When in the chronicle of wasted time
I see descriptions of the fairest wights,
And beauty making beautiful old rhyme
In praise of ladies dead and lovely knights,
Then, in the blazon of sweet beauty’s best,
Of hand, of foot, of lip, of eye, of brow,
I see their antique pen would have express’d
Even such a beauty as you master now.
So all their praises are but prophecies
Of this our time, all you prefiguring;
And, for they look’d but with divining eyes,
They had not skill enough your worth to sing:
For we, which now behold these present days,
Had eyes to wonder, but lack tongues to praise.
Although Wu-Tang Clan has made 10
references to Star Wars, Eminem is the one rapper for whom MC stands for
MidiChlorians. Thanks to the Yoda of Rap—that’d be producer Rick Rubin—Marshall
Mathers has grown from a young padawan into a Jedi Knight. His 12 references
mention ewoks that pop Reeboks and cast himself on both sides of the
Force, once as Obi-Wan and many times as Darth Vader.
