Round-up of Star Wars Awesomeness

15 Jan

No matter how dreary this January weather may be in Boston, my blogreader’s almost always got some Star Wars goodies to make me smile, or to provide spiritual guidance.

I’ve never seen a Stormtrooper at Japan’s Coming of Age day…until now. Thank you, BoingBoing!

BoingBoing also pointed me to the video Star Wars: Retold (by someone who hasn’t seen it). I promise you, it’s 3 minutes 42 seconds well spent. And also to the Star Wars Telegraph Toy. Dude.

Happily, the dates for Star Wars Weekends 2009 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are now up at! Sadly, it doesn’t look likely that I’ll make it this year. But that’s no excuse for you to miss the private dinner party Matt Hochberg’s putting together for Weekend One.

    Too bad you can’t make SWW this year, especially for the fun Weekend One event…wouldnt that be the perfect mother-son trip? Besides, the whatchamacallit loves me!

    I wish I could take my six-year old, but I think he might be too young. Too bad, because he pretty much never puts his lightsaber down. He’s turning the younger two into his padawans.

    God, we’re a nerd family.

    Matt, the Watchamacallit does in fact love you! I really wish we could both be there for weekend one.

    Chris, I know that every six year old is different, but for what it’s worth most of the kids in the Jedi Mind Challenge were under 10. Either that or really really really short tweens.
