Let Them Eat BB-8
I’m kind of mad that The Force Awakens downplayed my favorite droids and gave BB-8 the majority of screen time. Not that BB-8 isn’t cool, but the little soccer ball is no R2-D2, if you ask me. Not too long ago we saw a woman named Yolanda Gammp make a…

Darth Vader Cremation Urn: Death Vader

Darth Vader Cremation Urn: Death Vader
I freely admit that being cremated after death is something that I want no part of. The idea of flames consuming my body or that of my loved ones doesn’t sit well with me. Some folks love the idea though because it allows their relatives to keep their remains on…
