Star Wars Weekends

The Hyperspace Hoopla Another year of Star Wars Weekends is over. I didn’t get out to attend as much as I wanted.  Part of that I blame on the weather, but there was also some complacency on my part.  I’ve seen it before and, while I enjoy the event, there really aren’t any surprises left […]

The Star Wars Celebration V Review

Star Wars Celebration V ran at the Orange County Convention Center from August 12-15. Literally, an army of geeks descended upon our fair little town. The 501st Legion (Vader’s Fist) is a fan organization that creates replicas of the costumes shown in the Star Wars movies and wears them damn near anywhere they want. Many […]

Norah Jones Concert

Norah Jones brought her tour to the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre Tuesday evening for a mostly mellow 90 minute show. Relying heavily on her most recent album – The Fall – Jones hit the right tone with strong vocals and excellent performances by the band. Some of the early songs were slightly more aggressive […]
