Whether you are looking for sage advice on how to start a Star Wars website of your own, or would simply like the opportunity to interact with fans and maybe find a new fan […]

  • Marching with the Maker: A 501st Legion Reflection

    The recent holidays brought back some very special Star Wars memories to me. It was only six years ago on a cold New Year’s morning that over 200 armored men and women were gathered outside a hotel in Pasadena, clustered in squads that waited anxiously as large tour buses came and went like Imperial shuttles to take them away for a very special mission. That was the year George Lucas was named grand marshal of the Tournament of Roses Parade. And he had made it clear from the very start what he wanted as grand marshal. He wanted Imperial Stormtroopers […]

  • Call for Star Wars Commercial By Fans, for Fans

    If you haven’t heard, this fall we’re getting Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith released back-to-back, in glorious 3D. As part of that release, Lucasfilm has joined Forces (sorry, inevitable) with Pringles to help promote the release of both films and everyone’s favorite snack. Now, I know what you’re thinking: cross-promotional marketing opportunity, Madison Ave., eyes rolling back, snarky Tweet… But hang on and give me 500 words to explain why this is exactly NOT that, and actually a very smart and innovative way to bring some new energy to advertising and create a serious opportunity for […]

  • Hang On to Your Helmet — The Holidays Are Over!

    For roughly the past month it’s been the same: “We can rethink that floorplan after the holidays.” “I can have the answers you need after the holidays.” “We’ll send those links after the holidays.” “After the holidays we’ll be ready to revisit this.” “The document will be completed for you after the holidays.” Etc. etc. etc. “after the holidays.” Honestly, it’s a good tradition that people in the world disconnect and focus on something other than work for a few weeks each winter. Family, friends, travel, avoiding cliffs, a few good books and movies — whatever it is that refuels […]

  • Holidays On Ice

    December 25th – provided that the world has not ended per the Mayan calendar – I’ll be flying to Hoth. More specifically, I’ll be flying to Cordova, Alaska for the holidays, where I used to live before I came to work at Lucasfilm. It will be dark and cold and icy, and some of my dearest friends will be there. Somehow my Alaska friends carry on at full speed no matter how far the mercury drops down or the snow piles up. I used to be president of ye old Star Wars Online Fan Club when I lived there – […]
