New York Mag Calls Vader Toaster Low Brow AND Brilliant
Words: Bonnie Burton

I've been an avid reader of New York magazine for years. It's part of my Sunday morning ritual to grab a cup of tea and read New York magazine from cover to cover. The magazine features entertaining profiles of characters who could have sauntered into anything from a Woody Allen film to a ripped-from-the-headlines Law & Order episode. (Remember the tourist who got lost on the New York subways for like 3 days before she was found?!)

I like to pretend I understand all the Park Slope inside jokes. I laugh at the food critic's reviews of restaurants that charge more for bacon-encrusted scallops than I make in a month.

But my absolute favorite part of the magazine is The Approval Matrix that divides up their favorite events, gossip, gadgets, news and celebs for the week in an easy-to-read grid.

So when I spotted our Darth Vader Toaster -- which I'm proud to say jumped out my crazy noggin and into your kitchen -- in the BRILLIANT & LOW BROW section of The Approval Matrix, not only did I squeal with joy, I ripped it out and framed it. Seriously, it's now hanging above my desk at Lucasfilm.

Thank you, New York magazine, for making this geek girl's dream come true.
