It’s hump day! Enrich your noodle.
It’s Valentine’s Day! Alas, we’re all pretty tied up here (not a euphemism, pervs) but feel free to check out our past sappy stuff, particularly James’ look at Star Wars Valentine’s Day cards and love in the Expanded Universe.
StarWars.com has a bunch of valentiney stuff as well.
Over at EU Cantina, Nanci takes a look at some of the heart-breaking romances of the Expanded Universe. Includes snarking on Luke’s romantic track record, because that shit is never not funny.
Lane at Roqoo Depot isn’t having any of this romance crap: Instead, he’s looking at bromances in Star Wars. However, I’m pretty sure there’s slash out there about all those dudes. Sorry, Lane.
My Valentine nausea kicked up real hard on this one, but the art is nice, if you’re into the whole Captain Cardboard thing. Have at it, Jag/Jaina fans.
Head on over to Topless Robot to bask in their list of 8 villainous couples. No Star Wars, but I’m sure you’ll recognize a few.
I LOL’ed. Oh, 90’s comics. (via)
Addressing the latest round of the ‘gays in Star Wars‘ controversy last night, Conan O’Brien found some other characters that might benefit.
I’d like to take this opportunity to link (again) Todd Alcott’s post on Darth Vader and Boba Fett in ESB. OTP!
Darth Vader gets the Mad Men treatment in this parody by Dann Matthews. (via)
What if Harrison Ford never actually saw the Indiana Jones films until now? That’s the premise of this video, which mashes up a video of Harrison Ford playing the adventure game Uncharted 3 (filmed for a Japanese commercial for the video game).
The Black List is an annual vote that picks the best unproduced scripts circulating around Hollywood. Among the top vote-getters this year is Evan Susser and Van Robichaux’s ‘Chewie,’ which Movieline describes as “A satirical behind the scenes look at the making of Star Wars through the eyes of Peter Mayhew.”
Previous Black List selections that went on to be filmed include Diablo Cody’s Juno and Aaron Sorkin’s The Social Network.
Starring Darth Vader, of course! (Don’t tell Santa Maul.)
