Looks like we started the new year in true MITC style by failing to even get through the first month with consistent episodes. Sure, maybe Robert was practically dying, but he could have fought through the sickness and manned up to record! Alas, We are returnededed this week, mostly healthy and super-amped to bring you a brand new episode! Join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as they delve into the world of fever-dreams, Stormtroopers, and bullshit phrasology (totally a word). Pack your ears with cotton, because they might actually bleed this time as you listen to a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!

I truly had every intention to actually produce some sort of original content for the site this week then I saw this and I just HAD to share it. Artist, Denis Medri, has taken George Lucas’ Star Wars characters and stuck them smack dab in the middle of a John Hughes movies… or Back to the Future as in the case of Luke. When I saw these it blew my mind, what a clever spin on characters that every geek has seen a thousand times!
After a little looking around his Deviant Art page I saw that this isn’t the first time Mr. Medri has taken beloved characters and completely re-imagined them. He’s taken the Justice League and made them western, Spider-man as Steampunk, Rockabilly Batman characters, and his take on The Avengers in a fantasy setting! Fantastic stuff. Take a look around his page, you won’t be disappointed.
Now though check out the rest of the Star Wars crew.
