Yup.  He’s wearing a Darth Vader costume and a kilt while riding a unicycle and playing the bag pipes with fire coming out of it.

But as Andrew Coulson noted: “Vader would never wear short sleeves. How inauthentic!”

A belated May the 4th to everyone.

    The Austin American Statesman did an analysis of Census data years ago and found that Austin was drawing in more people and more high income people from other major cities, and losing fewer people and lower income people to those other cities.

    The lone exception was Portland Oregon.

    When I spent a delightful weekend there a few years ago, it was obvious to me why within about 30 minutes of hanging out in downtown. The place looked like Logan’s Run in the sense that everyone over 30 was gone. Everyone either had tats or piercings or (preferably) both.

    I recall saying to myself “this place is STRONG with the Hippie side of the Force.” Flaming unicycle bagpipe Vader is just icing on the cake.
