Believe it or not, Star Wars does exist outside of E3 this week. While our E3 coverage has been fun (and continues), Star Wars is Everywhere looks to catch you up on some random non-Star Wars video game related items. Enjoy!
Our veggie carving friend Oki from Japan sent over some images of Star Wars fan/costuming participation in the May 15th Kobe parade. Oki and his friends presented a number of performances for onlookers along the 1.2km parade route. Click on the images above for full views. (Thanks Oki!)

Huffington Post Business Strategist Carol Roth infused a little Star Wars into her informative article titled, "An IPO Is Not a Star Wars Character: What You Need to Know About IPOs."
"LinkedIn did it. Groupon's doing it. Suddenly everyone is talking IPOs. But if you aren't market savvy, you may be more familiar with C-3PO than this hot acronym du jour. Or more likely, you may think you know IPOs, but do you really? Since I have previously worked on IPOs ranging from Aavid Thermal Technologies to the largest franchisee of Papa John's pizza, I thought I would share some basics."
That's about it for the Star Wars references in the article, but you can certainly click here for the full read if you're in a busness kind of mood.
Our friend Will passed along this link to the website of an upcoming indie film titled Flashback, which features a trailer displaying a number of homages to Star Wars. (Thanks Will!)

Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches.

They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
