You’ve never heard of the Millennium Fusion? Best #StarWars, #EpisodeVII and #SWEU tweets for Feb. 18-24

@kenleyyoung: I was just asked if I could make a fast @Target run. "Fast? I'm in a car that made the last Target run in less than 12 parsecs."

Last week, we all made the Kessel Run, one lost soul sees the light, or at least the proper way to spell ‘Lucasfilm’ and the Oscars were nigh-irrelevant to our interests! (Business as usual, basically.) All this and more below the cut.
