Hey, kids -- this is MC-3PO, finally posting something on this damn web site. I feel bad because you're all subjected to C0splay on this bitch, and he's terribly dull.
C0splay has put in a ton of work on this site, and that's awesome, because I think we all knew I wasn't gonna do it. But hey, now I'm here, and I'm updating things -- namely my blog and the new section, "3P Loves Nerd Girls". You should read them, because I am fascinating and there are pictures of Alison Brie over there.
On another note, how fucking awesome is that banner by our very own Death*StArtist, T0mm0d0r3 64? That man can draw! Note the extra-cool Death*Star logo in the center, and our very own D*S font. I feel like the King of the Internet.
In IRL-type news, D*S is inchage-in-the-pants away from finishing the recording of our first album, "The Fandom Menace". With about three tracks left to record and a bit of spit and polish waiting, it's looking like the album may very well be done by Norwescon, which means you fine folks will be able to give us money and receive a 20-track masterwork (or at least a half-assed effort by us) for about $8 US. We will likely post tracks up on Amazon, iTunes, and BandCamp, too, so if you just want it digital, we will totally give it to you digital. I'm more of an analog guy myself, but YMMV.
Stay frosty, Death*Starmy,
I could easily start this column with a well-known hottie like Angelina Jolie or a tried-and-true nerd favorite like Jewel Staite -- and we'll get there, trust me -- but I'm gonna go ahead and roll this right on into where my mind is at the moment. I always dug Trudy on "Mad Men" and thought her character had a lot of sympathetic moments, but it was seeing Alison on "Community" that really won me over and sparked my crush on her. Reading interviews with her has shown me that she's sweet and intelligent (two traits I really dig in a woman -- ladies, take note!), and pretty humble. She's got that great "girl next door" quality about her, with a good-girl smile and bright blue eyes, but let that smile go to a smirk and flutter those eyelashes just a bit and you see that underneath the sunny exterior she's smoldering (check out the Community episode "Debate 109" to see what I mean).
Alison Brie is on two fantastic shows right now, and they honestly couldn't be less similar. On NBC's "Community" she plays Annie Eddison, the bubbly, high-strung overachiever of the group who lacks significantly in real-world experience (despite having once had a serious drug habit that ruined her educational plans). On AMC's "Mad Men" she plays Trudy Campbell, Pete Campbell's level-headed and graceful wife. Two totally different characters -- different enough that most people have trouble believing they're played by the same actress.
The same awesome, beautiful, nerdlicious actress.
Alison Brie, you are beautiful, talented, intelligent, and wonderful. MC-3PO totally has a crush on you.

Death*Star has really been moving forward. As we progress through the next few months we're looking at a party show in February, a couple shows lined up in March, an album release, a convention show in April, some promo shots to be taken of us, and a couple more fun things in the pipe. With all this coming, I'd like to try and keep focus to adding to this site. Right now, send us suggestions! We've just added a link to the left navigation to contact us. Feel free to suggest whatever you like. We're here to entertain you! -- C0splay
Con Air Bud
A marvelous family film where a dog, convicted for killing a criminal while in the line of duty, has spent ten years in prison. On the day of release the very same plane intended to deliver Bud to fredom gets high-jacked by a Russian dog-napping service with plans to sell the prisoners on the canine black market in Siberia. With the help of the flight attendant and his closest prison buddy, coincidentally released on the same day, Bud manages to save the plane and return to his family only to have to play in the finals of the NBA! Six thumbs way up!
Day After Tomorrow Never Dies
Pierce Brosnen fights his most sinister villain yet in this action packed disaster film. How will he outsmart Mother Nature and her frozen surfaces? Can he overcome the ice or will the ice outsmart him? Will his chest hair, plentiful as it is, save him from the impending doom of freezing?
Hard to Kill a Mocking Bird
Steven Segal, known for his masterful style in martial arts and his top quality films, manages to land the best role of his life. In a town where African-Americans are disrespected, mistreated, and mocked Steven Segal manages to overtake the seperatist, bigotted white folk; both in and out of the courtroom. See him protect the guilty-before-proven-innocent ‘Boo Radly’ as portrayed by Rob Schneider in this fantastic book adaptation.
Pitch Black Sheep
The dream has finally come true. David Spade, Chris Farley, and Vin Diesel star in this buddy comedy where a loser brother (Farley) gets sent off on a bounty hunting mission with two others (Spade and Diesel.) With his klutziness and gross obesity the laughter just rolls from the belly out of the mouth. Plus Vin Diesel kills a lot of people and that’s always cool.
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back to the Future
Marty McFly and Luke Skywalker master their Jedi powers and moral compass in this confusing Sci-Fi epic. With a time machine, a girl, another girl, a Wookie, a Bully and a Crazy Doctor that was also a Jedi, following the plot is a bit tiresome; but so was the movie Twelve Monkeys and you all already saw that didn’t you?
I'm trying to make sure we have more fun and more stuff for you to look at, piece by piece. I'll be uploading various things here. Once I find a streaming music player I'll get the audio files on here. Tomorrow we start our album recording. W00t! So below, I give you a random piece of art (not done by me) that I just love. In fact, I'll give you two. Enjoy!
Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventures in Baby Sitting!
Join young, teenage-wasteland influenced Bill and Ted as they baby sit a clan of misfit unruly adventurers through time and space while trying to do a final report via the help of a desperate for work George Carlin.
Jaws: The Revenge of the Nerds
Due to a fraternity challenge the team from Tri-Lam have to once again geek it up; but this time in the ocean. Great conflict appears as they run afoul of a large flesh hungry sea beast known only as JAWS! Crazy antics, danger, and science all come together in this masterpiece which culminates in a triumphant techno finale to defeat both the man-eating shark and the Alpha-beta jock house. Make sure to enjoy this victorious telling of dorkish underdogs overcoming great obstacles.
Chris Rock stars as the wise cracking funny man Malcolm X. After being exposed to gamma radiation in 1961, Malcolm finds himself not only an activist leader for the black community but also having super-human abilities. See him team up with favorites such as Wolverine (played by Rob Schneider) and Rogue (Molly Shannon) in this farcical take on both black civil rights and the X-universe.
Indiana Jones and the Last Star Fighter
Okay, I know the theme of "Movie Mashups" is to create a ridiculous combination of two unrelated movies, but honestly, this movie would be awesome. Any who challenge me will be met with my wrath and my glove in a duel to the deal! You may choose the weapons, the time is high noon.
Little Big League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
A young boy inherits the League after his grandfather dies. The League, comprised of great players from the past such as Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb and some other guy that played around then, go about drinking and beating their wives to fight crime and overcome the cruelty of their greatest foe… Professor Moriarty. Rated R for; violence, sexual themes, and poor scripting.
Death*Star decided we needed at least a somewhat presentable website. We haven't had one yet but we are working on this one. More news, updates, podcasts, art, videos, photos, and all that will be coming soon but for now, allow us some time to get it going!
