Even as a child, I thought the idea of TV stations abandoning their programming on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in order to show a continuous loop of a burning yule log was absurd (thank you, Channel 11). But now that absurdity gets a dose of timely awesomeness thanks to this Darth Vader Yule log (thank you, guy with lots of time on his hands). Nothing says “Happy Holidays” like a burning corpse!
When I tell people that I grew up near Allentown, PA, most people invoke the Billy Joel song with the SUPER-homoerotic video. Others are familiar with Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom. But with the latest Star Wars movie hitting theaters next week, there may be renewed interest in the fact that Allentown’s Parkland High School campus looks A LOT like the Millenium Falcon. School officials continue to deny that the design is deliberate, but their architect at H. Solo & Assoc. probably knows differently.
WATCH as a dad puts his baby to sleep by breathing like Darth Vader
I’d like to point out that this is only adorable because he is the baby’s father. If he weren’t the father, this would be considered just plain ‘ol creepy heavy breathing.
WATCH the first full trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Warner Bros. released it early after it was leaked. Though I remain skeptical that the leak wasn’t planned to give it some free press to take attention away from the new Star Wars trailer that dropped last week.

A lot of people have noticed that in the voiceover, Luke refers to his father in the present tense. Is Darth Vader still alive?

After all this time, we learn that “The Force” is really just one heck of an electric bill.
WATCH Sesame Street’s S’mores-inspired spoof of Star Wars
It’s a message about over-indulgence and self-control, of course.
UPDATE: It didn’t even dawn on me until I posted this that Disney owns both The Muppets and Star Wars, making for a nice tease for the upcoming Star Wars re-boot. Well played with the corporate synergy, Disney, well-played.
