AT-AT America

Star Wars abounds on nerd sites every day. But I found this amazing AT-AT Street Art  and a campaign to bring a life-sized AT-AT to America.

However, this life size AT-AT may not make it off the ground.

Robocop fans raise money to build a statute. Ok, what is with spending millions of money on building huge toys!!!  Can we not raise money for something a little more important? I’m all for geeking out, but this is excessive. We have people who play (sports) games who get paid 99 million dollars over a 5 year period,  meanwhile the average pay for a teacher is  37,500 (Illinois). Can we get our priorities straight, at least until the economy gets, I don’t know, a tad better? Maybe we can all throw away our money on something like this instead, it’s both educational/community oriented and geek worthy of our hard earned dough, like getting comics into schools [Edit: which did fortunately get all of its funding. Yay!].

Ok. Rant over. Watch this great comedy sketch on why George Lucas has female issues.
