Trish: Bullied for liking Star Wars...

This is my daughter.  She is in the 3rd grade.  She has been teased for liking Star Wars.  I mentioned it on the message boards over at "Her Universe" and her and I were both delighted with all of the positive and supportive responses we got in return.  Now she is "strong with the force" and doesn't care what those haters think!  I'm sure many of you have seen the article about Katie, the little girl in first grade who is being bullied because of her love of Star Wars.  To read more about her and this issue in particular, check out Bonnie Burton's post on the Star Wars Blog.  Then pass on a little encouragement to Katie and her mom.  We Female Fans must stick together!

Trish: Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame - Seattle, WA

I was in Seattle this past weekend, visiting my BFF, and on my way to the Space Needle, I happened upon this little Museum
 If you are a fan of all things Sci-Fi, this place has it all!  I was very excited to find so many exhibits dedicated to Star Wars.  The place is dedicated to sharing the entire history of Science Fiction and it's influence on the world.
 The Museum also houses the Science Fiction Hall of Fame.  And look who I found on the wall:
 Many of the exhibits are interactive!  You could check out a model of the Death Star and push a button that would play "The Imperial March". 
 One of my favorite spots was this Space Ship/Vessel Informational display.  You could pull up any ship from your favorite Sci-Fi movies and get a full run-down on the ship and they would show up on this huge screen:
(It's quite dark inside, that is a shot of an X-Wing)
So, if you're ever in the Seattle area, check this place out!  I had a great time and enjoyed buying some fun Star Wars prizes for my kids in the Museum Gift Shop.

Amy - Star Wars: Visions

There's yet another beautiful Star Wars book out.  I know, you needed another one, right?  Well, I do.  I have this on my wishlist.  This book celebrates 30 years of Star Wars with a lot of artists and styles.  Lucas invited over a 100 artist to contribute new work based on or inspired by the Star Wars universe.  You'll find a wide array of characters and mediums.  Some of the artists include William Stout, H. R. Giger, Julie Bell, Boris Vallejo, and so many more.

Buy it from Amazon.
See lots of images from the book at StarWars.com.
