Crackerjack Junction sings the original Ewok song. Yub nub!
Yes, it’s Boba Fett. Yes, it’s hilarious. Take your passion, make it happen!
A fanmade Lego animation of his Death Star Canteen bit, and, below the cut, his musings on Brits in Star Wars from Dress to Kill.
The argument against ‘canon.’ On The Mary Sue, April Daniels argues that the concept actually does fandom, properties and stories more harm than good.
Well, it’s been a while, but it finally happened: There were a ton of Expanded Universe tweets last week. Of course, it was because they’re no longer canon, so… Yeah.
two three cons this weekend; WonderCon in Anaheim, AwesomeCon in D.C. and Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Xperience in, you know. Salt Lake. You may remember we got some Rebels news at WonderCon. As for the rest? What minor Star Wars character’s name sounds like a sex position? Head below the cut to find out. (Or not.)
Within: Some Episode VII and Expanded Universe chatter, that whole Wookieepedia thing, some nerfs, and ponderings of all sorts.
Alas, change does not happen overnight, at least not when you’re going up against some spectacularly stubborn fanboys. The page’s existence is still up for a vote and a complaint about Darth Culator’s behavior in light of our piece seems to be more or less ignored.
While several of us had some objections with Mike Cooper’s orignal follow-up on the piece, he does have some suggestions today on ways to ‘contribute’ to Wookieepedia’s much-touted attention to pointless detail. I’m not sure it’ll actually do any good in the long run, but it can’t exactly hurt.
In conclusion, a few points from the 2007 vote that ended in an ‘insufficient consensus’ to delete.
…Keeping this article just plays to the worst sort of fanboy stereotype and I don’t think it’s worth the hassles. – Valin Kenobi
Wookieepedia is primarily a resource for people to find out information about Star Wars, yes? If I was thinking “hmmm, who is this Baron Fel guy that everyone keeps talking about?” I could look him up on Wookieepedia. I could read the links in his article and learn all about him, what he’s associated with, and the books he appeared in. Would I ever, though, think to myself “Hmm, what are breasts? To Wookieepedia!” ? Never. – GrandAdmiralJello
As an outsider, if I came across this article, I would basically interpret this article as being evidence of this community’s lack of professionalism and um, ogling fanboyish fanwankery by some members. I can see this now popping up on Chee’s forum over at SW.com “Mr. Chee do breasts have an entry in the Holocron? Because they have an article on Wookieepedia (link).” The eyes would be rolling for the next decade or so. – Atarumaster88
To be honest, I hadn’t planned to write more about Wookieepedia’s page on breasts. I’m already on record as disapproving, twice. Outrage fatigue happens even to the outraged, and quite honestly I don’t have the temperament or patience to continue to explain Feminism 101 to this fandom.
But the page and one of the responses ended up on Tumblr – one of those areas of fandom where you do actually see female majorities in many circles – and I remembered why it’s important that we keep speaking out.
