Chewbacca from Star Wars as a Baby! So Cute!
The Simpsons Animated Series has been on television long enough to be a part of our pop culture for generations to come. I guess it should be unexpected that this beloved tv show should have made its way into other pop culture phenoms such as Star Wars, comic books and…ugh, the Twilight series. What are your favorite TheSimpsons mashups?
This pop culture masterpiece is priced at $54.99, which might be a tad high until you notice that the artist even made the helmet antenna. Star Wars
Nerds Fans alike will crave this Boba Fett crocheted hat as the temperatures plummet and their coolness factor drops with it.
“Bring me your nerdy, your nostalgic, your cold masses yearning to be stylishly warm.” Someone famous said that. Oscar Wilde, I believe. After being inspired by Mr. Wilde’s famous Retro Sweater Speech, we at the National Sweater Association believe this collection captured his dream. There were too many to post here, so go to www.widelec.pl to see the whole kitten kaboodle of 80’s goodness.
We ran across this at washingtoncitypaper.com, and it was too good not to share.
Is it the inclusion of Jabba the Hut in Episode 4? Is it Jar Jar Binks? Or is it Hayden Christensen’s less-than-stellar acting? No matter what, a Star Wars fan is sure to have some heartburn about one injustice or another. We love the original. But, when it comes to the remastering and, for some, the prequels, like Obi Wan, Anakin, Luke, Han, Leia, and C3-P0 we still “have a bad feeling about this.”
One of the best reasons to see a movie in the theater (and subsequently pay exorbitant amounts of money for tickets and snacks and drinks and sometimes fancy 3-D glasses) is arriving early enough to catch the new trailers. Naturally, this is a perfect time to exercise one’s expert movie-judging skills (“Oh, that’s gonna rule.”), often to the chorus of other such avid film critics in the surrounding seats (“I bet that’s going to suck big time.”). Sadly, some of these trailers are wolves in sheep’s clothing, leading poor, innocent moviegoers to their entertainment demise. I’ve taken the liberty of highlighting a few such films that, after building up the hopes and dreams of the public, stomped all over our expectations.
Why It Should Have Been Awesome
The previews for this movie were absolutely mind-blowing. Replete with lovely damsels (Gwyneth Paltrow), dashing heroes (Jude Law) and a veritable grab-bag of big name stars, this film promised a little something for everyone. Perhaps its biggest claim to fame was as one of the pioneering films of computer-generated digital scenery.
Why It Sucked
What did this film ultimately give us? A good nap. This awkwardly-paced-post-Depression-era-wannabe-steampunk-meets-Indiana-Jones-but-not-as-cool snoozefest proved to be a major bummer. The filmmakers relied too heavily upon the special effects and the big names to cover up the fact that the whole plot line was a hairsbreadth away from absurdity – and not the ha-ha kind, the uh-oh kind. Not even Angelina Jolie could hussy this movie up enough to be palatable.
Why It Should Have Been Awesome
It’s effin’ STAR WARS. How can you ruin that? Nearly two decades after the release of “Return of the Jedi”, nerds and closet nerds across the world almost tossed their pocket protectors aloft in joy at the news that George Lucas was (finally) releasing a new episode of the legendary franchise. The build up for this prequel was so great that fans waited in line for weeks to get tickets – sleeping in shifts, taking time off work and ultimately cementing their own place in Star Wars history.
Why It Sucked
Jar-Jar Binks. Hands down, one of the single-most irritating computer-generated characters to ever plague the silver screen. Combined with the cheesy dialogue, most viewers were left with an overall feeling of “Eh.” Take, for instance, the scene immediately prior to the famous pod race. Everybody’s favorite pseudo-Rasta alien is assisting the young Anakin when a nearby beast of burden experiences some unfortunate digestive discomfort (read “a space camel farted on Jar-Jar”). Seriously, George? A fart joke? Lucky for us power nerds, Lucas redeemed himself with “Attack of the Clones” (watching Yoda lay the smack down certainly didn’t hurt).
Why It Should Have Been Awesome
Now, the creators of the Terminator films could probably throw mud at a roll of film and still win awards. Not a big fan of the franchise myself, I will admit to getting pretty excited when the previews for “Salvation” first aired. The special effects looked spectacular, the cast was promising, and no matter how far removed from the story you are, John Connor is tantamount to an American legend. Everyone wants to see humanity put up a fight against the big bad Skynet jerks.
Why It Sucked
What moviegoers experienced was something more like standing inside a giant bell and letting your most annoying friend beat on it with a hammer. Computer-generated Arnold Schwarzenegger couldn’t even save this film. (Apparently, he was too busy being the Governator to renew his role as the Terminator) Roughly twenty minutes into the film it becomes apparent that most of the budget went toward the explosions, because it certainly didn’t go to pay the scriptwriters (If it did, somebody deserves a refund). Christian Bale did his “Hi. I look angry all the time and speak in a gravely voice,” thing, while Sam Worthington tried desperately to make this movie not terrible. A valiant effort, sir, but I’m afraid the end of the movie sucked the last bit of good quality out of the experience. Of course, it was hard to see what was happening with the big block of cheese in the way.
Why It Should Have Been Awesome
The American public is a sucker for a good scary movie. They especially love a scary movie with lots of action and a good dose of humor. This Universal Studios release promised all of the above- Incorporating horror film legends including Dracula, the Frankenstein monster and werewolves, with a little dose of sexy thrown in (hello, Kate Beckinsale in leather pants). This film offered a talented (in theory) cast and an exotic spin on an old storyline. Any individual with a taste for classic horror had every reason to anticipate Van Helsing with all the excitement of a 15 year-old-girl before a Jonas Brothers concert.
Why It Sucked
It makes it an even bigger shame, then, that even with sexy (sort of) vampires and Kate Beckinsale’s leather pants, this movie was still terrible. It was like watching a really good idea dissolve into utter disaster, as actors who’d previously been considered very talented, exclaimed (!) their way through a cheesy and awkward script. Combined with the fact that the big plot twist was that Van Helsing was actually the angel Gabriel, this film was an extra large dose of WTF. The end of the film was the real kicker, as the aforementioned big block of cheese made its debut performance when the slain heroine and her family appeared in the sky (apparently that’s what happens when you go to Heaven). Frankly, if I started seeing giant cloud people after discovering I was a long-lost archangel (side note: How does God “miss” an archangel? Aren’t they pretty important?), I would need a good stiff drink, and possibly a CAT scan.
Why It Should Have Been Awesome
This fourth installment of the epic Indiana Jones franchise was anticipated with almost as much excitement as any episode of Star Wars. Harrison Ford was returning as America’s most awesome professor, complete with a dreamy protégé in the form of Shia LaBuoef (fresh off the fame that came with “Transformers”). The world could hardly wait to see what magic Lucasfilm would make combining the much-revered story line with the newest advances in filmmaking.
Why It Sucked
The worst part about this film is that it wasn’t really terrible, it was simply, and sadly, disappointing. The novelty and adventure that ran rampant in the first three films fell flat in “Crystal Skull”. It also didn’t help that previously mentioned dreamy protégé was sort of annoying (like Jar-Jar Binks annoying). If this movie were to be summed up using math: Soviet Bad Guys vs. Indiana Jones and that chick from “Raiders of The Lost Ark” vs. Creepy Glowing Alien Skull ≠ Awesome. I’m willing to bet that the Ark of the Covenant could totally beat up the Crystal Skull in a fight. Any takers?

I feel this deserves a followup image with a record cutting off the tape of the cassette with the exact same dialogue, just to be fair. And then I suppose you would have to include a phonograph slicing the record apart as well. So many family issues! The audio recording therapist is going to be hearing about this.
Are two Batman-related posts in two days a bad thing? To some, maybe, but to many, absolutely not. For some people. we could post something about Batman every day and people would like us more. Or not. I know that Star Wars stuff makes people like you more. Everybody likes Star Wars.
So, apparently whoever composed this photograph was super stoked about the release of The Dark Knight. Or maybe there was some sort of Samsung contest for images using a Samsung phone and The Dark Knight had just come out so this person was smart and thought it would win. Maybe it would win. I’m guessing it didn’t, since I cannot, for the life of me, find the source for this picture anywhere. Is it yours? If so, claim it so I can give you credit.
Not too long ago, we did did a post on legendary female sex symbols, and we felt like we were really leaving out a lot of eager eyes. So, here is a list of legendary male sex symbols throughout the ages. Since any “measurements” we’d include would be downright pornographic, I’ve gone ahead and found a nice shirtless picture of almost every gorgeous guy. Also, it turns out that a lot of male sex symbols wear cowboy hats at some point of their career, so if there’s one of those floating around I’ve included it.
Rudolph Valentino, also known as The Latin Lover, The Great Lover, The Sheik, and The Great Lover of the Silver Screen, starred in The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and the role made him a star. He had two scandal-filled marriages, and also sang and danced.
And while no cowboy hat picture was readily available, the following gem was available, and it simply boggles the mind.
Nice shoes, Rudy.
Also known as The Tasmanian Devil, Flynny, Satan’s Angel (thanks, Marlene Dietrich), and The Baron, Errol Leslie Thomson Flynn was best known for his role in The Adventures Robin Hood (1938) and In the Wake of the Bounty (1933) where he played Fletcher Christian. I think that’s also the one where he sticks the knife in the ship’s sail and rides it down. He was married 3 times, had 4 children, and died at 50 of a heart attack.
Known as Gabe, The King of Hollywood, and Pa (thanks to Carole Lombard), Clark Gable was a very big movie star who was very well known for many roles, including that of Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind. He was married five different times. He may have stayed settled with Carole Lombard, but she died in a plane crash in 1942. Seven years later he remarried.
Neato fact – Clark Gable ALSO played the role of Fletcher Christian – in the 1935 movie Mutiny on the Bounty. The thirties were a big time for movies about the HMS Bounty. Fun times, that led to the discovery of the Pitcairn Islands.
The coolest thing, by far, about Gary Cooper, is the fact that he was friends with Ernest Hemingway for over twenty years. In fact, though it’s purely coincidence (probably), Hemingway’s suicide was one short month after Cooper died of prostate cancer. Gary Cooper was the epitome of style and dashing handsomeness, and he stared in a lot of Westerns. That’s why there is a picture of him with a cowboy hat.
Unfortunately, no pictures were found with Cooper shirtless. If you have one, please feel free to leave a comment. Another tidbit of info – Cooper turned down the lead in Gone With The Wind. Lucky for Clark Gable, eh?
Cary Grant was one smooth mofo. He did have slightly Puritan morals, in that he refused the role of Humbert Humbert in Kubrick’s Lolita. He WAS married to five different women during his lifetime, so he wasn’t THAT much of a Puritan. He also, to my knowledge, doesn’t have a photo with a cowboy hat. But this outfit is pretty cool:
Cary Grant was British, but he cultivated an American midwest accent very well, and was sort of known for it.
Also, there is a shirtless picture. You’re welcome?
Chairman of the Board, Ol’ Blue Eyes, La Voz, The Voice, Swoonatra, The Sultan of Swoon – all these names apply to the one and only Frank Sinatra. A Hoboken native, Sinatra won the hearts of a collective America with that voice, those eyes, and that swagger.
He also played a sailor at one point, apparently. He was married four times – once to Mia Farrow – and he was a member of the Rat Pack along with Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop.
Named Elvis Aaron Presley, he is better known as The King…of Rock ‘n’ Roll. He was a pop singer, an actor, a soldier, and an absolute dreamboat. Check him out in uniform:
It can be easy to overlook the later, bloated, sequin years. Especially when you see a picture like this:
How cute was he?
James Dean, star of Rebel Without a Cause, died tragically at the age of 24 years old. Not before he captured the hearts and loins of young women in the 1950’s. His bad-boy image and soulful eyes continue to haunt generations of women far beyond Dean’s time.
Looked good in a cowboy hat, didn’t he?
Rock Hudson was a sex symbol to women, who were attracted to his masculine good looks in the movies, and to men, too, since it turns out that Hudson was actually homosexual. He died of AIDS, and was the first famous person to announce he had it. So, handsome, talented, and BRAVE. That was Rock Hudson.
The blue eyes, the pouty lips, the exceptional pecs. Paul Newman was a sex symbol first, and a saintly philanthropist after that. He was awesome. The Long Hot Summer is one of the best movies ever. And not that crap remake with Don Johnson. Who also didn’t make the list.
Obligatory cowboy hat picture.
Can we just say? Damn.
Blond, blue-eyed Robert Redford was the Condor in Three Days of the Condor , Gatsby in The Great Gatsby, and an A-1 hunk of the first degree. The Way We Were? Wowsa.
And I guess he plays a mean game of tennis.
Even at 81 years old, Sean Connery is still considered one of the sexiest men alive. Back when the was none other than 007 – James Bond – he was unstoppable. Plus, that Scottish accent is to die for.
In lieu of the cowboy hat shot (which is very hard to find, by the way) we thought we’d remind you of Bond…James Bond.
David Cassidy was, well, a pretty big deal in the 1970’s because of his role as Keith Partridge on The Partridge Family. His mom on The Partridge Family was also his stepmom in real life – having married David’s dad Jack Cassidy (of TV fame). Because the mullet precludes any need for a picture with a cowboy hat, here is a picture of a single cover that should please the snarkier of you.
The Puppy Song was actually written by Harry Nilsson. He wrote it because Paul McCartney asked him to. That might bring the question, “Why does this list lack a single member of The Beatles?” Well, Gentle Reader, your humble author is a stark raving Beatles fan, and can’t just stick them in a list of sex symbols. Plus, most girls wanted to MARRY a Beatle. Anyway, Paul McCartney asked Harry Nilsson to write this song for Mary Hopkin. David Cassidy covered it as his B-side to “Daydreamer.”
Burt Reynolds. Famous for many “road” films, as well as his amazing mustache (seen in the below photos), his wildly popular Smokey and the Bandit solidified his sex symbol status long after notable appearances in Deliverance, The Longest Yard, and White Lightning.
Another well-known part of Burt Reynolds’ life was his high-profile romance and marriage to Loni Anderson. They were married for 7 years, and were tabloid fodder when they decided to break up. He was also romantically linked to Sally Field and Dinah Shore.
For a short time, Williams was also the spokesperson for Colt 45 Malt Liquor. Many people consider advertisements of his ads as highly collectible, though you won’t get him to sign one of those “collectibles.” He refuses.
Harrison Ford did a little bit of acting in the 1960’s, but it didn’t take, and he became a carpenter. He had a role in American Graffiti, but the real breakthrough came in A New Hope, the first Star Wars movie. The role of Han Solo started in 1977, and it was VERY well received by the female population. Then, in 1981, Ford appeared as Indiana Jones in the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark and it was all over. A whole nation was in love.
He continues to make films, and is still a fabulous actor, and handsome to boot, but the 1980’s were the heyday of Ford’s career. More Star Wars movies, Blade Runner, Working Girl, and a slew of other movies made Harrison Ford arguably the most popular actor of the 1980’s.
I don’t know what this photo is from, but are we complaining? I didn’t think so.
New Jersey-raised Bruce “Bruno” Willis found his fame playing David Addison on the popular TV show “Moonlighting.” The chemistry between Willis and co-star Cybill Shepherd was amazing…until the show jumped the shark and allowed the two leads to get together. Thus, “Moonlighting” became a cautionary tale. Too bad TV continues to refuse to listen.
Patrick Swayze (RIP) started his career as a heartthrob with his portrayal of Darrel Curtis in the movie The Outsiders in 1983 and became every boy’s hero as Jed in Red Dawn in 1984. He won the hearts of everybody’s mom and grandma as Orry Main in the mini-series North and South.
But the crowning jewel – the role that sealed his fate as an iconic sex symbol, was his role as Johnny Castle in 1987’s Dirty Dancing. Oh yeah, and then there was Road House. Yeah, Patrick Swayze was the sexy king of the 1980’s.
Brad Pitt had a number of TV roles in the 80’s, including a guest spot on 21 Jump Street, an uncredited role in Less Than Zero (ok, so that was a movie), a stint on Dallas, and a short run on Growing Pains. His nothing status was elevated to Sex Symbol History with his role in 1991’s Thelma & Louise.
Thelma & Louse led to the ill-fated Johnny Suede (though he looked really good), and he continued being a hot ticket until he hooked up with Angelina Jolie and became a goateed father to millions. Sad.
Let’s face it. Denzel hasn’t lost any of his charm, even now that it is well into the 2000’s. And, he didn’t reach iconic sex symbol status by playing sexy, substance-less roles. In 1992 he played Malcolm X in the biopic, and continued to play serious roles for the majority of the 1990’s. So, he’s a serious sexy man.
George Clooney rose to sex symbol status on the small screen, first with his role as Booker Brooks on Roseanne, then on a show called Bodies of Evidence, and then on the hit show Sisters. Come 1996 he got a prominent role (leading, that is) in From Dusk Till Dawn, that weird Quentin Tarantino vampire movie, and then his career was off like a rocket.
In 1998 he played Capt. Charles Bosche in The Thin Red Line, but since everybody and his brother was in that movie, the photo above comes from 1999’s Three Kings – a surprisingly good flick. He also played Batman, but we won’t talk about that.
And, who are we kidding, plenty of people still have huge crushes on Clooney. He is, thus far, a confirmed life-long bachelor. Despite the fact that he was married for a brief period, he has embraced bachelorhood to the nth degree. He’s said that he will never again marry, and that he will never have any children. Michelle Pfeiffer and Nicole Kidman both lost a $10000 bet that he would father a child before his 40th birthday. He sent their money back, saying that he bet double or nothing that he still wouldn’t have any kids by the time he turned 50. That’ll be May 6th of this month, so unless there’s something we don’t know, both ladies will be paying up soon.
We all first took notice of RPatz (as TMZ calls him) when he played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Then. Oh then. Then Twilight happened. Stephanie Meyer’s clumsy yet wildly popular series about a regular young girl who falls in love with a noble and tortured vampire (played by Pattinson) has taken the world by storm and people simply freaked over him.
He’s done other projects during this time, like when he played Salvador Dali and was in that movie with that blonde girl from Lost, but all anybody talks about is the Twilight stuff, and whether or not Robert is dating/married to/having a baby with his costar, the much-less-pretty-than-him Kristen Stewart. With a break in the movies, or once they’re over, will RPatz fade into obscurity, or will he end up belonging on this list?
Robert Pattinson’s co-hunk in the Twilight series is Taylor Lautner. And, he’ll be 19 years old in February, so I’m telling myself that his appearance in this list is not at all creepy. Heck, James Dean was pretty darn young when he was so popular, so…
Since Lautner was only 16 years old when the first Twilight movie came out, lots of people felt pretty skeezy thinking he was cute and all. Still though, there were countdown clocks until his 18th birthday ala The Olsen Twins. He was seventeen when New Moon (the second of the Twilight series), so still off limits, but since the producers had considered replacing him because of his lack of muscles, he buffed up big time.
Taye actually became a sex symbol with 1998’s How Stella Got Her Groove Back, but he’s been such an enduring example of hotness that he made the list for the 2000’s. He was a hottie patottie on Ally McBeal in 2001, and appeared as a suave bandleader in 2002’s Chicago.
This picture is actually from the 1990’s, when Johnny Depp was Tom Hansen on 21 Jump Street. Orignally, I was going to put him on the 1990’s portion of the list because of that. 21 Jump Street was Depp’s road to the American heart and mind (and other parts) and got him to an audience that his role in Nightmare on Elm Street didn’t quite achieve.
So, the 1990’s saw Depp do Edward Scissorhands, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Benny & Joon, and Don Juan DeMarco, all films that reinforced his OH-my-goodness he’s the most beautiful man alive status, but it was also in the 1990’s where he took some risks. He did Ed Wood (if you haven’t seen it, well…), Dead Man (a stunning Jim Jarmusch fiilm), The Ninth Gate (a devastatingly weird Polanski film), and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (he played the Hunter S. Thompsonesque character).
The 2000 years saw him play a combination of edgy roles and crowd-pleasing roles. Either way, he’s been an iconic, massively popular sex symbol (which he has a very hard time understanding, which just makes him more attractive) since the 1990’s and will likely continue to be so for years to come.

Trolling around the internet, like you do, I have come across some pretty darn fantastic-looking cakes. I have no idea what tastes good, as I didn’t get to taste any of these cakes. Plus, I’m not much of a cake eater. But here are the cakes that particularly struck my fancy. We’ve got geek cred out the wazoo, here, Folks. I’ll split them up into sections for you:
Like we could have a post on fancy cakes without showing the Star Wars cakes? Sheesh. What kind of website do you think this is?
The detail on this cake is fantastic. In case you’ve been living under a rock that’s under a sheet of moss which is under a big lake somewhere and you HAVEN’T seen the Star Wars movies, this is at AT-AT – an All Terrain Armored Transport “walker.” They can carry up forty storm troopers. Not the cake, though. I’m sure it just carries deliciousness.
Darth Vader Cake
Just in case you ever wanted to eat Darth Vader’s face off. Hey, I don’t judge you.
Jabba & Slave Leia Cake
I’m sure that it’s not disconcerting at all for a four-year-old to eat a cake depiction of a slave Leia in a cake metal bikini. At least we can be pretty sure that the Jabba part of the cake is not actually Jabba-flavored, which I imagine tastes a lot like earwax. Or frog. He eats a lot of frogs.
Millennium Falcon Cake
I’m sure that cake version of the Millennium Falcon smells a lot better than the ACTUAL Millennium Falcon, which I image smells like damp Wookie and a burned-out Hyper Drive. It doesn’t, however, come with a young Harrison Ford, so I’ll pass.
This is way too cute to eat.
This was originally going to be the whole post, but then I found the Star Wars cakes, and a bunch of other cakes, and…there you go.
Speed Racer Cake
Go Speed Caker!
Captain America Cake
What do you say about Captain America?
To the Bat Cake!
It’s very possible that Carvel made this cake. Who am I to judge? If it’s an ice cream cake, I will make an exception and eat it.
Alien Symbiote Spider-Man Cake
Venom. How cool is that? Too cool to eat, that’s for sure. Also, cool enough to make it into the Superhero Cake Section even though he’s a villain. That, and there weren’t a whole lot of other villain cakes I tried to find.
Wolverine Claws Cake
Wolverine’s hand bursting through a cake….
Wolverine Cage Match Cake
Is more effective than a caked-up version of Wolverine. Creepy.
Here are a few cool ones from our favorite movies, TV shows, and books.
Aliens Chestburster Cake
However cool this may be, you could not pay me to eat any of it. Who wants themselves depicted as wormy alien creatures? Not this guy. The cake, however? It’s full of a great amount of badassery.
Discworld. Look it up.
Dr. Who Tardis Cake
Harry Potter Cake
Too pretty to eat. Hogwarts from one of those cake shows on TV.
Optimus Prime by one of those awesome cake dudes. Would be a shame to eat it, I think.
Now is the time where we show how geeky we really are.
Atari 2600 Cake
And the kids ask, “What’s that?”
Guitar Hero Cake
Pac Man Cake
Cute idea. These are cupcakes. But again, the kids say, “what’s that?”
The Princess & Mario Wedding Cake
These don’t fit into one of the above categories, but they are awesome nonetheless.
Crab Cake (snicker)
Why make a cake that looks like a crab? Who cares when it turns out this great?
Red Dragon Cake
A variation on the theme. But ever so much cooler.
Hope it’s not beer-flavored!
Rubick’s Cube Cake
It just makes me wonder what type of event this was for. I hope it was for a wedding.
I love that I’m Irish. This is beautiful.
And last, but not nearly least:
It’s got bits of real squid in it, so you know it’s good. Just kidding. But whoa, right?
