Why I’ve been MIA – be back soon!

I haven’t been around much these past few months and I apologize for that. Some major life changes, upheavals, and the loss of a dear, dear friend have consumed my time, my thoughts, and my heart. I’ve tried hard to stay active on the social media accounts during this time of sadness and uncertainty and I assure you that I will be back on the blog soon providing my silly perspective on all things nerd. In the meantime, may the Force be with you, live long and prosper, and be kind to your fellow human beings.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens teaser trailer

The most highly anticipated trailer of the year is that of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens:

We now know that the deep resonating voice narrating the trailer is that of Andy Serkis aka Gollum aka King Kong aka Caesar and the lightsaber sound effect at the end is that of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope

Naturally, this brought out some creative spoofs and homages such as this Lego one:

And this one poking fun at Director J.J. Abrams love of lens flares (which, for the record, I’m kind of a fan of):

It was only a matter of time before someone got a tattoo…
