- Mashups: Spencer Brinkerhoff III has replaced our regular Wookiee sidekick (and friends) with Domo Kun. Meanwhile, Bonnie interviews Chris McVeigh about those chipmunk/action figure shots.
- Exhibits: For once, something in my neck of the woods! The Henry Ford (just outside Detroit) is hosting “Out of This World: Extraordinary Costumes from Film and Television” through January. A couple Star Wars costumes aren’t that much, but hey, it’s Michigan: We’ll take what we can get.
- Video: Deadbolt has gathered ten interviews with Star Wars stars dating from the 70’s to today.
- 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.
