Etsy scavenger: I find your Star Wars bathroom set… Kind of awesome, actually

Of all the things I’ve come to expect on Etsy, a complete bathroom theme set has to be the most surprising… Yet completely natural. The only thing I should really be shocked at is that they haven’t apparently made a liscensed one yet. (Or have they?)

We’ve seen bedroom gear and dishware (The Phantom Menace ones were better) but bathroom products? Suddenly I’m seeing a new use for my Darth Vader pimp cup. [Vintage Star Wars Bath Sets by Greatful Thread, $165.]

Home Cinema Heaven

I was thrilled when we could finally replace our old television that we left by a dumpster with one that has all of its colors and doesn’t unexpectedly change channels. The owners of these amazing geek chic home cinemas apparently have far higher standards in mind for their media viewing experience. Especially impressive is “The Bridge” that one guy actually built by himself. DIY insanity!

A night for lists

IMAGE: LandoEntertainment Weekly celebrates sexy aliens, with our own Lando Calrissian clocking it at at #4. (Yes ladies, a fair amount of menfolk make the list, which is nice.) Slightly less innocent is New York Magazine’s ten movie vaginas even scarier than the one in Teeth, which ‘graciously’ includes the Sarlacc pit at #1. Whoo. (Our Google referrals are sure to get even weirder now.)

Meanwhile, for the folks not in the mood to oogle or wince, take a gander at Deputydog’s ten stunning ultra-geeky home cinemas. While many of the home theaters profiled are familiar, there’s plenty of brand-new ones to discover (or rediscover.)

Indy IV rated most anticipated movie and more…

A little round-up from the land of the bullwhip and fedora:

  • Movietickets.com reports that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is the most anticipated film to come out in the next twelve months. It tops the list for both men and women. Read more on cnn.com
  • StarWars.com continues their tour of the Young Indiana Jones Volume 1 DVD set: Disc 5 contains 7 documentaries connecting to the episode, Perils of Cupid about Puccini, Freud and the Balkan Powder Keg. Disc 6 contains the episode, Travels with Father, where young Indy meets up with Leo Tolstoy in Russia and Nikos Kazantzakis in Greece, with extras on Russian writers and Greek philosophy. Also, an interview with Lloyd Owen, who portrayed Henry Jones, Sr. (before he grew into Sean Connery)
  • Someone’s got an Indiana Jones-inspired home theater system? Instead of an ark, the TV’s in the Well of Souls! Cables? I hate cables!
  • MTV.com interviews Cate Blanchett on her upcoming movies, including Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which apparently is just a big bar of chocolate. But is it dark chocolate?
  • Slashfilm.com get a chance to talk to Steven Spielberg on the Indy IV set.

Star Wars roundup: Yippie ki-yay

George Lucas attends Salesforce.com user conference and gives keynote, talking about education and technology. The company has registered force.com. Forget Lucas – what does Philip Wise think?
