May the Force be with you. Even in snow.
Darth Vader, Stormtroopers and TIE fighters were the object of amazement at the 66th annual Sapporo Snow Festival that kicked off yesterday. The Star Wars snow sculpture was created by Japan’s army troopers, or the 11th Brigade of the Ground Self-Defense Forces, using bulldozers, moving over 3,500 tons of snow to create the ginormous, 23 meter wide, 15 meter tall sculpture of StarWarian fantasy. The Sapporo Snow Festival is one of Japan’s largest winter events, attracting more than 2 million visitors a year and displays more than 200 snow and ice sculptures.
FYI: The design was approved by Lucas Film Ltd,…just in time to promote the December launch of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you think?

The best thing you will see all day…
Just when you thought the Internet could not be more awesome…Star Wars gets its own Instagram account. And the Selfie will never be the same.
What is cooler than Darth Vader taking his own selfie? Awesomeballz….

What Star Wars character do you think will be the next selfie?
If I could mention two of my favorite things, one would have to be Star Wars and the other Angry Birds. And now they are together in the latest Rovio game!
Angry Birds Star Wars is out TODAY, November 8th, on iPhone, iPad, Android, Amazon Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows Phone and Windows 8 – not sure on Chrome yet.
The coolest part is, the birds are made to look like famous Star Wars icons. Red Bird stars as young Jedi Luke Skywalker. There is a Han Solo bird, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, C3PO, R2D2 and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Angry Birds are the Rebels and the Bad Piggies are the Empire.
Complete with…Pig-Troopers! With a very piggy Darth Vader.
1 billion people can’t be wrong. The Angry Birds franchise is not only fun for everyone, but extremely popular and has been very successful for the 3 nerds from Finland.
If anyone wants me, I’ll just be down under my desk doing some…uh…research…
