Video Game Announces Same Gender Romance Option

The video game world, for all its mind-blowing technical innovation, can be a surprisingly traditional place. Earlier this month, Jeff Hickman, the executive producer of Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic, announced a major sign of progress: his team is working hard to create a same-gender romance option for game characters.
“I want…

The White House Response To A Petition To Build A Death Star Is The Best Thing Ever

The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn’t on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:

The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We’re working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.
The Administration does not support blowing…

Cate Blanchett Channels Princess Leia At Premiere Of “The Hobbit”

I’m not crazy, right? This dress she’s wearing is totally reminiscent of Princess Leia’s gown from “Star Wars,” minus the shoulder details and open back. I mean, look at those drapey sleeves and that mock turtleneck. George Lucas would approve and, naturally, for this reason alone, I love it. [Photos: WENN]

Now that Disney has purchased LucasFilm, Princess Leia has got to get with the program on that whole Disney princess thing. Lucky for Leia, the other Disney princesses are all happy to teach her how to be a pretty, pretty princess and wait quietly by until her prince comes to save her. In song, of…

“Star Wars” Characters Get Dressed To The Nines

High fashion often meets unrelated subjects — cats, for instance — so it technically shouldn’t come as a surprise that designer and illustrator John Woo has created a series of drawings that merges, of all things, characters from Star Wars with some of fashion’s finest. I’m not what you would call a fan of the…

The Olsens Channel “Star Wars”

So this is what the Olsen twins — Mary-Kate and Ashley — apparently think constitutes a Halloween costume. The pair dressed up — with venti latte cups-as-light-sabers in tow — as part of a new Halloween-ie video for their T-shirt company Stylemint. Even with the helmets on, the sisters manage to convey a languid boredom…

The Daily Ovulation: Little Boy Learns Who Luke Skywalker’s Father Is

My first thought when I saw this adorable video of a little boy watching “The Empire Strikes Back” and learning that Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker’s dad: Is this an old home movie of John DeVore as a kid? Alas, it is not, but it might as well be. Looks kind of like him and…

I’m just warning you: Your boyfriend is most definitely going to beg you to buy him this fancy new Star Wars x A Bathing Ape collaboration shirt. Especially if he once fancied himself as cool as Han Solo. Just let him know it’s going to be near impossible to get — unless he’s planning o…

Today’s Lady News: May The Force Be With You, Katie!

A first grader named Katie was made fun of by the boys at her school for owning a “Star Wars” water bottle. Now there’s a Twitter hashtag for #MayTheForceBeWithKatie and, one would hope, a squad of Storm Troopers showing up at those boys’ front doors. (Thanks, commenter Vivster, for the heads-up!)

“Star Wars” Corsets: Has A Sexier Nerd Get-Up Ever Been Made?

“Star Wars” Nerd Boy Heaven: The Slave Leia Car Wash

Breaking news: half-naked women — especially while washing cars dressed like slave Princess Leia from “Star Wars” — get publicity. We’ll have to watch “Attack of The Show,” which threw Saturday’s slave Princess Leia car wash fundraiser, to see if the program actually gets charitable donations, though. [HeatVisionBlog.com]…

You Know You Wanna See What Sexy “Star Wars” Burlesque Looks Like!

Oh, sci-fi dweebs, what will you think of next? “Star Wars” and burlesque are two subcultures which should not belong together, but somehow, these performers made it work! Except for “sexy” Jabba The Hutt, who will haunt my nightmares for time immemorial.
