Vanity Fair and Vader

So the article I wrote about my interview with Vanity Fair contributing editor Jim Windolf is up on StarWars.com.

Windolf interviewed George Lucas in this month's issue of Vanity Fair about his thoughts on Vader (like the fact that he's not a monster, just a sad, pathetic guy who wanted to keep the people he loved from dying but had to make a deal with the devil to do it...and lost) as well as his thoughts on life after Star Wars.

I'm pretty proud of it, and since we don't do bylines on starwars.com I'm vain enough to draw attention to it here on LiveJournal. ;-)

Let me know what you think of it.

New Year's Resolutions for 2005

This year I'm going to be healthier, creative and much more productive I swear!
Here ya go:

New Year's Resolutions for 2005
-----------------------------------

1. Finish writing a screenplay. -- It doesn't have to be brilliant, heck it can even be total crap, but it has to be completed by the end of the year!
2. Write more freelance articles -- for the magazines BUST, Organic Gardening, Giant Robot, and Readymade.
3. Stop falling behind at work. -- Meet those deadlines -- there's a reason why "dead" is in the word.
4. Move to a better living situation. -- That means no more living in a cramped apartment next to a park filled with crackheads or having to deal with psycho neighbors. I also want be in a safe enough hood where I never have to call the cops.
5. Save money. -- I want to have my savings mean something for a change.
6. Clean out the clutter. -- Twice this year I want to do a huge purge of stuff I don't need or use.
7. Eat better. -- Cut down on soda, sugar, booze and bread. More veggies, fruits and WATER.
8. Exercise DAILY! -- Go to the gym every week day, no matter what.
9. Finish craft projects and give them as gifts. -- If you get a portrait of you done with lima beans, this is why.
10. Read more. -- I have a huge stack of fiction and non-fiction books that I keep meaning to read but haven't yet. Before I buy any more books from my huge Amazon wishlist, I think I better start paying attention to the books I already own!
11. RELAX. -- I tend to stress quite a bit, so I want to work on meditation, stress management and regular appointments with a masseuse (even if it's just for 15 minutes).
