C2E2 Celebrity Interview of My Dreams

Well, C2E2 is less than a week away, and I’m excited. Although I’ve been working in TV longer than I’ve been going to conventions, I’ve never attempted to get press access to any of these events until now. I guess it’s because I always use vacation time to go to cons, and no one wants... Read more »

Star Wars Sitcom?

Can spin-offs be as good as the original? Monday Lucasfilms announced that they were developing a Star Wars animated sitcom. When I heard the news it sounded like some kind of joke.

Tattoos are everywhere…if you don’t have one (or several), I’m sure you know someone who does. Everyone is branding their bodies... Read more »

Star Wars Parody Music Videos

Boba Fett from “Galactic Empire State of Mind” (CollegeHumor.com) Thanks to all my nerdy friends who post videos and share links with me, I watch a good number of entertaining parody videos.
