I found this vintage Arrow Scholastic Book Services order form inside one of the retro ’70s books. You’ll notice that Nancy was ordering the Shaun Cassidy Scrapbook. Which proves just how much of a fan she was, because this slip was the bookmark in that very book. Maybe they gave the order slips back when they passed out the books… Maybe not. I prefer to think of Nancy as ordering an extra copy. You know, to keep one clean and drool free. Wherever you are, Nancy, we salute you!
While we’re talking about Shaun Cassidy, note the photos of him with Darth Vader, a Harlem Globe Trotter, and John Wayne which are found inside the book.
It’s cool – in the temperature sense – and lights up! Coming this fall.
Lucasfilm, Nerdist, Octagon, and eBay have teamed up to present Course of the Force, a lightsaber relay, where participants will make a journey starting from Santa Monica (beginning on July 7, 2012) and ending ino San Diego (ending on July 11, 2012 — just in time for Comic-Con International). In conjunction with the relay, running July 7 and through July 21, there will also be Course of the Force Charity Auctions, featuring memorabilia, VIP events and experiences and other cool items. All proceeds from the race and charity auction will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
If you can’t get to the relay, that’s OK; Chris Hardwick and co-hosts will follow the action from the Course of the Force lead vehicle each day, broadcasting live to the Nerdist platform, including its YouTube channel and StarWars.com.
Here’s a new short from Industrial Light & Magic, featuring the exclusive charity lightsaber and Chris Hardwick’s trip across Santa Monica, encountering different Star Wars™ characters along his journey.

“I never thought I’d be smuggling myself in them,” Hans Solo said of these chocolate candy bars. Yup, that’s Han Solo in Carbonite — in a chocolate bar.
