The Evening Post: Get Your Personalized Star Wars Weather Forecast

Geek Alabama Evening Post

So if you have not noticed, today is Star Wars Day!  May the fourth be with you!  And to celebrate, I have found a way to get a personalized weather forecast, Star Wars style!  Tom Scott has put together something called the Star Wars Weather Forecast.  It’s the weather forecast, as described by the planets of Star Wars.  All you do is type in the city you live in, and you get to see which Star Wars planet closely describes the weather where you are at.  For example, the weather in Anniston, Alabama is like Naboo.


So, want to try it out yourself, head to:

Watch The Star Wars: The Force Awakens Second Trailer


Wow Harrison Ford, you still look very good for your age!  The second trailer for the newest Star Wars movie called Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now out!  And, there is a ton of great footage from the movie in it, much more footage than the first trailer.  Judging by the second trailer, I think J.J. Abrams knows what he is doing, and this movie is going to rock!  Enjoy the trailer, and the movie comes out on December 18th, that can not get here soon enough!

Watch This Amazing Tie Fighter Star Wars Short Film


From the YouTube channel OtaKing77077 or Paul Johnson, comes a great animated short film called Tie Fighter.  The film features an elite squadron of Tie fighter pilots as they wage a battle against the Rebels.  The animation is spectacular in this, as it’s all done in 1980’s Japanese animation that is very detailed and over the top.  For someone who took four years on weekends to hand draw this, it was done beautifully!

This film is inspired by LucasArts’ 1994 TIE Fighter game, and you might not know about the game.  But after watching this, you will be looking up this game.  And, I like how he ended his YouTube description.

Don’t support me on Patreon, because I don’t have one! And don’t donate to my Kickstarter, because I don’t have one of those either. Instead, if you enjoyed this, give someone at your workplace, uni, school or whatever a random bar of chocolate or can or Coke or something. Seriously, it’ll probably make their day.  That would totally make my day.

You will love this, enjoy!

Check Out This Low Budget Star Wars Fan Made Trailer


The YouTube channel Dumb Drum made a low budget shot by shot remake of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer!  Instead of fancy computer graphics, they used cardboard and glue.  Instead of the snowy lightsaber scene, they shot in a field with a cardboard lightsaber, and it gets better!  The YouTube channel uses “Sweded”, which means summarized recreation of popular pop-culture films using limited budgets and a camcorder.  This is very Sweded, enjoy!

Check Out Star Wars Pancakes On Fat Tuesday


Someone did not tell me that today is Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day, or Fat Tuesday.  So Star Wars did something cool!  They took pancake batter and turned it into characters from the Star Wars films!  Let’s hope your pancakes don’t turn to the dark side!  Enjoy!
