Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

July 21, 2013 3 comments

My take on WordPress.Com’s ‘Weekly Photo Challenge‘ meme

In a new post specifically for this challenge, share a photo which means FRESH to you!


Star Wars

This is a screenshot of a page from the Quirk Books published William Shakespeare’s Star Wars by Ian Doescher. It’s a really FRESH retelling of Star Wars in iambic pentameter, and it’s AMAZING. When I read an excerpt of this (the ‘These are not the droids you are looking for’ scene), I just had to go and order a copy 🙂

Book Description:

Twenty-five years ago the survivors of the marooned Sith ship Omen bloodlessly conquered the native population of the remote planet Kesh, installing themselves as overlords and transforming the primitive Keshiri civilization into a new Sith society. Letting nothing stand in his way -including his own brother’s life – Omen commander-turned-Grand Lord Yaru Korsin has ruled unopposed ever since. But now his days, and those of the ruthless Sith order on Kesh, may be numbered.

Revolt – and revenge – have been brewing in the hearts of the two women closest to Korsin. One is Adari Vaal, the once-outcast Keshiri who rescued the stranded Sith, aided their domination of Kesh, and now leads the secret resistance against them. The other is Seelah, wife of Korsin, widow of his murdered brother, and mastermind of the plot to assassinate the Grand Lord and seize power.

But have the comforts of a king and his own arrogance blunted Korsin’s cunning Sith instincts? Or is he ready to deal swiftly and mercilessly with treachery from any quarter? Enemies themselves, Adari and Seelah are unaware of each other’s destiny-altering gambits. They only know that there can be no turning back – and no escaping the consequences if they fail.

Cool idea – turn your cell phone into a light sabre

From Graham’s Weblog:

“Well it’s erm a light sabre toy app that when you move you’re phone it goes whummm whummm and when you swing harder it’ll make a hit a hitting noise.”

Okay, probably only 12-year-old boys and Star Wars junkies like me would find this phone application cool (plus, Graham above probably needs a little work on grammar). But wait, reserve your scorn for now and watch the video of this phone application in action first …
