Star Wars Gangsta Rap
Lately, I have unintentionally been running across parallels between hip hop and the Star Wars saga. I'm starting to think that there's some deeper, hidden meaning behind this, but I haven't figured out what the hell it is yet. My second post on this blog featured a link to a video with Darth Vader kickin' ass on the wheels of steel. Today, I'm blessing you with a link to Star Wars Gangsta Rap Special Edition: http://www.atomfilms.com/af/content/gangsta_rap_se. The experince is definitely worth the few minutes it will take you to view the film. I don't care if you think rap is dead and Luke Skywalker is gay---watch it anyway. Trust me. You may not realize it now, but you really haven't lived until you've seen and heard Yoda as an MC.
On a much different note, have you always thought that when you were born, you fell out of an apple tree? Well now there's unscientific proof to the contrary. It appears that there are a multitude of different trees that one can fall from---it all depends on the month and day of your birth. Better yet, the type of tree you fell from can explain a whole lot about your personality. This is some seriously baseless psychobabble, but I am intrigued by this whole concept because my tree inexplicably matches my personality rather well. I'm not too into self-disclosure (note the complete and utter lack of info contained in my blogger profile), but I'll tell you this much--- I'm 100% lime tree.
