A dispatch from the mainstream. The Yoda statue at the Presidio is a landmark for Star Wars fans, an Associated Press article says this week. No, really? Other key Star Wars locales, like Tunisia and Lake Como, are also mentioned.
Baseball. The San Francisco Giants are freezing pitcher Brian Wilson (not the Beach Boy) in carbonite for the Star Wars day on September 4th. Wouldn’t it make more sense to freeze the visiting team’s pitcher?
Kara Swisher’s visit to Lucasfilm and ILM. There are people who don’t know who Boba Fett is? Perhaps there is hope for humanity yet. Seriously though, this video offers a good look at some of the movie stuff hanging around the place.
This may be one of those things that everyone but me knows, but I had no clue that the Presidio, in the Star Trek universe, is the home of Starfleet Academy. There’s also a Skywalker Division that builds ships for Starfleet.
