Trish: GeekMom

Do you follow GeekMom?
If not, you should!
I love that I am not the only mom out there, that reads Star Wars EU Novels to my kids at night.  That takes all 4 of them to Comic-Con every year, in matching Star Wars shirts.  I also taught my youngest his ABC's from the Star Wars ABC Book.  My oldest son and I talk strategy for SWTOR while driving to and from school.  My 8 year old is named  Luke.  When I was in the hospital, after his birth, the nurse loved his name...saying "What a beautiful Biblical name...".  I was like Biblical?  I hadn't even thought of that!  He's named after Luke Skywalker, of course!  
AND-FINALLY...my daughter was very happy to read that other girls mix Star Wars Action Figures and Barbie.  Except, her Barbies hang out with Stormtroopers and R2!

Trish: "What's going on with that live-action 'Star Wars' TV series?"-via EW

At a press junket for the movie "Red Tails", Lucasfilm Executive Producer Rick McCallum, shared a little (very little) information about the upcoming Star Wars TV project.  He shared the (for now) title-  Star Wars:  Underworld.  (ooooo or awwww or both???? What do you think?)
Check out EW's article and check out the whole interview....It's very interesting.  Too bad we'll have to wait a long time before we actually get to see what this will be all about!

Trish: Ooops!

Ok...so you probably have noticed that the following posts are missing something (pictures)!  Apparently, picasa has linked all my albums and blogs and when I delete a picture from Picasa, it deletes it from my blogs too!  This is new.  Anyways, sorry for the incomplete posts and I will be more on top of things in the future! :-)

Trish: RIP Bob Anderson

The One Ring.Net has just posted that 'Legendary Sword Master Bob Anderson', has died.  
He was used on the Original Trilogy films, and it was revealed in the documentary "Reclaiming the Blade", that Mr. Anderson was in the Darth Vader costume during the lightsaber duel scenes.  
He was a very talented man and will be missed...

Trish: What to look forward to this year...

 TPM in 3D in Theaters!  February 10, 2012!
Like I've posted before,  I am cautiously optimistic about this one.  BUT-my kids could not be more excited!  Only my 13 year old has seen a Star Wars movie on the big screen.  So, they can not wait to see this!  AND-I'm excited to see the looks on their faces as they watch it!
August 23-26, 2012!
The hotel is booked, but that's about it, so far.  Not sure if I can make this a reality, but I'm certainly going to try!  If you haven't got your tix yet and want more info, visit starwarscelebration.com.
