  Dark side of the Force - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
Throughout galactic history, the most infamous users of the dark side were the assorted and most powerful iterations of the Sith with a bevy of talents impossible for the Jedi to duplicate.
Some knowledge of the dark side existed before the Jedi in the Infinite Empire, an ancient civilization that utilized dark side imbued technology that was later reverse engineered to create the basis of technologies such as hyperdrive.
This sometimes led to the belief that the light side was passive, as it favored contemplation and careful action, for the dark side was known to act quickly and sometimes recklessly upon emotions and impulses.

  Dark side - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In various theories of magic and religion, the Dark Side describes the less benevolent approaches to use of the magical forces.
Many people today often affiliate the dark side as their evil twin-the side of them that wants to rebel against the boring routines of life, the side of them that doesn't want to care, and just do what they want, when they want.
In contrast to these, the Sith philosophy of Star Wars is treated as excessive in its commitment to "the Dark Side of the Force", and makes it the enemy of the Jedi, but the opposing Jedi philosophy advocates balance between those two sides rather than declaring the Dark Side inherently evil.

 Dark Side Elite - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
The Dark Side Elite, also known as the Dark Side Warriors and unofficially as the Emperor's Dark Jedi, was a body of seven Dark Jedi established by Palpatine during his return in several clone bodies.
When a Dark Side Adept was selected into the brotherhood, they went through an initiation of sorts in which the adept was empowered with the dark side by Palpatine himself.
As the war accelerated, the Dark Side Elite began to take a more personal role in the war and were tasked with hunting down Luke Skywalker to prevent his interference in the Emperor's plans.

 Dark side - Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Usually, dark sides are accompanied by shadows, but in the case of the Earth, no shadow has been found yet.
Dark sides are deities in the Sith religion, servants of the supreme deity of the Force (which they share with the Jedi).
However, the Jedi fear dark sides, as they believe that their affinity with the Force depends on the midi-chloroplasts and the Force itself consists of some mythical particles called photons.

 Pink Floyd - Dark Side of The Moon SACD review on AudioRevolution.com
Dark Side of the Moon, when considered as a piece of art, was always intended for higher consciousness listening.
In comparison to the CDs I have of Dark Side, it is consistent, but it doesn’t show the same audio improvement that I heard on the SACD surround mix on other parts of the record.
More evident than on the CD mix of Dark Side is the spoken word vocal saying, “There is no dark side of the moon.” I had never really paid attention to this line during the previous thousands of times I have heard the record.

Dark Side of the Moon, originally released in 1973, is one of those albums that is discovered anew by each generation of rock listeners.
Dark Side of the Moon was the ONE ALBUM that every rock fan (and many wouldn't otherwise be caught dead listening to rock music) had to own.
Dark Side Of The Moon observes the world in a madman's peculiar way that most people can't, won't, or don't have time to, then records these observations in a reflective manner that leaves us to say, "Yeah, I never really looked at it that way".

 CD Baby: DARK SIDE: Odd Fellows On An Even Day
Dark Side bring sources as different as Alice Cooper, rockabilly, Springsteen and the Bonzo Dog Band: old-wave rock with incipient signs of modern weirdness and an up-to-date sensibility.
Dark Side remained true to a music that was stripped down and driving, yet capable of an emotional subtlety not usually associated with bands of their ilk.
On June 5, 2004 Dark Side (with honorary members Gyro on bass and Johnny Cochran on keyboards) performed as one of ten finalists in the Washington, DC edition of Little Steven's Underground Garage Battle of the Bands.

Persevere long enough to reach the final EGO on the moon's dark side, though, and your distant homeland might just survive...

Dark Side is an extremely captivating game, and after playing for only a short while it's possible to become totally absorbed in the proceedings.

The dark side is most especially politicians who campaign for limited government and then vote for bigger government, increased taxes and reductions in civil liberties.
The dark side does include bureaucrats and functionaries who are driven by their lust for power into expanding and nurturing big government.
Unfortunately, we see the dark side all too often in government, but this is the brilliance of Lucas to capitalize on real life in order make science fiction meaningful to a mass audience.

This is, after all, ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ — thirty years old, fifteen years on the U.S. Billboard album chart, a pioneer “concept album” from a band known for avant-garde prowess in, frankly, more na├»ve times.

I played through the game on the dark side and am about to go in the ruin in dantoinne(?) on th light side and find your a whole lot weaker in the force power section.
Light side for me. It's nice to tear up a military base, destroy equipment for millions of credits, leave nothing alive inside, and then loot the place for everything that isn't nailed down, and then still be the "good guy".

 Dark Side of the Rainbow | Synchronicity Arkive   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
First put in cd, tape, or record of Dark Side of the Moon that you're going to use; generally this is easiest with cd, but if you're "slumming" it, it is possible to do it with other media (although considerably more difficult).
As you may have noticed, Dark Side of the Moon is not as long as The Wizard Of Oz.
When I first heard about Dark Side of the Rainbow, the recommended instructions for viewing it were to put in Pink Floyd's Animals (1977) album when Dark Side of the Moon ends and let the album play all the way through.

I was so impressed by it, that those 2 minutes from the presentation stayed in my mind ever since, and all that i remember from the day i went to see ET, was that i watched 2 minutes of something that i never thought it existed or would be possible.
Because DARK CRYSTAL is a masterpiece, it might have its flaws, but that doesn´t prevent it from being one of the greatest fantasy movies ever.
I have read that DARK CRYSTAL, was a comercial flop, because it was released during the ET days, and not many people went to see it.

 Jedi Counseling 48: Dark Side Points 2
So, to me, that means that if a character uses all of her Force Points for Dark Side skills to commit evil acts, bringing her down to zero Force Points, she can't call on the Force again until she gains another Force Point.
Some folks seem to have a hard time wrapping their minds around the concept, but using the Dark Side is not supposed to be a wise idea.
But if you don't want the lure of the dark side to be a big factor in your campaign, feel free to overlook such minor transgressions.

 Jedi Counseling 25: Dark Side Downside
They want to use the dark side skills and be evil, but the penalties are harsh and it seems out-of-character to do something heroic to stave off DSP accumulation when they have no interest in being heroic.
However, if you want your players' characters to use dark side abilities, but you don't want them to rack up DSPs so fast, you could award them DSPs only for the first time they use the dark side abilities, and not again for the same skill until they beat their last die roll.
But when you add in all of the light side skills that appear in the Power of the Jedi Sourcebook, the decision to embrace the dark side becomes a little less easy.

Several years ago a rumor began to circulate about a strange connection between Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon (1973) and the MGM classic film The Wizard of Oz (1939).
The origins of this rumor are obscure, but a few websites had appeared and discussion groups had been exchanging information about the connection between Dark Side of the Moon and The Wizard of Oz a number of years before the mainstream press reported the story in 1997.
That would be so convoluted a way of making a record." (5) Alan Parsons, who was the engineer on Dark Side of the Moon, said that no one in the band had discussed The Wizard of Oz while they were making the album.
