That was my thought as I was browsing over to Lightsabre this evening… They’ve interviewed our own Chris Gereke.
Our good friends over at Star Wars Blog have captured some great pictures of Club Jade’s very own Rogue and Caitlin in their Star Wars costumes from Comic-Con.
Their entry in the Masquerade featured a send-up of DreamGirls called Rebel Dreams that won Lucasfilm’s Industry Award.
Coming at you from the fifth floor of the Westin Bonaventure in Los Angeles… Jaders. There are currently ten of us, four laptops, and our first internet access in days. It has been, full stop, In. Sane. We’re all crazy busy and there’s so much to do!
Yesterday? We served six thousand pieces of cake. Yes, I have pictures.
Today? It’s a blur. Tomorrow? Who knows? For now? Check out the Celebration blog and Flickr from StarWars.com, because this is the only internet I’m likely to get.
For now, I only have one suggestion for Celebration V: Free wifi in the Fan Club Lounge.
The official announcement of CJ’s Dan Hamman & James Floyd’s Kessel Run puzzle race went up tonight. Dan has long been CJ’s unofficial Game Master, and I have no doubts this will be awesome, so sign up now!
Also, new postcards on the CIV site.
It’s Helen! The book she co-authored, The New Essential Guide to Alien Species, comes out at the end of October.
Our own Caitlin (as Elizabeth) and Rogue (as Barbossa) in the award-winning Pirates of the Caribbean Masquerade at the San Deigo Comic-Con. Shiny!
I polled a number of CJers on the releases of 2005 and here are the results:
Revenge of the Sith came out on top with 45.5% of the vote. Serenity made a strong show for second place with 40.9%, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was third with 27.3%.
Best Fan Parody
No surprise here: it was the Star Wars Trilogy: Musical Edition that captured the majority vote with 61.9%. In second place, the comic I <3th Darth.
Best Star Wars Fiction
Matt Stover’s Revenge of the Sith novelization was the clear winner with 81.0%.
Best SW nonfiction/reference
With 66.7%, Dressing a Galaxy was our favorite non-fiction publication.
Best genre TV
I admit I slipped up here, forgetting to include at least two shows (Stargate and Stargate:Atlantis) so the majority vote was a tie between Battlestar Galactica and ‘Other’. D’oh.
This completely unscientific poll is still open for members.
