Lord Vader and Bloggers Wandering the Streets of Seoul

While running around the Myeong-dong shopping district* armed with a new pair of pink and grey Nike athletic shoes, the new Keane "Under the Iron Sea" CD, (because with my new workout routine I've played their "Hopes and Fears" CD out), my new Economic Development textbook and other school supplies, I ran into the Metropolitician who was armed with his camera. Just in case you don't know who he is, he is another expat blogger in Seoul who takes some damn good pictures.

We're both Star Wars dorks and he turned me on to this website which is Darth Vader blogging about his Empire days. It's called The Darth Side. I've only read a bit of it, but so far it's really interesting. However, you've got to be into Star Wars to really care about reading it at length, so, if you are, check it out. I would advise reading it in chronological order.

Also, I'm following the Chad Vader series on Youtube and Episode 3 is out. Again, I think the first installment is the funniest so far, but I'm keeping the faith that maybe Episode 4 will have my laughing just as hard as the first episode did. This one generated a few chuckles. However, I think it's still worth watching just to keep following the story.

For those of you who've not seen Episodes 1 and 2. Just click on the links:

Chad Vader: Night Shift Manager (Episode 3)


Make funny Star Wars references and get linked to me! It's pretty much a done deal as I'm a certified Star Wars dork. John Mayer gets a plus point (because after that Jessica Simpson gossip he needs them): WHO SAYS I CAN'T PLAY SPORTS?

*Just click on the My BlogMap, on the right, to see how close I live to Myeong-dong. I've matured a lot because living that close to a major shopping area with two awesome department stores would have meant I would ALWAYS be shopping. Now I might run wild just once every few weeks. I can go, have coffee and leave without stopping and buying something! I'm telling yah, that's progress for me ;-)

  1. I thought these were hilarious! I actually liked the second one better than the first.

  2. Yeah, I think it's all a matter of personal taste at this point.

    The Darth Side is way too dark or specialized to really hit the mark with everyone ;-)

    Plus, I just woke up in dire need of a sugary drink, so it's time for a glass of grape juice for me...


Hey there! Thanks for visiting my blog. It's my first blog, and I'm glad folks are still stopping by even though I'm no longer living in South Korea. Feel free to comment.
