IG-88 And The Stooges

They are only $15! They will never be printed again, so get ’em while you can.

Some of the Fancy Bastards and I played a Twitter game Thursday night with the hashtag #StarWarsBands. Fun times were had by all. I came up with the idea for the meme on the way home from picking up dinner that night, jotted a few notes in my phone, then started posting them as soon as I got home. Unbeknownst to me, another Twitterer had started the same meme the night before. Maybe it’s just a constantly perpetuating meme with no beginning or end. Dexie’s Midnight Kessel Runners, Prince And The New Power Converter, and May The Force Be With Uriah Heep! See what I mean?

Feel free to add your own Star Wars Bands in THE COMMENTS, but make sure your idea hasn’t already been done.

Thanks to these Fancy Tweeters who’s contributions made it into this comic: WTFisCLBcartergilsonTheAlucinautDRCrostonHermetic,

    the last one will only be funny to me and one other person in this world. when i'd first heard of Toad the Wet Sprocket, i thought, "what the crap is that, Jabba's snack?"…true story

    • actually, when my friend said, "have you heard of Toad the Wet Sprocket?" and i said something about it being a snack for Jabba…she didn't get it. so never mind, i'm the only person who thinks it's funny.

    & in all honesty I think the one I was most proud of besides Empire Weekend was "She & Han."
