The web site, Angry Yoda: Dismemories (yes, that’s the name!), creates crazy t-shirts with dismemberments from the Star Wars movies drawn like my […]
Dan Madsen, former editor of the Insider has launched a web site to host a letter to thank George Lucas for sharing his saga with us. While I wouldn’t go as far as hosting a web site solely for that purpose, I do believe my web site itself is it’s own ‘thank you’ to the maker. [...]
