It's like family, only weirder…

Reading Boy

My son, at nearly 5 years of age, is big into the whole good vs. evil concept. He loves superheroes, Star Wars, and nearly every incarnation of fictional character one can imagine serving one of the aforementioned roles; good or evil. We played “superheroes” most of the day, Sunday. I…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

Chew-laf

Tuesday I transform into Chewbacca for a gig at Lakeshore Mall in Gainesville. There will be three other Star Wars characters there as well, and Jeff is putting it all together. It looks like I’m going to have a good time, though slightly claustrophobic and dehydrated. I tried the suit…Continue Reading

Garden State – Zach Braff Blog

My wife and I saw “Garden State” recently. It was only playing at Phipp’s Plaza for this area, but it was well worth the trip. We both enjoyed the film so much. Zach Braff (Scrub’s) wrote and directed “Garden State,” in which he co-starred with Natalie Portman (Star Wars: Episode…Continue Reading
