish more places were run with that mantra.
I am a sucker for good marketing, and this? Well this is AWESOME marketing. Labatt Blue going full heel turn on its motherland (Canada) to make these can for the upcoming Olympics. Just give me a fancy can and I will buy 400 cases of your beer. I’m a simple man with simple pleasures (and tastes).
In a Story About a Real Life Superhero, Andrew Frey Gets High On Meth and Fights Off 15 Police Officers… While Masturbating
A man who was allegedly high on meth reportedly fought off more than a dozen police officers while publicly masturbating. Andrew Frey, 37, apparently made a series of outbursts and then began masturbating in an Oregon restaurant, The Oregonian reports. Incredibly, police were reportedly unable to subdue Frey with a Taser. It took 15 officers to finally take him into custody and stop him pleasuring himself. Frey later reportedly told authorities that he took methamphetamine and couldn’t remember the obscene incident, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s office. Frey was treated at a local hospital and then booked into county jail on charges of public indecency, theft of services, and resisting arrest. -Huff Post
Just when I thought there would be no more big stories in 2013, Andrew Frey goes ahead and blows my mind with this superhuman performance at a public restaurant. What grabs me here isn’t that he was high on meth or that he beat up 15 consecutive cops, no, what got me what that he did all this while slapping his ham. That is some impressive shit right there.
