If you only knew the power of the Darth Side

The Darth Side: Memoirs of a Monster. Vader blogs from under the helmet. Best read out loud in a tinny James Earl Jones voice with mechanized breathing. First post is here. (Historian's note: the blog starts shortly before Empire Strikes Back, and his current entry is written during the storming of Hoth.)

"Tomorrow I may strangle General Veers." and "And do you know who else was with them? C-3P0!Talk about a blast from the past!"

Heh - quality :-)

I hope that nobody jumps on the bandwagon, and does a Yoda-blog, or JJB-blog...

This doesn't really read like it's the voice of Vader to me. Also, the comments rather spoil the mood.


"P.S. Remember when you dog died? That was me.

Sincerely,

D. Vader"

"The probe droids have detected an illegal settlement.

Mood: optimistastic!"



Funny stuff for geeks.

I admit, I laughed at the 419 scam letter in the comments.

I'm amazed it took this long for someone to do a fake Darth Vader blog.

Me too, gnomeloaf. Then I looked around guiltily, but nobody else is here. :)

I would like to tell you a little story. This goes out to all those bleeding heart hippies out there who sympathize with the rebellion.

heh.

Starts off too serious, IMO. The latter entries are gold.

(Most people don't know this but His Excellency designs all of our outerwear personally; he has a real flair for geometry, and a great sense of line.)

Impressive. Most impressive.

I see you have constructed a new Movable Type site.

Your blog skills are complete. Indeed, you are powerful, as the Emperor has LJed. ;}

Question: do you want a moment of agony, or an entire history of ache?

That is the spirit that underlies the New Order. Understand this, and live in peace.


Very Miltonesque.
