In a Magazine Far, Far Away


Italian magazine Bang Art has a new issue out with a nostalgic article on the Star Wars phenomenon. And if the little six-year-old girl in the "T" of Star Wars who is missing her front teeth and dressed as Princess Leia looks familiar, well, the picture was taken about three decades ago. *ahem*

A PDF of the magazine (issue #2) is available for download here.

Bang article 1

In other news...

* Black Gate: Adventures in Fantasy Literature is now selling PDF versions of the magazine online. (Lovecraft fans should check out the latest issue, which includes tentacled goodness by Peadar Ó Guilín.)

* io9 continues its "Pre-Golden-Age SF" series with "The Mad Mentalists of Pre-Golden-Age SF."

* And, last but not least, via belleferret, your moment of zen.


"I know Darth Vader's really got you annoyed,
But remember: if you kill him, then you'll be unemployed."
- from "Yoda," Weird Al Yankovic

OMGFLAIL! You are QUEEN OF THE GEEK LADIES! Erm... Princess of the Geek Ladies, I mean. :-)

P.S. I think I've broken a rib watching that Joe Cocker thing, thank you VERY much.

LOL, you're a star.

I like the sound of a Plan. Plans are comforting things to have. *hugs!*

LOL!

Thanks. *hugs* Unfortunately, it seems the Plan has turned out to be one of Epic Fail. Back to the drawing board!

That was all kinds of genius! I'd love to read Hurley's improved version, with Luke and Vader talking things out. Dude, Ewoks suck. LOL!

Still praying that your doctor is able to get you back to 100%!

I remember I got my hair cut in the mistaken belief that it would make me look like Han Solo :)

LOL! That's awesome!

The vid left me in hysterics. "Probiotics changed the way I feel now," indeed!

Gotta love Weird Al. I remember all those song parodies about SW that came out when Lucas re-released the OT in theaters.
