I feel like we may have featured these before, but a little refresher never hurt anybody. (except that one guy who had that one terrible refresher accident) Save the planet and the GFFA by recycling and using the scrap to create Star Wars sculptures. Enjoy the pics over at 1800Recycling.com.
Chewbacca and C-3PO were featured in the June 18th edition of Rhymes with Orange by Hilary B. Price. (Thanks Mitchell!)
Not only is TFN reader Alexander G. a huge Star Wars fan, but he also happens to be a United States Peace Corps Volunteer serving in Thailand. Jugding from the photo above, they sure give their grocery stores fantastic names over there! Click on the pic for the full view. (Thanks Alexander!)
The Wall Street Journal talks financial reform in the real world and how we've seen elements of this story before in the GFFA.
"The entire episode is a reference to Star Wars Episode Five The Empire Strikes Back. The references are:
* Lizzie: "Use the soup" is a refernce to Obi-wan Kenobi telling Luke to use the Force.
* Bus Walkers: AT-AT (Imperial Walkers)
* Numbah 2 and the sled riders: Snowspeeders
* Numbah 1's fighter: X-wing (But the visual resembles more like a Z-95 Headhunter)
* The drivers in the bus walkers: Strom troopers and snow troopers
* Snowball guns: Laser turrets
* The girls wrapping the busses up: harpoons and tow cables used to wrap up the ATs
* Jimmy's tarnsport and dark clothing: the Imperial Super Star Destroyer and symbolism of how Anakin turned into Darth Vader for Padme
* The bomb Nigel used to knock out the bus: The explosive that Luke used to destroy one of the Ats
* Numbuh One and Jimmy's fight: Lightsaber battle between Luke and Vader in Cloud City
Also, the battle in the snow, In which the KND lead the resistance, while The President's minions try to capture them, is very much like the opening of Episode V, when the empire stormed the temporary Rebel HQ on the ice planet Hoth. The only part thats missing is some sort of central command for the KND." (Thanks Diana!)
Daniel Logan recently signed autographs and mingled with fans at ACME Comics & Collectibles in Sioux City, Iowa and you can read all about it at SiouxCityJournal.com. (via SW.com)
Last but not least, the Official Starwars.com Blog has a couple posts that certainly fall in the Star Wars is Everywhere category including Seth Green making Star Wars pancakes and coverage from the Super Shogun Stormtrooper Launch Party.
