I love you, Hard of Hearing Vader.
I’m totally psyched for A New Hope 3D!

DARTH VADER HOT AIR BALLOON!
I hear that Vader’s just full of hot air now
THIS! I’m saving the hell out of this growth chart and saving it for when Elizabeth and I have childrenage.
I would have assumed Frodo and R2-D2 were basically the same height. Now I know better.
My daughter is turning one soon, and I decided we needed a growth chart as awesome as she is. After a bit of tinkering in Pages, and a bunch of hemming and hawing, this is the result. As a friend pointed out, all that’s missing is Batman.

Must. Resist. Damn you, Teefury.
This is peanut butter and chocolate with almonds and you get to eat it while hanging out with a baby sloth.

Darth Vader! ON MY TOAST!
We tried to come up with some toast-centric versions of Vader lines, but all we came up with was “Toast, I am your father.” That’s from Elizabeth. We need more coffee.
Updated with some lines via Twitter & Tumblr:
@ToplessRobot & @jaelmchenry - “I find your lack of jam…disturbing.”
@Haunt1013 - “The marmalade is strong with this one.”
@JAFlanagan - “You’re more toast than bread now, Darth. Darkened and crispy.”
@ToplessRobot - “You don’t know the power of the dark setting.”
@WonderAli - “I find your lack of toast disturbing.”
@Rawrnosaurous - “You don’t know the power of the dark side.”
@bobbynash - “May The Toast Be With You.”
@abigvictory & @mattsingley - “I find your lack of butter disturbing”
@jmbeyma - “Don’t butter me again, Admiral.”

The Vader Project 2010. I actually gasped in excitement.
The Vader Project 2010
This summer, The Vader Project launches the final chapter of its four-year art odyssey. The iconic collection features 100 Darth Vader Helmets re-imagined by today’s most notable artists. Completing its epic world tour, The Vader Project returns to Los Angeles in June for a special ten-day exhibition in Hollywood as a preview to the upcoming Freeman’s Auction in Philadelphia.
The Los Angeles Preview Exhibition is free to the public with an opening reception on June 11 from 6-10pm. On June 12, the space will present a catalog signing event with over 20 participating artists in attendance beginning at 2pm on June 12. The Los Angeles Preview Exhibition will be open June 12-20 daily from Noon to 6pm.
In July, The Vader Project travels to Freeman’s Auctioneers and Appraisers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for the final opportunity to view the helmets in person before they are sold at auction. “The result is astounding” said Simeon Lipman, Pop Culture Specialist at Freeman’s. “The sale will give members of the public the chance to purchase unique artworks made from these iconic symbols of the movie industry by a number of well known artists including Shag, Marc Ecko, Tim Biskup, Frank Kozik and many more.”
The Freeman’s Auction will take place July 10, 2010 at Freeman’s Auction House in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania preceded by a 5-day exhibition there July 5-9.
Collectors and art connoisseurs worldwide will have the opportunity to bid online at Freeman’s website. Most bidding will begin at $1,500. For more information about how to participate in the auction, please visit “How to Buy at Auction” at www.freemansauction.com/buying.asp.
Curated and produced by Dov Kelemer and Sarah Jo Marks of DKE Toys, The Vader Project features 100 of the best underground artists and designers working today. “From a simple idea in 2005 to a record-setting exhibition in 2009, it’s time for our child to venture forth into the world,” Kelemer and Marks said. “We are pleased to have partnered with Freeman’s to make these fine pieces of art available to the public for the first time.”
I wish I was in Philadelphia for this when it happens. - Jon
