Ever wanted to recreate your own piece of Star Wars? Star Wars Uncut is giving you the chance. The project has cut-up George Lucas’ masterpiece into 15-second clips allowing fans to choose up-to-three SW moments which they can remake in any style they wish. 513 of those clips have been taken, but (at the moment of this post) more than 300 are still up for grabs. When the project is finished all the clips will be put together into a new film. You can check out one of these clips below. Thanks to Fork for the find!

wikipedawesome!Not only did Wikipedia rock my world yesterday when I (rather belatedly, I know) discovered its dictionary sister-site (the awesomely named “Wiktionary“), but today Wikipedia proved it was even more awesome-r, as evidenced by this screenshot. Care to guess how?

It ain’t what you think.

lego-gun-shipNow that’s a big gun. Oh, and lookee, there’s a boat underneath!

Who doesn’t love LEGOs? Commies that’s who! Seriously though, The Brothers Brick is a damn fine LEGO fan site. Besides the sweet gunship you see here the site also showcases plenty of LEGO-goodness including a Star Wars LEGO Chessboard, one cool ass tank, robots, and so much more. Take a minute or two and peruse their site. I think you’ll be glad you did.

Now, where did I put my LEGOs?

toyota-logoThis one’s for Toyota owners looking for information on modifications to their cars. ToyotaModifications covers everything from the simple (reverse hood, mirror paint-job, custom gages), to the odd (Ferrari doors, angel eye headlights, floating trunk), to the absurdly awesome (smokescreen, flame thrower, and even transforming into a robot).

billy idol wedding singerThey say all actors want to be rock stars and vice versa. There are a select few who are able to do both, but for the most part, we don’t want musicians in our movies and we don’t want our movie stars on our stages. That’s why the rock star cameo is a fun and harmless little way for our favorite rockers to appear for a short time (sometimes as themselves) and disappear before they can do any real harm to the movie. Many times, the rock star cameo sounds way cooler on paper (Keith Richards as Jack Sparrow’s daddy “Pirate,” for example) or just plain fizzles out (Neil Diamond in “Saving Silverman”).

This list is proof that there is a way, however, to have rock star cameos that actually … well … rock. I know I missed some, so please leave comments below! If you have an idea for a Top 10, email me at eric@scene-stealers.com. Click here to see the Top 10 Rock Star Movie Cameos.

Infinite Monkey Comics takes a random image from Flickr, a tweet from twitter, and mashes them together to create a random generated comic. It still needs some fine-tuning, and the search isn’t as broad as I’d like, but the concept has some possibilities. Here’s what I got when I searched for “Gobots.”

Labelscar – the Mall Blog

kyova-mall-05If you’re like me, and, well okay, you’re probably not like me; but if you are, you’ll love the Mall documenting blog Labelscar. The Blog, run by a couple of dudes criss-crossing the nation, writes up a short piece on malls – mostly dead ones – around the country that includes its history and photos.

Sounds weird, but if nothing else it can be appreciated as a reflection of American consumerism. The dead malls that used to be packed with shoppers and name-brand logos are barely occupied if at all anymore, usually for petty reasons like it’s slightly out-dated decor; adding a sense of mortality to the ones one that are thriving.

Now that I’m done trying to sound smart and analytical about the American economy, Transbuddha will shortly return to its regularly scheduled programming of Venezuelan disco sex music and other assorted garbage.

I found this completely by accident, and knowing there’s more than a couple Star Wars nerds about the place I thought I’d share:
