These lightsaber toothbrushes from Gum come complete with LED lights to light up the ‘blade’ and make sure your padawan brushes for at least a full minute. Of course.

Untruths! An article about Jake Lloyd has been floating around in which claims he called his post-Star War childhood a “living hell.” Lloyd took to Facebook on Sunday to deny it: “The quotes in the article do not accurately reflect my feelings for the time I spent on Star Wars or the time I spent in high school.” The article says the quotes came from “a magazine” and also attributes comments from his mother to a (defunct) domain similar to Sci Fi Channel Australia, which did do an interview with Lloyd (though not his mother) in 2009.
Culture. In The New York Times, Matt Richtel takes a look at how Star Wars is still captivating kids. (Did no one tell him about The Clone Wars, which doesn’t get a single mention?) Last week in the NYT: The New York Jedi. Pity about the headline fail. (Jedi is the plural. Tell your copy editors.)
Randomly… Actor Topher Grace (That 70′s Show) edited all three prequels into one 85-minute film. The cut was shown only to “a private gathering of Topher’s industry friends.” There are no plans to show or release it publicly – Grace refuses to do so without permission, which seems unlikely.

David Allen Canterbury, the man who attacked customers with lightsabers at an Oregon Toys R Us, has been sentenced to 45 days in jail and a mental health evaluation that could lead to treatment. He pleaded no contest to charges of fourth-degree assault and resisting arrest, while the judge dismissed charges of of interfering with a police officer, theft and disorderly conduct.
Canterbury has a previous conviction for possession of heroin.

Joining the latest parade of Phantom Menace tie-ins is Gogurt, which is packaging their yogurt in glow-in-the-dark lightsaber packaging. Neat, sure. Until you get to the part where they call it a ‘Slurp Saber,’ at which everyone with a remotely dirty mind facepalms their brains out. Way to go, marketing geniuses!

Since it is the appropriate season for an action sequence, Santa Maul heartily endorses this video.
