Gainesville’s Finest

I don’t have particularly bad luck with police officers, but it just seems as though most of them don’t have very personable personalities. Friday night at Oodle’s in Gainesville proved otherwise. Two officers were eating at Oodles where my wife, son, and I frequent. Balthazar noticed the cars outside while…Continue Reading

Chewbacca 2007 Calendars for Sale

My wife’s wookie calendars are on sale through eBay just in time for the holidays (and the new year). I played the wookie, so I can recommend them for their charismatic character. If you’re a Star Wars fan (or a fan of 6′ 6″ red heads in wookie costumes), you…Continue Reading

The Apprentice: Trump vs. Vader

Looks like I’ll be watching “The Apprentice” tonight! A special Star Wars edition will be shown – I noticed in the previews that Chewbacca is sent packing…and his little pink suitcase too! Very funny, though I can’t say that I agree with Chewbacca’s release. Check out the trailer here and…Continue Reading

“Best Photographer”

The event takes place in Atlanta within the Marriott Marquis and Hyatt hotels (registration was actually taken care…Continue Reading

DragonCon 2005 (!!!)

Amy put some really funny Chewbacca pictures into the art show this year. We’re hoping for…Continue Reading

Pod People

Yesterday, Amy and I spent the whole day doing Chewbacca pictures for the upcoming DragonCon art show. I think this year’s project is going to be really great! Earlier in the morning, I had a doctor’s appointment to attend to. While I was there, I took the opportunity to ask…Continue Reading

A Day in the Life of Chewbacca

My wife is working on an art project for DragonCon this year. She doesn’t have much time, but her best work is done at the last minute. She has been getting her work into the DragonCon art auction for a few years now and she really loves it. I enjoy…Continue Reading
