The fandom minute: Mashups, exhibit, interviews

Star Wars in the news: Science, dads, Colin Farrell

Anthony Daniels

  • Exhibits: Where Science Meets Imagination opened in St. Paul this week, so naturally there’s plenty of press (featuring Anthony Daniels) from the locals, like the Star Tribune and KARE 11.

  • Holidays: Sunday is Father’s Day, which means a lot of lip service for The Empire Strikes Back. Watch it with your dad!
  • Random celebrities: Showbiz Ireland makes much ado about some Tatooine-esque getup of Colin Farrell’s. Hey, at least he’s not wearing a bad wig.

Okay, so it’s been a few years since I saw the When Science Meets Imagination exhibit, but does anyone else ever spot a Star Wars poster and a Playboy centerfold in the cockpit of the Tantive IV? Or is it Photoshop? Will we ever know?

The photo is from a collection by Flickr user Women, Fire & Dangerous Things (Note the user icon) from the opening of the exhibit in Philadelphia.
