Don't Come to the Dark Side

18. October 2013 06:02 by jedi1 | 0 Comments

While some people at the U.S. department of defense may daydream about building a Death Star, U.S.A.F. Lt. Col Dan Ward, advises against it. Filled with enough Star Wars movie references to keep any fanboy reading, this well written and thoroughly engaging article explores why such expensive and complex projects should be avoided by the government and, I would argue, by other industries as well.

Carrie Fisher Playboy Magazine

7. October 2013 06:29 by jedi1 | 0 Comments

The feistiest woman in the universe talks about first dates, being rich . . . and why Darth Vader should be called darthy.

Shortly after the release of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Robert Crane caught up with the diminutive daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher at her home in Laurel Canyon. He reports, "Carrie Fisher lives in a log cabin. Really. The only tip-off to her wealth is a Mercedes 450 SL parked in the driveway. Carrie talks fast and loud and doesn't forget the audience for a moment. She takes charge, like Princess Leia, but is much more attractive in person without that costume and the doughnuts on the side of her head." [More]
