Wear Star Wars Every Day: Week 11


Recapping week eleven of #WearStarWarsEveryDay! It’s a week full of shirts, most of them lent by Brian, with one shirt donated by Tricia of Fangirls Going Rogue! Plus, I go out side for a St. Patrick’s Day picture with a friend! This update covers March 11 to March 17 of my wearathon, and an update on fundraising for Collateral Repair Project, a non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance, education, and community support to urban refugees.

TheForce.Net shuts down flagship ForceCast podcast

ForceCastTheForce.net shut down their flagship podcast, the ForceCast, yesterday. The actual announcement from TFN content manager Dustin Roberts is brief, but almost all the background on what led up to it has played out on Twitter and Facebook, with the relevant bits helpfully gathered up by Brian over at Tosche Station.

UPDATE: Ex-manager/host Erik Blythe gave his side of the story in a live Q&A last night. You can listen to that here.

The whole situation is pretty odd, to say the least. The ForceCast had long since ceased to be the podcast for the fandom, but it is certainly the end of an era.

Sadly no donations this week, but if you want to make next week better, how about a Leap Day challenge: just chip in a dollar for each day in February, and you’ll be providing more than one month of food for one refugee!
