Patrick Cassels’ ill-conceived junior high love letter. Because nothing pulls at the heartstrings of your average teenage girl like talk of Boba Fett and S-Dub canon.

Fanboys are powerful. Yeah, I’ve seen the heaps of Slave Leia merchandise, too.

Fanboys a force in Hollywood, says Time. “Though there are some fangirls,” huh? Nice.
There are larger issues at work here, of course: Do ‘alpha fans’ really have power? Should they (we?) have power? And what about overpronounced backlash ala ‘Jar-Jar raped my childhood?’ Time certainly isn’t breaking new ground or going in-depth with the issue, but I can’t help wondering when someone is going to bother to address the obvious gender divide in fandom. Because, hi, we’re here too. And that doesn’t mean we’re all making pink websites or mooning over the geekthrob du jour.

Breast. Way to break those stereotypes, fanboys.

The Onion’s ‘Tony Waltman’ is no Larry Groznic, but one can gather from “Don’t Tell Me You’ve Never Wondered What Yoda’s Penis Looks Like” that they may have waited in the same line more than once. (Thanks, Beth!)

Boston conventions have a Hygiene Ninja. Okay, yes, the link is a wank report about how the Hygiene Ninja offended someone, but still. The Hygiene Ninja. Think we can get him or her to come to GenCon? Pretty please?

Bantam/Dark Horse invasion storyline. Sue Rostoni denied it at starwars.com a week or so ago (see the article’s talk page) as did Shelley Shapiro back in 2003 and Randy Stradley in a recent interview with TFN but as we all know, fandom loves a conspiracy theory.
