R2

Thanks George

Since this is a BIG AD for a store and not really a big thankyou:
http://www.thankyougeorge.com/

I'm making My Own "Legit" Thank You List to George:

  • Thanks for hiring me when I'm not even an uber fan and I spelled Wookiee wrong for the first three months I got the gig. And of course, thanks for hiring a girl.
  • Thanks for not firing me when I cut in line in front of you in the cafeteria to get more tartar sauce....then made fun of salad eaters, and then realized YOU were eating salad.
  • Thanks for letting us have a webcam on the set so we could all spy on you as you worked.
  • Thanks for having a sense of humor.
  • Thanks for being a normal guy without the "I'm a big time director" attitude.
  • Thanks for the company picnic....the Holiday parties... and the Yoda statue in the courtyard.
  • Thanks for having us move to the Presidio so I don't have to cross Golden Gate Bridge twice a day anymore.
  • Oh yeah, and thanks for the Star Wars movies, Indiana Jones , THX1138 , heck... even Howard the Duck.

Return of the Ewok



If you're a paying Hyperspace member on starwars.com, (if not perhaps you should be -- *ahem*) be sure to check out this home movie Return of the Ewok made by Warwick Davis (Wicket the Ewok) as he was on the set filming Return of the Jedi.

It's a rather sweet tale of a little boy's quest to be an Ewok in a Star Wars film, complete with footage of Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher in that golden metal bikini you lads love oh so much. I'm partial to Han Solo carrying his coffee cup around the hallway. ;-)

It's not a great version of the film since the only copy Warwick has is in PAL format, but it's the cleanest one you'll find on the Web, and it's pretty dang cool.
