  • 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 – […]

  • Christmas Troopers: A Little Naughty, Mostly Nice

    There’s something about this time of year that brings out the kid in all of us (which is great, because a guy in Stormtrooper armor isn’t fooling anyone the other eleven months of the year). The holidays are a silly time — one for crazy sweaters, sing-songy music, and wishlists of toys (figurative or literal). But it’s also a time of child-like wonder: seeing the world through new eyes, allowing ourselves to ponder the innocence that mankind is capable of, and being moved by the traditions that came before us. The trick is remembering we can learn a lot from […]

  • The Saga Continues…

    Someone pinch me. I need a confirmation that I’m awake, because recently I read that new Star Wars films are in the works. I don’t remember finding an old lamp and rubbing it, and I don’t think my prayers from when I was 12 years old count, so I’m not sure how exactly my wish got granted for an extension on the single greatest saga ever. But here it is!
