Lucas: Star Wars Due In 3-D

Just when I thought Denis, Maya, and I would never see Nemesis in line a the Cheri again, it appears Lucas will re-release all the movies one per year in 2007. Will they be in order? I-VI? Hmmm...30 years since Star Wars in 2007 also brings into question how incredibly old I am getting - however Anya will be 3 and some change by then - perfect for 3D Star Wars.

Sci Fi Wire -- The News Service of the Sci Fi Channel: "Lucas: Star Wars Due In 3-D

Appearing as part of a panel of high-profile directors promoting 3-D and digital cinema at ShoWest, Lucas said he hadn't yet committed to a precise schedule, but hoped to have the first film ready for the 30th anniversary of the original Star Wars movie in 2007 and that he would then rerelease one Star Wars film per year in 3-D, the trade paper reported.

Fast Food Fever in FHM Magazine (and me of course)

If you didn't know - because I didn't show you a copy of the Teri Hatcher FHM Feb issue - well - Fast Food Fever had an entire page of the Pop 'N Taco featured in it - along with yours truly with a whole face full of "taco". BOOO YAH!!!

I got interviewed in December and they even featured the pictures from one of our Fast Food Fever Photoshoots. I'm a very proud 30 something married guy with a kid in FHM. I wonder when Maxim will call me up to have a photoshoot with actual models eating hot dogs? Who knows? It might just happen.

Thanks again to Philip Crandal of FHM for making it happen!
