George Lucas petition to direct Star Wars: Episode IX… what’d Colin Trevorrow do to deserve that?

This was a surprise. Fans want George Lucas back doing Star Wars?

A petition on Change.org to have Lucas direct Star Wars: Episode IX has garnered more than 20,000 signatures to do just that (despite the fact that movie is already in the hands of Jurassic World helmer Colin Trevorrow).

Staying spoiler free for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ was hard, but I did it

I knew it wouldn’t be easy, but I did it.

Far too often my favorite shows are ruined for me. I knew about the Red Wedding massacre before it went down on Game of Thrones. I had the death of several Walking Dead characters spilled to me in advance.

One of the biggest challenges with those shows is that I worked really early hours, and couldn’t stay up to watch. So by the time I was able to see them, any surprise was inevitably ruined. It never takes much, just a random tweet or headline. Working in the media business, I can’t just unplug.

She’s the woman in the red shirt

Riding the subway to and from work, you see a lot of familiar faces. They come and they go.

The woman in the red shirt was different. It was the first time I’d walked to the train with a stranger, who then went on to share the entire ride with me. We got on the same car, changed trains at the same station, and ended our commute at the end of the line.

But what truly made it unique, is that when I arrived at my station for the journey home, she was there. And we did the whole thing again, only in reverse.
