From PC World: Homosexuality “Does Not Exist in Star Wars”:
After a user expressed concern that Bioware had “disallowed” the use of the terms “gay” and “lesbian” on the boards in a thread titled “GLBT discrimination in forums?” a Bioware forum moderator dropped in and posted this:
As I have stated before, these are terms that do not exist in Star Wars.
Kotaku picked that up last night, replying
OK, but…they do, uh, realise that the people actually playing the game do not exist in Star Wars either, right? They’re real people?
…followed by a torrent of comments ranging from the power legitimacy of forum moderators, to the sexual orientation of Chewbacca and C3PO.
What was it Luke said approaching the Death Star… “I have a very bad feeling about this?”
Um, excuse me? Are you really so sure that quote should be attributed to Luke?
From (and via) BoingBoing: Star Wars cupcakes, pool toys and kites, a cheap R2D2 laptop for kids, and the most awesomest homemade Star Wars costumes since I went out on Halloween 1978 as a giant paper mache R2D2.
From Photoshop Disasters: Tatooine’s Best Restaurant, with an extra-romantic double sunset.
From StudiosCentral: Logo unveiled for Star Wars Weekends 2009, and yeah I’m not that bitter that I can’t go this year since the weekends are all during the school year, really I’m not, except that I wish I could be at Matt’s fab shindig during weekend one. But if you’re lucky enough to be going, and especially if you’ve never gone before, please allow me to recommend episode 553 of WDW Today.
Oh, and finally, we have to go back to BoingBoing, for Star Wars considered as an episode of Dallas. Man.
